We chose this hotel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and found the experience to be a good match to what we read online. The hotel location is fabulous with a quick walk to both the old downtown, restaurants, shops, the lovely pedestrian bridge and the rive Main. The wifi is the fastest we experienced in our entire 3... More

This hotel is really well located in Würzburg. The main square, Residenz, river, and train station are all within easy walking distance. The room we had was plenty spacious. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. The staff were nice too. Breakfast is included here and it is a very nice spread of breads, cheese, cold-cuts, fruit,... More

It is extremely overrated hotel which has no individuality, no warmth. Also it is not easy to find it as the main entrance is from the very neglected narrow street. Breakfast is very average. Rooms are normal size but cold and noisy. The only positive thing is the view from the windows (of course if you are lucky to have... More

I stayed at this great hotel a few weeks before Christmas. It's everything you expect an efficient German hotel to be - clean, traditional, good quality. I had a lovely view over the river and up towards the fortress. My room was comfortable and spacious, everything worked well and I had no problems at all. Wifi was quick and reliable.... More

Nicely appointed rooms. Comfortable bed. Stayed in suite with view of street. Contains 2 bedrooms & extra large bathroom. Breakfast room has river views - lovely. 2 minute walk to Alte Mainmühle restaurant. If you're driving suggest you reserve car parking. You will get a secure garage. However, check size of your car. Garage we got was narrow but good... More

Great little hotel, nicely situated within walking distance of the town centre, attractions and restaurants. Parking is in the local underground car parks. A short walk and you can unload directly outside first. There is no restaurant, just a breakfast room. I have dropped a star because the wifi was inoperative during our stay.

Stayed for 1 night in October. Staff was excellent and extremely helpful. Answered my many questions about restaurants and things to do during our brief stay. Lent me an adapter plug for night which I had lost earlier in trip. Location can't be beat. On Main River with view of Fortress and close to the party bridge, which should not... More

Located right on the river in the center of town, this small hotel is a great value. Make sure to reserve a room with a view of the river. The rooms are small but immaculate. You can reserve a parking garage (locked and private). breakfast is offered, very reasonable and tables set with linens etd. People are very friendly and... More

We only stayed one night at Alter Kranen at the beginning of our trip but found the staff to be very helpful and the room to be quite nice; with the added bonus of it overlooking the river. It was very easy to get anywhere we wanted to go on foot from the hotel although we found driving to the... More

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
