I usually stay opposite at the Fassla but this year friends booked me into the Spezial which like the Fassla is also a brewery with rooms. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and their was an excellent buffet breakfast. The food is traditional hearty German foder.

Basically, we stayed in rooms above the Spezial Brewery. Everything was nice and clean. No ELEVATORS, just steep stairs. Not much English spoken here ... coordinate via their website. Good value and within easy walking distance to everything wonderful in Bamberg.

Both are excellent.The rooms are clean and comfortable and you can have a beer with your breakfast if you are so minded.Add in that the Spezial is in an excellent location - a 10 minute walk from the station...

We stayed one night at this brewery guesthouse, on the first leg of our German brewery tour. It was wonderful. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with a contemporary decor that incorporates parts of the authentic 16th century structure. Great little view of the street from our room - we could open the window and watch the people. Parking was... More

We stayed at Brauerei Spezial for two nights in October. Our room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the street out front, but we didn't hear any street noise at all. It was interesting to watch the early morning hustle & bustle on the street from our window. The room was quite spacious with a large bathroom. It was very... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights during a train trip through Germany. It is only about a 10 min walk from the train station, and even shorter across the bridge to the center of town. The rooms are right above the pub, but we didn't hear any noise from it at all, although we were up 2... More

Brauerai Spezial was probably one of our favourite stays of our Germany trip. It is located within an easy walk from the Hauptbahnhof (main train station), before you cross the bridge into the center of town. The accommodation is located above the brewery and appeared newly built. We had a large bedroom and clean and spacious modern bathroom. Breakfast was... More

This is a brewery with rooms above. We stayed in the newly renovated rooms (we were the first) and they are lovely. Well thought out. Breakfast is hearty (included). And you can have a bedtime beer before going to your room. Easy walk from the train station. Easy walk over the bridge to the "old town". Warning: no elevator. You... More

“Ask for a room at the back away from busy road but you could be waken by the brewery at the back”

“We chose a room with ensuite, which was lovely.”
 of 5 bubbles Zoz, May 9, 2014 | Read review
“The only downside is that we got a room facing the street and we had 2 or 3 weekend nights of interrupted sleep due to the drunken citizens walking home and singing/screaming at the top of their lungs. Assume that in the winter, with windows closed, the problem would be less. However, to make sure, ask for a room in the back, away from the street. However, if you need a room for 3 or 4 persons, those are all in the front.”
 of 5 bubbles DianneM636, Nov 13, 2013 | Read review
“Rooms on the front may occasionally suffer from noise from "over refreshed" revellers and those on the back will have the sounds of a brewery starting its daily routine (music to MY ears). But neither is a problem.”
