“Delicious "Pfifferlinge" dinner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

I had the opportunity to spend my birthday in Quedlinburg, Germany and since chantarelles (pfifferlinge in German) are my seasonal favorites, we chose this hotel's restaurant. There is inside seating, but we chose to sit in the outiside "biergarten" which is a pleasant inner courtyard of the hotel. It was full of guests and everyone seemed to be enjoying thir dinner. Our server, Frau Lenske, was very attentive and even helped us to change the menu a little so that we could enjoy a Germany speciality, spätzle, with our dinner. We ended up having pork schnitzel, sautéed chantarelles, buttered spätzle and greens and believe me, it was DELICIOUS! All we needed to complete the meal was a cold German beer and the portions were so generous that we had no room for dessert this time. The food was well-prepared and hot when we received it and not pricey at all - about 14 Euros for the entrée. I would recommend this restaurant to any travellor who wants to enjoy a true German meal.

Stayed here while walking & exploring the half timbered medieval city of Quedlinburg.
Walking distance to all in the city. Nice helpful staff, excellent restaurant with local specialities. Quiet, rather ordinary room, clean and all we needed at a good price.

Fine mid-range hotel, ideally located for exploring this well-preserved town so rich in half-timbered buildings. In fact, hotel is located in such a building, and so some may be disappointed to find that its interior is modern and functional - once inside, only the creaky floors indicate its age. But my room was spacious, clean, quiet, and reasonably priced; and breakfast the next morning was above-average. On the other hand, dinner in the (generally well-regarded) restaurant was only so-so: I found the local-specialty dish of soggy fried potatoes, fatty pork, and mushrooms served in a frying pan substantial, but forgettable.
Hotel is not that far from the train station; but station has no luggage-storage facilities, and cobblestone sidewalks make pulling a suitcase awkward (and noisy), so a taxi may be required. Quedlinburg itself, though not yet quite as thoroughly prettied up as comparable West German towns, is a very rewarding destination, especially in the evening after the many day-trippers have departed, and belongs, I believe, on every German itinerary.

We stayed here one night. Room was spacious and bathroom was spotless. Free parking is available in the back of the hotel. Wireless internet is avalable for a fee. Breakfast (buffet style) was outstanding with many choices. Location was excellent - right on one of the squares.

One thing that surprised us was the modernity of the room. We'd anticipated some old world, half-timbered charm and the room looked more like an average business hotel. That said, I should have looked more closely at the photos posted at this website.

Nonsmoking rooms are available, but there is smoking allowed in one of the two restaurants on the main floor. If you like to read, the lighting may be rather dim.

A good value hotel & we probably had the same room overlooking the market. The fountain is now working & the view is great.
Two words of warning. Frst, get to breakfast early -it's really good but "re-stocking" can be slow. Secondly, the nearby church clock strikes every quarter of an hour (a hazard unless you are a heavy sleeper!)
All in all, however, it's a great place to stay with a large car park & close to the town centre.

A visit to the Golden Sun was everything I could have hoped for, and more! When we stepped into the courtyard I could easily imagine my Grandfather, as a young man, bringing a wagon load of farm goods right up to the loading area. The rooms were steeped in antiquity and yet had any modern convenience one could need. The view from our room overlooked the market place and, unfortuately, the fountain was under repair during our stay. But it wasn't hard to imagine how magnificent the sounds and sights may have been! The marketplace bustled with activity in the daytime and each shop was a delight to investigate. We visited in mid-October but flowers were still blooming in window boxes all over the building fronts. The staff were helpful, friendly, and worked hard to understand the American way of speaking English!
Breakfast was a beautiful sight and the hotel resturant was serene.
Someday soon we plan to return to the Golden Sun. Our stay there was one of the highlights of our European trip.
