“Another fab german hotel.”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

Stayed here for two nights last year. The hotel is of a good standard, and staff very friendly and helpful (even when dealing with dripping wet motorbikers). Continental breakfast only, but loads of it.
Hotel is just outside the centre of the city so is quiet at night, but is close enough to get a cheap taxi into the centre.
Overall a very pleasant stay in a good hotel.

° Breakfast is the worst ever, all processed food.
° Wireless is not working properly or at all.
° The Hotel is at the end of the world, rather pay 5 Euros more and stay in the middle of Karlsruhe.
° Toilet and shower are essentially in the room, try having some privacy.
° I asked for a bathtub, not possible.
° They rent bikes for free. But it's cheap bikes, they almost broke down.
° Feels more like a B&B or transient hotel instead of a real hotel.
° There is nothing close to visit, the countryside is really awful.
° Ugly pictures in the hallway.

This hotel is excellent value for a stopover hotel. You can park easily next to the hotel. The rooms are very good isolated. We were next to the elevator but did not hear a thing. There is free wifi. The staff is very helpful and efficient (arrival and check out in 2 minutes). We also liked the wide choice in breakfast. I could not think of anything missing.
Just one thing. We booked a quadruple. In this case you will have two doubles. One real and another more like a divan-bed. I really slept well so no complaints about the divan. Still a pity as the room is big enough to fit in a real double.

Booked this hotel via the internet as it was about half way to our Austrian resort. The hotel is a bit off the main route, but not too far. The bedrooms are pleasantly decorated and spacious, very clean and there is free wifi for 24 hours. We found a chinese restaurant a few minutes' drive away. The best thing by far was the absolutely amazing breakfast - absolutely anything and everything your heart could desire - cold meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, yoghurts, pastries, breads, scrambled egg, bacon, sausage, boiled egg, cereals, teas (herbal, green, regular), coffee, hot chocolate, fruit juices. Wow! This was the best breakfast I have had anywhere and at this price it is a gem! Also meant we could drive through to resort without stopping to eat! Well done Hotel Aviva, if we go to this resort again, we'll be back!

Hotel in a good distance to the city center (Tram 3 about 10 Min. to go). Hotel with different size of rooms, some for singles are a little bit small. Breakfast is o.k. and people are very helpful in the hotel. For the price a good choice. Nice surrunding (forest) an nice restaurant near by (fünf).

Room Tip: try to get a double room if you are travelling allone

Was really surprised at how good this hotel was, easy to find, lots of nice detail like even down to nail files in bathroom and sweets and drinks in bedroom. Was expecting it to be nice but clinical and basic ,was very pleased, although no air conditioning there was a fan, quad room VERY spacious, comfortable beds, best breakfast ever had virtually every combination you could want, free accesss to emails. If I come to this part of germany again I would definately stay here a gain. Just wish the hotel chain in Calais I had stayed at had been as nice

I do have made several visits to Europe during 2009. There is no doubt that this was one of the best mid range hotel I stayed during my visit. Staffs were friendly (even though most of them didn’t understood a single word I spoke) and helpful. They do have a very good sauna bath in the top floor. The rooms were clean, room service was very good and internet connectivity was consistent.
Breakfast was well served and there is a MC Donald’s, and several Italian restaurants near to the place
