          The Dom garage next door -- is it a secure/private/controlled (eg gate) facility please? Thanks

          Response from Cornelia H | Reviewed this property |
          To my knowledge this is a public garage (underground) . It is probably as secure as any public garage is in a German city. Please contact the hotel for further details.
