We stayed one evening in July. We had a lovely stay. Our room was extremely spacious, comfortable and clean. The hotel doesn't have air conditioning, but they have windows which open completely and allow for a comfortable night. The location was perfect, just a short walk to the old town.The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast n the morning was wonderful. I would definitely stay here again.

We arrived to early for check in but our room was ready and they would have looked after our luggage if it wasn't. The hotel is in a side street very near the centre so all locations are easy to reach on foot with some excellent resturants nearby. Our room was a bit small but this wasn't an issue as all we needed was a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom, which we had, if you want larger there are superior's and suites which you can pay extra for. The room was cleaned each day so no complaints at all. The reception staff were very professional and extremely helpful for our whole stay. Breakfast was the normal buffet of meats, cheeses, smoked salmon, eggs,breads, yoghurts and fruit and you could have a small cooked breakfast as part of the package, which was cooked to order which was a added bonus and once again the staff were extremely helpful. The location is excellent for the casino,the open air music with the festival, the Lichtental and the buses for the races and the Merkur mountain railway and the calatherm spa is a short walk away. We have stayed in many hotels in Baden Baden and this was definitely the best value as they can be very expensive when the festival is on. The only down side were the bin men emptying the bins early in the morning but this is not the hotels fault and if it had been cooler which it normally is at this time of the year we would not have had the windows wide open (our room was at the front). We would definitely return to this hotel again but would stay longer next time.

Room Tip: Try not to have a room at the front

The room was a bit small but overall the experience was good. It is very well located at the heart of the city. Service is very nice and the staff was always very helpful even beyond their usual duty. The rooms are very clean and nice. It was very hot when we visited and the lack of air conditioning was an issue for us but most times of the year it should be fine.

We stayed 2 nights at Hotel Merkur when in Baden-Baden on our family holiday through Germany. Baden-Baden is a lovely place for a holiday and Hotel Merkur just great to be in.

Driving in from Heidelberg, our GPS got us into Baden-Baden but then got lost finding Hotel Merkur. A few circles around the area finally got us down a slope to the hotel. The hotel is modern, clean and efficient.

The front office was very helpful directing us to the parking area and offering to help with the luggage. After a smooth check-in we were through to our modern looking, but rather small room (Germany seems to have smaller rooms compared to the ones I am used to in Asia and US). However, I must mention that the room was adequate for our needs and comfortable enough. They also gave us larger rooms for the families with children than the ones which were given to the couple only room in our party. Also booking with them direct gave us a 50% discount on the parking charges saving us 9 euros over the two nights.

The hotel is very well located in city center and a short walk brings you to the shops, restaurants and the spas/baths. Do spoil yourself by the leisure options provided by Baden-Baden, be it an evening at the Friedrichsbad, a stroll down the pedestrian street, a city tour on the road-railway or a walk through the park.

The breakfast buffet was included in our room rate and it was standard fare. Limited options for vegetarians but good enough to get you through the morning. Though it might be good for people who eat non-vegetarian food.

Overall a good stay in a beautiful city.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. It was a very pleasant stay. The staff members are very friendly and helpful. The hotel has there own parking and you should book your room directly on the hotel website for a parking discount. We were very happy that we stayed here at the end of Germany trip.

We stayed at the Hotel Merkur for only one night on our drive back home from Italy to the Netherlands. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and were extremely happy with the service. It is in a perfect location in the center of Baden-Baden and, should you book through the hotel website, you have an option of getting half price parking (only €4.50 per day), which we thought was a great deal. We found the room spacious and although a bit on the "business hotel" side concerning ambience in the room, it more than served its purpose. The breakfast was also qiuite nice in the morning although there were no hot food options (we don't mind but some people like a hot breakfast). All in all a very good experience and worth a return visit to spend more time exploring the beautiful surroundings.
