This hotel us located right in the old town. It is a strange assembly of buildings, rooms and annexes that (I suspect) have been subsumed as the business has grown. I visited with a friend for a beer-sampling weekend and we stayed in the two bedroom apartment. The room was basic but clean with a hotel-style kitchenette. The beds were... More

no hard feelings: this hotel is "what you see is what you get". in the most crowded nightlife area of the town and not well isolated against the noise. rooms are simple, very basic indeed and although they are clean it seems all dirty cause it is so old and run down. breakfast is incl. and not too bad, but...

The hotel is situated on one of the main party streets of Bamberg. Therefore it is perfect of you want to be close to where the action is. And it is reasonably priced, too. Though it does not offer much in the way of amenities, the staff is really friendly and helpful.

Rooms are smaller than American hotels, but still nice and clean. Hotel staff very nice, as well as breakfast. Great view of the cathedral, although I didn't know the bells rang very loud and long in the morning.

We (a couple) needed a room for a few days but they only had apartments for the number of days we needed so we took it. It has a small kitchen w/ stove, refrigerator, sink, & dishes. Too bad we didn't need to use it. The apartment has two bedrooms, 1 toilet, & 1 shower. Breakfast was acceptable. Staff was... More

The hotel is at least a half-hour hike from the train station, but you don't want to be staying by the train station in the gorgeous town of Bamberg. The hotel is located right next to the cathedral, with a grocery store about 10 minutes or so away. The most beautiful parts of the town are nearby, with bars and... More

The room was really inexpensive and the breakfast buffet was yummy. WIFI worked great on the top floor. People were very helpful. The live entertainment part of town is outside the hotel which makes for a very short walk to the room which is good but it got a little noisy out on the street around 2am when the clubs... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable, typical smaller European size. Nice breakfast buffet, with plenty of options and good coffee. The location is right in the middle of town, within walking distance of restaurants and attractions. On the downside, there is no elevator or parking.
