When we arrived at 5:00 p.m. to check in, we were given our room key. We trudged up four floors to the room only to find it hadn't been cleaned. We were then given a room on the first floor. The new owners seemed a little out of their element running such a business. The breakfast didn't look appealing so... More

This quaint castle-like hotel run by a husband and wife team has a more B&B feel than a hotel. Looks medieval because it is. The property was sold during the Winter so the restaurant was not open for dinner yet. But it's a great value and our host cooks an excellent hot breakfast included each morning. Our room was in...

My husband and I booked his hotel for a one-night stay, based on Rick Steves' recommendation. We had a Rhine view room in the tower, with a bay window view of the streets and the castle, and a smaller window that looked out on the Rhine and the train tracks. The room itself was big and comfortable. The bathroom was... More

Visited in July as family based on reviews and Rick steves... But this place has been trashed by the new owners who don't seem to know how to run a first class joint... When I arrived... They couldn't find my reservation and then I dug up the emails... And they agreed to put me up... There are cobwebs, shoes, laundry..... More

We stayed here based on the Rick Steves' review. It was a little different than we expected but overall a great value. When we stayed it was about 100 F outside, so we had to sleep with the windows open (no AC in this part of Germany). The train tracks run about 45 ft from the hotel, so it can... More

We stayed in a high up tower room for one night. We loved the look of the room, it felt like we were in a castle! The room was comfortable and spacious. The wifi was extremely flaky in our room and would often drop out, but it worked well down in the dining area. The included breakfast was fine and... More

Upon arrival the host was cooking for a small number of guests and had no time to check us in, 25 minutes waiting in the lobby. Kind couple running the hotel but at no time did they seem to wish to offer information or even care if our stay was acceptable. Seems as if they are outside of their element.... More

We flew into Frankfurt and drove here with a little jet lag and were able to easily find it and we were warmly welcomed by Mrs. Lee. We slept in the upper tower room and it was spacious, comfortable and quiet. We both slept through any trains going by...the windows and walls are that good! Great shower and breakfast.

We stayed here because Rick Steve's recommended it in his book and we are so happy we did. We met the new owners and they were so welcoming. We especially liked eating our breakfast and drinking our coffee on the patio facing the Rhine River.

We had a great2 night stay with the new owners of this hotel. In the included breakfast they fix bacon, eggs, and sausage which easily makes it the best included breakfast we've had on this vacation. We stayed in the tower room which we really liked, but may not be the best choice if you're not up to 4 flights... More
