“Old World Charm”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 via mobile

After spending a week in Germany this was by far our favorite place to stay. The rooms were clean, beautifully appointed, great linens, and service was excellent compared to other similarly rated hotels we stayed in that week. We dined both nights at the hotel and the kitchen was first rate. We will be back!

Stayed July 2013, travelled as a couple

The second time here at our absolute favorite hotel in the world, Goldener Karpfen in Fulda. Everyting here is just perfect. From the warm reception from the owner family and staff to large luxurious rooms perfectly cleaned. Classic turn of the century decoration in restaurant and halls with lots of historic paintings to look at. Spotless, clean, modern rooms with nice bathrooms and jacuzzi if you chose a larger room. Very fast internet and no problems connecting as is usually the case at hotels. Best breakfast I have had at a hotell (and I´ve had more than 50 hotel nights over the last two years). Don´t think we have ever felt more welcome than here. The first visit was in 2010 and the last was july 2013. It´s nice to se that it´s still as good as it was then. Warmly recommended!

I have stayed in this marvellous hotel several times, and whenever I return, it is almost like coming home!! The warm welcome from the Staff, the amazing pictures,the extraordinary collection of colorful items in the Lobby,comfortable rooms with every detail considered,excellent food and service, and of course the two charming Lady owners who preside over the Hotel,greeting customers as if they are old friends..and of course, many are. It is in a terrific location in the centre of Fulda,which is a great place to wander around,and in the summer there are many outdoor cafes and restaurants where you can sit and watch the world go by. A great place to relax!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the quiet side, away from the street..

We stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting friends in the area. It felt as if we were staying in a large country house with friendly hosts, rather than in a hotel. Rooms and bathrooms are of a very good size, very comfortable and well appointed - loved the breakfasts - continental with a huge selection of hams, cheeses, pates, jams etc as well as a massive selection of breads and cakes. Probably the best continental selection we have come across in any European hotel. Didn't have dinner in the hotel but plan to return so that we can. Nicely situated on a cobbled street with outside seating area and fountain for sunny drinks. Also has sizeable private parking behing the hotel. Would thoroughly recommend.

This hotel is old, gorgeous and completely updated. The food- breakfast and dinner- were fabulous, the chef is top notch. Wireless internet strong and the whole place is quaint and clean. Really a 4 star hotel in the old section of town. We ate outside twice in the small courtyard. Their English is good and the 2 sisters who own the place go out of their way to make this hotel up to date but still retaining the old world charm.

Well kept hotel (Goethe stay there in the 1700's) in Fulda just an hour north of Frankfurt. Hotel has been in the family since 1904 and that's lucky for us because today the owners Renatta and Maria are there to insure that you will simply have the most delightful time in Fulda and environs. The food in their hotel restaurant is very German traditional and delicious; the service in their restaurant was superb and friendly. Come for the lodging and the food, but don't miss the opportunity to engage with the owners. If you are so lucky as to be able to sit down with them for drinks after dinner they will regale you with their worldly stories. Be so clumsy as to mention that you have stayed at The Oriental? Renatta always eats with Kurt Wachweitel, the former GM. Mention Wagner's Ring and Maria will tell you how often the Bayreuth Festival has not sold out and how great The National Theater production in Mannheim will be this Spring. They sent us up to the glider/parasailing port just 20k to the east where we spent a fantastic day watching some eagles sore and some wet parakeets try to get off of the ground. Came back and had dinner, then drinks with "the girls" to make our evening perfect. Guest services at the Fairmont in Hamburg had sent us. He was right. I thanked him by email.

Room Tip: Difficult to find a bad room. Ask if the painting on the second floor of the comely 22 year old was...

We stayed for three nights and this is a wonderful hotel. The owners are two sisters who take incredible care of their guests. They are always buzzing around the hotel making sure you have what you need. The rooms are well appointed and I found that they were larger than typical European hotel rooms. I was travelling with two young children and they had a room that had a connecting "corner" that featured a small twin bed. My 6 year old son loved it because it felt like his own room to him but he was still within our room. The restaurant is amazing - definitely the best food I had in Germany. If you are anywhere near Frankfurt and you are travelling with young kids and want to see a typical German town, make Fulda your stop. The hotel is within short walking distance of a beautiful park with a long pebble path. Many families are cycling and walking and playing. Along the path you will find several different playgrounds with really fun things to do (very different from the American playgrounds). There is even a fire station museum that is well oriented for children. The hotel is also right on a walking path to great little shopsThere is also a playground directly behind the hotel. If you go in the Summer time, be sure and make a stop at the rodel bahn- it is about a 30 minute drive into the mountains and the kids can ride down a zipline of sorts (you sit rather than stand) and my boys had a blast. I would say this is a 4 star hotel- American stars. . The only negative is that the bed is a bit firm.
