Reviewed 21 April 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights on the Valentine´s day weekend. Honestly, not my best choice of a hotel so far. Location was not so great, a bit hidden from city centre. Service was exasperating, they called us twice at 9.30 to go to breakfast, after having made us book it, just in case, so as to have the option. They also called us at 11.00 sharp in order to remind us to check-out. Unbelievable. Cleanliness superficial, rooms ok but not great, furniture a bit old, could do with a renovation. Breakfast on the other hand good. And they did keep the flowers i had forgotten, so I could collect them afterwards. That was ok.
Paid 75 euros pro night without breakfast, wouldn t do it again, would choose a more central hotel, hopefully with better service.

I spent a night in a weekend in February in this family hotel.
The personnel is very friendly and the receptionist - probably also owner - was willing to help with further information about the city.
She also speaks quite good Italian and she's happy when she has Italian guests she can pratice the language with (I wanted to speak German because I live in Germany, but when she saw I come from Italy....)
The single room was a normal size and clean. The bathroom was really small, but it's a feature of many hotels.
Breakfast is good and eggs are served at the table according to your taste (scrambled, a la coque).
The hotel is in the Altstsdt and so the cathedral and other churches, the Residenz, the Mainfranken Theater (very good) are reachable in a couple of minutes by foot.
The train main station is only four tram stops away, but it is worth to go from the station to the hotel by foot: you'll only need 15-20 minutes during which you'll admire shop-windows and the city architecture.
To summarize, there's a good price/quality relation.

The hotel is located near the Dom, which is a good and central location. Parking could be a problem as you have to park on the streets. My room (a doubleroom) was on the 3rd floor and was of normal size, with a balcony. The bathroom was really small (could be a problem to get around in there for some guests). The room was clean, though the furniture and style looked dated. I loved the bed, it was really comfortable.
They have a wide selection of food for breakfast and the staff there was really friendly. The receptionists were also nice and it was no problem to get seperate bills for the two nights I have stayed there.

Room Tip: Some rooms in the 3rd floor have balconies: 107, 207 and 307 are located near the staricase and the...

Central location (5 minutes to the Residence, 10 minutes to the centre), you should expect some troubles with parkiing. Friendly staff, great breakfast. Room 204 was simple, but nice. I think rooms 107 and 207 can be a terrible choice because they are located near stairs.

We stayed at this hotel last night for our 2 day excursion in Wurzburg and this was by far our worst hotel experience in Germany (we've lived here for 3 years). The receptionist spoke English, but was very rude and unwilling to accept the fact that her hotel had messed up the booking. Also, they are behind in technology and had me fill out Bayern guest registration forms for each guest (a 15 minute process when dealing with this person) rather than just photocopying our passports like every other hotel in Europe. Additionally, the beds were ridiculously uncomfortable and the sheets and pillows looked and felt like they came from the Ikea 10 Euro bin. The street noise was almost unbearable. Overall a terrible experience. I would never recommend this hotel to a friend.

We stayed here last night (3 people in 2 rooms). Upon check-out, the hotel refused to use the VAT form stating it was "too complicated" and told us to figure it out at the airport! Ummm, we live in Germany. Ugh! So frustrating! The rooms were "okay", but the bathroom was incredibly small. Thankfully we stayed in the winter and didn't have to open the window because the street actually got quite loud between midnight and 4 am (I got hot and cracked the window...maybe a few bars were close??). Regardless, we would never stay here again nor recommend it.

Basic but good; nice room, nice bathroom, friendly service (especially the nice lady at breakfast), breakfast good & German (love the blood pudding!), close to the city center. Th eonly con: the hotel's Internet: soooo slow!
