We were warmly welcomed, and despite the name, the bears are obvious but not over the top, and indeed there were no bears in our room!

We had a quiet room at the back with no view. Typical German interior - a little dated but all very spick and span and clean. No in-room coffee facilities the only complaint. Parking was fine for us, but would probably be a bit of a squeeze when busier. Only a few minutes walk to the town centre of Sinsheim with a range of restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

A good continental breakfast in the morning, and we took advantage of the Auto Technik museum package which was very good value. Much better to stay here and enjoy the small town than stay on the industrial park by the museum.

We stayed at the hotel Bär for one night as a stopover when driving between Belgium and Austria and booked a family room.

The room was on the top floor in the roof space, but was large with a double bed and a double sofa bed for the kids, but with separate duvets. There was a large bathroom, plenty of storage space for 4 people and was spotless.

Breakfast was served in the breakfast room.

The hotel is centrally situated and we found restaurants a few minutes walk away in the town centre.

The hotel was very family friendly, particularly for younger children.

We visited the Auto & Technik museum the next day and the hotel provided a card for a discount on tickets.

I spent 5 days at the hotel Baer in Sinsheim Germany. The room was clean and the breakfast substantial and with everything one would desire. The staff spoke good English, although I generally can get by regardless. The parking is not very good, but that is typical of many small hotels in German towns and villages. There is limited parking at the hotel, but one can park in a lot which is located in easy walking distance away. I would ask for a room on the back side of the hotel if possible. Mine was very quiet, but the street out front is quite busy and i could imagine a noise factor for those rooms located immediately in front.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the rear and off the front street

I am an American that works for a German company based in Sinsheim Germany. I have been to this small German town many times and I always request Hotel Bär. Pronounced like the English “Bear” and Teddy Bears are every where. I have stayed in other hotels and guest houses in the area but only when the Hotel Bär was not available. When I travel to Germany I want to stay in a real German hotel, not a creepy New York City knock-off like some of the newer hotels in the area. The building is charming and looks like it is one of the older ones in the town.
I absolutely love the owner, when you stay there you will be taken care of by her, her son or one of her personally trained staff. Everyone speaks English and is extremely helpful and courteous. There are several size rooms; some are small, but in my opinion more than adequate. I don’t go to Europe to sit in a room. But if room size is important you must only request one of the larger ones. I think the breakfast is excellent and there is a small lobby bar perfect for waiting for your ride. The front desk attendant doubles as a bar tender and in my case and German language teachers.
The location is perfect, right on the main street you can walk to the center of town in less than five minutes. Many shops, restaurants and pubs in the area. I like to stay out late and have a few beers so the Hotel Bär is perfect for walking back, no drinking and driving!
The town’s two main attractions the Auto & Technik-Museum and the Messe (convention center), both are short drives or taxi rides.
If you want a fantastic warm and friendly German experience stay at the Hotel Bär.
