Ibis Budget Karlsruhe is a very good budget hotel: simple and clean rooms, free parking, a good breakfast buffet, friendly staff. It's a good choice for one or two nights, e.g. if you need to stay close to the freeway for a stopover or close to a company you need to visit nearby. Wifi is for free, though not of...

I have stayed in many Etap/Ibis Budget Hotels before. The one in Karlsruhe is ok, but below other Ibis Budget standards. The receptionist was not very helpful - telling us we can't check in, because we already have and the room pin was emailed to us (which was not the case for some reason). Only after asking 2 more times,...

WiFi was the weakest link in the offer, often not available. Small plastic chair in the room, no place for clothes beside few hangers. Everything very clean, new furniture, professional staff, for recommendation.

I had travelled by motorcycle from Vienna so a shower, the weather had been very hot all the way, was first on the list. I had booked my room in advance and check in was quick and a formality, usual high IBIS standard for budget hotel, located in slightly dodgy area, but nobody can get in after hours without a...

It's a very typical Ibis Budget - no frills but tidy, clean, good value (apart from the breakfasts - they're not bad but for a few euros more the breakfasts in the Ibis Styles are much better, but then the rooms cost more) - for an overnight stop you can't really go wrong. It's well located with the 'American Diner'...

Late night check in driving past countless prostitutes touting for business was very unnerving but the hotel was well lit and once in the room it was immaculately clean, well designed and perfect for an inexpensive place to stay en route.

We had a late checkin so it was night by the time we checked in the hotel. The first impression was, 'is this hotel worth staying for decent people?' The surrounding area was a hub to pick up girls. But since there were hardly any places that would do a late checkin, we were obliged to take it. The rooms...

IBIS budget hotel Karlsruhe is exactly what it supposed to be. A stop and go hotel to continue your journey after a good sleep. The hotel offers a clean practical room with bathroom to spend the night and an optional breakfast the next day. Cheap easy to find close to the highway in an quiet neighborhood partly industry. No restaurant...

After we'd planned to stay here on a quick stopover. We decided to give it a miss. Reasons for this, It's in the middle of the red light district, driving the last mile to the hotel we passed around 20 ladies of the night, It's also 4 doors down from a rather rough looking casino/bar. I wasn't sure our car...
