I went to Bayreuth because of the famous Wagner Festival but I was too late to find a hotel located in centrum and also close to the festival house. By accident I came up with Arvena hotel and on their web site I couldn't reserve a room because they were full at that time. And suddenly I decided to email them to ask (and beg:)) for a room and guess what? They replied my mail immediately and helped me that I could stay there. The hotel was very clean, their breakfast was continental and perfect and they serve wonderful dinners after perfomrnaces no matter what time it was. I had a great time in Bayreuth and Arvena was one of the reasons for me.

This place comes into its own during the Wagner-fest. It is one of the nearest hotels to the Festspielhaus and makes a real effort to accommodate the requirements - and eccentricities - of Wagnerites. Before the performance, as you wait for the vintage miniature 8-seater bus to take you up the hill, you consume a complimentary glass of Sekt and tasty snacks. After the performance, you can walk back in 15 minutes and the restaurant remains open till well after midnight. The menu (offering light dishes or a full meal) is excellent. Next morning, if you want a lie-in, you can take a late brunch instead of breakfast – all included in the room rate. The quality of both buffets is basic, but good. If your appetite for Wagner is insatiable, DVDs of famous productions are constantly playing in the lobby, and on the last 10 days of the festival, excellent lectures in English take place in the morning, organised by the New York Wagner Society. For most of the year this is a business hotel, so the rooms are functional, rather than ‘gemutlich’, with trouser-press, mini-bar, safe and multi-language TV channels. Other facilities are provided free on request – such as a kettle and bathrobes. On the top floor there is a sauna, steam-room, gym and sun terrace. The location seems rather out-of-town, but in fact it isn’t. Here’s a tip. Take the footpath from the back of the hotel to the path along the river, and it’s a very pleasant 10-minute walk to the centre.

Room Tip: Some top floor rooms have a view of the Festspielhaus

Great hotel to stay in for the Wagner festival. The rooms are modern, reception friendly and helpful but more..the buffet breakfasts offer many options. At about noon the buffet is expanded with some hot lunch dishes. Nice snack with proseco is included before the bus to the opera hall. We have stayed here twice and will stay next year should we be able to get tickets to the operas,

Stayed here for the Wagner festival. We were very impressed with everything about this hotel. Although a large hotel the service all round felt very personal and caring. The room was extremely comfortable. We were particularly impressed with the staff on reception, the bar staff were great and the restaurant first class. Parking is either free or only a small fee in the underground garage. Other hotels charge a lot more.

They cater perfectly for the festival. The atmosphere in the restaurant and bar after the performances was lovely.
This will be our first choice hotel if we come to the festival again!

Stay at Arvena Kongress 3 nights during Bayreuth festival. Rooms may not be glamorous but are big and very comfortable. Very nice staff. Everything is done to make the stay pleasant for people who are attending the festival (very extended breakfast hours / room available early on arrival / late dinner at the restaurant after the performances).
The food at the restaurant is excellent.
15 mn walk to the Festspielhaus / banhof / beautiful old Bayreuth center)
Will stay there again.
