This property is way above town in a largely residential neighborhood on the Jakobsberg. As such there's a great view into the valley, but virtually nothing else you can walk to. Comfortably.
OK, it's a nice walk, but a long one -- I'm guessing a half mile -- down the hill. And hiking back up, especially after downing a few drinks, is likely an undertaking better suited to the young and/or the fit. Women: I wouldn't recommend climbing this hill alone after dark as the path is largely unlit.
There is (very) limited bus service. And, Yes, there's parking up at the hotel, but who wants to drive? The whole appeal of a place like Bamberg, "Word Heritage Site", largely undamaged during World War II, is the strolling and ogling and hanging about. Should you arrive during one of the (many) holidays celebrated here, you'll find a lot of the streets closed to motor vehicle traffic; then the medieval town becomes a gridlock nightmare.
So while I can't complain about the service, or breakfast, or rooms, it's the view that sells this place. If you feature gazing into lovely Franconian vistas from the outskirts, this is for you. If you'd prefer to be nearer the center of things, go elsewhere.
One more thing. This is another of those hotels that's decided to encourage intimacy among its guests. Whether they want it or not. I refer to glass bathroom doors. Could be worse. We stayed at a place in Metz a while back where they'd dispensed with the doors altogether.
