The Altenburgblick hotel doesn’t integrate with its surroundings very well. The building is rather ugly but really I shouldn't let the building's exterior stop you from staying her. It is a nice hotel (run by a family) and it’s not too far to the old centre of the historical town of Bamberg. It is in walking distance to the world heritage site “Altstadt”.
We stayed in a double room with a balcony and we had a nice view of the old castle of Bamberg (Altenburg). On a side note it is worth visiting the castle. My first impressions were “am I in the world of Harry Potter?”
Our room was standard but spacious, clean and comfortable and nicely furnished. The only annoying things were the squeaky and uncomfortable bed and the lack of coffee/ tea making facilities.
The bathroom was without basic amenities such as the standard shampoo and conditioner. There was only a liquid soap (three-in-one type) available which was not so great to wash your hair with. Ladies bring your own Shampoo.
The great thing is there is free parking and internet.
Breakfast was truly good. The food was fresh and plentiful and served in a nice room.
Not far away from the hotel is very nice restaurant, Greifenklau, which serves a Franconian kitchen speciality. We went there for dinner.
I recommend this hotel. It is good value for money. If we decide to visit Bamberg again we will choose to stay in this hotel again. On a side note: make sure you do some research before you arrive to Bamberg as all the tourist information in this hotel is in German. We found this (and the lack of coffee/ tea making facilities) to be the case with most German hotels.
