Thankfully, having someone with me who could speak German and lives in Karlsruhe. It was "easy" to find the hotel. However, there was some confusion at first. Since, I booked the hotel under the name "Hotel am Karlstor" later realising it was "Zi Hotel". Never-the-less, check-in was simple, and the check-in person on the desk, he was polite and speedy,...

The rooms are spacious, clean and most have windows with strategic view of the city. The staff are friendly and accommodating - cleaning is prompt. It is near the city center, shopping, supermart, restaurants, the tram station and parks. Even the amazing Karlsruhe Zoo is just a walk away. It is very convenient, whatever one's purpose in the city. Breakfast... More

Ok I was here on business for 2 weeks so my experience may be different to somebody on holiday or with a family. My overall experience was very good despite it being unusual for a hotel. Firstly the good things.  The internet was fabulously fast, the free breakfast Buffet was Marvelous and had much to choose from, the location... More

Had a hard time finding this hotel after we've booked it. The name was changed to 'Zi Hotel', but nobody told us. It wasn't mentioned on Tripadvisor nor on Expedia or otherwise. So we’d spend some time driving around the city, spending unnecessary parking tickets (and they are expensive in Karlsruhe) , etc. trying to find the hotel we had... More

Very confortable hotel, safe garage for your car, easy reach to walk to the center. The location of the hotel is easy to reach from the highway, and there is a free parking in the underground garage of the hotel. Short walk to visit the old town. The hotel entrance is not easy to find, even with the GPS. The... More

I can recommend this place. Me and the road trip biker buddy Dave stayed here for two nights on one of our epic voyages around Europe and upon arrival from the outside I was thinking, what have I done. You check in at a desk in a bar next door, then walk down the street a couple of doors to... More

We stayed there for one night in July 2015 on the way from France to Denmark. The configuration of the hotel is odd with entrance to the rooms different from the entrance to the lobby. Otherwise the rooms are fine and the breakfast is above average for this type of hotel. We regretted not having more time to explore Karlsruhe.

The breakfast here was excellent. The rooms were clean, modern, and comfortable, the staff were friendly and spoke English, with a friendly American receptionist. The location was good as well. The wifi was sporadic but free.

This is a perfect hotel when visiting the area. Close to public tranport and a short walk to many sites and museums. Karlsruhe is a very trendy city and has lots of things to do. Great zoo, parks etc.
