Novotel Karlsruhe City

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Karlsruhe is relatively a small city in my impression. I was surprise that Karlsruhe has such a new, modern hotel with such large scale. It is located near to the largest shopping mall in Karlsruhe. You can get your meal and everything nearby. Soft and comfortable beddings too.

Stayed 2 nights at Hotel Novotel rooms very spacious and comfortable beds. Disappointed with the tea/coffee facilities - did not expect to have paper cups in a 4 star hotel. Breakast was excellent with hot and cold dishes. All staff very friendly and helpful.

Very complete breakfast with many options available. Rooms are spacious with a small walk in closet. Staff were numerous and very friendly. Well trained as well. All in all, a very comfortable experience.

The hotel is centrally located. 20 minutes walk from the Train Stop. City is quite. Breakfast was good. Rooms are clean and simple and of decent size compared to others in Germany. Checkout and Check-in was fast. Free wifi throughout the hotel.

I recently stayed here for business and really enjoyed the whole experience. The staff were really friendly and very helpful with any questions that I had. I booked an executive room which has the advantage of a daily stocked minibar included in the price. The hotel is walking distance to just about anywhere in Karlsruhe and there are plenty of restaurants nearby, some of which are very good. The hotel breakfast was plentiful and had a large selection but the layout can make it get a bit crowded at times. The gym was pretty uninspiring to be fair and was just a room tucked into the basement. It was pretty hot and stuffy when I used it. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for 6 nights. Very good hotel, clean, great service. The buffet breakfast was extensive. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Only thing I would suggest is to have the ironing board in the room (and not have to go downstairs). Not sure if it is a European thing but having the ironing in the room would be convenient.

This hotel is in a perfect spot. Close to train station. Close to city center. Blocks from a serious mall. ( 3 stories high and huge ) Clean and helpful and friendly front desk personal. A beautiful park was right next door. Great for a good walk.

Stayed here two nights for business. Comfortable beds, good shower, good service, large room, good breakfast and ideal location. Practically perfect bar one thing: you cannot use the iron in your room. Due to fire regulations you need to take your items to a room on the first floor to do your ironing. Not a huge issue but not something I would expect.

Rooms were as you expect, aircon, well decorated, clean and fresh, breakfast was good with lots of options. I particularly liked eating on the terrace as the weather was lovely. I was not so happy to pay nearly €5 for water or €8.50 for a white wine at the very small bar. I also did not expect to be handed an old pot of coffee from the previous occupants of the table when I asked for coffee with my breakfast.... maybe staff being over zealous about waste!!

The staff wasn't very happy about an other app (Expedia/Hotels com) was quite cheaper than their own rate. The back talked us in German during check in. The room and hotel was fine, but there wasn't enough bathtowels and the bathroomfloors was a bit dirty
