Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice rooms, French doors, power shower, good breakfast, and friendly staff. However, be aware there is NO aircon in any rooms and no body lotion or conditioner. Also ask for extra pillows if you need more than a small one.

Our room was excellent and the location was very convenient to Old Town Bamberg. The staff was very helpful. It was great to have such well located and secure parking. Built along the river, the Residenzeschloss has very nice places to have some of Bamberg's famous beer and a couple of dining locations serving delicious Bavarian foods. The breakfast "spread" was fantastic. Easy walk to center of Old Town. Hotel parking saved us a bunch! The grounds were very well groomed.

Very nice hotel, converted from a hospital. Quiet location, our room overlooked the river. Spacious rooms, good restaurant and very friendly and helpful staff. Underground secure parking and a short walk into the town. No air conditioning in our room, but a fan was provided ( no A/C seems to be the norm for German hotels) . The breakfast buffet was particularly impressive.

Beautiful outside. Not good for value overall.

The service is poor. Staff can’t figure out what went wrong with my reservation and took 30 mins to find it eventually. Also they are not very helpful when explaining the amenities. I had to ask twice how to open the gym door from the reception staff to get clear instructions regarding how I can get who to open the door. Breakfast selection is mediocre and very hectic.

The room looks dated. No AC. Also beds are very short. I don’t know how an average German guy can sleep well on it as it is short even for me (5’10).

But the location is great and it is a beautiful building.

The hotel has a very good location.
close to the old town. A nice walk takes one to the city center.
The building is very beautiful. The reception area and common spaces are very nice as well.
The breakfast is good. The service is excellent I would say. Everyone was kind and helpful.
Our room was nice but quite small.
Unfortunately two things were missing: a minibar and air conditioning which for me is very important.
A pity!
Everything together we enjoyed our stay.

Lieber Gast, herzlichen Dank für die gute Bewertung und Ihre lobenden Worte. Das freut uns sehr. Schade, dass Ihr Aufenthalt durch die fehlende Minibar und der Klimaanlage etwas getrübt wurde. Ihren Wunsch nach einer Klimaanlage können wir gut verstehen. Leider hindern uns hier bauliche Kriterien. Wir wünschen Ihnen alles Gute und hoffen, Sie bald wieder bei uns begrüßen zu dürfen.

It's a lovely old building and it's very convenient for exploring the beautiful city of Bamberg. Our room was large and had all the usual amenities. Service in the bar was excellent and in the restaurant friendly, but there was no-one to help with bags and a general lack of attentiveness throughout. As I say ok, but could be so much better

Visited Bamberg for the Christmas Market - hotel is close, but not in the city center. Short walk to town and the parking was easy as they have a dedicated parking garage. Extensive breakfast. Beds were comfy. Electric coffee maker in the room. Very good WiFi. Too cold to sit outside, but the hotel did have nice outdoor seating.

In an old expansive palais a wonderful grand hotel close to the center. The rooms are lovely and luxurious and the restaurant was cozy and delicious. A great place to spend a weekend or more to see the area. Parking is onsite and breakfast can be served in your room, which I love.

When first saw this hotel I realised that it was very large, it used to be a hospital and so the hallways are nearly endless.
Very nice , large room with good beds and bathroom. Nice to sit outside on the large terrace.
Breakfast was fantastic, everything you would need and much more.
Good undergroundgarage for my motorbike.

I liked Bamberg very much and I hope to visit here again and will surely stay at this hotel.
