A fine hotel, and apparently the only option in this attractive small town. Reception was friendly, the room unusually spacious (for Germany), everything was clean and tidy (as usual), and the breakfast buffet was more than ample. Hotel name may be somewhat misleading: it is actually located on the top floor of a small downtown shopping center (the Altstadt Gallerie), i.e., the surroundings aren't immediately attractive; and you’ll need to plan your approach carefully, for there is only one roundabout way to get there through the maze of one-way and pedestrian-only streets - you have to aim for the underground garage (signed for hotel; inexpensive), from which an elevator takes you up to the third floor. Hotel is garni, but there is a very good Greek restaurant on the floor below.
In any case, the town itself was a pleasant surprise: having once been the capital of a (very) small independent principality, its spruced-up downtown has a nice riverside setting surrounded by hills, with a castle up above, a neo-classical palace down below, and a nice large park in which to relax. In short, town + hotel + Greek restaurant made for a very pleasant stay.More
