Very smart hotel in the pleasant district of Durlach, a short tram ride away from the main centre of Karlsruhe. The room was spacious and the bed comfy. Attached to the hotel is a thriving bar which has a large outside terrace. Useful to be able to charge drinks etc to your room! The hotel can sell you a €5,... More

Had a lovely business stay recently and would definitely use again. We were upgraded to the rooms along the road and wow, what showstoppers they are!

A modern hotel in a good location. Very clean with well appointed rooms. The beds are a bit small. The room darkening curtains are great and the rooms to the back are very quiet.

My son and I stayed here a couple of years ago when I went for a job interview. The staff was amazing and spoke English.

Karlsruhe is a small city, we went there for a romantic getaway, to see the opera and to go to the spa in Baden-Baden. The only really negative point was the ugly view we had towards a construction site. All other aspects were fine.

Dear "Nipa27"! Thank you for your friendly feedback. Unfortunately we couldn’t avoid the view of the nearby construction site. After the timely completion of the construction work, the view of the neighbor's house, will be even more beautiful than before! We look forward to your next stay!
