II Conclusion of contract, contract partners, statute of limitations

1. the contract is only concluded upon confirmation by the hotel. The hotel is at liberty to confirm the room booking in writing. 

2. the contractual partners are the hotel and the customer.

3. all claims against the hotel shall become statute-barred one year after the commencement of the regular limitation period of § 199 I BGB, which is dependent on knowledge. Claims for damages shall become statute-barred after five years irrespective of knowledge. The shortening of the limitation period shall not apply to claims based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the hotel.

III Services, prices, payment, offsetting

1. the hotel is obliged to keep the rooms booked by the customer available and to provide the agreed services.

2. the customer is obliged to pay the hotel's applicable or agreed prices for the provision of the room and the other services used by him.
This also applies to services and expenses of the hotel to third parties arranged by the customer.

In the event of a change in VAT between conclusion and fulfillment of the contract, the price may change accordingly. The amount will be rounded by the hotel. If the period between conclusion and fulfillment of the contract exceeds 4 months and the price generally charged by the hotel for such services increases, the hotel may raise the contractually agreed price appropriately, but by no more than 5%. In the event of errors in price information, we reserve the right to make an adjustment and refer to the current price list.

IV. Withdrawal by the customer (cancellation) / non-utilization of the hotel's services (no show)

1. the customer's withdrawal from the contract concluded with the hotel requires the hotel's written consent. If this is not given, the agreed price from the contract must be paid even if the customer does not make use of contractual services. This does not apply in the event of a breach of the hotel's obligation to take into account the rights, legal interests and interests of the customer, if the customer can no longer reasonably be expected to adhere to the
contract as a result, or if the customer is entitled to any other statutory or contractual right of withdrawal.

2. if a date for withdrawal from the contract has been agreed in writing between the hotel and the customer, the customer may withdraw from the contract up to that date without incurring payment or damage compensation claims by the hotel. The customer's right of rescission shall expire if he does not exercise his right of rescission in writing vis-à-vis the hotel by the agreed date, unless a case of rescission pursuant to clause IV. no. 1 sentence 3 Rescission by the customer exists.

3. if rooms are not used by the customer, the hotel must offset the income from renting the rooms to other parties and the expenses saved.

In this case, the customer is obliged to pay at least 80% of the contractually agreed price for bed and breakfast. The customer is at liberty to prove that the above-mentioned claim did not arise or did not arise in the amount claimed.

V. Cancellation by the hotel

the use of the hotel's services may jeopardize the smooth operation, security or public reputation of the hotel without this being attributable to the hotel's sphere of control or organization, a breach of I. Section 2 above.

4 We reserve the right to withdraw from the contract or make an adjustment in the event of price errors and refer to the current price list.

provisions, i.e. up to one hundred times the room rate, up to a maximum of EUR 3,500.00, and for money, securities and valuables up to EUR 800.00. Liability claims expire if the customer does not notify the hotel immediately after becoming aware of the loss, destruction or damage (§ 703 BGB). the above clause 1 sentences 2 to 4 apply accordingly to any further liability of the hotel.

The hotel shall not be liable for loss of or damage to motor vehicles parked or maneuvered on the hotel property and their contents, except in cases of intent or gross negligence.

All highlights within walking distance!


Discover Mannheim

You can explore almost all the highlights of our city on foot. Friedrichsplatz, one of the best-preserved neo-baroque and art nouveau squares in Germany, with its emblematic water tower, the new art gallery and the "Rosengarten" congress and event center, is one of the liveliest and most beautiful places in Mannheim, and also the start of the shopping mile "Die Planken".

Going to the opera

The Nationaltheater Mannheim (NTM) is less than 200 meters away from our hotel. It is one of the largest and oldest municipal repertory theaters in Germany. With the biennial International Schiller Days and the Mannheim Mozart Summer, as well as around 350,000 visitors a year, the Nationaltheater Mannheim is the flagship of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region and reaches a broad regional and national audience.

Visit the castle

Mannheim's baroque palace (now the university) is also within walking distance. With a length of almost 450 meters and an enclosed area of six hectares, the extensive complex is one of the largest palaces in Europe. Mannheim Palace is the second largest baroque palace complex in Europe after Versailles Palace - and has exactly one more window than its French counterpart ;-)

Designed as a pedestrian zone, the Planken is Mannheim's main shopping street. It is the most frequented shopping street in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region and is one of the top locations in Germany in cities with a population of around 300,000.

Enjoy nature

Even if you like to spend your free time in the countryside, it's not far away. Mannheim's Luisenpark, with its more than 3,000 trees of 130 different species and a sea of more than 200,000 flowers in spring and fall, is the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Our house

Art Nouveau façade of the hotel

Our charming 3-star hotel is located in a listed Art Nouveau building in the center of Mannheim. It was built between 1902 and 1904 and used for the first fifty years as a residence and representative house of the Speyer brickworks. From 1953, Mrs. Mack (née Binz) began to gradually transform the house into a hotel, always ready to do everything she could to ensure her guests had a pleasant and relaxing stay in Mannheim.

In 1976, Helmut Binz, Mrs. Mack's nephew, took over the management of the hotel. He initiated an extensive renovation process that continues to this day. Since then, an elevator and air conditioning system have been installed, the staircase and Art Nouveau façade restored, the roof gables renewed and the rooms renovated several times.

All this work means that today our hotel shines in the best light. With 47 comfortable rooms, mostly renovated and equipped with air conditioning, flat screen, WLAN and modern bathrooms, as well as our special highlights, the "Tower Room" and the "Junior Suite", we offer you the room with the right ambience for every occasion.

At the beginning of 1996, I, Christian Binz, took over the management of the hotel from my father and since then I have been passionately continuing my family's tradition of pampering our guests with the best services and making them happy!

We look forward to your visit.

Your Binz family,

Christian Binz
