“Not the best, not the worst”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Great breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, convenient bike parking, spacious bathroom, fair price...

There was a bit of a funky smell in our room, and I would have preferred to be closer to the old town, but for 110/night, I suppose it was ok. I've stayed at other places in Bamberg that I've liked better, but they were a lot more expensive.

This is across the street from a great sushi place, should you need a break from German food while in Bamberg.

Don't bother continuing the search for a hotel in Bamberg. You will not find a better option than this hotel. It is simply the best. The location is perfect ie a few minutes walk from the train station and a few minutes walk into the old town. The room could not be faulted in any way (and after a very long flight this is the certainly the number one priority). The staff at this hotel are fantastic. The breakfast is probably the best we have had (and we have had a few!)
Just returned from three weeks staying in hotels in Germany and Austria and this was without doubt the standout!

My wife and I stayed here for five nights over the New Year period and without rehashing what previous reviewers have authored I can only say that I have no superlatives to add; this is an EXCELLENT hotel, from the breakfast (fresh, varied and plentiful), clean spacious rooms to the staff (efficient, polite helpful and very polite).

Although not in Bamberg Altstadt itself, the hotel is ideally located with the old town being reached with a 5-10 minute walk. The hotel also benefits rail travellers with its location, the train station also being a 5-10 minute walk; turn left out of hotel and carry straight on!

As previously mentioned the breakfast is very, very good and you can certainly 'fill up' for the day. Top tip: if you are a caffeine addict you can take 'coffee to go' from the machine ( a very good cappuccino/latte etc dispenser and certainly better than some!). There is also a small machine located in the foyer where free tea/coffee is available 24/7 and occasionally croissants/buns and or biscuits. Although the hotel doesn't have a restaurant (service) there is plenty of choice for every budget in close proximity, from the ubiquitous döner kebab to Chinese takeaway.

Top tip: for Sushi lovers directly outside the hotel is Ichi San Japanese restaurant, which I found to be great value and the varying sushi platters were amazing, not far off the best I've tasted (all subjective of course). Be warned though if your partners/friends are not raw fish fans the menu appeared limited.

A great hotel in a lovely city, if I return to Bamberg in the future I know where I will be staying! Travellers do yourselves a favour STAY IN THIS HOTEL. Whilst it may lack the ambience or architectural magnificence, due to modernity, of older hotels it more than makes up with its customer service & ethos.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK Best Western Bamberg!

This hotel is fabulous. The rooms are clean, very large(couch, chair and desk), bathroom products provided and had a kettle for tea and coffee. The bathroom had both a bath and large shower.
The hotel is sign posted from the train station and was an easy walk. The old town is about a 5-10 minute walk. There is also a supermarket next door.
Breakfast was included and was great, plenty of things to chose from.
Definitely would stay here again.

I read that hotel excellent and I completely agree with this opinion. The staff very friendly and helpful. Very clean and spacious room. The hotel located between train station and old town. There are hot (tea, coffee) and water in the lobby at any time for free.

We stayed at this property for 8 nights this fall. Everything about this hotel was great. The rooms are very clean and good size. The parking under the hotel works good. The staff was very helpful. The hotel is centrally located in Bamberg and it is a 5 minute walk to the downtown area.

Room Tip: The suites are large.

I can only agree with previous reviewers of this hotel. It is very clean the breakfast is very good, well located with only a short walk to the sights. What makes this hotel is the staff always smiling and verynh helpful. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to friends and colleagues.
