Hof Ehrenfels
Ranked #17 of 41 Hotels in Mainz
Reviewed 17 July 2016 via mobile

The Hof Ehrenfels hotel offers good value for money. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Beds are fine. The bathroom is small but very clean. As it is a downtown hotel you can expect some street rumour. Breakfast is sufficient, however staff could be a little more present during breakfast rush hour (we had to clean a table twice ourselves to have a place to sit - which is of course not dramatic but not to be expected in a full service hotel).

Stayed: July 2016, travelled with friends

I only experienced the Weinstubbe and not the hotel. It was overall a nice experience: good German specialties and nice wine at very reasonable prices. Service very efficient and helpfull.
Friendly atmosphere

The hotel is in the old part of town next to the Dom church so expect some early bells ringing. It has a restaurant with a terrace which can be very busy.

The room was a bit smallish and there was a strong sewage odour when I arrived. After filling the various siphons in the bathroom with water the smell was more or less gone. There was a small desk and a small TV

The bathroom was OK with a shower.

There was no Wi-Fi internet in the room but there is in public spaces. Ask for the access code at the bar.

The breakfast buffet was OK with good choices

All-in-all a bit overpriced for what you get

A very pleasant and comfortable hotel which is very close to the Cathedral and Guttenberg Museum. Friendly service and good food in the courtyard. (the weather was warm- there is an interior Wienstubbe).Our experience differs from those above in that I only have a few words of German but the lady in charge was still very welcoming and spoke excellent English.My email booking was answered in English.The wine was excellent, too!

This place is a few moments walk from the Dom (cathedral) square and is atmospheric if a little dark. Our room window looked directly up at the Dom bell tower so it felt like we'd slipped back to the middle ages...but in a good way!!
The room was fine...the breakfast hearty with the usual selection of breads and cold meats, cheese and eggs etc.
The Dom bells were a bit noisy as they began ringing at 6 am but then seemed to stop again til about at 8 am from which point they rang every 15 minutes so not for the light-sleeper who wants a lie-in!

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs for the bells!

I have stayed at this hotel many times and would not consider another hotel in Mainz. The breakfast is ample and good and the meals in the restaurant are excellent. Drink the world's best white wine. I find the service friendly and efficient.This could be because I speak German. I wonder why others have not been pleased with the sevice. The explanation could be that the English of the staff is not good. Germans also do not behave and and are not polite in the same way as people from the English speaking world. I think that all Germans could have friendlier everyday manners.

It was a nice stay in Mainz. The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the train station. It was very easy to find on foot but wouldn't be if we had lots of luggage. The hotel was a lovely old pub with accommodation above. The hotel part seemed to be quite busy but the restaurant wasn't, which was strange as the food there was very good, in-fact we decided to eat there a second night and loved that experience too. Breakfast was good too, with breads, meats, juice, coffee, eggs all very satisfactory.
The room was large and very nicely decorated. the bed was very comfortable and everything was clean and working well.
We only have a few concerns about recommending this hotel but they are rather minor. The bathroom drains were a little smelly, but it is an old building. I emailed prior to arriving to find out the best way to get to the hotel and I had no reply, later to find out the owners don't speak much english. and that may also why they didn't seem over friendly.
I would possibly stay here again as I loved the location.
