Easy access to transport means (bus and train), clean rooms. Nothing special.
Clean and modern, easy to use room facilities. Easy to access from the train station. Free internet access which is speedy enough for watching websites and reading news but no good for skype or multimedia Small fridge with drinks (chargeable) which can accommodate a few small additional items. Public transport (which is extremely effective) free during the stay to the hotel and steps away from the hotel entrance. Staff friendly and helpful. Access to the parking facility not clearly signposted and charged additionally at 15 euros a day - this is not clear when booking via Kayak (hotel probably not responsible for this). Visitor has to choose between the noise of the air conditioning and the noise of the traffic if opening the windows. No facility to brew a cup of tea or coffee in the room. Speedier internet access available at a charge (not tried if really better than the free one).
Good location, easy access to train station, comfortable rooms. Portions of the building can be noisy at night (street noise), when requesting an iron for the 3rd time, the front desk simply told me maybe all the staff was busy and shrugged off the service request. I left with wrinkled clothes.
Great location next to the train / bus station Friendly stuff Clean rooms with comfortable beds and everything you need Wi-fi is slow and spotty
Good location, comfortable beds, very clean rooms and hotel, staff was ok but could of been better. Internet was very expensive and so was the breakfast for what you get.
The location to the railway /bus station.The staff were excellent and the room was comfortable and spacious.We were given a ticket on arrival which allowed free travel on bus and train within the Mainz/ Wiesbaden area. Bus/tram stop outside hotel. The price of breakfast.
Very comfortable and clean rooms. The staff was extremely helpful and we really appreciated the fact that we were given a free ride ticket for local buses and trains to Wiesbaden.
The attitude and service of the staff was excellent! The rooms were comfortable, and well maintained. N/A
Personnel friendly and helpful.
It was centrally located in Mainz near the Bahnhof with parking downstairs below the hotel. Reception personnel (except for Sunday morning) were not very friendly. No greeting, no smiling...I felt like I was an inconvenience. Also, I noticed there was only one towel in the bathroom for my wife and I. I called at 1600 and asked for another towel. I had to call again at 2030 because we still did not have another towel. Not a very good response for a 4-star hotel.
Excellent hotel in ideal location. Great value for money and the cleanest room I have ever had.
Clean tidy good location near the train station, but not close enough to hear the noise of the trains. Staff very efficient and friendly, no problems at all.
A very new hotel. Excellent view (some of the rooms), modern and good quallity fixtures. Very well located. Excellent price/quallity Relativelly expensive add-ins (parking, breackfast, internet etc)
Nice location; great staff. Mattress was uncomfortable, it sunk in the middle.
I liked the staff ,but no free breackfast inspite of high amount of mony . The river side was boring . Nothing to do .!!
We had a peasant stay!
Original lobby decoration, clean room, nice view, very calm place. The staff were very kind and helpful but inexperienced and not efficient. Problematic service, needs amelioration. We were definitely expecting much better from a 5* hotel. Clearly overpriced breakfast (choice and quality: can do much better). Average SPA quality.
Nice environment, clean, comfortable & quiet The double bed is relatively small, and the bed sink a little bit in the middle
Very professional staff, beautiful hotel, clean, wonderful pool/spa area. When we arrived, they only had one booking (instead of two booked rooms). They booked us directly themselves for the 2nd room. I hope that we are not charged twice for that room.
That it was situated next to the Rhine The extra charges, i.e. garage parking
location, room and amenities. great business center should not charge for internet access
Staff were friendly and efficient. Hotel was undergoing renovations and hence some facilities were not available or were relocated. Believe hotel should have informed us of this so we could have reviewed our decision to stay there. Also hotel used by air crews who are very noisy and inconsiderate.
Apart from being a wonderful hotel, I would like to state that the staff were the most friendly, courteous, polite people I have met in a hotel in a long time. They couldn't do enough to help in any situation, directions, taxi's etc and they also wished us, as Irish soccer supporters the best of luck for the game !!
Good breakfast and location Wi-fi at $20 a night.
Tea making facilities in room, central to city centre, easy access to bus routes, excellent breakfast but a little dear at €21 Poor bar facilities
Convenient, expensive, lifeless. Excessive changes for food. Look elsewhere.
Good location and comfortable room. Breakfast buffet was impressive cost of parking
Great location, easy access to Rhine River cruise departures and scenic wine routes. Mainz offers a variety of nightlife, shopping and food choices, all within easy walking from this hotel. Construction/renovation at the hotel appears to be completed. Added a very nice restaurant.
