This was a one-night stay while on the road and the Arvena served us well. Free parking or even inside for a modest price, friendly staff eager to explain how to walk downtown, and a great room at a great price. Really a deal.

This was our third Bayreuth Festival visit. Previously we stayed outside the city, which was an underwhelming experience. The Arvena hotel is very convenient for the Festspielhaus (walking distance but the hotel also runs a free shuttle). Rooms are small but comfortable and quiet. Breakfast is sumptuous; we also had dinner at the hotel restaurant after the performance, which was... More

When visiting Bayreuth for the opera festival there, Arvena is the hotel to stay in during this periode. Always welcon, nice staff in the reception, excellent service in the restaurant. One of the best breakfast selection, and the restaurant after the performances offer ver good and tasty meal with the best service of the young staff. Can absolutely be recommended.

I just spent nine nights here (for seven operas) during the Wagner Festival, which almost all the guests were attending. Other than the opera, the hotel emphasizes its location for business conferences. The staff were very friendly and helpful with directions. There was, however, no one to help with luggage on arrival. The hotel provides a free bus going TO... More

Service is excellent here. The facility itself is not especially luxurious, and decor is a bit kitschy. But the people go out of their way to make guests comfortable. Great food, very helpful staff. A nearby mall (5 minutes walk) caters to every need. And this is the only fully air conditioned hotel in town. Our only complaints are the... More

The location was perfect . We were taken to the Opera by bus and collected again. Before leaving we were given sparkling white wine canapés and all kinds of goodies.

“None of the rooms have a spectacular view, but all of the upper-level rooms are OK. It's best to get a room that does not face the courtyard. Few of them do (mostly hallways face the courtyard).”
