      Bedroom furniture rather old; unbelievably there was no glass or beaker in the room at all: Corona virus? But fair value for money.

      Convenient to train station but not town center

      The hotel is close to the train station and next to the old Orangerie. However it is a15-20 minute walk to the center of town. There is only one restaurant in the neighborhood, but the hotel restaurant is fairly good. The rooms need electrical outlets accessible for charging cell phones.

      4 night trip, Aug. 25, 2021

      Verified guest review

    • 2.0.Poor


      Der Empfang am Samstag abend war kurz angebunden und nicht freundlich. Uns wurde keine Frühstückszeit genannt, obwohl wir Frühstück gebucht hatten. In den Zimmern lösen sich Tapeten von der Wand. In der Dusche konnte man nur mit dem Regenwasserduschkopf duschen, die Handbrause konnte nicht benutzt werden (defekt) und auch die Halterung dafür war defekt. Es gab keine Becher zum Zähneputzen oder um etwas im Zimmer zu trinken, auch keine Einwegbecher. Das Frühstück war gut besucht, aber das Personal war zu wenig oder zu langsam: ständig waren die Behälter leer, wurden nur sehr schleppend aufgefüllt. Die Tische wurden gar nicht oder sehr schleppend abgeräumt. Zumindest zum Frühstück war das Personal aber freundlich. Ansonsten waren wir sehr enttäuscht.

      Waren schon das 2.Mal hier. Die Lage des Hotels ist super. Das Preis /Leistungsverhältnis ist okay. An der Einrichtung der Zimmer muss sehr viel gemacht werden, um diesen Preis zu rechtfertigen. Alles in allem ein sehr schönes Wochenende mit gutem Frühstück.

    • 6.0.Good

      Mäßig begeistert

      Das Hotel ist OK aber den Preis nicht wert. Alles sauber aber das Zimmerinventar hat die besten Zeiten hinter sich. Bei 90€ stimmt die Preis Leistung einfach nicht. Größte Frechheit war das Abendessen. Mäßig gute Pizza 14,50€ und ein Bier 5€. Hier wird die Corona Situation und die Tatsache, dass Buisnessgäste warmes essen haben wollen ausgenutzt. Schade.
