The owner now owns 3 accomodation locations. We stayed at the place at Von-Freyberg street.
We met the owner at his accomodation at Wachsbleiche 2 (nearest to the train station) as advertised in his website. Like the previous reviewer - it is confirmed that the place was not safe because the main door was not locked. I called the owner by the phone provided. We waited 45 minutes and called him twice before he actually came. To our dismay, he said he did not have any rooms there when we actually booked it 2 weeks ago.
He brought us to the other accomodation at Von-Freyberg. It is a new house and all furnishings were new.
Sure enough he only changed our sheets while we were standing waiting to go into our room. Did not really annoy me that much as the sheets were clean. What annoyed us was after a tired day, we return and found 5 ladies sharing the same bathroom. They used up the hot water that when I showered half way with shampoo in my hair and I had no hot water left!!! I had to shower it off with cold water in autumn weather. I SMS the owner asking him on the possibility to use another toilet and he did not reply!! The next morning it took us 1 hour to wait for our turns for the bathroom. Wasted my time.
Owner puts you in rooms that's available without taking note to whether you paid for 2 bed, 3 beds or 5 beds. Although we paid for more per person as we were in a smaller group, we had to sleep in a small room with bunk beds. The 5 ladies had a bigger room that can fit in 8 people and then the next night a couple checked in and had the same big room. I'm definately not paying value for money.
It is not a safe accomodation to stay. When checking out we were asked leave the keys to the house and room outside the porch. Owner was not present to collect the keys. YES KEYS LEFT OUTSIDE THE HOUSE. Someone can actually take the keys and come in easily.
The only good side - the the place was 5 minutes walk to the train station and we had quiet nights sleep. Would I stay here again? BIG NO! Unless I want to be robbed!
