    « Still disappointing... I hold up my note from my previous review »

    It has been my second visit...and I hope the last one. Hotel is located about 10-15 min drive from Stuttgart airport and 5-7 min from Filderstadt train station. It is not bad. However if you are willing to go outside for a walk, there is simply nowhere to go... Hotel is located in a bit remote location, far away from Filderstadt centre. At the corridor one can smell now very nice burned oil which will make you sick after a while... My room (#124) was small (as the most of rooms in the hotel) and not very tidy, there were lots of dust on the floor. Best Western should be praised for the making kettle (with tea-set) available in the room. Bed was too soft to sleep comfy. Anyway you need to get up early around 6 am, when the airport traffic starts and it is almost impossible to sleep when big airliners are taking off a few hundreds meters away. None of rooms has an air-conditioner so in summer in the small rooms is painfully foggily even with windows wide open. Free Internet access is too slow for daily web browsing routines... Positive part of my stay was buffet breakfast, although the selection was not great, then food was quite tasty. A minor annoyance is that seating is limited, so if you decide to eat your breakfast during morning rush hours, you will probably need to wait a bit to be seat. Price/Value Ratio: ~100€ per night with breakfast may be appealing for someone, but not in that hotel. Recommendation: Stay somewhere else if you only have such an option.

    « OK,but expensive for what you get »

    Stayed there on a short trip to the Stuttgart airport area. The hotel is OK, but not grand. Rooms are large, very simply furnished and somehow comfortable. Few points: - the shower is very difficult to tune... and be ready for getting it cold or hot, depending on your neighbours... This can be fixed easily and should be... - the corridor is noisy, with the open atrium, and you can hear it from the rooms. Breakfast is OK. I still found the total bill quite high for this level of service.

    « Excellent option »

    Conveniently located by Stuttgart airport with a very nice décor (Sophia Loren theme) and extremely helpful staff. The quality of accommodation and additional services are remarkable. The hotel bistro provides a very good alternative for dining.

    « Hairs, long hairs... »

    The hotel is just 5 min from the airport, so it's very suitable before an early flight. The reception and the restaurant aren't so nice, but the people very kind. I found the room very dirty, the bathroom pavement full of long black hair, and so the room. Nobody has hoovered that room, too bad. I think than cleanliness it's very important, my first in the list.

    « close to airport and highway very comfortable »

    everything is correct, friendly reception, spacious room, lots to choose from at breakfast, close to airport, exhibiotion centre and highway no dinner in restaurant but casa del sol is a 8 minute walk

    « The very low end of the scale »

    The room are clean, but no air conditioning and no minibar. Stayed there for summer and the room was hot as hell ... The television is German only (BBC world might save you for few hours) The whole atmosphere is just outdated and cheap. The breakfast is way of European standards (ibis and so). I doubt about the freshness and some of the sweets where still frozen on the buffet. The only good point is the view on Porsche and Aston Martin dealer just next door, and the cafe del sol nearby is a good place to stay as there is no real lobby in the hotel. I've been in best western in Europe and for the first time I won't recommend it to anyone ...

    « Very nice hotel...great connectivity »

    Stayed here for a couple of days in Feb 2016 during a business trip. Well-laid out hotel with great access & connectivity with a tram station right outside the main lobby :) Sumptuous b'fast spread and excellent WiFi - two major prerequisites for a business traveler. The front desk was manned by extremely helpful and focused team, who went beyond the normal remit to help out. Very impressed. For unwinding in the evening, the bar is a lovely place to hangout. Well appointed bar, with extremely inviting finger-foods. The service though could do with a little improvement. I will definitely stay here when i visit next!!!

