Hotel Domhof
Ranked #3 of 15 Hotels in Speyer
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 29, 2006

The Domhof is the sort of hotel that Germany does very well – always efficient, calm, pleasantly staid. Its location is lovely – around a leafy courtyard with Speyer’s vast cathedral peering in. The rooms are very comfortable, the breakfast is really excellent, service is good. There’s a free internet computer in the lobby.

Its triumph, however, is the superb Hausbrauerei a few yards away. We stayed in October, and so the beer garden wasn’t open, but this was no hardship – the inside was festooned with autumnal and harvest decorations, and the atmosphere terrific. Really good service, top-notch beer, good solid food, and a sense that you could sit there all day and night.

Speyer is a friendly, quiet and very pleasant town, dominated by the immense Dom (200 yards from the hotel – and yes, you can hear the bells, but they’re lovely, and you get used to them). There are plenty of good restaurants, and drinking options too (though none as wonderful as the Domhof itself). I recommend the Jewish Baths – built by the cathedral’s own builders and a fascinating delve into medieval history, with a lovely little orchard. There’s a fine technical museum complete with 747 and Antonov, and another good option is the Sealife museum down by the Rhine, which is a short walk through the cathedral’s park. Speyer is also well situated for wine-buffs, being only about 20 miles from the wine-route ; we visited Maikammer, and recommend it.

The Domhof is a picturesque hotel in a central location, with parking. It is within walking distance of Speyer's historic centre and five minutes' drive from the excellent Museum of Transport. It has a separate Hausbrauerei or beer garden and restaurant, but this was fully booked on the Saturday night we stayed there. However, there are plenty of other restaurants within easy walking distance.

Our room was clean, modern and comfortable and the breakfast buffet was excellent and served by friendly and helpful staff.

However, on the minus side, there was no soap provided in the bathroom and the evening receptionist was not particularly friendly or helpful. She spoke no English. The biggest problem, however, was that there was a wedding reception taking place in the hotel and they held an extremely noisy disco which kept me awake until after 3 a.m. I guess this could be a regular occurrence as there was a pre-prepared card in the room apologising and saying we might experience a little extra noise.

If you stayed in this hotel on a quiet evening, I'm sure you would love it. However, if there's an event on, take earplugs.

The Domhof Hotel in Speyer is definetly worth a visit. If you ever come through this lovely town in Germany (not far from Heidelberg, but very charming and not overcrowed), stay in this hotel. It is 3 min to the main shopping street and 30seconds away from the best beergarden in 50km radius.
The rooms are a bit old fashioned and do NOT have air-con, but are clean and reasonable priced. If you are there in summer do not miss the breakfast in the courtyard. Excellent. As the cathedral is also only a stonethrow away, you will hear the bells in your room, but never mind, this is what a gret cathedral is about.
Allways ask for a room towards the courtyard to avoid unnessesary noise.
