Right off the bat, I have to say the Palais gave us more memories, not to say post-mortem laughs than most hotels we've stayed at. To begin with, the main entrance is on a side street and the door and sign are not what you'd expect of a hotel, in that they are almost indiscernible. When you enter, you need... More

We found this hotel by chance, and we were so happy we did. The room was clean, had high ceilings, and was probably one of the largest rooms we've ever had in Europe. The hotel staff were very nice and helpful - the guy working the desk the morning we left actually walked us to the place where our taxi... More

The hotel is an old city palace in a very central location in the historic center of Bamberg. We had two giant rooms(just what you expect from an old palace). The staircases are old stone, the hotel oozes history and it has been tastefully renovated with a keen eye for all that is historic and original in the building. There... More

This is a beautiful hotel in the old city. The room was excellent and very spacious. Great breakfast in the most beautiful room. There is no wifi in the rooms although it is stated that there is. The stay was however great!!

The wifi, or lack of it, really lets this hotel down. The only place we could get a reliable signal was in the bar. Apart from that, the room was comfortable. We booked a garden room because some reviewers said the main street could be noisy so we wanted to make sure our room was not in the front of... More

We searched for a nice little hotel in the centre of this beautiful city. Everthing was beyond expected. Spacious rooms, a lot of flair and hyper-friendly staff, that helped a smuch as they could. The breakfast was full of different tastes .... Any time again! Thank you Palais Schrottenberg

A late arrival in Bamberg on a Saturday night... most places recommanded by Le guide du Routard were full, the Moroccan chap at the reception was very helpful, found us a room which suited our mood for the last night of our European trip. Modrn furniture in a 17th century place: this is the modern version of Baroque. We loved... More

A good hotel with central location. Close to the Slenkerla brewery. The place is quiet, with internal court. The building has hign ceilings and very well kept rooms. We slept on the first floor. The room had a bathtub which we specially asked for beforehand. The breakfast is served in the room of the former restaurant in the same building.... More

We stayed in the second location across the street. We had a nice room with a good, hot shower, which was nice after a long day. The location is in the best area of Bamberg, close to all the best historic sights and evening activities (restaurants and pubs).

This is 2010. We felt we got the "bait & switch" situation. The photos of a hip, contemporary high ceiling room is not the Palais Schrottenberg - it is a separate building affiliated with the hotel called DomHerrenhof. We reserved according the website - 2 HIP chambres but got a 80's furnished 16m2 room. After an exhausting day at a... More