    « Third world at best »

    How anyone could rate this hotel above one star is beyond me. This is my first night in Germany, I am here for the Porsche Museum. I just arrived here from 5 lovely nights in Rotterdam and Amsterdam. Those hotels makes this feel like a Hostel. How can an American branded hotel not have air-conditioning? The rooms are jail bare. Hard floors no carpet, not one piece of art on the wall, just bare walls. The gentleman at the desk was not clear at all. Parking made no sense.. the WiFi made no sense.. The front desk closes at night so you are on your own. This place was so bad I almost left. The landscaping looks like a very poor apartment complex for people on welfare. The hotel is cheesy at best. People talk of the food, some bad, some good. I would not eat here if it was free and delivered to my room by nude women. It just doesn't look like an appetizing place to eat. The place is so bad, how could the food be?? Hands down the worst hotel I have ever been in.. And I have traveled to third world countries that had better accommodations. The neighborhood is industrial, but surprisingly has a Porsche and Aston Martin dealer right next door. How can a hotel be next door to high end dealerships and be in such a poor state? In the United States this would be an hourly hotel that prostitutes and the homeless use... Even those hotels have air conditioning. STAY AWAY!

    « BEST WESTERN PLAZAHOTEL STUTTGART-FILDERSTADT »

    Although the person at the reception on arrival was NOT helpful, friendly or attentive (he most have had his bad-day that day) and the requested quiet room was not really quiet, the hotelroom was good. The staff at the bistro/bar was very friendly and helpful and the staff at the checkout the enxt day was also good.

    « Great Hotel....but. »

    Hotel was nice and very clean, it was extremely hot in the room though and there was no Air conditioner or fridges in the rooms. The Bistro pizza was horrible and tasted like you were trying to consume cardboard, on a plus side the breakfast was excellent with a large selection of fruits cereals, eggs and also eggs to order. In the room I had a queen bed was available, one side of the bed was so worn down it sagged, but the other side was better, I was so tired I just moved to the other side. The bathroom was clean and the shower was excellent. If they could only do something about the heat in the rooms and the Bistro food this would be a great hotel.

    « Any hotel will seem perfect after this one »

    If you like non-climatisted room without wi-fi (although advertised and confirmed in the confirmation), poor service and impolite/incompetent servers, lack of commodities (no ice available for the customers, you want a cold drink? there are paying vending machines), irascible receptionist when you call for the free shuttle (how dare you?), this hotel is the stuff. I was very surprised to find good review about the establishment.

    « Good hotel. Very close to Messe »

    The hotel is good and they run a free shuttle to the Messe, which only takes a few minutes. Rooms are a good size and clean. Breakfast was good and the wifi was good. Not much within walking distance but the guy in the restaurant was so friendly I could happily eat there each night.

    « Good for Business Trip Stopover »

    I've now stayed at the Best Western twice on business - both for an overnight stay before flying out of Stuttgart the following morning. Rooms are clean but quite sparse, no amenities in the bath like shampoo, hand lotion, bar soap, etc. Hallways are very dark. Internet seems adequate, but I was only checking email. For an overnight stay the property works fine for me. Breakfast is good with many options, have not had dinner at the restaurant. There seems to be very little in the area, so make sure you have a rental car. Complementary shuttle worked better (on time) for my last trip, the previous trip the driver was late and there seemed to be some confusion because we waited in the car for about 10 minutes before we left for the airport. The shuttle only leaves hourly, so that may not work for everyone.

    « Such a shame almost very good »

    Business hotel really rooms and facilities OK except room 418 where Wifi was a real pain to connect and once connected a pain to maintain. Otherwise pretty good, the bar service and restaurant service were good, the food was good in fact everything was good until checkout. The final account in Euro was as expected and agreed and payment was made ,when I checked the receipt at the airport I discovered that the hotel had converted the Euro amount to Sterling without my approval and of course to my cost!! My own fault of course I should have checked the payment slip at the hotel! The financial cost was not great however the cost to the hotel in customer trust will I hope be considerable. Be warned don't let them con you as they did me, make sure to insist that they take payment in Euro and avoid the 'conversion penalty' that boost profits at the customers cost.

    « Poor service »

    Overpriced for the amenities. Staff are unhelpful and inflexible. Now they charge extra fees for any check in before 3pm. I was told even if the room is free and ready at 2:45, still a €15 fee to check in at 2:45. Have used this hotel a lot in the past but never again. Staff eat in the main breakfast area with the guests in the morning ! I never saw anything like it.

