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

Well located in Karlsruhe with access to public transport and shopping center is a very good alternative to Business short trips. Access from Garage to Reception almost impossible mainly with 2 big size lugages. Service very professional. Very clean room. Noises from ádjacent rooms some times disturbs (doors, bathroom, etc). WiFi service with frequent and regular interruptions does not correspond... More

I allways stay at this hotel when I am in Karlsruhe. The staff is very serviceminded, professional and helpful. They never disapoints you. The rooms are rather spacious and well equipped. The breakfast is also very good Central location with good public transport near by. The hotel will need some modernization soon.

Unlike most Marriott Renaissance's...this one appears to be taken over from a previous establishment. It is not a skyscraper...but a charming one of European architecture of yore. I really loved the room layout, and it remined me a bit of the Inter-Continental Chain. Room amenities were top notch. Overall sytle remined me of late 1980's to mid 1990's...and that's not... More

I stayed in the hotel for one night to visit friends in Karlsruhe. The hotel is connected via S1/11 to the trainstation and in walking distance to the city center. A shopping mall is close by. The service of the personnel is very good (technician, breakfast service). My strong advise however is to pay a few Euro more and make... More

Nice and spacy rooms with comfortable beds. Unfortunately the rooms near the elevators are not so quite. Breakfast variety could be better. Breakfast room seems to be small, since at peak time there are not enough free or clean tables available. The location of the hotel is a great advantage. It's pretty close to the main train station, tram stop... More

With 95 EUR, the rate is moderate. The rooms are clean and quiet. But more than a good night sleep, you cant expect. Internet is an issue - as in most of the Marriott Group's Hotels - the provide MyCloud is a pain in the neck. Connection is lost frequently, and speed is at the lower edge.
