This is a very nice hotel in a historic building in the center of the old part of the city with a friendly staff. Our rom was very large, clean, and quiet. It had a large desk with a comfortable chair (NOT typical is so many hotels). The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very large with a soaking tub, vanity area with stool, separate toilet, and walk-in shower. The toiletries were nice and there was a hair dryer and magnified mirror. In the bedroom, there was a safe, kettle for hot water, coffee maker, robe, and slippers.
Breakfast was not included but a continental breakfast was available for 8 EUR. There were also coffee, tea, and pastries available to buy in the lobby bar.
Two negatives: the free wifi was terrible. They told my husband they were having router problems. They don't have a business center but they let him use their computer to check email. The other problem is the shower which is large and bright but it leaks water all over the bathroom floor because the shower floor and the bathroom floor are the same height.
Go to the Tourist Info center to get a map to follow the silver swishes in the sidewalk. Each point of interest has a blue sign with info in both German and English.
Also, there are cafes close that serve breakfast for about 6 EUR
