“Great value for money”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

Great hotel close to the center of Karlsruhe. Friendly and supportive staff.

Rooms are a bit small. Recommend to take a room at the back side of the hotel, the front side is noisy due to ongoing construction work.

Nice cocktail bar and good Italian restaurant come with the place.

Great breakfast buffet - part of an already good deal.

Guests can use a neighouring fitness center during their stay. Only challenge is limited opening hours during weekend.

Overall I can recommend this hotel, we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: choose the back side of the hotel

No problems at all during a pleasant stay at this hotel.

Room was large enough and very clean, bathroom also very clean. Breakfast was sufficient, though too crowded (it seems there aren't enough tables if everyone decides to go to breakfast at the same time). Cocktail bar in the evening was pleasant.

Staff was very friendly at check in and out. Good parking beneath the hotel, and free for guests.

Maybe one tiny drawback: hotel uses "old fashioned" keys and not magnetic cards, so you really need to remember that you must lock your door yourself, as not many hotels are like this anymore.

I would go again if in Karlsruhe.

Underground car park at the hotel good, reception staff very nice and speedy check in, got a half price cocktail voucher. Had dinner in the Italian restaurant underneath the hotel, gnocchi and macaroni cheese was delicious. The room was nice, clean and tidy, bathroom good, powerful shower. The room was too warm but air condition was good, noticed the hallways could do with a lick of paint. Breakfast included in price was good enough, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, toast, different rolls, juice, ham, cheese. Waitress came to offer free newspapers, all in German but a nice touch. Only problem we both had trouble with the free Internet, kept going off so in the end gave it up as a bad job, probably would stay here again. This was a business trip, stayed only one night on our way to Italy.

I stayed here on business for a week in February, and found the hotel to be adequate. Great location in relation to the city center, and to my office. Had a 4th floor room which was a bit small, but for the most part quiet. Friday evening it was a bit loud from the cocktail bar. Would image that if you stayed street-side, it would be a bit noisy with the road/tram (my room was on the courtyard side, and thus relatively quiet). The only problem I experienced was that the floor was very warm-- both the hallways and the room... I had the air conditioner on! The free wi-fi was great! Definitely a plus. I didn't take advantage of the breakfasts in the morning, but did dine at the restaurant. The atmosphere was nice, and the food above average Italian.

Stayed for two nights on a business trip in March, 2005.
Mediocre place with a 4-star rating derived mainly from a minibar in the room and a hairdryer in the bathroom.
Breakfast ok, staff a didn't care too much about cleaning tables or offering hot drinks.
Room rather small with an odd shape and a small, all marble bathroom - giving the whole thing a rather rundown look. Terrible room lighting.
My 'quiet' room out to the backyard turned out to be facing the ramp of a garage which made it rather noisy and not too bright. However, the street out to the front is a main thoroughfare, so it's noisy as well. Will not stay again...
