Travel Blogs from Stuttgart
We arrived at our hotel to a warm welcome and friendly people, but no beds. We camped out in the lobby. Most of spent that time sleeping like international hobos on the nice lobby furniture. When we did finally get rooms, they are super nice and adjoining. We napped a bit more, it being 4 am to our body clocks despite the 10 am shown on the room …
anti-climactic due to exhaustion. 3 am Atlanta time, 9 am Stuttgart time. Rooms not ready, really need a nap. Hoping a room is available soon. If not, the whole family may just drink some coffee and go for a walk and explore.
Spent a wonderful day visiting most of the attractions of this beautiful city - the market, the cathedral, churches, Little Venice, the Old Town Hall, monastery, and in the afternoon went for a lovely walk along the River Regnitz. The area is a photographer's dream and one we will always remember. Dinner at a ...
On our way out of the city we called in on the Porsche museum. Although not on the scale of the Mercedes museum, it was still interesting and well worth seeing. Because we knew time would be short, we only spent 2 hours here then made our way to Rothenburg. It was a very pretty drive but took ages and when we arrived we realised it must have been the wrong Rothenburg, because it was not a Medieval town. Had a quick walk around, couldn't even find anywhere to get ...
Arrived at the Mercedes Benz museum on the outskirts of Stuttgart at 11am and there were heaps of people there. Must say it is a very impressive place and so much to take in. We did 2 hours, had a quick lunch then another 2 hours. It was about 3:15 when we left and felt quite jaded, but found it so interesting. It started to rain quite heavily on the way into the city and the traffic was ...

Friendly, speak English, and did not mind an entire American family passed out on the lobby couches while waiting for the rooms to be ready.

Historical Traveler Reviews Steigenberger Graf Zeppelin Stuttgart
Leurs chambres pour une personne sont parfaites
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.
Excellents restaurants, l'Olivo, qui a une étoile dans le guide Michelin mais où je ne suis pas allé, le Zeppelino, une brasserie méditerranéenne où j'ai mangé assez souvent. Il y a aussi le Zeppeling Stuble, un petit restau à l'atmosphère chaleureuse qui fait des spécialités locales.
J'ai connu pas mal d'hôtels, mais le Graf Zeppelin m'a vraiment épaté par son côté personnalisé. J'y retournerai certainement, rien que pour pouvoir tester l'Olivo !
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"!
Unforgettable experience at the SGZ!
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!
Location is superb - possibly the best located hotel in town. We arrived at Stuttgart by train from Munich, so we just had to drag our luggages for 50 metres and then voila! the SGZ! around the corner is also the main shopping street , everything is just within walking distance. We did not even use a cab or a bus once.
Ok, the only downside is the room we got which was tiny because it was the last room available on expedia (the room right next to the spa) Otherwise, the facilities in the room were up to standard, room is very clean, bathroom is very decent and clean with toileteries and overall we did not have problem with anything.
The staff and their service were adequate. We wouldnt say it was outstanding service because the general atmosphere was too chaotic with German team staying on the same nights so the staff could not serve us properly. Their Italian 1 michelin star restaurant was very good - Olivio. They cooked delicious pasta and we ordered their set menu which is highly recommended! We were also waving at the German fans outside while enjoying our dinner - again the atmosphere was phenomenal :)
I dont think I will come back to Stuttgart again as we saw everything in Stuttgart within half a day. A visit to Porsche Museum was pretty good though , but still I would only come back again if I have to - and will be more than happy to stay at the SGZ !!!!
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.
I had a single room but it was comfortable and although facing the Main street, very quiet. Buffet breakfast was superb. I didn't try the Main restaurant Olivo cause I usually prefer to try local food. I therefore had once dinner at their Stube and it was really delicious.
I stayed in several hotels in Germany and I must say I was never disappointed but nevertheless I have got two questions:
1) Why, even in 4/5 star hotels you can find only German TV programmes or, if you are lucky, just CNN?
2) How come that the maids knock on your door at seven thirty - eight o'clock in the morning to make the room? In other countries I usually use "Do not disturb" when I want to sleep until 11/12 o'clock, but in Germany I am now used to do it even if I just want to sleep until 8.30/9.00! I find it very strage especially when there are electronic keys! There should be a computer programme showing who is still in the room ....
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!
