PLEASE READ ENTIRE REVIEW: I had a reservation to stay at another hotel in Bacharach (which will remain nameless for this review) and when I arrived at night from the train the owner of the other hotel said "I am sick...my hotel is closed and you cannot stay here". With nowhere to go I went to Hotel Kranenturm and told... More

I recently stayed at Hotel Kranenturm on a trip through Germany in Winter. At first, I wasn't sure that I was in the correct place, as I was using the 2015 Rick Steve's Germany book and it listed a different owner than the current one. It turns out that the new owner and his wife took over in January 2015,... More

Although it is an older hotel, our bedroom was nicely sized and had a wardrobe to hold our clothing. The bath was also decently sized. The foods served for breakfast were more than adequate and our dinner of chicken and spaetzle was very good. I did not find the trains bothersome.

We stayed at this hotel one night and was very good and very cozy. It is in a 13th century fortress tower. The rooms were very clean, modern bathroom and excellent breakfast. The manager Mr. Lee and his wife were very gracious hosts. Mr. Lee carried our luggage all the way up to the room (three flights), as there is... More

We stayed at this hotel during a cycle tour along Rhine river. The room in the roof was very romantic and charming with a great view of the river. Hosts were very kind. We got the last room left, because they had a group but were very well attended to.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The owners went out of their way to help us after a mix-up with our room reservation. When the wifi in our room was poor they had a router installed the next morning to correct it. The hotel is located in the center of Bacharach so it makes sightseeing easy. We didn't... More

I really wish a star rating of ZERO was possible, I'd gladly give it to this place. All was going great BEFORE they insisted we didn't pay and were charged TWICE. We had a train to catch thus couldn't sit there and dispute the issue. We showed them our cleared credit card transaction charge and still they insisted we didn't... More

I was very excited to see this hotel when we arrived, historical speaking awesome! Then the train came sailing by at 60 miles an hour. I mean with in a few feet of the place, it was so nosy we had to walk to the other side of the building to talk. The manger walked me to my room up... More

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 teens) stayed for one night in this hotel based on Rick Steve's recommendation. Things have changed a bit. The new owners were very helpful, storing out luggage all day while we took a boat up the Rhine. But we were disappointed that the restaurant had closed, except for breakfast (we had to leave...

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
