Spent two nights prior to a Rhine Cruise and the hotel was fantastic. Stephanie at the front desk was so helpful with check in considering we had delayed luggage. The room was spacious and comfortable. Location was perfect. Breakfast and dinner were delicious and all the staff were great. Would definitely stay there again

From these reviews, I had no qualms about booking here for the night before our Rhine cruise. The hotel lived up to its fine reputation. Our room was ready early, and was very nice, comfortable, and quiet. The staff was gracious in all respects, including sightseeing advice, and in finding the correct pier for our ship. Dinner at their restaurant...

Excellent location. Central to city center. Clean and friendly. Easy to walk to the Marketplatz and the Rhein. They supplied a transit pass for local trams and local busses. They also provided a free glass of wine and daily restocking of the mini-frig. The hotel was recommended by a local resident and it is great.

The hotel was fabulous! Great room, restaurant and bar, breakfast buffet. The staff was top notch and helpful in every way, no question went unanswered. The location in Marketplatz was convenient to trams, the river and walking tours. Restaurants an shops abound in the area and the hotel staff always had recommendation.
