WARNING: DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU HAVE AN ALLERGY OR SENSITIVITY TO PERFUME!!!! I checked into the hotel, all seemed fine, the receptionist was very kind and quickly checked me in and I went up into my room. When I walked into the room I was smacked in the face with the strongest old lady perfume you could imagine. It made me sick. immediate head ache and queasiness. It’s no joke. I’ve never experienced anything like it and I honestly couldn’t believe that any hotel would think that doing that to the rooms would be acceptable. I opened the window to air out the room but nothing would help. The receptionist informed me that they heavily perfume all the rooms as a rule. He switched my room to try to be helpful, but there was no helping it, not even opening the window for a half hour. I had to book another hotel and leave - of course, I’m wondering what exactly they are trying to cover up with that horrible perfume, mold? I think it’s completely unfair NOT to advertise that on their page. It may seem trivial to some, but to me, it was making me feel sick with a headache, stomach ache and a scratchy throat. I’m also a singer and was in Karlsruhe for an audition, so my health, especially my throat, are very important. I’m truly a “roughing it” type of person, but bathing in old lady perfume is something I cannot handle, especially since the decision to ruin the room with the perfume was not in my control. I felt better once I left, but I probably won’t get my money back.
