Budget Design Hotels in Wiesbaden – your Motel One
Wiesbaden is one of the longest-established spa towns in Europe, which gained its renown thanks to hot mineral-rich water from 26 thermal springs, the therapeutic effects of which were known back in Roman times. The city’s hotels today host hordes of spa holidaymakers attracted by the multitude of gorgeously presented bathhouses, where, steeped in a traditional atmosphere, bathers can float away from every worldly care. This may be tempting enough,
but if you just close your eyes and relax, you risk missing out on the host of sights and events that can make a stay at our affordable hotel in Wiesbaden so unforgettable. One must-see is the well-preserved historic architecture. A rich palette of styles and eras are embodied in villas, town houses and public buildings, of which the best are perhaps
- the Kaiser-Friedrich-Therme baths (art nouveau)
- the City Palace (neo-classical)
- the State Theatre (baroque revival)
- the Kurhaus venue (renaissance revival) and
- the Roman Heidenmauer walls, complemented in 1903 by a “Roman Gate”.
These and their like are each impressive enough in their own right, and together compose a lively cityscape.
If you’re looking for more excuses to stay longer in our Design Hotel, how about the packed programme of exhibitions and numerous museums, such as the Museum Wiesbaden with its outstanding collection of expressionist works.
And on the banks of the Rhine there are concerts and medieval markets in the courtyard of the old “Reduit” barracks, at the bridgehead in the Kastel district. While you’re there, it’s well worth making an excursion across the river to neighbouring Mainz, a university town characterised by a youthful vitality which forms a pleasant contrast to Wiesbaden’s studied elegance – discover which mood suits you best!
Day-trip destinations in the surrounding Taunus hills and the romantic Rheingau are well within reach from our Wiesbaden hotel. Schloss Freudenberg nestled in its park in the Dotzheim district and the Jagdschloss Platte are both worth a visit, while the harbour frontage at the Schiersteiner Hafen is a great place for a relaxing promenade.
And finally, any visitor to Wiesbaden really should take in the sight from the top of the Neroberg hill just outside the centre. Getting to the summit is a cinch on the venerable Nerobergbahn funicular. A technical marvel in its own right, it ferries visitors quickly and safely to the 245 metre-high summit and an amazing panorama of the city and its environs. Afterwards, why not round off your day in Wiesbaden with a local vintage in our One Lounge, after all, in vino veritas!
