Hotel is extremely well located ( 5 min walk from the railway station, very easy to find).
Great Staff, extremely friendly and helpful, rooms were nice and cosy, not very modern,but with every thing you need. A big plus is as well the free tea and coffee provided in the rooms.
Breakfast was very good ( loads of swiss cheese, juice, fruit, bread etc).
Would definatly book there again

... my way back home later that night in time to have dinner with the girls. Friday was a bit of a down day, I hung out with the girls around the apartment and went into the local town to get some more groceries aka deli meat, cheese, and bananas. That's kind of been my diet for the last couple weeks, yummm. It was a nice rest day again and I got to know the girls a bit better. And that finally brings us to the Present! Today is Saturday and I'm happy I finally ...
... an unusual sight on the next Track. It was an older red-coloured train that looked like it had been built in the 1940’s. There were large Flash Guns and Umbrellas set up, and flashes firing repeatedly. I could see people in the cars behind, and it looked like these had been configured like a dining car on The Orient Express. There were people inside eating and Waiters moving back and forth serving them. Some of the windows of the locomotive had ...
