I'm guessing this is one of the older hotels, but I still enjoyed my stay. The doors are a little thin, for which reason they installed a second door, so it was more or less quiet aside from the occasional screaming child, which not even the best hotels can get rid of. We even had a Christmas tree.

Fantastic breakfast and worth it for the convenience!

Beautifully decorated and a very well located hotel. This hotel served a delicious breakfast and was exceptionally child friendly. The decor was delightful and the rooms had bunk beds which was a highlight for our children. The park was in very close proximity. Lovely stay!

Just come back from a 1 night stay at Europa Parc. stayed at the El Andaluz hotel which for a big resort hotel was way better than we were expecting. Upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite which for 40 euros seemed good value at gave us loads more space. Cannot fault the room other than there was no tea/coffee facilities but other than that it was perfect. Service in the hotel was superb with very friendly staff who at full breakfast with a huge choice from heathly stuff to the full English!!!! As for the park itself I have to say that having been to eurodisney, disneyland and disneyworld the is by far the best with some great rides friendly multilingual staff at reasonably prices food. Perhaps it doesnt have the magic of disneyworld but the fack that everthing is in one area and there are numerious chioces of attractions for kids of all ages. Give this place a try, you wont regret it.

We stayed at the hotel with a group of friends for one night and also had dinner at one of the restaurants. The hotel and room looked nicely in theme decorated, also staff was very friendly.
Unfortunately, the mattresses felt old and we were sinking in badly, plus our room was near the elevator which was quite nosy. So although first impression was fine, we didn’t quite get a good night rest at all. Which one kind of needs after a long day at the park..
Also, we had a dinner reservation and had to wait a long time in line (with little kids) to get seated. In the morning there was a fire alarm, we didn’t really realize it on time. Apparently some people went outside, others didn’t (like us) and there was no information given by hotel staff. Overall these aspects didn’t seem quite organized from the hotel side.
So we had a bit of a mixed experience and especially when looking at value for money I wouldn’t come back :(

Large queue for check in and check out, over charged and itemisation not provided, then denied it and ignored my follow up emails.

Hotel is crowded with random items that are a bit tacky, theming is very odd in and around the places. Rooms are cold and tired, especially mattress on the bunk beds. Rooms feel more like prisons with dark colours and hard floors. Sleep quality is poor due to constant running of fountains in the main quad area.

Shower and bathroom are nice.

Breakfast was chaos, food running out and not replenished quickly without having to ask the limited staff they have, areas too small for people to wait for toast etc. adequate selection of food and quality ok.

Access to europa park is good however still expect to queue to get in. The extra time you get in the park doesn’t really make much difference to queue times and only a few are open.

Not a welcoming hotel and customer service during and after was poor. I wouldn’t recommend or return.

I have a hectic travel schedule. I travel domestically in the US and internationally to Europe several times each quarter. I was in Rust for World Hosting Days, which is a major conference and stayed at the Hotel El Andaluz. I wasn't expecting much when I booked the hotel I just wanted a clean room, internet access so I could work and a hot shower. I got none of these. The hotel told me to wait for internet, wait for hot water and wait for maid service. Seriously, none came. I was surprised that an event of over 4,000 people would support a hotel that put its high-end sponsors in a hotel that did not offer even hot water. We will not be back. We will not participate again. We will not recommend to anyone. There are too many opportunities in Europe and other countries with beautiful places and people to waste time at this event.

Enjoyed a one night stop over at the 4 star rated El Andaluz Hotel, part of the Europa Park Complex. High standard authentic spanish decor throughout, rooms very spacious and bunk beds for the kids.

Kids pool in Castillo Alcazar complex, small size but adequate outdoor pool in El Alcazar. Quality breakfast buffet served in the themed restaurants, all staff were very attentative at all times. A kids amiusement arcade and play area, park of the Europa Park stays open to hotel guests.

One advantage of staying here is that you get to go in the park half hour early before it opens to the public at 08:30. The park itself is beautifully landscaped and squeaky clean with a variety of rides to suit all ages.

All in all, I consider the standard of these hotels to be much superior compared to the Disney Paris hotels which I stayed in several years ago.

Avoid arriving at the park around 10am, cars were tailing back for miles as we were leaving the next day.

The 4 start superior Colloseo Hotel acorss the road is also a good choice to stay.

This holiday was booked as a three day/two night stay to surprise my family who (incidentally) are all adults! Despite this, having read many reviews, I decided that the comparison with Disneyland was over. I decided to leave the French-fries, hot dogs and unjustifiably long cues behind and head to Rust for a new experience.

