I stayed in this Hotel for short time. Room was good, good staff, Food OK. But it is better than other small Hotel such as Pension Konigsturm etc. One of my friend stayed there, only to pay up additional surprize charges !! Staff will also help you to get a taxi here.

We have stayed here many times over the years and have always been satisfied with the experience. It could use some updates and better air circulation. Bathrooms could stand a bit of updates. We've been coming since the early 90's and I think they bathrooms are still the same. Our room was spacious and breakfast was nice. It did not... More

convenient for the main square and the many local bars and restaurants but looking a bit tired in places. the bathrooms need a refit, shower screens etc and the hair dryer was probably all the rage in the 1950s LOL! Breakfast was excellent though and rooms were comfortable enough, would use again.

Room was large and our roll away beds for the kids were all... More

I always stay at the Pelikan when traveling to the area. This last visit I was very happy with all the upgrades the hotel has completed. New carpet, fresh paint, new wallpaper etc. if you haven't stayed here before you will be happy with the accommodations and morning breakfast

I stay at this hotel on a regular basis and am never disappointed. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the beds are really comfortable. The staff are so accommodating - its a home from home. The breakfast is varied and of good quality, really sets me up for the day.

We arrived quite late in the afternoon after a long drive with our kids and were very happy to be attended to so quickly. The rooms were spotless and the extra cot we had requested for our son was already made up. We spent 4 nights in the Hotel because of its great location and its very accomodating staff. Every...
