Excellent Location Close to Everything

Guests at Falstaff can’t ask for a better location for a hotel. The city centre is practically around the corner and many attractions are also located within walking distance. Guests who want to travel to attractions further away can easily do so by walking only three minutes to a train station. Despite the central location, the hotel is very quiet.
