The hotel is a bit outdated. The hotel parking-garage is an adventure in itself, so small is the entry/exit! It has an excellent breakfast and is pretty close to the towns' center. Price and quality are in accordance.

I arrived at around 10 pm, and noted with slight unease that there are several "adult " clubs, a kebab shop etc on the same side of the road... slightly seedy area, I thought. It looked better during the day, and the parallel road has some nice shops, so that was better! The Hotel is also very dated (last decorated... More

We stayed here in June 2012, this was one of the few hotels that had airconditioning. We did not have the breakfast buffet, but it did look good. The room was comfortable, the shower was small, but it worked well. Great location and clean room.

Stayed for one night in the Ambassador hotel in Karlsruhe. I know the town quite well, so I was not expecting a quiet location in the Hirschstrasse. But it was worse than expected. Maybe a bedroom to the back would have been better. Parking is a problem and I recommend to go in the hotel's park house, if you want... More

Rooms were only reasonable and my adult sons bed was rock hard.No sleep for anybody due to traffic and street noise all night long. On the other hand the breakfast room and food are very good, just a pity we were too tired to appreciate it properly!!!

Located just few steps away from the town center, with a private garage with parking spaces big enough for huge cars. Very professional and kind staff (except the fat boy on duty at the reception desk during the afternoon). Clean and well appointed room. Free internet connection. Vert good value for money.

Could have been just me but I had a terrible stay here. They overbooked and when they realised lef tme on the phone 10 minutes while they sorted out logistics....I was dialling on international mobile. When I asked directions they went off again and back 10 minutes later. The place itself is quite cheap and basic...not as clean or up... More
