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

This is a fabulous place to stay. It was another great Rick Steves recommendation with quaint German charm. The hosts are gracious and go the extra mile to ensure you feel at home. Great breakfast. Easy running path along the Rhine river. Hike around town and up to the grape vines, cathedral ruins and castle. In summary: cute, cute, cute!

This hotel is the real deal. I have stayed several times and make a point in my travels to stay in Bacharach when traveling through Germany. This time my wife and I traveled with our college aged son and they made special accommodations for a triple room in a historical tower! This hotel is owner operated, Fatima and Kurt are... More

Hotel Kranenturm is more like a bed and breakfast rather than a hotel. It is located in a historic building with a view of the Rhine River. Parking just outside the city wall was not an issue at all. As noted before, there are steep stairs to navigate inside the hotel, but we expected as much in this location. We... More

This hotel is 800 years old so there are limitations on plumbing and other upgrades, but the pink and blue rooms are just not attractive. The furniture is miss matched and the Internet was turned off in the mornings.. The town is charming and the food and bar area are very nice.. I would return to this hotel for the... More

We stayed there in October 2012. Fatima was a perfect host. Rooms were clean and reasonably priced. Great views of the Rhine. The food was terrific too. We loved the trout. Despite being near the train tracks, the noise was not bothersome. We were still able to get a good night's rest.
