I have graded this hotel above average, that's a combination of average for the accommodation and excellent for everything else including the food.
The two previous reviews of this hotel are both correct, it just depends on the perspective of the writer.
If you want an up to date, modern hotel, with the latest facilities, then this is not for you. It is not the sort of place where you wake up and can't decide what country you're in, let alone what city. It could only be small town Germany. If you don't want that then don't go.
If you like a family run hotel, with personal, albeit sometimes quirky, touches try here.
The food is excellent. (Although the hotel's attempt to put on the cooked breakfast they seem to think their English and American guests want is really quite funny. They make all the sausage, bacon, eggs etc for 0630 at the start of breakfast and leave it on hotplates.
If foreigners think that's how we eat no wonder they consider our food unedable. Ignore it, in fact do them a favour, tell them not to bother, I did!)
The cold spread of meats, cheeses and breads is well above standard in both choice and quantity, tuck in. My step-daughter thought she had died and gone to heaven when she discovered that, not only was chocolate spread available for breakfast, she was allowed it!
The hotel has a good resaurant on the ground floor for guests and locals. It is well used and perfectly acceptable. However, take the lift to the basement instead. The bar has extracts from the same menu, but much more locally orientated. You can listen to live music some nights (a good jazz band), play skittles (book ahead as the locals use this place) and you don't have to dress for dinner. I take my lap top down and work for the evening and nobody bothers, couldn't do that upstairs in the restaurant.
The rooms are functional, clean, tidy and comfortable, but a bit bland and uninspiring. With mini bars, telephones and TVs (only German stations - try Crocodile Dundee dubbed into German, hilarious!). One nice touch, not only were the management quite happy to empty the minibar in the childrens room, they didn't say a word when they filled it with cheap coke from a local supermarket.
As I said, your thoughts on this hotel depend on your perspective and requirements. I can understand why it would be a hotel you either loved or loathed. Personally I enjoyed it, but then I lived in Germany for four years in the 1970s and this is a trip back in time for me.
