A great little hotel, which delivers a rare homely charm. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and it was a joy to be in a hotel where so many people cared. First class. We stayed in the 'snow queen' room, which had very comfortable beds a nice bathroom and a comfortable seating area. I wasn't quite convinced... More

We arrived at Märchenhotel on May 19, for a 3-day stay. This is a historical house in the center of Bernkastel city, on the Mosel river borders. At first, you have to remember that you may not drive through the city with your car, but Märchenhotel can supply you with a designated park space quite near, for a few Euros... More

First the positives, great position in the pretty but touristy Bernkastel. Lovely old building and pretty but small restaurant. Parking was available around the corner and both rooms booked were large. The rooms were well furnished, but the whole frog fairy tale thing is a bit odd. Our friends rooms had a large sitting room and bathroom with a bedroom... More

My wife and I stayed here twice, first on a last minute mini-honeymoon, and again on our one year anniversary. We ate at the hotel restaurant (Anno 1640) both times, see my review on that for more. We booked the 2 night package both times. Each room is unique so we picked a different one each time. The rooms are... More

Small family owned hotel (for the past 10th generation according to the hotel pamphlet) in a real timbered house right in the middle of the old town centre. Our room was quite small but clean. Breakfast was fine. Service was excellent and very friendly. Meals were above standard with fresh produce from the region and with the appropriate wine for... More

I think we must have had the last room. It was small and dark green. Very old fashioned. Noise from toilet all night. Food very expensive and couldn't quite understand the fairy tale link.

Many thanks for your criticism, which we are always happy to answer to. We are very happy that our service was to your liking. You booked on of the standard rooms, so they are of course not comparable to our romantic rooms. Breakfast is priced at €7,50 per person which we find is very reasonable. Because we are located in...

We checked trip advisor and decided to try Marchen hotel. We stayed there for three days. The location of the hotel is very good at a quite cobbled street. Our room was big, but without air-condition. It was very warm but we had the door open. The breakfast buffet was very good, they even had German champagne.

Stayed here 2 nights while in Bernkastel. This is a very nice boutique location and my room was very nice and comfortable. Did not have a view but no complaints. Breakfast is splendid with everything to choose from. Staff are excellent and pay attention to details. I even tried their pizza one afternoon with a glass of Reisling and it... More
