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

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
