“Clean and small. Disappointing overall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Hotel is located a bit away from the old town and easily accessible by car. It has 2 levels of underground car park.

The whole venue is nicely decorated in warm brown colors. The staff nice and helpful. I arrived at 11hrs am and was handed the key to my room without any complications beside the early arrival.

The room was about 15Sqm, well fitted and with a modern but very small bathroom with a walk in shower. The type of room made for short business travels only. Hard to stay there for more than 24 hrs, unless you plan on spending your day and evening outside.

Internet is provided for free for hotel guests and works fine unless your room is located at the end of a corridor, and like mr you might expect many troubles connecting to the distant routers.

The 'double bed' was made of 2 single beds next to each other!!!

Why the heck? A double bed is a double mattress! Even here in deep south Germany the concept of double bed could be easily understood. But no, the hotel is on a crusade to teach you about your needs...

In addition, the door to the bathroom is a wooden sliding door, not the most soundproof solution, and it's a meter away from the bed...

Room was equiped with a very small flat TV, facing the bed but 3 meters away. Better not watch a movie here.

I guess in Bavaria more than anywhere else in Germany they really believe that saving 20 euros and sacrificing the customer eyes makes sense.

Same punishment as the double bed, it's a non sense, doesn't make you feel well and you look at the bed and the TV and keep asking yourself, 'why'?

The hotel has a breakfast bar next to the entry door, where on arrival I could get free coffee and some Danish. Nice perk.

All in all a: ok place where to overnight for a short 1 night stay, specifically if you are in the city for business. For a stay in couples, I would say pass your way, it's a good business hotel. But as for me, next time I will go back to another venue out of the center but with a better offer in term of comfort and services.

In thr beautiful old town of Bamberg. 10 minute walk from the railway station and 15 minutes from the old town. Modern hotel with excellent professional English speaking staff. Nice room with great shower. No tea making facilities in the room but freely available 24/7 in the lobby. Excellent choice of breakfast.

Room Tip: Higher floors not facing main road would be best choice

This hotel is simply PERFECT!
Clean, fresh, elegant and with dedicated staff who truly know what "hospitality" requires.

Little touches like the refreshments available in the lobby throughout the day, the sumptuous breakfast buffet and the ideal location just in between the train station and the historic Old City make this hotel your preferred location whenever in Bamberg.

The Management Team of this fine property is absolute Quality! The staff is Customer focused, pays attention to details, and is caring. Every Department of this hotel has stars, starting with the Reception Team, specifically Frau Goering, Frau Kalb, Fraulein Ruebensaal, and Fraulein Phillip. The Fruestueck Team is equally excellent , specifically Frau Emmert and Frau Schonert. And lastly the Housekeeping Team does a great job. We could not be more pleased with this hotel and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: High floors are quiet. Be sure to take advantage of their rich and well laid out breakfast.

The hotel is absolutely fantastic, nice welcoming staff, location is within walking distance to most of Bamberg attractions, at the city center, the room is quite spacious and nicely furnished, there is anear by supermarket, and plenty of car parks , cost EUR 6. The breakfast is superb, plenty of food selctions. Certainly will be my choice to stay in for my next visit.

This was by far the cleanest, neatest, friendliest hotel we have ever been in. The staff was simply above and beyond the call of duty. The breakfast was great, if there's wasn't anything you liked, you weren't hungry. They were extremely helpful in giving directions, suggestions for places to go or eat. They have bicycles to rent very reasonable.

Room Tip: Double rooms are larger, single rooms are ok, but small. Good for a single person.
