    Nothing.

    The room was great and clean. We could park our car in the parking lot. We really enjoyed our stay. The breakfast times from 7.30-11 are fantastic, a little later than usual and we could relax during breakfast.

    Nothing everything was lovely, I couldn't have asked for anything more than what I got.

    Really nice hotel in a central location with friendly staff and a good breakfast. Comfortable beds and decent bathroom with a powerful shower. All in all a good stay, will definitely be returning.

    The number of sockets in our room was a bit on the sparse side and it took us a while to find them in order to re-charge our smartphones and use the laptop.

    The hotel is very conveniently located in the centre of Schwäbisch Gmünd - close to the historic "Altstadt" with its lovely half-timbered houses, medieval churches, a beautiful town hall and an equally lovely market place. Parking is easy and cheap, staff at the "Pelikan" accommodating, pet-friendly and cheerful. Our room was nicely furnished and spacious, breakfast the next day very nice.

    The smallest room I have ever stayed in, but hey, I was just there to sleep. No air condition when it is 30+ makes that somewhat difficult. Only one, gigantic pillow.

    Location. Walking distance to restaurants and cafés...

    The hotel is really great, the only issue was there was no aircon and the room was so hot. Sleeping was very difficult and coming home during the day was impossible.

    The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was great. The location is terrific,

    Although we booked a double bedroom, access to the double bed was from one side (or the bottom) only! It is no fault of the hotel but if arriving by car, make sure your sat-nav is loaded with the latest maps. Ours did not seem to know that the main road had be sub-ducted under the city centre, and got very confused at both arrival and departure!

    The hotel is very central, with lots to see within a short walk.

    Actually, I have no complaints at all except that one morning, at 8 AM, the juice dispenser at breakfast was already empty!

    Room was larger than expected, staff very accommodating. Would recommend this Hotel very highly.

    The wi-fi was broken at 3rd floor and unfortunately for a couple of days we ended up having to go to the reception all the time for checking emails and such. It was frustating. However once it started working, it was fine in the room as well.

    Schwabich Gmünd is adorable and Pelikan is very close to everything you might need. My colleague an I shared a double room and there was everything necessary for a week long work trip. Delicious breakfast, good coffee every morning.

    The summer weather was hot, the room faced the afternoon sun and the room's ventilation was poor. When I complained to the desk person, she said they were in the process of addressing this, but not yet in all the rooms. So this is something to check on.

    Although I had a little trouble finding my way there due to a confusing street plan, the location was good, right behind the museum and a short walk from the train station

    Not enough parking at the hotel. When you are late you have to find a parking spot in the city.

    It is well worth the extra money to take one of the superior rooms,much bigger,more comfortable,better bathroom etc. The normal rooms are very small

    From the hotel it's a 5 min walk to the center. And it takes just 10 min to the railway station. Private parking is available at the hotels garage. Rooms are clean and the hotel staff is friendly.

    The eggs were dry. I prefer a room safe. But neither was a deal breaker.

    The location was great. Close to the marketplace, the train and around the town center. Staff was friendly and efficient. Breakfast was good except eggs were dry. Good coffee. Quiet. I would return. A jeweler across the street sold Schwaben rings. My grandmother spoke Schwaben dialect.
