The hotel''s service and the reception you will encounter is polite, friendly, helpful and efficient. Tastefully decorated throughout, the hotel features none of the tacky pink and white draperies and upholstery so often found in Germany and Austria. Instead, the guest rooms are furnished with Bauhaus style furniture and light-colored wood paneling. There are three price categories (and some single rooms are available); but it is definitely worth reserving one of the luxury rooms, which are large, quiet and very comfortable. Maybe you think Bauhaus furnishings don''t sound comfortable? Well, they are, with more softness--leather, wool, etc.--than you probably tend to associate with that style. And the cost of a top room (ca $250) is quite reasonable compared with New York or London prices.
There is a subway stop (Augustinerstrasse) one block away.
