    Christmas Markets Hotel

    This was an EXCELLENT choice! It's located less than 5 minutes outside the gate to the Old City. We were in town for the Christmas Markets and couldn't have picked a better location. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The room was incredible - clean, new, large. We were within easy walking distance of the Christmas Markets inside the Old City and right on the bus and light rail lines. We were about a 10 minute bus ride to the main rail station. Definitely would stay here again!
