Hotel Alte Canzley
Ranked #4 of 13 Hotels in Wittenberg
Reviewed November 14, 2009

My husand and I stayed at this hotel for one night in November. We payed 94 euro for a double room which also inlcuded breakfast. Germany is one of the more inexpensive countries to visit in western Europe so I probaby could have stayed at a nice hotel in Wittenberg for much cheaper than this but I chose this hotel because of its location and good reviews. Don't get me wrong, this is a beautful hotel but if I went back to Wittenberg I don't think I would stay here again because though it is nice there is nothing special about it so I think I would save money and stay somewhere cheaper. The hotel was nicely decorated, the room was clean and spacious, the staff were very friendly, and the location cannot be beat as it is directly across the street from the Castle Church. The breakfast was mediocre but the lunch we had at the restaurant was very good. I really enjoyed visiting Wittenberg as I love Martin Luther and would definitely recommend a visit to this cute little medieval town with amazing Reformation history.

We stayed in the 'Peter the Great' room. A bit on the expensive side, but if you're in Wittenberg on the Luther trail, there really is no better place to stay. The room looks right out over THE doorway where Luther nailed the 95 theses. The hotel has its own Reformation history - it's part of the experience. The room is HUGE (so big it needs capital letters), and yes, I felt like Peter the Great in it. Includes a kitchette (a sink, fridge, crochery, but no microwave), cable TV (not much good for non-German speakers), hairdryer, writing desk, and fast internet (using a cable). Brekky was included - rolls, ham and cheese selections, fruit, cereal, some kind of slices, boiled eggs. Lady at the front desk was helpful, and spoke English. The room was so nice, we contemplated skipping the sightseeing and just staying in. Brilliant.

Even if a person is NOT interested in history, this hotel will stir interest. For Luther fans nothing can compare. Waking up next to the Thesentuer is an unforgettable experience. Incredible also to think that Peter The Geat and Charles XII also stayed here. The hotel itself is wonderful. The rooms spacious and cheerful, the amenities comfortable and modern, and the food great. Just an absolutely wonderful place to which I will want to return often

According to the locals we talked to in Lutherstadt Wittenberg this is one of the more expensive hotels in town. It is probably also the best, and in our opinion was quite reasonably priced. Free parking was conveniently located in the back. The reception was only open in the evening and while they did not speak English very well, check-in was flawless. The building, conveniently located next door to the Tourist Information Bureau. While it doesn't look like it, the building was about 350 years old, but has been impeccably remodeled. Our room was up a winding staircase in a very old stone tower, however there was also a good lift. The rooms do not have numbers, but instead are labeled with names. We were in the Michael Agricola room, and access was by a computer-controlled card you held up to the door lock. Our room was immense, and very clean and well appointed. It had two easy chairs, in addition to a writing desk and chair. The beds were very comfortable, with a nice bathroom and a reasonable sized shower. There was even a kitchenette, with small refrigerator. Our three large windows, from one floor up, looked directly across the street at the Castle Church doors (see photo) where Martin Luther allegedly hung his 95 theses on October 31, 1517 and launched the Reformation. It was hard to imagine a better setting. We had dinner at the hotel on two different nights. In neither case did our waitress speak a word of English, and even though there was an English menu she had to match it up with the German version to figure out what we were ordering. The food was excellent, and the outdoor portion of the seating located in the courtyard behind the hotel was quiet and peaceful. Breakfast was very good, and while the only hot item was boiled eggs, the breads, cheeses, meats, and yogurt was excellent. I cannot say enough good things about his hotel. If you are a Martin Luther fan this is a place where you must stay, and for sure ask for the Michael Agricola room. You won’t be sorry you chose this fine hotel.
