This historic hotel in a small quaint town allows one to feel that he is living in a past century. The rooms and common areas were especially clean and well appointed. The owners took great care and attended every detail. It was our first night in Germany and a experience that we will cherish forever. Please consider this hotel in your itinerary. The hotel is a little hard to locate- on a street just off the main road and parking is at a premium. These are minor difficulties that are so out-weighed by the ambiance of this place.
The staff were so gracious and accommodating for our larger family.
Fun little historic hotel Due to the Historic structure, the floor boards were extremely loud, but it wasn't a huge problem.
Quaint, comfortable, convenient. A treasure.
Staff very accommodating. We arrived late, but key was waiting. I asked for milk after stores were closed, and they promptly gave me a carton. Breakfast was very good. the hotel and decor were very charming. Noisy outside the hotel.
Beautiful old building; great adjoining restaurant; right next to beautiful old monastery/church; helpful staff Parking was difficult, but once we were told about the free parking about two blocks from the hotel, it was fine
Clean, neat, tidy, friendly, in a beautiful building, in a very picturesque area.
Our stay at Hotel Blaues Hau was wonderful. The hotel is in a great location right in the center of Otterberg. And Otterberg is a charming town. The hotel is quaint, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The buffet breakfast is fabulous. We also enjoyed the restaurant for dinner, and the food was delicious. The hotel staff was wonderful as well. We look forward to our next visit to Otterberg, and stay at Hotel Blaues Haus!!!
The lack of air conditioning or fans to circulate the hot air.
Great location and quaint hotel in a wonderfully quaint village. This was the perfect Germany get away.
Location of hotel is excellent!! I would have liked a double bed since I booked a double room. Two people sleeping together on those twin beds are ridiculous. Had to sleep like brother and sister rather than husband and wife!
secured parking with a gate no view but great breakfast buffet
I stayed at this hotel because it was the closest to the local hospital. My boyfriend and I had gone to Germany on holiday, when he got a case of pancreatitis and had to have his gall bladder removed. I chose this hotel because it was very central in Kaiserslautern, and only a 10 minute walk to the hospital. The staff were amazing. They all spoke English very well, and were very understanding when I had to extend my stay several days after my original departure time. Breakfast is included, which was great. The hotel is located downtown, within walking distance of several restaurants, a grocery store, and park where they had a carnival and other fun things on the weekend. If we ever went back to K-town, I would stay at this hotel again! They advertised free wi-fi, but it was only available in one of the buildings that make up this hotel. They did have a computer in the breakfast room that was free for guests to use though.
Everything was fantastic. The hotel staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. The room was great. I stayed for nearly a month, and the room was spacious enough to be comfortable for that extended length of time. The location is fabulous. In addition to being close to the pedestrian area, there are several restaurants within a couple of blocks.
The rooms were spotless, the breakfast was excellent and staff very helpful
The hotel staff and the breakfast. There wasn't an alarm clock available. The front desk closed by 2130 and if I came back to the hotel after that I couldn't request a wake up call. It would have been nice to have an alarm clock available to set for myself.
friendly staff,good breakfast and great acess to city center.
the hotel was comfortable and warm and near our son who we went to visit
It was quite, clean and within walking of dinning and shopping> The staff leaves at 10:00 pm but I did not need them.
The people were friendly. Towels were old. Garbage was not taken daily from the room.
Great value. Staff very attentive.
outstanding. one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Really friendly and helpfull staff, clean, safe place, close to the air base. Just perfect a little bit warmer rooms
friendly helpful staff
Not bad but a little bit expensive for such quality. Free parking. Need to be renovated.
Due to vehicle breakdown in Austria we were delayed for 24 hours but the hotel were happy to change our booking when I phoned them at 4:30pm on 21 August. Also when we finally arrived on 22 August, they were happy to provide hot meals in the restaurant even though it was only 15 minutes before it was due to close. I don't think an English 3 star hotel would have treated us so well. The only problem was being woken at 5:30am by a large transport jet landing at the nearby US airbase! However, there is not much the hotel can do about that!
