Hotel Arvena Reichstadt is a nice hotel. That’s the bottom line of our two night stay this August. We were given a room on the first floor and were delighted to find that the room was spic & span, that it had a nice ample balcony with chairs and a table and that the view from the balcony over the inner, verdant court of the hotel framed by the woodwork facades of the surrounding houses of Bad Windsheim was truly relaxing. We slept with our windows open at night and were struck by the sublime quiet outdoors. The hotel is a stone’s throw from the small, quaint center of Bad Windsheim and if you park your car in the hotel’s garage (6.5 EUR/day) then you don’t need to worry about parking tickets. We ate dinner twice at the hotel and were satisfied with the standard. We ate outdoors on the terrace as the weather was so enticing but on worse days you can take take dinner in the restaurant of the hotel housed in what used to be an old school and is now aptly named ‘Alte Schule’. The food was of good quality albeit on the expensive side compared to food prices in the rest of the town or in Germany in general. All staff that we had contact with were extremely welcoming and guest oriented. The rooms are not exuberant in decoration but not exactly Spartan either. They could best be described as comfortably functional. One minus probably goes to the flat pillow. This tends to be a recurrent problem in many German hotels. There were no additional pillows in the room and the one provided gave very little to no neck support. The bathroom had all the mod cons that can be expected and was likewise very clean. The hotel does post a picture of a swimming pool on its web site. Keep in mind however that this picture is of the Franken Thermen which are a separate establishment at a 20 minute walk from the hotel. Entrance to the Thermen incurs an additional cost but the hotel does give a discount voucher (3.5 EUR off the listed price). The hotel also boasts a sauna but we found this to be closed. The breakfast area was pleasant and the range of food options was sufficient – again without being abundant. All in all a good sensible hotel with a good price-quality ratio and a charming atmosphere.
