This a great place to stop for a Germany tour and very reasonable price wise. The family running the hotel are very accommodating. If you like down pillows just ask. It was very convenient to all the sites of Wurzburg. The breakfast was very good. The bathrooms are modern and the rooms are very clean and well kept. If going... More

My husband and I stayed here one night on our train trip through Europe in May, 2015. I had requested a room with a view and was delighted that our request was honored. The view was fabulous of the fortress at night. I only wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the view of the fortress and river. The... More

If you choose to stay at the Hotel Alter Kranen, I would implore you to be sure that your room is on the river side of the building. Both of our rooms were on the back side, and the noise was absolutely hellacious. We were in town during a marathon, and the city was extremely busy - so this is... More

stayed for 2 nights in this lovely hotel. As we arrived by car we made use of their garage at a reasonable rate. Our room was on the top floor overlooking the castle and the river and was of good size although the bathroom was on the small size but provided all that was required.The staff were all pleasant and...

We stayed at the Alter Kranen in March. The Hotel has an excellent location with views of the river and the Festung. You can walk to practically all Wurzburg tourist locations (Residenz, churches, market, etc) and restaurants are all around you. The hotel breakfast is very good and is included in the rate. The Hotel has a few parking garages... More

It is hard to beat the location, for views over the Main River and for exploring the old town. We spent two nights here and the room was spacious, comfortable with a great bed. They had a cute little individual garage for our car. Breakfast was OK, not amazing. Super fast wifi worked exceptionally well. Recommended for location, comfort, and... More

We stayed here for two nights. The hotel is ideally located, everything is within walking distance. We had a room with view of the river, the only problem might be that in summer people hang out there and are noisy - or so the hotel leaflet says, giving the local police number to call if it becomes a nuisance.

Stayed here for one night with my husband and a 3 month old. The location can't be beat-next to the water and a quick walk to the old town. I got up in the morning and went for a run along the River. The hotel was very accommodating-helped us with a cot for the baby and made some tour recommendations.... More

I stayed for one night at this hotel. I walked from the station. it didnt take long and was easy to find. I would have thought it would be harder if you came by car. I had a single room on the top floor. It had free wifi and a fridge. I was pleased that there were a number of... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Alter Kranen on a roadtrip through Germany. It was the perfect stop in Wurzburg! The location can't be beat - you can walk everywhere from there. It is right on the river, and our room had a great view of the river and bridges. The beds were unmemorable - neither good nor... More
