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

The location of the Alter Kranen is perfect!. We were able to park in a public garage across from the hotel and they punched our parking ticket so we only paid 8 Euros for 24 hours of parking. We could walk anywhere we wanted to in the old town. Our room overlooked the Main River and we had a great... More

The entrance is on Karrnergasse, a narrow back street just off Mainkai. There is a breezeway from Mainkai but try to use Karrnergasse where loading is best. This was the only hotel we stayed in that did not have parking and the only one where we spent only one night. Parking is at a public garage under the old crane... More

Stayed at alter kranen for 2 nights and had only one minor gripe - no shampoo. Apart from that it was very good value for money - room was clean and large enough, breakfast was good (and varied), staff friendly, and the hotel itself was right on the river with a great view of the fortress and only 3 minutes...

We spent four nights at this hotel, and we were very satisfied with our choice. First of all, our room was spacious (by European standards), and we had two large windows, which allowed a lot of light and fresh air. The bathroom was modern and spotless. The breakfasts, included with the room, were more than adequate, but not elaborate. Our... More

Be sure to book a room facing the river on a high floor and you will have a great view of the castle across the river. I was worried when booking the hotel as it was so inexpensive but my worries were for naught. The rooms real simple yet had everything you wanted with new towels and sheets and beds.... More

We visited Wurzburg at the end of a drive up the Romantic Road. I chose the Alter Kranen based on TA advice and the hotel website. For a hotel that looks old, but is actually quite new the AK is rated excellent when considering the price, location and amenity. This was one of the cheapest places we stayed in Germany,... More
