Hotel Residenzschloss Bamberg occupies a former palace in the heart of historic Bamberg, walking distance from the most interesting part of town. It is a lovely, grand hotel with very professional service. However, the rooms vary SIGNIFICANTLY. We booked 2 rooms. My wife and I were given a small, modern room in one of the rear buildings. We had to walk down halls, through passageways between buildings, take a couple of elevators, go through doors, in a drawn out effort to find our room. There seem to be 3 buildings; the middle one apparently is very low-scale and stinks of cigarette smoke. The rear building was much better, but our room rather small and kind of lost. Our other family members occupied a suite in the front, main building, and it was spacious, luxurious, offered a lovely view, and felt quite grand. My wife and I wound up upgrading (for 10 euros, for some reason!) to a suite in the main building, and it was a HUGE improvement. So... I can recommend this hotel, but only if you book the suites in the main building with a view to the courtyard in front of the hotel. Pay the extra money; it makes all the difference. When we visited the restaurant at about 7:30 p.m. for coffee and dessert, after the front desk clerk told us we could do that, we were told that the kuchen and cakes they had in a display all day had been put away at 7 pm. Our server checked with the kitchen, then told us that they could serve us dessert anyway. Then another server came by to say the kitchen had told him they could not, a brief discussion ensued, and in the end we had our cake. Very strange. The breakfast buffet was not spectacular, but it was ok. Anyhow, I am sure that if you book one of the luxurious suites in the main, front building, you will be happy with your stay.
