    4/5 Good

    Having a breakfast and soup for dinner included was a surprise, a great bonus. The room was just okay.

    Difficult to move luggages to second floor as there is no elevator and the road is not smooth for wheels. Room and common area were not clean.

    5/5 Excellent

    Cozy Spot

    Got stranded in Franz Josef Glacier when the bridge collapsed, it was a cozy, chill place to hang for a few rainy day# complete with a fireplace. The kitchen is large, but I was initially quite stumped by the induction oven.

    Convenient location, on the quieter side of the small city. It is within walking distance to most of Franz Josef Glacier. Stayed in the individual room with its own bathroom, and got the corner room. The place is a bit outdated, with dead insects. The wi-fi worked but it was not very good. The place is as clean as it can be, except the carpets weren't that great. Beyond that, the amenities are ok and the bed was comfortable. The free breakfast was decent. It was an ok place to stay for the price and convenience.
