If you are visiting karlsruhe, the Blankenburg is a must stay. The room we stayed in was huge. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was impressive. The only reason for not giving it five stars is the limited parking at the back. Only four tight spaces. Beware when going to places like Karlsruhe as you could end up with... More

Plus: - location is excellent. whether you are on a business trip, or just sightseeing. Conference center is 5 mins by foot, two excellent restaurants nearby (Jose (Portugese) and Ali Baba (Syrian-Lebanese)). Schlosspark is also 5 mins away - a pleasure for romantic strolls and jogging. - breakfast is really great: various food, including vegetarian/healthy options (low sugar, low fat)... More

Hotel is positioned in the middle for the walking tour around the city. On one side is the palace with the garden, and on the other is the theater, concert hall, ZOO, city park... I stayed in a single room oriented toward yard. The room was very quiet and pretty large with large bed. Even the bathroom was large enough.... More

I stayed here for one night. The staff is very kind, they serve an excellent breakfast! I loved the ventilator in the room as it was very warm that day. The hotel is in a very beautiful building, near to the city center where you can do some excellent shopping :)

Stayed here while visiting Karlsruhe university. Location is good, short walk away from everything. Parking across the street in an Underground lot. Discount tickets available at the reception. Several nice restaurants nearby. Good breakfast, wifi.

Thank you very much for our stay at Hotel Blankenburg in the first week of March 2014. The staff was very professional. The owner family did everything to make our stay comfortable and tried to satisfy all our wishes. The hotel room was clean and the furnitures fitted our needs perfectly. The bathroom was up to date. The breakfast buffet... More

We stayed in this hotel in May 2012. The hotel is better than it first appears from the street. It is in an older building that fronts on a busy thoroughfare. The reception area is uninspiring and the lift is small,typical of an older building. The receptionist was delightful and offered information about the city and provided a map of... More

We hadn't booked in advance but managed to park outside the hotel (it's a very busy main road) and got a clean, quiet room at the back. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English. There was an extremely good buffet breakfast with a lot of choice for less than €5 each. Competitively priced: it's perfectly practical for an... More

Stayed here in December 2011 with a friend. Booked via Booking.com and got a good deal. Arrived at lunch time and room was ready. Room was at the front of the hotel and was a bit noisy because of the main road outside. We needed the windows open (even in December) as it was too hot in the room. Bathroom... More

A quiet, pleasant hotel, comfortable, recently modernised rooms, decent breakfast, friendly staff. The hotel has a sauna in the basement and you can rent bicycles, ideal for exploring this flat, compact city. Slightly off the beaten track but within five minutes walk of 'Etlinger Tor' Tram stop, linking you to the station and all the centres of activity in Karlsruhe.... More
