The hotel is reasonably well located between the train station and town. Maybe 5 min to train station, 10 min to town. The rooms were adequate and clean but not what you call flash. The price we paid was relatively high given it was near the festival in Aug, so we felt it was not up to the price. The... More

I went with a friend to Bamberg and booked this hotel for about 75€ a night. The location is very good, near the train station. About 1km walk to the old city. The hotel is a bit old fashioned with an elevator from 70-80's. The rooms were extremely nice, my friend even got a room with two (floors) The downstairs... More

The hotel is a few minutes' walk from the main railway station and from two of Bamberg's best pubs (Fässla and Spezial). The town centre is about ten minutes' walk away. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there is a decent buffet breakfast. Only gripe is that there is only one English language TV channel - the absolutely dire... More

This is a very nice hotel. The sound proof windows were a nice surprise when during our stay Germany won the football world cup and there was a total chaos of supporters, fireworks, and cars honking for hours. The breakfast even had some vegetables, which is not a certainty in Germany.

I was in Bamberg with some friends one friday night and as it got later in the night the train stopped running so I stopped by at Hotel National because I needed somewhere to stay to get some rest before I went back home the next morning. I went to the front desk to ask if they had any rooms... More

An older hotel we stayed in only for one night. Appreciated reasonable price within reasonable walking distance of old city in Bamberg. Room was fine if not somewhat small. Appreciated free wifi. Breakfast was surprisingly impressive and extensive - even had soft boiled eggs with text to bring a smile. Mine said -"when you smile the whole world smiles with... More

WiFi was free and easy to access with a password generated from the front desk. There is a car park under the hotel, we parked for free on the street directly in... More

Very close to the Main Railway Station and that was ok for us because we were there only for the weekend. Altstadt is 15-20 min walking. Room was big and clean, staff's nice and polite. Ok breakfast. It was a pleasant stay.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for two nights while on Oktoberfest Tour with Bayern Trips. Centrally located - short walk from train station and historic sites. Our room was very small only a few feet on each side of our double bed. Good breakfast. WiFi.

For the price I paid, I had expected more... It's old and not so close to the center. The bathrooms need an urgent renovation and the breakfastroom is too small for the amount of tables they have put in it. 70 € would had been ok, but 94 is too much for what they offer!!!!! Either they renew the hotel... More
