We are an American couple traveling for vacation in Europe. I speak German moderately well, my husband not at all. We stayed one night in Darmstadt, en route to a different location. My German friends told us that "no one goes to Darmstadt, there is nothing to see." Needless to say, we had pretty low expectations. We were driving a car and I will say that the one problem with this hotel was that you cannot drive up to the front. The location had our GPS very confused. We were also confused and didn't realize (until our second time stressfully round-abouting back through the city) that you need to drive down into the large platz parking garage in order to be able to reach the hotel.
Anyhow, once we were parked in the CORRECT parking garage, our stay from there was wonderful. I conversed in German while checking in and was delighted to find out that the employee we dealt with spoke flawless English. She was more than happy to speak English (which I do appreciate but find slightly embarrassing at the same time.)
Our room was great, it looked to be newly remodeled. We checked out the "fitness center" and wished we had brought out bathing suits. In the evening we took a walk through the "castle" across the street and found a really great beer garden called the Ratskeller. They have fantastic beer and food. We spent many hours there and then walked through the shopping district. The area was much livelier and vibrant than I would have imagined!

I missed my flight and needed an extra day. I explained this to the staff and she was very helpful in not only booking the extra day, but also at a reduced rate since I had already been there for over 3 days.
