    « Difficult to give a fair rating »

    The Best Western Leoso has many things that are great for business travelers - so I was tempted to give it a 5 star rating. However the rooms are just so dated that 5 stars would be so much overrated. It is really a shame. What I liked + Large parking area including covered parking for 8 EUR a night - what a great offer for a city hotel. + Free WiFi with really good speed + Very friendly service - from check-in, restaurant service, breakfast service all the way to check-out. They really made my day. + Large rooms that are twice the average size of a usual hotel including a large entrance area. + Clean and quiet even with the street next to it (good windows). + Large flatscreen TVs with all channels you ever need + Lots of power outlets + Good restaurant with a cozy living room atmosphere (see picture) and again a very friendly service. Good wine list. + Fast and modern elevators + Pretty new beds - cozy and for a good night sleep. What I did not like + The room! It is soooooo 80s style and dated. What a shame. What could be done here in the space available. Why is there this large entrance and a small bathroom behind. This could be remodeled so easily with large walk in showers and make this hotel a real 5 star+ hotel.

    « Good for one night stay »

    Reception is helpful and efficient, the rooms big and clean. Big TV but only a few working programs. The swimming pool and sauna are good and have convenient opening hours. The breakfast was rich, the dinner dull one night and O.K. the other. The rooms are hot or climatisation out of order - much noise but no cooling. The rooms in lower floors and to the railway have a lot of noise. The center is only a few minutes away on foot!

    « Just a place to sleep »

    Only needing a stay for the night while travelling we came across the Best Western. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms are more then complete, just airconditioning is outdated and a bit noisy (We stayed during a very warm day). Very good international breakfast.

    « Great! »

    Hotel was a great short stay place to be in. All facilities are hoof. Plenty of room in the rooms. Staff are very helpful & attentive. My step dad passed away in Germany & the hotel staff couldn't do enough. Great place to stay.

    « Convenient hotel with great indoor swimming pool »

    slightly in need for update. the heating system always puzzles me. Great breakfast and friendly staff. A bit noisy due to the railways nearby. The spa and swimming pool are the best feature of the hotel. On walking distance of Ludwigshafen city and close to all public transport. Ideal for business.

    « One Night Stay with EF Tour »

    Average at best. Had higher expectations considering this is an international chain. Had dinner and boxed breakfast and food was fine, however, rooms were a little dated and the smoking balconies were packed and the odor made it's way into the hall and rooms. Perfectly fine for a one night stay on the way to somewhere else.

    « Vacation trip on Germany »

    Very nice personnel. Really good location, good connections everywhere - tramp, train, buss, car. I.e. Only 25 mins to Heidelberg by s-bahn. Good breakfast. But the location environment big minus, it was not nice at all. Rooms - the air condition was old and loud. The room was big enough but it as all rooms and corridores require renovation, no need for floor carpets, the walls were "dirty" yellow. We did not use the swimming pool but that looked ok.

    « You must read THIS »

    Don't be put off by the previous reviews I really don't know what some people expect......... This is the second or third time we have stayed over here whilst traveling to CZ. Our room was large with two double beds,air conditioned and free mini bar. It was spotlessly clean. Breakfast buffet is great vast choice available and dinner menu is good. If anything the portions at dinner are too big. "Nick" in the bar can't do enough for you and speaks excellent English. Car parking charges are not excessive for city centre and are advertised on the booking site. At least you know you car and goods are safe. This city centre hotel is what it is, a city centre business hotel busy in the week and quiet at weekends. Don't be put off by the negative reviews, I really think some people expect 5 star plus quality for 2 star prices.

    « GO SOMEWHERE ELSE! »

    This is one of the worst hotels that I have been to. Our room's toilet still had traces of feces in it, the wifi was terribly slow (and it kept on disconnecting), the room's carpet had stains on it, the plates in the restaurant were dirty, and there were no air conditioners in the rooms. Rooms are outdated, and If you have plans of staying here you ought to think twice. Don't come here, anywhere else would be better.

    « In need of a refurb »

    A functional hotel located in middle of city. It is though in need of a refurb and the décor is very dated. BEWARE of hidden parking charge and ask for room away from train line if you want any sleep.

