Good conditions, good price

We had a pleasant 4 nights stay at Die Sprachpension. The rooms are OK, clean, equipped with everything you need in order to serve your own breakfast and make your own coffee. Mrs. Anne, the host, is extremely nice and welcoming. I remember that we arrived very late in the night, but still she staid awake and greeted us. During our entire stay she did everything to make us feel comfortable, she even gave us trial of german language course (as we were very keen on learning german at that moment). All in all it was a good experience and at a good price.

Great stance on a great place!

Anne was a wonderful hostess. Very personal and helpful with information, directions and recommendations as to what to do. Sharing breakfast with her was delightful. The room opened to a balcony with large glass windows that gave us no privacy. The bathroom upstairs was very nice.

The Stopping Place

Room and bathroom were wonderful. And breakfast on the balcony was delicious !! (missed only an egg). Very Recommendable !! We will certainly return if we pass through again. The innkeeper is a great hostess !!

an excellent place to stay in Vogtsburg

4.6 on September 22, 2011

I recently stayed for two nights and I wish I could have stayed longer. Really comfortable contemporary facilities located in a lovely rural village setting. The host is very welcoming and very helpful and encourages every opportunity to sample German culture whether through interaction with other guests or getting out into the local country side. The accommodation is very comfortable and breakfast is excellent. The area is beautiful, the local restaurants are very good, and the German beer is excellent. In my opinion it is very good value for money. Ian W. – Australia

Wir haben einen sehr schönen Urlaub dort verbracht und uns sehr wohlgefühlt.

Very good location and very kind hostess

4.0 on September 11, 2011

Very good location, if you want to visit the area between Colmar and Freiburg. The cosy apartment we stayed in for 3 nights was fully furnished with everything necessary to feel at home and the breakfast was wonderful. Ms Kowalski was very friendly, gave us useful advice for travelling around and we were surprised to discover that with such an experimented teacher was a pleasure to have an easy talk in German even with our basic knowledge. There are many things to see in the area and it is a very good place to combine travelling with language learning.

An Outstanding Stay at The Language Guesthouse

4.6 on August 12, 2011

Anna is a outstanding host and provider to the weary traveler. The rooms were clean, the food excellent and her help in determing the sights to see, was above and beyond my expectations.

A very Nice stay at your B&B in our sommerholiday

4.0 on September 09, 2010

I can purely recommend others to stay at your B&B for a couple of days if you want to be taken well care of with a very good service and a personal and friendly talk to your breakfast and other times if you wants it. The little town and the area around it is very interesting, beautiful, quiet and very lokal. We can also recommend the cosy restaurents in this smal city and all the winefields around it. All in all a very nice and pleasent stay for 2 nights which I think we would like to do again. Anna Kowalski - thank You for all.
