“Great hotel”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

We parked our rental car and walked to all the sights in Augsburg . Great location and lovely, large rooms. We had lots of space and a lovely view out of two large windows. The bath was updated, storage space was plentiful, drinks in the minibar were free! People at the desk were very helpful. There is a nice breakfast room with the usual European breakfast assortment, and it is included with the room we had . We reserved a comfort double room, I believe.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the front courtyard .

We visited Augsburg mid December to experience the German Christmas market. The Dom hotel is located in the shadow of Augsburg Cathedral, which was founded in the 8th century. The hotel itself is a quiet family owned establishment, very clean and practical. There is no bar here or night porter, but as you are only 5 mins walk from town this is not a problem. If it's a night cap you're after the hotel provides complimentary water, orange and beer in your fridge.

The breakfast is served buffet style, with a selection of meats, bread, fruit, cheese & cereals. You can also enjoy freshly squeezed orange juice. I found the breakfast to be ok, but often wished there was more to it. But maybe that's because I'm used to the "Full Irish" breakfast (an artery clogging delight) when on vacation!

Our room was located at the back of the hotel on the top floor (really an attic room). The room was large with everything you could need inside. The desk could accommodate even the messiest of workloads. Couches and TV are also at your disposal (with 2-3 English speaking channels mainly news). We also had our own private balcony with views of snow capped roofs all around.

I found all the staff working at the hotel to be welcoming & friendly. It is really a lovely hotel in a great location. There is also a small pool & a sauna for guests to use. When we visited you had the whole area to yourself. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel in future. It would suit families, couples, singles and the room we had would suit the business traveller also.

I was told this is 3-star so my expectations were low. Imagine my surprise at the hu-u-uge room and well-appointed bathroom, private balcony, (partial) view of the Dom, free parking. Gloriously soft duvets, super clean sheets changed everyday (even though we asked the cleaner not to, she insisted saying it was their policy)

Breakfast was more than adequate, a typically hearty German fruehstuck. I appreciated the different kinds of nuts and cereals.

We were not bothered by the strange twist + turn to reach our room (312) taking stairs to reach the top. I was told it was 3-star because of these stairs....and the small reception. Goodness, the jolly lady at reception is one of the reasons i will return -- fluent in English, ever so helpful, always smiling.

FInally the location. We were in Augsburg for the Christmas market and this was 10min stroll downhill towards the Rathaus. Perfect.

I was travelling to Augsburg on business and found this hotel quite charming. It is located about 1 block from a 1000 year old church near city center. It is about a 1/2 mile walk. Rates come with free parking, breakfast, and 4 drinks in a minibar. The rooms were large, and there is a small pool, exercise room with aerobic equipment and saunas. The building is very well updated and I was quite toasty in my room, despite the weather outside. Breakfast is typical German fare, but what would you expect in Germany?

Room Tip: There are stairs that have to be navigated, but elevator to all the floors. No bellman, but the des...

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Dom Hotel in Oct. 2012. We are frequent travelers to Germany and found the Dom to be one of the best overall values we've experienced. The building is beautiful as are the rooms. The sitting area is one of the most attractive and comfortable we've ever experienced - modern leather chairs, computer, free coffee machine, great light, etc.

One thing we especially appreciated was the quality of the Internet service. The signal was very strong and we could operate two devices simultaneously. On this trip we stayed at 5 other hotels and the Dom had, hands down, the best Internet service.

As mentioned in other reviews, the location is terrific with good local restaurants quite close. The staff recommendation for dinner the first night was so good we returned the second night.

We didn't use the spa, but it looked quite welcoming.

This hotel is situate about 10 minutes walk from the centre of the city. The main cathedral is only a few minutes walk and there are local restaurants close by.
The staff/owners of the hotel are very friendly and helpful and only too happy to recommend local restaurants etc.
Parking is available and on arrival the reception were extremely helpful in providing a parking space even though the car park at the front of the hotel was full.
Rooms are spacious (with a balcony) and very clean.
Breakfast buffet provided a very good choice.
A good hotel conveniently located for a city visit.

Room Tip: Several Rooms have a balcony.

I've stayed a few days ago. My room was #305, which has a balcony where we can see a city view but there're too many stairs to reach the room. I'm not sure it's because of the old building, however, I had to go up another stairs from the 3rd floor elevator. It's so unfcomfortable bacause I had a heavy trunk. Anyway, the breakfast was good and staffs were kind.
