We were up on the top floor -- 3rd floor if you're European, 4th if you're North American -- which has very basic rooms: there is a sink in the room, but the toilet and shower room are shared with the rest of the floor (you can lock the door to the shower, there is privacy and it's all quite...

We stayed at Zum Schwaenlein during the last week of May 2014 for 4 nights. This is a small one star hotel with a very typical look to it. There has not been much if any change in the hotel interiors for many years now, I know as I have been staying here since 2002. The room we had was... More

On the + side : Central location. Good breakfast for the price. Quiet (although in a night life neighbourhood, but we were in january). Rooms, quite small but neat and clean. The bed could be more confortable though. On the - side : How to say ? A hotel should either be opend or closed. Not something inbetween. Or at... More

Sorry, but it must be a misunderstanding! Our rooms come in three different categories. This 28,- and 48,- EUR (special rates, normaly it is 30,- and 50,- EUR) rooms are attic rooms, situated in the 3. floor, with washbasin only / sharing shower and toilet, for three people.`'Your' rooms - for four people - were situated in the 1. floor,...

We stayed in this guesthouse for one night in December. The room was typical of many European guest houses. We had 2 adults and 2 kids, but only needed a place to sleep so it was more than adequate. The owners were exceptional though. We came in late and that was not a problem. The exceptional thing was that the... More

My husband and I stayed here for a short weekend and we both disliked our choice of B&B. The beds were uncomfortable, when i requested some new towels the guy told me that it was not the Hilton. Then in the restaurant (which is also run by the guesthouse owners) we were treated in a very rude way by one... More

We booked this Pension at rather a last minute - and were so pleasantly surprised by the accommodation. The Pension has been upgraded, rooms compact but suited us fine, sound proof windows, little TV, and gasthof adjacent. Upon arriving rather late in the afternoon, we enjoyed a superb meal at the gasthof, left our luggage and went our to explore... More

This guesthouse turned out to be a good value of money, having a great location, especially for those who plan also to visit by train nearby cities and towns, still it is very close to the city center. I know there are rooms without bathroom, we had kind of the most expensive one and it was quite comfy, even if... More

The hotel is situated in the city center, just by the main railway station. Clean with friendly staff. Because of place is quite noisy but since I am used to travel with earplugs it wasn't really problem. Breakfast are buffet style, with choise of chease and ham and salami, breakfast cereals, jams. Coffe, tea, orange juice, water.

Schwaenlein's location coudln't be better but things ended there. the help was somewhat unfriendly. When the Internet didn't work (I asked repeatedly before taking the room if it worked well since I had to have it for my business endeavors there), I just got a shrug and was told the owner was away and unreachable and they couldn't reboot since...
