    Fabulous

    Fantastic location and breakfast. Overall, a high-class hotel.

    The "free" wired internet in the rooms is limited to 50mb for the first 24 hours. After 24 hours, regardless of usage, you have to pay. Even when paying for parking, it can be sometimes difficult to find a spot.

    Everything was very clean and the buffet breakfast was excellent

    Not much but if I have to say something maybe that there are no electrical plugs near the bed. I stayed on the first floor but not in the main building.

    Very good

    The hotel is a nice historic and modern property. we stayed in a suite in the historic wing which was comfortable and pleasing furnished.

    There is only one elevator to access accommodation in the historic wing and it is located on one side of the hotel - quite a long way from our room. To access the elevator you have to walk through the breakfast or evening buffet where guests are obtaining their food, most unpleasant for both parties especially when you are checking out with your luggage means taking your luggage through the breakfast buffet. The restaurant is situated next to the buffet servery area and provides for both fine dining! and buffet guests. Also of note is the bar was closed so pre dinner drinks could not be enjoyed. I would not consider this to be a 4 star superior hotel.

    Superb

    This was the place where my grandmother died in 1954 when it was still a hospital. You have an exelent staff at the reception desk and resaurant not to forget the bar. The breackfast in the morning wa just out of this world and so was your staff. The afternoon coffee and selection of cakes wasa pleasant suprise.

    As a foreigner not knowing that certain services were not available due to local holidays. How are we to know? Noisy tourists in the elevator and bar from the Netherlands. Dirty drinking glases brought up from the bar not removed at all during my stay.

    Convinient location - near city center.

    Very old building. Windows are old wooden. All sounds from the street are in the hotel rooms. There is no separate room for the restaurant, breakfast is in lobby. Therefore smell of food is everywhere in the hotel including rooms. Breakfast is poor.

    Very good

    the authentic atmosphere and the large rooms are great

    it is reallly strange to walk from your room though the breakfast corridor, if you want to visit th e wellness the wellness is not what I expected only 1 sauna was in operation.

    Helpful staff with good English, a rarity in Germany outside major cities. Comfortable beds with ample supply of pillows. Excellent breakfast with a variety of foods. Walkable from city core. Quiet location, an important factor.

    Luxury hotel a short walk from picturesque town centre . Easy drive from autobahn, hotel has it's own secure underground car park. Enormous room comfortable beds and luxurious bathroom with robes and slippers. The hotel is a palace (literally) and the staff at reception could not have been more friendly and helpful. I recommend this hotel very highly and it's definitely worth paying for a superior room.

    This hotel has no faults at all, I cannot find anything negative to say
