2/10 Poor

Falso 3 estrelas .
Hotel se descreve como 3 estrelas, mas na verdade, não deve ter 1 . Quarto mto feio, aspecto de sujo , aquecedor não funciona, Wi-Fi não funciona . O chuveiro é horrível e água quente só por 2 minutos. O aquecedor não funciona e passamos mto frio à noite . Tudo bem o hotel ser bem simples, mas a descrição de 3 estrelas é enganação . O quarto tem aspecto de sujo.

8/10 Very good

Die Unterkunft an sich ist perfekt. Alles neu und der Parkplatz ist direkt vor dem Haus. Das Zimmer hat alles was man braucht. Das Frühstück wurde individuell zubereitet. Die Lage ist etwas außerhalb der Stadt. Das einzige was etwas suspekt war, das wir einmal früher zurück waren und die Hausdame in unserem Zimmer stand. Angeblich wollte sie nur Raumduft versprühen und hat die Schokolade für die Kissen vergessen. Dies geschah aber nur einmal. Gefehlt hat nichts. Es war nur etwas seltsam. Sonst war alles perfekt.
