    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.

    location is great, view is amazing from the river view rooms. many bars, pubs nearby. very close to the public transport too.breakfest is also very nice.

    room is a bit small, there is a bit noise from the other rooms, walls are very thin. internet wireless connection is not free inside the rooms.breakfest ends up at 10:30 in the weekends, which is a bit too early...
