ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: As I pulled up to Hotel Oderberger, my first impression was of a glorious boutique hotel that looked like a castle built on a residential city street. The main entrance leads to the front desk which overlooks a stunning 65-foot-long indoor pool surrounded by Neo-Renaissance columns, a vaulted stone ceiling and windows reminiscent of those found in churches. On the other side of the desk, a grand staircase leads to the second floor, where the view is breathtaking. The staff greeted me with a warm welcome.
GUEST QUARTERS: The guestrooms exude an old-country modern feel with a hint of bohemian charm. The bathroom was updated with a walk-in glass shower and a vintage towel warmer. My room’s high ceilings made it seem larger and brighter, with an entire wall of windows offering the option of blackout shades. There was plenty of space for two, with a double bed and separate closet spaces.
SERVICES/ AMENITIES: Aside from the stunning pool, the property features a lot of other amenities such as an underground spa with a large sauna surrounded by lounging areas for pure relaxation. The Fireplace Bar serves favorite wines and spirits from around Germany set in a cozy, sophisticated, dimly lit room — a perfect place to start or end your evening. The phenomenal breakfast buffet is served in The Restaurant, featuring an industrial-chic design, making it a fun spot to mingle with friends. The buffet offers a large selection of options accommodating all dietary restrictions and ranges from homemade pastries, waffles and omelets to a spread of fruits, cheeses and vegetables. It was a great way to start the day.
