Friendly welcoming staff at reception. Easy to find from railway station, Close to City Centre Price for breakfast rather too high.
Clean if a little faded around the edges. Probably in need of a little updating but for the price then no complaints.
The staff has always been helpful and friendly. Public areas could be modernized. Free parking on roof must be accessed via supermarket next door.
Staff were nice. Good, yet expensive, Italian restaurant. Parking fee and the separate charge for breakfast, which was not a good value.
I had never stayed in this hotel before but it was a good stop off point between the channel and southern germany. I thought £40ish for a 4* hotel was pretty cheap. From the outside I was disapointed, its on a busy street joined to a supermarket. However, the hotel is a bit of a hidden gem. Large reception area in marble with an art deco theme, cocktail lounge and basement italian resteraunt. There is free parking on the roof, classed as insecure and secure parking for a fee in the underground garrage. There is always space on the roof and access is more or less restricted so I parked there. The room was large and spotless with good a/c, flat screen, mini-bar(useful fridge)and,not common in Germany, tea and coffee tray in the wardrobe. Staff could not have been more helpfull. Use of well equiped and underused gym club next door for free. 4* hotel at a budget price with a lot of extras thrown in. Liked it so much I stayed there on the way back as well! 10 minute walk to main shopping area. If you park on the roof at about 3rd floor level, there is no lift just walk down the stairs or the ramp.
Very tasteful deco and really soothing energy in the room. One of the best mattresses! Narrow space for toilet and shower.
It was comfortable and convenient for our business location. The restaurant menu was somewhat limited
central hotel close to facilities in the town
Excellent receptionist: helpful and proactive
they always care for your stay very comfort any let you feel that you are not allon and at home thank you very much
Good location, close to both the city centre and the train station. The main hall (where breakfast is served) and the rooms are in two separated buildings. This is not very convenient.
The stay is very comfortable. Not noisy. Room service done everyday. Breakfast is very good. The WiFi was troublesome and was not working most of the time. Even after complaint to the Hotel Staff it was not taken care of. Besides the washbasin kept getting clogged and despite complaint no action was taken.
everything: services, breakfast,cleanliness ,.... No
60 Euros for double room (two peoples) including a nice breakfast, free internet in the room, beds comfortable and very clean, I will say yes.
Room was modern, clean, and quiet. Staff was helpful.
Location near tram station. Access to the rooms.
The breakfast was ok The linen on the bed was clean, I decided agaianst looking at the matress for fear of what I might find. The room was dirty with enough hair on the floor to create a wig!! There was an old cooker and filthy cupboard in the room for no apparent reason. The shower cubicle doors were faulty and one actually fell off.
Great price, good location. A smelly bathroom can ruin your stay. A clogged shower makes it even worse. The hotel is pretty big, and the building has two sections: one of them seems to have been an apartment building in the past, which the hotel recently acquired. It looks like they had to install en-suite bathrooms to the rooms, and they messed up. Be sure to ask at the reception for one of the "classic" rooms, since the recently adjoined section doesn't yet have the quality the rest of the hotel seems to have.
Very value for money
The breakfast was really great
It is a great hotel. It is very modern and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and efficient. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
I felt like I was in a safe environment and it was within walking distance to shopping and sites
Great Location, on the Park convention to Market Place & Train Station.
Lovely hotel with friendly staff. Room was very comfortable. Excellent location. No
near city center..modern rooms...they have good holiday rate internet is expensive
This hotel was a great place to stay during our short trip to Karlsruhe. The room and bathroom were very clean and spacious. The staff was also very helpful, and spoke excellent English.
Very helpful and attentive staff, great food & comfortable, immaculately clean rooms. Perfect location if you are going to concert at Stadhalle, which is just next door. Recommended!
It was close to the Theater It was too warm in the room, there may have been something wrong with the A/C.
Great business hotel very close to the congress center, fabulous breakfast (19 eur pp), quiet spacious rooms, 10 minute walk to city center, close to a large park. Expensive Wi-Fi (didn't use it).
the staff is very helpful. Espesially Mr Ihsan ....
