This was our second stay in the Monasterium, and we were not disappointed either. It is a former monastery (19th c) transformed into a hotel, and the rooms are all huge. It is just fun to walk around, stop by in the former chapel, maybe have a drink in their bar, sit in the lovely and quiet garden, and enjoy your big room. Reception clerks all very nice and efficient. There are elevators to the respective wings. Beds nice, all the relevant furniture there,though mostly dated, plus a flat tv. Wifi (free) works mostly, but you have to position yourself properly. At times I had to go out to the huge hallway and pick up the reception there. Bathroom large and nice. The best, however, is their breakfast. I can't recall another hotel with such a splendid buffet, including champagne. The meats and sausages are fantastic, the scrambled egg was perfect; breads marvelous, etc. The only thing I would recommend to the hotel is to put up a better sign outside; the hotel is hard to find, even when you stand right in front. Our tour bus could drive down the street and park,, but traffic is difficult. Parking even for cars is 15 Euros/day; bus had to park very far away.
