I stayed in this Hotel for short time. Room was good, good staff, Food OK. But it is better than other small Hotel such as Pension Konigsturm etc. One of my friend stayed there, only to pay up additional surprize charges !! Staff will also help you to get a taxi here.

We've been coming since the early 90's and I think they bathrooms are still the same. Our room was spacious and breakfast was nice. It did not...

convenient for the main square and the many local bars and restaurants but looking a bit tired in places. the bathrooms need a refit, shower screens etc and the hair dryer was probably all the rage in the 1950s LOL! Breakfast was excellent though and rooms were comfortable enough, would use again.

I stay at this hotel on a regular basis and am never disappointed. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the beds are really comfortable. The staff are so accommodating - its a home from home. The breakfast is varied and of good quality, really sets me up for the day.
