Good business Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 4, 2009

This report refers to me staying at the Renaissance Hotel Karlsruhe in Februar 2009 during a business trip.

The Hotel is quite conveniently located on the Main Road entering Karlsruhe, not far from the City Centre and the Main Railway Terminal, both of which are located within a Radius of about 900m and has excellent connection to public transport.

The Hotel Lobby is furnished modern, but welcoming, as is the Bar and the Restaurant.

Check in was handled very quick and effective by very friendly, multilingual staff. The Rooms are on the smaller end of average size, fitted with all the amenities, like Mini Bar and Cable TV with Movie and Internet Facility, one has come to expect of a Hotel of this standard. The Bathroom, fitted with a Shower/bath combination, was of standard size and all the usual amenities where present.

The Hotel Bar is staffed by a very competent and very friendly Bartender, who served the requested drinks and above standard type “nibbles” in the form of very tasty flavoured Almonds and Nuts, with a smile, a joke and with total competence. As for the “nibbles” served, I may be permitted to add, that the method of serving those, was in such a way, as to ensure that you can help yourself, whilst reducing the contact with the content, thus reducing greatly the risk of cross contamination of the products for/from fellow guests.

As for Internet connectivity, the whole hotel is equipped with Wireless High Speed Internet, costing about 13 Euro per day, which can be charged against the room. Internet connection is fast and stable, but that is what one should be able to expect if one has to pay as much as that.

The In-house Restaurant, which also serves as the Breakfast Room, is also furnished quite modern, whilst still exhaling a cosy atmosphere. The food served is of excellent quality, parred with reasonable pricing, serving food that is centred around the theme of local produce and can be highly recommended.

The only negative remark I can make about this well run Hotels, is the fact that the Room cleaning service was a little too eager to commence work in the morning, by knocking on my door at about 08:30.

Ample Car Parking, which is charged by the hour, is incorporated into the Hotel, with direct lift access from the Car parking decks in the cellar to the Hotel Lobby.

As my stay in Karlsruhe was for business, I am not really qualified to give advise on the city itself.

Decent for the rate.

This was a hotel test for the upcoming meeting weekend in Karlsruhe. I had eaten here in the hotel before but never stayed. I wanted to check it out and know the area rather well. This honestly is a bit out of the way in town for many people looking to get out and have a good time but is very near all the places I used to go when I lived here. Cafe Wien is close. The Old Dublin (now Ein Stein) is also near.

We were in room 524. Nothing to write home about but for only 75 euros for the night we were happy to get a program extending Marriott stay out of this trip.

I would stay here again but might find something closer to Europlatz next time. This is about a 10-15 walk from it and there are closer if you wish.

Upscale and Worth It

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 9, 2006

The staff has been very accomodating to me since I arrived here and had no schedule, no clothes, nothing. I have been very grateful to the staff for their recommendations and their directions as it is easy to get lost driving almost anywhere in Germany.

Unique Quality: An incredible restaurant is attached. The bar is top notch. In room wireless internet is something that I consider to be a requirement these days, but it is amazing how many don't have it. These guys do. It is within walking distance of a lot of great shops, restaurants and museums.

Directions: It is best to take Highway 10 off of the main highway from Frankfurt (5) and this road takes you right to it.
