Barock Hotel am Dom
Ranked #10 of 40 Hotels in Bamberg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 19, 2012

This is a lovely hotel situated in old Bamberg, an easy walk to everything. We had a spotlessly clean room in a quiet location of the hotel. We were able to park overnight right in front of the hotel. The breakfast room is a charming room with vaulted ceilings. There was an excellent selection of breakfast food. We have been in Bamberg twice before at another hotel. This hotel is much more reasonable and has a better location for seeing the old town, therefore, we would stay again. The staff were helpful and friendly.
Ask the hotel for driving directions, as Bamberg has many pedestrian areas, be patient, you will get there.
Try to book your room here early, there are not many, and it is very reasonable.

Room Tip: Book early!

This hotel is located in the center of the historical, medieval old town of Bamberg, just a few minutes walk from the cathedral and pubs serving the famous smoked beer. The owners are very nice and very helpful with information concerning the best places to enjoys the various grades of smoked beer. All the old town sites, shopping and restaurants are close at hand. The hotel is housed in an building that has all the modern facilities, but does not lack charm. Other reviews claim difficulty finding the hotel. We Google satellite mapped the old town area and followed landmarks and street name right to the hotel. This visual aid was very helpful. Parking is limited in front of the hotel, but the owner will provide parking (7 Euros) in a small courtyard to the side of the hotel.

A nice comfortable hotel which is run very efficiently. It is a bit hard to find when you are driving up to it...keep your eyes peeled for the blue signs and you do have to drive through what looks like a pedestrian area to get there. The outside of the hotel is charming and it is run by a very efficient woman. There is some limited parking outside. Our room was on the third floor. Beds were comfortable and the room was large but in need of some updating and modernizing as it all looks several decades old without any charm. The hotel setting is nice and quiet and it is a great place to get your washing done overnight. Breakfasts were good although no cappuccino was on offer.

The hotel is located within the old town, very close to the Bamberg Dom. Everything was a quick walk and easy to find. The owners were so friendly and gave us multiple suggestions for things to do and places to go. They certainly made our stay a very comfortable, pleasant stay. Hotel is so centrally located to all restaurants and beer gardens we walked so much but were able to see many things. We were interested in seeing Altenburg Castle but were concerned that we would not be able to find it, the owner gave us such great directions that our walk to Altenburg became one of our best experiences in Bamberg. Breakfast was wonderful, the room was quaint and the staff was very helpful

This is a lovely hotel in an historic building. The owners speak English and were friendly and helpful. They lent us a guidebook for the city and also provided a city map. We stayed in a room on the first floor, neat the front door and were concerned that it might be noisy, but that was not the case. Breakfast in a vaulted room was more than adequate.

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed the barockhotel very much. The rom itself wasn't typically baroque (luckily) - more like 1980-styled. Spotless, neat and with a nice bathroom. The breakfast was ok.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Barock Hotel am Dom. Our hotel room was very large, even by American standards, extremely clean and the bathroom very modern. Our room overlooked the Cathedral, which was beautiful, but as a few other reviewers posted, don't expect to sleep late on a Sunday. There are a few parking spots outside, but they were very small, even for our European car. The staff was very friendly, spoke excellent English and were very accommodating. The breakfast was standard German fare, except for the croissants which were quite excellent.

My tips:
The hotel is located on a back alley road, so be prepared to feel like you are driving in a no car zone when arriving.
Make sure you ask for the wi-fi password when you check in. We forgot to do so and by the time we came back to the hotel that night (around 10pm), the staff had gone home for the evening.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the cathedral!
