I think that is actually the first time in all of our trips we felt really deceived. We booked a hotel on Booking.com for the next day, approximately at 9 or 10 p.m. The main reasons were - "all rooms are easily accessible by elevator" (it is a quote from description on Booking.com site) , the price, parking. Well the... More

Our company booked us several Double rooms, but we got single rooms instead without any notice. And voila - we are getting the full bill during the check out. Paying 99 Euro per night for rooms we have never even seen. We tried to raise the question of price correction during the check-out but one VERY UNPLEASANT lady at the... More

We booked two single rooms for two nights without breakfast. On arrival we were told that breakfast was compulsory, a fact not mentioned anywhere on the website we used. Our plan to explore the cafes in town was, if not scuttled, at least curtailed. The rooms were clean, and most of the staff quite friendly. However, the walls in the... More

I booked a stay for the Valentine's day weekend through booking.com and it seemed like a decent rate, about 35 Euro per person minus any taxes, a little more than what the 1 hostel in Bamberg that was open charges. What they don't tell you when you book is that you HAVE to order breakfast for each person for each... More

Worst hotel in whole Germany! For that price you have to pay for: breakfast, parking. But after you payed for all, you would find in the toilet and in the shower comb of hair!!! And another unpleasant surprise- door in your room to the next room! So you could hear next-door-neibhours! Staff so unfriendly, so impolite, and receptionist DID NOT... More

We came the first week of December and decided to stay as an overnight. Surprisingly all hotels were sold out in Bamberg except one room in this hotel. The location was easy to find via gps. The receptionist did not speak much English, but smiled and tried a bit, although it helped that my husband speaks some German. The hotel... More

Great location' comfortable rooms and great bathroom' great breakfast also. Strange reception set up' appears to be spread over two buildings. No ramp or elevater access without first having to struggle up or down steps' steps everywhere! Would recommend but not to infirm or disabled or those that struggle to carry bAgs up steps

The GPS brought us to the Cathedral. It took a little exploring to learn that the Hotel is 'round the back' in a building that probably was once part of a monastery but so renovated today that the entrance was more akin to a 1980's condo foyer than anything historical. You enter at the rear and take a most modern... More

I have booked this hotel through Booking.com. The confirmation mail says that the check-in policy is from 2pm to 7pm. At the very bottom of the confirmation email (after all useless information such as ads, location information and so on) there is a section that says "Important information: If you expect to arrive after 19:00, please inform the hotel in...

It is a kind of hotel/pension (it is literally in a cloister). We stayed in a room with two big beds. The kids enjoyed a lot. Sober decoration but nice, modern, appropriate to the place and very clean. Nice location also. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for something charming and not a business-hotel.