On arrival in the car we could see what was to be our hotel towering above everything else as it dominated the skyline. I felt like a little child at Christmas and adrenaline was flowing round my body with all the excitement in me as I raced around trying to piece together parking and rooms etc. Checking-in (considering the time of year was easy) we walked to the desk, gave them our name and handed us the key while a porter stacked our cases which were to later make it to our room.

I was aware that we had booked a suite but didn't realize that we had been given the Presidential Suite "KARL V" which sat in its own key guarded private corridor on the top floor with some other top-end suites. The suite was at the far end of the corridor like something out of a fantasy with a big door and sign above reading "Karl V". Stepping into the suite we were greeted with a stunning mock old Spanish style castle stuff made of dreams. The suite consisted of five rooms. A bathroom, a king bedroom with balcony, a sitting area, a second bedroom with bunk beds and two recessed sitting areas in bay windows and a tower room on the second floor with a king bed and equally as impressive views which you can see from the photos that I have taken.

The park will be reviewed in the attractions section soon but for now I will move onto the hotel services. The pool was very large and although it was mostly filled with children, there was a time towards the end of the day when it was a little quieter. Next to the pool were various tables for drinking which was supplied by a very well stocked and well waited bar.

The evening and morning buffets were off an incredibly high standard and ranging from Italian to German and Austrian. It hit the spot exactly where you wanted it to after a day of running round the park like a moron with a truly reasonable price. The food was constantly fresh, turned over and served by chefs who you really felt safe that knew what they were doing. After this, my brothers and I walked over to the Hotel Colosseum which is also a lovely hotel and had some drinks on the top floor bar which overlooks the mock Italianate courtyard and fountain. We proceeded to the bar outside the door to our suite which was the top floor of the Castillo Alcazar and had the feel of a private members club and afforded truly spectacular views of all angles to the park and the forest area beyond.

This hotel was exceptionally themed as only the Germans know how and tip top clean and I cannot rave about this hotel enough. Do try and shell out a few extra bucks for the Karl V suite because you could share it with 6 adults anyway, so when you have divided it all, you see it is rather reasonable and in fact better value than other rooms.

All I can say after this review that has brought back all the magical memories of an amazing place to my mind is go there now and stay in this hotel. You will not be disappointed and neither will your wallet, a beautiful place that beats the socks of other European renowned theme parks by a long shot.

Thank you for reading this article and I hope it has been helpful to you in making your decision to visit.

I had the chance to visit Europa Park and Hotel Al Andaluz for free this month, after getting lucky with a website offer. It all seemed too good to be true at first, but the whole package came together perfectly.

The hotel is located directly next to Europa Park, and has it's own entrance to the theme park. Check-in was easy, as the majority of the hotel staff can speak good English. Naturally they also have their native German toungue, and also a wide number speak French.

We got lucky as we were assigned a (small) suite on the fourth floor...the only air conditioned floor! Although the weather wasn't fantastic, I couldn't imagine staying here without air conditioning.

We stayed in a small, double occupancy suite. The room was comfortable, with tiled flooring throughout, and had a lockable wardrobe. The bathroom was a fair size, and was spotless.

The hotel is situated in a conservation area, so all the doors which open onto the juliet balcony are fitted with motorised insect screens. Although I must say, I never encountered a problem with insects or mosquitoes during my stay. The only creature that seemed to be around in high numbers was the wasp.

Breakfast was the usual buffet style, the hot and cold selection was ok, but it was nothing special, especially for a four star hotel. One thing that did impress me at breakfast was the selection of about 10-12 different teas, in bag and leaf form.

The ground floor bar (El Circo) is cozy, and is non-smoking inside. We spent some of our time in Castillo Alcazar's Bar Buena Vista, which is situated behind a huge Iron door on the top floor of Castillo Alcazar. This bar boasts views across Europa Park, and across the Black Forest. This bar was laid back, and had an exclusive feel to it. We spent most of our bar time across the road in Hotel Colosseo's top floor bar, which had a more lively, yet still laid back feeling to it!

All staff were friendly and helpful, but my only complaint would be that the internet access in the hotel lobby is not pay as you go. It costs €7.50 per day. This seemed a little steep to send one email! Would definitely recommend this hotel and resort though!

Very beautiful hotel with wonderful location, immediate access to the park. The breakfast buffet included is fantastic. If you are a NON smoker, do no stay at this hotel. You are not allowed to smoke in the rooms, so everyone ( and most Germans smoke) sit out side in the open hall way and smoke, and talk very loud until all hours of the night.
