We stayed here whilst visiting friends in Durlach. Superb hotel. Modern, clean, very friendly efficient staff. Rooms were comfortable and clean Breakfast was buffet style and catered for every taste with ample food regularly attended to keep fresh and plentiful Would definitely return. Attached to the de Vogel bar which is also worth a visit.

The hotel is nice and the staff are friendly. The breakfast is excellent. If you checkout early morning, they pack and give you the breakfast, if you inform them the previous day. Weekend breakfast starts only at 7:30 am and that needs to start earlier as during the weekdays. The hotel provides a bottle on arrival and departure. Will be...

We spent 3 nights there and were very comfortable. Lovely newer hotel with large bathroom and comfy bed. Right next to the bed were switches for all the lights and to work the blinds. The breakfast was by far the best we had during 10 days in Europe. The beer garden/restaurant attached to the hotel was wonderful as well, and...

Very good hotel, although it does not look as spectacular as the pictures might suggest. We booked a normal room for one night. Everything was fine. Breakfast was excellent, breakfast room is large enough for a quiet start of the day. Reception staff was extremely friendly, especially the morning thet we left. We did not need to use the hotel...

I have stayed at the main hotel before, with work. This time we were pointed down the road to the Kubis. Well, the room was amazing, luscious bed with scrumptious duvet (all my experiences of German hotels have the most delicious duvets........always singles tho, even if you have a double bed). Walk in shower, balcony for a smoke and good...

Stayed in Karlshruhe for 12 weeks and spent the last 2 in this hotel. By far the #1 hotel and #1 location. Durlach is a beautiful area which has plenty of history and has maintained the old feel to the area. Some really good local restaurants in the area and bars.
