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

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

This hotel was located near the train station and is within walking distance to everything. The room for a single person was what it is but that's expected in Europe. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and the staff was nice and a restaurant was located in the hotel, the too.

Hotel is located near central station, three minutes away on foot and five minutes from Old Rathaus. Hotel is very clean and relatively cheap. Please try negociate price in person if it is off season. Hotel employees are not very friendly.

The staff was wonderfully friendly and helpful. It is likely that the hotel has seen better days, an little updating and cleaning would make this hotel a great place to stay in Bamberg. On-site parking was a benefit.
