We needed a place, close to the autobahn, to break a journey from Italy to the Netherlands. Pforzheim was in the right location and the Parkhotel fitted the bill. It certainly beat our expectations for an over night halt.
Reasonably modern and with ample parking attached, the hotel is located next to the river in the centre of Pforzheim. Adjacent to the hotel is a conference centre and a short walk away, there are restaurants and cafes which form much of the watefront if you do not fancy dining in the hotel.
Hotel itself was clean and comfortable and the staff (at both the reception and the bar) helpful. They also spoke very good English for when my German vocabulary ran out. The (superior) room was a decent size and had a minibar, safe and trouser press. It even had bath robes - a nice touch even though we didn't use them.
the hotel's website had a downloadable page that gave helpful directions to it. This mentions following signs for Pforzheim Zentrum AND the Hotel Direction System. We couldn't spot any sign of the latter but found it easily enough using signs for Pforzheim Zentrum.
Would certainly use this hotel again should the occassion occur.More