    « Functional hotel for travellers »

    Hotel was clean and staff helpful and friendly. However decor was like something out of the 1970s, big long soulless corridors with what seems like infinite bedrooms off either side. Bed was not quite a small double but just a bit bigger than a single. Air-con noisy and bulky in corner of the room. Good for business travellers looking for somewhere clean to stay a night or two but wouldn't take the wife or family!

    « Great location for travel »

    This hotel is positioned next to Ludwigshafen train station and above a tram station so it is ideal if you want to explore the local area. The staff were friendly especially the bar staff. Rooms were well furnished and large. The decor is slightly dated but didn't detract from ease of accessing all facilities. Unfortunately didn't get a chance to try out the pool as too busy exploring the local Christmas markets Would definitely stay here again

    « needs a re-furb »

    Nice reception and restaurant but the rooms have old windows that do not muffle the road, train or airport noise! Rooms are adequately serviced and clean but getting tired. One night here is fine but just do not expect a new BW experience!

    « On route to the Netherlands, ideally located »

    We booked this hotel on route from Zürich to the Netherlands and for us it was ideally located near the Autobahn. Rooms were roomy, beds a bit hard, bathroom was ok and all neccesities. Personel was friendly and the breakfast room nice and the breakfast consisted of English breakfast items, breads, cereals, fruits, cold cuts, juices, coffee and tea.

    « Nice hotel next to the railwaystation in ludwigshafen »

    The rooms are nice and big with two twin beds a nice renovated bathroom with a bath and hairdryer. Further they have a fridge, nice desk little table with two seats. The room has airco and free wifi in the room. The breakfast is included and very good with scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, bacon etc. Different kind of bread, fruit, cereals etc. The hotel also has a little pool and sauna you can use. The location is very good close to the railwaystation so you can easily go to mannheim and heidelberg.

    « Not great »

    Nice size room. Thats about it. Aircon is noisy and useless. I'd rather have an older tv than the Singer aircon unit that looks at least 30 years old. Wifi dreadful - used my 4G phone connection as a hotspot. Maid service late - it was the afternoon and toiletries not checked - shower gel still empty!

    « "Old" Hotel, absolutely friendly staff. »

    I stay for 4 nights in the hotel. The first impression, when I saw the building: OLD. Ok that means nothing, perhaps the interior is much better, but when I entered the big disillusion followed. On the reception the staff was absolutely friendly and very helpfully. I wish this kind of staff would be in other hotels. Well I got my room key. The room: Oh where should I start. The corners in the shelfs were dusty. The door from the minibar was broken, not bad, but for a 4 star hotel....you know what I mean. The big problem, the air conditioner didn't work properly. I had a room to the south. All the day the sun was shining in. When you entered the room in the evening, it was so hot. I had luck, that it was possible to open the window. Otherwise I had to change the room. Next point: The windows. Only single-pane windows. in the front of the hotel you have the rail-road. To loud! Internet was not useful, to slow. The breakfast was perfect.

    « Pleasant but smelly »

    Stayed 2 nights on business. Took a non-smoking room, walked in, and the room was uncomfortably hot. The massive air conditioning unit was left on full power and on "heat" so I figured it wouldn't be a biggie, because there was a "cool" button next to it. Pressed it and the air blown out of the machine was the same temperature as when on heating mode, so I switched it off completely and just opened the window. Worked. The room service worked fine, minibar had a nice selection of drinks, restaurant was OK. I was pleased to see that the hotel had a sauna + pool area, which was nice (the showers could be redone). There was a problem, though. There was a damp smell everywhere in the hotel. I didn't notice it in my room so much because the window was open all the time, but did notice it as soon as I opened the door to the hallway. My clothes smelled horrible after the stay, and it was neither me or the cigarette smoke. Also, the wi-fi was unreliable at best. Kept disconnecting and was slow. A big plus, and absolutely the best part of the hotel was the staff. Very helpful, very happy, spoke good English, and especially the lovely ladies at the reception desk deserve a big thank you from both me and management.
