just off the beaten path, perfect for getting to downtown Hannover, or biking walking

Viva Creativo was even more than I expected. It was a cross between a boutique hotel and a bed-and-breakfast. The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful on the weekends and during the week. I stayed Saturday-Tuesday night (4 days) and it was great every day.
Each room had a different decor, and the grounds were amazing. There were fruit trees, at least half a hectare (one acre) of grass, multiple ponds with fish and fountains and full plantings. It was exactly what I wanted in a quiet, middle class/upper middle class safe established Hannover neighborhood. This is perfect for a business traveler like me who wants quiet; or, for a family with or without children.
If you want to walk across the street to a trendy club, then Viva Creativo is not for you. You can jump on the frequent, clean quiet bus for a 4 minute trip to the street car/subway line that takes you directly to the center of Hannover. Or you can walk 12-14 minutes, or borrow one of the hotels dozen free bicycles and ride the 5 minute bike trip yourself. I used the bicycle daily for 4 days, and rode on the bike paths, along the rivers with no car traffic, and explored.
