The hotel is well located in the city centre with a short walk distance from the main landmarks, including the castle. The breakfast is quite varied and tasty. Only the coffee is rather disappointing. The rooms are nice, but one could expect from a classy hotel to have a coffee machine in the room. The wifi is working well, the... More

First thing I noticed upon arrival to the hotel is that there is no signage at the front door at all to indicate that you are at the ACHAT. If you cross the street, you can see a giant sign atop the building with the name, but at the front doors there is no signage at all. Check in was... More

Hotel is good, serves great food. Breakfast not suitable for vegetarians(Indian). Rooms are big and are clean with all amenities. Situated in a good location with easy access to market and public transportation. Nice view of city from hotel.

We stayed here instead of Frankfurt as we had few meetings in Karlsruhe. Nice location, just opposite tram station. Good breakfast with lot of options for vegetarians also. In the heart of the city. We stayed for 3 days and it was all pleasant. I will recommend for business and personal travellers.

Stayed twice for a week during the assignment in Germany. The lifts are scary and show years of service. Rooms are OK, nothing to write home about though. The hotel is located next to shopping centre and gym complex.

As a platinum Marriott member, I found this hotel very comfortable. It did lack a concierge level which was disappointing. The free breakfast was nice but did not include anyone else in my group & it cost 20 euros which is really expensive. There wasn't any place close by to eat breakfast. The tram stops right across from the hotel... More

As a Marriott Executive Platinum Premier level guest I stay in many Marriott brand hotels around the world. This one is one of the best in Southern Germany. The rooms are spacious and clean with all amenities and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is centrally located and because of this it is very easy to stay here... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for business. The room was comfortable and clean, and the hotel was located within the city limits so most things were within easy walking distance. As crazy as this might sound, the hotel's restaurant was actually quite good. The tomato soup was delicious and the regular cheeseburger was out of... More

The front desk staff is really well trained. They accommodated us almost right away although we arrived very early and the hotel was totally booked. We had a baby and therefore many additional requests- they really tried to do everything for us, that you! The location is great - a supermarket across the street, an ATM next door, only a... More

Stayed here for a night to see what Karlsruhe has to offer, which, surprisingly, was a lot! The hotel is about 1 km from the city center, completely walkable with plenty of sights to see in between. Free street parking around the block, although one side is pay parking on workdays (which includes Saturday here). U-bahn station right outside the... More
