We stayed at this Bamberg hotel for over a week. The room we had (a large double with an extra bed) was spacious, though everything felt quite dated: the sofa reminded me of college days. We happened to hit Bamberg during a particularly hot spell, so the lack of air-conditioning became a real problem, especially since the noise from nearby beer gardens and bars lasted late into the night, and delivery trucks began servicing businesses very early in the morning--so the requisite open windows at night allowed in as much noise as cool air. A large breakfast buffet is available (we were automatically charged 5 euros each for it), and it is good. As others have noted, the reception desk is limited, since it closes at 7:00 pm, and it is "staffed" by only one person in the morning (who is seldom there, since she is also running the breakfast buffet). Since the hotel is locked after 7:00 pm, you need to have your (large) key with you, and, since my wife and I were often at different places, we had to beg to have two keys (apparently they only have two and are loathe to give both to guests). The refrigerator upstairs stocked with beer, water, and fruit juice for one euro a bottle is a real bargain and a nice touch. We found the beds okay, but the heat made sleeping iffy. Great restaurant (Eckert's) right across the way, on the bridge over the river, and a good restaurant and brewery right next door (Klosterbrau), with excellent brown beer on tap. Good location. But I think next time in Bamberg, I'll try another place, maybe the Barock am Dom, which looked lovely and was a little more centrally located.
