Best Western Bamberg deserves its excellent rating on Tripadvisor. This is a clean modern hotel midway between the train station and the old town; about 15 mins walk to each. We asked for a quiet room on an upper floor and that is exactly what we got, plus free internet, lovely breakfast and a coupon for 2 welcome drinks in the bar.
The room for our 2-night stay was modern, with neutral furnishings, a good size, bright and well laid out. The bathroom was lovely...compact, with complimentary toiletries, a great walk-in shower, and quality fittings with everything working well. The twin beds were fabulous with firm mattresses and 2 large pillows. We had a mini fridge too but we are not sure if this is a standard inclusion. Other room features include 2 chairs, small round table, flat panel TV (about 26 inch), desk with lamp, small cupboard, a few drawers and some extra hanging space for coats etc. Internet was free and worked well although it did seem slow at times. The TV here has many channels but only about 4 in English, including CNN, BBC News and Eurosport. The room was bright as a result of the large (opening) windows
In the foyer there was free coffee and snacks on a help-yourself basis. There is a supermarket in the building (20 m away) so it's easy to buy anything you may need. The hotel breakfast was great, with a good selection of quality hot and cold food. The breakfast room was spacious and bright, a nice place to linger just a little longer over great coffee.
We would definitely recommend the hotel to other travellers. We were able to use our AAA membership too which is not always possible in Best Westerns in Europe.
Corner room had windows on 2 sides which made the room bright. Rooms away from the elevator would be...
