I can only echo many of the other recent reviews that have also rated this hotel very highly. Bed sound; bathroom fixtures all worked well; breakfast good (though somewhat hectic do to very large tour bus crowd staying at the hotel that had all apparently arrived to eat at same time.)
What I found most notable was the high caliber of the staff: as previously noted: very pleasant, helpful and efficient. Two cases in point: (1) We arrived earlier than I expected (around 13:00) and didn't really expect our room to be ready. The manager checked, and it hadn't yet been fully cleaned. but apparently he redirected cleaning staff to make it next to be cleaned and sure enough we're in our room in no more than 20 min.
(2) Later that afternoon we arrived back at the hotel after picking up our bicycles that we would use on our Danube bike trip over the following days, and we needed to store them in the hotel's "bike garage". Our timing wasn't the best as that aforementioned tour bus of people had just arrived, obviously taxing the front desk's capacity to check so many people in at once. So I didn't even attempt to get the front desk's attention but just stood aside to let "the storm pass." But despite this flurry of activity, a lady at the front desk that had previously checked us in, and so recognized me standing there, proactively paused in what she was doing to ask what I needed. She immediately arranged for someone with a key to the "garage" to assist me.
I do disagree with one previous review that suggested English speakers are not welcomed. Quite to the contrary, in all my contact with the front desk staff English posed no problem as all seemed fluent. I can't speak for the wait staff at breakfast, but I never sensed any bias.
Kudos to the staff.
