I stayed for one night in Barbarossa hotel in May, the hotel is situated on the 4th floor in a really strategic location. Five minutes walk from the train station.
The room was Cody with a lot of character and had all the basics. It was clean but the only problem for me was the noise (because of the birds on the roof of the building I guess)!
Breakfast was modest with few options but was enough. I would definitely recommend this place :)
Ps: staff were very friendly and attentive :D
Bio breakfast is available for 12 euro and includes a range of juices, cheese, meats, olives, bread and jams. Friendly family run hotel with rooms with bathrooms. Each room is decorated differently. Great location as footsteps away from main Theatreplatz and shops, food places and trains. Catch the train from Hauptbahnhof to the hotel with a few lines running straight there. The Wurtzburg Residenz is just a couple of hundred meters down the road on the same street. Easy walk to see this main attraction. Good security and facilities.
On the Webpage of the hotel it is said that parking is possible. But when you arrive you have no possibility. After I've tried twice to find a parking area I have cancelled my room. the receptionist promised that no costs will occur for me. But the owner had charged my credit card. I´m not amused and will never go to this hotel again
The staff are wonderful and quite chatty.
I should have been travelling with a friend but his father was rushed to hospital. They let me cancel his room at short notice.
The rooms are good (with lots of pillows). Had breakfast once which is fairly priced at 10 Euro. They have a very nice dog, who appears in the evenings.
Stayed at Barbarossa for 2 nights and the environment didn't met our expectation:
While the hotel appeared very romantic and bohemian on its promotional images, in reality it was not only mediocre but pretty worn down: the breakfast hall has dingy walls and paintwork which seem haven't renovated for centuries. Also the breakfast was overpriced but with limited choices.
The bathroom was old-fashioned and dim, and I was almost trapped inside the shower cubicle (it seemed the doors are gonna fall off soon). But fortunately they had provided liquid soap and sufficient loo rolls for daily routines.
Another major problem is, the hotel was too frugal and the lights were off within seconds once turned on during evenings. Environmental protection is important but you guys shouldn't prioritise it over safety of the guests, especially young female travelers. The corridors were too narrow and cramped with various decorations- which appear quite kitschy and messy. The rooms weren't cleaned up daily either! We stayed at Room 22 but it seems the WLAN was too week even browsing simple networks...
The only thing that compensates is the friendly girl working at the reception and preparing the breakfast. However you should hire, maybe some high school grads or college students avoiding overworking the current employees...
