Der extra Radkeller ist eine tolle Idee. Weniger Verpackungsmüll beim Frühstück wäre super, sowie die Teeauswahl vergrößern.

Great location right near the train station, and an easy stroll into town. the guys at the desk are more than happy to help with any question you have, be it about the city or the many types of beers. Rooms were lovely and clean, and the breakfast was a good spread. 10/10
