Hotel Stadt Hannover
The Stadt Hannover's undistinguished exterior gives little hint that inside is a well-run small hotel of better than average warmth and comfort. Since it is only a three-block walk to the station, the Stadt Hannover is an especially good choice for rail travelers. Our room, Number 32, was perhaps a bit small but well laid out with a large window, a comfortable bed, good reading lights, a couch and an overstuffed chair. A staff that seemed to go out of its way to be pleasant and helpful prompt us to give the Stadt Hannover our "G" rating.

The Eden is another hotel not to be judged by its simple street-front façade. This modest little building connects to a series of larger ones which contain spacious, elegant public rooms, two restaurants, an Italian delicatessen, and 100 guest rooms with all the big-city amenities.
Our one quibble is that rooms are a bit staid. Much needed is the public rooms' lighter touch. Nonetheless, this is a well-run hotel; book it without qualm.
