Altstadthotel Arch
Ranked #23 of 48 Hotels in Regensburg
Reviewed 28 July 2012

We had high hopes of this hotel as it sounded just what we wanted. It IS in a good location in the city centre, but that is all that is good about it. A venerable hotel that has seen better times. We arrived with lots of luggage and were greeted with an off-hand reception and no offer of help with our cases. We had booked a double room (luckily for only one night) and it was a single room with a pull-out child size bed along side, with no bedside table or light. We were told that was what we had booked, and it was in fact a double! The buffet breakfast was very poor and we were very pleased to check out. We did say we would not be returning!

We would not go there again, staff at reception was very unfriendly and rude, room was extremly noisy, room change with an exaggerated uppricing was offered after lengthy discussions. Food was average, city centre location in beautiful regensburg is nice, though.

Wonderful location right in the heart of the city, just a short stroll away from the Danube river. All amenities nearby, bars, restaurants etc. Beautifully kept hotel with well maintained rooms, a bit small in size but still adequate. Ideal for couples or solo travellers.

Room Tip: Aim for the high floors. Nice, exposed beams will add a rustic flavor to your stay.

Ive stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions over the past five years and have always found the location very convenient. The refurbished part of the hotel is very pleasant although the original part of the hotel desperately needs updating. Anyone wanting to stay here should request one of the newer rooms!

Breakfast is nice and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Recently updated, the Arch is right on Haidplatz square in the middle of the old town (Altstadt). views overlooking the square and wide selection of restaurants right outside the door.

Nice and clean hotel in the center of the Old Town of Regensburg. Fair price for the location.
The rooms are small and watch out for your head if you are tall. A lot of low structural beams in the rooms. wi-fi internet of poor quality. Good breakfast but not extraordinary.
The location can not be better....

We have visited Regensburg before but chose this hotel this time as it was very central in the middle of the Old Town. The hotel and rooms were very clean and well maintained though we were in the newer section of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was okay but they were not fast on replenishing food if at all. One morning there was no bread and no more appeared the whole time we had breakfast. It was Christmas Market time, a very busy time in Regensburg and most hotels were full but the room was quite expensive for what it was - even though it was very clean and fitted out well.
