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.
Room was very small and warm. Window could not be opened.
Everything! Loved it!
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.
Friendly helpful staff No gym
Large room of good quality, good food Reception was not very friendly, small beds
Service, Clean very comfortable rooms
Quiet surrounding, conditioned room, Shower-head too low, bed too soft
the staff is very helpful. Espesially Mr Ihsan ....
everything was perfect.
they always care for your stay very comfort any let you feel that you are not allon and at home thank you very much
Friendly welcoming staff at reception. Easy to find from railway station, Close to City Centre Price for breakfast rather too high.
central hotel close to facilities in the town
The staff has always been helpful and friendly. Public areas could be modernized. Free parking on roof must be accessed via supermarket next door.
Clean if a little faded around the edges. Probably in need of a little updating but for the price then no complaints.
Staff were nice. Good, yet expensive, Italian restaurant. Parking fee and the separate charge for breakfast, which was not a good value.
Very tasteful deco and really soothing energy in the room. One of the best mattresses! Narrow space for toilet and shower.
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.
It was comfortable and convenient for our business location. The restaurant menu was somewhat limited
Excellent receptionist: helpful and proactive
everything: services, breakfast,cleanliness ,.... No
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.
Very value for money
Location near tram station. Access to the rooms.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Room was modern, clean, and quiet. Staff was helpful.
The breakfast was really great
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!
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).
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
It was close to the Theater It was too warm in the room, there may have been something wrong with the A/C.
It is a great hotel. It is very modern and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and efficient. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
Great Location, on the Park convention to Market Place & Train Station.
I felt like I was in a safe environment and it was within walking distance to shopping and sites
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.
Close to Karlsruhe town center. Smell of cigarette smoke (room was above hotel entrance where the smoking guests gather around the installed ashtray).
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,
Fantastic personel - always smiling, always helpful, great breakfast, great location! Nothing to complain!
The room is large and clean. Specially, the dinner in the restaurant was very delicious!
its close proximity to the tram network. Easy to walk into the city centre. Close to place of work
Friendly and efficient staff, nice atmosphere at the hotel, dinner in the restaurant was delicious and breakfast also good
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.
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 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.
Nice and friendly staff. Good facilities
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.
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.
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.
American style breakfast-scrambled eggs,sauage(links+paddies), bacon, outdoor sitting area No washcloth to use in the shower
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.
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.
Excellent italian restaurant 5 mins walk Building works woke us at 7.20am
Very good breakfast selection
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.
Request made at booking ignored. Night receptionist was incredibly rude.
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 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).
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
Very pleasant indeed and the staff were both articulate and friendly
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
Central situation, comfortable, suprisingly quiet. Ideal for a business visit to Karlsruhe - trains, taxis and trams on the door step. no
High standard of cleanliness and inspiring design. More light in bathroom, was a little dark.
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 nice, polite and helpful service, great breakfast, very clean and quiet :) Brewery is in the house was really great! no, everything was perfect!
Almost anything and I'd like to reccomend for those who like modern style and comfort. The parking fee could be free.
Cool design, beautiful hotel. Loved the automatic blinds. I am American and wanted a hardboiled egg, not soft. That is all.
Very good breakfast - beautifully presented!
very pleasant staff and agood hotel
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!
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.
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
Everything, but especially cleanness, breakfast, quiet area, internet at rooms! I can only recommend this hotel.
nice breakfast buffet
good sized room,no complaints a little far from centre
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 location and it was a good value.
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.
Spacious and comfortable room, pleasant staff, good breakfast and free internet.
It's very good for business trip (Free Wi-Fi) and breafast is very nice.
++ Professional staff - Very small hotel parking, full. But staff told me to park on the road, which was fine.
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.
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.
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.
Why didn´t you write about no air conditioning and I thought the traffic was irritating, when you have the windows open
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!
Very kind staff, nice clean room and bathroom, great breakfast, public transport in walking distance. A hotwaterboiler in the room would have been nice.
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
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
Great breakfast, large, clean and comfortable rooms -
Quite place, close to Siemens park. No wireless Internet; no restaraunt at evenings.
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.
clean and modern room , helpful stuff.
the hotel was under reconstrukcion, no information about it at booking.com, internet did not run even promoted on web.
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
Good value. Excellent location
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
Garage and breakfast facilities.
Very extremely central, garage
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.
The Hotel was clean, well located, and good facilities included. A bit too pricy
Air conditioning, closeness to restaurants and shopping
Extremely kind and helpful staff, it made all the difference. Also: great location, nice and spacious room with free internet connection.
Near to centre of town 1 .Unable to make a hot drink in the room. 2. Small breakfast room.
This is the time of maintennace please call the...
Location, staff friendly, room OK Breakfest room is a bit small - It os not easy to find the way to the parking with the car because some streets are closed in the evening...
Clean, well situated, walking distance to restaurants and shopping, underground parking available in city centre, great!
The room was very clean. Location great. Staff very friendly. Perfect
Very friendly staff,very central to local bars etc,and a good size room. No A/C but at this price its unfair to expect it.
Staff very friendly. Well located with several restaurants, bars and terraces nearby. Very close to the main street and the castle.
Central city location with parking, pleasant and helpful staff, clean throughout, simple but pleasant breakfast Parking and Breakfast were extra. Not a problem but good to know
It was very central room very basic and smelly curtain did not close all way round
Room comfortable, plenty of shops and restaurants close to hotel. Internet connection actually worked properly. Tea and coffee making facilities in room, but no cups. Ended up drinking tea from a beer glass.
The arrangements in the appartment were very nice
Although they have Cafe/Restaurant, it is open in only breakfast time. On th other hand, there is no loby or a place to wait for room cleaning i̇f you arrive earlier. There is No loby to wait in a warm place.
second room I got, staff First I got unconfortable and old room (on 2 floors) without kitchen so the price should not be the same as for the dubble room I actually booked and moved into.
Everything! I was really impressed!
it was clean and friendly service
great two floor apartment with kitchen...across the street from internet cafe...bed very nice
The breakfast was actually nice and if you pay for the parking you will never have to figure out where to park.
The hotel has good instalations for a short or longer stay (cozy apartment with good bath, refrigerator, kichen), a desk with internet if you have to work, good breakfast.
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.
Good service, clean and quiet, close to tram. The hotel is not as close to the old town as I expected.
Friendly staff and a very good breakfast area plus variety of food. There was no internal hotel gym available.
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.
Comfortable beds. The restaurant.
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
Nice hotel, well located. Hotel staff were perfect. Room was nice. Internet connection was not so stable... The only negative point.
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
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
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
This hotel is very closed to the center and in the same time the rooms are very quiet
Good location. Clean.
Location excellent, close to all major bus & train routes as well as all places of interest and sight seeing.
The furniture in the room is quite old.
good breakfast buffet, clean rooms, parking, close by city center of Karlsruhe
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 and friendly service restricted access to parking, ask for permit to park in the street
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.
Reception lady was cooperative Parking entrace so narrow, our car could not pass. We had to park on street away. Room too narro.
