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

We were the visitors just after lawrenceuwg (See his "Memorable experience" review) . Suk , the new owner, was eager to make our stay a comfortable one. We were given the pick of rooms, and chose one with views of a castle, on one side, and the Rhine on the other. Suk cooked us a big breakfast each morning, (included... More

This was a charming hotel and exceeded our expectations. We traveled with 2 kids ages 7 and 12 and Fatima was so accommodating - even buying chocolates for the girls before we headed out to look at castle ruins. Being far away from home and having travelled almost 2 weeks across Europe - it was such a nice way to... More

Bacharach is such a lovely town. Fatima and her husband are such great hosts. The food at the restaurant is amazing. My mother and I loved the old charm of the hotel. The rooms were excellent and the beds were so comfortable. The hotel is in a perfect location. Fatima was really nice and helped my mother and I plan... More

Oh my gosh were we in for a surprise! The owners since 1982 were retiring. The sale of the hotel was the day we left. We paid the new owner the first money they ever made on the place. Delightful German couple who relocated from Korea many years ago. This is their dream to own the "Crane Tower" Hotel. We... More

This was the cutest place we've stayed in Germany! The hots were wonderful. Fatima is one of the kindest women I've ever met! The rooms were VERY clean, and the bathrooms were very nice. The beds and linens were very nice and super comfortable too. She has a unique way of decorating each room differently. She made sure we were... More

Quite possibly the best small town hotel I've ever stayed in... We were greeted by the wonderful hostess, Fatima, who immediately welcomed us in as if we were family. She sat us down at the restaurant and poured us all (8 people) a glass of her best local wine while she gave us a brief overview of the hotel and... More
