I did a lot of research when looking for places to stay for a tour of France and Switzerland with a friend over over winter break. I found the Rugenpark right here on travel advisor and booked it through the B&B's website. The reviews sounded good, I was struck by all the mentions of great hospitality, and the price was right for two students.....
So...Imagine getting in late on a train, having traveled all day, carrying heavy backpacks, having stayed in a somewhat filthy place the night before for far more expensive then the Rugenpark..... and opening the door to your room to find the place absolutely spotless with wonderfuly warm and fluffy white comforters, little Toblerones on your pillow, and hot cider and biscuts waiting just for you!
This place really was wonderful. It was always very clean, nicely decorated, with lovely little personal touches abound (matching trashcan/ lampshades/curtains). Breakfast was tasty and abundant, the location is perfect- just a few blocks from the train station.
And the service! Chris and Ursula really do make you feel at home, and are very very hospitable and helpful providing us with maps, weather reports, and even a spare snowsuit when we wanted to go sledging! I can not say enough good things about this place.
The building where this B&B is located does seem to be a bit old , the floors were a bit creaky etc, but it seems that they have done the best they can with the building and with the price and all the wonderful personal touches at the Rugenpark, I really do recommend this place wholeheartedly!
