The hotel is on the shore of the river Main. It's only few minutes walk from the center of old town. Parking is available 200 m from the hotel. The rooms are comfortable and the free WiFi is very fast. The bathroom is small. You can choose room with a fantastic view to the old castle (and some traffic noise)... More

Booked a standard double room for 2 nights through booking.com, I requested a room with a view and also parking. The next day an email from the Hotel confirmed a river view reservation and details about the parking – terrific customer service! I was happy - just loved the day and night view of the Marienburg Fortress from the room.... More

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

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. The... More
