    The location of Hotel Alter Telegraph is perfect for walking into the town centre, across a park. The room(s) were huge - for some reason we had an entry lobby, a kitchen area (without any facilities) and two bedrooms! The breakfast was very good....

    The hotel is a good value for the cost, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant is excellent.
  • Janis
    Nice staff attitude (had very late arrival). Good location (bus stop around a corner, castle hill next to). Good although basic breakfast.
  • Растворова
    We stayed in the hotel for 1 night and I want to say that the room is very big and the bed is fantastically comfortable with some additional options to move the matras, the interior is a little bit old-facioned but nice.
  • Vesna
    small but comfortable room, good mattress, tv which you can watch from bed (not twisting your neck or it being in some strange corner), has everything you need even if outdated
  • Saskia
    Location was perfect, very close to the center. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable although it was a bit outdated. The breakfast was fine. Very nice especially for the price you pay.

    Big, cozy rooms. Clean and nice. Normal breakfast, you have everything you want. Location is very good. Since hotel is on the street, private parking is near, maybe 100 meters. Staff are very nice, warm to the guests,.... All together, they make...
