Excellent LocationPosted Aug 31, 2013 on Hotels.com
A very pleasant few days, walking out onto the square being a delight. The room was a little dark but spacious and with good facilities. The facility to make drinks, not common in Germany was most welcome. The breakfast may seem expensive but you can live most of the day from it!

The middle of HildesheimPosted Aug 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were very happy with this hotel, a step out of the door and you are thrust into the middle of Hildesheim and what it has to offer. Wonderful restaurant, the food was excellent and the hotel itself is unique with a beautiful and comfortable decor..

Fantastic!!Posted May 28, 2013
Pros: Exterior décor, location, staff, value.
Location: Smack bang in the middle of the Old City.
I absolutely love this hotel! You cannot ask for a better location, building or staff. Our room overlooked a market square that's been in use since the 1300s! The staff is the most accommodating I've ever seen. If you visit this town, you simply must stay at this hotel.

Great location, rooms can be very noisyPosted May 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a large market square facing room which had a nice view but all the noise along with it. The insulation is quite poor and the rooms are also in need of a little refurbishment. All in all it was fine though.

At the heart of the AltstadtPosted Dec 16, 2012 on Hotels.com
There are hardly enough superlatives to describe the Hotel van der Valk in Hildesheim. First, the location on the Marktplatz could not be better, especially with the Christkindlmarkt going on. At breakfast we sat at a table overlooking the Marktplatz where we could look out at the spectacular architecture and the snow falling on the Market...so beautiful! Our room was very comfortable and the amenities superb. The staff was knowledgable and very helpful. The breakfasts were wonderful, especially the omelets. Happy hour in the bar was a great plus as was also the free minibar. We would return in a heartbeat!

Excellent service in a pleasant location.Posted Aug 17, 2012
Pros: Helpful reception staff
Location: Facing the town market square.
The reception staff took the initiative to be helpful. my son's bike on the roof of the car was too high to enter the underground car part and one of the reception staff who spotted it ran out to tell me and kindly offered to put the bike in a safe place.

A great central locationPosted Jul 18, 2012 on Hotels.com
The Van der Valk is a lovely hotel with a great location for the shops. It's surrounded by classic, traditional wooden buildings and a great mix of bars and restaurants. The hotel is stylish with a lovely, lively bar and a great wood-panelled restaurant serving a comprehensive buffet breakfast. The only minor niggle is the slightly dated bathroom fittings - whilst clean they are slightly old fashioned.
