The hotel is located near the train station, on easy walking distance from the city Centre (market square, Felsenkirche). We had a spacious room, in the 'tower' on the street side. Very nice bathroom, modern interior. Friendly staff. Good value! We parked the motorcycles in front of the hotel.

We enjoyed our stay. The staff and hotel are welcoming. The breakfast felt like home it was cosy and had a nice selection. Our room was spacious and clean. The host gave us great dinner advice and parking was close. Within walking distance of the old historic downtown.

Don't expect anything fancy, but you will definitely get your money's worth. What this old hotel lacks in modern décor and amenities is made up for by Peter, the owner. He met me at the door after hours and made sure everything was OK - including that I had found a suitable parking place. The room was large and clean.... More

The breakfast was pretty ok, one could even choose to have warm... More

We wanted to see Idar-Oberstein at least once. They have several attractions and a deep history in mining agar and other stones. We chose the City Hotel because of the reviews and the fair price. We arrived and we were greeted by the owner. He informed us right away about the mine tour and the stone grinding museum. We were... More

I showed up a day early, having booked my stay on the wrong day. The manager couldn't have been kinder. My assigned room on the first floor overlooking the street was really clean and comfortable. The bathroom was modern and the WiFi was free. The hotel is a few minutes walk to the train station and a great pedestrian mall... More

A beautiful, immaculate hotel renovated to retain the charm and elegance of the original style. A friendly, helpful host and excellent breakfast with eggs made to your preference. Just steps from the main shopping area and tourist sights.
