“The hotel I would consider my favorite of all”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I stayed in this hotel for my birthday, during wintertime. Everything (room, lobby, dining room)was clean and taken good care of by the staff. Knowing it was my birthday, the staff took us to see several rooms and we go to chose the one I prefered.
The dining room is just perfect in a snowy afternoon, with the fireplace and free tea and really tasty cakes and cookies.
The room and whole hotel was absolutely gorgeous, with a genuine belle epoque decoration. It feels like a home!
We liked it so much that we extended our stay!!!

When in Rome..I mean Baden Baden...why not stay at an elegant hotel from the good ol' days of this high rollin spa town. The entrance is grand with a large staircase and staff opening the door remotely for you before you even see them. Upon our arrival, we were upgraded to a junior suite. The room at baroque style furnishings and period pieces. The bathroom was large with high end fixtures. The only complaint on the comfort of this hotel was the firmness of the bed. It was quite hard in our opinion which could lead to poor sleep quality. Otherwise this is counter balanced by the entire positive experience at the hotel. The communal area lounge has a fireplace and couches for relaxing. It was nice to come home from dinner and enjoy a glass of port by the fire. They also offer a high tea service in the afternoon as included in the price. Overall, it was a nice stay at this hotel...would just recommend improvement in the mattresses.

This property is beautiful. Each guest room is named after the style in which it is decorated. We were in the Brahms room which included a small lounge area with desk, comfortable bed, small bathroom with shower and a separate spa bath in the corner of the room apart from the bathroom. The spa bath was a very nice luxury after walking around Baden-Baden for the day.

The breakfast includes cereal/museli, yoghurt, meats and cheeses, muffins/pastries, tea/coffe, juice and is included in the room rate. Free wifi is also available throughout the hotel, though it is somewhat limited in the range in the guest room we had as were were on the second floor at the end of the hallway.

This property certainly takes you back in time and allows you to experience how Baden Baden would have been during the height of its popularity with European royalty. It is a very short walk from all the tourist attractions, thermal baths and restaurants.

A lovely hotel. Feels like you are staying in a family home. The decor and attention to detail is superb. The lounge is cosy and classy at the same time. Breakfast and afternoon teas are very nice, all the best china and good choice. Service here is very good. We had a meeting here and the service was great as well as a large room with plenty of light. This hotel is great for bussiness or for a romantic break. Superb!

Room Tip: The old house has nicest room. Second floor is ok but plenty of stairs.

We arrived at the Hotel Belle Epoque last week. I started off having very high expectations of the Hotel until we sat down at reception too check in. Our room was not ready too start off with so we had too hang around for that. We had too ask someone too bring our bags in not something we are used too having stayed in all five star hotels. Let me point this out too you this is not a five star hotel,The Mandarin Orientals are Five star hotels this hotel is clearly not. It does not even have its own restarant how unbelivable is that!!!! The room was old fashioned and the ensuite bathroom was a hideous burgundy colour that had a curtain as the door!!!! When I spoke too a very rude man about cancelling our two night stay and just staying for one night I was barked at saying that would not be possible and that we had too pay for two nights. You also get two single duvets on a double bed instead off a proper double duvet.Breakfast was very dull not what we are used too. After one night we left the following day. I had too ask one off the staff too bring our bags too the car as they were all too busy lolling around talking. Horrendous place if you like good food and nice people and good service do not stay here.You have been warned!!!!

Thank you for writing your experience in our hotel. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to bring these matters to our attention.
We are sorry you had to wait for the room but our check in time is 3pm, what is always told at reservation or in the confirmation. Of course our staff is supposed to bring in the suitcases if you wish for it right away. He was probably not sure about that since the room hasn’t been ready yet. We apologize herefore.
The points about our décor and restaurant in our sister hotel are actually very clear prior to arrival (or reservation). We are not a modern standard hotel. The hotel is known and loved for its antique interior. To hear that our staff has been rude is very shocking. Normally, as you can see in our other reviews, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We apologize for that also.
We are astonished that our breakfast buffet with poultryliver parfait, salmon, freshly squeezed juice and the other rather regular luscious items as black forest ham, at least five different sorts of cheese…and so on.. was too dull for you. We also serve every kind of eggs you can imagine on request!
The cancellation policy is 72hours prior to arrival, which is also written in every confirmation or told on the phone at reservation. Unfortunately you were not within the policy when cancelling at arrival. We are a small hotel and do not overbook. We hold the room for our guests until the last minute.
It’s our goal to consistently provide superior service and accommodations and your comments are very important to us. We hope you will give us a second chance to convince you of our quality.

Staying at the Belle Epoche is like staying as a house guest in a friend's chateau. It's a very pretty building in a good location with lovely antiques, roaring fires, books, paintings, fresh flowers and great attention to detail such excellent quality crockery (Villeroy & Boch), cutlery, soft furnishings and bed linen. The reception rooms and bedrooms are very well appointed and very attractive indeed and everything is spotlessly clean. The staff are polite, helpful, well presented and wonderfully discreet and the ambiance is elegant and tranquil. Delightfully fresh and plentiful breakfasts and the scrumptious complimentary afternoon tea completed the sense of thorough well-being. There's also a large and pretty garden, parking and very good security. Both my husband and I felt extremely comfortable at Belle Epoche and I would not need much persuasion to move myself in for good! I particularly relished the fact that there were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room, no trouser presses, no ironing boards, absolutely nothing 'hotely' and naff (although there was an excellent hair dryer and super bathroom products!), allowing us to enjoy proper butler service instead. This gorgeous and romantic little boutique hotel ticks all my boxes!

Room Tip: Choosing a room is impossible as they are all beautiful!

There are only good emotions and memories from our stay with Belle Epoque. Bourjois! Junior suite was fancy, the pate in the breakfast menu I miss until now. Ans surely the service. So appropriate and efficient. Bravo!

Room Tip: Ask for the room in the main building.
