Just minutes away from the main train station and the Cathedral. The location is fantastic as you can easily walk to all the attractions. Our room was cosy and very clean, we slept peacefully! The breakfast is amazing, in fact probably one of the best in all my travels! The staff are very friendly and helpful. It was a lovely... More

A small basic hotel located down a side street on the other side of the train station to the Dom. My single room was fairly small and so too was the new bathroom - but it had all that was required. However, no mini bar, no coffee station, no fan or air con for summer and three wooden shelves to... More

It was also used for an emergency/fire escape room? That was odd. The room was tidy, a bit outdated thoug. The bathroom was very , very... More

The staff was quite friendly and very helpful. The receptionist even helped me book a bus ticket to Berlin, saving me good money on the next portion of my trip. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the location was amazing. I loved the breakfast. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

We were glad we stayed here. The place is immaculate and stylish. The staff was very helpful and went the extra mile for us. The location is convenient to the city center but quiet on a side street. The breakfast was wonderful. On the down side, there is no AC and no fans. The shower was small and difficult to... More

The hotel is in the city centre and it is just a short walk to the Dome and the other attractions. Quality of the room is at the average. Breakfast is good but the attitude of the waitress is not. Besides, when we went to the hotel, a guest opened the door and told us to another hotel to check... More

Like others have said, this little hotel is very well situated to the Dom, and especially attractive if you are arriving or leaving by train; it is less than a five minute walk from the station. My perspective on this hotel has to begin with the fact that it was less than USD$100 in a major European city. There are,... More
