It was the best equipped accommodation we have ever used, everything has been thought through. It is very stylish and immaculately clean. Reiner the charming owner met us and explained everything in perfect English. Baden Baden is a lovely city and this quality apartment is an ideal place to stay, especially if travelling by car. The secure underground parking is so reassuring, though it is a little tight if you have a larger car, but should be ok if you are careful.We will return to Baden Baden as we only had 4 nights there and there Is so much more of the city and the beautiful surrounding countryside to see. Reiner's apartment will be our first choice to stay

There is a small supermarket, bakery and a health food shop within five minutes walk. Gasthof Kreuz has an excellent menu and lovely garden.
