We stayed at this hotel after booking a three day trip to see Andre Rieu with a firm called Newmarket Travel. We paid an extra 20 Euros for an upgrade and got a room with a 'balcony' on the ground floor. The bed was extremely comfortable, in fact we did not want to get up when it came to Breakfast time.
We had a bed and breakfast arrangement. The Breakfast was 'Continental Style' (what else) but was more than adequate. The coffee was excellent.
The staff were very helpful and courteous. We had an evening meal and opted for the 29 Euro each special option of a three course. It was fine apart from my steak was under cooked and full of gristle. I did complain but nothing happened.
The main beer they sell is 'Bavarian' and in my opinion, very palatable.
The hotel itself is right in the middle of an industrial/retail area. I asked a straight forward question to our Tour Guide 'Are there any other thing to go to in the area apart from the hotel' The answer I got was a straight 'No'.
Actually, Aspen is a 20 minute walk away and has an abundance of cafes, restaurants and pubs. I was wondering whether the Guide was under instructions (or something else!!) not to mention this so, as a captive audience, you would have to eat and drink at the hotel. Even the hotels literature does not mention Aspen.
Anyway, overall very acceptable. Loved sitting out on our 'ground floor balcony' reading a book and watching the robotic lawn mower (who we named George) trundling back and forth. less

Thank you very much for your review! First of all, we want to clear the sky, we are actually very proud to be located in Asten! Maybe the Guide ment to say nothing to do in the direct surroundings but we know there are loads of things to do! For example, you can rent a bike and take a tour through the beautifull nature (like the national park) nearby Asten or take a trip to the zoo or themepark! We are sorry that you havent been informed correctly and we are happy that you made a trip to the cozy centre of Asten. Second, thank you very much for your kind compliments! We are very pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you loved the bed and the coffee. Your compliments about our personnel will be shared with them and we hope to welcome you back in the near future! Maybe for another visit to see Andre Rieu? Thank you again and see you soon.
Kind regards, Team Nobis
