At times it can be a bit of a challenge trying to gauge whether a hotel or B&B is right for you and your family or group you may be traveling with, especially in Europe. The Europaeischer Hof was much more than we expected after reading reviews and visiting their website. Their customer service and attentiveness was exceptional. We were...

My wife and I stayed at the hotel over Christmas 2011 and had a fabulous time from the minute we arrived to the moment we departed. Very nice rooms, of course in "Alpine" look and modern bathrooms.
