“Very comfortable stay in Bamberg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

I attended a conference at the university and stayed at the Brudermuehle, right on the river in the centre of Bamberg. It's a perfect location, 5 minutes from everything in Bamberg (which is a lovely city). I took a taxi from the rail station -- it's walkable, but it was raining and it's just far enough away to be awkward with luggage. I had a room looking out over the nearby square. The room was quite a good size, comfortable, with two twin beds, a good-sized writing desk, and a large bathroom with tub and shower. It was quiet and comfortable - I wasn't disturbed by street or river noise. I slept really well both nights I was there.

Breakfast in the morning was very good - excellent breads, good cheese and jams, cereals, juice and fruit, eggs. I didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening.

I'd definitely stay again - the staff were charming and helpful, the rooms extremely comfortable, and I felt right at home. Plus, they gave me a wrapped apple to take when I departed!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper you may want to ask for a room away from the river.

This is a great little hotel in the heart of the old town in Bamberg. It is between the old city hall built in the center of the river, and the local police station which used to be Levi Strauss' house. The river side rooms have a nice view of same. You could not find a room closer to the town center.

The rooms themselves are small but well appointed, clean and inviting for a "gasthaus", and the restaurant is truely great, but that is reviewed under restaurants. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms utilitarian but spotless.

The staff is limited in English ability, but they are very friendly and accomodating and try their best. As mentioned in other reviews there is no elevator, nor parking, BUT there is curb space in front for offloading baggage and the public parking garage is less than a block away. It is on a quiet side street so it is very quiet at night. I enjoyed my stay and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Simple German language skills will help, but I rate this hotel very tourist friendly.

Room Tip: Try to get the corner room overlooking the river in the main building.

When we were searching for a hotel in the heart of the old town we came across this gem. Don't be fooled by the brochure or website pictures of the from of this hotel. They need to change that. We booked this online and to our amazement when we were shown to our room the view was unforgettable and l felt l had gone back in time 1,000 years. l loved this town and the view of the town hall from my room. The breakfast was extensive and the character of this place won me. l will return.

Room Tip: Ask for room number 1.

Being shown to our room to find we were right on the river looking on to the main tourist attraction was amazing. The water rushing passed as it has for centuries. We just sat with all the windows opened and enjoyed the view. The room was large and colorful. The bathroom had towel warmers so we could do a little washing. Breakfast was extensive and fresh. Meats, cheeses, cereals, eggs and pastries. It was a little expensive for our budget but of all our month long travels it was my most memorable stay.

We stayed in one of the apartments on the bridge, a location that could not be beat. We had to walk over to the main hotel for breakfast but since the meant a stroll through the Rathaus, we were happy to do that. Breakfast was very nice, eggs cooked to order, cheeses, meats, fruits, breads, it was all there. The apartment was comfortable and the staff wonderful. We will definitely stay at the Brudermuehle on a return trip to Bamberg.

I would stay here again. Our room was nice, but we were very confused on our arrival. There is a separate part of the hotel, in another rather non-descript building across a small courtyard, and this is where we were initially taken. This building had none of the charm of the main hotel, and seemed deserted. When I asked if anyone else was staying there, I was told no. After we were shown to our room, we decided we were not pleased, so I went back over to reception and told the attendant we were unhappy with our room, and that we wanted to stay in the main hotel, if possible. He showed me two different rooms, and we took one of them. I have no idea why we were stuck in that other building at first, because the main hotel seemed to be almost totally unoccupied. Things worked out OK, but it was a very strange and rather disconcerting beginning.

The restaurant was a very lively place, the food was good, but the service was lacking. The breakfast buffet was very nice.

The staff was very friendly, and at checkout gave us a "goody bag", with several nice things in it. There is no elevator, but the young man at the desk carried our luggage up the steps for us, even going back and retrieving them from the first room.

Bamberg downtown is pretty quiet at night, so you will get a good night's sleep here. The rate was absurdly high. Forget it! Plus there is no lift to the second floor, so you have to tote your bags yourself. A steep climb in a narrow staircase. The restaurant staff and the hotel staff are the same, so if the restaurant is busy, be prepared to wait 15 minutes (I did), as the diners have top priority. Actually, there isn't enough wait staff either, so be prepared to wait while dining as well. Internet connection is extra. Parking is at the city underground lot at 12 euro/24 hours (your time resets each time you leave. Look elsewhere.
