This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hotel is very nice. Staff is more than friendly and informative. I stayed for 3 nights. They kept my luggage for a full day for free. Breakfast is included. It is little bit far from train station but right in the center of city. Transport tickets are available on reception. Rooms were quiet and comfortable. It was nice to stay there.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I Got some nice impressions about draecke frm past time. Butr our experience has been so far from what we heard about it.
Location is really god, breakfast is aceptable but rooms state is really terrible

The main fault is so clear, they gave us both rooms just in the same condition the guest before us left the place, so dirty is the word, ITS A DIRTY PLACE.
They even didnt clean the second day, so we will never come back