It's location was ideal-- Lack of use of a computer for internet. Not everyone has a laptop. Later learned that there seemed to be a computer available as airline crew members were using it. Did not appreciate the lack of knowledge about this computer and the attitude of the staff about using a computer. Was willing to pay a fee but that option not available.
They upgraded us to a river view room because we were there between the holidays. Then when they found out it was our anniversary, they left a fruit plate and bottle of wine in our room.
Service was too good. Everything was good.
The staff assisted my with all my desires, and even helped arrange for a replacement rental car! Absolutely the best hotel in the region.
Roomy room No wifi in room unless you paid
Rimelig hotell med sentral beliggenhet. Passe stort rom med gode senger. Tilgang til internett fungerte bra. Trivelig frokostrom med hyggelig betjening. Hjelpsomme personer i resepsjonen. Vanskelig å si. Egentlig ingen.
Nært til jernbanestasjon Gratis tilgang til Internett NRK text TV
Meget godt valg hvis du er i Mainz. Språkkyndig og imøtekommende personale. Flott frokost. Fint rom. Meget sentralt. Rimelig. Har bare godt å si om dette stedet.
Beliggenhet og service nei
the spa was excellent
very clean, good breakfast
Excellent restaurant Stairs in and out of hotel means hauling luggage. A luggage ramp would be a worthy addition.
This place has got a remarkable amount of lovely and surprising design details. You would not expect such an island of beauty in this area at all.
The staff always made me feel welcome, the first impression is always a lasting impression when one is greeted with pure professionalism. The staff is just great..........................................
The design, comfort, clealiness and the good treatment offered by the staff. Excellent and valuable breakfast. The location was not good, although convenient for me.
very pleasant staff, wonderful decor, and an exceptional breakfast. OUr children were leaving to return to Canada the following day and it was a wonderful way to end the summer, lingering over a healthy breakfast with great coffee. Also, the hotel gave a marvellous recommendation for a restaurant, where we celebrated my birthday - excellent food and just a 10 minute walk from the hotel - ideal!!! Thank you nothing
The facilities. Parking.
Clean, quiet room. Nice breakfast.
Staff answered my question immediately about church services in the vicinity.
that wifi internet was an expensive add on.
The room was clean. The price was to high and it did not have any facilities. Decoration was poor.
No coffee machine in the room with complimentary coffee for "early risers" like myself.
Clean, comfortable and modern. Easy free parking on site. No Tea / Coffee facilities in room. Breakfast an expensive option at Euro16.
Easy parking. close to bus stop to town, friendly staff It was a little hard to find - signage was poor
Good location for work on the west side of Mainz with easy access to the Autobahn system. And, a McDonald's across the street, as well as a large shopping center nearby. Breakfast is outrageously expensive. High cost of wireless.
all newly renovated and refurbished in an industrial area, not suitable without a car
friendly and helpful staff
No iron/ironing board, staff had problems supplying one
Thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the hotel. Excellent staff, good car parking and excellent restaurant. I would certainly stay again next time we visit the area. No
Conveniently located for my meetings. Friendly and helpfull staff. Good looking lobby and rooms. Too quiet, no ambience, no live music.
Proximity to the center of the town No free internet access and parking is too expensive!
Large room Not soundproof, in need of renovation, you only get free wifi if you are a HH member
Customer service No
very helpful staff, walking distance to city center,
Close to historic center and train station. Good alternative to staying in Frankfurt.
Outstanding hotel - very pleasant room within easy walking distance to main square and sights. Very good restaurant with exceptional range of food for breakfast. The quality of the food and cooking was superior to all other hotels we stayed in across Germany and France, including more expensive hotels! Very quiet room and friendly staff. A baby cot was provided for free, complete with rubber ducky which was a nice touch. Would definitely stay again.
very nice staff, good location no free internet
Expensive Internet: €22/day is a bit too much.
Near the center, friendly staff
Very friendly staff, quiet room, fast and smooth elevator. Due to a wrong entry in the databank, I was first given a room that hadn't been prepared by the chambermaid. The clerk apologized genially carrying my bag while taking me to a new room and gave me a voucher for a free drink for compensation.
the hotel was very clean and the staff exceptionally helpful. When we arrive the was no house keeping available and the reception staff came to arrange our daughter's bed. Very unfortunate that we were given as requested a no smoking room that has such an intense small of cigarettes and cigar that I had to keep the windows open all night and even spraying my parfume in the room many times didn't work. We got there late with a child who was very tired and had leave the following morning so couldn't be bothered to ask for a room change but I would have had to do it if I stayed another night. The smell of cigarette stayed with me all of the following day.
