Old fashioned
The gentleman on reception was fantastic! The restaurant was not so fantastic. The choice for gluten free was no choice at all. The waitress tried though. The place is rather old fashioned and I am puzzled as to how it received an 'excellent' rating o

Hotel Rio Karlsruhe Germany.
It is a great location, with easy access to the city center. The hotel is very clean and comfortable, with an excellent breakfast, and good bar. The only problem was that it was very hot, and there was no air conditioning in the rooms.

Toller Aufenthalt
Ganz tolles Hotel in der Nähe zur Innenstadt. Komfortables Hotel und das Personal ist sehr freundlich. Wir haben bei unseren Aufenthalt ein Upgrade erhalten, deshalb haben wir uns entschieden eine Nacht zusätzlich zu buchen. Leider konnten wir dies dann nicht mehr über machen. Die Innenstadt ist schnell in 10 min zu erreichen und eine italienische Gaststätte mit sehr tollen Angeboten ist auch gleich in der Nachbarschaft. In Karlsruhe bleibt das unsere 1. Adresse.
