ACHAT Plaza Karlsruhe
Ranked #10 of 61 Hotels in Karlsruhe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 4, 2013

My family and I were touring Germany and reserved two rooms at the Renaissance using "Marriott points". We were very pleased with the level of concierge service we received in gathering information on the train schedule, their happy attempts at speaking English to make us feel comfortable, and the quality standard of the rooms. Very clean, very comfy. The hotel is located right across from shopping, so grabbing a pastry in the morning on the way to sight-seeing is easy, and it's a short walk to the zoo and to the train station. In particular we chose Karlsruhe because it was only an hour's drive to Strassborg, France - which we drove to for a fantastic dinner along the canal. Sometimes it's nice to go to the cities which aren't as heavily traveled - Karlsruhe was a great central location for us, and the Renaissance was a really nice hotel.

I have been there twice now and I know I'll be back. The rooms are great, the food is great. Right across the street, inside the mall, there's a really good Chinese restaurant too. Marriott has never disappointed me and this place is another great example of a perfect place to stay.

Room Tip: It's all good.

Although there is no lounge the hotel compensates a lot: free breakfast, free drinks at bar, free minibar, and discount at the restaurant. Actually, I'd prefer this benefit over the lounge.

The hotel is in the city center so be prepared to pay for parking if you drive to it. It is however reasonable for 17 Euros and below the hotel. I'd prefer free but it's Europe and parking in the city never is free.

Aside from the construction in front of the building the hotel provides a quiet atmosphere for sleep and rest. The beds are comfortable and the pillows (6) are extremely supportive. Thank you for having a pillow menu.

I stayed in a standard room which was fine for two for an overnight stay. The bathroom is standard tub/shower combination but offers nice bath products.

The hotel reception is extremely warm and helpful at offering suggestions for entertainment and activities.

The WiFi is free for Gold members and above and provided excellent speeds during all times of the day and night.

Breakfast is served till 11a on most days except Sunday. The selection was quite good and plentiful towards the end of breakfast.

Overall I'd definitely stay at this hotel again. This hotel definitely exceeded my expectations and lived up to Marriott standards.

Room Tip: Courtyard side as the street in front of the hotel is being repaired.

Decent place to stay. Grocery across the street. seemed a little sketchy area or at least down one of the streets. The servers and bar staff were great - highly recommend staying at the bar to eat instead of venturing out. The shower can be a little tricky - not typical in US. We ate downstairs here with out tour group and it was the worst meal we had out of 16 days (cold and not tasty) - BUT the food upstairs looked so much better

This Marriott is full of very helpful staff. The front desk helped in getting us oriented to Karlsruhe, places to eat, and attractions to visit. The bartender was pleasant and seemed to care that we were using the area.The rooms were clean and met our needs. Unfortunately the noise carries between rooms more than you would expect in a Renaissance Hotel. It would also be helpful if they would inform you in advance of major road work directly in front of the hotel that made finding the entrance to the parking facility an adventure.

This is a 5 star hotel which says it all... but the service was exquisite. At the reception we received exhaustive information accompanied by maps and internet downloads about what to see and where to go. Every advise was proved excellent, food, sightseeing, wine tours. We truly felt welcomed and pampered. The staff was generous to offer free drinks, and other extras... Breakfasts, included in the price, were superb - amazing variety.
Walk distance to everything. Supermarket across the street offers excellent food.
