Leider hat das check-in nicht geklappt. Obwohl wir schon vorher bei ihnen waren, mussten wir ein Anmeldeformular ausfüllen. Die Zimmer-Karten haben nicht funktioniert und wir mussten an der Reception neue machen lassen. Sonst alles tip top

Hotel direkt in der Altstadt

Altmodisch eingerichtetes Hotel. Zimmer gut und sauber. Frühstücksbüffet reichhaltig. Leider Kaffee aus der Thermoskanne und Saft aus dem Automaten. Pool hat reichlich Chlor. Publikum älteren Semesters, Abendunterhaltungen auf diese Altersgruppe abgestimmt.

Durchschnitt kann auch gut sein.

Grenzerfahrung in einem "jüngeren" Altersheim. Kein Wunder können die Türen so laut zuknallen...