The location of the hotel. Free parking. The hotel is worth max. 3 stars
Central location, so easy to get to Schott Mainz. Lovely room Yes, the shower - the head didn't work properly and needs replacing
The Contel Hotel Mainz was very nice, clean, and the staff was friendly and were very fluent in the English language. The breakfast buffet was also excellent. The hotel wasn't easy to get to. We arrived at night on the train and had a very hard time finding out how to get there. It was not close to a bus stop so we had to walk up a steep hill pulling our bags. They need to provide a shuttle.
The breakfast The hotel is advertising as 4 star hotel but it looks like no more than 2.5 star. Very disappointing. The distance from hotel to Railway station is 10 min but in the opposite direction (up hill) is 30 min.
I like the view from the dining room where we had breakfast. A very comfortable hotel to stay. The breakfast was very good. it was a bit difficult to find or even get to if you carry a suitcase. Taking a taxi would be a sensible choice.
Doesn't look like much on the outside, but the interior was very nice and the room was large and looked newly renovated. Good breakfast. Lots of free covered parking. Was hoping for something closer to the old town of Mainz, but was fairly easy to go there by car (2 km away).
It is a nice, welcome hotel; very nice services; with a nice location and view;
I think the Breakfast was the best part of my stay at Contel along with the view from the restaurant. I believe its too far away from the city center and the room was too small and the furniture was not upto the mark.
Location, friendly staff, excellent breakfast
Excellent facilities, staff and rooms. A superb breakfast and park setting.
I loved the park like setting of the Hotel.
The hotel was in an excellent location for getting to the Frankfurt airport. On a Sat am, it took only 20 minutes, door to door. Might be worse during week days.
We loved this hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There's lots to do in the hotel, especially for kids. This is definitely my 'favorite' hotel. maby thanks for a great few days.
Rooms at the back are quiet and larger with balconies over the huge park and great views. Lovely bathroom and interesting modern room layout. Well run by the ever-present family team. Excellent restaurant which is well worth the high prices. Location is 10 mins out of town; busy hearty breakfast with groups of older citizens..
Fresh room, top class!
Friendly people Long (but nice!) walk to city centre.
The size of the rooms, the beds and the breakfast. The SPA area is nice although the decor of the pool is a little kitsch. The distance from the city centre (it's a 25 minute walk) and the fact that they did not clean our room.
This was a lovely hotel, beautifully located in a gorgeous park, within easy walking distance of the centre. The rooms were really stylish with a lovely view. Hotel staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. It was a real pleasure to stay in this hotel.
Quiet surroundings, excellent room and cleanliness, good breakfast, very helpfull staff Parking space was cluttered up with garbage containers, building materials and awkwardly placed pillars.
hotel staff is extremly friendly and helpful far away from the center, and difficult to find
very nice hotel,the staff where very friendly and helpful.the breakfest was included in the cost and was great.free carpark is included.that is terrific in mainz. when i had a beer in the bar the waiter used a overflow glass of stale beer to top up my new glass of beer,unfortunatly my german is not that good to have a go at him,that was the last beer i had that night
Parking pacilities were very good so was breakfast. It's a quiet setting.
Generally satisfactory hotel al reasonable price. Spacious and clean room. No disturbance by noise. Room was rather warm, although no heating was on. No individual temperature control. Carpet floor not optimal for cleanliness. Hotel organised internet not functional.
The location of the Hotel is good, and it has good facilities, and the staff are very friendly. The breakfast is also very good.
The room were beautiful, well equipped and big. The relation between price and benefits is very good. It is a little bit far from Mainz "downtown".
It was at the edge of Mainz, which kept it nice and quiet and easy to go in both directions: country or city. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I thought it was a great deal and I was more than satisfied with it.
Free parking was good It was good we had a car because it seemed slightly out of town? Overall a good experience here though
Breakfast. Not a super friendly staff. They did the basics, and that was about it.
Location and russian staff on reception
The best feature of the hotel is its location. It overlooks the Rhine and is a nice short walk (10 to 15 minutes) along the riverfront to the centre of town where the Guttenburg museum and catherdral are to be found. Mainz is a town well worth a visit and this hotel is as good a centre as any.
The hotel is perfectly located - couldn't be better. Just a 5-minute walk to the many shops, restaurants, farmers' market, & The Dom (cathedral) in the old town, a 15-minte walk form the main train and bus station, and literally across the street from the beautiful Rhein, where students, lovers, cyclists and runners can be found in droves. I had a room with large windows overlooking the Rhein river - it was fabulous. Nice and sunny in the morning, fresh breeze...and when the windows were closed, they completely shut out the noise of the city. The breakfasts were also very good - typically German - lots of great food to choose from. And the staff were very helpful, giving me maps and directions, etc. They also speak English.
