“Zur Stadt Mainz”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

The Zur Stadt Mainz is conveniently located within walking distance to the town centre & the Wurzburg residence. The premises are clean & functional. We were two adults and a child and the room did appear a bit cramped for us. The owner gentleman received us nicely, showed us the room and gave us a few tips on the places to visit with a map. He did help us to carry one of our suitcases up 3 floors. This is one thing with most lodgings of this sort that they do not have a lift but it should not be a problem if you have light luggage.
Breakfast is decent value for money though you don't get anything hot except the tea/coffee. Also note that the restaurant is only open for lunch and dinner for large groups; though there are several restaurants close by, this was inconvenient for us we had to make another trip outside with the child. Not a problem though if your child is more grown up and manageable.

The place could do with more lighting and more genuine warmth from the hotel owner/ staff as is expected in the hospitality industry. A traveler carries home memories of the people he meets rather than all the buildings and fancy places to visit.

Room was very clean in a rustic, charming setting with the basics. Close to center of Wurzburg and easy walk to the Main river for drinks, dinner on the bridge with its view of the fortress across the river. Staff were cheerful and very friendly. Parking is available but close quarters to maneuver into. Again staff were helpful with parking.Breakfast was plentiful with meats, eggs, rolls ,juice, etc, Short walking distance to Residenz.

If you are interested in seeing the Residenz in Wurzburg, this historic property is in a great location within walking distance. The breakfast was also delicious although there were no hot entrees. The rooms were quite basic and in our room on the 3rd floor, the internet shut off at 10 PM and did not come back on for the rest of our stay. (one night) Our room fronted the street and the was a lot of noise from patrons of a nearby bar until 2 AM. There is no elevator.

Room Tip: Ask for a room off the street. If you have trouble carrying bags up many stairs, request a first fl...

We chose this hotel partly due to its historic past and the fact that Frommers recommended it. We were not disappointed. Andrew made us feel especially welcome by taking our luggage and carrying it upstairs for us. After that he spent time recommending places for us to see while in Wurzburg. Our room was clean, nicely decorated and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was a true feast ,Franconian style. We just stuck to the basic bread, cheeses and coldcuts. Maybe another time we will be more adventurous at breakfast.

Beware! No fun if they put you in a room on the 3rd floor with no lift but 20kg of luggage!!
The breakfast was a bit weird. Not a traditional selection... fried cold chicken breast and lots of dried fish...

I'm disappointed to see the less-than-stellar reviews for this hotel because I found it to be absolutely charming and pleasant. The owner and staff were all so welcoming. The owner provided us with maps, told us a bit about Wurzburg history, and recommended places to see and eat. He also gave some helpful tips, such as take the bus up to the Fortress because it is a steep climb up.

The breakfast here is amazing. They provide quite a spread of cheese, meats, fish, fruits, and breads.

i found the rooms here comparable to other budget hotels in Germany. Everything was clean, the bed was comfortable, and it was nice that they provided soap and shampoo. When we asked for an iron and ironing board, the owner went through a lot of trouble to procure us one (he had to borrow something from his neighbors!). I also love some of the small details in this hotel - the handwritten notices about breakfast in multiple languages, the Bavarian pretzel door handles.

One of the only downsides is that some windows look out onto the street and there are sometimes rowdy revelers across the street. This is only an issue if you open the window at night.

Overall I highly recommend this hotel!

Our guidebook (Frommer's) highly rated this place, but on the whole we were disappointed. Let me first say that the room itself *was* comfortable, clean, tastefully decorated without being fancy, and the bed and duvets were firm, clean and warm. You could do a whole lot worse than here.

However, it isn't quite a gem. We walked in to register, and the proprietress could hardly speak English, which I do realise isn't mandatory, but at least a good language for an innkeeper to know. The reception area was very dark and gloomy-- even allowing for the traditional German look. The outer hallway was cold and not attractive. There was no lift, so we heaved our cases up two flights of stairs without help. The walls are lined with favorable articles about the place, but they looked old.

The bathroom was clean, but the soaps supplied were too fruity-smelling to be dignified. The bathroom was tiled with round tiles, millions of them....like being surrounded by all these white buttons. We had a shower, which was adequate for us, the stream strong, plenty of hot water. No shampoo or conditioner supplied, unless you count the body wash which doubles as a shampoo. Towels somewhat thin. Glasses not very clean-- found a few gnats in them.

Internet is free and the connection seems good. This hotel is reputed to have a fine restaurant, but we were so off-put by the cloying darkness of the dining room that we went across the street to the St. Joseph restaurant for dinner instead, which was simple but quite good. Zur Stadt Mainz did offer an excellent breakfast buffet, but even with the lights on it seemed dark and gloomy. The waiter, however, is a sweetheart.

So this was what we would call an adequate, but definitely not stellar place. It was near to the sights we wanted to see, which was a plus. But it does have a feeling of having seen better days. It is not a cheerful place to stay. I got the impression that the proprietress is simply too tired and old to care much about excellence any more, which I can sympathise with-- but it's no way to run a guesthouse.
