“Extremely well located on pedestrian zone but rooms are very small and very spartan...”
Reviewed 2 September 2011

This hotel is in the middle of the action in terms of things to see and do, with lots of old buildings, old restaurants, the bishop's old palace, the old castle and the old cathedral all just a few steps away from the lobby. Don't come with a car, as parking is extremely limited, hard to access even with a small car and very expensive (15 euros a night in addition to the room). The food is okay, but better in the surrounding restaurants. The service is fair, most of the staff seem to be putting in their hours as required without much enthusiasm for what they do. Rooms are very small and cramped, minimally furnished and very expensive....essentially you are paying for the location, the room is thrown in as an extra. Don't plan on spending a lot of time in your room.

Room Tip: Higher up rooms have better views.

Reviewed 22 March 2009

Only stayed here due to the location and price compared to other hotels. It was very expensive for what was offered for a double room. Cable TV, no mini bar/fridge. The breakfast which was included in the room rate was appallingly insufficient.

Reviewed 23 January 2009

It was accidental choice of the the accomodation in the charming center of historical Bamberg.
Unfortunately, the hotel is very avarage, with no spirit and character. The rooms with old furnitures, but tidy enough and clean. The surrounding is quite noisy / night pedestrians returning from restaurants and bars, bells from the church tower/.
The positiv point was the offer of free garage for my car.
The breakfast was very common, nothing special to remember.
The meal room needs for sure refurbishment.
Like for the 3 stars hotel in the off season winter weekend in the almost empty town, the price was quite high - 90 € for double room.

  • Liked — free garage in the downtown
  • Disliked — no character
