Having taken a taxi from the airport, we arrived here late at night. A cheery welcome from the receptionist (who seemed to know our names before we actually said anything......I know the Germans have the reputation for being efficient but this was spooky!) and then into the main lift.....room for us two and two suitcases...just!
The rooms are small, just space to walk round the side by side twin beds. We had to ask for second pillows and I was worried the duvet wouldn't be warm enough....but the radiator gave us enough heat, so cosy! Sadly no tea, coffee making facilities....makes a difference when coming in from sightseeing all day and waking first thing in morning....maybe they could think about this (space below the tv shelf maybe...kettle, cups, coffee and tea sachets...don't forget the milk and sugar/sweeteners!)
The bathroom......you could sit on the loo, brush your teeth in the sink and have one leg soaking in the bath at the same time if you so desired, and were flexible enough.....lol!! It is small.....BUT......adequate, plenty of HOT water, excellent.....clean.....bath towels are on the small side but do the job. One thing I loved was the loo paper...quilted and not paper thin......well done!!
Breakfast was enough...not Michelin Star but a reasonable start to the day...once you'd sorted out where you could sit etc....no one to meet and greet and tell you the ropes....but it isn't rocket science!
The location of this hotel is excellent.......30 seconds walk onto the "Bond Street" equivalent. We booked a two day ticket for the City Circle Sightseeing bus....hop on, hop off.....well worth it. Plenty of Xmas markets to see and of course the local history sights.....fascinating.
All in all......I would come back to this little gem of an hotel......may even try the bar tonight as it's our last night here (after all, they have supplied me with ice every evening to help a swollen knee injury....very helpful!)
