“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

The hotel is amazing. Best location in Bamberg, excellent restaurant with a nice biergarten. The room is really charming, clean, the bathroom is not so small. Everything was great when we were there, and the price was really fair. Definitely recommended!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We loved this hotel. The 2 double rooms we had were just average and comfy but for the amount of time in them who cares about room and style? The shower and bath were large which was nice. The room itself was a little cramped and a bit noisy at night but we used ear plugs. Our room looked right out on the beer gardens, so of course we knew it would be. Our car couldn't fit in the small car storage lifts so we ended up parking pretty far away in a garage, with 10 minute walk back to hotel, that was only downside. They did allow us to pull right up to the door to offload the luggage. But the location and the views all around were awesome, so close to the cathedral and old brewery restaurants, the river, and shopping. The desk was very helpful, provided a stadtplan, their own restaurant and beer garden, breakfast was very good. Elevator was nice in such an old hotel. Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: If you bring a car plan to walk a bit to nearest public parking, unless your car is very small, like...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

This hotel is in the middle of the action in terms of things to see and do, with lots of old buildings, old restaurants, the bishop's old palace, the old castle and the old cathedral all just a few steps away from the lobby. Don't come with a car, as parking is extremely limited, hard to access even with a small car and very expensive (15 euros a night in addition to the room). The food is okay, but better in the surrounding restaurants. The service is fair, most of the staff seem to be putting in their hours as required without much enthusiasm for what they do. Rooms are very small and cramped, minimally furnished and very expensive....essentially you are paying for the location, the room is thrown in as an extra. Don't plan on spending a lot of time in your room.

Room Tip: Higher up rooms have better views.

Only stayed here due to the location and price compared to other hotels. It was very expensive for what was offered for a double room. Cable TV, no mini bar/fridge. The breakfast which was included in the room rate was appallingly insufficient.

It was accidental choice of the the accomodation in the charming center of historical Bamberg.
Unfortunately, the hotel is very avarage, with no spirit and character. The rooms with old furnitures, but tidy enough and clean. The surrounding is quite noisy / night pedestrians returning from restaurants and bars, bells from the church tower/.
The positiv point was the offer of free garage for my car.
The breakfast was very common, nothing special to remember.
The meal room needs for sure refurbishment.
Like for the 3 stars hotel in the off season winter weekend in the almost empty town, the price was quite high - 90 € for double room.

  • Liked — free garage in the downtown
  • Disliked — no character
