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!!!
Clean, neat, tidy, friendly, in a beautiful building, in a very picturesque area.
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.
The lack of air conditioning or fans to circulate the hot air.
Quaint, comfortable, convenient. A treasure.
The staff were so gracious and accommodating for our larger family.
Great location and quaint hotel in a wonderfully quaint village. This was the perfect Germany get away.
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.
Fun little historic hotel Due to the Historic structure, the floor boards were extremely loud, but it wasn't a huge problem.
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
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
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 hotel was comfortable and warm and near our son who we went to visit
friendly staff,good breakfast and great acess to city center.
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.
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.
The rooms were spotless, the breakfast was excellent and staff very helpful
It was quite, clean and within walking of dinning and shopping> The staff leaves at 10:00 pm but I did not need them.
Great staff, great food, great room. I forsee us becoming regulars at the restaurant. Not really.
We chose this hotel, because our family lived a block away while I was stationed in the area with the Air Force two decades ago. We always loved going to the Schlaefer Gasthaus for dinner. Our trip down memory lane lived up to, and exceeded, our every expectation. The food is some of the best in Germany. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The accomodations and restaurant are in the traditional style, which is what we have always liked.
That it was clean and close to the train station and my destination. Staff was very helpful and it was very affordable and classy!
I would not stay at this hotel again. The proprietress was unhappy that I had booked through a site rather than directly with them and expressed this up front, then was unfriendly for the entirety of my stay. The hotel itself sits in a nice little town and has a decent restaurant, but the rooms felt more like dorm rooms and the bath linens were threadbare. I did not feel at all comfortable at this hotel and while I spend a great deal of time in Landstuhl on business, I will avoid this particular lodging from now on.
This was a traditional German hotel, on a quiet side street in a large village, on the edge of a forest, so our stay was both relaxing and enjoyable.
Location was good. Lack of service, unwilling to fix a (main) light that was out, parking, price was high for what you get.
Traditional German hotel with good breakfast. A restaurant in the hotel. Near to US military base. Our fan in our room was broken and there was no replacement, luckily it was not very hot. Our room has a low beam above our bed, so had to be careful not to hit our head against the beam. Limited hotel parking but there was a huge public parking near the hotel.
The location was close to Vogelweh and Kaiserslatern but with a small village atmosphere. The complementary breakfast was as good as it gets in Germany. The staff was friendly and provided great service.
I conducted business during the day; my family enjoyed the hotel restaurant during the day (lunch, desserts). We enjoyed dinner one night of our stay at the hotel restaurant; awesome food..! Main entrance to certain hotel rooms was through the restaurant. While not ideal, the staff is used to it and assists customers as necessary.
We stayed there twice on this vacation and it was great both times. We recommend it.
I attended a conference so I really enjoyed being able to just wake up and be there. The room and the breakfast were lovely. The local area is quiet and pleasant. The staff was helpful but not overly warm. The food in the restaurant was amazing and well priced. Drinkers in the bar were a bit loud on Saturday night but I guess that is to be expected. Also, they left the hotel sign on all night long and it was just outside my window which was slightly distracting.
Staff were nice, room cozy and quaint.
The main building had character and food was good. We were placed in a room in the annexe that had no character at all. The room was situated on ground floor by a road that was quite busy. A car park was also situated close by and at 4 am a market stall was being erected which was noisy and kept us awake. Full of American military personell so did not feel that we were in Germany. A shame.
Wonderful experience. Octavia was a wonderful hostess. The room was a very good size for 3 people and very clean and comfortable.
Everything - seriously. 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)
Staff and service were excellent. Clean, modern, and nicely decorated hotel. Breakfast was great. Highly recommended.
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!
Very nice place and very very nice people. Thanks you Octavia
Everything was good, nothing stood out in particular Nothing
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.
Very quiet location, excellent hotel, clean, new and great staff Nothing
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
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.
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 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.
Novelty factor of sleeping in a cell. Clean & modern. Communal showers. No Wi-fi in rooms. Breakfast - would be better with hot food options.
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 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!
Somewhere completely different, real attention to detail it has been stunningly refurbished. Warm welcome and very clean.
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!!
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.
The Hotel is very clean and confortable. It is also close to the center and several good restaurants, only a few blocks of the walk area where the restaurants are. The hotel is simple but yet confortable, like a good family house.
It was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. It was a little pricey considering Kaiserslautern is not that busy and the hotel was pretty empty.
Friendly people and good location They did not have free Internet access
Great hotel, very kind staff, room perfectly clean : highly recommanded!!
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
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 Hospitalty from the owner was fantastic. Spotless Clean Rooms. The food was wonderful.
comfortable & convenient location, very friendly staff, facilities & food both excellent.
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.
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.
The staff was very accommodating. The food was excellent.
The stafff was very nice.
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.
Beautifull wellness area!
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
The owner and family were very nice and friendly. Made the stay very pleasant.
