Interesting set of conditions for this place. The price was fantastic, as such we certainly do not expect it to be a super good place. From the outside it looks old and in need of repair, and the garden/yard area seemed completely neglected. On the inside the reception and restaurant area was newly refurbished, clean and quite modern--a stark contrast to the outside. They were in the process of refurbishing the rooms also. In fact, we had to walk down a hallway where they were working on the rooms-- floor covered with plastic, doors carefully propped along the hallway walls and workers coming and going, painting, sawing and smoking--to get to the hallway where our room was. Our room was refurbished. Small, but immaculate, and comfortable (especially for the low price we paid.) Breakfast was good with the normal offerings for a Germany hotel. Mostly, it was interesting that we had to walk through a construction area to get to our room. We were not bothered as we both have worked construction, but it just did not seem like a sound business move.
