I stayed here only one night but would definetely not like to come back!
According to the Hotel's internet information some very few parts of the building might indeed be from the 14th century and there is indeed is some historically inspired interiors but cleaning methods are also historically inspired!
Checking the little closets next to the bed we found receipts and hygiene articles of former guests in the drawers who must have stayed weeks there weeks before us!
The pseudo-cozy knight furs on cheap leather armchairs were full of old (knight) hair.
The view is out to the big parking lot.
Room was a little bit over 2.30cm high - depressingly low ceiling!
There is absolutely NO noise reduction from other people's footsteps from the room above yours.
Wireless does not work because of the ancient old and thick walls, as we were told.
The "fancy" hidden in patinated backgrounds for the TV is a simple wooden box from the Bauhaus with some dark paint to make it look old.
Breakfast is at youth hostel standard, while seated on hard and heavy dark-wood chairs (historical inspired!), covered with the above mentioned funny furs as wel.
Modern hot beverages such as cappucino and latte machiato are served as ready-made dried powder.
An interesting hotel experience, not really midieval and not cozy and not quiet at all, absolutely overpriced!
