I have just arrived here, the hotel is celebrating six days since opening.

The lobby interior is similar to the Moxy Frankfurt Airport (no surprises), but the rooms, beds and bathrooms are to a higher standard. It also lacks the idiotic semi-naked floor to ceiling pictures that the Frankfurt airport rooms have.

Recognition for me as a Platinum Premier was good, I was upgraded to a corner room with floor to ceiling windows. My upgrade expectations for the Moxy chain are very low it must be said, I'm not expecting a St Regis suite here.

All guests until April receive free breakfast, to celebrate the hotel's opening. As a reminder, Platinums are not eligible for breakfast at the Moxy only a $10 food/beverage voucher.

The air conditioning appears to be individually room controlled, which is very welcome in continental Europe where a lot of units have a shared central system.

The location is close to the other hotels here and is literally within the sprawling Deutsche Telekom campus, which is the reason I suspect the vast majority of travellers (including myself) are here.

I should add that the silly semi naked wall pictures are still there in the base room. My colleague without status did not get upgraded and mentioned it at breakfast.

The breakfast itself is very weak and I do not recommend paying for it.

Overall, still happy with my stay and would stay again here in Darmstadt.

Just returned here for a one night stay. This time given a 1st floor room with no upgrade (despite my preferences being a high floor, sigh - second property in a row to do this).

A change to note on my earlier comments: The free breakfast for all guests until April did not survive long, it has now been cancelled. I asked what happened and the staff seemed to indicate there was some form of confusion or glitch. Funny way of justifying it, but there we go.

I had a couple of stays here and encountered a lot of problems... Once they charged me multiple times and wouldnt want to refund the overcharges.. It took me months to get it resolved.
They don't allow early check-in at all. Hotel was empty on a corona weekend but i was denied a 30 minute early check-in. I paid and left and went to the nearby HIEX. I wont come back here.