Quiet surrounding, conditioned room, Shower-head too low, bed too soft
Price. Room. Effectivness of wi fi connection. Parking too small.
Room was very small and warm. Window could not be opened.
This Hotel has easy access to the tram system and is near the underground. Shops are 500 m walk away. There is no bar or food available between breakfast and 1700 hours. The Hotel is more suitable for business people, than tourists, and lacks a fitness centre. The car park charge is 10 euros a day.
We booked this hotel on going home from Italy to the Netherlands. Zoo in front of hotel and shops and restaurants are about 10 minutes walk. Good value for money. Price of breakfast is high.
Service, Clean very comfortable rooms
The Hotel has a somewhat 70's outside "charme" but inside it is really nicely reneovated. The personal is very friendly and the breakfast (12 € per Person) is really woth it! The way to the Hotel is somewhat tricky, as there are a lot of construction sites in the City at the Moment.
Everything! Loved it!
everything was perfect.
Large room of good quality, good food Reception was not very friendly, small beds
Good bedroom, modern, well equipped, decent size. Helpful, friendly staff. Good breakfast in spacious dining room. We did not eat at the Hotel but receptionist happily recommended an excellent restaurant a short walk from the Hotel.
The room is large and clean. Specially, the dinner in the restaurant was very delicious!
Fantastic personel - always smiling, always helpful, great breakfast, great location! Nothing to complain!
The Hotel Rio is conveniently located for visiting the city center and for visiting other surrounding places (20 minutes from BadenBaden and 30 minutes from Heildelberg). We stayed in the new building and our room big, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was fantastic with a massive walking-in shower. the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Every morning we enjoyed a delicious and abundant breakfast. Good price for parking the car,
Cleanliness of the room, design of the bathroom I would not rate this as a four star hotel. The lobby looks very dated, there are hardly any additional services (e.g. no pool, no fitness, hotel bar closes at midnight), and if you're there in summer prepare for a hot and steaming night. Both the main hotel and the dependence opposite the street are very hot and do not feature airconditioning.
Friendly and efficient staff, nice atmosphere at the hotel, dinner in the restaurant was delicious and breakfast also good
its close proximity to the tram network. Easy to walk into the city centre. Close to place of work
Close to Karlsruhe town center. Smell of cigarette smoke (room was above hotel entrance where the smoking guests gather around the installed ashtray).
Traditional hotel atmosphere with a small library and good facilities in their junior suite - really a large bedroom with seating for three to four people. The small bar allowed smoking and there was no nearby seating to enjoy a bar drink without the smoke. The clothes hangers in the wardrobe were the no-thieving type and were extremely difficult to use. This four-star hotel should provide conventional hangers as many others do.
Very pleasant indeed and the staff were both articulate and friendly
Request made at booking ignored. Night receptionist was incredibly rude.
Central situation, comfortable, suprisingly quiet. Ideal for a business visit to Karlsruhe - trains, taxis and trams on the door step. no
I was only in the hotel for 9 hours, but I was impressed by the attention given to me by the staff. Only that my room was too warm
The staff went out of their way to accomodate our needs. They were extremely friendly and the service was great. I would have liked to see boiled eggs at breakfast instead of just poached or scrambled( those were not cooked enough for our style or taste).
Very good breakfast selection
Hi ceilings, very spacious rooms. Nicely quiet and close to the central station Equipment in Fitness outdated and not functioning very well. Extremly expensive internet
The hotel was very neat, the rooms and bathrom were spacious, the decore is charming. The breakfest, served in a beautiful room, was divers and in best quality. We had a diner in thr hotel restaurant; it was delicious and well served
The Hotel Aviva is extremely new and clean. The design is very modern and open with many windows and 'hip' lamps, chairs and other furnishings. The bathroom is large and clean. The breakfast, which is included, is incredible, with anything you'd like including bacon and eggs, cereal, yogurt, etc etc. During a particularly hot spell here, we asked the staff for a fan (ventilator), which they didn't have, but they promptly went out and bought many fans. The wlan/wifi is free and easy-to- use. All around excellent hotel.
value for money, good location
I did pay 260€ for one night in the smalest single room I have ever seen (and I travel every week for diferent places in the world). Too expensive; low quality.
