Why & how we booked Lodge Fiester Hannes

After just a few nights on the pretty 4 Seasons Cap-Ferrat, we flew to Germany to go to household. We flew Lufthansa enterprise class from Good to Frankfurt, however I received’t be reviewing that flight, since I’ve reviewed Lufthansa’s regional enterprise class so many occasions.

We had been assembly up with my mother and her associate in Germany (they’d simply flown over from the US), and our first cease was visiting my aunt, cousins, and many others. Each of my dad and mom are from small cities in Germany, nearly an hour drive outdoors of Frankfurt.

Rising up we’d spend most of our summers in Germany, and I’ve fond reminiscences of that. Whereas I’ve all the time stayed with my aunt when visiting the world, she solely has one spare visitor bed room, and my mother and her associate stayed along with her, so we volunteered to remain at a resort.

The catch is that these small cities don’t actually have main resorts, however fairly have simply small visitor homes and inns. The closest main chain resort is a Vacation Inn Categorical in Siegen (a few 30 minute drive away), although there are many visitor homes within the Haiger space, the place my household is from.

My aunt beneficial Lodge Fiester Hannes, which has a restaurant she has eaten at many occasions earlier than. We determined to go along with that, primarily as a result of all of the rooms right here have personal bogs, which isn’t the case at most different properties within the space.

This resort is positioned in Burbach-Holzhausen, just some minutes from the place my aunt lives in Allendorf. The resort solely has 5 rooms, and the room that was out there for our date was the second most premium room. That room retailed for 140 EUR per night time, after which we added breakfast to our fee for 19 EUR per night time.

There’s one thing so refreshing and private about staying at a visitor home fairly than a resort. We may park proper outdoors the doorway to the resort, and as we pulled up one of many extremely pleasant workers got here out and confirmed who we had been, after which walked us straight to our room.

She didn’t ask for an ID and stated we may simply present a bank card after we checked out. Be aware that no bank card was required to order the room, so it’s sort of cool to be someplace with the “honor system” on the subject of paying in your keep.

She additionally requested what time we wished to have breakfast. It’s not like there was a buffet setup right here, however fairly somebody involves the breakfast room and personally prepares breakfast for you everytime you need it.

Lodge Fiester Hannes breakfast

Each mornings we loved breakfast on the resort, and it was actually like somebody making ready breakfast for you of their house.

I had heard {that a} good new restaurant opened on the town, and my gosh, this was such a enjoyable meal.

We celebrated my aunt’s birthday right here with a few dozen relations. We may sit outdoors, and the climate was merely excellent.

We had a beautiful keep at Lodge Fiester Hannes. Now, I’m not suggesting vacationers needs to be flocking to the Haiger space, except you could have a purpose to be there. However for us it was the right place to remain.

The room was clear and properly maintained, the breakfast was nice, and most significantly, the workers had been genuinely hospitable. It’s good to go someplace and really feel like an precise visitor fairly than only a quantity, and that’s an space the place this place excelled. We’ll undoubtedly be staying right here once more.
