We spent a weekend in late June at Relais & Châteaux Hotel Burg Schwarzenstein as guests of a wedding reception. Location: It is a romantic setting on top of a hill overlooking vineyards and the Rhine valley below. There is not much left of the castle itself, however the remains and the donjon are integrated in the Burghotel and small... More

This is a wonderful hotel. The location is very special. The bedrooms are beautiful, the staff is superb, and the restaurant is lovely with a beautiful outdoor dining early. It would be nice if they had a swimming pool and some type of workout facility.

This hotel is one if the finest hotels I ever stayed in Europe. Rooms are excellent and the service is even greater. The place itself is perfect. I definitely recommend this hotel for those seeking a quite relaxing stay. Im looking forward for my coming visit to Germany to stay again in this hotel.

Lovely hotel with beautiful rooms in a lovely area of Germany. Rooms were large, very modern but classy with a large en-suite and kept very clean. Restaurant was really first class and we enjoyed dinner there on both nights of our stay. Staff were generally very good and very helpful although one or two in the restaurant were a bit... More

Burg Schwarzenstein is a small boutique hotel in the middle of the Rheingau wine region. We had an overall excellent stay. Service was very good from check-in to check-out. Staff is friendly and efficient. A welcome present consisting of a fruit platter, a small cake, and a half bottle of champagne awaited us in the room. The minibar, well stocked... More

Excellent hotel and restaurant. Everything was top notch, the surroundings, the hotel, the rooms, the restaurants, the staff. It was great all the way down to the smallest details. I will definitely be back! It's a small intimate hotel with all the benefits from a large hotel

We attended a wedding at Burg Schwarzenstein and everything was just great, from the friendly staff to the most beautiful ceremony we have ever been. Rooms are spacious and well equipped and food was fantastic. Certainly a place for a romantic weekend.

Burg Schwarzenstein, or Blackstone Castle to give its literal English translation, is a 38 room Hotel and Restaurant perched high on the hillside in the village of Johannisberg above the Rhine region of Geisenheim to the West of Frankfurt. Although a bit in the middle of nowhere its isolated position is quiet and picturesque, especially as it affords excellent views... More