Nice and friendly staff. Good facilities
American style breakfast-scrambled eggs,sauage(links+paddies), bacon, outdoor sitting area No washcloth to use in the shower
Excellent italian restaurant 5 mins walk Building works woke us at 7.20am
The carpet in the room was very wet, it seemed that the previous occupant let the water out from the shower and it went out into the room, it was saturated for meters around the bathroom door and because of this the room had a nasty smell.
the room was vey clean and modern, equiped with all the facilities you need. breakfast was good and staff was very friendly. modern and clean hotel room 203 is too close to the reception and bar and there is no wall or hall door in between, so we had a lot of noise and little sleep. there were not enough parking spaces.
It was a very well designed and comfortable hotel. The free internet was very useful. Moreover, I have not had such breakfast before. Thank you. The hotel is a little far from the city center but you can reach there in 5 min. by a public bus.
The staff was very friendly. The hotel was modern and groovy. The breakfast buffet was hands-down the best ever. Loved the gummy bears around the lobby. The extra bed in our room was not that comfortable,but this was to be expected.
This hotel was very nice the resturant had great food the beer was good. The room was very nice and modern and clean. The staff was very helpful ,we liked that the hotel has a garage underground. Everything you need is right there at this hotel rest,food,and drinks.
Almost anything and I'd like to reccomend for those who like modern style and comfort. The parking fee could be free.
Wonderful room, wonderful breakfast, friendly staff from housekeeping to the front desk (who all speak English!) - I've stayed there 5 times and can't wait to go back!
High standard of cleanliness and inspiring design. More light in bathroom, was a little dark.
very pleasant staff and agood hotel
Very nice, polite and helpful service, great breakfast, very clean and quiet :) Brewery is in the house was really great! no, everything was perfect!
Cool design, beautiful hotel. Loved the automatic blinds. I am American and wanted a hardboiled egg, not soft. That is all.
hotel staff location shops tram system and how close to the major road network but in a small town / free up grade to a better room on arrival. football is always on TV in the main bar, hard to get a table in the bar as its always so busy
Very good breakfast - beautifully presented!
The Personall of the Hotel were very kind. Below of the Hotel, there is Bar Restaurant that can be very loud for the Hotel rooms
comfortable room and very good bathroom; possible to watch UK TV channels; At 19 euros per head, breakfast would have been far too expensive if we had had it in the hotel
Good service, clean and quiet, close to tram. The hotel is not as close to the old town as I expected.
It took 4 attempts to open the room upon arrival. The room was directly across a Taxi stand with extremely loud noise all night long
Expensive breakfast 19 euro each.A 4 star hotel should have free internet not 5 euro for 30 min. or 12.50 for a day.
The location of the hotel was perfect. The staff was very helpfull and polite. The room was good value for money. We will definitely stay again everything was very good. No faults found
Friendly staff and a very good breakfast area plus variety of food. There was no internal hotel gym available.
Comfortable beds. The restaurant.
Excellent food & helpful staff. Prune flavoured sweets were unusual touch! Hotel very convenient to city centre & trams which we'd have been lost without as we're a mature couple who tire easily. Tasteful decor & comfortable beds. Resturant closed on Sundays for evening meals, though a member of staff, when asked told us were was open. Had to go to lobby each morning for tea or coffee no facilities in room so couldn't have a cuppa on return to hotel.
Location, value for money, cleanliness, proximity to motorway network and hockenheimring. Comfortable beds and housekeeping service regarding the room Car parking too expensive at 15 euros per day, although happy with the security of the car park
Nice hotel, well located. Hotel staff were perfect. Room was nice. Internet connection was not so stable... The only negative point.
Spacious and comfortable room, pleasant staff, good breakfast and free internet.
nice breakfast buffet
The location and it was a good value.
It's very good for business trip (Free Wi-Fi) and breafast is very nice.
Everything, but especially cleanness, breakfast, quiet area, internet at rooms! I can only recommend this hotel.
Friendly staff and good breakfast.