High quality breakfast Far from the city center, parking place for extra fee, far from the hotel
If you go for the Rhine river trip, this is a good location for the hotel Quite far away from Mainz HBF
Very friendly and competent staff. Excellent quality:price ratio! Closets are made with good intentions but are not very practical
quiet, free car parking , close to city centre
Really good place: light and clean, very nice modern, design, surprisingly big rooms, nice personal and overall good atmosphere. The whole hotel is fully adjusted to disabled guests and it's impressive. No king-size beds in double rooms.
Good facilities. Close proximity to tram service from Bismarkplatz.
Very friendly staff. Large comfortable room.
Everything is great there. very good location. dvd player in the room - superb!!! Wireless internet should be free of charge
Quietness of the aera and easy to reach, near my destination
I liked pretty everything, the staff is friendly, the room big, clean and silent. The design of the hotel is interesting. I really enjoyed the breakfast buffet as well.
No fuss, unpretentious approach. A good, simple buffet breakfast with healthy options. Friendly, helpful staff. The modest noise from the nearby highway may bother some people. If you are a light sleeper, request a room on the back side of the hotel.
The receptionist was very helpful. The continental breakfast was excellent. The shower drained slowly
We stay at the Hammer am Bahnhof every year. Coming and going to the L. A. area these are our arriving and leaving stops in Europe. I knew Mr. Hammer, and I must say that the new management is at least as good as the old one, in serving their guests as it was by Mr. Hammer. Connections to all international train lines. Rine/Main ship tours. 20 minutes from the Airport FRA by train to Mainz.
It was very close to the train station. You could walk to the main part of Mainz in a few minutes.
Location, and we had a very nice room with a view over the transport center plaza. It was not noisy and made for interesting viewing of people, trains, buses, taxis, trolleys and bicycles all making their way to somewhere. It was picturesque with evening lighting. We used the convenience of the train station after sailing the Rhein from Mainz to Koblenz. We rode the train back to Mainz and were steps from the hotel. The restuarant was not open in the evening. It is difficult to find by car, but excellent for public transportation.
Location. Right across the street from rail station and tram stops
The convenience of the hotel to the old part of town , the rail station and to the airport.Enjoyed seeing old town and visiting areas close by.
Great location. Not noisy at all (unless we had the windows open!). Great staff, very helpful and friendly. The spa was not really much of a spa...old and not very appealing.
Great location in center of Mainz ,opposite the Train station it is great for futhrer trips to Rhein region.Great value for money, clean room with air con and comfortable bed+ good choice for breakfast,makes stay at hotel Hammer nice experience.We are coming back.
I like the room, fan and the warm water!
A big modern room and bathroom, where we found everything we needed. Highly recommended! One of the nicest hotels i have ever been, comparable with 4star.
Clean with decent size single rooms. Quiet and central location ideal for station and Mainz centre. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Great room, very close to tarin station and yet an easy walk to old city. I was at the Frankfurt Bookfair and it was no problem commuting from Mainz. It is also a very nice small city. No, all was well
Location was very good for us. Service was oké.
The reception staff was very friendly and helpful to answer questions on how to reach a specific location in the suburbs. The room was spacious and pleasant with a nice view on a square full of trees. Very comfortable bed. Breakfast ok.
The quietness - and the efficiency of the staff. The room - and the lobby - were a bit on the warm side.
no wireless internet in the room.
Good location, just few mins walk from train station. Friendly staff. Double room is along the main road, too noisy when the window is open.
A quiet and familiar hotel. Very clean. Breakfast was OK. There is no lift and the hotel ist far from the city center. Due to his location I consider it a bit expensive.
hotel was clean, breakfast ok, staff ok problem is the location - to far away from the center, busses are going in long time distances
good transport links and nice location
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was adequate and location is in close proximity to town centre where restaurants and bars are in abundance with lots of things to see.
Breakfast was great. Staff were freindly and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay. Not too far from downtown. Not one thing comes to mind.
Nice hotel, nice staff. little too far away from Congress Centrum Mainz
Well managed hotel, helpful staff and excellent varied buffet breakfast.
The very nice neighborhood, very calm and residential. The downtown is 10m by walking (descending the hill). Le cartier n'est pas loin du centre ville, il faut juste descendre la colline, pas très raide. A park no far from there, green areas
Reasonable price, Italian restaurant as part of it. Decor is a bit tired.
The staff was all friendly especially the owner who is very nice. They even arranged for a high chair for my son's use during the 2 weeks of our stay. There was no wireless internet as mentioned in the website. They said it will be installed next year. I also couldn't make a phone call or my relatives also couldn't mak a call to the hotel, don't know why.
