Hotel Kramerbrucke Erfurt
Ranked #4 of 45 Hotels in Erfurt
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2017

We stayed three nights in this hotel while visiting Erfurt. The hotel is an old guest house that has been extended and modernised, so retains some old features while gaining a modern feel.

Our room was a corner room on the third floor, overlooking the river and with a sideview of the merchants' bridge. From our room we could hear the buzz from the outdoor seating area adjacent to the river - a bit distracting at 2am, but it did make us feel part of the life of the city.

The room was a very good size and probably bigger than other rooms as it included a diagonal wall into the corner of the building. The furnishing was adequate - nothing exceptional - but comfortable. We did notice a large mark on the carpet, suggesting some deep cleaning might be necessary.

We found the breakfast arrangements on our first morning chaotic - possibly because it was a Saturday and we chose to eat at 9am. It was difficult to find somewhere to sit, and when we asked for cutlery and coffee it was almost thrown at us. The following two mornings we breakfasted earlier and found the breakfast room very peaceful with attentive service. The usual breakfast buffet with good choice of food was available.

Reception staff were helpful in answering questions. It was clear they had some English, but were possibly happier speaking to us in German, once we made it clear we were happy to communicate in the language of the country.

I would strongly recommend this hotel for its location and the atmosphere generated in that location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Merchants Bridge - it will be noisier but more atmospheric.

Have to mention the clean room because one day we returned back to our room a little earlier than normal and saw the housekeeper actually on her hands and knees cleaning the bathroom floor. Have never witnessed this attention to detail in all of my hotel stays. While the room decor is somewhat dated and room size could be slightly larger, the location to downtown cobblestone streets, shopping, parks, restaurants, churches and parks is fantastic! Lots of choices for breakfast. Desk staff was helpful more than once!

Had a wonderful 3 days with this hotel. Twin sharing room was adequate and clean but with erratic wifi in the room and bed that is quite small for an Asian what more for a tall German. Breakfast was good and more than expected with all the sausages and cheese that is tasty and good. They even have the perfectly cooked soft boiled eggs to booth. Coffee from the espresso machine and the juices were free flowing. But the extra touch of " to go" coffee at the main entrance gave an extra kick of caffein for those who are in a hurry. An ok hotel in a very lovely city of Erfurt worth coming back to.
