Reviewed 26 December 2017

- The location of this hotel is great, it's right opposite to the Karlsplatz market, and within minutes' walk to the Old Town and U-Bahn station (Benrather Strass).
- The breakfast was great, a good variety of food - bread, cold cut and cheese, warm food, cereal, yogurt, fruits etc. Coffee / tea / juices and freshly pressed orange juice too. (Because of the good breakfast, I did not have room to sample the delicious-looking food sold at the market nearby... )
- Friendly staff.
- clean and comfortable.
- It would be better if the curtains can black-out the sunlight properly, especially in the summer. (I'm particularly sensitive to sunlight and I wished I brought my eye-mask with me...)

Stayed at Das Carls Hotel for 1 night to attend the Christmas markets. Location is great – 7 mins walk to the Rathaus Market. The room was clean, and bed was comfortable. The WIFI quality was excellent allowing for streaming and the breakfast was good. Reception were friendly and overall the short stay was very pleasant. In summary good hotel, great location, fair price and would recommend

Room Tip: If you want real quiet choose a room on the higher floors

Location is good - easy walk to alstadt. The breakfast is very nice. There is a market opposite the hotel. Complimentary water bottle is good. The hotel staff were good and provided directions. The manager is never available to talk to. The bar area is nice and small - good to sit before going to the room. There is a train station to the right - few steps from the hotel. There are taxi's if you walk across the street to other side of the market. There is heater but never used it. I just slept for the night and stayed out most of the time.

The 6th floor room I stayed is a store room under stairs converted to hotel room. Paid couple of hundred dollars for it. The high price was a goof up by expedia and after spending 140 minutes in the lobby talking to expedia at 1 euro per min price. Not worth the money as I spent 400+ for one night including the price, international phone cost etc. This could have been resolved by the hotel very easily. Bathroom is very small - arms will hit the wall. The bathroom door is difficult to close so water may leak out of the shower. The room is good with a bed and TV. Only half the channels or basic channels will come. TV is a monitor on the table. If you put two suitcases on the floor in the room, then you won't be able to walk around.

It is good if you don't stay in the hotel if you use it for coming to sleep at night. I won't stay here at the price I paid. I don't think the hotel should rent this as a room but instead change it to storage. I will probably stay at other hotels and come in cab to old town.

Room Tip: Dont' choose room 605.

A very enjoyable three night stay at the Carathotel. The staff were all pleasant but I would particularly mention the young female receptionist wearing spectacles (apologies for not getting your name) who was delightful, knowledgable and spoke better English than most native speakers. The hotel is well situated close to the Altstadt and an easy stroll from the Rheinufer. However it is on a busy street opposite a market and we were glad that we had spent a little extra for a room at the back overlooking the inner courtyard. The room itself was maybe a little small for a "superior" room but it was comfortable and clean. Overall a very good experience and well recommended.

good location . good breakfast. staff is helpful . I ordered single room for 2 nights. bed was not comfortable . the hotel need some renovation . the life is old fashioned. the decor of the hotel is out dated. overall average hotel suits a 3 star hotel more the 4 star.
Breakfast was excellent and the location of the hotel is so good .
