Time for another snapshot, this time looking at the hotel experience at the qubixx stadtmittehotel, Schwäbisch Hall.
For those who have forgotten, I have two major travel writing styles:
- Trip Reports – These are full deep-dive reports taking you into the experience and the small things… as well as the big things!
- Snapshots – These are bite-sized reviews that show you the basic product in some nice gentle headlines (and normally, only images shot on the phone
Today, we’re on the Snapshot review. The full in-depth review is currently under the first draft (or as some might call it, I’m still editing the thing).
The hotel was booked for £181 for two nights. Booking was prepaid on Booking.com
The qubixx stadtmittehotel is across the river from the town of Schwäbisch Hall. It is near the main bus station, a 15-minute walk from the Schwäbisch Hall regional train station, or a good €15 taxi ride from Schwäbisch Hall-Hessental mainline station (where connections can be made for Stuttgart.
There was some minor confusion at Check-in when my details could not be found. A dig through the confirmations, and all was matching. Once the sign-in paperwork was complete, I was advised when breakfast was and where to get it.
I was also advised how to use the lift – as it had a keycard control to allow access.
The room was a pleasant surprise after the hotel in Stuttgart I had the misfortune to stay in, with a modern look, working air conditioning and some nice touches.
At the small desk, there are more outlets, including USB charging. Outlets are also bedside, within easy reach.
The external blinds can controlled from this location too – a useful thing as the room faced out onto the main road.
Wi-Fi capped out at around 3MB up and down – not the greatest experience, but at least it works. On the other hand, 3MB is par for the course for German hotels that I’ve encountered in the past.
There’s a TV in a room. Sadly, no Iron or kettle was in the room.
The hotel offered a self-service continental breakfast offering, made up of pieces of bread, yoghurts, meats and cheeses.
For catering options beyond the hotel – the town of Schwäbisch Hall was a short walk away.
The check out process was nice and smooth and the hotel was able to organise a taxi for me for transit back to Schwäbisch Hall-Hessental mainline station, for onward travel to Stuttgart.
The full review soon!
