Hotel RIO Karlsruhe 4*

Hotel, Restaurant and conference rooms in the middle of Karlsruhe.

Welcome to the Hotel RIO Karlsruhe!

We welcome you to our privately run 4 star hotel in the heart of Karlsruhe.
With our location near the Mühlburger Tor, just 700 meters from the main shopping street, we offer. You the perfect mix of tranquility and city life. Culture enthusiasts will find the unique ZKM (Center for Art and Media) the Art Gallery, the urban gallery and much more in the immediate vicinity. If you’re more enthusiastic about fashion and style, you’ll get your money’s worth! We are only 5 minutes away by foot from the Postgalerie – a shopping mall with well-known brands such as Primark, TK Maxx and Decathlon. The larger shopping centre, the ECE (Ettlinger Tor shopping centre), can also be reached in just 15 minutes. There are many branded and selected specialist stores.
On the Kaiserstrasse will find you many beautiful boutiques and owner-managed shops. The best thing about it – you can save yourself the search for a parking space and just do everything on foot! Karlsruhe is not only a city of culture and shopping, but also a city of trade fairs and congresses! Thanks to our perfect connection to the motorway and public transport, you can reach the new Karlsruhe trade fair and the congress centre in just a few minutes.
We look forward to your visit!

We are open!

As of recently, we have been able to accommodate private travelers and tourists in addition to business travelers.

Due to the currently very changeable occupancy, our hotel bar will remain closed for the time being and our restaurant will only open when required. If our restaurant is closed during your stay, we would of course be happy to recommend a restaurant nearby.

Your and our health and safety are our top priority! We are closely following the developments around COVID-19 and we take your questions and concerns in this regard very seriously.


We look forward to your visit!
