For our purposes of visiting nearby family, this was an outstanding hotel. Good restaurants within walking distance. Also, although we didn't use it, the trains ran nearby. Room was beautiful. If you want easy access to shopping, this might not be the right hotel, but for us it was perfect. There was an elevator but because it was so small, we elected to climb the stairs which was good exercise. The hotel was recommended to us by relatives who stayed there last year and they werre equally pleased with the overall accommodations. We would be pleaseed to stay there again when in Stuttgart.Ventajas: Large comfortable room. Lovely breakfast. Very helpful staff.
