This is an ideally located hotel with tons of charm smack in the center of old Bamberg. It's a lively area, full of students chatting and drinking and flirting, but the Alt-Ringlein's double-glazed windows kept the noise out of the room, and the fan kept me cool all night. We had a good meal at the restaurant with its well-priced,... More

We stayed for three nights. Location is perfect, being in the center of town, close to all the important sights, i.e Cathedral, River & Shopping. You need to have a GPS, city map or take a taxi, if visiting Bamberg for the first time, because it is very difficult to find if you are going by car. Park at the... More

I thought this hotel was lovely, the room was spotlessly clean and I loved looking out into the little street bustling with people and activity. As we were right in the centre of town, we could wander around without having to worry about the car. The only negative really is they charged 10 Euros for us to park overnight... a... More

A half-timbered former brewery right across from Schlenkerla, where there is something of a nightly party in the street, with a mix of tourists and locals drinking the famous smoked beer. We stayed there with two small children, all of us perhaps more tolerant to the noise than other families might be. Full days of walking the town and trying... More

I stayed for two nights in this hotel in November 2012, it is run by a family and there is no night receptionist. The breakfast was really good, but the wi-fi did not work and the cleaning women were really loud in the morning (both mornings I woke up there, so it's probably a habit). The hotel looks pretty traditional... More

The hotel is amazing. Best location in Bamberg, excellent restaurant with a nice biergarten. The room is really charming, clean, the bathroom is not so small. Everything was great when we were there, and the price was really fair. Definitely recommended!

We loved this hotel. The 2 double rooms we had were just average and comfy but for the amount of time in them who cares about room and style? The shower and bath were large which was nice. The room itself was a little cramped and a bit noisy at night but we used ear plugs. Our room looked right... More

This hotel is in the middle of the action in terms of things to see and do, with lots of old buildings, old restaurants, the bishop's old palace, the old castle and the old cathedral all just a few steps away from the lobby. Don't come with a car, as parking is extremely limited, hard to access even with a... More

Only stayed here due to the location and price compared to other hotels. It was very expensive for what was offered for a double room. Cable TV, no mini bar/fridge. The breakfast which was included in the room rate was appallingly insufficient.

It was accidental choice of the the accomodation in the charming center of historical Bamberg. Unfortunately, the hotel is very avarage, with no spirit and character. The rooms with old furnitures, but tidy enough and clean. The surrounding is quite noisy / night pedestrians returning from restaurants and bars, bells from the church tower/. The positiv point was the offer... More
