Germany Tour: Barbara D.

Jerry, I make the following comments about the tour itinerary and hotels:

Berlin
Hotel was fantastic. Great location, superb décor, fantastic service and unbelievable breakfasts. They were terrific in allowing us to check in early following our 24 hour flight.

Dresden
Beautiful location and only a 25 Euro taxi fare from the station. Great food (we had dinner there), and service. Breakfast once again marvellous.

Nuremberg
Again – fantastic location – next to the station and across the road from the old city. Great service and terrific breakfast.

Munich
Once again a great location and less then 10 Euro taxi fare from the station. Breakfast was, as usual, great. We were looking forward to having the two days there to get some laundry done – unfortunately as one of the days was Sunday we couldn’t achieve this. The shops were closed on the Sunday as well – a bit of a shock for us. We saw a great deal and enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately we hadn’t specified a non-smoking room and it absolutely reeked (of cigar smoke).

Cologne
Fantastic location. Very convenient to the station as well. The service was great (they sorted out our laundry in record time and also assisted us to find another hotel for the following night – I had miscalculated and we needed to be in Cologne two nights before our cruise started. They were booked out as some sort of trade fair had started but found us a room nearby.

Overall, the trip was fantastic. You obviously got us the hotels at great prices (in light of what I had to pay for the additional night in Cologne). They were all deservedly five star and in great locations, both convenient to the railway stations and the main attractions. While the Hotel at Pillnitz was a little further away from the station the beautiful location more than compensated for the cost of the taxi.

Thank you for all your help. We would never have found such fantastic hotels on our own.

Regards
Barbara
