Arriving at the hotel by car is a bit fraught, since the entrance is on a fairly busy road and we drove past it twice looking for somewhere to stop before I vaguely remembered where their website tells people to pull into (despite the no parking signs) in order to check in. I suggest that drivers familiarize themselves with this arrangement, by looking at the map on their website, before driving here.
Once we’d paused the car in the small space opposite, I ran across the road to the hotel and checked in with the delightfully helpful receptionist who subsequently directed us around the corner into their private garage space that we had booked.
We had room 12 on the first floor (one floor up), which was smallish but very nicely decorated and well maintained. The furniture was pine, with a wardrobe, two wooden chairs, desk, etc. The television had many channels, including a couple in English such as Sky News. The double bed had two separate mattresses pushed together, and was very comfortable. Electrically operated shutters on the windows kept the light out very well.
The bathroom was beautifully appointed – modern and spotlessly clean, with a very large shower.
Breakfast was a pleasant continental buffet spread presented in a most interesting ‘vault’ setting underneath the hotel. It made for a memorable start to the day.
We only stayed at the hotel for one night, but were really impressed with the quality of the room (especially the bathroom) and the uniqueness of their breakfast room. One other thing to mention were the two receptionists we met (one checking in; one checking out) who were both delightfully charming and helpful, and a credit to the hotel.
We’d recommend this hotel for anybody visiting Wurzburg. It is located only a few minutes walk to the city centre, over the nearby bridge spanning the river. If arriving by car, just do some planning in advance so you know where to pause whilst checking in - and I suggest you reserve a car parking space at 8 Euros a night in their secure garage.
