We had a two night stop here at the beginning of our tour of the Romantische Strasse. Brilliantly situated our room overlooked the river giving a commanding view of Festung Marienberg and the old bridge. Air conditioning and double glazing v effective so cool and no noise despite busy road beneath. No on site parking but we were able to... More

Charming hotel, friendly and helpful staff, great location near beautiful river front and the center of town. We loved Wurzburg. It was great to see people enjoying the evening by the river. We had fish and chips from the restaurant boat tied up across from the hotel. We were there in June 2014 and there was a lively wine festival... More

We stayed one night here en route to Rudesheim mainly to visit the Residenz Palace. Pleasant 3 star hotel next to the river. Clean and comfortable with free Wi-Fi. One cautionary note. If travelling by car book a car park space early as parking otherwise seems difficult. (We booked in January and got a 'personal garage"). Chargeable at 5 Euros... More

We spent a night at Hotel Alter Kranen whilst driving through Wurzburg last month. Despite being very unpretentious and veering on the modest end of luxury, the hotel is nevertheless very clean and comfortable, with everything that we could need or want. We booked a room for 3 persons, and actually ended up with 2 separate rooms (they had converted... More

Lovely hotel near the middle of town with lovely staff, great breakfast and comfortable rooms. Bit hard to make your way into the back street if you are travelling by car but well worth the effort. We booked a room with a view of the fortress & river and it was fabulous. Would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for one night prior to driving the Romantic Road. We wish we had stayed longer. The hotel is modern, clean and well located on the river within walking distance of the old bridge. Rooms are not large, but the view of the river makes up for it. Parking is convenient in a public garage across the road,... More

This is a very friendly and perfectly located small to medium sized family run hotel. The rooms on the river side overlooking the Main have a wonderful view of the ancient bridge and the Marienberg fortress across the river. The famous Residence Palace is very close as are most of the lovely attractions of Wurzburg. The rooms are medium sized,... More

The hotel is very close to the town hall and is at the midway between the Residenz and the fortress, although if you arrive Würzburg by train, you may find it challenging to find the hotel. The room is basic and clean. Drinks in the minibar have very reasonable price. In fact, soft drinks are cheaper from the minibar then... More

Fabulous location at the centre of the old town, we were touring Xmas markets and this was so close it was amazing. A good size room for the 3 of us. A good typical breakfast. No coffee making in the room, but the receptionist made us a cappuccino and bought it up to us at no cost. Shower was brilliant.... More
