Sorat Insel-Hotel Regensburg

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel has an excellent location, across the Danube from the town centre: an easy walk away. Very near two great beer gardens. The hotel bar and breakfast were delicious. Rooms were very clean, spacious and comfortable. In particular, this hotel had very efficient and helpful staff. The reception helped us arrange a day canoeing by calling a few number for us. It was much appreciated.

A well designed and comfortable hotel -- with great views of the Danube and instant access to the old city. No air conditioning but adequate ventilation through the generous window and fan. Very much enjoyed the last minute stay -- parking a plus -- great places to walk and enjoy the food, cafes, brewery, and great shopping.

The location of this hotel can't be faulted right in the middle of the Danube with super views over the old city. We had a junior suite made up as a family room on the ground floor. A good size, very comfortable. Friendly and welcoming staff. Unfortunately one of the windows looked out onto the bar area - this was fairly quiet when we were there but could be annoying. Location is excellent, a minute from the main old bridge across the river to the old town. The air conditioning in our room wasn't working which made it a bit hot - the staff tried to fix the issue and supplied a fan when they were unable to do so. On checking out we were given a discount without asking due to the failed air con so I am happy with how this was dealt with. There is a car park at cost but note if you have a roof box you won't fit in. Parking around is at a premium so you may have a bit of a walk. We were able to move closer in the evening. Note that if you have a wheelchair that the bathroom and toilet doors are very narrow and not very accessible. There is a disabled room but this was booked already when we made our reservation. It was doable for us as our son isn't so large we can't lift him, but for an adult it could be a problem. Breakfast was good - standard German fare with cooked meats, breads etc.

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. The view to the old town and the old stone bridge could not be better. The rooms and furnishings whilst large, are poorly lit, dated and lack flow though air on a hot evening. The bar man was very friendly and helpful in suggesting new drinks to try. Breakfast is a good venue, albeit if you coincide with a bus group staying in the hotel, then the lovely room is full and noisy, taking away from the ambience of otherwise a pleasant dining room. A surprise was prepackaged lunch bags available, at not cost outside the breakfast room.

We stayed here for couple of nights in two lots. Once at the beginning of our tour and then in another time in the later half of our holiday. First time, we stayed in Room 201. This is the presidential suite and it is huge. It has a wonderful view of the river Danube, the iconic Regensburg church and the old Regensburg city. This room is air-conditioned. The next time we stayed in Room 221 (Standard Room). This room does not have a view to boast off but was spacious and comfortable. The room is not air-conditioned but it did have a pedestal fan to cool you down during summer. The hotel has good breakfast and a awesome bar by the river.

Hotel is located at the Danube river, near to ancient Stone Bridge and in walking distance to old City. You should check for a room with river and City view (e.g. Junior Suite). Nice and friendly staff. Good selection of food at breakfast. Although I was not often there last years, I was still recognized as a recognized as a regular guest with a welcome gift.

Stayed 3 nights in the Sorat-Insel Regensburg. We had a junior suite for 3 people with a perfect view of the Danube and the Old Town. It was a fabulous location and we were very happy with our choice. The room was spacious and clean and the service at the hotel was great. Breakfast was included each day and we enjoyed starting each day with breakfast in the outdoor area.

This is a good hotel, super staff and spacious rooms. The location is the great plus of this hotel, you are 500 yards away of the old stone bridge ! Breakfast is perfect too. A small minus, there is NO air conditioner in the rooms, so if it's hot....

Situated on the Danube, overlooking the Stone Bridge and Regensburg's old town, the location of this hotel can't be beaten. It's just a couple of minutes walk to the town and about 5-10 minutes in a taxi from the main station. The restaurant has a decent menu, though there was a wedding on when we stayed there so it was closed. The only reason I haven't given the hotel 5 stars is the lack of air conditioning - it was very hot when we were in Regensburg (over 30 degrees) and though the hotel provides a fan in the rooms, it was still very uncomfortable at night. A lovely place to stay overall.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Nicely appointed clean rooms. Great Location with lovely view over the old City. We have stayed here a few times since they opened 22 years ago and have always been very happy with one exception when we had a room on the ground floor next to the Bar which was very noisy at night. We've already booked our next visit in December and are looking forward to it.
