A serious walk from the railway station, so we suggest you take a taxi or spend an hour getting lost down the back streets of this beautiful city. Like we did... It was hardly a chore though as we gasped at the sights of Bamberg for the first time, but if you’re carrying luggage, a cab is your best bet.

NOTE: The Reception is not manned full time and they are only around in the morning and afternoon until 18:00, plus they have a two hour lunch break. Make sure you contact them with your arrival time to arrange getting a key. After hours the key lets you into the side entrance and directly to your room.

You couldn’t ask for more from a location and the Sandstern Hotel (meaning sand star) is bang in the centre of things in the Old Town among cobbled-stoned streets, medieval churches (you’ll love the bells chiming I’m sure but the effective double glazing ensures it’s not too intrusive) and such a picturesque backdrop you’d think you were on a Hollywood set.

The room (#16) was small but nicely laid out with heavy wooden furniture, small (14”) TV showing local channels and a writing desk. The double bed was firm and comfortable, the linen excellent and it was very clean.

The bathroom was even smaller but everything worked with plenty of hot water for both the shower (very good) and sink. They even supply liquid soap for both and a handy power point for shaver/toothbrush.

More than adequate lighting, including bed side lamps, a wardrobe and central heating finish off the items present and overall we had a very pleasant stay, especially as we had arrived for the annual beer festival.

Bamberg has over 70 individual breweries- who needs the expensive Oktober Fest in nearby Munich anyway?

Breakfast is available as an optional extra but we didn't try it but the free wi-fi was faultless and we had access in the room.

See our Blog for more details (address in our profile) or contact us directly.

I stayed here with my wife for 3 nights, the hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the centre of the town, its placed in a nice cobblestone street a midst cafes and bars and my own room which was on the top floor had a great view of the cathedral, especially at night! The hotel is not luxury but i thoroughly enjoyed it, had a cosy homely feel within the rooms if not a little dated. I havent a complaint, the staff and breakfast are also worth a mention, they where spot on. :)
