This hotel is in the old city about a block from the Residenz Palace on a pedestrian street. Our cab driver managed to get his minivan right up to the front door, much to our surprise. As we walked in the front door, we were greeted by the owner—she looked at the four of us and said, "You are the double and two singles?" We agreed, and she handed us our keys right in the entranceway and pointed out the elevator. "Come down and register some time later," she told us. The wonderful smell from the kitchen that faces the very small elevator wafted around us as we took turns going up.
Our double was on the fourth floor and faced out toward the front of the building. It was not a fancy room, but it was comfortable and very clean. We had a small built-in table and two chairs, as well as our double bed, our TV had CNN, and we had a refrigerator and a safe.
The bathroom was a unique color, but the duck decorations were in surprising locations (the name of the hotel is the Golden Duck). We also had a key that got us into the hotel after 10pm. The doors are locked at that time and don't open until quite late in the morning.)
The very reasonable rate included a very thorough breakfast buffet, which included bacon that you could cook on a small griddle, eggs that you boiled in an egg boiler, lots of bread choices, with a toaster, cereal, juice, and meat and cheese.
This was a wonderful hotel and much more than I expected in a hotel in this price range. We ate dinner here both evenings and were pleased with everything we got, especially the desserts. They have a large dish of ice cream with a fresh raspberry sauce that’s out of this world. One of us ordered it the first night, and three of us ordered it on the second.
