Overview

The Review

One of Germany’s most evocative wine capitals, the city of Mainz looks like something from the pages of a fanciful storybook. The cobblestone streets, half-timber houses, Romanesque cathedral and flowing Rhine River appear unchanged for centuries.

On the banks of the Rhine, in the charming Old Town, the Hyatt Regency Mainz blends the comforts of contemporary design with a rich history. Housed in the 19th-century Fort Malakoff, architects mixed old and new elements to create a sensitive but modern design.

All rooms feature comfortable oversize beds and immense white marble bathrooms, and many have views of the Rhine and the Old Town.

Given Mainz’s wine-growing heritage, it is only appropriate that the hotel provides many options for sampling the local vintages. In the basement, the Malakoff Bar takes advantage of rediscovered light shafts for wine displays; it serves classic German fare. On summer days the Malakoff Garden is a romantic spot for sampling Malakoff-Bräu beer and cocktails, surrounded by the red sandstone castle walls.

Locals tout the hotel’s star restaurant, Bellpepper, for its theatrical show kitchen and cool terrace overlooking the Rhine. Most dishes are prepared in the wood-burning oven (fueled each morning with beechwood), but sushi is also on the menu, prepared daily by two Japanese chefs, Kazuo Okazaki and Ko Shindo. After dark, the clubby Malakoff Bar exudes a sultry air, playing up the Russian associations of its name with raspberry and gold hues, mahogany furniture and moody, mysterious art.

Although the city has many historic attractions, and a boat tour on the Rhine is not to be missed, the real reason to come to Mainz is to explore the Rheingau and Rheinhessen wine regions — the largest in Germany. Ask the concierge for help arranging daytrips and transportation.

Great stay
Reviewed 2 days ago

The room was great. The bathtub is inside a shower stall area which is really cool for kids. You do not have to worry about them splashing and making a mess. The room was big for Europe. We usually stay at an air b and b because of the size of rooms and food quality. After staying here my girlfriend could not stop saying I love hotel living. The staff is pretty smart and gets things right. When they get things wrong they try to make it right. FIY I would get the breakfast there and have them cook your eggs in butter.

Great Location. Great Rooms. Great Staff.

The rooms are clean, the staff is great and the location is great. They had a nice pool that our boys enjoyed and we had a lovely stay.

This was the beginning of a bike trip that we took along the Rhine and was a perfect starting off point.

The rooms were nice, clean and with a perfect view on the river Rhein. It was very hot during our stay but the climate control inside the building was accentlente. The breakfast was like a big brunch buffet and you could always get fresh cooled water with or without a taste during our stay.
There is a very nice spa area too. Only the area of the swimming pool needs renovation. There is a big water damage on the ceiling which is not nice to look at.

Wonderful location

This is one of my favorite hotels in Germany. Located on the Rhine river and in walking distance to the historic part of Mainz. Excellent Sunday brunch with great view over the Rhine.
Treat yourself to a River View room. Well worth it.

Wonderful place to stay in Mainz
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Everything about the Hyatt Regency Mainz was great. The rooms were clean, quiet, and comfortable. The hotel is in a perfect location right on the river and in easy walking distance to the heart of the city including the Gutenberg museum, shopping, cafes and restaurants, Churches, etc. Great patio overlooking the Rhine river We rented a car and hotel parking and in/out access was convenient and easy. We drove to Frankfurt and Heidelburg and also took a boat cruise on the Rhine so Mainz is a great base of operations for the region. The hotel staff was very helpful and polite. I would recommend the Hyatt Regency Mainz to anyone.
