Hotel Aviva
Ranked #9 of 61 Hotels in Karlsruhe
Reviewed 27 June 2013

It was a mini heat wave when I arrived at the Aviva - and the small rooms combined with the lack of aircon combined to give a pretty poor nights sleep - just too hot and airless.
If it had been a cool night, then the small room wouldn't have been a problem, I suspect, so I dont want to mark it too harshly.

The staff were friendly and helpful, and I have to say the breakfast choices were first rate.

Aircon would make a massive difference, otherwise if I come back it will be in winter!

We had booked a family room but were given two doubles - all fine except only net curtains so glad it was a weekend and there were no office people in the building opposite. The gym, sauna and steam were so relaxing and well equipped. We had pizzas in the lounge which were excellent and the buffet breakfast was excellent- so much choice and very good - the best hotel breakfast of our ten day holiday. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with curtains!

The Hotel aviva has very friendly staff and the location is ok.surrounded by officebuildings the area doesn't have much charme.
My room was really clean,but we had the toilet and the bathroom in our bedroom,just seperated with glas.so you HAD to watch the person you shared the room with taking a shower or using the toilet,cause it was no seperate room.the breakfast was good,just too many people at once and not enough space.i also ordered a pizza which was really good.downtown karlruhe is like 5 minutes away from the hotel,but it seems there always is horrible traffic.
So the staff is really good just the rooms sucked!

We have stayed here often and without fail it is always a good experience. Helpfull staff, large rooms (for 3) and a proper, tasty breakfast included...The wifi worked well, parking is easy, we look forward to staying here after a long drive they are always welcoming and could not be more helpful...their language skills putting us to shame with our lack of German. I recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for 1 night in Aug and we thought the hotel was great. Very helpfull staff, clean and tidy reception area where we had a good breakfast in the morning. Room was clean and modern only thing it lacked was air con. We will stay here again.

Stayed here for two nights last year. The hotel is of a good standard, and staff very friendly and helpful (even when dealing with dripping wet motorbikers). Continental breakfast only, but loads of it.
Hotel is just outside the centre of the city so is quiet at night, but is close enough to get a cheap taxi into the centre.
Overall a very pleasant stay in a good hotel.

° Breakfast is the worst ever, all processed food.
° Wireless is not working properly or at all.
° The Hotel is at the end of the world, rather pay 5 Euros more and stay in the middle of Karlsruhe.
° Toilet and shower are essentially in the room, try having some privacy.
° I asked for a bathtub, not possible.
° They rent bikes for free. But it's cheap bikes, they almost broke down.
° Feels more like a B&B or transient hotel instead of a real hotel.
° There is nothing close to visit, the countryside is really awful.
° Ugly pictures in the hallway.
