This hotel reminds me of the story about an old maid who lived in a shoe house. Authentic and traditional. The house was built in 1536. It escaped the wars and the turbulent years. So, the wood trusses on the ceiling and the walls are original. It was converted into a hotel in 1984.
The amenities, however, are modern. There is a bathtub, with good hot water and heater in the bathroom. There is an LCD TV and a small transistor radio. (I discover that a lot of hotels in Germany provide a radio in the room. Do Germans like listening to the radio throughout their stay in hotels?)
Our room was on the highest floor, we had to climb three flights of steep staircase to get to the room. It may not be a problem for me, but it may be a deterrent for others. So, it may be a good idea to get rooms at lower floors.
At the breakfast table, the cold cuts were served on a silver platter on each table, making it very homely and comfortable. The host was exceptionally merry with the guests. I think it was because we are Asians, he let us taste his home-made mango chutney. It was the best mango chutney we had ever eaten. And of course, made in Germany.More
