In the city center, parking close with hotel discount card. Friendly reception, excellent breakfast. Clean modern room and shower. Convenient location and good experience. 2nd time staying here and I'll return.
We enjoy our stay at Hotel Central, the rooms are spacious and clean, and my children love the breakfast selection. The location is very convenient for exploring downtown Bamberg, and vicinity of the public transport (bus station) makes it also easy to use it as starting point to check the surrounding areas. The price is reasonable for the quality of rooms. In the summer, the rooms may be on the warmer side.
We stayed here for 2 nights this month. Our room had one double bed and one single bed, which is what we were looking for (husband and me and our daughter). The beds were comfortable. Our room (#15) looked out onto the back area, so it was very quiet (we left our windows open at night). The bathroom was very good. There was a handheld shower head (with a clever magnetic holder) and a rainfall showerhead. The shower area doesn't have a curtain or door, but the area is deep enough to prevent water from coming out. The bathroom ventilation fan is interesting - it turns on a few minutes after you turn on the bathroom light, and stays on for a while after the lights go out. The vessel sink is somewhat impractical with water easily splashing out onto the counter. Although we were concerned at first with the glass door to the bathroom (other places we'd stayed in that had these, you could both see AND hear what was going on in the bathroom!), this was an unfounded concern here. The door has a nice gasket on it, preventing sound. Really nice. The bathroom comes with bulk wall mounted shower gel/shampoo and handsoap. Nitpicks - there was only 1 switch for the bathroom lights, and not a way to just have a dimmer night-time setting. Having a glass door means lights in the bathroom can disturb sleepers in the bedroom. Also, would be nice if the room had a hot water kettle or something. The lights in the bedroom area were odd, made you feel like you were in a hospital operating room!…
Very accurate attitude. We arrived late and reception provided detailed instructions, also about parking. Hotel is clean. Employees are polite and kind. Shower was freshly renovated. Breakfast was good.
We selected this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. We decided to take a taxi from the Bahnhof (about 9€). The hotel seems quite strict about checkin/checkout times so we cooled our heels eating a wonderful lunch at a nearby vintage German restaurant recommended by the reception person. Our room was cramped and the beds were uncomfortable. A fan had an hour timer, so we had to keep resetting it. And, of course, an open window on the first floor invited street noises. It’s a place to sleep, but one night was more than enough. The good news: breakfast is terrific. The room is clean, the shower good. A nice surprise: some English-language channels on satellite TV, including CNN. Apart from the breakfast (9.50€) I think better hotel values can be found in this beautiful city.