Clean and quiet location. Good restaurant.
Friendly, accommodating staff. Quiet, comfortable room. Lack of refrigerator & microwave will have me looking for another hotel next time.
Hotel staff was very friendly!
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!
The hotel was nestled in the woods with great running trails as well as horses and cows. We happened to get there the last night of a jazz festival, and there was a band playing. The music was great and the beer garden is huge. Also, great breakfast the next morning.
After 2 nights in characterless chain hotels in the industrial parts of Verona & Zurich, Hotel Bremerhof was just what we needed. All 4 of us slept very well in comfy beds in the quiet countryside, and enjoyed the buffet breakfast. Personally, I also enjoyed my morning run in the beautiful forest and the misty views from the Humburg Tower.
Room on second floor large, airy and fresh. Outdoor bier garden with friendly atmosphere and good food. staff friendly and speak English well.Pleasantly surpised by quality for price. Nice walks in the woods. Would have stayed longer if not booked.
The location was very nice. It is located in a park with walking trails. The staff was pleasant and certainly made us feel welcome. The food was excellent. Wish we had stayed longer - will definitely go back.
View, and good environtment
Wonderful location in the country. So quiet. Had a good dinner. Staff was friendly and helpful.
I liked the beer garden outside. It was nice just to have a lazy day and relax and have a few beers while I ate in the beer garden.
Surrounded by woods. The owner was very helpful. He provided transportation to two events. Nice restaurant & good food, and many fine, cold breakfast foods--included with room. Would stay here again!!!
Great size family room, recently refurbished with fantastic ensuite bathroom and tasteful decor. Outside a great beer garden and childrens play area. Also it was out of town , we went walking in to the forest where there was also swings and slides for children. Very beautiful area.Staff very friendly. No it was very impressive
Our family room was a good size for 4 people and well prepared but the room facilites were spartan. There was no coffee machine or kettle. This place is foremost a restaurant and beer garden with rooms attached. It has none of the facilites of a hotel and is more like a large B&B. To get to the top floor where the rooms are you have to navigate up 3 stories of stairs that are tired, stained and smell.
The hotel is in a very pleasant location and easy to find from the motorway. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food is good and the staff are friendly and helpful.
Beautiful views and many patios and porches to sit and enjoy the scenery. Need to carry your backs up a fair amount of stairs.
The hotel was easy to find. Our room was bright, clean and had a good view. The food was good and the staff were pleasant and helpful
A relaxing location to stay with great scenery after a day's work with comfortable rooms which are spotlessly clean.
A very quiet, peaceful hotel in a small village with views over open countryside. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
Personnel, location - beautiful!
location, good friendly hotel
good large room
location in the town centre, at the start of the pedestrian area. Good for seeing the town without moving the car. quite hard to find due to its situation, difficult to park until the hotel provided the parking pass for the underground place.
Silence place, breakfast ok. Beautiful small village
friendly staff very noisy street with a high level of auto traffic late into the night which made sleeping difficult. With no AC, as with most hotels in this area, windows need to be open to get cool air into the room.
The room was a good size and very clean, with very good bathroom facilities. Room was too cold at night, and inadequate bedding was provided.
I knew the town more than 50 years ago and that's why I stopped there on my way to Sweden!! It's for geriatric seniors,;which I am most decidedly not
The room was very clean, in the center of town, with a small sitting area and a television with CNN.
The management was very friendly and helpful
Staff was friendly. The room was clean. outdated style, and the stairway smelled of smoke.
we felt that the hotel personal really cared about us
really friendly english speaking owner, allowed secure off road parking for motorcycle,lift,breakfast very good lots of choice,situated in a pleasent small spa town
Excellent food. Friendly hostess. Parking very nearby.
Pleasant, helpful staff. Good breakfast. Good location for visiting surrounding area. Good off-road car park nearby. Renovations seem to have been going on for some time.
The friendliness of the owners, the cleanliness of the room mnd the general atmosphere
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.
Great hotel for kids, the breakfast is excellent, and the staff are friendly and helpful.
everything was terrific nice people thanks
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
Not bad but a little bit expensive for such quality. Free parking. Need to be renovated.
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.
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
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!
Great location Comfort Price
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.
Really pleasant and helpful reception. Room comfortable but a little spartan but then again it is not an expensive hotel
A terrific, lovely small hotel. Our room had a bright, airy feeling, with a magnificent view of the castle which is on top of an adjoining hill - it certainly fit the name "BurgBlick". The beds were comfortable with a very nice bathroom. Everything was spotlessly clean. All of the staff was very cheerful and helpful. As a bonus, their restaurant is very good, with a diversified menu, tasty food, friendly servers and reasonable prices. We consider this hotel to be an excellent value.
I recommend this small Hotel. The view to the Castle is very nice. Nearby Bad Kreuznach is great for shopping.I'll stay at the Hotel again.
