              Helpful staff with good English, a rarity in Germany outside major cities. Comfortable beds with ample supply of pillows. Excellent breakfast with a variety of foods. Walkable from city core. Quiet location, an important factor.

              Breakfast was wonderful. Good choice large buffet. Eggs cooked to order. Location to downtown, shops and pubs excellent.

              Reception persons could be more friendly.

            • Older travelers

              Luxury hotel a short walk from picturesque town centre . Easy drive from autobahn, hotel has it's own secure underground car park. Enormous room comfortable beds and luxurious bathroom with robes and slippers. The hotel is a palace (literally) and the staff at reception could not have been more friendly and helpful. I recommend this hotel very highly and it's definitely worth paying for a superior room.

              This hotel has no faults at all, I cannot find anything negative to say
