Wurzburg Old Town is walking distance from "The Alter Kranen" . Good restaurants are within easy walking distance. Parking building is available close to hotel.The hotel is very clean and comfortable, reasonably priced (under 100euro) and a very good breakfast is included. The hotel reception has an iPad you can borrow for an hour free of charge to check your e-mail.
When in Wurzburg, we always stay at the Alter Kranen.

Room Tip: From the rooms overlooking the River Main, you can also see the Castle and the Bridge. Very scenic v...

We stayed here overnight on the last leg of a long trip. The hotel is very nicely decorated and very inviting. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Our room had everything required for a good night's sleep. The breakfast room was very nice and the breakfast more than sufficient with all kinds of meat, cheese, bread, fruit, etc. It was a good value for the dollars spent - 99 Euros, including breakfast.

We had a room facing the river, very beautiful view. A bit noisy though because there is also a busy road and walking path along the river that gets a lot of traffic. However, they do have quieter rooms away from the river upon request. Spacious, clean and well appointed, convenient location, close to everything we wanted to see. A quick walk to the Residenz. Good breakfast included. Good value.

This hotel has a great location, about 200 meters from the Market Square yet quiet at night. It is down a narrow side street and runs parallel with the Mainz Canal. If you ask for a River view room you will see the boat traffic as well as the Fortress and Old Bridge. Very pretty. entry is via a heavy glass door and a small lobby which is not always manned. Ring the buzzer and someone will appear.
There is limited garage accommodation but I noticed a public car park on an adjacent street.
The best thing about it is the staff who are very amenable and willing to help with anything you need to know. Everyone including the housekeepers has reasonable English language skills.
Rooms are on the small side but have air conditioning and heating, a mini bar and a smallish but modern bathroom. Breakfast is a simple buffet but OK. Internet is complimentary and fast but not in our room which was 205.

We really enjoyed our stay and found this family run property to be an excellent 3 star and good value.

Room Tip: Rooms on the river side have a good view but room 205 had slow internet.

Stayed in the hotel beginning of March. Rooms are just ok. Bathroom looked just renovated. Comfortable rooms without luxury. Very nice and welcoming hosts.

Breakfast was great with several food choices.

Fortress view was great!!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor! Views are great!

Wurzburg’s hotel Alter Kranen was a delight. At the time of booking, some months before our stay, I was unable to secure a river side room with fortress view, in my email to confirm my city side room, I said I would appreciate a swap if a cancellation made this possible. On arrival in Wurzburg by train, we walked from the train station to the hotel, about 15 minutes, though a tram route ran very close. I was over the moon when on check in we indeed had the river view I had wanted. The hotel staff were happy to store our luggage before check in which allowed us to go exploring. There were bars and cafes nearby and a very short stroll to shopping areas. The breakfast was fresh and plentiful, the room 107, clean and well equipped with a never-the-less small bathroom with funky led shower head (which I named the disco shower) and a view to die for. The position was fantastic, a two minute walk to the Alter Maine Brucke which is THE place to hang out and have a wine with the hundreds of others doing the same. Over all Wurzburg was a surprise hit with my husband and I, for its lively scene and lovely position on the Maine River.

Room Tip: Room 107 has terriffic view over the bridge and fortress marienberg

This hotel offered a private parking garage, which was lucky because there is no other parking. The lobby is tiny. There is an elevator. Breakfast was typical of Germany with cold cuts and cheeses. The bed was hard. The room facing the street was quiet. One can walk all over town from here. The Alte Mainbrucke is a minute away. The receptionist was helpful with directions.
