“Wonderful Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2009

Great service. Owner/operators made us feel like family. Room was much nicer and more modern than anticipated. Free Internet terminal and honor bar for juice and beer in the lobby. Finding the hotel was another thing... My inexperience for small towns and roads that were so tiny made locating the hotel a hunt. Once I realized that the alley just a few feet wider than the car was our street everything was fine. Would recommend the hotel highly.

The Barock hotel was located just behind the Dom in a quiet side street. Our hosts were exceptionally pleasant and helpful and our room cosy and just the right size for two people. A short stroll in one direction took us to the Dom and in another to the old town. Bamberg was one of our favourite towns. Highly recommended.

We found this hotel on TripAdvisor so thanks to previous reviewers!

The best thing about this hotel: it's inside the historic part of the town so location could not be better! If you are driving, I hope you have GPS -- otherwise you're sure you're driving where no car should be to get to this hotel. It only has half a dozen parking spots (we got lucky) but there is a city parking lot nearby.

The rooms & bathrooms are simple but pleasant -- and both our rooms had views of the Cathedral! The breakfast (included) was lovely [cheeses, meats, yogurts, juices, breads, coffee (even decaf!), tea all presented in a room that feels like you're inside a cloister!]

We interacted several times with the couple who run this hotel, and they were very helpful (take his advice on where to go for wine-tasting, he's an enthusiast and will steer you right!).

One possible negative for those who like to sleep in -- there are 50 churches in Bamberg and apparently they believe no one should still be sleeping after 7 a.m.! I'll post pictures soon.

I stayed at the hotel 2 days with my parents and I really loved it. A couple manages the hotel and both are quite friendly. Rooms are clean, breakfast excelent and location of the hotel very good - closer to touristic sights. With 5 min you come to the most important ones and the other ones are quite closer too.

  • Liked — Near the historic sights
  • Disliked — A little bit difficulty when arriving by car

Bamberg was the first city of 5 that we visited in Germany and we had a great start here. We loved Frau Bosch and almost felt like we were staying with a relative. She spoke perfect English, gave us lots of assistance with directions, parking, and things to do, and took care of us for breakfast each morning. After the first day she remembered which of us wanted tea vs coffee and that we all wanted a soft-boiled egg.

The rooms were very large and quite clean, and I loved being woken by the cathedral bells every morning. Another nice touch was the refrigerator on the ground floor which acts as a minibar for the entire hotel--just help yourself at any time and keep a list.

We walked to most everything but if you aren't used to walking a lot you may need to cab or drive depending on where you eat or drink. The breweries in Bamberg were impressive and had amazing beer. We will definitely be back.

  • Liked — Christine Bosch, and the location

We stayed here based on TripAdbvisor reviews opting to pay a little more including cab fare from the train station for location anbd ambience. it is a very short walk to the Rathaus, Dom, brew houses, restauruants, and, closest of all, the Dom. English-speaking staff is quite helopful Refrigerator at base of stairs includes beverages purchasable on honor system. Sekt for Sunday breakfast! The only downside as I see if would be attempting to drive to this hotel w/o GPS and most likely the necessity to use public parking. Would love to visit again during summer, and if we do, will definitely try to stay here.

This was our second visit to Bamberg and to the Barock Hotel. We love it here. Quaint hotel with spacious double rooms and bathrooms. I had to ask for a hairdryer but that was no problem. The breakfast on the first morning was great (a Sunday) however after that there was little to choose from (eggs & croissants disappeared!) but we always managed to find something. Staff are very friendly and helpful and despite the bells ringing every morning, we will be back.