It was very reasonably priced, friendly staff, good breakfast the following morning, and they allowed us to check out (and eat breakfast) a little later than usual due to a heavy Saturday night. It was convenient for the tram to the city centre and very quiet at night. We were moved to a different room as the original room was non-smoking. This was fine, but it was a twin room rather than a double, and the beds couldn't be moved together. The room was also quite small, but apparently this is usual for a German hotel.
The staff were very helpful in giving accurate information about the city. The room was very clean & free from outside noise.
Very friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable family room. Quiet location. Extensive breakfast buffet. We stayed one night en route from France, and the location was quite OK from the motorway.
good sized room,no complaints a little far from centre
Great breakfast, large, clean and comfortable rooms -
The Hotel Star Inn in Karlsruhe is located next to the Siemens Tech Centre in Karlsruhe. the Tram line is just in front of the hotel, which takes you in 12min to the centre of Karlsruhe. The Hotel has a free parking. It is new and the rooms are very nice. It is located a little bit outside of Karlsruhe, hence dinner after 21:30 is not possible in the direct suroundings.
the hotel was under reconstrukcion, no information about it at booking.com, internet did not run even promoted on web.
Quite place, close to Siemens park. No wireless Internet; no restaraunt at evenings.
Very kind staff, nice clean room and bathroom, great breakfast, public transport in walking distance. A hotwaterboiler in the room would have been nice.
Very clean room and bath, excellent parking available, good break feast buffet, easy access to hotel and elevator. not as quiet as I had hoped for and I wish there was a small coffee machine in the room
clean and modern room , helpful stuff.
Good value. Excellent location
it is a very quiet hotel and mainly for the people invlove with Siemens. It is clean and having a very good staff. no facilities
Free Interent connection and a good continental breakfast for 10 Euros. Also, there is a tram stop in front of the hotel. No soap bars in the bath room, only liquid soap dispensers. Water temperature in shower is limited (for safety) to a value too low for my personal preference
Why didn´t you write about no air conditioning and I thought the traffic was irritating, when you have the windows open
The owners were very friendly, and both spoke English - a big help to us with our rudimentary German. The hotel was well located - an easy walk to the market and to Schloss Karlsruhe. It was also near a bus stop for easy transporation from and to the train station. The rooms were very nice for the price range. Breakfast was good and had a variety of hot and cold foods. The shower was small and somewhat awkward to use.
Very correct, big spacious rooms. We are two adults and two small children and we had all comforts just like at home. Very good quality compare to the price! The staffs are friendly, the location is perfect (quiet area very near to the centre). Next time we visit Baden-Wutenberg region, we'll stay in this hotel, no doubt!
Nice hotel located close to both city center and university.
central location, friendly staff
Good position at 5 minute from the city center and 20 from the station, very nice english speaking staff. Good and rich breakfast. Rooms on the road side are noisy (cars). The wi-fi internet connection was not very strong in my room.
The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable; our room was small, but comfortable. Not really a complaint, but the design of the room lent itself to bumping your head on the angled beam, which we did several times.
The hotel is very close to the city centre. It has a nice sauna, which you can enjoy whenever you want.
++ Professional staff - Very small hotel parking, full. But staff told me to park on the road, which was fine.
WiFi access was excellent and free. Nice breakfast buffet in a cheery dining room, also included in the room price. Very good value for the room rate.
Garage and breakfast facilities.
It was nice to get the quite room we requested. The first person on the desk was not very polite it appears that rooms are not available until 2pm not 12.30 as adivised on you web page.Thought the car parking chatges excessive.
New refitted rooms, very large offer for breakfast Strange smell in corridor
Free internet access and friendly staff
Very extremely central, garage
Air conditioning, closeness to restaurants and shopping
The Hotel was clean, well located, and good facilities included. A bit too pricy
good and friendly service restricted access to parking, ask for permit to park in the street
The furniture in the room is quite old.
good breakfast buffet, clean rooms, parking, close by city center of Karlsruhe
Location excellent, close to all major bus & train routes as well as all places of interest and sight seeing.
Reception lady was cooperative Parking entrace so narrow, our car could not pass. We had to park on street away. Room too narro.
The breakfast was priced separately on top of the Bookings reservation but was excellent. The hotel is nicely located on a side street just 100 m from the main shopping and public transportation street 1 km from the Marktplatz.
