located 45 minutes by train from the heart of the city. Room are cozy, facilities are incredibly good with a bath tub and a sauna. Staff are very accommodating. Foods are not that good.

Like several unique eating establishments ( describing them as a "restaurant" would be misleading:-) there were only 2 things on the menu:dumplings and noodle soup. So the only thing you need to convey to the waitress is how many you want:-). Another thing, not on the menu, ...
