We have stayed there for one night, as a family (4). We got an "appartment" which was quite nice, very different from all chain hotel standard rooms. Be careful, it's called appartement, but it does not mean that you can cook there (it's only bigger and with an extra room). The hotel room was really clean and welcoming, but you... More

Nice and confortable hotel with excellent location to reach the old town within few minutes walk. Good breakfast , convenient parking for the cars. Easy access by car from the highway. One of the right places to stay for a relaxed visit of the town

We traveled to Bamberg on what was apparently a festival weekend (unknown to us at the time of booking, but it helped explain why it was so hard to find a reasonably priced hotel room). This hotel is a few minutes walk from the city center but that turned out to be a good thing with all the people in... More

A 15 minutes walk from the beautiful city centre. Parking on the street outside. The rooms need redecorating. They are a bit worn and unmodernised. So is the lobby (so important for the first impression). The breakfast room, though, is really nice and spacious with lots of light. We really enjoyed the breakfast, with fruits, meat, cheese and much more.

I drove here for a nearby business meeting and when I arrived in the evening it was snowing. I was able to park in their spaces, a short distance away. Checking in was quick and easy. The room I was given was at the corner of the building, on the first floor. It was big and very comfortable, but the... More

Reasonably priced, this is a comfortable stop-over hotel. The room and bathroom were very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the room simply, but nicely furnished. The shower room was a little dated in decor, but clean and everything functioned well. The public areas were well presented. Breakfast was a respectable buffet with good quality fresh food, and enough... More

Just home from fantastic weekend staying here. The staff are so lovely & helpful. The breakfast was outstanding. The bedroom was a little tired looking and could do with a mirror on the wall. It's situated just 3 mins walk from Banhof and 10 mins walk from Alt Stadt. So it's perfect for exploring all that Bamberg has to offer.... More

Was there on business trip, Hotel is located a bit further from the old town but still in walking distance. Rooms are good, bathroom could use some makeover, but clean. I liked the dining area downstairs. All in all your average hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times as it is only five minutes from the railway station, fifteen minutes walk from the centre of town and is reasonably priced, clean comfortable and has very helpful staff.

We had a small twin room, room was clean but standard old. Lots of noise from the street outside and no AC or fan. Service was really good and breakfast as well. If it had been cheaper I would be ok with the cons, but not for the price we paid. We booked quite late and could probably have got... More
