Pretty good for the price, Rooms are small and basic, but perfectly good. We had a all balcony with a good view. Good buffet breakfast with a nice terrace outside. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Tricky to find by car (it is in a one-way system near a bus terminus) but you get there eventually...

We stayed here while on a short break to Bamberg. The hotel is only 2 stars so we didn't have high expectations but were generally happy with what we got. The room was a decent size although it was very outdated and needs renovation. You open the door and the bed is imemdiately in front of you (so if somebody... More

The hotel is well located we walked everywhere from the train station to the breweries. Breakfast was a nice spread the rooms were very basic for a hotel in this price range with cheap carpeting that gave it a musty sort of feel. They did have the radiator heat turned on something I did not find common in September in... More

This hotel was found on a whim, after we were getting ripped off by the on-post hotel on Bamberg base. After visiting the hotel, I was completely surprised by the poor reviews of the hotel. The hotel rooms have gone under a complete reconstruction, as my experience is completely opposite of previous encounters by tripadvisors. The room was so brand... More

Of the ten hotels we stayed at during our recent European trip, the Central was disappointing. The hotel is barely three star, old and its rooms are in need of renovation and far below all the other three star hotels we stayed in. Our room was basic with a tiny bathroom where movement was restricted. Breakfast was adequate but again... More

Hotel is in a great location. The rooms are large and clean. The bathroom is also large. Breakfast was fantastic, great choice of food. Staff is very friendly. Parking is located nearby. If you want to find a good and affordable hotel in the city center, this hotel is for you

My girlfriend and I wanted a cheap and centrally located hotel in beautiful Bamberg, and that's what we got. On arrival we were reminded by the friendly and helpful receptionist that the room we booked came with a shared toilet. Neither of us minded - we knew this was why it was so cheap. We got to our room to... More

Hotel Central is a no-frills lodging in a fairly good location, offering friendly service at competitive rates. However, its rooms, decorations notwithstanding, feel rather cold and soulless, and are not so clean. The hotel occupies a historic building that is close to geographical center of the city as well as to ZOB (central bus station) and a taxi stand. It... More

We were looking for last minute budget accomodation in Bamberg and found this Hotel on Booking.com. It is consistently the second cheapest hotel in bamberg if you're looking to stay central and not in a neighboring town. We found that anything cheaper would only have saved us between 15 and 20 Australian dollars and was at least 10 kms away.... More

This hotel is nicely located in Bamberg. My husband and I were able to walk to all of the area sites we wanted to visit and were close to great shopping. Internet was free and reliable. Breakfast was plenty and typical of the area. The staff were helpful. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evenings and watching the... More
