April 2015

Aufgrund von Wartungsarbeiten wurde uns nach einem Tag ein anderes Zimmer angeboten: Das neue Zimmer war deutlich größer, mit Sitzecke und Badewanne. Sehr sauber, ruhig und angenehm. Zudem wurde uns ein Frühstück angeboten. Dieses war umfangreich und sehr lecker inklusive verschiedenem Räucherfisch, feinem Käse, Wurst, Obstkorb, etc. Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis: gut.

Wir hatten ursprünglich ein sehr kleines Zimmer gebucht. Darin fühlte man sich tatsächlich etwas beengt. Ansonsten war das Zimmer in Ordnung und sauber.

September 2009

Good location and not too expensive. Comfortable, if basic, room. A good, low budget hotel close to the 'action'.

A little expensive for what it is but we booked late and had no choice. The walls are thin so a long sleep in the morning is not an option here (we had a screaming baby in the next room and could hear the TV from across the hall).

I and the company of 5 had a warm welcome and clean rooms. We appreciated our one-night with you. Sincerely, B. Terracin

It is loud due to the pavement in front of the hotel. That, however, is not something the hotel is responsible for.
