“Good value hotel in heart of Karlsruhe”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

Splendid small hotel near Station and Theatre. Basic but comfortable, and very good value. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff. If arriving after 2100, you need to phone and get a code to pick up the key from a box beside the hotel. All staff appear to speak decent English, so phoning is not a problem, but you cannot arrive late without getting your code.

My niece and I stayed for 7 nights on a business trip. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The room had two twin-beds and was very clean. Great free daily breakfast which included smoked salmon and a variety of cold-cuts and breads,fresh juices, yogurt, soft boiled eggs, and great coffee. Many German business people stay here and for the price of the room and ammenities it was an enjoyable stay. Walking distance to the famous Vierordtbad Spa which has saunas, steam room, heated pool and restaurant. Didn't need to rent a car (parking is a huge challenge in Karlsruhe) as the tram station was close by and of course, you can get a cab pretty easily.

Stayed in Karlsruhe using the Barbarossa as our base while attending the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.
The hotel is on a quiet side street three minutes walk from the nearest tram stop, a two stop ride from the main railway station.
I'd describe the hotel as quaint, basic rooms and facilities but the
staff were very attentative and welcoming and made our stay a pleasant experience.
Breakfast was included in the price and was of standard fare cold meats cereals breads juices and coffee. The breakfast room was open a reasonable time and we received calls from reception reminding us of the opening times and further offered to keep the room open longer for the late risers, a very appreciative gesture.
