My review is based in staying in many hotels throughout Germany for around 100 euros per night:
The Goldener Anker in Coburg was the worst hotel we stayed at in Germany. However it does have some redeeming qualities to note. Keeping in mind the rating is based on comparison of price point...
In the centre of the city so it was very convenient. We were there on Wednesday night and Thursday morning. There was a great market Thursday morning where we got fresh produce and the famous coburgers.
There was free parking but only two spaces in the garage so we had to pull our car in front of others. This meant we were awakened very early Thursday morning with a request to move our car so other guests could get out. However after we checked out the lovely hotel personnel let us leave our car while we explored the city.
The room itself was not up to standard for the price being charged. We had called and booked in advance asking for a bathtub for our baby. We were told the room would have a bathtub. However on arrival and check-in there was no bathtub. Also the cupboards were quite fragile, the pillows were horrible (unless you like them so soft they are nearly flat) and there was mold in the very tiny shower. However the bed was pretty comfortable and the tv had tons of channels to watch. The sitting area was nice and the room was huge.
The breakfast was included and was very good. Great yogurts and fresh fruit. Great meat and cheeses and you could fry up your own eggs.
They Had free wi-fi we were never able to connect to from our second floor room so again not worth the money we paid. We had booked two days but we left after one.
There was a great tapas restaurant close by called Bar Celona. Lovely owner and great happy hour tapas prices. They fit us in with our pram and took excellent care of us. This place is hopping so you might need to book in advance.
Also if you're not sure about stopping in Coburg give it a chance. The park, palace and fortress as well as the lovely people were worth a stop and a leisurely day.
