Ok typical American style hotel and well situated downtown. Large lobby, bar and restaurant, nice big room. But the mystery is how they can stay in business with such a poor Wi Fi system? It is ponderous to connect, trips out and extremely slow. Penny pinching on band width is no good at all for the business traveller.

Great location, right next to many tram lines and restaurants including the old town. I was very unhappy with my vegan burger - too salty and greasy... hopefully it was just a 1-off bad day and not the norm for their restaurant.

Spacious rooms. Very efficient front desk and general service. Good breakfast. Only let down is wi-fi which is not reliable in bar and restaurant areas. Reasonable price. Close to city centre and plenty of restaurants.

Though a little expensive, this is a very comfortable classic-style hotel. It has a slightly dated interior, but the beds are very good and the service is excellent. I especially recommend the delicious hotel breakfast, the hotel cocktail bar and the burgers available there for dinner. They are top quality and reasonably priced.

I stayed for four nights. I debated whether to review this hotel as Average or Poor. I think the amenities are slightly below average. The elevator doesn't stop aligned properly with the floor, the room furniture, beds, curtains, etc. are dated and old. My shower worked but I had to do some minor repair on the detachable shower head to...

Stayed here for a few nights to explore the area. Hotel good location within walking distance of everything. Room very comfortable. Breakfast good. Bar area nice. Only negative was the air conditioning was not working properly and the rooms were too hot. It was a pity because everything else was great!

Attended a conference at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and walked every day, sometimes right past the main castle in town. The hotel is also right on tram lines, which means if anything is too far of a walk it would be easy to tram there. We liked this hotel and they did a nice job of accommodating our family of...

I was in Karlsruhe to attend a conference at KIT, traveling with my wife, who is in a wheelchair. The Achat Plaza is well located--short walk to KIT, short walk to Marketplatz and the Schloss, tram station out front. The room was typical for Europe, small but quite adequate. We had a room with accessible shower, next to the elevator...
