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

Nice and authentic hotel and a friendly service. Nice rooms and very clean! Breakfast is very good! Hotel is located in the middle of the old city and a private parkingplace for the Märchenhotel guests.

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. Member of staff and management very good and helpful especially Liam from Wales. We took our owe fan as there was no air conditioning and was... More

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

We again enjoyed our second stay in this very nice and cosy hotel. Last time it was in the room "Träume Der Nacht" and now in "Schneeköningin". Again the diner and breakfast was very good + the staff are so friendly. We shall certainly be back. Little remark for the kitchen ; wait a little bit longer between courses when... More

Well this is a rather curious place. We've traveled all over Europe and this certainly is one of the most unusual places we've stayed in. It reminds us of a somewhat eccentric English country pub, with fine dining, but transformed into small town Mosel Plus points: The chef is excellent and food is very good indeed; fine dining service It...

2 weeks ago i stayed at the märchenhotel with my boyfriend. We booked a room for a long weekend. We got a room called Max und Moritz. We didn't know this fairytale because we live in the Netherlands, but it didn't bother. The room was big and looked great! The only thing i would have liked, was a bath. The... More

For all those who are romantic at heart, a stay at the Märchenhotel in Bernkastel is an absolute must. The entire Mosel region is simply lovely and great for hiking or cycling. They even offer classes, which we took advantage of during our vacation. We opted to stay in the Moselprinz (Mosel prince) room which truly made us feel like... More
