“Best Spot in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

A great place to stay in Bamberg! Located right along the river with great views of the Rathause. Everything is within walking distance of hotel, so location can't be beat.

Rooms: Bed and Breakfast style rooms with no thrills.

Price: Comparable to other hotels with worse locations.

Food: Breakfast is free and has plenty of options. Ate outside several nights and had great experience. Food was not bad or pricey.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the river.

Our room overlooked the square which could be a little noisy at night but otherwise everything was fine. Room was clean & comfortable. Unfortunately there was no safe in the room. Breakfasts were great and we ate downstairs one night & that was good too.
Location is super central.

Staying at the Brudermuehle is like coming home to your family. It is welcoming and fits around you like a favourite coat - there are other places to stay in Bamberg but this ticks all the boxes for us.

Good points - central, clean rooms, great beds and good food.
Downside - No on-site parking but we were allowed to park in the Police car park, just 100m walk.

If you like the sound of water (we do) choose the rooms beside the mill stream, great views of the Rathaus.

I attended a conference at the university and stayed at the Brudermuehle, right on the river in the centre of Bamberg. It's a perfect location, 5 minutes from everything in Bamberg (which is a lovely city). I took a taxi from the rail station -- it's walkable, but it was raining and it's just far enough away to be awkward with luggage. I had a room looking out over the nearby square. The room was quite a good size, comfortable, with two twin beds, a good-sized writing desk, and a large bathroom with tub and shower. It was quiet and comfortable - I wasn't disturbed by street or river noise. I slept really well both nights I was there.

Breakfast in the morning was very good - excellent breads, good cheese and jams, cereals, juice and fruit, eggs. I didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening.

I'd definitely stay again - the staff were charming and helpful, the rooms extremely comfortable, and I felt right at home. Plus, they gave me a wrapped apple to take when I departed!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper you may want to ask for a room away from the river.

This is a great little hotel in the heart of the old town in Bamberg. It is between the old city hall built in the center of the river, and the local police station which used to be Levi Strauss' house. The river side rooms have a nice view of same. You could not find a room closer to the town center.

The rooms themselves are small but well appointed, clean and inviting for a "gasthaus", and the restaurant is truely great, but that is reviewed under restaurants. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms utilitarian but spotless.

The staff is limited in English ability, but they are very friendly and accomodating and try their best. As mentioned in other reviews there is no elevator, nor parking, BUT there is curb space in front for offloading baggage and the public parking garage is less than a block away. It is on a quiet side street so it is very quiet at night. I enjoyed my stay and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Simple German language skills will help, but I rate this hotel very tourist friendly.

Room Tip: Try to get the corner room overlooking the river in the main building.

When we were searching for a hotel in the heart of the old town we came across this gem. Don't be fooled by the brochure or website pictures of the from of this hotel. They need to change that. We booked this online and to our amazement when we were shown to our room the view was unforgettable and l felt l had gone back in time 1,000 years. l loved this town and the view of the town hall from my room. The breakfast was extensive and the character of this place won me. l will return.

Room Tip: Ask for room number 1.

Being shown to our room to find we were right on the river looking on to the main tourist attraction was amazing. The water rushing passed as it has for centuries. We just sat with all the windows opened and enjoyed the view. The room was large and colorful. The bathroom had towel warmers so we could do a little washing. Breakfast was extensive and fresh. Meats, cheeses, cereals, eggs and pastries. It was a little expensive for our budget but of all our month long travels it was my most memorable stay.
