I spent some time in Dobel (both business and pleasure) and the "Linde" (this is how the locals call it) has always been my preferred home away from home. The owners - the Ruff family - are very welcoming and nice. The owner apparently is also the chef in the enclosed restaurant. After all meals have been served he makes his round from table to table, sits down with the guests, chats, and makes everyone feel welcome.

The rooms are very clean and basic, but offer everything you need: Shower & Toilet, TV, Closet, etc.

During my last stay I have been told that they are implementing wireless internet in all rooms as well.

What I like most about the Linde is the view from the rooms. On sunny days you can overlook the Black Forest and Karlsruhe. Very romantic! :)

Oh and the food is very yummy too! The guesthouse is popular with locals, too! Every night people gather up at the "Stammtisch", drink beers and chat with tourists. Quite an insider access! :)
