      Gutes Preis Leistung Verhältnis

      Alles soweit gut, super sauber, wie bei allen anderen niu hotels, bin immer wieder gerne da! Personal sollte etwas freundlicher sein, da ist nich jede menge luft nach oben. Buffet personal super freundlich. 10€ für parken, einfach zu teuer.

      Da ist noch Luft nach oben....

      Bei der Anreise bekamen wir ein Zimmer, welches noch bewohnt war. Wir bekamen ein anderes Zimmer, welches allerdings am 2. Tag gar nicht gereinigt wurde. Welch ein Glück! Ich habe nämlich vor kurzem 3 Tage in einem anderen NIU-Hotel Brick in Hamburg gewohnt. Dort wurde 3 Tage mein Zimmer nach mehrmaliger Beschwerde gar nicht gereinigt!! Ich wurde mit dem obligatorischen Getränke-Gutschein abgefertigt. Es scheint sich bei diesem Phänomen der "Nichtreinigung" und ein bundesweites Managementversagen der NIU-Kette zu handeln bzw. hier wird auf Kosten der verständnisvollen Gäste am Personaleinsatz gespart bzw. an der Hotelsoftware. Wenn man die Bewertungen hier und auf Google liest, weiß man, es handelt sich nicht um Einzelfälle. Auch beim Frühstück wurde in beiden Häusern nur sehr zögerlich nachgelegt. Das sehr bemühte und nette Personal, welches übrigens kleidungsmäßig von den Gästen nicht zu unterscheiden ist, ist überfordert. Die beiden Kaffeeautomaten in Esslingen waren tagelange teilweise oder gänzlich als "Defekt" gekennzeichnet. Mein Eindruck ist, bei der NIU-Kette läuft Einiges schief und wenn sich das Qualitätsmanagement nicht dieser Mängel annimmt, wird die Kette die guten Bewertungen nicht halten können. Es fehlt an Hotelfachleuten an allen Ecken. Schade eigentlich! Die baulichen Anlagen und Zimmer sind baulich top. Die Hartware stimmt. Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr nett. Das Marketing modern... Liebe Chefs in Hamburg! Da geht noch was!

      The best in Stuggart

      Where to start. The basis, The bedding: it is really comfortable with cushions, pillows, blankets, you have the impression of having slept in a cloud. The room is great. example: Sound isolation, USB wall outlets, Bluetooth audio system. The breakfast is excellent with a lot of choice and some originalities. The decor is great, from the bedroom to the reception. My children loved it because there are little games in the room and in the hall, good for families. Finally, as a point of improvement but I nitpick : there would be a lack of a terrace to take your coffee outside (for smokers and e-cigarettes for example) and the paid parking (10 €) could have been better indicated,

      Familien Treffen

      Der Parkplatz ist groß und geräumig. Leider gab es keine frischen Handtücher ( trotz Aufforderung) und das Frühstück war sehr einfach! Z.b keinen Speck zum Rührei . Gewöhnungsbedürftig … : kleine , hübsche Zimmer (ohne Schrank. ) Positiv: Neu und sehr modern eingerichtet! Freundliche Rezeption. Gute Lage : S Bahn , Bus
