Exceptional 10.0
True luxury in the heart of town.
The Excelsior Hotel Ernst am Don is a true luxury hotel in every sense of the word. It is probably one of the top 3 hotels we've ever stayed in after many years of traveling. The rooms, public areas and restaurants exude elegance in every facet. Its location cannot be excelled being immediately adjacent to the Cathedral and main Railway Station. It doesn't get any better than this.
