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.

Just stayed in the hotel for one night. Nice spacious and very clean room in the building across the entrance. The service at the front desk was great. They gave good advise. The hotel is just of the city centre but on walking distance. If you come from the train station you better take a taxi (about 9 euros) or... More

There were lots of tasty choices in breakfast and i really liked it. Service in front-desk was good. The staff was very polite. The location was very convinient and minutes away the city center. It was a very good experience overall.

I have recently stayed one night in this hotel and everything went very well. The hotel is within 10 minutes walking distance to the very centric and pedestrian streets of Karlsruhe. I parked easily right in front of the hotel for free. The hotel room was spacious, comfortable, clean and tidy. I found the breakfast was really nice, with a... More

This hotel is a absolut standard hotel, nice clean rooms, good breakfast, and good location. The new building front of the hotel is much more newer and nicer. I was here twice for a week in 2008, and that was a good time for me. I recommend.

I have stayed at a few places in Karlsruhe, and I find the Hotel Rio perfect for those weekends-away adventures with your spouse. Yes, the King beds are actually two twins pushed together, but the double rooms are bigger than the more typical European hotel rooms.

friendly, nice rooms, clean, very very good breakfast, comfortable beds to get better: there was "only" a caretaker at the check in on a saturday at 17.00 - some "cream cheese" at the breakfast, and some rooms with a bathtub would be great

Hotel Rio is close to Club Brasil where we went to see a concert. This was a 5 minute walk (also the tram stops just in front of the building) and it was a 5 minute cab drive from the station as well where you have loads of food options by the way. Arrival and check in was easy, and... More
