    The welcoming desk: friendly and efficient. The evening meal on the terrace delicious (Outstanding ox-tail soup, Tartar of salmon with a salad of green and white asparagus, and a very delicious German white wine) A spacious single room overlooking the Rhine river and the "Mittlere Rheinbrücke". All in all, a very pleasant stay.
