The personnel are very friendly. Beneath the hotel is a parking place. The rooms offer everything you need included safe, minibar and free Wi-Fi but are rather old. Breakfast is OK. The location is fine.

Good hotel with good localization and service. Room was clean, breakfast ok, however hotel itself is rather old and need some modernization. Additionally during the night it was loudly due to some turkish young people who plays close to the hotel

We stayed on Karlsruhe on a family visit, and chose the Hotel Rio for its in-town location. At least during the week, this is primarily a hotel for businessmen (and women). We were pleasantly surprised by the comfortable, clean and quiet room. We had a double room on the back side of the hotel. Not much of a view, but... More

This hotel is comfy and cozy. The layout of the room was original and nice. It made the room feel more personal in a way. I had free wifi in the room . I got a welcome drink voucher upon arrival, and the staff were very attentive. They allowed me to have a late check-out and watched my luggage for... More

In July, 2014, we were searching for a hotel near the town where my husband's ancestors originated. I found the Hotel Rio in Karlsruhe. The name put me off, but we booked anyway. What a delightful surprise - we thought the Hotel Rio was lovely. We stayed in the annex in a large room facing the backyard. We were not... More

Great hotel for both business and leisure. Really friendly staff in reception, restaurant and bar. Parking in the basement, hotel is splint on both sides of the little street. I stayed in the newly added section on the other side of the road, facing the backyard and on 3rd floor. The room was quiet, large with a good bed and... More

Stayed here for one night in June 2014. Very quick and professional check-in. Room pretty small and economically furnished but fair enough for a short stay, and very clean. A bit noisy as I was on the first floor (street side) and there was some construction work going on out front. Breakfast buffet is abundant and tasty enough, service was... More

Very convenient location, cosy rooms, nice and professional staff and even a complimentary welcome drink but the cherry on top was the breakfast, the real feast:) To sum up, a very positive experience, I hope to come back.
