I'm a regular guest at Radisson Blue hotels and looked forward to visiting this place again after some years. On the positive side, the renovated rooms and the overall atmosphere of the traditional hotel are great. The breakfast room is rather small and the breakfast buffet is o.k. (average). However, the hotel's amenities and services don't live up to four... More

Very clean hotel in a good location. Everything is very walkable. Two things keep it from being a 4. 1) In room shower was not the best experience. 2) In room coffee was instant. This may be a European thing, but a tassimo would be a huge upgrade.

We stayed at this hotel last month. We really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was delicious. Rooms pleasant and clean. The hotel still retains its old character but has all the modern things that one needs now; wifi, AC for hot weather and big bathrooms.

We have stayed at The Swartzerbok on several occasions to date. Our last visit was incredible! We arrived on June 2nd and stayed until June 6th. The hotel is old and very beautiful. The rooms are spacious, gracious and very comfortable. The food is delicious - breakfast - really spoiled for choice. However, it is the staff who made our... More

We stayed in Wiesbaden for 5 nights and choose the Radisson Blu. Yes it is very old, but very well maintained. We received a free room upgrade and the A/C was still working in early October which was nice. The Windows do open if you prefer. Breakfast was excellent and the bar was lively with good selection. The spa features... More

Loved staying here for a few nights. High quality service from the hotel staff. Centrally located just a block from the walking plaza with shops and restaurants. Rooms had working A/C during the heat wave of early September. Could use a bit of ventilation in the bathroom and a bit of water pressure for the shower. Trade-offs with old historic... More

Fell in love with this hotel. It is, most likely, the oldest hotel in Europe. Radisson have kept the place fully refurbished with some modern interiors mixed with the building's original design.
