This hotel is excellent value for a stopover hotel. You can park easily next to the hotel. The rooms are very good isolated. We were next to the elevator but did not hear a thing. There is free wifi. The staff is very helpful and efficient (arrival and check out in 2 minutes). We also liked the wide choice in breakfast. I could not think of anything missing.
Just one thing. We booked a quadruple. In this case you will have two doubles. One real and another more like a divan-bed. I really slept well so no complaints about the divan. Still a pity as the room is big enough to fit in a real double.

Booked this hotel via the internet as it was about half way to our Austrian resort. The hotel is a bit off the main route, but not too far. The bedrooms are pleasantly decorated and spacious, very clean and there is free wifi for 24 hours. We found a chinese restaurant a few minutes' drive away. The best thing by far was the absolutely amazing breakfast - absolutely anything and everything your heart could desire - cold meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, yoghurts, pastries, breads, scrambled egg, bacon, sausage, boiled egg, cereals, teas (herbal, green, regular), coffee, hot chocolate, fruit juices. Wow! This was the best breakfast I have had anywhere and at this price it is a gem! Also meant we could drive through to resort without stopping to eat! Well done Hotel Aviva, if we go to this resort again, we'll be back!

Hotel in a good distance to the city center (Tram 3 about 10 Min. to go). Hotel with different size of rooms, some for singles are a little bit small. Breakfast is o.k. and people are very helpful in the hotel. For the price a good choice. Nice surrunding (forest) an nice restaurant near by (fünf).

Room Tip: try to get a double room if you are travelling allone

Was really surprised at how good this hotel was, easy to find, lots of nice detail like even down to nail files in bathroom and sweets and drinks in bedroom. Was expecting it to be nice but clinical and basic ,was very pleased, although no air conditioning there was a fan, quad room VERY spacious, comfortable beds, best breakfast ever had virtually every combination you could want, free accesss to emails. If I come to this part of germany again I would definately stay here a gain. Just wish the hotel chain in Calais I had stayed at had been as nice

I do have made several visits to Europe during 2009. There is no doubt that this was one of the best mid range hotel I stayed during my visit. Staffs were friendly (even though most of them didn’t understood a single word I spoke) and helpful. They do have a very good sauna bath in the top floor. The rooms were clean, room service was very good and internet connectivity was consistent.
Breakfast was well served and there is a MC Donald’s, and several Italian restaurants near to the place

The hotel is located rather off but I used this for some jogging in the forrest near by which is very beautiful! Hotel seems still to be under construction but not bothering to the guests. New rooms, modern style, clean an a great girl at the reception made this a good stay in Karlsruhe where it normally is difficult to find a decent priced hotel.
Note: You need a car to get there. Shell gas station and McDonalds just around the corner of hotel.

We stayed at the Aviva to go to the German F1, arrived late on Friday evening and were offered a Pizza supper - all good.
Good sized rooms, very clean. Fantastic buffet breakfast with too much to choose from - hot and cold options - each morning we spotted something we had missed the previous morning. Very helpful Reception staff. In the bar area was a laptop for free access - nice touch when you get back from the track to catch up.
We had two dinners during our stay - both restaurants within easy walking distance.
We had a great meal at the FUNF restaurant - everything from Tapas to a full restaurant menu, served inside or in the garden - part of the University Library - but don't be put off - the staff are really friendly and the food was all freshly prepared. Good value for money.
Not good value for money was the local Italian SAN FELICE. Located in a lovely garden, crisp white table cloths, lovely menu.
As a visitor to the area be prepared to pay for smaller portions of food than the locals are served and a fantastic scam on the wine. When you get the bill you are told that the Wine List prices are all TAKE AWAY PRICES and they add around 10 Euros to the listed price - also the Maitre D assumes after taking for the bill that all the Euros left are his tip - he tried to walk off with an 8 Euro tip on a 32 Euro bill!
