“This hotel is a scam”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2008

We left this hotel a credit card number to hold the reservation. My fiance and I had trouble with our flights leaving Algeria, so we called and cancelled our reservation. Apparently they decided to go ahead and charge us $2000. I have called several times to rectify the problem and the managers are not speaking to me and even hung up on me.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2006

We were looking for a nice, relaxing getaway for a long weekend and booked this hotel. It is up on a hill and only a 10 minute walk to the city center. The walk was nice since the weather was so nice. However, the hotel is very dreary, dark and depressing. It also has a stinky odor. The day I check out the odor seemed to have gotten worse. The bathroom was really small and the interior of the hotel is very dated. The staff was nice, but reminded you to take your key if you went out and planned on returning late since they locked the doors. No complaint about the staff, just the hotel. For the money I paid, I am not willing to stay at this hotel again.

Our hotel was completely renovated in 2005 and 2006. All subject rooms as well as the public rooms are formed in the Mediterranean style. Warm colours from yellow about were used orange up to various red tones of the different materials. Of course smells are not avoidable partly by new equipment, but maybe the aromas for good sensations of our wellness department were also to be heard at the hotel which cause certainly no negative sensations.

An oldish hotel, situated in a wooded area a little way out of town, hence a peaceful and quite location. Bathrooms are small with a shower over a bath tub. Breakfast is a typical continental breakfast, being adequate, but with not much variety of choice.

My wife and I live here in Germany and this is one of our favorite cities. Kappelmann's is the only hotel we have returned to in our many visits. The staff is very friendly and the meals are one of the things I look forward to when we set up a weekend stay. The thermals are less than a 10 min walk as well as the walkplatz. Anyone making a trip to Baden-Baden should definitely consider staying here.
