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

Very nice modern hotel with very friendly staff, nice bedroom and good breakfast. We eat our evening meal in the court year in the restaurant and it was all very nice and cozy. We were given a bottle of water each on departure - a nice little touch.

The hotel is conveniently located an 8km off the A8 highway. The hotel advertises as a 3 star hotel, but, to our opinion, it's more a 4 star hotel. We had a family (4 person room), and were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room. It even included a microwave oven, some free drinks, and some chocolates for everyone.... More

My family stayed here for 5 days while in the region for a wedding. The hotel was modern, clean, comfortable, and overall made our stay enjoyable. The daily buffet breakfast was a treat, with everything from yogurt, to cereal, eggs, bacon, and pancakes. The room was modern, clean, and large by European standards. The village was an easy walk and... More
