“A great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

An overall OK hotel.
We had a nice small room, though somewhat dated (the bathroom especially). The room was quiet and clean - all you need for a one-night stay. The only downside are the pillows (paper-thin).
The breakfast really is as good as all the other reviewers write - a vast selection and good quality.
The old town is literally across the street, it's as close as you can get without actually living within its walls.

The hotel is just outside the city walls, There is just one street to cross and you are there. Warm welcome, nice room and wonderful breakfast. Lavish even by German standards, there was just about every possible thing you could possibly consider eating and quite a few you wouldn't even have thought of.
Excellent value for money, especially when you consider how close to the city centre this is, would definitely stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

The room was nice, big and comfortable double bed, TV, refrigerator, small desk, separate anteroom/lobby for luggage and small sofa. Bathroom very basic - shower, sink, toilet. Everything clean and in good condition. Baby bed was provided without extra cost. Breakfast was excelent, a lot of choise. The location is great (we traveled by car and we were happy to have a parking space at the hotel), few steps from the old city.

We had the room next to the elevator shaft and we could hear it every time it was in operation. But having a small child, we are not bothered with night noises anymore.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms next to the elevator shaft.

When we arrived, we got a warm and helpful reception. Checkin was quick. Then he carried our bags for us to the room, one flight up. There is an elevator. Our initial impression of the room was "oh my gd, what did we get into here?" The room is not spacious but by the next morning, we'd figured out how to make it work for us.
We grew to love it and would stay here again. The breakfast is fabulous, so many good and even healthful choices. So pleasant in the dining room too,
Also in a few days, we figured out where we really are and began to appreciate the proximity to good bus routes, U (underground) and especially the ease to walk to Old Town.
All on all, a delightful small hotel.

Room Tip: Splurge perhaps and ask for one of the larger rooms.

We stayed 3 nights at this delightful hotel breakfast was the stand out here the food and service excellent and the breakfast room itself has great ambience antique furniture and paintings,over all we rated it highly .We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the hotel car park the room was quiet spacious and spotlessly clean with a good comfortable bed and pillow.Taxi from the main train station is around 10 euro.The castle and old city are just across the road and there are plenty of reasonably priced places selling local Bavarian dishes.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in this quiet pleasant hotel just out of old city but close to castle and only a few minutes pleasant walk to centre of old town.We had a good sized comfortable room and bathroom had bath and shower. The staff were welcoming and friendly and most had good English.
What will stay in the memory for us was BREAKFAST!-superb with such a wide choice and first class quality
REALLY good value.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night while travelling home from Italy. It was a pleasant good value hotel just across the road from the Aldstat and castle. The rooms were clean and well equipped, except no kettle (which is fairly typical in Germany). The room was spacious and the bathroom good.
There was a lovely breakfast buffet, with a huge choice of savoury and sweet. Probably the best breakfast I have had in Germany.
I forgot to reserve a parking space and although we were advised that we could park in the adjacent streets for we, there were no spaces and we had to park in an underground car park on the Aldstat, which was a 10 minute walk away.
