The hotel is very atmospheric. The staff is friendly, helpful and professional. The restaurant is somewhat a mixture of local cuisine and fine dining. We are sure to return next year as well... :-) :-)

We were looking for a place to stay on the way to Frankfurt Airport. What a find! While the room was small, it was clean and tastefully decorated. But what made the stay was the restaurant. The dinner menu had local flavour, was plentiful, and delicious!! And all this in a room steeped in history, with staff that were friendly and pleasant.

Book one of the three or four rooms in the annex which was completed this past January! This is a better experience than I have had recently in a hotel billed as a four star. Room 1 in the annex is a perfect, spacious oasis of calm where you will have complete privacy and spend a truly restful night or nights in peaceful sleep. You enter the room to a small entry hall with the,spacious bathroom with generous shower stall to the left.Past this is the bedroom with a small very well lit desk/reading corner, a double door clothing and shoe closet and the comfy bed. Everything is white and grey and so spotless it seems to have been built just for your visit. There is tv and wifi and the hotel restaurant is steps away. Service is personal and friendly, staff makes it known that they are willing to go out of their way to make your stay the very best. The breakfast buffet is not included in the room price but is well worth the additional fee for freshly scrambled to order eggs. At least four kinds of juices, several yogurts as well as assorted meats and cheeses and sliced vegetables are included in the buffet as well as a selection of breads and sweet rolls. Coffee and tea are piping hot and service is cheerful. Treat yourself to a beer on the back patio at sunset and watch the local crews as they row up and down the river,or the local teens in paddle boats. If nothing else, enjoy a beautiful summer sunset.

Very quiet, pleasant and comfortable stay. VERY CLEAN which is most important to me. Building has a lot of character and very good restaurant on first floor making it very convenient. Delicious breakfast buffet. Staff very friendly and efficient.

Nice hotel, breakfast, room, view, bed, bathroom, location, everything was nice and clean, staff was alright too. the horrible wificonnection was the only drawback, in my room it was almost impossible to use, and even in the breakfastroom/restaurant i was thrown out every five minutes, and had to log in with password and username every time (is that really necessary?) but: really nice place, fix your wifi-issues and it will be perfect!

Ja Sie haben recht, wir hatten eine Firma die sich mit der Wartung der des WLan nicht richtig auskannte. Wir haben gewechselt und 2.500 € investiert und hoffen sehr, dass es jetzt läuft.

I chose this hotel for typical German cooking and hospitality and I was certainly not disappointed. Copious portions of well cooked delicious food at a very modest price. Rooms spotless and beds very comfortable. Windows with electric shutters. Would definitely recommend to others

I travel a great deal on business and I am usually wary of cheap hotels. The Eishaus was a very pleasant surprise. Despite being lower cost than my usual hotels it was very clean and comfortable. The room had a balcony overlooking the river. Sitting in the sun all I could hear was birdsong and not traffic. The breakfast was varied enough for me to find something I liked. A must is to eat in the restaurant. Following the waitress advise I skipped the starter ands went for one of the house specials. It was great, well presented and tasty. I have added this hotel to my list of places to stay when in Giessen

We had a one night stay at this charming hotel on the banks of the Lahn river. It is, as it's name suggests, a converted ice house. Each room came complete with a flower filled, window-boxed balcony, that was small but made up for it's size by being lovely. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The included breakfast buffet was a large one featuring both hot and cold items as well as what I have come to think of as "the German sandwich breakfast" the room had a wonderful ambiance, and was filled with antiques. Breakfast could also be taken out onto the riverside terrace. It was one of the least expensive hotels during our trip - bonus! If we return to Giessen, we would definitely stay there again.

I washed up (literally- it'd been raining a lot and I was on a rented motorbike) unannounced but even in my dishevelled state I was made very welcome and found a clean, functional, single room via the elevator on the third floor of this interesting conversion on the way out of town, with decent, off street parking. The room had a walk in wardrobe, shower/WC room, TV, hairdrier, mirror, towels, soap, desk, chest of drawers, comfortable enough bed and (a nice touch) its own balcony. What a nice surprise to then go down to the bar/restaurant area, featuring a wealth of interesting period features associated with its former use and find a terrace overlooking the banks of a tranquil river, rife with bird song and rowers, on which to soak up some welcome late afternoon sun and enjoy a couple of beers. Down side was that although I later ordered some food from what transpired was a pretty popular restaurant, I had to wait a whole hour for it to arrive- I had only asked for one course and there was no explanation or apology for the delay- black mark. Buffet breakfast especially good- the usual cold cuts spread with a reasonable hot offer too. B&B 52 Euros plus tax- very good value. I loved my beers on the tranquil terrace but would probably make other arrangements for evening meal if I ever visit again.
