The hotel was very nice and within walking distance to most things but was chilly at night. We stayed a night in early September and did not have adjustable heat for the room so we were cold unless we were rapped in blankets.
I thought the service and breakfast were both excellent. The rooms were well appointed. It was only the fact that it's in suburban Bamberg and is a bit of a walk into the Old Town. (There is a bus not too far away, though.)
Great staff. Good parking and forget the expense...Bamberg is a cycle city so cars are penalised. Accept that and accept that IBIS charges a reasonable daily rate for very very convenient car access. If you can't afford it stay 10 kms out of town and pat yourself on the back for the saving! Look the room is tiny but somehow we fit, even with a months worth of Europe travel luggage. If you want to see the best of German Franconian culture, Bamberg is a must and the Ibis is as good as any place to see it from.
Avoid the in room wifi though...it didn't work and we cancelled very early after constant drop outs.
Very pleasant neighborhood. Pleasant surrondings, and close to all things you will want to see.
Somewhat challenging to find, and a liitle challenging to access with luggage. Beyond those items, everything was wonderful. Been in many hotels in Europe, and this provides excellent value.
A university town dating back more than 1,000 years, Bamberg is home to Germany’s largest preserved old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The imperial Bamberg Cathedral, with its four towers, dominates the historic quarter. The Town Hall stands on an island in the middle of the Regnitz River. Other attractions include Alte Hofhaltung Palace, the Neue Residenz, and more than a dozen museums.
