          Perfectly nestled by great tourist attractions and near transportation to get around Europe. Decor was amazing, staff superbly professional. The brewery attached is a great place for true German lunch.

          The Dom garage next door -- is it a secure/private/controlled (eg gate) facility please? Thanks

          To my knowledge this is a public garage (underground) . It is probably as secure as any public garage is in a German city. Please contact the hotel for further details.
          Does this hotel have a pool?
