The Hotel Deutscher Kaiser is a hotel near the city center of Baden-Baden, which was rated with 3 stars by the German hotel and gastronomy organisation DEHOGA. It is located between Augustaplatz and Leopoldsplatz in a low traffic hotel area, just a few meters away of the Congress Center, the Museum Mile, the Kurhaus and the Theater. It is run by the family Huber in the second generation.
In 1836 a first house was erected at the location of today's Hotel Deutscher Kaiser. Back then the house offered 13 rooms for guests and a simple tavern with the name "Fortuna". After the victorious war against France 1870/71 the house was renamed to "Zum Deutschen Kaiser" and was granted a full concession.
In 1960 the family Huber took over the house and accomplished to raise its quality to the requested standard at that time. The economical success made it possible to tear down the 150 years old building in 1980 and replace it by completly new one. In March 1982 the new Hotel Deutscher Kaiser opened, now in the second generation.
Due to confusions with the Hotel Deutscher Kaiser in the Lichtentaler Hauptstraße sometimes the addition "im Centrum" (in the center) was added.
