The breakfast was great with most things you would ask for including pancakes. parking is under the hote and care must be taken to find this as the enterence is before the hotel on a one way street. did not eat here in the evening but went to the old town. I will return when next in bamberg

We enjoyed 3 nights at this wonderful hotel and a dinner. Breakfast was phenomenal, the staff was wonderful, the bedrooms were large and very clean, the bathroom was modern and spacious, and the location is just 2 blocks away from the bridge taking you to Old Town. The only thing that it did not have was air conditioning and a bar to sit down and have a drink before dinner or bedtime. I would definitely go there again!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room facing the street--quiet at night!

With parking underneath,the hotel is ideally and conveniently placed to explore the amazing medieval town of Bamberg. It's just a few doors from two traditional brewpubs which Bamberg is famous for.
The rooms are good - although mine did smell a bit of cigarette smoke despite being a no-smoking room.
Breakfast is excellent and included.
It was an easy walk into the mediaval town centre and also in the other direction to the railway station which I used to travel to Frankfurt and to Nurembourg.
The reception staff were very helpful - they printed our boarding cards for our flights.
I didn't work out how to use the TV in my room but there were too many things to see and do in Bamberg for that to be a problem.
Main downfall was no Wi-fi.

Room Tip: Ask for advice on getting the TV to work

The staff here goes out of their way to accommodate you. The location is great, because it is very close to the old part of town. It was very clean. However, there are some negatives. The room was very small, There was no air conditioning. The TV was difficult to operate, and it had very few English speaking channels.

Room Tip: Do not get a room facing the street in hot weather. You need to open the window because of no AC an...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights for a romantic weekend in Bamberg.

For the price, it would have been nice if the "double" bed hadn't been just two singles pushed together (two single duvets used together too!) However, the room was spacious and very clean, the bathroom was also faultless. Breakfast was included and was very delicious, with extremely friendly staff to guide us through. I particularly appreciated the wide range of teas that they had available there.

The location is excellent and was a short walk from all the sights of Bamberg. Lots of lovely restaurants and pubs within walking distance.

Hotel Europa was a short walk from everything in town--restaurants, brewery, Christmas market, and other attractions. Staff went out of their way to make visitors feel comfortably at home. Rooms are small and cozy, but I had everything I needed--great shower, TV, hair dryer, plenty of storage, mini-fridge. Staff waved goodbye at the door as we left. The breakfast buffet was fresh, plentiful, with plenty of variety. Good choice in Bamberg.

The Hotel Europa is just across the river from the old city of Bamberg -- very convenient to the tourist sites, though not in the tourist district itself. There is a pedestrian bridge less than one block from the hotel into the old town. The hotel is clean and modern, and the desk staff speak reasonably good English.

I had a few minor things to criticize, but they apply to almost any tourist hotel. First, every horizontal surface in my room (and bathroom) was covered with something. Getting settled in I had to move all the unnecessary junk to one table and put a lamp on the floor to make room for my computer. Second, there was a small leak in the bathroom that led to recurring wetness on the bathroom floor -- annoying to step into late at night. These problems however should not be magnified. I've rarely stayed in a tourist-level hotel that didn't have some kind of minor problem.

On the plus side, the in-room ethernet is free and very fast -- very impressive!

Overall, this is a good choice for the price. No disasters, no regrets. Just a good (not great) tourist hotel.