The heat was not working in our room, so it was cold, especially the floor... however, the blanket/comforters were amazingly warm so we dealt with it ... the hotel is so quaint and everything is lovely about staying there... it feels like an escape to an adorable cottage. needed heat in the room
Large "american style" beds, each room had a balcony, great resteraunt, staff very friendly and helpful. Showers a bit small, but not unusual for Europe.
everything was terrific nice people thanks
The breakfast buffet was very nice with a good selection of breads, fruits, cereals, eggs, drinks, etc. Good for families with children. Walk to hotel room was very far from parking and had to go up many steps in narrow places. Walkway to hotel room was smoke-filled and room was not smoke free. Not pleasant. Room was full of extra beds with rough bedding. Beds were far too soft to sleep comfortably - with absolutely no support. Room had extra furniture and refrigerators in it like it was a storage room of some sort. Internet Wi-Fi not available in room... only in hotel lobby. Compared to every other city/town in Germany I visited, the price was too high for room & service received.
The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable, they had modern facilities and the restaurant was fantastic! the stairwell on the third floor was a little difficult due to missing handrail
Great location Comfort Price
The location, the staff, being able to bring our dog with. The room was furnished with old U.S. Military furniture that was probably sold at a Defense Reutilization Management Office (DRMO) auction. The U.S. Air Force property lables were still inside the drawers.
Great hotel for kids, the breakfast is excellent, and the staff are friendly and helpful.
Somewhere completely different, real attention to detail it has been stunningly refurbished. Warm welcome and very clean.
The design elements were excellent. It really makes the most of being an old prison. Complete with black and white striped curtains and towels, the hotel was fun to stay at. We stayed in one of the comfort rooms and it was great, though a little small. The clerk was a little cold upon arrival. It may have been because we are Americans and were speaking English to each other, though I tried to speak in German for all of the check-in process. Also the pillows were quite thin. Other than that, everything was great!
I stayed in a cell room, and it was sparse as a prison cell should be. It was comfortable for what it was suppose to be. A nice breakfast buffet. The price for the cell rooms was a little expensive.
Novelty factor of sleeping in a cell. Clean & modern. Communal showers. No Wi-fi in rooms. Breakfast - would be better with hot food options.
The hotel looks good, is very clean and staff are helpful and welcoming. My room (cell room) was basic but comfortable. Very good breakfast. Wifi available in the reception area. Nice atmosphere in the hotel.
The hotel was really nice and modern inside yet kept lots of the original prison features. Very clean throughout. I would have preferred the bed to be a double, rather than two singles pushed together.
The Hotel was very beautiful and the room was very comfortable. It was interesting to stay in a converted prison. The parking; they seemed to have enough when we checked in, but they had people that wernt staying at the hotel park in in the lot.
It was a very unique experience staying in a former prison. Barb Wire, white walls, breakfast buffet was good. easy to find. a cool hotel no tv in the rooms
Comfortable room, friendly staff, walking distance to downtown and other activites, WIFI available in lobby. Decent breakfast buffet. While WIFI was available in the public area, it would have been nice to have it in the room.
The hotel staff was friendly and courteous. The hotel was clean and easy to find. The cells were larger than we thought! Fun place to stay with High School group!!
The stafff was very nice.
Great hotel, very kind staff, room perfectly clean : highly recommanded!!
Excellent contact and service, the boss and his wife are very kind and do everything to ease one's stay in their hotel. Restaurant/bar downstairs very convenient. Wifi available (fon) for free in the rooms.
The staff was very accommodating. The food was excellent.
The Hospitalty from the owner was fantastic. Spotless Clean Rooms. The food was wonderful.
I picked this hotel because it was reasonably priced and conveniently located across the street from a train station. What I found was the best hotel that I have ever been in. It is really a family-run hotel/bed & breakfast/restaurant/community gathering spot. The hotel is new, converted from a previous tavern in May 2009. It's setting is beautiful, the train station across the street is really just a local spur and so there is no commotion, just convenience. Gilbert, the owner, and his wife somehow keep all of this under excellent control and manage to be extremely pleasant and caring. The food is well priced and excellent. The room was large by European standards, spotless and the furniture new. I'd go again in a heartbeat.
comfortable & convenient location, very friendly staff, facilities & food both excellent.
