The hotel itself is fairly modern and functional and has everything one needs on business travels. Staff were friendly throughout - Breakfast buffet was nearly empty when I arrived at 9:30 on the first day and typical German breakfast fare on the second day.

I was on a business trip for a week, and my office booked me into this one! Was a bit sceptical initially, because of the location of the hotel (seemed a bit off the city centre), but eventually there is historic Ettlingen, you can enjoy with a 10 minute walk (shopping, restaurants...). Nevertheless, the black forest view around is worth... More

Stayed here en route to Austria. It was our 4th visit as we find this hotel a convenient stopping point en route to the Alps when we want to avoid driving through France. There is an underground car park, the rooms are clean and comfortable and breakfast plentiful. All you need for a pleasant stopover after a long days drive.... More

Stayed here when Hotel Erbrpinz was full. Modern hotel, spacious reception/lobby/breakfast area. Average sized rooms neatly furnished. Very clean, good air con, and ground floor doors open if more air required on a warm evening. reasonably priced beer at small bar but next to excellent Watts bar and Brasserie. Excellent breakfast choice. Very competitively priced, overall, great value for money.

We stayed here last night for only one night as a stop over on our way to Austria (and then on to Italy). We telephoned ahead to say we would be late and were told this wasn't a problem as reception is 24hrs. Very impressed with the hotel. The entrance is immaculate and the room was great. We were in...

Hotel booked for 1 night during a business trip. Very large and clean room. The hotel is offering you a free bottle of water, quite nice gift. The location is very nice because at 100 meters, there is a nice spa. The breakfast is very good. Do not forget the fitness center at the 4th floor

Very friendly staff. Modern rooms. However beds are very low. We booked 1 two bedroom, 1 single bedroom and 1 three bedroom. In the last bedroom one of my 3 sons had to sleep in a rollaway bed. He is 2 meters tall and 95 kilo's! Not very comfortable. Breakfast is good but staff is slow in restocking the buffet.... More

This hotel is a good solution near Karlsruhe and the upper end of Schwarzwald. Nice clean rooms and a very good and complete breakfast. I would suggest it to anybody looking for a medium price accomodation in Karlsruhe.
