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

I arrived at this hotel in Wurzburg on a Saturday afternoon in March. It has a great location just yards form the center of the Old Town and my room had a wonderful view of the river Mains. When I checked in, the woman at the desk spoke no English. In that I speak some German, it was absolutely no... More

We stayed here one night. It was a little tricky to find due to the road which the entrance is one way. The garage is very small- we just fit Audi A4 wagon. If you are driving, I would recommend garage (€10) from the hotel. The room is adequate, the view we had was great, by the river and with... More

Great location of the hotel. We had a very nice room, free wi-fi, great shower and towels. The staff was friendly (except for the one woman in the reception, she didn't care for the guests, she looked like manager or something). We ordered 2 teas at 9pm through room service and they didn't charge us, even though I told them... More

We chose this hotel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and found the experience to be a good match to what we read online. The hotel location is fabulous with a quick walk to both the old downtown, restaurants, shops, the lovely pedestrian bridge and the rive Main. The wifi is the fastest we experienced in our entire 3... More

This hotel is really well located in Würzburg. The main square, Residenz, river, and train station are all within easy walking distance. The room we had was plenty spacious. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. The staff were nice too. Breakfast is included here and it is a very nice spread of breads, cheese, cold-cuts, fruit,... More

It is extremely overrated hotel which has no individuality, no warmth. Also it is not easy to find it as the main entrance is from the very neglected narrow street. Breakfast is very average. Rooms are normal size but cold and noisy. The only positive thing is the view from the windows (of course if you are lucky to have... More

I stayed at this great hotel a few weeks before Christmas. It's everything you expect an efficient German hotel to be - clean, traditional, good quality. I had a lovely view over the river and up towards the fortress. My room was comfortable and spacious, everything worked well and I had no problems at all. Wifi was quick and reliable.... More

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.
