this place is historically where GDR political leadership vacationed behind closed doors and fences.
the fabulous location on the largest island of germany (can you correct the name to Cliff Hotel Rügen, w/ an umlaut please?) is probably its biggest asset.
the hotel aims to deliver a five-star atmosphere, and admittedly gets close. it might not look it from the outside (owning to its 1978 socialist construction), the interieur is charming and attractive, if a little on the antiquated side.. but very comfortable. the rooms are spacious, furnished w/ lavish chairs and sofas. they are very clean und offer amenities in the bathroom, nicely complementing the visit of the spa the hotel provides.
the elevators are small and take a long time, it is suggested to make use of the stairs, which at times is quicker. the breakfast room is quite a walk away, due to the stretched out size of the hotel, which is actually a nice walk. the breakfast offers a good variety of food and drink, w/ very attentive service.
not least of all, the hotel offers a nice path to the beach of the Baltic Sea (gated), located just a few meters away. from here you can walk along the beach up to Sellin and its beautiful pier, or down to Baabe.
overall a very nice experience.More
