2/10 Poor

Never Again
The pictures are deceptive. The place is old and filthy dirty. The bathroom was literally so small that one could barely wipe. The bed was at best IKEA, and the mattress was so thin that you may as well have had no mattress at all. The wall paper in the dinning area looked like it was from the 1950ties. The worst place I have been to in decades. The high rating it has is a mystery to me and is not credible. Never again.

Friendly reception, comfortable bed
Friendly staff and reception. Comfortable bed including lovely duvet and pillows. Good breakfast buffet including freshly prepared waffles on request. Good location for all local amenities, restaurants and shops. Only a short walk to the Wurmberg cable car and plenty of walking opportunities. The hotel facilities are basic but the room we had on the second floor was a good size, friendly and very comfortable.
