“Just like a fairy tale!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

I went with my mother and stay at this property for one night. The service was extremely kind and proactively helped us with everything we needed, and even more, without us even asking for it. For example, when we went to have dinner at the restaurant and the they heard us talking spanish, they called a spanish speaking colleague from their sister hotel, Belle Epoque, who came talk to us and made sure we were satisfied with the service and the hotel.
The restauurant is also a good place to dine! The menu has a good variatety of dishes and the portions have the perfect size. The breakfast buffet has a bit of everything and it is served in a small but very fine way.
The hotel all in all has a great atmosphere: Le Petit Prince illustrations of Saint-Exupéry hang on the walls, the decoration is very traditional with lots of details but in the right amount, and it has a beautiful terrace where you can have coffee and cake during the afternoons. It felt just like a fairy tale!

We picked up a car in Germany 5 years ago and also stayed here to celebrate. Once again, we picked up a car, and treated ourselves to Der Kleine Prinz! We stayed in the Turmchenzimmer 51. The fact that we had to walk the final flight made it more distinct..from this loft you can see about 5 different views of the surrounding homes in the hills as well as the Cathedral from the various windows (even from the bathroom!). We were able to park 1 block away in the parking lot of their sister hotel, The Belle Epoque (that expression now made famous by Maria Cotillard in recent Woody Allen film, Midnight In Paris). Der Kleine Prinz is about a 15 minute walk from Friedrichsbad thermal spa, AND, one of our favorite German restaurants, the Lowenbrau Baden-Baden......but you can make a case for just hanging out in your room, or the library or courtyard of this stunning hotel....

We have just returned from yet another wonderful stay at The Little Prince in Baden Baden. As always rooms were quaint but lovely, staff were attentive and very helpful and breakfast was fab. Fruit baskets in the room were a lovely touch after a hard days shopping! A really special place in a very lovely setting. Cannot wait to return. Would recommend Rizzi for dinner to visitors also- always have a great time here.

This hotel was a gem of a find for us! Easy walking distance from city highlights and famous Lichtentahler Allee park walk. Service was prompt and gracious. Breakfast was delicious buffet with hot items also made to order. A special treat was the afternoon tea/coffee and cake included in the room rate. It was a nice way to relax from touring and re-group before the evening activities. There is a nice courtyard with outdoor seating which we enjoyed each night of our stay. We enjoyed the local church bells each morning as well as the location being just far enough away from the hustle and bustle for a good night's rest. We enjoyed the "Little Prince" theme throughout the hotel. It was a playful compliment to the elegant furnishings. The breakfast room was especially cheerful. Wi-fi didn't work so well, but they do have a library computer that is connected if you really must. We will stay here again!

I always laugh at people who post comments about hotels in Europe being old, small or near a church with bells. It's difficult in Europe to have a property that isn't at least two of those things. This hotel was all three, but I thought it was very charming. I thought my room was plenty big. It had a king bed, a wardrobe, a nice bathroom with shower and a seating area with a table.

The staff was extremely nice and happily spoke English to my very broken German. It's a cab ride from the train station (sorry, can't remember how much), but it's just a 5 minute walk to downtown and then another 5 minutes to both spas. I thought the location was perfect.

I prepaid for the gourmet dinner at the restaurant for both nights because I knew I would be recovering from jet lag and wouldn't want to go out. The meal was a little pricey, but not for what it really was - gourmet food. It was absolutely fabulous. And the staff made me feel so comfortable even sitting by myself at the table.

Baden-Baden is a charming little place and the spas are fabulous. I would start my Europe trip with a stay there and at this hotel any time.

Since this hotel was rated very highly in the travel guide books, we expected a fairly upscale, attractive place. What we found was a rather gloomy, old establishment in need of refurbishment. If you enjoy antiques, and the feel of a century past, you make find this place attractive, but we did not. To their credit, the staff changed our booking to their sister property, the Belle Epoque, which we found quite satisfactory.
