“Average Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2006

We stayed here in early July by suggestion from
Rick Steve's .. it's a nice quaint hotel but about 15 minute
bus ride away from center of baden-baden. The room
size was large for a hotel in this class
(this is a B&B type hotel or motel like in the US/Canada). We left early in the morning
and only stayed one night so unsure of how their breakfast was.

Of warning, to non-european travellers, many of the hotels
do not have air con, fortunately we were ok given that
the weather was cool at the time, but in the hot season
in germany it may be unbearable.

Inexpensive hotel (62 Euro), 15 minutes away from the center. The room was big, but everything (furniture, carpet) was rather worn out. The owner (Frau Peter) is unfriendly and scolding. Bad experience, not worth the money.

Our expectations for this hotel were fairly low since we actually messed up on our reservation. We thought our reservation was for the Deutscher Kaiser on Merkurstrasse which is located centrally where all the main attractions are. However, to our surprise this inn was not as far from the town center and main train station as we thought. A quick bus ride took about 10min. The stops are located conveniently across the street from the inn and came every 15-20min. The hotel itself was as basic as it can get. No frills, not even a T.V in the room. The room and bathroom was fairly tiny. The sink area for the bathroom was external from the toilet and MINI shower. We pretty much just used the inn to sleep since the location was in a quiet residential area, however it was considered on one of the main street. There was a restaurant downstairs which was part of the hotel, but it closed by 9 pm even on the weekends. There’s a solarium across the street but that’s pretty much it. The closes civilization (a mini market and cinema) was two bus stops away. Although this inn was far from luxurious, and barely comfortable, the hotel owner was very friendly. Upon arrival she had brochures of all the sites in Baden-Baden. She was very helpful in suggesting getting a day bus pass (good for 5 people) for 6 EUR even though we had only 2 persons since a single day passes would have cost 4EUR each. She also had discount tickets for the two largest spas in Baden-Baden. It appeared this hotel also organized sight-seeing tours to nearby towns in the Black Forest, but unfortunately we only stayed the weekend so didn’t have a chance to check it out. So, even though we thought we made a big mistake in booking the wrong Deutscher Kaiser, it turned out enjoyable.

Just spent 2 nights at this nice hotel in Baden Baden. The owners (husband, wife, mother) speak great English, and were very responsive on email prior to our arrival. The map they provide on their website is quite detailed and helpful when driving into town. We found the hotel with ease.

The decor is a bit dated and some things in the room were dusty, but for the price paid, it was fine with us. We didn't spend too much time in the room. The beds were very comfortable, and the breakfast had a nice selection.

The owners were very helfpul with all of our needs. We would definitely stay here again.
