Stayed here during a business trip. The rooms are a little dated and remind me of the 70’s although clean and tidy could do with a little modernisation. It was quite hot outside (32deg) but the room was like an oven, to the point of not being able to sleep. I asked for a fan but all 20 that the hotel own, had been given out already, be careful as the rooms are not air conditioned at all.
It’s a good 30-45 minute walk to the restaurants in town.
The staff are pleasant and welcoming.
Breakfast buffet was excellent with a good selection.
Although it was a nice hotel, I would look elsewhere next time I am in town unfortunately mainly due to the room temperature...

Thank you for your good Feedback about or staff and the rich freakfastbuffet. But sorry, I have a different attitude about heat and air conditioning. I can therefore understand why you would like to live somewhere else. As long as there is no ecological, energy-efficient and healthy solution, we will delay the installation of air conditioning systems. Thank you for your understanding. Here is an excerpt from an article in "gesundheit.de": Health disadvantage of air conditioning systems Many people who are regularly exposed to air-conditioned air in the office, for example, complain of adverse effects: too much draught, too much cold, too dry mucous membranes. As a result, there are more diseases, primarily colds, problems with the bronchi and sinuses and increased susceptibility to infections. Irritated skin and mucous membranes, headaches and concentration disorders are also attributed to the conditioned air. And again and again there are reports that air conditioning systems mutate into killers if not maintained properly: Legionnaire's disease, in particular, can lead to severe, potentially fatal pneumonia. The air conditioning stinks? Cleaning helps. Microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi lead an unnoticed and undisturbed life of their own in the filters and pipes of air conditioning systems. They collect and reproduce and are flung directly into the human organism by the air stream. With high humidity the moulds are particularly pleased. High humidity is caused, among other things, by condensation when hot air cools down. Air conditioning systems must be professionally serviced at least once a year - technical and hygienic defects can only be remedied in good time with such an air conditioning system maintenance. Air conditioning makes you ill Even if the air conditioning system is maintained optimally, it can have disadvantages: With outside temperatures of 30 or 40 degrees Celsius and high humidity, everyone starts sweating. In an air-conditioned and therefore cool office, restaurant or hotel room it is easy to catch a cold - the abrupt change between high and low temperatures stresses the immune system and weakens the immune cells. The sweat suddenly cools down, the dry air additionally irritates the mucous membranes of the upper airways - many types of viruses have an easy game and the stiff neck is not long in coming. In addition, the cardiovascular system is also under great strain. To avoid abrupt temperature fluctuations, especially in hot summers, air conditioners should not be set too cool - the temperature difference between inside and outside should not exceed 6°C. If necessary, keep a jacket handy even in summer. American researchers have discovered that air conditioners make you fat. What sounds like an April Fool's joke is explained as follows: In always equal and well-tempered interiors you sweat and freeze less frequently - and thus use less energy.
