Hotel has no own parking facilities. Had to find parking spot in densely populated residential area. Long walk to hotel through rain. Hotel has no lift / elevator. All rooms are upstairs.

The location is good and quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful.

The speed of the internet in the hotel could have been improved.

Overpriced for what it offers.

More ´´pension/bed&breakfast´´ than true hotel - not really for the business traveller.

I came to work for SAP Walldorf for a couple of days and found this hotel to be great, you can get to the SAP Walldorf office by walking 5 min, take the Sbahn - 10 min and then a bus which seems to be coordinated wiht the arrival of the sbhan - overall all great location and really nice hotell - good restaurante as well.

Staff very friendly. Attached restaurant offers excellent local food.

Need to boost internet reception for floors 2+3! As a minor point: There is no elevator should you arrive with heavy luggage.

Close to city center

I had asked for a non-smoking room but the room smelled of smoke.
