A good place to have a night sleep. Easy to find, quiet, not expensive. We didn't expect more. No English speaking person (check-in and check-out)!

Dated hotel but nice staff
Our room was a large apartment style room which was quite dated but clean. There are railroad tracks across the street but we didn't have a real problem with noise in the late hours. The staff was friendly.

trochę za drogo dla takiego standardu
Powitanie w recepcji mało przyjemne. Natomiast rano obsługa przez przesympatyczną Panią (chyba właścicielka) pozwoliła miło rozpocząć dzień.

4/10 Fair

Nein Danke nicht nochmal
Das Zimmer war renovierungsbedürftig. Matratze oder das Lattenrost war sehr schlecht und sollte ausgetauscht werden. Man hat da quasi in einer Kuhle gelegen. Am Morgen hatte ich extreme Rücken und Nacken schmerzen. Mit der Rechnung gab es auch Probleme sodass ich weitere Lauferei habe. Nie wieder.
