    Basic but clean, good breakfast, great for families.

    • Stayed 2 nights

    Feather pillow are not a great for us as two of us have asthma. Also heavy curtains to block out the daylight in the summer would be good, especially when there are kids involved.

    The breakfast was better than we were expecting. A well-stocked buffet with an eagle eyed lady on hand making sure nothing ran out. The warm rolls and eggs were great. The offer of fresh waffles were a nice touch and very much appreciated. Also the roaring wood stove first thing made the breakfast room cosy. Our room could have slept 6, so this is a good choice for budget conscious families.

    We had two room in the basement. The windows looked at the bottoms of the parked cars. The bathrooms were renovated by someone who was not handy in this area. The floor was laminate, but the pieces did not fit together leaving gaps and open edges on the floor. I imagine that the upstairs rooms are better, but avoid being placed in the basement.

    The Breakfast Buffet was really good and well stocked. It is only a short walk to the ski lift!

    We had a comfortable stay at Hotel Askania. It is ideal for families. The hotel is situated in the activity center of Braunlage close to Eis Stadion, Wurmberg Seilbahn station and starting points of major trekking/hiking routes to snowy Wurmberg and Brocken peaks. The staff is warm and friendly. After a walk in the cold weather, spend the evening at the fireplace in the cozy dining hall.
