“Pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This really was an excellent hotel. Fantastic rooms which were clean and very well maintained. Excellent air conditioning and free wifi. Free parking in secure underground car park. Very easy to find as just off one of the main roads. Good location, a five minute walk into the old town. Breakfast was excellent - great selection served in a spacious dining room. Would definately return in visiting Bamberg again.

Ideally I'd like to take the Bamberg Great Western with me wherever i go, as it has everything one wants in terms of modern amenities, large well-designed rooms, cleanliness, friendly and welcoming service, good breakfasts etc. So it doesn't have a view, but it does have position. On foot it's about ten minutes from the railway station and in 20 minutes you can walk through the pedestrian precinct of Grunewald and be over the river into the old town. Which is a total treat. This great and reasonably priced hotel really makes Bamberg, the prettiest town ever, into a top experience.

This hotel provides all the basics about as perfectly as possible. The hotel was immaculately clean; our room was comfortable and well laid-out; our bathroom was new, functional, well-designed, and spacious; there was a free laundry room on our floor; the breakfast was ample and delicious; and the staff were friendly and helpful and spoke perfect English. And the hotel is an easy walk from the train station, and an easy walk to the historic/tourism area. Of course you probably realize by now that this is not one of Bamberg's charming and gemütlich historic inns and is not located in the tourist area. But if you are looking for a well-located, comfortable, clean, and well-run modern hotel this is the place.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

The hotel is situated conveniently between the railway station and the city centre. It seems to be quite new and the room was clean, even though not especially big. Plenty of tv channels (Beate Uhse channel didn't work, even though it was on the list...) and toiletries were available. Friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent.

However, the view from the window was rather dull, there was no fridge in the room and wi-fi connection annoyingly snapped off every time when there was no data traffic for a couple of minutes or so, at least with my mobile phone (so relogging in was needed). Diners Club was not accepted.

But I can highly recommend this place, since all the fundamental things were great.

We arrived at this hotel with an extremely warm welcome from reception. Everyone was very friendly to our 15 month old baby and reception very helpful. The room was nice, modern, air conditioned and spotless. The breakfast was excellent. There is easy parking underneath for 8 Euros per 24 hours. The Hotel is in an excellent location for exploring the altstadt, just a couple minutes walk away. I would definitly stay here again.

We stayed at the Best Western in Bamberg due to friend's hotel choice. There is nothing you can set your finger on besides the location, which is a fair distance from the old city center. Nonetheless Bamberg has numerous more charming hotels than this very bland Best Western hotel. Ok room, very clean bathroom, good breakfast and so on. You could be anywhere in the world, but if you enjoy the safety of Best Western standards, then go for it.
