Where to stay in Stuttgart: Waldhotel

Posted on 03. Dec, 2013 by in Destinations, Europe Travel, Germany, Reviews

My visit in the region of Stuttgart was albeit very short, but immensely enjoyable. Christmas markets, bratwursts, gorgeous German architecture and tons of history awaited, and I was very excited. So excited, in fact, that I had completely forgot to read about my accommodation.

Luckily, I wasn’t disappointed or badly surprised. Far from it.

Waldhotel Stuttgart: The Location

View Larger Map

Admittedly, the hotel is located out - way out - of the city center. However, that doesn’t mean it’s inaccessible  Just a short 15-minute train ride away from Hauptbahnof. The remoteness may be an issue for city lovers looking for a glitzy and festive weekend, but on the other hand, this location offers a relaxing, hustle-free stay. Bonus points for hearing the birds chip in the morning - something we, urbanites, don’t hear all too often!

Waldhotel Stuttgart: The Hotel

The hotel recently underwent extensive renovations, for the pleasure of the visitor’s senses.

The decor was redone in a modern, country-cozy way, with exclusive paintings from local artists and eye-catching additions like chandeliers and pops of colors. From the lobby to the spa, from the bar to the restaurant, no detail was overlooked.

In terms of facilities, the Waldhotel offers a tennis court, a gym, a spa, a lively piano bar and a restaurant whose emphasis is on high-end local specialties. The fact that the hotel is outside the city is therefore not a problem - you will find everything you need under one roof, jut a few steps away from the comfort of your room.

One of my favorite parts of the hotel, as you can probably predict, was breakfast. Few things make me happier than a vast selection of French pastrie, fresh fruits, BACON, a good latte and other delicacies in the morning - and the Waldhotel hit all the right note in this department.

Waldhotel Stuttgart: The Rooms

After a particularly warm and sincere welcome, I was able to check into my beautiful Classic room, where another personalized welcome awaited. Color me impressed! Anyone will tell you that the small attentions, in just about any area of life, make all the difference, and I can’t help but concur on this occasion.

The room was fully equipped with luxury toiletries, rainshower, flat screen television, safe, Nespresso coffee/tea making facilities and free minibar. My room also featured a gorgeous view over the surrounding forest, and certainly made for a nice surprise in the morning.

The room was airy, spotless, comfortable and, in all honesty, very hard to leave. I only wish I were able to stay longer!

    I don’t think I would like being so far away from the city. But it looks like a nice hotel indeed.

    I love that it’s in the heart of the country and yet so close to Stuttgart central.

      It’s a very easy train ride outside the city. Very doable.
