This is one classy place. Feather comforters and pillows. Sauna and pool. Location near train station, right on the Airliner bus route from Frankfurt Airport. Windows that open, if you want them to. Currency exchange at nice rates.
And the FOOD. This is the most glorious breakfast buffet I've ever seen. There had to be 30 kinds of meat, that looked like lunch meat, but transcended far above in taste. 3 kinds of liverwurst. 4 kinds of fish - lox, herring, and two I didn't recognize but loved none the less. Cheeses. Butter in logs (salted or unsalted) to carve off what you wanted.
And Breads. Sooooo many breads. I counted 15 one day, not counting pastries. The pretzel rolls stole my heart, but the hearty ryes were not far behind. Most of these, you carve your own slice.
Along with these were cereals and serving bowls of yogurts and granolas; 10 jams and 3 kinds of honey; weiners and beans and soup and boiled eggs and pickles and mustards. And hot tea (with tiny personal tea pots) and juices, and a lovely server who made it clear that "coffee" translates just fine.
A lovely spread, a lovely room. Warning: if you cannot sleep with the sound of an occasional train, be sure to mention that when you book your room. I found the sound very comforting, but some did not.
ask if you do not want train sounds!
