    • Perfect place for Wagner Festival

      Reviewed 08 September 2019

      It's a big, conference hotel, near city center. They organise tranportation for the guests to Wagner Festival place and also some finger food and drinks in front of the reception, before you leave for the festival. They offer breakfast and brunch till 13:00.

    • Excellent place to stay for the Wagner Festival

      Reviewed 05 August 2019

      This was my second trip to Bayreuth for the Wagner Festival. The hotel I stayed at last time was unavailable and I chose this hotel as recommended by friends and am glad I did so. Cheaper than the other hotel across the board: room rates are cheaper, the bus up to the Festspiel Haus is free and the hotel close enough to be able to walk back down in the evening post-opera; breakfast spread is very good and included in the room price, as is the brunch from 11 am to 1 pm. All rooms are equipped with a mini-bar so you can buy milk, yoghurt etc. to store in the fridge in the room. There is also a safe in the room. The rooms are comparable in size and comfort and I personally found the staff at the Arvena much friendlier and more helpful overall. On nice days it is possible to have breakfast/brunch outside on the terrace. There are two buses going up to the Festspiel Haus: from 14.00 onwards there is an old-style bus taking a maximum of 8 people up to the gardens of the FH while at 15.00 the big bus leaves, taking passengers to the drop-off/pick-up point behind the FH. The bus down costs 5, payable directly to the driver. I appreciated being able to get to the FH early, to wander around, get a glass of something, sit on a bench etc. My only quibbles are that for a four-star hotel there are no slippers, no bathrobe and no body lotion. The first two lacks didn't bother me as I always pack my own slippers and a thin robe, but the lack of body lotion was a surprise (easily remedied by going into the shops nearby.) You can ask for an electric kettle for your room and there is an ironing room, well equipped with two ironing boards, irons and cloths to protect delicate clothes. The pre-opera drinks are self-service and the nibbles more basic (small sandwiches) so if you prefer liveried waiters serving you sekt and gourmet catering, marble entry halls and glimpses of royalty (Swedish king & queen stayed at the other hotel), this isn't the hotel for you. I will be staying here in future on return visits to Bayreuth.

    • A typical conference hotel.

      A typical conference hotel: large, clean, functional. 10-15 minutes walk from the historical centre of Bayreuth; 5-10 min. from the shopping centre. Good breakfast buffet and comfortable beds. Easy, free parking, either in the small lot, or in the underground garage. Rather empty in the weekends when there are no company meetings, sometimes full during the week. All what I expect from a 4-star business hotel.

    • A classic small hotel ..

    • Excellent venue for the Bayreuth Festival

      Reviewed 26 August 2018

      I was delighted by this hotel - I had booked to stay there two years ago but had to pass my room to someone else as I was too ill to travel, but I made it this year! It's ideally positioned - a 10-minute walk from the centre of the old town, 20 minutes on foot from the Festspielhaus and 20 minutes on foot from Wahnfried, Wagner's house. Before each performance transport is provided up to the Festspielhaus free of charge (the return costs 4 payable to the driver but I chose to walk back as the weather was so balmy). Drinks and snacks are provided while guests wait. The reception and restaurant staff were really friendly and helpful. Breakfast is from 6.30, and is expanded between 10.30 and 13.00 by hot dishes to form a kind of brunch. It's all done on an honesty basis, as nobody checks guests in or out of the restaurant and it was all very relaxed. There is an alcove just before the restaurant where Wagner recordings can be watched during the day. Like other guests, I found my room functional and clean, though the furniture could maybe be modernised in due course. If I can get tickets for the Festival next year, I will definitely try to book a room in this hotel again. Prices rise during the Festival, as one might expect! Vielen Dank und hoffentlich sehen wir uns nchstes Jahr schon wieder.
