4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spent one very comfortable night here on my way from the Hook of Holland to Switzerland. Ettlingen is a charming little town, nice for an evening stroll, and the hotel is very well located, with easy driving access and good parking. The staff are friendly, the bed very comfortable, the room spacious, clean and well appointed. No mini bar fridge.... More

I have spent only one night in this hotel during a recent business trip. My stay has certainly not tested the facility in detail but, after having been in so many hotels, I have a good feeling of what they can offer. And this hotel is very nice. The little city of Ettlingen is located near the edge of the... More

We visited the Watthalden for a wedding which took place in an old mill right opposite to the hotel. It was perfectly clean and although our room faced the street in front of the hotel we slept very well. The staff was extremly friendly for German hotels and the breakfast was really comparable to a 5 star standard. We stayed... More

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...
