We stayed overnight at this hotel which is perfectly situated beside the Main river and in walking distance to virtually all the major tourist sites in Wurzburg.
On arrival, we were greeted by a friendly and co-operative receptionist, who showed us to our private lock-up garage (forms part of the hotel) which we had pre-booked for a cost of 8 euros per night. As we had a small vehicle, there were no problems, however, it should be noted, if one had a large vehicle then parking would be very tight and possibly not suitable. Conversely, the hotel can arrange parking in a nearby parking station.
We requested a double room with a river view and had a lovely outlook towards Alte Mainbrucke (the old bridge) and Fortess Marienberg. The hotel itself is modern with our double room being a reasonable size, spotlessly clean, quiet and extremely comfortable (bed was excellent). The room had a flat screen TV, mini bar and the free Wi-Fi worked very well. The bathroom was compact but very adequate, with the shower pressure being terrific.
The buffet breakfast was more than adequate comprising cereals, fruit, yoghurt and various types of cheeses and cold meats.
In relation to restaurants, the receptionist was more than helpful in providing a number of options (all of which were in close walking distance). Based upon our experience, we would thoroughly recommend the restaurant called Alte Mainmuhle, which is currently ranked number 4 on TripAdvisor and located approximately 100 metres from the hotel beside the river.
Wurzburg is a lovely town to explore and Hotel Alter Kranen added to our stay with its overall quality and hospitality, value for money and location being just perfect.