Proximity to my workplace for the following day Was not able to take advantage of the WLAN, because my laptop could not find the signal
Good location. Clean.
Friendly staff, breakfast OK Wifi didn't work on my PC, I had a room with 2 beds instead one big bed, but I have change it.
This hotel is very closed to the center and in the same time the rooms are very quiet
The room and cleanliness was superior. Good WC standards and well supplied. There is a restaurant that is part of the hotel (to one side of the lobby). It served poor quality food and there was hair in the noodle dish I ordered.
Free WiFi in the lobby, small kitchenette in the room, helpful staff, ample parking space, proximity to a discount supermarket.
Courteous and helpful staff
Clean Close to supermarket, has fridge and hotplates in room Very noisy kids running around corridors late into the night Breakfast much too expensive
the price is very good no
good hotel and breakfast for one night with good prices and free internet. had to insist to have indoor parking (although it was empty). keep asking if outdoor parking is full
Very comfortable Hotel, recommended for a stopover on long journeys. Very safe and secure garage.
A functional hotel with pleasant staff conveniently located for FZK Research Institute or city. Good value and nice Chinese Restaurant next door.
The good attached Chinese restaurant. The cost of the breakfast and air conditioning would heve made it more comfortable.
excellent hotel, very clean, very big room, new decoration, free spce for car parking.
very difficult to use garage
All Staffs are very friendly & helpful. Hope to have air conditioner.
nice, polite, clean pillow: nice to look but to big to sleep
The location is extremely good. And the breakfast on the top floor is very good. A good choice in the buffet. Kind staff.
Good location, next to the main city point, good internet access, nice view, decent breakfast. The hotel is next to the main market where trams ride. It makes pretty loud noice with open windows. However, in my case it was not too bad, and pretty silent with closed windows.
Great location in the middle of town, nice and helpful staff. Front rooms are a bit noisy due to trams passing and turning in front the building but it wasn't a problem for us (room was on the 2nd floor) - even though we live in a quiet place.
wireless internet, hotel is in the city center
I strongly enjoyed free good quality wireless internet. Position is fantastic, if you interested in Karlsruhe, from this hotel you can visit the city at best.
Clean, comfortable, non-smoking room. Not having tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Good ambient, best location the internet connection was really bad and the mattress could be better
+ breakfast + location + staff - no air conditioning - very noisy - no fridge in the room
Staff is very friendly and helpful.
it was good !
It´s a Brand New or re-decorated hotel, design, cleanliness, everything related the building was fantastic. Staff was great. Recommended 100%. Breakfast buffet like a 5* hotel. No
Close to Tram and railways station, Zoo. Cleany Some noise between the room
Very clean, very close to railway station, breakfast was excellent although quite expensive. Reception was very slow, and sometimes unmanned, no acknowledgement when queuing. Pillows were awkward - one was insufficient, two were too much. Also no extra pillows available in room, and locating one extra each for us seemed to be a little much for the receptionist.
The location was ideal for me the staff were very friendly and the room was clean and modern with good bathroom facilities I could not find fault with the hotel
We booked the hotel as a stop off for us en-route to Austria (driving). We were very impressed with the cleanliness, wonderful staff and excellent breakfast. In addition the secure parking was a real bonus. No
The staff was friendly. The place of the hotel is great. Easy to reach the city center and the train station. There is only one problem that I face in Ibis hotels. Please change the pillows. They are not ergonomic. Every morning I have pain in my neck.
Good clen and modern hotel fine for business purposes, dont' let the railway location put you off. attitude of receptionist as someone else charged something to my room and when I pointed itout to the receptionist her attitude was poor aboutthe situation.
The hotel is conveniently located for those traveling by train. The rooms are rationally, nicely equipped and very well insulated (noise of the many tramways). Excellent breakfast. Reception staff not very well formed for this job, and asking for advance payment is neither courteous nor efficient, because extra charges are to be payed anyway at the end of the stay.
location convinient, quiet also it's on the main-train-station, very friendly staff, good connection to all busines and shopping locations Entance looks a bit to cool
