The staff was very friendly and helpful at all hours. The rooms were cleaner than other hotels I have stayed at for the same price point in Germany. Breakfast was delicious. I personally liked being located further from downtown Karlsruhe as the downtown was full of construction, congested, and had much traffic. However, I had a rental car.

Breakfast buffet was a bit pricey and the same all days. Not a hotel for those without a car for transport. More USB plugs or international AC outlets would be welcome.

Infrastruktur für Autofahrer ist gut. Restaurant ist auch ok.

Der Pool-Bereich macht morgens erst spät auf (nach 7 Uhr) und ist auch abgeschlossen. Schade und unnötig. Schwimmen vor dem Frühstück schwer möglich. Das Personal bloß nicht nach einem Kaffee beim Frühstück fragen. Lieber direkt selbst ziehen.

Room is decent and clean.

The location is far from main city center which is not ideal as it is not convenient and can only commute by taxi.

September 2014

Overall satisfactory experience. Would like to mention the name of Ms. Hannah Epp who really impressed me with her Pro customer approach, which is a necessary element of service industry and the people like her are asset in hotel industry, who makes the difference. Thanks to the Chef , who made me feel special by making a vegetable dish for me. All staff (except one) in restaurant were great.

Mini bar should be included in the price House keeping needs improvement in response time No attendant in wellness area Most of the Staff at reception is monotonous and robotic with missing warmness and hospitality approach

Very spacious rooms.

The hotel and rooms need some renovations. The furniture in the rooms, specifically the mattress, have seen better days.

March 2011

Friendly staff who were attentive and willing to offer assistance, plus excellent restaurant in the hotel.

One elevator was non-operational for many days - very inconvenient when hotel was busy. Onsite parking too expensive for a hotel not situated in a populated area.
