We spent one night at Hotel Krone when we were passing through Germany. Geiselwind is a small town, but this hotel is a little gem. When you enter the hotel, it's like you just stepped out of a time machine being warped back 20 years at minimum. The rooms however are comtemporary, with a television and (wired) internet acces. The room we had was also clean and had good beds. Before we left the following morning, we had breakfast downstairs, which was simple but offered enough choice to leave with a full stomach. So: when looking for a place to spend the night and you're nearby, visit Hotel Krone.

Are you travelling through Southern Germany on your way to your holiday destination and you need a short break and some time to relax?? This is the best stop! It is located in Geiselwind a town next to the Highway A3 Würzburg - Nürberg, so you don't lose much time finding a nice place to sleep. Meet the friendly staff, enjoy a good meal and your breakfast in their restaurant in Bavarian Style. The hotelrooms are nice and clean.
It is also the perfect place to start your beautiful holiday in Bavaria. Places like Rothenburg, Würzburg are not far from Geiselwind and you can enjoy the beautiful nature of Romantic Road. This hotel is loved by motorcyclists by the way, there are a lot of opportunities to make a nice motorcycle ride in the area!! So take a break and stop here!!

Stayed at hotel Krone for one night, traveling from the Netherlands to Austria.
Situated right in the centre of Geiselwind, next to the beautiful church.
Room very basic but clean, though the athmophere is a step back in time. Good do with a few
modern touches, as does the rest of the hotel interiour. Bathroom looked renewed. No hospitality tray, wich even in a basic hotel should be there, small balcony at the back of the hotel, poor view. However no problem for one night.
Had a meal in the restaurant, wich was very good. Breakfast was included this also was
sufficient. Geiselwind itself is situated next to the Autobahn A3, it just takes 5 minutes to get back on the Autobahn and proceed your journey.

Well, I booked the room just half an hour before we had an overnight break on the German Autobahn. The hotel is one thing in the middle of the village and the guest house is a 3 minutes walk away. Meals in the hotel were local food and good. The breakfast in the guesthouse was just a tiny bit poor. We slept very well, though a fan was running quite noisy until 22.00. This would not be a problem in another room, I guess.
Our room was nice, clean and sufficient - only that it was on the 3rd floor and there was no elevator was a bit difficult. But a hand for the baggage was offered immediately by the staff.
It is very close to the Autobahn but we heard no noise at all. If you need a nice place for a break on your way through Germany - this is a good recommendation.

We stopped overnight on our trip from Calais to Slovakia, for us this was a welcome stop after a day of driving.
We stayed in a family room which was just the job for two adults and two young children. The breakfast was very good and all in all the stay was very nice and good value.
The only thing that we would have liked is to have had was a kettle to make tea and coffee, but this is a traditional german Hotel and not a Holiday Inn.
We will use again !

Was excited to stay at the Krone again, this time with my bf, because it was so charming the first time. Well, as it turns out, last time I stayed at the old little guesthouse a few blocks away, which is closed in Winter. We stayed in the hotel proper this time (which clears up the mystery of why half the photos on here look nothing like the place I stayed the first time...). It was average at best.
I hasten to add that the people were just as nice, and so was the breakfast spread (if not even better), but the room was, not charming. It was very bare bones-y feeling, though they put little cute candies on the pillows and such. Cold floor with just a couple tiny bathmat rugs, broken tv and one light out (no biggie, since we were planning on going to sleep pretty soon, but might have been a bummer otherwise). The worst part of the room was the noise. It wasn't that the hotel was noisy, but that the rooms weren't really insulated at all. The doors must have had big gaps around them, because we were woken up by housekeeping just walking around the hall, cleaning other rooms (and we are NOT light sleepers), then could not fall back asleep, because every time we started, a door would close or someone would walk past the room, and it'd be super loud. :(

I think the Krone is a great little business - everyone I met there both times was super-friendly and helpful. I would just wait until Spring and make sure you stay in the little guesthouse, which is cozy, quiet, and cute as a button. The hotel building is much less comfy (but still a clean, friendly, place, and a good value).

Room Tip: Wait til spring and ask to stay in the guesthouse, not the hotel building.
