Hotel Garni - Haus Gemmer: Comfortable and just right

More of an updated inn in feel than a hotel. Located an easy 10 minute walk from the ancient, old Town of Coburg. Impeccably kept room (#20) at 79 Euros for 2 people with 3 beds so lots of space for relaxation.

Well maintained. No lobby to lounge around in but still comfortable. Very limited internet access. Staff very nice but limited english (except for the owner). VERY important to call ahead if your check-in is 8pm or later! I'm told that a lot of cultural institutions put-up their speakers and visitors here. Very well laid-out breakfast.

Hostel: DJH Hostel - Coburg

This hostel is in an old castle/patrician's house. There is also a new addition in the back. The hostel manager very graciously allowed me to store my pack in the office before registration hours which are from 1700 - 1900.

This is a wonderful hostel. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The entire place is spotless! The floors shine as do the marble stairs. I cannot say that this hostel is anything but exceptional, my thanks to all of the staff and teachers of the groups staying at the hostel when I was there. I should also say that the kids were very well-behaved, indeed. It is also right on a bus line.

I was only there for 1 night because I believed that the town could be visited in one day. Not so, and I will go back soon.

Again, my thanks to managers, Mr.&Mrs. Thom Roessler, and to their terrific staff. I apologize to them for not taking a picture of the dorm room, which was perfect.

This is another of the Deutsche Jugend Herbergen (DJH) which is a national organization affiliated with Hosteling International (HI). In both Germany and Austria, the HI hostels are very family and youth oriented with programs for both. They have rules, are gender separate, and are not party hostels. Many are not open 24 hours per day. Some have curfews and registration hours. What you get is a very clean room with reasonably comfortable bunks or beds, spotless toilets and showers, a nice, continental breakfast of rolls, bread, jams, cereals, cheese, lunch meats, juice and coffee. You also get enough quiet to allow for a reasonable nights' sleep. Polite and friendly service from the staffs is another plus. Bus line is one-half block.

Again, this is not a party hostel, which is not to say that it is not a fun hostel. Fun is where you make it.

Coburg Youth Hostel (JH Coburg): Cheaper Accommodation

For the cheapest accommodation in town there is the Coburg Youth Hostel, a couple of kilometers south of the centre at Park Str. I can't vouch for it, having never stayed there, but it looks nice enough, set in the "redbrick neo-Gothic castle" (Rough Guide) of Schloss Ketschendorf. Prices are 14.20 euros per night in shared dorms, including breakfast. You have to be a member of the YHA to stay, and they won't accept people over the age of 27 (Bavarian rules).

Failing the Youth Hostel, there are cheap private rooms that can be booked from the tourist office.

Hotel Garni/House Gemmer: Comfortable, but a little Characterless

This excellently run, clean, efficient, and comfortable hotel was only hampered by its slightly out of town location, and the lack of character, compared to some of the older hotels in the town center. The hotel owner, the matron, keeps the place ticking over nicely, and it was nice to find the room tidied and the mini-bar refreshed, even after a long lie-in on a weekend. They were also very helpful in allowing us (there were five of us staying) to use one of the free apartments to do our cooking in. Considering we were staying there for months on end, it was fantastic to have a kitchen available to us. I have little but praise for Hotel Garni.

Hotel Gerberhof: Comfortable, mid-range, off-beat hotel.

This cozy, centrally located hotel is a warren of rooms, created by knocking two buildings together. It is off a side street from the main drag, but can still get a little noisy at night, being right by some of the best watering holes in all Coburg. That means it's great for staggering back to after a few beers, but not so great if you are sensitive to noise. It is usually fine, though, as long as the local police don't overreact and set up a road block on Steinweg, or drunken American servicemen from nearby Bamberg standing and shouting about baseball outside your window at 4am, like I did.

The owner is a little eccentric: a short man, with bright white hair and beard, and a great bald spot on top. Despite his small stature, the restaurant side of the hotel is covered in the trophies and photographs of his heroic adventures, including a picture of him holding a fish almost twice his height, and the skin of what must be a giant rat hanging on the entrance wall. The breakfast area has pictures of him dressed like a Hell's Angel, on a low rider, sporting the German imperial flag on the end of a taut metal aerial. In addition, the same area is decked out in a clutter of memorabilia, including some freakish 19th century puppets.

I stayed in this hotel for a month, and it was very comfortable. The owner didn't speak a word of English, but his son tried his best when he was around. There was a very substantial breakfast served up every morning, and they were very flexible about when I could eat. They made a big effort, often just for me, as it was the middle of winter and few other guests were ever there. It often made me feel guilty when they produced vast quantities of coffee, tea, orange juice, bread, cereal, fruits, cheeses, and I only ate a little bread and cheese, or even nothing at all as I rushed off to work.
