We stayed here for five nights in July 2018. Maybe I'm just a typical American, but the lack of air conditioning caused problems. While it wasn't terribly warm during our stay, it was nearly impossible to get any cool air from outside into our room. The windows open from the top, but be aware, they also swing toward the inside (play with it a little, and you'll figure it out). But the main problem is that the hotel sits right by a rather busy street, so you hear traffic noise all night long. It is about 50 yards from a railroad track. Trains go through all night long. Just when you are about to fall asleep, it sounds like a train is about to go through your room. The hotel is decent, but having 5 breakfasts there became a bit monotonous. The breakfast is (apparently) a traditional German breakfast with meats, sausages, cheese, veggies and LOTS of bread. The first couple mornings, this was fine. But every morning, it was the same fare presented in the same way. There were no variations at all.
I guess my recommendation is to be prepared for what you will find at the Acron-Wittenberg. The staff is not necessarily friendly or terribly helpful. The free WiFi is virtually nonexistent. Bring your noise-cancelling headphones and sleep mask. Plan to sleep in as little clothing as possible. If you're planning to stay there very long, plan a couple breakfasts away so you can get some variety.
Nice Friendly Hotel, Conveniently Located

I ended up at this hotel when the hotel I reserved wasn’t available. It was very nice and I was very pleased. The hotel was not fancy, but very functional with a friendly staff. I had a single room which was on the small side, but it worked well for me. There were two small beds in the room. The property is conveniently located ¼ mile from the train station and ½ mile from the Luther Hotel, where I was attending a convention. This hotel had its own parking lot, which was very important as I was driving an auto during my stay. The included breakfast had a nice assortment of meats, cheeses, breads and cereals and a nice airy dining room. The room rates were very reasonable – comparable to a budget hotel in the U.S. but with much better amenities.
As with all hotels in Wittenberg, and many in Germany and Europe, there is no air conditioning. One must leave the windows open. While it was warm (28 degrees C / 82 degrees F) during my stay, it was dry and everything cooled off in the evening. My room faced the front of the hotel, which is right across from the train tracks. I am a train buff, so watching the various trains go by was fun. However, if the noise from this bothers you, be sure to request a room facing the back of the building.
I had a very nice 4 night stay at the Acron Hotel.
Good, well priced Hotel.

I stayed at this Hotel for 9 weeks on business. The staff were helpful. The rooms have free Wifi.
It's a good well priced Hotel, Wittenberg town centre is a five minute walk.
Don't expect The Ritz, but you won't be paying The Ritz prices either.
Gasthaus Experience was Great for this American!

We decided to stay in a German hotel while visiting Wittenberg. The beds were twin-size with firm mattresses and the typical German "quilts". The bathroom was small, but had amenities we needed. The best part of the German experience was morning breakfast! A beautiful dining room with many German morning foods to choose from. We often stay with families while visiting Germany, we felt this hotel truly reflected a German-style vacation spot. The front desk staff spoke good English and were very helpful when we asked about Wittenberg's attractions. It is also easily within walking distance of the train station, about a mile. We visited in March, so the hotel was quite quiet and our meals were leisurely. Grew up by train tracks, so I guess I did not register the trains going by!
