Nicely appointed rooms. Comfortable bed. Stayed in suite with view of street. Contains 2 bedrooms & extra large bathroom. Breakfast room has river views - lovely. 2 minute walk to Alte Mainmühle restaurant. If you're driving suggest you reserve car parking. You will get a secure garage. However, check size of your car. Garage we got was narrow but good... More

Great little hotel, nicely situated within walking distance of the town centre, attractions and restaurants. Parking is in the local underground car parks. A short walk and you can unload directly outside first. There is no restaurant, just a breakfast room. I have dropped a star because the wifi was inoperative during our stay.

Stayed for 1 night in October. Staff was excellent and extremely helpful. Answered my many questions about restaurants and things to do during our brief stay. Lent me an adapter plug for night which I had lost earlier in trip. Location can't be beat. On Main River with view of Fortress and close to the party bridge, which should not... More

Located right on the river in the center of town, this small hotel is a great value. Make sure to reserve a room with a view of the river. The rooms are small but immaculate. You can reserve a parking garage (locked and private). breakfast is offered, very reasonable and tables set with linens etd. People are very friendly and... More

We only stayed one night at Alter Kranen at the beginning of our trip but found the staff to be very helpful and the room to be quite nice; with the added bonus of it overlooking the river. It was very easy to get anywhere we wanted to go on foot from the hotel although we found driving to the... More

The Hotel Alter Kranen enjoys a perfect location to explore Wurzburg, on the river and close to the downtown, restaurants and tourist vistas. All of the rooms are good size and well appointed. We had one of the few underground parking places in the hotel but public parking is nearby. Breakfast was expansive with meats, breads, eggs, cheeses etc. All... More

Position of hotel close to old city and water - also close to giant free car park! Breakfast adequate. Bed and pillow ok though winter weight doona made it quote warm. Wurzburg is a lovely city and there are not many places to choose from downtown and this one balanced value with standard

For the money this is great. In the centre of this delightful town. Own parking places. you can't get better value than this. Just go there.....nicer then what you expect upon arrival at the building. Good breakfast and most of the staff very nice.

Great location in Wurzburg direct on river. There is a public parking garage just down the street from the hotel, maybe 3 minutes walking. The room was nice and clean with a great view of the river and castle on the hill.

A really lovely hotel in a great location on the river front with views of the castle. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, nothing seemed too much trouble. Rooms were spacious clean and well equipped with good bathrooms there is underground parking very close by. I'd highly recommend this place and hope to stay again in the future and... More
