Given it's high TA rating, we had expected more but found the service to be more enthusiastic than competent. Our room on the top floor was very pleasant with a lovely view over the river but, without a lift, lugging cases up and down two flights of stairs was hard work. Breakfast was not the 'buffet' described but an individual... More

This was a very nice hotel with very friendly staff and a river view from the room. The room was a good size and comfortable and the breakfast was a work of art. We would definitely recommend this hotel if you are staying in the amazingly beautiful city of Bamberg. There are nine breweries within the town which are well... More

We came to Bamberg for the weekend and stayed at Tandem Hotel based upon its reviews and it's location within Bamberg and we were very pleased with the decision. We requested a corner room based upon another reviewers suggestion and were rewarded with a very pretty view. The hotel is spotlessly clean, comfortable, modern bathroom, nice European breakfast and very... More

Bamberg is a great city off the beaten path (for US travelers) and this hotel is one reason our stay was special. A modern hotel with the intimacy of a b&b. our room was clean, warm, and comfy. Breakfast was filling and tasty. The owner is friendly and helpful. Easy walking to all major sites in town.

We arrived at the hotel latter in the day than I had planned for but this was due to automobile issues. We... More

The service and the hotel itself was wonderful. The rooms are beautiful. Small but efficient and very well maintained and spotlessly clean. One of the cleanest hotels we stayed in our entire two weeks of jaunting around Germany. We had a late check in that we arrived a bit early for and had to call the hotel staff and they... More

Based on other posts, I had emailed to make sure that someone would be around earler in the day so that I could at least drop... More

The Tandem Hotel is a family run excellent place to stay for a holiday,Ideal location, quiet and yet close to all of Bamberg's amenities. The staff were exceptionally friendly and any request was greeted with a smile! Breakfast was a delight. The bedrooms were small but more than adequate. Beds comfortable ensuring a good night's sleep. Would have no hesitation... More

We were very happy with our stay at the Tandem. The rooms are new (at least where we were), very clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was good and the staff was very helpful and friendly. They were great in suggesting places to eat and have a beer and took care of all our requests right away. As others have noted, there... More
