We stopped here on the first night of our family road trip as it was a doable journey from the UK via the Eurotunnel and conveniently situated for the A5 and the A8 as we were visiting Munich at midday and travelling on to the Austrian Tirol. it is essentially a modern business hotel but a nice environment.

Easy to find, plenty parking, air conditioned room, bottled water in room and two bottles given for onward journey. Comfortable bed, good breakfast in pleasant surroundings. Pleasant staff, good value.

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.

I love this hotel it's refreshing and modern.We had a corner room looking out to the forest. Loved the way the doors opened and blinds! Nice to have fresh air. Breakfasts are substantial - german breakfasts are the best! Friendly staff would stay again. Only downside was the corner of the bed I kept catching my shin...placing the bin in... More

Ettling was a nice surprise, we didn't travel in this town but near the hotel we had a forest, so we can jog in the morning, if you open a window you can hear the river. We traveled with 2 kids (19 &6) in the black forest for a week. We took 2 rooms that was next to each other.... More

This hotel is fine, but not the place if you're looking for evidence of what country you're in. It's what I think of as "soulless modern" -- almost every wall white, generally sterile ambience, largely indistinguishable. Nothing terrible, but nothing memorable. The smallest TV I've seen in a hotel in this category or price range for quite a while. Also,... More

The hotel watthalden is positioned well with a flowing stream over the road and forested hills nearby, and walking distance to Ettlingen. The staff were also friendly and helpful, and the rooms bright and well presented. The negatives though made a weighty list. Breakfast was not good, perhaps the worst bacon and sausages we tasted in Germany, and the scrambled... More
