Rated 5 out of 5 by Vincos An Architectural Gem
OVERALL IMPRESSION: One of the most successful conversions I have seen; this complex of buildings was formerly the Pelikan Pen Factory. The building is extremely interesting as 19th century industrial architecture and the adaptation has been done with sensitivity and style. High ceilings, glorious, huge windows and high-design fixtures and furniture definitely give this place an air of chic.
SPG RECOGNITION: Excellent. Upgrade to a Junior Suite with separate living area. Access to the Club Lounge. Breakfast is full beautiful buffet.
THE ROOM: Spacious and elegant with wood paneling, gorgeous fabrics and a virtual wall of windows.
LOCATION: A bit away from the centre but there is a tram line right outside the door which brings you to the train station in a couple of minutes.
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS: Service was professional, kind and courteous in every interaction.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SillyBilly10 Hopeless internet-Noisy Air Con
For a supposedly first class hotel, the wireless internet is terrible.
Slow and drops in and out.
Air con in the rooms is disturbingly noisy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Canada123 they fixed everything!!
Yesterday, when I checked in, i received a horrible room with steep stairs dividing the bathroom from the bedroom and a very odd layout.
Today, the very kind staff moved me to a normal room--great high ceilings, quiet, good size, very clean, everything great. While I didn't like the original room at all, staff were fantastic in listening to my complaint and making it right. Great work sheraton.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LauraLondonUK Pelikan Hotel Hanover
Great building converted with the rooms with lots of character and they are different from each other, great plus if you have to be here often.
Good offer in the fitness centre with plenty of machines and help from the staff.
Good sauna facilities and staff very helpful.
The only downside is that there are not bars around the hotel and the hotel bar has restrictive times

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy8 This hotel meets all my needs
Travelling in my profession this hotel provides everything I need. Very comfortable bed and pillows, fridge and kettle, good shower and toiletries, windows that open, a safe and overall very clean as hotels do vary! The gym is very good as well. And finally staff who are extremely polite and accommodating. I look forward to my return soon.

First time in Sheraton Pelikan Hotel and the experience was outstanding, from the moment we arrived to the counter until we got to the rooms. People was also very friendly in provifding support and help to know the city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rodras I loved the style of the hotel
This is something to remark, I am used to go to the Sheraton hotels around the world, and most of the times I find a sober hotel, old fashioned but this one in Hannover is absolutely great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by FloFromFrankfurt The good, the bad, the ugly
Couple things to say:
1. Entry from Parking Garage: You have to follow a complicated path through a tunnel, up an elevator, across a "bridge" to get to the lobby. After 2300, the door from the bridge to the lobby is closed for "security reasons". You only learn about this once you get over the bridge. You then have to walk back all the way, then up the ramp where you drove your car into to get to the front entrance of the hotel. This is pretty absurd, and the worst thing is that they only tell you about the time that the door closes when you reach it, not where your long path begins.
2. Food after 10:00pm. Restaurants are closed by the time; room service and limited menu at the hotel bar are all you get. Worst: limited selection at bar was even more limited last week at around 2300: None of the salads, none of the burgers were available anymore.
3. Room Atmosphere: Some kind of "smelly" material (plastic? cloths?) has been used in the setup of the room. The room had a certain smell and it wasn't very natural or nice.
4. SPG: I'm platinum; no presentation of local amenities at checkin, probably just got the points without choice. No room upgrade.
Verdict: Very nice building, interesting location, amenities and service really not up to the level.
