I had to stay for three nights in this four-star hotel, which is in walking distance (10 min) from the station as well as from the city. The room was clean, the wardrobe was large enough for a short stay and a single person, only. There were no reading lamps beside the beds, the TV screen rather small, and no...

Came to the city for a business meeting, the Hotel and its staff are nice and helpful. The food is good. Walking distance to a shopping mall and downtown area. It is the capital of breweries in the world. And has a great underground historical built tunnels

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...

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...

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...

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. On our return we had dinner in the dining room. The tables beautifully decorated and nicely served. Our room was very quiet but there were no drawers to put things...

“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).”
