I stayed at this hotel for a conference. It is right on the waterfront which is romantic to those who enjoy this. They sell great local wine. The public transport connection to Berlin is possible but complicated. Other than that, nothing special to report.

Needed some where to stay prior to flying from Berlin, whilst this hotel is approx 45km from the airport its by far the best family hotel I have stayed at in the region. Fantastic prices, facilities and superb river walks.

The hotel consists of 2 parts - old and new. We got a room in the old one and were SHOCKED - it naturally reminded me a medieval prison cell - small, tiny room with very-very(!) small window and thick walls.