This is a wonderful small hotel which describes itself as a "Gastro Pub". It has a very friendly owner who is a great chef and, a bonus for us, spoke very good English. The rooms are a recent addition to an older building and ours was huge. In fact it was two rooms so we had two TVs, four beds, a dining table and a large balcony/patio. The evening meal, chosen from an English menu, was excellent both in taste and presentation. The breakfast was the usual German far of rolls, ham, cheese etc. but, again, the owner had take she effort to ensure everything was beautifully presented. Plenty of parking on the hotel grounds.
Spacious room in a nice renovated hotel. The free internet connection is ok, not superb but good enough for email and browsing. An egg and some fresh fruit would make the breakfast even better.
the friendliness and efficiency of the staff made for a very enjoyable stay the atmosphere in the dining room was relaxed, the meals where on the large side but excellent value, the room we had was spacious and very clean
What a wonderful hotel and experience! The views are gorgeous and the rooms are extremely clean. Wish we could have stayed longer. Our daughter loved the real-live storks in the small, but lovely nature reserve (we did too). The breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the staff the most enjoyable and helpful we have ever experienced. We would recommend to families and friends and they are dog-friendly! Hope to return before leaving Belgium. NONE!
The staff was very friendly and the restaurant was excellent.
Friendly staff, meals & particularly breakfast was excellent
Warm hospitality, very clean and comfortable, good, quiet location, fantastic breakfasts, wonderful staff. very small showers
The hotel was located in a convenient location in a small quaint village that gave you a true picture of a German village. There was a small supermarket just around the corner with a bakery attached. The rooms were very nice and seemed to be very clean each day. The only thing I can think of is that the breakfast was served at the same time that I needed to be picked up for work each day, so I only was able to enjoy it on the day that I left. Since many people staying there are usually military people moving into the area, it might be more helpful to make breakfast earlier so that all may enjoy it. (especially since it is included in the price)
I wanted to cancel my reservation because I was unfamiliar with the area when I made the reservation. I arrived very late and a young woman helped me find my room. Parking is a definite problem. I managed to scratch my car on the cement post. Because of late arrival I was unable to use the internet. The staff was off the next morning but the restaurant settled the bill. Room was very clean, warm, and TV worked well. No water glass or soap in bathroom.
Good Price for full apartment. Good for long term stay
It was clean and affordable. It offered a good breakfast buffet at a reasonable price.
The staff were very very friendly and welcoming.
Comfortable room. It was difficult to find reception. All outside doors were locked (we had to ring the bell) even at 7 pm. Restaurant was closed.
The owner and family were very nice and friendly. Made the stay very pleasant.
Hotel staff was very friendly!
Clean and quiet location. Good restaurant.
Beautifull wellness area!
Friendly, accommodating staff. Quiet, comfortable room. Lack of refrigerator & microwave will have me looking for another hotel next time.
The bar and beer garden were very nice. The breakfast was very good and the staff were helpful, although few spoke any form of English. I found this strange considering the large number of american servicemen and their families who live and visit in this area. I found our room to be dark and dismal. The morning after our arrival I could see in the daylight that the room was not very clean. There were dirty marks all over the floor, The final straw was the piece of nose dirt on the wallpaper. We left early and got into another hotel!
This was my second stay at this "Triditional German Hotel", it is increasingly harder and harder to find original German Hospatality due to chain hotels. Bottomline: The best experience I've evre had in any European Country. I love this place! COL Michael D. Hughes LG USA
away from the crazy crowds no - we really enjoyed our stay
Overall, I had a pleasant stay. I just wish that late check out would've been an option. The shower had a plumbing issue. It would not drain properly which caused us to shower in standing water. Kind of grossed me out.
We didn't arrive until 2am due to flight delays, so we were thrilled to find clear instructions for entry upon late arrival. The room was larger than expected, with mini fridge and clean bathroom. Great value, short drive to Ramstein AFB.
