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.

This is a conveniently located hotel. Service particularly at reception was superb and it provides free printing which really helped. However do avoid paying for WiFi, as a local SIMT with data would provide you a much better, faster and more reliable service at a far cheaper price.The WiFi is so horrendous, it is literally nearly unusable and a huge...

This is mid-market business hotel. I was booked to a superior room - clean, nice size, comfortable bed. Breakfast was ok - room not big enough at peak time, poor replenishment and poor staff attention regarding getting a cup of coffee as you have to go chasing. I ate in the hotel one night - solid, reasonably priced. Biggest downside... More

Arrived here late evening - dead tired after driving from south of France and booking the hotel on the road. We were met by a cheerful receptionist that made us feel welcome from the first second. Super room - junior suite - fitted our family perfect. Excellent service at the hotel bar. Delicious breakfast the morning after and once again... More

For my revisit to Kalsruhe I chose the same hotel as first time. Very nice hotel, close to the university and with tram stops just outside hotel. Spacy, quiet rooms and the breakfast was delicious. Only thing, wi-fi was slow and unstable in my room.

I stayed here for a couple of days during a business trip to Karlsruhe in the winter and it is a decent hotel with cosy and comfortable rooms with central heating that kept us warm even with heavy snowing outside. The location has lot of shops and restaurants around and the commutation options are also decent. Restaurant offered decent breakfast... More
