We booked a New Year's Eve package for two, including the New Year dinner in the nearby Haus Heuport, breakfast and a guided Regensburg tour. The hotel is a modern building in the center of an otherwise old (but superbly preserved) medieval city, literally two minutes away from the Cathedral or the old Stone Bridge.
If arriving by car, you have to park the car in front of the hotel (in a pedestrian zone...) to unload and then quickly "vanish". Parking in the nearby and partner hotel Bischofshof is not more expensive than public parking (12 EUR/day), big SUV drivers might need a very steady hand to manage the narrow entry in the parking courtyard.
The room was expecting us, with a bottle of sparkling wine bathing in a full ice cooler, the tickets for the New Year dinner and Regensburg tour already waiting for us. This is also descriptive for the whole experience: the staff shining through their absence, or, better said, staying in the background, unintrusive, but there when you needed them.
The rooms are spacious, a mixture of classy and very modern. The only let down was the purported "view over the old city": due to the local architecture, you only can see the opposite building and, if leaning on the window, the street.
Breakfast was OK, not the most varied, but definitely nice presented in silverware. Take time to consult the tea "menu", instead of ordering your usual Earl Grey or cappuccino: you'll find several interesting combinations from the Eilles company (if you enjoyed them, there's a shop in Neupfarrplatz). You can also have a tea in the inviting lobby, enjoy it from fine Rosenthal porcelain cups while looking at people passing by in this fine shopping district or browsing through the many arts and architecture albums.
All in all, we definitely had a smooth transition in the new year and an enjoyable experience and can only recommend a stay.
