Convenient Clean Railway Themed Hotel

Posted Mar 6, 2017 on Hotels
Excellent location. Much better than expected room. Very good breakfast buffet included in the very reasonable room price. Extremely convenient for the steam railway and the restaurant bar has a novel railway theme with service rendered by miniature train set. Great experience, especially if you are a rail enthusiast. Staff are very friendly and take part in the railway experience. Close by main town square.

Clean, lovely hotel right next to the steam trains

Posted Jul 12, 2016 on Orbitz
Pros: The number one attribute to this hotel is the staff. Everyone was pleasant and tried very hard to accommodate us..
I love this hotel! It has so many neat little nuances like the train that delivers drinks in the restaurant, the immaculate rooms and common area, the comfortable bed, the large windows that allow you to hear the trains if you want or not, they are that good. The location is wonderful! It's right next to the steam train depot which transforms you back to a bygone era. The trains take you up to the top of Brocken Mountain and beautiful hiking in Harz National Park. It's a couple blocks from shopping and restaurants in the picturesque city center of Wernigerode. The restaurant has wonderful food! We stayed 3 nights and had dinner there twice! There is a patio out the front door to enjoy a beer or a little nook on the second floor to watch the night settle in. The beer on tap was amazing! I love the staff and the accommodations. We would highly recommend the Hotel Altora to everyone. Request a room in front to enjoy the view of the beautiful hillside and trains, or if you're looking for a silent stay, request a room in the back.

Great railway hotel

Posted Jul 5, 2015 on Hotels
A great hotel for steam railway enthusiasts. Room was perfect and even had view over the railwày. Staff very friendly, but with limited English. Restaurant very good, drinks delivered by model railway! Would have been even better if there had been tea/coffee making facilities in the room.

Great hotel if you are steam train fan!

Posted Dec 8, 2014
Pros: The restaurant has an electric train running round the edge of the room and your drinks are delivered to your table on two flat wagons!
Cons: The towels are a little thin. A kettle would be helpful as well, especially for early morning tea.
Location: Great for the Brocken Steam Railway. We went for the Christmas markets and it was very easy to travel to neighbouring towns but either bus or train.
The hotel restaurant the steam train yard so do some of the , so you can actually watch active steam engines. The only drawback is that these rooms are also next to the main road, so you do get early traffic noise. The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from both the railway and bus stations.
