Good location with a lot of parking space and a small kitchenette. Stores and restaurants nearby. However, the hotel is old and there is no A/C (therefore I will return only in winter time). Rooms are in reasonable size but divided into two small less comfortable sections

I’m not sure which decade the bulk of this hotel was last decorated in, I’ll settle on early 80’s. The whole place is just old fashioned from the water features outside to the flowered wallpaper on the bedroom ceilings. Whilst it was clean and breakfast was ok, about what you would expect, for the price it is out of touch...

Good Hotel, room very big for two people, clean and confortable, right price in promotion, confortable bathroom, wi-fi good in common areas but very low inside the room, very quiet, you can have a good sleep.

Stayed for one night for business. Location: middle of nowhere. Wifi signal was too poor in my room. Bathroom ok, bed very soft. Restaurant served decent food but far from great. Friendly staff. Breakfast was very simple and sub-par. Decor is - at the best - weird/kitsch. Will find a different place next time.

Darmstadt is not the best city for hotels, this is the third visit to the town and we have had generally a sub-par experience in this city. The place was a relief after too high price or just rather poor hotels. It is a bit odd, it looked to us like it could be a hotel from some sort of...

I think it is important to evaluate hotels also in the context of the cities they are in. Hotels in Darmstadt? Not pretty. Still, the Contel hotel need special mentioning: Sleep quality: Bad. Mattresses too soft, light insulation not really there Air Condition: Non-existent. Summer visits will be painful and sweaty. will not help sleep either Fridge: Non existent. Hygiene:...

I was in Darmstadt as an exchange student and this was one of the few places around that offered a short stay option. My room was small but equipped with a basic kitchenette when I moved in. It was fairly clean and comfortable. However, the terrible service and rudeness of the staff soon turned out to be a nightmare for...

While visiting TU Darmstadt for research with several colleagues, we were put-up in the Hotel Contel, an unfortunate welcome to Darmstadt. Before arriving, the hotel management decided to place "House Rules" on us during our stay - based on some rowdy Australians (we're American) who stayed previously...apparently they went swimming in the hotel fountain/fish pond, ha! The rules forbid us...

If you are yearning for the American motel experience, the Contel is your place. I am only giving this hotel a two stars because the front desk staff was helpful and the room was clean, other than that this place was a nightmare. Upon entering the Contel you are greeted by a mote of green water and the light smell...
