We really enjoyed our stay in Room 7 with balconies - and particularly the spectacular views towards the hillside. We found the hotel very easily with the satnav, and off-street parking was available just outside the entrance, which is controlled with CCTV. (Navigation and parking become much more of an issue just a few hundred metres further into the town). The staff made us feel very welcome and were ready with maps and information about K.V. The hotel is located on a road just above the centre. I was accompanied by my 88 year old mother who managed the walk to and from the lift that operates into the centre. The first night we ate on the bridge at the Embassy - rave reviews about this hotel meant we nearly stayed at this hotel, but were glad we didn't as the location (and, we later realized the quality of rooms) of the Ontario, in our view, far surpassed the hotels just that bit further into town. The restaurant of the Embassy comes highly recommended and it was charming to sit in the evening sun on the bridge looking toward the Grand Hotel Pupp, but sadly the food was disappointing and the waiter was rather cocky in presuming that our change (some 25%) was his tip. After a six hour drive from Berlin, I didn't have the energy to remonstrate. Breakfast at the Ontario was fine and more than adequate but not exciting. For our second night in K.V., we had to move hotels as the Ontario was overbooked (I knew this at the time of booking but thought it looked so charming - and easy to locate) that I didn't mind. Night 2 was spent at the Romance Puskin - a stone's throw down the hill. It was more expensive but not nearly as nice as the Ontario - room much smaller, furnishings much poorer, shabby - but not as in shabby chic - view half as nice, and a charge for parking. Even if we were not comparing, the Ontario sitting impressively atop the hill, with its stylish room furnishings and views takes a lot of beating.
