Where to begin? We stayed for 5 nights and the better we became acquainted with the hotel the more we discovered its plus side.
At first it seemed unprepossessing, situated in a side / back street with no imposing facade. This was an advantage being both central and quiet and also within reasonable walking distance of the station and near a tram stop.
We had a spacious room with both a double and a single bed. It is probably best described as simply furnished - all the basics are there although a little more drawer space would be helpful for other than an overnight stay, but it was not trying to impress, being without any pretension to luxury. The shower room was small but perfectly adequate and well-appointed. Both this and the room were spotlessly clean.
The real focus of the hotel was its attractive restaurant Vinothek Tiepolo with its excellent food and service. You must book a table, certainly in December, as it was fully booked every night , even on a Monday. There is also a wine bar in the cellar, offering an oustanding range of local wines.
The breakfast buffet offered a good choice and the hotel owners Herr and Frau Rink immediately offered an alternative for something one of us is allergic to. Both the owners, and also the staff, went out of their way to be helpful.
Stay in this hotel if you are looking for a good small modern hotel but not if you are looking for luxury. Be prepared to let it grow on you.
