The Landhaus Kossel promised us a suite with living room, bedroom, kitchen and balcony, so my wife and I were expecting a sort of luxury hotel in the country. But that's not exactly what it turned out to be.
The first impression was the powerful smell from the large piles of manure by the cow-barn next to the front door. Second impression was the bell – the large loud bell - in the church across the street, which banged at length every fifteen minutes. As we found out next morning, the longest and loudest banging is at 6 am.
Inside, we were led up three or four flights of stairs to the “suite” which did indeed include kitchen, balcony, a large dining/ living room and several rooms with beds in them. Sort of like a dormitory or barracks, except that's not being fair to dormitories and barracks. For example, the info sheet in the room included the following item (my rough translation): “A start-packet of toilet paper, coffee filters, etc, is provided for free; if you need more, we will be glad to sell it to you.” Neither my college dormitory nor my army barracks charged me for toilet paper. Actually, this place is most like a youth hostel, except that it costs more.
They serve a typical German breakfast – bread, cold cuts and yoghurt, coffee, tea and juice – which we tried the first morning. It was good, but not worth 12 euros per person.
We had booked for a week, but tried to check out after the first night, and the first early wake-up by the six a.m. bells. But the landlady threatened to charge the entire week to the credit card we had reserved with, and we found the other nearby hotels were full up. So we stayed out our week. When we got used to it, it wasn't so bad.
But look ouf for the loud noises, strong odors, and paying for toilet paper.
