This motel style hotel looks a bit dated outside but the rooms are good quality. An abundance of towels and toiletries, including a bag inviting you to take the toiletries home with you. The rooms have heating but no air conditioning, not that you would need it as even in summer it is cool at night.
The rooms are specious with three single beds in the one we had. The bathroom a little small. There is only a small space for hanging cloths but as most people only spend one night here it is adequate. The rooms do not have a safe. Tea and coffee making facilities and a small fridge are provided.
Wifi is available at a cost and the restaurant opposite the hotel offers free Wifi.
The rooms do not have an iron which is only available if you wait at the guest laundry. A small point but as many who use this hotel are touring an important issue for guests.
The hotel has restaurant facilities but Franz Josef has a few others to choose from. This is limited to two or three. There is also a well stocked small supermarket in town.
The breakfast was ok but as the hotel is coping with large tour groups it is not a pleasurable experience.
