Best Breakfast
Room was just as pictured, spacious and airy. Bed was comfortable and hotel was quiet. The absolute best part was the breakfast, authentically European without pandering to American taste. Just what we wanted.

Backmulde near old town.
Nice size bathroom with hot shower. Beds are firm european standard. Better pillows than last place. We had the interior room which had a window looking into hall. We kept the curtains closed and were only in the room to sleep so that was ok for us. The breakfast was great! Staff was very nice and allowed us to leave a bag in the morning so we could go touring until after checkout time. Lots of great restaurants and bars nearby. Great location for old town touring.

Loved it!
This guest house looks cute in pictures but those are nothing compared to the real life adorable mess of the house. The staff was very courteous, helpful, and had a great sense of humor. The room was a great surprise. It was huge, with a huge bathroom (the room was for 3 people but 4 could have fit with plenty of space. The breakfast was great. This hotel is a great find.
