Great German Hotel Experience

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 2, 2011

Stopped in at the Hotel on my way back from the Christmas Market just to say hi to Klaus who I got to know during my two stays there in the last two years. The Hotel Schwan was my first experience at staying at a small, locally owned German hotel. After getting used to eating a typical German breakfast, walking up the last flight of stairs to my room (elevator only goes up to the third floor) and using liquid soap for all my cleaning needs I came to really like this hotel. The rooms were nice, named after types of grapes and had nice wood flooring. I liked the beds but didn't like the fact there wasn't any sheets (I think this is a European thing). You only get German TV but you should be out touring the city or sitting out on the platz drinking a beer and watching the world go by.
If you plan on visiting Mainz for a night or two the Hotel Schwan is a wonderful experience.

Unique Quality: Two items make this a good hotel to stay at when visiting Mainz: location and the owners.
The hotel is located next to the Gutenberg Museum which is right by the cathedral (Dom). It is probably a 15 minute walk from the train station and can be hard to find since it is tucked away in a corner. Our Gps unit keep getting us near the place but we could never seem to see it. If you drive you will park in a parking garage across the street and pay around 8 Euro (I think). Since you are located in the center of town it is an easy walk to all the most interesting sites to see.
The other reason to stay there are the owners. Klaus speaks fairly good English and is the breakfast cook and your host in the evenings. His wife struggles at English but tries her best. Now that I live in Germany and visit Mainz fairly often I like to stop by and say hi. They almost always offer me a glass of wine or a beer. They are nice people.

Directions: Attached to the Gutenberg Museum.
