“Not a great family place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

First let me say that this hotel was booked for us, by someone else, and also very last minute. I believe it was the only place available in Bamberg.
My husband, 2 daughters (12 & 14), and I were traveling together, and we had to make a last-minute trip to Bamberg for my husband's business portion of the trip. Bamberg is a beautiful city with some great beer, so we were happy to go.
The hotel is right in the middle of the city, which was great, but noisy. While they had two rooms available for our family of four, the rooms were not adjoining. This is a huge issue for me. The rooms were very simple, but clean, and very small. The wifi in the room is not free, and neither is the sub-par breakfast. In fact, the breakfast was expensive when comparing it to the huge spreads we had at other hotels.
I think, for a single person spending one night in the city, this is an acceptable place, but I would not stay here again.

I stayed with my husband for only one night, the receptionist spoke in English to us (finally!!! it is really hard to find somebody in Bamberg that speaks English or at least makes the effort) a friendly receptionist, check in and check out fast and efficient, the room small but clean and perfect for one night, the only thing is that I requested a king size bed and got two single mattresses put together, didn't mind much however don't know why I had the option to choose that type of bed if in reality I am going to get something different.
All in all, we liked it and close to the city centre, I do recommend it.

Security level low: Reception desk most of the time was unmanned. Anyone could just walk in unnoticed and use the elevator.
Free WiFi: only in lobby, extremely slow, password changed hourly. I gave up and used the DSL connected pc in the lobby, also extremely slow. Attached printer had an "out of order" sticker for three days.
Room: adequate small size and clean, but smelly.
Bathroom: smallish, origin of the bad smell, tiles in shower area not very sparkling.
Still, I only paid a low early booking rate for my stay, so didn't complain - but certainly expected a more professionally run hotel, like other Ibis'es I have stayed at.

Well situated very close to the main sites, it lacks unfortunately hygien. Dust, spots are everywhere. Rooms small but rational. If you come by car, you actually need to use their park place. Then, at the best rate, one room for 2 with breakfast is 81 euro when adding BF and parking to the min 49 euro of a room.

We stayed one night in this middle-of-town hotel while we visited this wonderful city. The two couples both feel a hotel room is someplace to sleep and change clothes so the rooms were ideal, even if a bit small. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was satisfying. There is coffee available all day long in the breakfast room. Location is terrific for just walking around the city. We would stay there again.

We were here for 3 nights in November. Excellent location right next to the old town.
A typical Ibis - good value, small room, clean and good breakfast.
At the end of the day, you get exactly what you pay for.

The staff was very polite and professional.The location was perfect for visiting this beautiful city.Localizacion perfecta para vistar este preciosa ciudad.Personal amable y profesional.Visitamos Bamberg durante el mercado navideño y es un hotel perfecto a menos de 5 minutos del mercado y del casco antiguo.Desde la estacion son unos 15 minutos andando,pero recomiendo parar en una de sus estupendas cervecerias que quedan de camino.
