Value for Money

5 of 5
This apartment is good value for money and was clean and warm. Myself and my travelling companions were very comfortable. It is located in a quiet residential area of Pirna. There are two supermarkets nearby. It's approximately a 20 minute walk into the centre of Pirna which is a delightful traditional town. Pirna train station is also about a 20 minute walk over the Elbe with regular train services to other cities and villages including beautiful Dresden. The hosts were very helpful and friendly.

Spacious and comfortable house in attractive area.

5 of 5
Five of us spent a most enjoyable few days at the Kraxlhuette. There was plenty of space, the beds were comfortable and the showers excellent. The village pub,Stiller Fritz, is 10 minutes walk away and does good hearty meals. There is plenty to do in the Saxon Switzerland. Our only gripe was that the internet worked intermittently.
