Be prepared to pay 5-10% extra
The hotel charged us 50 USD more for our stay, as compared to the price stated on our reservation. The claimed it was due to the exchange rate. We felt that this is very dishonest, they just wanted to take advantage of us. Breakfast: nice breakfast, mostly homemade. Room: simple, but clean. Unfortunately, the walls are very thin, and you don't have a lot privacy. You hear everything your neighbor says and does, and we often did not get a good night's sleep because of other guests waking up early or coming home late. Location: great, close to bus station, grocery store, pharmacy, spa, restaurants, hikes. The hotel also has a bar/beer garden attached. Unfortunately, that means very loud music during weekend evenings, until quite late. It felt like being next to a nightclub, not like being in a small quiet village in the mountains.
