From an ecological and economical viewpoint we decided not have a minibar in your room. Instead we substituted it with a beverage vending machine on the first floor right by the reception desk where you may enjoy ice-cold soft drinks at reasonable prices. You can buy also snacks, beer, sparkling wine and different other wines at the reception desk.


non-allergy bed-linen

Non allergy-linen is standard in all our rooms.

night entrance

With your room key you can always enter the building through the entrance in the back. Therefore you put your key at the black field with the red light at the right side.

non-smoking rooms

We ask you not to smoke in your room. In case of violation we will charge a fee of 120€ for the additional cleaning.


payment methods

As payment methods we accept Visa, MasterCard, Debit Cards, Maestro and Cash.


If your pillow is to big/small for you, you can order another one at the reception desk and we will gladly bring it into your room at your convenience.



Our reception desk is occupied at the the following hours: Mo.-Fr. 9 am to 6 pm and on weekends by appointment or a prior call.
Due to the current situation, the opening hours can vary and there it may be overlooked that these are not updated everywhere at all times. We are only human! Thank you for your understanding!
To be on the safe side, just give us a call and while we have a nice conversation with you, we can tell you the most current times.



Since nowadays almost everyone has a cell phone, therefore there is no need for phones in the rooms. If you need to make a call anyhow, you can use our in-house mobile telephone at the reception desk.


  1. Turn on the television and switch it to channel 0.
  2. Switch on the receiver (green/orange light must be on). It will take a few seconds before you see the program on the TV.
  3. To switch the channels, please use the remote control for the receiver (buttons CH+ and CH-).



In every room there is a bottle with “Granderwasser” . If you break or take the bottle with you, a service fee will be applied to you in the amount of 5€.


In every room and on the hallways we offer free wifi. Use the “free wifi by net365”.

You miss a point here or have any suggestions? We are thankful therefor and try our very best to change it.

Just like Elias Canetti (Bulgarian writer and Nobel Prize Winner) said:

"You never know what will happen if something changes.
But do you know what will happen if it won’t be changed?"
