This is totally different as most of the hotels that I have been to. This seems like a very old mansion, that has been transformed into a hotel. The rooms are very high, and old-fashioned. It also has a piano on the first floor, so if you want to sing... A very nice feature of this place is also that...

I spent a long weekend at the Hotel Goldener Anker this month. The location couldn't be better: a few doors from the Markgrafliches Opera House and the tourist information center, and a short walk to either the Richard Wagner Museum or the center of town. The hotel is steeped in hundreds of years of history. There was a card on...

This is my favorite hotel in Bayreuth! A traditional and stylish place. No rooms are like, most are really large. In my room the parquet floor (herringbone pattern) creaked a bit, which to me just added to the charm. Lots of draperies, soft cushions etc. Fruit platter in the room on arrival. Excellent breakfast! You either go Continental, or order...

I stayed here for one week during the Wagner festival 2016. The single room I had was small but quite adequate, and with a very nice design. Very comfortable wardrobe and bathroom, and quietly located towards courtyard. The breakfast is included and delighful. Such a pleasure to be served breakfast at the table from a menu, and by the extremely...

Over priced and not nearly as good as alternatives in Bayreauth. Try the Dotzer nearby for really good food at half the price. Dessert of a bit of ice cream and half a plum was not my idea of a good chef's menu.

There is no better hotel in Bayreuth to enjoy the Wagner Festival! Located centrally, yet only 20 minute walk to the festival grounds, Goldener Anker offers its guests old school luxury, rococo interiors, attentive service, excellent food (I love the breakfast!), with the attentive hands-on personal touch of the owner. While the hotel may have a complicated past, there is...

Ancient family-run establishment, with a perfect location in central Bayreuth. Competent restaurant serving well-cooked regional specialities, beautiful rooms in romantic style, personalized service. Parking spaces in the rear.

Friendly and very helpful reception staff. Walking distance to railway. Hotel confortable but bathroom and shower very small. No coffee/tea facilities or fridge. Air conditioning was not so good but we had a fan. Lucky, it was not mid summer! No lifts but staff helpful. We were offered tea/coffee and snack for our early departure. Bed very comfortable.

Friendly people, clean rooms, efficient service, excellent breakfast. Makes perfect match to the Bayreuth festival. Certainly would go again. Nice rooms, central location, walking distance to everything worth seeing in Bayreuth. Thumbs up!

Beautiful hotel with such a lovely atmosphere. Not your usual sterile business location. Unique large rooms with nice touches. WIFI was limited in the rooms but the hallways are a pleasure to stay with comfy chairs and sofas and beautiful decoration. Breakfast was lovely although not for those that want a buffet. Elegance is the word to define the place...
