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
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.
If you go for the Rhine river trip, this is a good location for the hotel Quite far away from Mainz HBF
