Great location for the city and easy access to trams. Spacious, cleaned very day: kitchenette, large bedroom/lounge area and bathroom. Reception staff very pleasant, English spoken. Made very welcome. An excellent stay. We have already booked again, for September
On first appearances this hotel might disappoint as it is right next to a tram stop on a busy junction and the pavement is being repaired outside. However, the quality of the hotel far exceeds this first impression. The interior is not lavish but it is very clean and comfortable. The staff are incredibly helpful and welcoming.
We booked a superior room as we were travelling with a baby and were surprised and delighted to see the cot in the room with cute duvet and complementary baby toiletries. We also had complimentary drinks in the mini bar (mostly soft drinks) free WiFi and complementary breakfast buffet which was fantastic quality.
The car parking is right beneath the hotel with an elevator so access is easy.
All in all a very good value for money hotel, very central, no noise, comfortable, warm, clean, excellent staff. I could not find any faults even if I wanted to!
We choose this hotel due its previous reviews, and its proximity to the Christmas markets, and it did not disappoint. The welcome we received at the check in desk was excellent, and provided all the information we needed. The room was spacious and very comfortable, and the choice at breakfast was very good. The leisure facilities at the hotel were also excellent, and we made use of the Sauna and steam room.

This is a very nice hotel with extremely good rates for the the quality of the hotel. the location is very good, but there's construction occurring on hear by streets.
Overall it will be one of better hotel experiences and I travel a lot (over 10 European and Asia countries in the past three years and this hotel ranks in the top three hotels I've stayed in over that time.
A difficult place to find as they go by a different name and the hotel is only in the 4th floor of a building.
The reception desk is located in a very "smoky" bar at the street level.
The room had a dirty carpet, not lights in the bathroom and no telephone to contact the reception desk.
I can say that this is a strange setting hotel..
Nevertheless, the breakfast buffet was excellent!
We loved this hotel. It is beautiful and clean. I am not sure what the mattresses are, but they are truly the most comfortable I have ever slept on; I wanted to take the mattress with me. The room we had was gorgeous.
The staff was incredibly gracious, and luckily, we worked with Ulla much of the time: she could not have been more helpful.
The breakfast buffet was the best we experienced in Germany - the variety was amazing. The servers were so cheerful. We ate dinner there twice. The first night was excellent, but on the second, I believe we were served leftovers. That would be my only complaint for an otherwise perfect experience.

"Very pleasent stay, high standard rooms/breakfast"
Very nice stay, very comfortable, clean and modern rooms. Good breakfast, free wifi, helpful and friendly staff. Only, very minor, downsides are the stairs/lift area used to access the rooms which is much less aesthetically pleasing and the lack of food available in the hotels bar facility. However some very nice and reasonably prices restaurants like Pasta Pasta and Enchilada nearby.
What hotel has NO air conditioning these days? Maybe its climate change, but we sweated all night even with our windows wide open. This was end of August, and there was a thunderstorm in the early evening as well. Didn't help.
But it was only 7 minutes to the soccer stadium next morning.
Great location. All the city center restaurants and pubs are right in this area. The rooms are larger than normal for German hotels. But the restaurants and pubs make for very noisy nights. Even with windows closed it keeps you up. Good thing is that every room had a small stand up fan. Put it right by your headboard and you can drown out the noise.

The Schloss Hotel is most likely the best place to stay in Karlsruhe. The charm of this house beats the post-modern pseudo-chique of most other places to stay in the area. The ride in the elevator from 1914 doesn't only take you to your room, but is also an adventure back in time. The bathroom had a real big tub and a a large window to look out from. Although, I was always late for the ham & eggs at the breakfeast buffet, the staff was always happy to make more. Easily accesible and secured parking in front of the entrance and convenient access to all public transportation of the city.
