LOCATION & ATTRACTIONS NEARBY *** Located in central Karlsruhe, near busy streets, few shops and large shopping centre. Car park is just next to the hotel, but II had difficulties to spot it as signs were not clear at all. It took me good 15 minutes to go back to the same place and find my “green door”.

We came as part of a Trafalgar tour group. We requested to have someone fix our bathroom sink but no one came. Air con was not working either and a girl came to give us a lever so we can open the window and since we were on the first floor and the hotel is right next to the train... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a bus tour that we were on in Germany,Austria & Switzerland. This was definitely the best hotel that we stayed in on this tour. The location is very good, just across the road from some convenient shopping areas, a nearby restaurant and local transport station. The reception staff were very polite... More

Booked 2 rooms (1 Double Bed + 1 Triple Bed ) and stayed for 2 nights and then again for 1 one night. Quick check-in. Rooms were clean and everything was neatly kept. Staff was friendly and co-operative. Will definitely stay again in future. Elevator is very fast which in other Hotels are very slow. Good.

As other reviewers say it's not a great hotel in itself. The rooms are good, restaurant is very nice and the facilities are what you'd expect. But I found the service exceptional - making my stay much more pleasant and enjoyable than I'd expect. Highly recommended!

Right? So in that case it is a great hotel. The... More

Walking into the hotel it immediately felt like putting on an old pair of comfy shoes – don’t expect the latest and greatest or complete luxury at this hotel! That said I was made to feel very welcome and had no real complaints. Check in was very efficient and the receptionist was even apologetic that as a Marriott Rewards platinum... More

I recently stayed at the Renaissance Karlsruhe Hotel for nine days in Karlsruhe on a business trip. I have stayed at Renaissance hotels in Asia, Spain and the US, I would not rate this on the same level as the other Renaissance hotels. Rooms were clean, breakfast was excellent just does not have the ambiance that you expect in a... More

The hotel is a tram ride from the main railway station (3 or 4 stops). Don't try and walk. It's too far. The hotel staff are very customer focused and both polite and friendly. The rooms are fine, clean, quiet and come with all that you'd expect of a 4 star hotel. The bar area is small with a limited... More
