This is a great place to stay in a quiet area. The rooms are standard rooms but clean and big. The bathroom is nice and spacious. I must say that the best thing the hotel had is the buffet breakfast, it has all you need :) By the way, watch out for the busy elevators which take forever to catch.

Hotel Rio is amazingly quiet and hidden from the outside yet it has a warm heart inside. Coming from Africa I find a home from home, I am comfortable. The only snag is the small beds found in most rooms

A new hotel, well priced, comfortable and efficient. Stayed at the Hotel Rio on a Thursday evening. Easy check in with friendly staff. If you are staying on the first or second floor, the stairs are quicker than the lift!! The rooms are modest but have everything you may need. I stayed in a single bed room which was fine.... More

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
