Good For Solo
THIS PLACE IS A ZOO
Yep, this hotel is next door to the Zoo! It just doesn’t get any closer than this. It is located just across the street from the main train station as well. If you are a nature lover and want to be close to the animals – this is the hotel for you. Any closer and you will have to sleep in the animal cages.
They offer modern & bright rooms, a café, restaurant, bar and a small business conference room.
They are located right next to the zoo, but are a good 15-20 minute walk from the centre of town.
Ordinarily I don't stay overnight in Karlsruhe, because I can just as well go back to Frankfurt on the train, but for the occasion of the big VT meeting "EuroMeet 2008" I made an exception and booked a single room for two nights at this hotel "Am Tiergarten".
The best thing about it is the location, since it is just opposite the main railway station and directly adjoining the zoo, so if the weather is nice you can eat breakfast outdoors on their terrace right by the park at the zoo entrance. (But don't worry, there are no smelly zoo animals nearby to spoil your appetite for breakfast.)
Another good thing is that the streets in this part of Karlsruhe have been somewhat pacified so there isn't much through traffic to make noise at night.
Otherwise it's just a perfectly normal hotel.
I booked through www.hrs.de and got a fairly reasonable price, but they say that if you book directly through the hotel's website you can save three euros per room and night, except on weekends.
The hotel is about 1.7 km from the city centre and 2.2 km from the palace. Everything is easy to reach on foot, by tram or by bicycle.
