    Though it is close to the city centre and the main station, the property is on a hill which means that you have to climb steep paths to reach the reception and climb even more to reach your room. So it is not recommended for elderly people unless they have a car with them. The room was very small (just a small single bed) compared to the price.

    1. Clean and comfortable room, 2. Breakfast was good. 3. City centre, cathedral and main station are near by

    Passed the first sign on the road and ended up in the service entry, which was difficult to turn around in. It is quite a walk to town, but there was sufficient parking so you can leave and still get a space when you return.

    There was a lobby with comfortable seating areas with games and reading material. (This is a great place for groups.) I was glad we were in the main building. The attic room had a nice view of the town.

    The hotel was very well located in a quiet neighbourhood and we enjoyed the 10-15 minute walk to the city centre. Not the best location if you do not like to walk too much and deal with a somewhat steep incline. If you don't mind that, it's a great location with free parking.

    The best breakfast of all of our stays. Very clean and comfortable and spacious.

    The hotel is very pricey for the facilities offered. The room is simple, whilst ensuite there is no TV or tea making facilities in the room. Tea/coffee must be paid for in the reception.

    The hotel is in a good location, ten minutes walk to the old town in a quiet area. There is free on site parking if required. The staff are friendly and the room comfortable.

    Very practical setup in a quiet environment, a 10-minute walk from the city center with free parking space available on site (Saturday night stay). The single room was extremely clean and well set up for rest and work; there is no TV, and nobody seems to regret it. Clean bathroom as well. Good wifi connection. Extensive choice for breakfast . . . which requires some walk between the food area and the eating area, given teh area is built to accomodate large groups.

    If you are taking public transport, it is a bit of a pull uphill to get from the bus stop to the hotel with luggage. Once you get your stuff there, however, the location is wonderful and quiet and the same walk was one of my favorite parts.

    It is like a retreat center! Gorgeous grounds, gorgeous views, quiet and tucked away on the mountain side. Simple, but excellent with a wonderful breakfast. The walk into the city (10 minutes) is absolutely lovely as well - through a nice neighborhood and a beautifull park that connects to a bridge that drops you right into old town.

    Not a problem for us but the entire area is on a hillside so quite steep & might be awkward for some as the 10 min walk down to the city centre is the sensible way rather than driving/parking

    breakfast - excellent location & view cleanliness the bed - even a pillow choice re support level facilities car parking wi-fi included evening drink/snack provision, on honesty basis & no TV in room - which is good.

    I would have liked an advance email or message to let me know where the key was. It was quite perplexing to arrive at 6pm in the evening and not speak German and find the doors to reception locked. There was a sign on the reception desk to tell you there was a letter in the mailbox but reception was behind a locked door. Thankfully someone else staying there assisted me in. I was on the second floor and had to lug my heavy bag up the stairs as there are no elevators here. The coffee was undrinkable.

    I liked the location being close to the Forest and it was tranquil. I wouldn't have wanted to pay any more though. The view from my room was lovely and it made the basic room much nicer and even took the edge of the non existent service.

    Location. It's in 12 min of walk to the Cathedral. The hotel, a group of the small cottages, located in the quiet cozy zone on the mountain. Everything is new and incredibly clean. Simple and modern but very light and cozy hall and rooms. Huge bathroom. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. The option to have some drinks in the pleasant small bar zone.