Wonderful experience. Octavia was a wonderful hostess. The room was a very good size for 3 people and very clean and comfortable.
The owners and there staff where just great and so freindly.The location was perfect for me and the rooms and the hotel where very clean.I will be staying at this hotel the next time i travel there and consider this a great find.
Staff and service were excellent. Clean, modern, and nicely decorated hotel. Breakfast was great. Highly recommended.
Very nice place and very very nice people. Thanks you Octavia
Everything - seriously. Nothing
Everything was good, nothing stood out in particular Nothing
Very quiet location, excellent hotel, clean, new and great staff Nothing
I loved the screens on the windows! No kidding, it is not often that you find this in Europe and bugs are becoming a real problem, so this is indeed a plus! The staff was amazingly helpful, kind and so welcoming. Location is wonderful as the hotel is off the main road, so rooms are quiet and peaceful. Restaurants are fairly close by, so no inconvenience there without one in the hotel. Room was spacious, immaculate, and tastefully decorated with convenience of the guest in mind. Internet access readily available! Just a wonderful place to stay. English is spoken though we were allowed to practice our German and appreciated her patience with that. Breakfast buffet is more than generous. We loved it and will be back!
The owners (Octavia and Herman) were just great. Very friendly and helpful. The rooms was very clean and comfortable. Great breakfast. The homemade jam and jelly was terrific. They were sold out when I tried to stay an extra night :O)
Dreamy comfortable bed, excellent breakfast buffet, friendly and helpful staff, small yet quite functional bathroom, great value for a low price. Would definitely stay here again!
The staff was exceptionally friendly and accomodating. The location was central to the city. A wonderful experience.
Incredible friendly staff. Excellent rooms.
Friendly staff and lovely breakfast Squeaky floorboards, just in one part ... very noisy! Loved all the rest though.
Excellent, outstanding facility at a great price. Large, spacious rooms with plug and play free Internet service. Breakfast is a nice selection of breads, fruits, jams and other things and they are very accommodating should you need to eat earlier than the official start time of 7:00 a.m. As can be the case in many smaller hotels, there is no staff there much of the day, but aside from from, this is a terrific place to stay with a large, comfortable room which is atypical for Europe.
The breakfast was very good and they even packed me a to-go bag the last morning that I left at 4 am.....the bag was outside my door! Not enough towels......and none of the directions in the room were in English...only German
Exceptional service- the staff was very friendly and helpful
Rooms were spacious clean and the staff was friendly and efficient. The breakfast excellent.
This is a family run hotel that rates high on service, warmth, and accommodation. Being that it was wintery, cold, with snow on the ground and everywhere, I liked that it was very centrally-located to numerous restaurants, bakeries, cafes, post office, and shops. I could walk to go get dinner after a long work day. I was also able to do some leisurely shopping and grab some italian ice cream. Breakfast was excellent and they opened it up early for the one day I had to get in to work by 6:30am. Internet (wired) was free and fast in my room and helped out with the homesickness. My room and closet were huge and spacious...more like a mini suite with a sitting area and work desk as well as refrigerator, microwave, sink, etc. My room did not have adequate room darkening curtains to block out the streetlight and moonlight. There simply wasn't enough of it to go across the entire width of the windows. Between this and the fact that I could clearly hear conversations of passersby on the street, I did get concerned about my own privacy. I think I will ask to change rooms next time...away from the street and not on the first floor. Also, no in-room safe.
It was very clean, simple and more than adequate fo rmy needs. The staff were extremely friendly and addressed issues very quickly. The rooms were spacious, clean, light, well decorated and furnished and the bathroom was superb. The heating/hot water loss on 2 occasions was unfortunate. However, the hotel dealt with this issue immediately and offered me a complimentary gift as an apology. The only added feature I would suggest is more towels and addition of face cloths (flannels)
Attention of the owners- Chista and Michael, very good people.
just toured Landstudl and Ramstein would recommend this hotel to any one and everyone
I liked the staff,very friendly in the morning during breakfast.
The staff was so helpful and accommodating! Easy walk from the train station and close to delicious restaurants and fun bars!
