We (2 retired couples) altered our route to visit Goslar, because a friend of ours introduced it as a must-see. Well ... An appealing old town without anything stunning. The hotel was also overpriced, although they lowered it after we made our reservation. It is not within easy walk of the old town, and there is nothing special on the way. The UNESCO world-heritage mines are on the other side of the town, not within walking distance at all. Also the Schützenplatz, where fests are fiered. We were lucky, because there was this "Shützenfest" on the day we arrived - 30 th June. There were merry-go-rounds, bumping-cars, and everything at the fair ground. Lots of people coming from neighbouring towns were having fun, eating, drinking and dancing. For me and my wife, this was a nice experience.
Though the hotel has 4 stars, the rooms did not give that impression. Rooms are a bit worn-out, 2-star quality and size, only a balcony with plastic chairs extra. A heaven for a heavy smoker like me.
We tried to find a reason why this hotel had such a low benefit/price ratio, and decided that it must be because of the Germans themselves coming there for the baths. As we had no interest in bathing, and we did not intend to spend a vacation there, it should be expected that we would find the price high.
Apart from us, the only foreigners were from an elderly Japanese group, taking pictures of almost every living and non-living object they see, including us! We guessed that their interest in this town stemmed from its being a historical imperial capital. It is not that impressive though.
The buffet breakfast was fine, nothing special. As a smoker, I preferred sitting outside, but tables could not be prepared before almost an hour later than the breakfast room. I could not understand why I was asked for my room number three times by different waiters, but what the heck?
