From 1992-1996, I was stationed in Karlsruhe with the US Army. Returning after 20 years had me excited and curious. What's changed .... what's the same. Lots of things going on in your head. The last thing you need in a situation like this is to have accommodation issues. Lucky for us, within minutes of arriving, any fear of this...

I just stayed at the Novotel Karlsruhe for 3 nights as attending a conference. Great place! Great size room, good breakfast, nice fitness area, and everything work. Only the room temperature was slightly on the cold side, but when mentioning this to the staff, it was worked out.

This was the best Novotel we have stayed in Europe and also the only one we really have been treated better for being Accor gold card members from every perspective. It was a very good choice for one night stay while traveling from UK, we will return.

When travelling thru Europe we always choose Novotel and this one I think is the best we have stayed at so far. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent. The hotel was very clean and tidy. The location was ideal for us. And we had an excellent nights sleep.

Poor food quality at the restaurant for too expensive prices. The whole hotel smelled of oil from the kitchen (including the towels and the bed linen + pillows). The pillows were not comfortable. Friendly and helping staff. Hotel design was good and nice rooms

Very nice hotel located in the heart of Karlsruhe. With easy walking distance to the superb Christmas Market. The hotel is very clean and top marks on the spacious room, with bath/shower, sink and hairdryer, tea/coffee making facilities and mini bar. TV has a great range of international channels. The hotel restaurant served good food, though a quite limited menu,...

Great hotel..I have stayed here before and it was more expensive being so close to Christmas..parking is available at €16. Breakfast is €20 and worth it. We were entertaining a customer and decided to try the hotel restaurant.. The atmosphere was great. Service by a middle aged gentleman was first class..and most surprising for hotel food..the meal was excellent. Steaks...

This is a wonderful hotel which I have used on many occasions - room was spacious, modern and clean. Good choice at breakfast buffet. Check-in and out were very quick. Ideally located for the centre of Karlsruhe.
