Prices and meeting rooms

Unfortunately, the price for a 4-star hotel is also quite high. With only 40 rooms, it is only suitable for small groups.

The meeting rooms are also designed for a maximum of 45 people and are not located in the hotel, but can be rented in the Chamber of Commerce directly opposite - then again in the usual boring meeting atmosphere.

Culinary and bar

A heart of the 25hours Hotel The Royal Bavarian is the NENI restaurant. People meet here for an oriental lunch or dinner.
