“Great hotel, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

This is our 2nd stay at this hotel. We stayed there when they first opened 3 years ago. Many of the same staff are still there. Always the sign of a good hotel. We arrived late morning but were still able to check in and go to our room. The same one as our last visit which we had requested by phone just 2 days before. Staff are helpful cheerful and very professional. The breakfast is excellent with a very wide choice. Really sets you up for the day. Location is excellent. Just 5 mins walk from both the town centre and the railway station. No tea and coffee making facilities in room but both are available free of charge in the reception area. Only minor downside is that very little literature is available in English on the town and surrounding area. Will definitely use this hotel again when visiting our family in Germant

We walked in to this hotel without a reservation and were lucky enough to get 2 of 3 rooms remaining. The front desk staff couldn't have been more accomodating and friendly, especially Viola, whose English was impeccable! The rooms were clean, comforable and inviting and our view was very nice. We opened the windows and a wonderful breeze cooled us off. Rooms are updated and have a safe. Wi-fi was free in our room with a password. They have a washer and dryer on the top floor which is very, very convenient and we took full advantage, haha!! Hotel is in a great location, with a short pleasant walk into old Bamberg. Or, you can rent bikes from the hotel or a bike shop located just a few minutes away on foot. There's complimentary water/coffee/tea in the lobby 24/7. Breakfast is wonderful and the breakfast staff are very helpful and attentive. There's a Bio supermarket and a bank, right next door and the hotel has underground parking. Highly recommend!!!

Room Tip: Corner room has 2 views. 2 windows and lovely breeze.

The Best Western Hotel in Bamberg was one of our favorites during our 2 weeks in Germany. We had reserved two rooms and were updated to two suites as we registered. The staff was very helpful. The rooms were large with updated bathrooms all of which were very clean. The location is excellent, just a short 5 min. walk to the city center. The breakfast was delicious with the opportunity to sit either inside or out on the terrace. There is also a garage and a small maket next door. One of our favorite hotels on the trip!

The hotel best western bamberg has all things you need when away from home. Check in was easy and staff were always very helpful when asked (even granted a late checkout). The hotel is located within a new building and so all rooms are reasnaobly new, rather than older style European buildings with the charm but often lack of modern amenity. Rooms have tea and coffee making facilties, multi channel tv with English channels, large bathroom area, nice desk work area with free internet access, free parking and there is even a self serve laundry (washing machines and dryers, ironing boards etc) which comes in handy if you are on an extended trip. The rooms are very clean and of reasonable size for Europe. The included breakfast buffet was extensive and while not gourmet standard, it was well prepared, with many choices (including full English b/fast) and provided a good start to the day.

The hotel is easy walking distance from the Bamberg rail station and has supermarkets, and breweries, restaurants etc with easy reach. The only slight negative is the location relative to the Bamberg old town. You can certainly walk to the Dom platz or central market streets, but it is a reasonable distance away.

Overall, I would have no hesitation in staying her again on my next trip to Bamberg.

I picked this hotel from three others because of the cleaness and where it was located. The morning breakfast was good, nice small bar and great hospitality. The real great thing was that, kids, 12 and under, get to stay for free. Good place!

Nice large room and bathroom, comfy bed, normal price for a beer from the mini-bar, and a breakfast buffet with everything from scrambled eggs to fresh fruit. Excellent value for money and within easy walking distance of most of the town's attractive sights (and right next to the chain bridge with its lovers' padlocks). If you're spending time in Bamberg, this is the place to stay!

This hotel was like a fantasy oasis at the end of a long day on the road, but it was real. We were given an upgrade to a superior room on arrival. This room was very large, very new, spotless, with a comfortable bed, furnishings, and bath. The hotel is set back half a block from the main street, so it is quiet. There were TWO luggage racks, something I don't believe I have ever seen in a room. So practical. The breakfast is massive, healthy if you want, varied, and fresh. The lobby is large, comfortable, and they offered free beer! There are two computers in the lobby with high speed internet. Parking is in the garage below and reasonably priced. The staff hussled with a cheerful air. The place feels young and happy. I would absolutely return.
