With a lovely location overlooking Ansbach, this somewhat outdated hotel nevertheless still provided us with a pleasant 2-nights stay. The rooms and bathrooms are in typical Best Western hotel style and size, but with German style furnishings. Much to the delight of our grandson the rooms had balconies where he sat to drink tea that could be prepared in the... More

Ansbach is short on traditional hotels, this hotel is likely the best in the area. Located on the side of a hill overlooking the city the view (on the city side) is outstanding. Like most German hotels this property does not have air conditioning. Most rooms though have ample windows and/or balcony doors to let in the breeze. There are... More

This hotel has a wonderful view atop a hill overlooking Ansbach. While the view is nice, this makes it hard to walk into the city for food. Room was spacious and clean, but was in need of a renovation/modernization. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was average. WiFi was above average. Parking was easy in a lot across from the...

I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past couple years and every time has been a delightful experience. The hotel sits over the small town of Ansbach and most the rooms have a great view of the town. You are walking distance from downtown and there is always a celebration taking place. The hotel has a couple... More

Our second stay here. The hotel has a commanding view over the town and a short down hill walk takes you into the town which is very attractive. We enjoyed a very reasonably priced evening meal in the hotel Café (rather than the restaurant) and the service was very good. Breakfast was excellent with a superb choice. The room was... More

This my second time staying at this hotel. I have business on the base and this hotel is about 8 minutes away. It is very quiet, has free wifi and is very clean. The free breakfast in the morning is top notch. Everything you would ever want. There is a parking lot with free parking and you can walk to... More

The Drechselsgarten has a magnificent view of Ansbach. It is set up in the hills and you can see for miles on a clear day. We went for coffee and cake and were not disappointed! It also has nice rooms if you want to stay there. I went to visit a friend and the rooms had a great view of... More

I have eaten here several times over the years and have never failed to be impressed. The menu is exquisite and the food delicious and beautifully presented. The hotel restaurant also has stunning views over Ansbach, the Orangery and the surrounding countryside.

Great location on the hill overlooking Ansbach. The restaurant has patio overlooking the city. The view and atmosphere are excellent. The food in the restaurant is very good as is the service. Highly recommend when staying in Ansbach.

This is a very American style hotel with staff able to speak English. We stayed multiple nights and had no complaints. It is slightly above average by American standards. The room was pleasant as we're the staff members we encountered. The views from the restaurants were lovely and the food good. The breakfast buffet was nice with plenty of selections... More
