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

Weekend in Idar-Oberstein, one night in this Hotel. It is an pretty old hotel, needs refurbishing but it was very clean. The room was big enough, the bathroom with a shower and a little beauty kit (not much). We had a very good night sleep, beds were comfortable. 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

Wonderful hotel, quite location, close to railway station. The hotel is over 100 years old but had be refurbished in the 70s. Check in should be after 4 pm as they do not a 24 hour reception. Large spacious warm room, with ample power points to charge all the devices. Owner is also the chef and a breakfast is available... 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.

lovely "hotel garni" (rooms with bed and breakfast) in the center of oberstein; large rooms (36 m²) with king size beds,private bathroom, excellent breakfast and an owner that is really happy to help his guests; perfect suggestion to visit Herrstein and to stay for dinner in the only restaurant of the town

This place is in Idar Oberstein and for the price is a great value you could get in the country side in Germany. The rooms are large with old photographs, clean and matresses are comfortable. The owners have also spent a certain effort to make the rooms look nice and not dull (as it is often the case in Germany).... More

This hotel does not reserve any price in loveliness, specialities etc. But, it is very nicely low-budget, with an enormous room all for myself, television, radio, spacious bathroom, space to put my luggage. The breakfast is no-nonsense, too. One can fill one's stomach for hours to come. Coffee/tea, boiled eggs or fried/scrambled, jams, cheeses, ham/salami etc. slices, yogurth, juices, cereals.... More
