August 2018

Nice room, large bathroom. Extremely conveniently located at the railway station, you just have to cross the street. Good and big British breakfast. Since we had a room to the side no disturbing noise by trains. Only in the morning the speakers of the train announcements were a bit noisy.

If you have a lot of luggage the missing elevator is disturbing. More critical is the missing air-conditioning combined with the inability to open the windows. Even on a cool day the rooms were quite hot.
