“It was nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very close to the Main Railway Station and that was ok for us because we were there only for the weekend. Altstadt is 15-20 min walking.
Room was big and clean, staff's nice and polite. Ok breakfast.
It was a pleasant stay.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for two nights while on Oktoberfest Tour with Bayern Trips. Centrally located - short walk from train station and historic sites. Our room was very small only a few feet on each side of our double bed. Good breakfast. WiFi.

For the price I paid, I had expected more... It's old and not so close to the center. The bathrooms need an urgent renovation and the breakfastroom is too small for the amount of tables they have put in it. 70 € would had been ok, but 94 is too much for what they offer!!!!! Either they renew the hotel or they should lower the prices. I was very disappointed...

This hotel was located near the train station and is within walking distance to everything. The room for a single person was what it is but that's expected in Europe. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and the staff was nice and a restaurant was located in the hotel, the too.

Stayed May 2012, traveled solo

Hotel is located near central station, three minutes away on foot and five minutes from Old Rathaus. Hotel is very clean and relatively cheap. Please try negociate price in person if it is off season. Hotel employees are not very friendly.

Room Tip: Ask front desk to get quiet room. Room facing main street might be noisy.

The staff was wonderfully friendly and helpful. It is likely that the hotel has seen better days, an little updating and cleaning would make this hotel a great place to stay in Bamberg. On-site parking was a benefit.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

Like most hotels in Europe, the room was small. However, the twin beds were separate allowing for more privacy. The rooms were outdated and could use a facelift.

The reception was welcoming and the staff friendly. Laundry facilities are located in the cellar in housekeeping. Hotel charged us 5 euros at check out. They did not disclose the fee in advance.

Just a short walk from the train station and alstadt - old town. The room was quiet in the evening. The complimentary breakfast buffet was excellent. Vast array of meat, cheese, cold cereals, bread, yogurt, fruit and vegetables. Eggs and sausage too.

Hotel had a lift to the third floor and on-site restaurant which looked inviting but we did not try.
