“Chain hotel - nothing special”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Formulaic hotel, not inconveniently located for town centre. Everything clean and buffet breakfast was OK but not as good as other German hotels I've stayed in. Bed was very comfortable.

The garage is much too small for the hotel, meaning that late arrivals have to park up the road in the Festspielhalle carpark.

Bar is combined with reception desk so that late in the evening the sole receptionist can't properly service both areas. Also check-in procedures are must too complicated. When I arrive at a hotel I want to get to my room asap and this is possible at most hotels - not this one.

Finally, I'd forgotten my plug adaptor but the hotel was unable to lend me one. Strange in a hotel that values "real service".

We selected the Holiday Inn Express for our four night stay as many other choices were already booked because of a conference in the city. Check-in was easy, and our room was better than expected. While the location of the hotel was a 10 minute walk from the city center, the hotel was near the river and the room was very clean. The daily and hearty breakfast and access to the internet (via a communal computer in the lobby) made us feel we made a good choice. Staff was friendly, so we would recommend it to others.

Booked this hotel as it was a reasonable price and had on site parking but it really was very good.
The reception staff were very welcoming and efficient . The rooms were bright very comfortable and always a real bonus very quiet.

Travelled back to Baden Baden for some walking and fresh air. The hotel is located towards the end of town but only a 10-15 min walk into the centre. Check in was efficient, although Baden charges a tourist tax the hotel offers a visitor pass which, if you use the museums and spas basically means you get your tax back. Rooms are on par with most Holiday Inn Expresses, clean and fresh, nice shower, kettle for hot water and a selection of tea bags and coffee. Breakfast is a buffet affair, plenty of room to sit, never crowded, selection of breads, pastries and cheese, quite a limited selection compared to the Expresses in France where scrambled eggs, sausage and a vast selection of cheeses seem to be the norm, however, excellent coffee machine which made an energising expresso. As a platinum member got free wifi and drink at the bar, shame only one drink as we had checked in as a couple! There is an ice machine in lobby which is excellent for keeping your wine cool. Found it an excellent base for walking to the Merkur mountain funicular or Altes Scholss as well as the many other walking paths around Baden. Secure parking available which is a steep 12€ a night but saves having to find on-street parking, but be warned, it does get full very quickly. Highly recommend the hotel as a base for Baden and the surrounding Black Forest. If you want to do a bit of self catering the selection of food and wine on the top floor of the Wagener Galerie in the markthalle takes some beating.

Arrived here after a 9 hour drive. We had no reservation, the girl at reception could not be more helpful. Checked us in very quickly. She recommended a great Thai Restaurant to us.

The rooms were spotless and very modern. The bed was very comfortable.

Breakfast was very good, the dining area was very busy and could maybe do with 1 or 2 more staff clearing tables.

There was a secure underground car-park, a bit expensive at €12 per night, but worth it for piece of mind.

I couldn't fault this Holiday Inn and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This Holiday Inn Express is nothing special. It gives the usual level of service but the location is on a main road and the view from the room was not great. There is no free parking, and you have to pay a "Kurtax" for staying in Baden Baden. That gives you discounts to the Spa's in the city, but is of no use to a business traveller that is just spending a night here. The beds are comfortable, the WiFi is free and as such, the hotel served it's purpose.

I got to admire the cleanliness and modern style of the hotel at the first place in addition to the nice and typical German breakfast which is included with room rate.Downside is the location which is not at the heart of the town about 15 mins walking and WiFi service is also not included with the rate . Generally I would recommend the hotel if you are hire or have a car there .
