From the minute I arrived at the Novotel till the minute I left, the entire staff treated me like royalty and did everything they could to make my stay for 4 nights over Easter as enjoyable as possible while I was playing in the Grenke Open chess tournament across the square in the Schwarzwaldhalle with over 1,200 players including Magnus...

I stayed at the executive business room. Minibar was included which was a pleasant surprise. Location - close to the main shopping mall and to city center - 7-10 mins walking. Note that during my visit the city is working on a new railway which made it a bit un accessible. Rooms - a bit outdated in my opinion. Needs...

We loved staying at this hotel, and highly recommend it. The staff was always cheerful, friendly and always helpful. The room was very quiet, comfortable and clean, lighting was great and the beds were just right. Parking was also very convenient, as it was on the lower level. They even have airport-style luggage carts (came in so handy), which was...

I shared a room at this hotel with a friend while travelling. Seems most hotels in Germany don't offer rooms with 2 double beds so we had an oversized room where the king bed had been split in 2 with just a small space in between. It was amusing but OK for our short stay. We found the service in...

My three nights in this business hotel, located midway between the central station and the city, were as expected. The staff was very friendly and supportive. I arrived at eleven in the morning, four hours before the official check-in time, and I could immediately occupy my room. A big plus for the hotel. My executive room in the fifth floor...

Only stayed here for one night but the hotel left a good impression on me and i will definitely stay here again if I am in town again. Internet is free and good speed - breakfast is good. I didnt use the gym but i am told by others who used it that the gym and sauna are very good.

From 1992-1996, I was stationed in Karlsruhe with the US Army. Returning after 20 years had me excited and curious. What's changed .... what's the same. Lots of things going on in your head. The last thing you need in a situation like this is to have accommodation issues. Lucky for us, within minutes of arriving, any fear of this...
