Built 300 years ago as the home of a wealthy merchant, and having had many changes of use since, this is now a very comfortable hotel right in the heart of beautiful Bamberg. There are 13 rooms of varying size and the nightly rate is from 100 to 140 euros, including breakfast. All the attractions of Old Bamberg are on the doorstep and numerous restaurants serving excellent food at very reasonable prices are within easy walking distance. We had 1 of the 2 ground floor rooms, both of which are huge with great high ceilings. Rooms are very well heated in winter and have ultra modern furnishings and fittings. Bathrooms, too, are large but have no bath: however the power shower was excellent and there was constant hot water. Toiletries and towels were adequate, but no more than this. A nice glass-fronted bar/cafe/bistro which overlooks a pleasant courtyard, has been added, and is very popular with locals, as is the restaurant.. Buffet breakfast comprises mainly cold meats and cheeses, and the selection is good. Hot cooked breakfast is available on request but this appears to be a "well kept secret" - no one tells you this! The hotel is staffed mainly by young, energetic and attentive people, so service is good and fairly fast. However, it attracts great crowds of locals for weekend breakfast and finding a table can be difficult at these times. Hotel residents appear to be given no preference over locals. One problem with ground floor rooms is that of privacy. Windows are at street level and passers-by are inclined to have a good look in!!
