I stayed at the SYTE Hotel Mannheim last week during a business trip. Less expensive alternatives were sold out due to a large medical convention (PAIN !!).
The hotel is literally 100 meters from the Main Train Station (Mhm Hbf), which I discovered by sitting in a taxi and asking the driver to take me there. Needless to say he suggested I walk ;-)
The hotel is a lively place at ground level in the evening, with a relatively young crowd hanging out at the restaurant and bar (the term "young" revealing my not belonging to that group more than anything else). The decor is DARK and not to my taste, but stylish.
I retired immediately to my room. The rooms furnishing is well-chosen, tasteful, spacious, not over-crowded. I enjoyed a good night of sleep.
In the morning, a nice breakfast in the lobby restaurant - nice selection in a very small surface area, well done. The single elevator is a significant bottleneck in the morning around breakfast and check-out time. I gave up waiting and walked down from level 2. The hotel should encourage people on Level 1 and Level 2 to walk if they can.
SYTE Hotel was my second choice among the boutique hotels in Mannheim after Speicher7 was sold out.More