    « Perhaps OK if you are driving or have a phone »

    I flew to Europe through Stuttgart on award travel, and could save 40,000 miles on the transatlantic flight and $100 or so on my connecting flight in Europe by staying an extra day in Stuttgart. I wanted to spend some time at the Mercedes Benz Museum but I didn't want to rent a car, so I booked this hotel because it advertised a free shuttle. I assumed free shuttle meant that I could get off the plane, go to the exit, look for a sign, and either find a place where shuttles to all the hotels were departing or a phone where I could call the hotel directly. Not the case. After some wandering about, I found the tourist information desk and they were able to call the hotel. Turns out, the hotel has an arrangement where they have local cabs provide the shuttle service. The advantage of this is that you get to ride in a Mercedes taxi rather than some form of minivan. The disadvantage is that there are no regularly scheduled departures and you need to be able to call the hotel from the airport in order to arrange for a pickup. The ride to the airport is a short one- 5 to 10 minutes- and from the airport you can connect to the S-bahn and travel anywhere in the city. If you want to avoid having to call for a shuttle, the 36 bus leaves the Echterdingen S-bahn station once every hour and the Bernhausen TUEV stop is about 300 yards or so from the hotel. Not that the walk from bus stop to hotel is a particularly attractive one. Basically you are walking through a suburban industrial park. Because the hotel is relatively isolated, there are relatively few good food options. I ate at the bistro is the hotel my first night. I tried the pizza, figuring that was relatively difficult to mess up. It tasted very much like a warmed up frozen pizza. In retrospect, I probably should have walked the half mile or so to the McDonad's or Burger King. The beer was cold and good, however. The second night I ate at the brewpub attached to the Plaza Hotel in Echterdingen and took the 36 back to the hotel. That was a better meal. Room was adequate. Cramped shower, no safe, but clean. Staff's English was at least as good, and actually probably better than my German. They were unable to provide much guidance on the public transportation front. OK for the price, but not easily negotiable without a car.

    « Modern, simple, but good place »

    Hotel is an about 15 min drive away from Stuttgart airport. I did not use the shuttle bus, but I understand that it leaves every hour from and to the hotel. Rooms are relatively small, but for sure large enough. Bed are reasonable soft and comfortable. Electric plugs are next to the bed and I think also the small desk. TV has all the usual channels, incl. CNN, BBC etc. Internet is Wifi based. I did not try it. Washroom has a walk in shower. Water quantity is good. The bathroom is well light. Breakfast is standard for German hotels, all the usual stuff. Orange juice was not very good, as I felt it was made from powder and you tasted the powder. Although it is close to the airport, you can keep the window open at night.

    « Shuttle issues »

    Many issues with shuttle service. We chose this hotel because of the shuttle service. We returned the rental car the night before our flight home. Front desk said shuttle would pick us up. We waited two hours. Then took a taxi. Wasted a lot of time. It is not a "best western" shuttle, just a van that has a small sign in window, no communication between shuttle and hotel. Frustrating!

    « A good choice »

    + WiFi just ok. Good shower. Ok towels. Free parking! Outside Umwelt-Plakette Zone. Near p+r stuttgart degerloch (12 Euro Car +4 persons, U-bahn included for all / day). - Average coffee and breakfast. Dark hallway.

    « A Great Place When Passing Through »

    It appears it does matter if you are passing through Stuttgart via the airport or one of the busy autobahns, this hotel is a great place to stay. It is easy to find and has plenty of free parking. The young staff is energetic, friendly, and all seemed to speak English. The free Wi-Fi internet was fast enough for all of my work requirements. Breakfast is free and offers a simple buffet - to include bacon and scrambled eggs. The room prices are a bargain too, so naturally they are minimally appointed. Don't expect anything fancy, but if you just need a good, clean place to stay that won't "break the bank" - then this hotel is your place too.

    « Great budget hotel for stays near airport »

    I stayed at this hotel because it was the closest hotel to the Stuttgart airport that l could book with Aeroplan points. I was expecting the worst as hotels near airports are usually pretty bad, but was happily surprised with my stay. The staff was excellent, professional and friendly. The room was very spacious and clean. The free wifi was wonderful - it didn't break up once during my two hour skype call to North America. The free shuttle to and from the airport is great... I believe it would be about a 10-15 euro cab ride. Also enjoyed the free breakfast which is a nice bonus. Overall very satisfied with my stay and would recommend for those looking for a place close to the airport.
