Nice hotel. We had a good-size room. The bed was two twins pushed together. There were extra pillows in the closet, two chairs, a desk and a desk chair. We could control the heat. There was no A/C but there was a ceiling fan, the first one I’ve seen in Europe. A mini-fridge, stocked up. The TV had the usual three English news channels. There was a luggage stand and room in the closet for another suitcase. Also in the closet was an umbrella you could either borrow or buy.
The bathroom had two towels per person – hand and bath towels – and a bonus of a facecloth, lotion, shower cap, small bar of soap, nail file, tissues and a hair dryer. The shower was big enough for two and both the shower and sink had the squeeze dispenser of soap/shampoo. Our only real problem was finding a place to plug in the cell phone as the power bar was up underneath the desk.
The breakfast buffet was well done. There were eggs – boiled or scrambled, hot and cold meats, fish, cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh fruit, breads, rolls, about six or more cold cereals, and at least four types of yogurt. We went down late, 9:30 and things were fully stocked and maintained until breakfast was over.
The location to town and Sans Souci park is excellent. We were able to walk to the hotel from the train station, walked all around town and the park. At the end of our visit we wanted a cab to the train station and they had a shuttle there for us in about 10 minutes. Local transportation is close enough to take also.
All staff members were very helpful and friendly. We couldn’t have asked for better.
