We booked this place for 3 nights in August 2015 based on Rick Steve's' recommendation. It was terrible. The new owners had given away our room and had to put us in a room downstairs. The place is dirty, and we had to keep reminding them to clean the room and provide new towels. The kitchen is only open for... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Bacharach and big part of that experience was because of our stay at Hotel Kranenturm. The view from our tower room we could see the Rhine on one side and the castle and the city on the other! Pay the little extra. Our kids (18 each) stayed on the river side and enjoyed that... More

I booked this hotel because of the great review over a year ago. But then the hotel got sold to new owners. A day or two prior to our arrival I checked review again and they were all bad. When we arrived I saw why. Half the lights in the hallways were out. Dark, dinge, musty smell. Restaurant was closed.... More

We chose to stay here on the advice of all the Rick Steves reading I had been doing, and it didn't disappoint! A quaint medieval place built within the wall of the city! Our room was extremely clean-nothing at all fancy. If you're looking for sleek and modern, this isn't the place for you. The breakfast in the morning was... More

Mrs. Lee and Mr. Ro were extremely nice and accommodating, but the noise from the trains, even when we were on the town side, interfered with our sleep. The breakfast was slightly better than average, and the room was extremely tight. The owners had just bought the place in April, and I wish I could give the overall experience a... More

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
