Wandering around this lovely little UNESCO heritage site is a great way to spend an afternoon and evening. You don't need more than one night here, that's the perfect amount of time to wander around and enjoy the smoked beer unique to this town. There is a university here which I think is what contributes to more of a nightlife... More

There are only twenty rooms in this hotel and if location is your main interest, then this should suffice. Several drawbacks prevent a higher rating. They advertise on-site parking but only if you have a car that's short and lower than shoulder height. The nearest parking garage is a substantial distance from the hotel. The room was clean but due... More

If you want to spent a weekend, or a few days in Bamberg, this hotel is a very good choice. Only short distances to walk to the famous sightseeing spots in town. And you can have a nice and tasty meal of local cuisine (and of couse a good beer) in the hotels "Biergarten"!

Nice hotel in the middle of the altstadt. The hotel is nothing special, but just fine, and it has a perfect location in this fantastic middle-age town. Remember to try out the local breweries, especially the Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier, a lager with a kind od smokey taste...really good!

Stayed at this hotel after not long arriving in Germany for a holiday. The hotel is located right in the old part of the town, which allows you to just park the car and walk every where. We were in Bamberg just before Christmas, and the local markets are only a short walk from the hotel and have many Christmas... More

Very nice hotel in the very centre of the oldcity. Near the Dom and all the places which are protected from UNESCO. Lively place near breweries, bars etc. Some disadvantages the breakfast was rather poor for this category and the staff did not know how to smile

This hotel is very confortable and characteristic, perfectly located in the historic center of the town. Very good the breakfast. The only problem is to park if you have a crossover or a Suv....the garage is only for a maximum high of 1,50 vehicles and is impossible to park in the immediatly sorroundings because all parking areas are at disposal...

This hotel, right in the middle of the old town, is full of surprises. The bedrooms, though small, have modern bathrooms and comfortable beds. The hotel is right opposite a bier halle, which serves the famous Bamberg smoked beer. The patrons spill out onto the road - so it can be quite noisy on a mild night - even in... More
