Hotel Am Markt
Travel Blogs from Baden-Baden
Weather glorious again so took the funicular up to Mercury's Vista. Quite a ride and the view was spectacular. We could see about 15 villages in the valley below from the Mercury Tower. There were also huge samples of the variety of rocks found at Baden Baden, and they dated from 142 million to 750 million years old. After our return trip on the funicular we caught a little open tourist train and learnt some more ...
... the feel of the town - so many beautiful and huge trees giving an all over feeling of green, lots of flowers, a little river running through the town and of course the charm of the historic section. Baden Baden is the home of the thermal spas which were discovered by the Romans and we were lucky enough to stay in a hotel which had its ...
Weather glorious again - perfect for sightseeing. Made our way to Triberg to see the highest waterfall in Germany. The walk was beautiful (and quite a strenuous uphill climb in parts) but with lots of tourists, strange about that!! We had a quick look at the town, including a shop with 1,000 cuckoo clocks. We weren't tempted to buy one, ...
... dark passageway and found ourselves in a small stone grotto with a dozen or so people sitting on benches listening to a small jazz quartet. The piece ended, some announcement was made in German and everyone got up and filed out down another dim passageway. Like Alice following the White Rabbit, we attached ourselves to the end of the line and found ourselves walking through a long series of black-lit stone passages that ...
... always very calm about these things and assured me that what seemed impossible could in fact be done. He took the panniers off on the side of his bike closest to the wall, and with him doing the brunt of the work at the front of his bike and me pushing from behind, we started up what seemed to me to be an almost vertical incline. We got to the top, cursing and dripping with sweat, only to find the catwalk full of people - ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Am Markt Baden-Baden
Based on room comfort, this is a 5-star
As good as it gets for an inexpensive small hotel. I decided to have a look at the Am Markt based on remarks on this web site. I expected "decent" and got "outstanding." Double room was truly spacious and attractive and spotless and quiet. Reception was friendly and very helpful. The TV lounge was nicely furnished and comfortable and the wi-fi hotspot actually worked. In fact, wi-fi worked just fine in my room which was two floors above and on the opposite side of the hotel. The breakfast room and the food was of the highest standard. Convenient location. No spa facilities in hotel but it's a few steps from two public spas that should not be missed.
The breakfast room revealed most guests to be couples - some young - some older, various nationalities and neatly dressed. I hope to return and and will recommend this hotel with enthusiasm to clients (I am a travel agent).
Great Little Hotel.
We just returned from a wonderful vacation in Germany. All of us loved Baden - Baden and would like to return for a longer period of time. Hotel Am Markt is one of those little gems of a hotel that one loves to discover while on vacation. Super location ! We walked to everything, shops, casino, spas, etc.. Clean rooms, wonderful breakfast, my only little complaint is that I also agree with another review. I found that there was a little feeling of coldness from the hotel reception. They have a parking area for your cars but it is kept locked. Whenever you need your car they have to come outside and unlock the chain across the driveway. I felt that they were annoyed when we asked and we only asked once while we were there and then when we checked out. But other than that it is a wonderful hotel.And we had a very good stay there. Would stay there again.
Great little place
Lovely friendly place,really great bargain with the Spa tickets thrown in also.Rooms clean and bathrooms modern.The position of the hotel at the top of the town is a steep climb back up but it keeps you fit! Breakfasts were fantastic and staff very pleasant. Only downside was the churchbells..VERY loud and early,but take some good quality earplugs and you'll be fine. I would recommend anyone to stay at the hotel Am Markt.
Fine hotel, aloof staff
The hotel is conveniently located near the baths and the center of town. If walking from the bus stop, it is a bit of an uphill climb. The church bells from the neighboring church tended to wake us a bit earlier than we liked but that worked out for the best. The staff seemed curiously cold and aloof. Frankly, if it were not for the people working there, the hotel would have seemed pretty nice.
Great Value and Location
Comfortable rooms over a quiet square of 18th century buildings a two-minute walk from the pedestrian shopping streets. Superb breakfast served with silver-plated tea service included in price. (What a splendid contrast to the over-priced greasy breakfasts at the Ritz in Berlin the week before.) Bathroom was among the best designed and decorated we have seen. Right next door to the two big spas in town. Private parking next to the front door. Highly recommended.
As good as it gets!
Wonderful place to stay. Service and food was exceptional. Great location.
Comfortable place in a great town
I came to Baden Baden with the purpose of relaxation at the spas. This hotel is in a perfect location - despite the church bells that were noted in other reviews. The rooms are simple and clean. It met my need perfectly for one night. If I were to go for an extended stay, I would probably choose something a little more upscale, maybe on the river, but for €40, and a spa discount, you can't complain!
Hotel am Markt Stay
I stayed here for a couple of nights in late May, 2004. Our double room was bright and cozy (60 euros), and the window overlooked the church next to the hotel. The reception was friendly and the hotel was centrally located. The Friedrichsbad spa is also next to the hotel, and there are restaurants and shops just down the street. I will stay here again the next time that I visit this lovely city.
This is one of the friendliest places I ever stayed in Germany. The breakfast is delicious and often enriched by homemade marmelade. Also the two owners take great care in the well being of their guests. It is an absolute value you get. Can only recommend this, instead of staying at bigger anonymous expensive hotels.
This was our 2nd stay at the Hotel Am Markt. It is an excellent value, and the service, rooms and breakfast were great. Also, the 2 sisters who run the hotel speak some English and were most helpful.It is quite easy to walk to the middle of town from there, but there is also an hourly bus.The only problem for some would be climbing the stairs to your 2nd floor or 3rd floor room.
