“One of the best Novotels we've visited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

This Novotel is well-located in the middle of Karlsruhe and a perfect place to stay. Friendly staff, clean rooms and comfortable beds. As an Accor loyalty card member, I've stayed in lots of Novotels and this is one of the best.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

I / we stayed already several weeks in Novotel Karlsruhe. First time was an unexpected stay for some while due to Visa problems in Aug 2011. In the meantime Novotel is our favourite place during the homestays of the family and for me the centerpoint during biz trips to Germany.
Breakfast is extraordinary, the kindness at the reception is remarkable, the rooms are nice and in the surrounding you can find a lot of nice restaurants (but the hotel restaurant is also very nice) and the shopping mall "Ettlinger Tor". But after a long day you should not miss Ismael at the bar! He is a prototype of a barkeeper - remembers your favourites and cares for everybody!

Very helpfull reception with an excellent location to visit Karlsruhe as well. The room was spacey enough to feel comfortable, but unfortunately, the bed was a bit on the short side, which made the sleeping a lot less comfortable.

I have stayed twice in the Novotel Karlsruhe and both occasions I had no major complaints.
The hotel is fairly average, room size is reasonable. Service however is very good.
Breakfast (which is extra) is very good and even the hotel’s restaurant is one of the best one in the city.
The hotel and rooms are clean and quite.
Overall, it’s a decent and good hotel but by no measure exciting.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Novotel Karlsruhe is a very nice hotell, located near city centre. Good service, nice and helpful staff. Taxi from train station 7.70€. I recommend using the tram, just outside the hotel. Tram tickets may be bought in the reception. Big rooms, good cleaning. I would give the hotel highest rate, but there are some minus: - Expensive breakfast 19€ not included in room, - Wi-Fi is not free, - Noisy AC, had to turn it off during night and could not sleep with open window due to the traffic.
