PROS: Large apartment. Easily sleeps 6 people, even more. Clean. Convenient to area attractions and train station. Plenty of places to eat nearby, as well as a large and modern grocery store (Edeka). Owner is very pleasant, happy to answer questions and give advice about what to do and where to eat. Free parking in the area (requires a bit of walking).
CONS: Only one bathroom. Lots of stairs to get to apartment. Poor wi-fi reception. Kitchen not set up for serious cooking.
We stayed on the top floor apartment in the house: big enough, clean and everything you need is available.
We had our private terrace downstairs and that would be the only minor point: you will not use the terrace for your breakfast or diner because of the “distance”.
Hosts are very friendly and helpful, Rathen and surrounding is beautiful! It is a short downhill walk to the village (and a bit more time consuming uphill to get back home again )
Visit the Bastei, do a bike ride near the Elbe, go to Dresden or Prague.. There is so much to see and do.
Make sure you ask the host to provide you directions on how to get to the house, car navigation might bring you in problem.
