Lovely rustic rooms with vintage furnishings. No kettle to make tea. In the winter when it's 1 degree Celsius outside, it would've been great to come back to a steaming cup of tea in bed so a bit disappointed. Staff were a little offish - perhaps it's the Bavarian culture? They were quite short with a harsh tone. Amazing location....

Travelled to Bamberg on the train from Frankfurt, was such an easy and cheap journey. €150 for 5 of us, return. Have been here before in the summer on a day trip when staying in nearby Erlangen, and wanted to visit in the Xmas market season and we weren't disappointed. Room was warm and clean, plenty of room for a...

Right in front of the Schlenkerla the hotel makes the experience in Bamberg unique. The prices are not so high and it offers the possibility to park your car in the center itslef (quite a feat). I recognize that it is not so easy to reach it given Bamberg´s geography, but it was worth it.

for travlers moving via tarain, it's very difficult to reach the hotel by bus. Taxi may be the only way if you have large luggage. Beside, there is noisy of laugh & talk from the surrounding bar & restaurants till midnight. Had better not to stay here is you need a good sleep during the trip.

Wandering around this lovely little UNESCO heritage site is a great way to spend an afternoon and evening. You don't need more than one night here, that's the perfect amount of time to wander around and enjoy the smoked beer unique to this town. There is a university here which I think is what contributes to more of a nightlife...

There are only twenty rooms in this hotel and if location is your main interest, then this should suffice. Several drawbacks prevent a higher rating. They advertise on-site parking but only if you have a car that's short and lower than shoulder height. The nearest parking garage is a substantial distance from the hotel. The room was clean but due...

If you want to spent a weekend, or a few days in Bamberg, this hotel is a very good choice. Only short distances to walk to the famous sightseeing spots in town. And you can have a nice and tasty meal of local cuisine (and of couse a good beer) in the hotels "Biergarten"!

Nice hotel in the middle of the altstadt. The hotel is nothing special, but just fine, and it has a perfect location in this fantastic middle-age town. Remember to try out the local breweries, especially the Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier, a lager with a kind od smokey taste...really good!

It consists of the main wing with 20 rooms (all with shower, WC, telephone, TV and mini-bar) and the timberwood frame wing (shower or bath, WC, telephone, TV and minibar). WiFi is available throughout the house, free for overnight guests. Our rustic restaurant offers Franconian specialties, z. B. Schauferla and sausages, smoked beer and good francoina wines.

Just ask us if your vehicle fits. The Alt-Ringlein is located in the old town part, in the heart of World Heritage between Cathedral and Schlenkerla. Everything is within easy walking distance, z. B. The Cathedral, the new residence or the old town hall. For the night owls provides the Bamberg Nightlife, right next to our house, a lot of attractions, events and entertainment. The old town part of Bamberg is a living district, during the day or in the night. The Schlenkerla is directly opposite, the main pub alley next to it. It could be very quiet or very loud loud. ... more   less
