We had room 5 on the first floor this time. The room was nice, decent sized, very clean, with a small but very clean bathroom. We had three windows, a large schrank, along with a couch and table/chairs. We had a few small issues that weren't worth reporting: the soap dispenser at the sink was empty (the same dispenser in the shower was full so no big deal), the shower appeared to, at one time, have had doors but now had a curtain. I hate shower curtains but it was clean. Lastly, and this isn't the hotel's fault, we were there in late November so of course it was cold outside. The bar/restaurant downstairs was packed Saturday night with apparently lots and lots of smokers. Some of that smoke found its way into the lobby and our room; not horribly strong, but we could smell cigarette smoke. The following morning the smell was gone and did not return Sunday night.
The location of the hotel is great; about two blocks from Bamberg's beautiful rathaus. Our corner room was away from the main road so we heard no road noise whatsoever (of course our windows were closed). Restaurants and shops are literally below and next door and the famous Dom is about 200-300 meters walk away. Parking on the street is quite difficult but we did manage to snag a couple spaces while there and only once had to feed the parkschein automat!
Breakfast was pretty good with the standard German fare. The bread selection was not stellar but adequate. Boiled eggs were the only warm/hot food but that is not a complaint. Coffee was plentiful.
This was our second stay at Hotel Weierich. When we return (probably next year) we'll no doubt stay here again. And lucky for us Americans, they accept VAT forms so we all avoid paying the German VAT for the hotel.
