I’m just back from a business-trip to Mannheim, where I have spent a night before travelling back to Hamburg. Mannheim is a city in the south-western part of Germany, the third-largest in the German state of Baden-Württemberg (after Stuttgart and Karlsruhe). The city is at the centre of the larger densely populated Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region. Mannheim is unusual among German cities in that its streets and avenues are laid out in a grid pattern, leading to its nickname “die Quadratestadt” (“city of the squares”). I decided to book a room in the Hotel “Wyndham Mannheim”, and it’s address is “F4, 4-11, Mannheim”.
After a day of business meetings guests are invited to rest easy at one of Wyndham Mannheim’s 151 modern non-smoking rooms with plush double beds. Complimentary Wi-Fi helps guests get a little work done before the next day’s meetings. Each room is outfitted with an executive work station, iPod docking station and flat screen TV, and non-alcoholic drinks from the mini bar are free. For breakfast, you’ll get complimentary international newspapers as well.
The “Wyndham” is situated in the heart of the historic city centre, not far away from the central station. Located next door to the main building of the Jewisch Community of Mannheim and in walking distance to the Rhine Promenade, the “Auf den Planken” shopping district and just minutes from Mannheim’s most favourable shops, restaurants, famous landmarks and attractions like Market Square and National Theatre, the Wyndham Hotel is a good starting point to explore the heart of Mannheim.
For business and leisure guests, getting to the hotel is easy, as both the Mannheim City Airport and the Frankfurt International Airport are an easy drive from the hotel, while major transportation hubs like the RheinNeckar S-Bahn are just minutes away.
I enjoyed to stay here even though the slamming doors of the neighboring rooms were irritating for a four-star hotel. Breakfast was acceptable and the staff was really very friendly. The lobby houses a bar and a cozy lounge, where it is easy to relax while drinking a beer or having a look at plenty of interesting books about design, architecture and photography. Apropos: I took some photos of the hotel. Have a look and enjoy!
