Very nice, excellent location, just a short train journey to the messe and airport. The staff were very friendly, we worked until late and they still cooked us a pizza at the bar even though it was past time. All in all we were very happy and will 100% book this hotel the next time we work in stuttgart

Practical and effective

Hotel is a good choice for a night near the airport to catch a morning flight. It still requires a bus ride, subway ride, or a taxi to travel to or from the airport; but these are short rides. I recommend the bus as it stops directly in front of the door and takes less than 15min. However, it only goes every 60min. Taxi drivers won't like the trip as it is too short for them. Hotel is very clean, comfortable and has nice sized rooms. Breakfast is good, staff is friendly and hotel bar/restaurant is what you need. One disadvantage is that there are no other dining options nearby but an Aldi and a Lidl across the street allow last minute shopping of essentials.

Nice hotel, very clean. Great stay to be close to airport to catch an early flight. I wish they would have an early shuttle service, so taxi is an extra cost.
