View from all the hotel's guest rooms

We're putting this one in the “find” category. It's a hotel that has it all: great value, good design, waterside location, family ownership, and a very warm welcome.

This is such a terrific value we felt the need to let all our web visitors know about the nine-room Pension Havelfloss, directly on the Havel river in the old city of Brandenburg.

Our room was on two levels; sitting room below, bedroom above. A clever arrangement is that the flat screen TV is attached to a vertical pipe and can be easily hoisted or lowered via a rope and pulley so it's visible from the sitting room below or from the bedroom above. When it's time to go to bed simply haul the TV up the pipe and take the remote with you up the stairs.

We paid €79.5 for our double room with breakfast in a bright, cheery room with the same view as the photo above. In addition to the buffet, we took the young owner up on his offer of scrambled addition of course to the usual muesli, cereal, boiled eggs, yogurt, rolls, jam, cheeses, sliced meats, juice, coffee, etc.
