There were several good restaurants nearby as well. The hotel is small and has 8 rooms - ours was comfortable although not large. The breakfasts were...

Stern am Rathaus displays many qualities: perfect location, in the center, just off the Alt Markt Chritsmas Market. The breakfast was excellent. The room was a bit tiny but still very nice and clean and the bed was of very good quality. based on all of this, I found the hotel prices excellent.
