We has a front room, because of the railway view, perhaps a little noisy (NOT the trains, but the main road is busy from very early to very late) Room was simple, but comfortable, with a good bathroom, and excellent heating, which we could control to our liking. The dining room is pleasant, my wife did not believe that you... More

Have a railway room at the front and watch the engines! You are right there!! You can see them being filled up with coal and water and having the boiler raked out. Maybe some smoke blows in your face or the engines shoot steam in the night - but this is what you should be at the hotel for! There... More

We stayed at the Hotel Altora for 4 nights during April 2013 and found the hotel to be fine. We had one of the Railway Rooms with a view to the steam shunting yard across the road, which is great for railway enthusiasts. The room was good, though lacking in adequate shower gels/shampoos, and breakfast was OK if not exciting.... More

A friendly small hotel in the lovely town of Wernigerode. Friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was reasonable, but make you bring shower gel as only one small sachet was provided daily. I would definitely stay again.

Recently returned from a holiday which included 5 nights at the Hotel Altora and going by some of the previous comments I wonder if I stayed at the same hotel. We had the Railway Room which was a very spacious room overlooking the locomotive depot where we could watch the engines being coaled and watered. The room itself was well... More

Booked in for three nights, but had to leave after the first one as we were having difficulty breathing, due to the steam engines giving out steam and dirty smoke. It was exceptionally hot and there was no air conditioning, so we had to open the windows but the air quality that came in from the steam trains was appalling.... More

Although we were not staying at the Hotel Altora, we used the restaurant twice during our visit to Wernigerode. The first night we ate there, we each ordered a schnitzel, and when it came on a plate 18 inches across and full of food, one meal would have been more than enough for two. The quality was average and the... More
