Hotel Plaza
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Forchheim
Reviewed November 29, 2011

Naming your hotel "the plaza" means high expectations and for a small provincial town, this hotel was not so bad.
Room was nice, large with good size bathroom and shower. Service was good although you can forget anything after 20.30 when bar, restaurant etc all close. Breakfast was fine and check out etc were smooth.
Downside, I felt I was the only one in the hotel and at 95 euro, maybe a touch pricey! Would stay again but might negotiate next time!

The main hotel seemed nice, and had a few parking spaces. I actually stayed at their guest house Kleines Garni Hotel. It was about a 5 minute walk away. There are 3 parking spaces and its right off the main street to the old town. The outside of the hotel seemed nice. The room was very clean and had a comfortable bed, TV, WiFi (free), desk, chair and A/C. Bath room was small but nice. This part of the hotel also had a guest living room/kitchen when you walked in (not in the room, but where a lobby would be).
There is no at the hotel, so I was buzzed in where my key was waiting for me.

The walk to Annafest is about 15 minutes, although, I took a cab from down the street for 6 EUR.

I did not have breakfast, as it was in the other building down the street and wanted to sleep in. I was not charged for breakfast.

I would stay again and recommend it.

While there, do visit the old town as it is rather pretty.

Room Tip: Stay in the guest house if you are coming in a group. You'll have a living room and kitchen to s...

Hotel booked through work so not a personal choice.

Generally a nice place to stay. Easy walking distance of town and shops. Room was lovely. Very clean and comfortable.

Staff were very amiable and extremely helpful especially as I arrived after the reception was closed. Check in all sorted with a quick phone call. They also helped with the retrieval of my luggage which hadn't been transferred for my connecting flight. Friendly and approachable and always ensuring that i had everything i needed. They even ordered a take away for me.

Another nice touch was the free high speed wi-fi throughout the hotel. The connection was better than most paid wi-fi i've used; no drop outs, no need to recogfigure internet settings and very very fast download and surfing speed.

Couple of negatives though......

The hotel doesn't have a restaurant so you have to either go out or get the aforementioned take away. Also the bar closes at 8pm so if you want a drink after that you have to utilise the mini-bar (expensive!). tea or coffee making facilities in the room would be nice as well.

Air con would be a good idea too; there is a cool air fan but after a while it doesn't make much difference.

Breakfast was fine but nothing to shout about; having ther option of toast would be good.

Final moan.....no English TV channels; not a massive problem but I was proimised that this would be available. Alas not.

Would i stay there again?...........Probably.

Room Tip: Try for a room at the back of the hotel. Traffic gets a bit busy from about 5am!

Very nice rooms, hotel is located close to downtown. There are numerous restaurants within a couple blocks walk. The breakfast is very good with a decent variety.. This a newer hotel, so the rooms are a bit larger than many of the hotels in the area. Look forward to staying here again.

We arrived in Forchheim on a saturday night and headed to our preaviously book guesthouse in west-Forchheim.

We did spend a night at that guesthous....but -boy-oh-boy- would I have wished we had stumbled on the "Plaza" as soon as we arrived there.

We checked out of our guesthouse as soon as we had, had a look at the plaza and got a room there.

This is a very appealing and quiet little hotel within walkin distance from the "main shopping street".

Forchheim is off course a very small town.
But it is wonderful!

Lots of cute little shops and icecream-bars (along with regular bars:) that are along the beautiful cubblestone streets.

If you ever plan on taking a trip to this part of Germany...please visit Forchheim. It is so nice!
Just be aware that almost EVERYTHING is closed on sundays (exept 1 or 2 bars on the main street).

We paid aprox. 98 euros for a double room with a lovely breakfast and the room was very clean and modern.

Stayed at the Ringhotel Plaza Forchheim from January 29, 2007 till February 2, 2007 for business ( I write this review during my stay here in the hotel).

This hotel is a wunderful place. Very nice rooms (see pictures), free internet (LAN and WLAN), clean bathroom and bedroom.

The only thing what could be better is a bigger closet! But the rest is quite wunderful!
