“Warm atmospheare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

We spent New Year's Eve in this precious hotel. The location is great just few steps from famous spa and in the core of the town. It is a great value for money hotel. It is clean and simple with a very nice warm atmospheare. Forget taxi, cars and bus because you can reach everything on foot. Would recommend it.

Small, nice hotel in the pedestrian area. Rooms were nice and well equipped with sitting area, bathroom and even a fridge. Very kind and helpful staff. Easy to reach buses to different parts of the surroundings.

Room Tip: Don't stay here if you can't go stairs or don't like to wake up while the town wakes up...

The hotel has an old-world charm with little things reminding of the times gone. It is prettily decorated and the different way the rooms are placed add to the "cute" factor. A very friendly staff and a good restaurant makes it a perfect place to stay while visiting the city. The hotel is located in a little "pedestrian-only" square making it more attractive if you are visiting the city for a vacation and want to relax.

The closeness to the square may make it a little noisy but we didn't mind it :)

Room Tip: Although the rooms that face the square may be a little noisy but they have a good view

Exactly what you want: great location, good breakfast and a good value. Nothing fancy but spotlessly cleaned and has everything you need. Stayed here twice and would not hesitate to stay again.

I was so impressed by the hotel during my stay here last year that I was happy to return. Must say, they have been consistent and I strongly recommend this hotel to travellers to Baden Baden.

Very nice hotel we really loved it. We booked 2 rooms, 1suite and 1 room for 2 people. The suite is just enormous, probably close to 55 m2 for a very reasonable price (we paid 200 euros). The double room we booked, while obviously smaller was very nice too and pretty large.

Everything in the room is pretty new and well decorated. In both room, we had a kitchen which is a feature quite rare in hotel and we really appreciated that as we had a small kid with us.

The view is just amazing on the main Baden Baden street but no noise at all in the room. Bed is quite comfortable and noise isolation is also perfect.

Wireless free of charge is present but does not work great unfortunaly due to a too weak signal but is is ok if you just want to check your email

In both rooms, you have a nice kitchen. The location is fantastic just a few hundred meters from the thermal bath and right in the center. Breakfast is ok, not fantastic but ok and is included in the room charge.

So overall, I strongly recommend to stay in this hotel.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

I booked my stay at the laterne hotel, mainly because of all the good reviews and for the "kitch" of the rooms. I wanted to have a nice and comfy stay in Baden-Baden.

Upon arrival with my boyfriend, we were greeted by an awful woman. Really awful. The prison keeper kind. She took my expedia reservation and said "oh it's fransösich" (yep nearly nothing said even in english). She seemed to DOUBT I had make a reservation. I was sure of having booked the correct one (Laterne) but I was sent to the Gasthaus Golden Lion just opposite the street because "it's part of the same company".

In fact they're working on the rooms in the Laterne hotel. So if you want to stay there, phone the hotel first to confirm that rooms are really available there, otherwise you'll be redirected to another hotel. I didn't, confident in the expedia.fr confirmation of booking.
