Steigenberger Graf Zeppelin
Travel Blogs from Stuttgart
We've been planning our driving trip in Europe to celebrate a milestone anniversary for several months now. I'd poured over guidebooks, travel shows and searched travel sites making reservations.

Historical Traveler Reviews Steigenberger Graf Zeppelin Stuttgart
De l'extérieur, il n'a pas belle allure, mais une fois à l'intérieur, il est génial. J'y suis allé tout seul cette fois, et normalement, les chambres pour une personne sont pires que les chambres " ordinaires". Mais à cet hôtel-là, ce n'est pas le cas, ma chambre était super bien orientée et avait une atmosphère agréable et chaleureuse. Personnel très sympa et serviable.
Excellent 1-person room
It doesn't look that nice from the outside but it's fabolous once you are in. This time, last week, I travelled alone and normally the 1-person rooms are worse compared to the "regular" rooms. Not here; excellent located room which had a pleasant and warm athmosphere. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent restaurants. "Olivo" , a 1 Michelin star rated restaurant which I didn't visit. " Zeppelino's" is a Mediterean Brasserie where I ate quite a lot. Then there is "The Zeppeling Stuble"; a cosy small restaurant which serves regional food.
I have seen quite a lot of hotels but was impressed by the personal touch of the Graf Zeppelin. I will certainly return to have a diner at " Olivo"!
We spent 2 nights in the SGZ during the world cup and we must say the best thing about our stay must be the fact that we also shared the same hotel roof as the German players, coach and staff! We experienced a HUGE crowd of more than 10,000 German fans gathering outside the hotel entrance for 6 hours waiting to have a glance of their team - priceless experience that was! So in the end we managed to snap up some candid photos of Ballack, Klose, Lehman, Jergen Klinsmann and many more. Although the getting in and out of the hotel could be troublesome with zillion people around but I was way too excited and priviledged to be complaining about it!
Great hotel in the heart of Stuttgart
We stayed here for one night in the month of May. The hotel is located directly across from the train station in the heart of Stuttgart. Close to everything. We had room 309 which is an absolutely superb suite. Even had it's one mini-gym. Service, food, etc. was all excellent, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
Fit for fun
The only thing wrong with this hotel is the view from the outside. Without the other positive tripadvisor reviews, I doubt we'd have gone in. However, I'm glad we did, we took a delux room which was very large with a superb bathroom. An exercise bike, weights and skipping rope were all 'amusing' extras for the room. The pool is very pleasant and the bar was good fun. Plus, if you don't fancy the fancy in-house restaurant there's a fantastic steak bar just across the road.
Graf Zeppellin is a very good hotel, located in front of the Main train station, at the beginning of the pedestrian street where all shops are located.
We arrived to the Graf Zeppelin with no reservation - just a prayer that a room was available. My husband and I had cycled through parts of the Black Forest and wanted to spend our last night in Germany in a nice modern hotel. What a fabulous surprise! As a veteran of the hotel industry of 14 years, I can honestly say the service in all departments was incomparable to anything I have ever experienced in the States. And the room! WOW - beyond spacious, great view, every concievable amenity (except a robe, but how minor of a grievance is that?)The cigar bar was great - and the waiter was so gracious to have the chef make a special request meal for me that was not on the menu. In a city preserving the history and embracing the future, the Graf Zeppelin is a great blend of old world hospitality and cutting edge modernism. BRAVO!!
Nice hotel, horrendous city.
Every comfort you could require in a hotel, and I stayed in the smallest room you could get, which still had plenty of space, was warm with great shower and not too pricey mini-bar.
The lobby is great for drinks, the breakfast plentiful and Olivios looked terrific although more for a romantic evening.
Take a swim if you get the chance, the pool is great.
Justa shame Stuttgart itself is so dull.
Excellent hotel to recommend
Hotel is facing the Main train station and just around the corner of main shopping street. Although it seems to be an old building this hotel is for sure a pure 5-* hotel. Nice pool, generous breakfast buffet with nice view and our King size room was spacious and modern, facing the courtyard. Perfect hotel for business and leisure, very friendly staff. Property has own parking garage.
We had a good deal with Stuttgart Tourism Office which is located at the beginning of main shopping street.
Stayed in a deluxe plus room. Ultra modern, complete with my own gym in the room. Great food in the lobby and located directly across from the Hauptbahnhof. Stereo w/CD player vs. the usual radio channels available on the TV. Sound-proofes from the traffic; wouldn't mind living there for awhile. Highly recommended!
