“We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

The hotel is located a few minutes walk from the train station and about 10 minutes from the pedestrian heart of Bamberg.

On 3 separate occasions over the course of 10 days, we stayed in 3 different rooms (as we traveled through Franconia) and all were clean, modern, and soundproof.

And then of course there's the buffet breakfast: everything you could wish for, and delicious and plentiful.

On top of all that, staff at the BW are helpful and friendly.

I decided to take my wife to Germany and being an army brat, my father was stationed in Bamberg so being back brought back wonderful memories of this town. In any case, we decided to listen to the recommendations of Tripadvisor and stay here. I must say that it was probably one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The location was phenominal and is about a 10 minute walk into the old town. The rooms were clean and there was free internet access there. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and excellent. Whether business or pleasure, I really recommend this place here. Also, it was close to the train station as well.

For a little late night snack, there is a pizza joint across the street from the hotel which I think delivers. It appears to be a chain pizzeria but it hits the spot.

Try as I might, the only criticism I have is that the bathroom lighting, although bright, cast dark shadows on the face. Excellent reception, plentiful information including city map, large breakfast buffet with everything from smoked salmon to pastry, white & dark bread, American coffee + espresso coffee machine. The service was attentive and quick. When the weather permits, there are table on the terrace. Reasonable priced garage parking under the hotel, free WLAN, excellent location only minutes from the old city. We would certainly choose this hotel again, although not cheap, the hotel is worth the price.

We had a very pleasant 2 nights in Bamberg at the Best Western. Our room was comfortable, clean, and they honored my request on booking for a quieter room-- we were way at the end of a hall, far from the elevator. The location is excellent (easy and scenic walk into the old town) and the hotel comfortable to return to at night. Our only gripe would be that the breakfast could be a lot better-- there was a large spread, but the quality seemed low and very "big box hotel." For the price we were paying (€122/night for our double with breakfast) I think breakfast could be improved.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper ask for a room away from the elevators and at the end of a hall. We ha...

This is our 2nd stay at this hotel. We stayed there when they first opened 3 years ago. Many of the same staff are still there. Always the sign of a good hotel. We arrived late morning but were still able to check in and go to our room. The same one as our last visit which we had requested by phone just 2 days before. Staff are helpful cheerful and very professional. The breakfast is excellent with a very wide choice. Really sets you up for the day. Location is excellent. Just 5 mins walk from both the town centre and the railway station. No tea and coffee making facilities in room but both are available free of charge in the reception area. Only minor downside is that very little literature is available in English on the town and surrounding area. Will definitely use this hotel again when visiting our family in Germant

We walked in to this hotel without a reservation and were lucky enough to get 2 of 3 rooms remaining. The front desk staff couldn't have been more accomodating and friendly, especially Viola, whose English was impeccable! The rooms were clean, comforable and inviting and our view was very nice. We opened the windows and a wonderful breeze cooled us off. Rooms are updated and have a safe. Wi-fi was free in our room with a password. They have a washer and dryer on the top floor which is very, very convenient and we took full advantage, haha!! Hotel is in a great location, with a short pleasant walk into old Bamberg. Or, you can rent bikes from the hotel or a bike shop located just a few minutes away on foot. There's complimentary water/coffee/tea in the lobby 24/7. Breakfast is wonderful and the breakfast staff are very helpful and attentive. There's a Bio supermarket and a bank, right next door and the hotel has underground parking. Highly recommend!!!

Room Tip: Corner room has 2 views. 2 windows and lovely breeze.

The Best Western Hotel in Bamberg was one of our favorites during our 2 weeks in Germany. We had reserved two rooms and were updated to two suites as we registered. The staff was very helpful. The rooms were large with updated bathrooms all of which were very clean. The location is excellent, just a short 5 min. walk to the city center. The breakfast was delicious with the opportunity to sit either inside or out on the terrace. There is also a garage and a small maket next door. One of our favorite hotels on the trip!
