“Pet friendly but don't bring your kids.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Set atop a hill overlooking old Bamberg, our room #16 offered a wonderful view of the morning fog lifting off the dozen or so bell towers of the churches below. In the morning we noticed a few guests leaving with their pets which is fine but I wouldn't call this a familly-friendly place. For one thing the bathroom door is glass (see-through) and there is a larger- than- life orgiastic mural in the staircase. Our bedroom's theme was zebra print ... Funky for consenting adults of any stripes... The mattress offered decent comfort and the room was clean and tidy. There is an airy, modern and relaxing breakfast room and a large lounge/reception area with many comfortable sofas on the ground floor. Full windows offer the same great view of Bamberg and the surrounding hills. Very good european-style breakfast choices: cheeses, cold-cuts, pâtés, smoked salmon and the like. There is also a desert counter next to the coffee bar. Pleasant (and pretty!) wait staff. We arrived by car at 7PM in the rain so we found it a bit of a challenge to locate. However, there is parking on the premises and also a bus stop on the corner of the street. Ask the hotel for infos.

Room Tip: the rooms with a view are #11 and #16. There is no lift.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2011

This property is way above town in a largely residential neighborhood on the Jakobsberg. As such there's a great view into the valley, but virtually nothing else you can walk to. Comfortably.

OK, it's a nice walk, but a long one -- I'm guessing a half mile -- down the hill. And hiking back up, especially after downing a few drinks, is likely an undertaking better suited to the young and/or the fit. Women: I wouldn't recommend climbing this hill alone after dark as the path is largely unlit.

There is (very) limited bus service. And, Yes, there's parking up at the hotel, but who wants to drive? The whole appeal of a place like Bamberg, "Word Heritage Site", largely undamaged during World War II, is the strolling and ogling and hanging about. Should you arrive during one of the (many) holidays celebrated here, you'll find a lot of the streets closed to motor vehicle traffic; then the medieval town becomes a gridlock nightmare.

So while I can't complain about the service, or breakfast, or rooms, it's the view that sells this place. If you feature gazing into lovely Franconian vistas from the outskirts, this is for you. If you'd prefer to be nearer the center of things, go elsewhere.

One more thing. This is another of those hotels that's decided to encourage intimacy among its guests. Whether they want it or not. I refer to glass bathroom doors. Could be worse. We stayed at a place in Metz a while back where they'd dispensed with the doors altogether.
