Nice Restaurant. Close to the highway. Free internet connection. No air conditioning and ventilation system in the rooms.
Quiet location, nice food in restaurant. Helpful service staff. My room has a bad odor, which does not go off even after 24 hours. Suggest staff to do more thorough cleaning including air freshners for each room.
The hotel is close to the highway Munchen - Karlsruhe and is very convenient when travelling from northern europe to southern europe as a one night stayover hotel
After asking for an extra pillow it arrived 1 hour later. Informed "Oh sorry forgot" not particularly the best side of the hotel. Ask for a room away from street, noise from there starts at 5.30 am
the hotel lives upto its well deserved european hotel to stay at, reputation, the ambiance was good and the breakfast was even better. for being an excellent hotel, it unfortunately let it self down by the state of the carpark, which was under a great depth of snow and if it had not been for the kindness of other guests i would still be stuck in even with a shovel and snow chains,
The restaraunt is very good Rooms too small
Great location for travellers as so close to the motorway. Stayed in the new section which was excellent and great staff
Excellent menu choice - friendliness of all staff. Just that the first floor corridor appeared to have Cigarette Smoking smell.
A comfortable hotel with excellent food. Close to the autobahn. An excellent spot to break a journey back to UK Some road noise.
The rooms (including bathroom) are so small that one barely can move!
We have stayed there before and the comfort is as expected. 3rd bed is a little uncomfortable !!!!!
Very quiet at night. Excellent breakfast.
Nice spacious rooms, quiet with a pleasant view, excellent breakfast. An extra bonus was that Nigel Kennedy was staying there and invited us to his room for a drink.....or two ! Arriving was fine, but one has to labour up a steep incline to get to the railway station.
Wonderful breakfast! The sauna facilities didn't open until 14.00 making them impossible to use on the day of departure - dissappointing.
Very modern hotel situated in a beautiful and convenient setting in Pforzheim. Enjoyed the hotel amenities like the free wireless internet and the free breakfast. Definitely a plus that the reception staff all spoke English, as I do not speak German. And they exchange foreign currency which is very convenient when traveling abroad. I would have liked a more extensive and varied dining menu for the room service.
Very nice and comfortable rooms, excellent restaurant and breakfast buffet (prices accordingly!), good position close to the park and to the town centre The reception staff during check-in could have been a bit more welcoming
The staff was extremely kind and helpful. If I could request on thing....I would want to see and upgrade in the fitness room.Maybe another treadmill and up graded equipment. Maybe more, two or three, english channels on the telly, though I respect that we are in Germany....Thank you
Nice, relatively modern hotel. Good breakfast selection. Nice location. Friendly personnel. Extra charge for Internet access (T-Mobile); breakfast not included in room rate.
rooms, restaurant, hotel garage internet access not included; room ac not individually adjustable
The food was excellent No english-speaking TV except CNN
Breakfast food, dining room and service was fantastic. Front desk staff could have been much wamer and friendlier. Would be nice if you could use an ironing board/iron in your room
Being in a very quiet atmosphere Yes, the unability to get a wireless internet connection even if normally this was available. And noone was able to give right information.
The hotel was a good choice but as the weather was hot, the lack of air-con meant we slept with the windows open and the associated traffic noise.
better space in comparision to other hotels I experianced in Europe
The hotel can be very easily reached from the highway Karlsruhe - Stuttgart. As we wanted to stay only 1 night, the location was the main reason, why we have chosen it. On the other side, the hotel is a bit noisy (noise coming from the highway and the very busy road in front of the hotel).
All of the items in Q.2. Breakfast was particularly good.
Breakfast very noisy, traffic start very early in the morning. Due to lack of air-conditioning you have to open window. Lobby and especially bar is not very cosy. No restaurants and pubs in area aroudn hotel.
clean comfortable and good value for money no restaurant - a pity as there is not much choice nearby in Pforzheim
The surface of the bedroom, the newspapers available in the room
Good position for Black forest The evening meals had a very limited choice and no one in our party (4) enjoyed the food. On this basis alone we would not stay there again
Good service, nice decor, good food, beautifull suroundings
Everything. Staff was excellent and attentive. Room was easily accessible and the spa/pool area was fantastic. Nothing.
Everything just perfect. I love this place,will be back soon.
Quiet, relaxing,excelant suroundings 1st class pool area
Excellent surroundings, friendly staff!
The surrounding "forest" area , great place for relax and hike, restaurant waiters are good and friendly. The hotel needs total renew, the rooms are not as expected at all, we arrived with standard room reservation, and it was disaster, the receptionist offered all available room classes, but we did not change due unfair "compare to price" rooms quality , the breakfast is just bellow our expectation, the dinner was oily but fine, but the waiters were so kind, nothing to do if u want to have dinner in the surrounding area, even with a car, so u need to stick with the hotel restaurant.
food, location, apperance & atmosphire, service tv, luck of english tv chanels, bar was poor.
nice friendly people good food a great location the elavator buttons to the third floor did not work so good. needs some maintenance. it was ok to use stairs
That the hotel keeps up good old standards. You have enlarged the hotel in fine traditional style.
Convenient location for access from autobahn. Secure Garage parking
Clean, modern and well located. I was told by staff over the phone that the breakfast buffet was included in the quote rate, it was not! Large window in shower stall. We could not close curtains, so bright lights shown into room all night.
