Nice little hotell on a quiet street close to the baths. The staff is really friendly and helpful in every way! The rooms are well-kept and very clean. The breakfast room is cute and the buffet is fresh and the staff attentive. Really lovely stay!

Within an 8-minute walk to the baths, this place served our family well for a one night stay in Baden-Baden. It is up in the hilly part of town, close to a few nice restaurants and a great coffee shop around the corner. Its a little aged, but still clean and serves well enough. It seems that there once was...

Dear Guest, thank you for your review, albeit I guess your review is not about us. Rathausglöckel is located EXACTLY 360 feet or 180 meters from the "furtherst" Caracalla Thermal bath. Please check on google maps. It is a 2-3 minute walk to the baths at the most. I have searched my records and we did not have a family...

When you travel a fair amount you sooner or later will come across a hotel that makes a lot of empty promised and you end up being thoroughly disappointed. I knew nothing about this place, but could tell it is a quality outfit the minute I was greeted by the receptionist(s). The hotel is by no means fancy, but makes...
