Don't be late otherwise you are on rhe streets! My flight was delayed and on arrival at 9pm hotel was I darkness. After 20 minutes of calling eventually answered to tell me very bluntly my room was gone to another guest and he had no interest in my being on the pavement in the rain at 9.30pm.

Excellent facility, Very nice throughout. Didn't have time to visit bar area but this looked like fun. Staff excellent. area of nice small shops and a few restaurants.

A bit of a walk to central area, however, this made the location much quieter.

Wonderful stay. It started with being greeted by Carsten who immediately made us feel welcome. We found our room to be charming/amusing and very nicely done // the room faced the street and they were prepared for steet noise by having ear plugs near the bed - we did not need them. The rooms are not large but they are well laid out. Breakfast was excellent and I loved being able to have a freshly boiled egg. At breakfast we met Rene - tall, charming and very welcoming. He explained the name of the hotel and the theme. Go there and ask him. As you see in the other reviews, the location could not be better. We were here for just one night and needed to be close to the train station. I would certainly stay here again!
