This review is intended to make future guests aware that this a very old hotel in the medieval part of town so there is no point in expecting a modern, cosy experience with full facilities. I am not criticising the hotel.
We arrived after 9 at night as our taxi driver got lost twice en route from Stuttgart Airport. Fortunately the owner speaks good English and he sent us to a large quiet room in Annexe No 2 which is 75m up a cobbled road and up two flights of stairs.The hotel is very dark inside due to extensive use of dark wood panelling and low wattage lighting.
Our room was straight out of the 1950's with creaky floors and robust furniture. The heating was not functioning fully until the hotel filled up on our second night. The bathroom was cold and the drain backed up when using the shower which is unhygienic. Our double room was large and comfortable, so no complaints there.
Regarding room facilities, everything is 'extra': Wi-Fi, use of the room safe, mineral water...unusual for today's hotels who go out of there way to please customers..
Breakfast was adequate, we used a local restaurant for dinner so I cannot comment on the hotel food.
Most of the staff are friendly, and some not so much.
Overall I would have difficulty scoring this hotel higher based on this stay.
