The hotel Grüner Baum is located close to the city center of Würzburg. Bars and restaurants are in short walking distance. For those of you who like castles, the hotel is very close to the 'Marienfeste', an old and very large stronghold. If you come closer to the castle, you surely doubt that anyone could have won in a siege against this battlements.
We have been to Würzburg for an event in the restaurant of the 'Marienfeste'. As this hotel is very close, we needed 15 minutes by foot to climb up the hill towards the fortress. During winter-times there are no guided tours, but starting at the end of March again.
We have been in teh hotel for one day and we did not test the restaurant. We did however have one of the best buffet-breakfasts money can buy. For the price of 85€ for the room and 10€ for the breakfast for two persons, price-performance ratio can not be bet.
Parking in the rear of the hotel costs 3€ but it can happen that other people park behind you so that you can not leave immedeately. I recommend the closed garage which costs 8€ per day. You can also find other parking possibilities for free but only during evening and night times.
The rooms are small but comfortable. The bathroom is small as well but ours was newly renovated. From the outside the hotel looks old but in my opinion it is a hidden gem. You will not find another hotel in this area this cheap but still not shabby nor scary. The interior of the hotel is well maintained and old chairs or other things in the floors add to the kind of medievil charm of the hotel.
Each room has a minibar with surprisingly cheap prices (Beer 2€, chocolate bar 0,70€) and a small TV with many stations. The room itself apart from the bathroom is not new but not old or dirty.
The personnel is friendly and even accompanies you by foot to the garage so that you find the right way. You can get a complimentary map of Würzburg if you need one, all in all a very friendly atmosphere.
The breakfast buffet was large with much choices of bread, rolls and fruit. They have large cheese and sausage plates as well as cereals and yoghurt. You can have milk and juices, coffee and tea. Did I tell you that the breakfast takes place in an old vault?
So as I said, I can recommend the hotel to everyone who comes to Würzburg for a short trip, maybe over the weekend.
