Convenient 10 minute walk --part alongside beautiful park, part on a pedestrian street-- from the train station. On the edge of Regensburg's compact and easily navigable old city which is mostly pedestrian streets.
Worth a stay if only for the enormous brass room keys! Friendly and helpful desk staff. Rooms try to be brightly colored and cheery --mine had 15foot ceilings and large ensuite with tub/shower-- but it is a former monastery, after all. Upper floor rooms seem best.
Never saw other guests except at breakfast in small second floor eating rooms. At Christmas Markt season, seemed to be used by middle-aged to older German tour groups. Good buffet as described by other reviewers.
Room noise: Was on top floor so ceiling noise. No noise from adjacent rooms either. Inner rooms --like I had-- face an inside courtyard that has outdoor bar seating. Even with cold weather there was a private reception one evening. I imagine it must get very loud during warm weather. Outside rooms face street --see other reviews for bad experiences. I think it's a gamble no matter what.
Would stay again, but would also look into the many other hotels in the old city.
