We picked K&T due to its many favorable reviews on trip advisor, and we were overall not disappointed. The boarding house is in a fantastic location, and all major attractions in the inner stadt were within walking distance (and this comes from two girls who hate walking). The boardinghouse is also very near Spittle berg, a nice neighborhood filled with interesting shops.
Do note: If you're taking the metro to the boarding house, take the Amerlingstrasse exit as per website instructions, but take the Escalator instead of the Elevator to exit the metro. The latter will not bring you to Cafe Ritter but instead to the main street. We were lost for a while because of that.
K&T does not provide breakfast, which is ok. There are alot of food options around. K&T was clean, simply furnished and the shower worked just fine. When we made our reservations, we specified that we wanted a quiet room. However, we were given a room on the first floor, and directly outside our window was the bus stop. We were told that it's ok, the buses will stop running after midnight. But woe to early and light sleepers. Pls bring your ear plugs with you.
A nice lady met us at K&T (I forgot her name) and proceeded to give us a city map and also made some typical tourist recommendations. However, when we asked for more information pertaining to music performances and etc, she was not able to assist.
Overall, this is a value for money lodging, and I would have given it 5 stars if we had been allocated a quiet room. The room pictures on the boardinghouse's website are pretty accurate representations.
