“Good Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2012 via mobile

Stayed at this hotel for 12 days.Had a pick up and drop off service provided which was great because if you own your own vehicle parking could become a problem as the streets were always crowded and there was no parking close to hotel. Saw a tourist complain about having to carry his luggage in from quite a ways away. He wanted some help and there is no valet service. I would have offered him a hand but he was not a very likeable person.Can become noisy if room on street side but everthing shuts down around midnight. Location is as good as it gets,close to bars,restaurant,breweries and tourist attractions.Wvould stay again if price was right.

Stayed May 2012, travelled on business

I'm not going to waste your time or mine. There a a lot of other better hotels than this: go there if you're scraping the barrel.

There's an old and new part of this hotel. Their accountants have clearly had a bad night and realised that next morning that the refurb cost way more than they anticipated. So, expect minimal service and high prices, plus a breakfast which I would associate with Fawlty Towers after John Cleese had knobbled the chef and headbutted the rest of the staff......

Er....Sorry for all those non Python or John Cleese Fans.....The breakfast, in simple terms, was as appetising as a poke-in-the-eye with a pointy stick.....The staff were manfully and woman-fully coping with it rather well...but behind the eyes you could tell that they were saying "Yeh, it's a bit crap isn't it.....how can I improve your day...other than transfering you to the Goldenes Creuz across the platz or...indeed....any other hotel in Regensburg ?".


I guess you've got my gist. Avoid unless you've no other choice to spend your hard-earnt cash....

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.
