This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in on this trip to Europe. The hotel is located on a quiet residential side street and has parking. I really don't understand how they call it a bed and breakfast since there everything is identical rooms with their own bath.
The owner is very friendly and goes way beyond the normal "helpful" at a hotel. The food at breakfast was not just good but artful with each serving being carefully prepared and beautifully displayed. The "artful" carries over in the decor of the rooms which could only be called modern.
Everything was perfect at this hotel and it deserves 5 starts (which I rarely give). The only negative I can think of is that it is far from the city center and thus there are few-to-no restaurants nearby, so, if you do not have a car, it is difficult to get dinner. The owner was very gracious in making reservations for me at a restaurant she thought I would enjoy and arranging taxis both ways.
