I recently spent two nights at the Alte Thorschenke in early December. I was visiting the area to take in the Christmas markets. The hotel is very historical and interesting in its location and some of its furniture and decorations. It is an easy walk from the train station.... about a 8 min. walk . The lady at the front...

Service was okay, but quality of food was poor, portions were small and vegetables seemed an option. Compared to the prices, the menu doesn't deliver at all. Especially the rumpsteak is to avoid. Never see me again here... Would highly recommandeer restaurant Panorama in Cochem.

We enjoyed staying here very much. If I understand correctly the front half of the building was built in 1300! OK, this is not the Ritz... lots of stairs and warped floors etc. but the perfect atmosphere for visiting one of our favorite oldtowns in Europe. Our room was very clean, simple yes but had a very nice modern bathroom.... More

This is a very charming hotel. The reservation process was very easy and they have a wonderful room with 2 or 3 bedrooms, plenty of room for 5 people. The furnishings are quite old and could be more comfortable, but fine, really. The unfortunate part is the Saturday night loudness at the grill across the street. The noise went on... More

This characterful piece of history dates back to 1322 and transports guests back in time. We cherished every experience - from the narrow wooden spiral staircase that squeaked dangerously under our weight and that of heavy luggage, to the large and very comfortable room from another era filled with antiques and beautiful curtains, to a delightful breakfast served in the...

The Alte Thorschenke in Cochem transports you back in time. Parts of the hotel date from the 1300's. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Our bed was a semi-canopy bed of wood painted with fairy-tale like scenes. The breakfast is a delight, served in a large hunting lodge-themed room. Delicious breads, meats, cheeses, yogurts, juice, eggs and breakfast meat on... More

If you're looking for the Ritz Carlton or even a Best Western, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for an historic hotel in the heart of the old town, with an easy walk to shops, restaurants and wine stores, this is definitely the place for you. The breakfast was very good with a wide selection.... More

We loved this old hotel in a fantastic location. It is so old and I believe part of the old city wall that some of the floors are slanted in some of the rooms, which only adds to the charm of transporting you back in time. It seems to fit with the quaintness of the town........If you want modern hotel... More

As a group of ten friends we stayed for 3 nights for the Cochem winefest. The hotel was perfectly located with fantastic views and in the very centre of Cochem. It was a little expensive but well worth the money and I wouldn't hesitate to book it again. The rooms were typically plain but very clean and extremely comfortable. Breakfast... More
