“Charming family-run hotel”
Reviewed 24 December 2011

Hotel Europa was a short walk from everything in town--restaurants, brewery, Christmas market, and other attractions. Staff went out of their way to make visitors feel comfortably at home. Rooms are small and cozy, but I had everything I needed--great shower, TV, hair dryer, plenty of storage, mini-fridge. Staff waved goodbye at the door as we left. The breakfast buffet was fresh, plentiful, with plenty of variety. Good choice in Bamberg.

The Hotel Europa is just across the river from the old city of Bamberg -- very convenient to the tourist sites, though not in the tourist district itself. There is a pedestrian bridge less than one block from the hotel into the old town. The hotel is clean and modern, and the desk staff speak reasonably good English.

I had a few minor things to criticize, but they apply to almost any tourist hotel. First, every horizontal surface in my room (and bathroom) was covered with something. Getting settled in I had to move all the unnecessary junk to one table and put a lamp on the floor to make room for my computer. Second, there was a small leak in the bathroom that led to recurring wetness on the bathroom floor -- annoying to step into late at night. These problems however should not be magnified. I've rarely stayed in a tourist-level hotel that didn't have some kind of minor problem.

On the plus side, the in-room ethernet is free and very fast -- very impressive!

Overall, this is a good choice for the price. No disasters, no regrets. Just a good (not great) tourist hotel.

Hotel prices are generally high in Bamberg & we settle for a room with breakfast ( available 6am to 10am) included booked through HRS with just a credit card security. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the train station and the room although much smaller than our prior apartments on this trip, is fine. There is wired internet and it is generally a comfortable stay. Very good breakfast included in rate. Wakeup call & checkout were prompt & easy.
We also located a great flat walk (well used by the locals) along the River Regnitz that takes us 30 odd minutes out of town.
We enjoyed the food in Bamberg with simple sandwiches, an Italian meal at Felini’s that is rec mended on Trip Advisor (good food & fantastic service) and beers, wine & pig trotter & saeurkaut in the traditional hotel Heska. We also enjoyed home made freshly oven baked pasta dishes in the hotel restaurant. All food is very cheap, 7.5 euros for the pasta dishes ( big servings) at the hotel.

I have booked this hotel for one night. It is located in the centre of the town, but on the rather wide street, with possibility of parking the car. The room was comfortable, very clean and spacey. Very rich and good breakfast in the morning. So, nothing to complain.