It is in a convenient location and has a nice German style breakfast. Staff was nice and courteous. The facility is dated and the rooms need renovation. Sound on TV did not work. Their focus seems to be on their Cafe and not the hotel.
The rooms were very large and just a short walk from the train station.
Lovely staff. Adjoining a wonderful cake and coffee shop run by the same ladies. Excellent breakfast with freshly cooked eggs to order. Good value. Secure parking. Just a shame the coffee shop was only open until 6.30pm, however there were restaurants close by for evening meals.
Nice staff, fantastic coffee bathroom is very clean but should be renovated, the shower enclosure is difficult to open/close.
Personal attention, willingness to help, friendliness of staff. Excellent breakfast! Very convenient to walk in town, private parking available in gated back lot. Attached to bakery which is also run by the hotel owners. Great family type atmosphere. Wonderful Wintergarten and I'm sure that the courtyard will be beautiful in the spring and summer. If we get hte opportunity to return to this area, we will definately stay at the Hotel Goldinger.
Hotel Goldinger is by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at while in Europe. It is gorgeous and beautiful!! The beds are extremely comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and very nice! The breakfast room and cafe were beautiful places to enjoy the complimentary breakfast. Wonderful atmosphere throughout the whole hotel. The suite was overall comfortable and wonderful! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Great value for money!!!! It took a while to figure out how to close the shutters but my husband and I did and they provided a nice private room. Fantastic idea!!
Very friendly and accomodating. A very nice little hotel in a quiet area.
Great staff, very friendly and they all speak good english. Very few rooms which gives it a nice bed and breakfast feel. Cafe has good food and great desserts. Reserved a suite and received a standard room instead.
Everything! The bed was very comfortable, the breakfast was outstanding, and the staff both friendly and efficient. A little noise due to its proximity of the highway but this was outweighed by the positives of the hotel.
Good location, wonderful restaurant, friendly staff and super breakfast.
This hotel is clean and comfortable, and has a very convenient and nicely run restaurant and bar. Highly recommended for business if you need to stay close to Ramstein Air Force Base. The only drawback to this hotel is its proximity to the autobahn.
it was okay, a little pricey for the double room
Very friendly staff. They spoke great English. WiFi was free and excellent signal. Very Very nice room. And very well priced.
Breakfast was good
The buffet was good. Choice of freshly baked eggs and/or waffles. Very clean room. For being located next to the highway, the noise could hardly be heard inside the room, when the windows were closed. Had a fan in the room. Also, rooms with a/c available for an additional price.
Nice staff and super internet!
Friendly hotel staff and lovely resturant with very good food!
The staff was fantastic. Friendly and very accomodating. They helped me out in a very difficult situation. It was perfect.
Loved the service. Free breakfast and the restaraurant at the hotel was very classy. Great spa as well Didn't like that the spa wasn't open when it was suppose to be. No pool either.
Location was great and staff was friendly and helpful. The beds were VERY comfortable. Lack of Air Conditioning...but with the cool night air and the windows it was still fairly comfortable.
The best Landstuhl has to offer, great location, quiet, walking distance to the restored castle with overview of the city; within walking distance to the town. Highly recommend no
The room was clean and spacious and the staff was very accomodating.
The village of Otterberg. reception next to dining tables, had to fix bedplanks, hat to replace lightbulb ourselves, uninterested staff at breakfast
Convenient car parking, lift
Very nice people... very patient with our large group.
Staff were friendly and very easy checking in to the hotel. A very nice hotel for the money. Only stayed one night and everything was great!
The food, the professionalism o the staff, the comfortable rooms and modern decor. Finding the parking area was difficult. Clearer signs would help
Restaurant was good - a variety of freshly cooked dishes. Bedroom was small but the bed very comfortable. Bedroom was quite small. Limited range of TV channels in English - no BBC !
The rooms were comfortable and modern. The location was good and the area surrounding the hotel was beautiful. We did not get cleaning service a lot of the time we were there. We never knew whether or not we would get it or have clean towels. The breakfast was okay, but did not have much variety.
