I loved this hotel. I had a single room (#207) with a great view of the river and fortress. Even though it was a single, it felt roomy and everything seemed very well laid out. There was plenty of storage and closet space. The room was spotless, and the bathroom is very modern with a cool shower head that changes...

The room is nice and in good size. Very clean and great shower. The breakfast was ok. Not too many choices but enough and like many other german breakfasts. The location is the best. Less then 5 minutes to the center. What i didn't like is that we booked a room with a double bed (1 mattress) with a view...

We stayed here for 3 nights, using it as our base for day trips. The location was suitable to travel to and from the train station. We enjoyed the river view from our window and were comfortable walking around the area. The hotel is short of 5 stars because the breakfast, which was adequate, did not have fresh bread every...

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Alter Kranen. The thing that really made my stay remarkable though is the amazing staff who really went out of their way to help me out. I missed my train and came in to town very late, but the concierge figured out a way for me to help me out, still check in,...

Friendly and helpful staff from checkin. Parking (paid) opposite hotel was very convenient. Our room was extremely comfortable with great view of the river and castle. Breakfast was plentiful and enjoyable with good variety.

While staying I noticed several couples lingering over breakfast enjoying the views of the river and castle. Good price pleasant efficiently run hotel. No fuss just do your own thing. Short walk into the heart of town and Christmas fair. Lifts are small but ok. Comfortable bed although TV is small and a long way away. Very nice bathroom and...

This hotel is in a great location overlooking the river Main. The rooms are adequate in size and fairly well equipped (tea/coffee making equipment/hairdryer etc.) The car parking is ok if you have a fairly small car, otherwise you will need to use the underground public car park which is very nearby but can be very busy at weekends. I...

The hotel is on the shore of the river Main. It's only few minutes walk from the center of old town. Parking is available 200 m from the hotel. The rooms are comfortable and the free WiFi is very fast. The bathroom is small. You can choose room with a fantastic view to the old castle (and some traffic noise)...

Booked a standard double room for 2 nights through booking.com, I requested a room with a view and also parking. The next day an email from the Hotel confirmed a river view reservation and details about the parking – terrific customer service! I was happy - just loved the day and night view of the Marienburg Fortress from the room....
