The Hotel Alter Kranen enjoys a perfect location to explore Wurzburg, on the river and close to the downtown, restaurants and tourist vistas. All of the rooms are good size and well appointed. We had one of the few underground parking places in the hotel but public parking is nearby. Breakfast was expansive with meats, breads, eggs, cheeses etc. All... More

Position of hotel close to old city and water - also close to giant free car park! Breakfast adequate. Bed and pillow ok though winter weight doona made it quote warm. Wurzburg is a lovely city and there are not many places to choose from downtown and this one balanced value with standard

For the money this is great. In the centre of this delightful town. Own parking places. you can't get better value than this. Just go there.....nicer then what you expect upon arrival at the building. Good breakfast and most of the staff very nice.

Great location in Wurzburg direct on river. There is a public parking garage just down the street from the hotel, maybe 3 minutes walking. The room was nice and clean with a great view of the river and castle on the hill.

A really lovely hotel in a great location on the river front with views of the castle. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, nothing seemed too much trouble. Rooms were spacious clean and well equipped with good bathrooms there is underground parking very close by. I'd highly recommend this place and hope to stay again in the future and... More

This was our second time in this hotel and we are already booked in for our third stay in December. We only use it for a night, as we travel down to Berchtesgaden, but it is ideally situated between the Channel ports and the Alps. It offers comfortable rooms and is right in the heart of the lovely city of... More

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
