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.

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.

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.
