Being just myself on this visit to Baden Baden I was looking for something luxurious but cozy, small and centrally located. Mind that Baden Baden is not just a spa place, each corner whispers about the leisure walks of queens, kings, famous writers and celebrities from all around the world. Nothing blends more naturally that this little jewel, tribute to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry ahd his "Little Prince".
You are warmly greeted like a good acquaintance from the very beginning which accentuates this old that this beautiful villa just embraces you and beckons you to relax. Everything is French style, in the good sense of the word, very clean and very home like. The Little Prince winks at you from the painted walls, the plates in the restaurant in a relaxing, soothing atmosphere with classic piano music slowly playing in the background.
The hotel offers a great variety of rooms and apartments, being alone I opted for a superior room and just spend my first night there. On the bad side, they need to work a bit on the quality of the windows frames, which being modern is till a bit lower quality that you would expect, also important for noise insulation. The bathroom was very clean, though you would expect some good quality shampoos/douche gels and related so the lack of was a bit of inconvenience.
The hotel is in a perfect location, right next to the Lichtentaler Alee, very easy to find and also close to the shopping streets, city center and related. Everything is literally within 5 minutes walk and the personnel was extremely helpful in providing all the necessary instruction how and where to get. One note on the restaurant - the atmosphere is fantastic, the service is impeccable. The choice of food is excellent, however I was slightly disappointed by the quality of the food - it was certainly not on par with the ambient atmosphere and service. They literally try to do anything to please you but I would expect a bit more from the quality of the lunch and dinner I had there.
Overall I was very pleased with this hotel for the price they charge the overall experience is very good and I will definitely be going back again.