Everything was ok but it's a bit bland. More of a business stopover type of hotel. Parking was good and the Italian restaurant downstairs was good. Breakfast was excellent if a little expensive.
the breakfast cost for the quality of romm
The staff was very helpful and they also spoke English.
great breakfast and friendly service
Easy location just off the Autobahn. BUT beware the speed cameras. Didn't eat at the hotel restaurant; seemed a bit pricey. But next door is a good sports bar/restaurant.
The location and atmosphere of old, but renovated and clean house. The owner was wery kind and friendly
Vicinity of limited access highway Closed restauranr at the end of the week
Friendly staff, good food and service in the restaurant. Sauna facilities downstairs and good value W-Lan internet throughout hotel. Room and bathroom somewhat old fashioned - limited parking on site but spaces available nearby
wellnes room, Restaurant no
excellent en route stop over, with good traditional German cuisine
Nice and clean We wanted to have dinner, but unfortunately the restaurant was closed on Saturdaynights.
Staff very helpfull and pleasant. Not far from motorway and city. Food excellant.Rooms very clean and comfortable Good restaurant for evening meal.Most enjoyable overnight stay.
The hotel was a good location for my work in Weissach. The location offered some transportation alternatives to A8 which is often clogged up.
Hotel Was In a Good Area
Friendly staff and nice food in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast
The room was very goed ,large well appointed bathroom,Breakfast excellent.Look for Birkenfeld enzkreis when using navigation instrument/
The restaurant is excellent As we had a dog we had to stay in the old building and there was no air con.
PREIS-lEISTUNG; Sauberkeit und Funktionaliät des Zimmers Der Besitzer und Chef war eher muffig!
very friendly hotel staff, very quiet location, very good breakfast the young lady in the restaurant & receoption - hardly spoke any english, except for "yes", TV did not work at all
Nice and clean with character. Able to walk into the forest from the hotel - about 15 minute walk to the outskirts of the forest. Friendly. A bit out of the way and not too easy to find and the food was variable in the restaurant (tasted a bit too artificial, though the salad was good). The breakfst was good though.
the relaxed atmosphere in a small village, with friendly people and the surprisingly well equipped room for its orice
The restaurant and kitchen, which belong tot the Hotel, are very good - recommendation!
Diner, breakfast No airco
Staff were cooperative and flexible with check out time. Breakfast was pleasant. Room was comfortable and in very good condition
location, price, staff courteous and helpful Reception was only open for a few hours a day and parking was very limited
Friendly, helpful staff
My husband and I stayed in a double room on the 3rd floor for 2 nights. Room was clean and looked like it was newly renovated. Same for the toilet. Was a great place to spend the night. Staff was also very friendly. The ventilator in the toilet was rather noisy, but it was activated by the light switch, so once the light was switched off, it wasn't a problem.
location, restaurant (food), friendly services at the restaurant.
Discrete, and nice hotel. Beautiful setting. Excellent food. Comfortable room.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff, went out of their way to make our stay pleasant and enjoyable. Added bonus of sauna and associated facilities, could not be classed as a genuine spa hotel but they're not selling it as such. Good, local dishes, superbly cooked. SIgns to hotel few and far between and not easy to spot, make sure you have a printout of map & directions or that your sat nav definitely has the correct location.
Lovely location, extremely friendly staff and although little English spoken staff went out of their way to understand our requests and explain the menu, etc. Decor a little dated but all v.clean and well presented. Will definitely stay again and next time for a few nights.
Staff friendly. Room small, but clean. Room airconditiong best feature. Close to town center. Location within block of Bahnhoff. Run down part of city.
Clean,comfortable with pleasant staff.
easy to find and nice and peaceful surrounding
nothing!! very big problem with parking(only 4 parking place),breakfast poor,no english speaker,reception close at 10 PM,
Close to shopping precinct. Friendliness of staff.
Only 4 parking places
Located i central Pforzheim. Difficult to find the hotel. Four floors and no elevator
Availability - we could not find other accomodation at short notice in the Stuttgart area Difficulty in finding the hotel. Inability of checking in late after dinner (we were not sure, so diverted to check-in ahead of a business dinner engagement, and we subsequently very late for that appointment). It was clear that had we arrived late after dinner without having first checked in we would have been unable to have done so (we did of course as a result of checking-in earlier receive a late key).
As a middle age solo female traveler making my first journey to Germany, I felt quite safe. Although the staff did not speak English and I do not speak German, they tried very hard to be sure my needs were met. The room was very clean and there was easy access to enter/exit the city. They have a lovely little breakfast buffet in the AM, It was very quiet. There are only 4 or 5 rooms to a floor - I was in #11 which was 3 flights (15 stairs each) up, so you do want to either be prepared to make a lot of trips or be organized and remember everything the first time. Also, when packing it is important to remember that you are going to carry/drag what you bring up the stairs! The parking lot is very small and difficult to manuever - however, the lovely desk clerk went out and guided me backing out between obstacles.
Car parking available under cover. Convenient restaurant next door
nice and comfortable room, free underground parking, restoration right in hotel yard, free WiFI in the lobby, very close to city center. The Bretten is small but very interesting old German city. I'd like to advice the hotel for any kind of trip - business or tourist.
Relatively large room. Good breakfast buffet. Nice personnel
The stuff was very very nice, the hotel is close to the plaza and to the train station. great value for the money! nothing
Quiet place, beautiful center of the town, clean and well equipped room, not expensive.
excellent location, very close to the old town. Good breakfast in a very pleasant setting
The room was clean. Free parking is almost impossible in the neighborhood, but you can get private parking for 7 euros a night. Otherwise Achat is miles away in quality than Etap hotels.
