Fantastic staff, easy location

For a trip to Saarland, I can't imagine a nicer hotel. The staff were friendly, all quite happy to speak in English or auf Deutsch, and obviously very proud of their region and their city. They're full of helpful advice. The hotel is about as close as you can get to the train station in Saarlous, though we didn't hear any trains at all from the hotel room. And the breakfast buffet! Fantastic. Worth the stay just for the breakfast alone. Plus, you're about 100 yds from the Saar River - beautiful views at sunset from the bridge, if the weather cooperates, bike path up and down the Saar - and a 10 min walk into town. Dinner in the restaurant was also great, the lamb and asparagus were perfect, but I have to say, the prices around town are more competitive. All in all, a great stay.
