Refreshingly friendly and optimal located hotel in the centre of Baden-Baden.

Our room was spacious, modern, clean and lovely decorated as the whole hotel.
A rich breakfast buffet and a delicious restaurant made us also feel well.
Free of charge wifi, Sky-TV and the parking garage are also plus points.

Room Tip: Our Junior Suite was very spacious and mordern

Very good Hotel with a friendly and helpful staff. Perfect located in the centre of Baden-Baden, with parking spaces

Spacious, modern and clean rooms, nice decorated as well as a the whole Hotel.

A rich breakfast buffet and a delicious Restaurant.

We missed nothing and will come back to the Hotel Merkur at our next Germany trip for sure.

The Hotel Merkur is very well placed for easy access to the town centre. The receptionists were friendly and helpful and the rooms warm and clean with all necessary facilities. The key system to enter our room was challenging at times but help was always available!
Breakfast was excellent with a huge range of hot or cold foods served as a buffet but with waitresses serving drinks and taking special orders. The evening meal was also very good with good service and the dining room was attractively decorated.

This is the third time that we have stayed in this hotel and just love it. The location is central and in walking distance to the center of the city and the Kurhaus (Casino). I would recommend the superior room which costs a little bit more but offers excellent value in terms of space and other facilities. Breakfast is excellent with a wide variety of breads, cheeses and other essentials. Eggs are also freshly made to order.

I've needed to be in Baden-Baden frequently during the past 1-2 years, sometimes on my own and sometimes with my spouse. (We purchased a small apartment there that is undergoing renovation and needs to be checked on regularly.) I have two favorite places to stay in the town center: Merkur and Hotel am Markt. If one is not available, I look for the other. Merkur is handier in terms of proximity (walking distance) to our apartment, but I love them both.
Merkur is well-located, near the pedestrian zones, on a quiet cul-de-sac (no thru traffic). The beds are very comfortable, the bathrooms generous and modern. WiFi in the rooms always works very well. Breakfast downstairs is a dream. The hotel's own restaurant is also very good, by the way, for lunch or dinner. Lastly: One of the most wonderful aspects of Merkur is the competence and amazing warmth of the staff.

Room Tip: The annex doesn't have an elevator. If an elevator is important to you, make that clear to them...

Stayed two nights and enjoyed it thoroughly - on arrival guided quickly to hotel parking on site making it very easy. Lovely large room in second building , but initially given smoking room in error in main building and room very small and claustrophobic. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were very good with option to order several hot items as well. Ate in restaurant one night and food was nicely presented and for the most tasty - pork was quite tough for all diners. Overall, definitely good value for price.

Room Tip: We had corner suite in second building and significantly larger than friends suite in center. Don...
