“Very nice hotel, friendly staff, good bar, great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

We visited Bamberg for a weekend in June and took advantage of one of the many special deals this hotel has to offer (2 nights, breakfast both days and one dinner in the hotel included). This ended up being cheaper than just booking 2 nights outside the "package", but in hindsight I wish we would have done rather than going with the package deal. The reason is that (a) there were no options/choices for the meal at all, and although the food was very good some people in our party (including my dad to whom we had given this trip as a birthday present) really did not care for it (main course was veal, medium rare) and (b) that we had small children with us for whom this high end restaurant was not the right place. Otherwise, we were very happy with the hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean, they have a very nice bar, service is exceedingly friendly, and their breakfast buffet may have been the best I have ever seen. The hotel is located immediately on the river (approximately 10 minutes from the famous "little Venice" on the riverfront. You can walk along the river right into downtown, which is also nice, and a little bit down the road we found a very scenic path leading up to the Michaelsberg. We would definitively stay here again, but probably not with a package deal.

We travel a lot and we had the most friendly welcome at this hotel. The staff throughout our stay were all friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. The hot buffet breakfast gave you lots of choices and again the service was excellent. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and we would definitely recommend it and will visit again. It is only a short walk into the old town but this hotel makes it much easier for access and parking.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel while attending a conference. The hotel is an old converted hospital and retains some lovely old touches of its previous life. Our room was in the front building with a view on to Sandstrasse. The room was very spacious, comfortable and very quiet with almost 2 rooms the entrance way was so big. The bathroom was equipped with a large shower and and while not huge was very clean and well stocked with toiletries and towels. Robes and slippers were also provided which was a nice touch as were the gummi bears on the pillow!
Breakfast was a huge buffet with a large assortment of hot and cold food on offer. We also eat a couple of times in the bar and while it was a bit pricey it was good (we both had very large salads served with some very tasty bread).The Weiss beer was delicious, a speciality of Bamberg. Staff at all times were courteous and extremely helpful even advising us that for internet we should use the computers in the lobbey as the in room wifi is very expensive. I would love to return to this hotel maybe in summer when you could enjoy the many beer gardens and all the lovely restaurants and walks along the river. That being said a visit in snowy January was extremely enjoyable and quite romantic with mugs of gluhwein after a stroll around the old city which is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms in the first building seem to be the nicest.

We booked a deluxe dbl at this hotel. Our room was in the back section of the hotel with a view of the courtyard and front building.
The room was a generous size and quite nice if a bit bland, typical of a business hotel really. We had a seating area with 2 very uncomfortable chairs and a small table.
The bathroom was small but functional with a corner bath and shower over the bath. However the grout around the tub and between the floor tiles could have done with a good scrub. There also seemed to be a leak. After a bath or shower there was water on the floor no matter how careful you were and the volume of water increased over time meaning that the floor always needed towels down.
We dined at the "Erthal" restaurant one evening and it was excellent. It is not cheap but the ambience, service and food were all excellent. We had a lovely evening.
Breakfast was also excellent served in the bright and cheeful "Orangerie".
There is underground parking on site and all the staff members we met were polite, friendly and helpful.
So overall pretty good, but we were a little let down by the room.

A friend suggested that we stay in Bamberg as it is medieval town that was unscathed by the war. The town is absolutely charming. The hotel is well located and a short walk to the center of town. The room was the largest and most spacious of any hotel that I have stayed at. The service was great and the breakfast (which was included) was extensive with great quality and quantity of food. The hotel has been expanded. Get a room in the original part of the hotel as the newer rooms are not as spacious or charming as the original rooms.

This is a hotel developed from a range of impressive period hospital buildings alongside the river and within very easy walking distance of most of the historic sites of this splendid small Franconian city.

The rooms are generous in size, and very well equipped, but avoid those right next to the road as it can be noisy - especially if you like some fresh air from an open window. This is a large hotel built around two garden courtyards and we were quickly moved to a quieter room when we complained. The hotel does not have a wireless facility but there are two terminals in reception available free of charge, and phone line connectors in the rooms - for a charge..

The breakfast offering was quite splendid and the biggest choice we have ever had anywhere, although perhaps a negative for some might be the absence of on the spot cooking.

Overall this hotel is excellent with a helpful reception team, but other negatives for some might be the lack of any porterage facility to handle luggage - a big problem we noted for a touring coach which arrived during our stay, and a very limited "spa" area. This had a few useable machines, but in the relaxation area neither the jacuzzi nor the steam room were working, leaving only a rather crowded sauna to use.

The hotel also has conference facilities, but for those on holiday it is a great location for easy access to almost anything you might want to see or do in this lovely city....and Bamberg really is impressive.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the street side of the hotel

Came to bamberg as the celebration of st elizabeth came to an end of five nights of bear drinking in the streets of the old city.we adored the architecture and were so happy to go back to our own schloss when the night was over for us...wonderful place to come back to have your head on a very good pillow... Loved the breakfast and recommend it whole heartedly.
