My wife and I stayed at Hotel Restaurant Kranenturm for four nights May 16 – 20, 2012 and enjoyed every minute, the hostess, Fatima, was happy to make our stay pleasant. From the first moment we were welcomed and we knew that our stay was appreciated. Throughout Fatima was very helpful, with site seeing recommendations that fit our personal interests,... More

All of the other reviews say it all: the town, the hotel and Fatima are all wonderful. English-speaking Fatima welcomes you warmly and makes you feel at home. She and her husband Kurt have lovingly created a warm, cozy, well-appointed, updated, yet historic hotel. We have stayed at another hotel in town and the Hotel Kranenturm is the best, by... More

This review is for the restaurant only. We stayed elsewhere in town. Fatima was so funny and very friendly. She took this picture! It had been a very long day including a train ride from Paris, that we almost missed, and a long drive where we got lost several times so we desperately needed a place to chill out and... More

My wife and I spent 2 weeks touring Germany in February of this year. Looking back on our trip, the Hotel Kranenturm was our most charming and pleasant hotel stay. We were Fatima's first guests in 2012 and she was so grateful of our visit that she gave us our choice of rooms in the hotel! Fatima is a fantastic... More

We found Hotel Kranenturm through both Rick Steves and Tripadvisor. We are so happy with our decision to stay here! We walked from the train station rolling our luggage over the cobblestone streets of town. Fatima greeted us warmly and because she had an extra room that night gave us a choice between the one we booked and another. We... More

My friend and I spent a night at Fatima's lovely hotel in October. Hotel location is within walking distance of the train station as well as the KD cruise station. The town of Bacharach was so beatiful! It was a very unique experience spending a night in this old building which is a part of the castle wall. Fatima chose... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, being made feel comfortable and at home with Fatima's generous and caring attention and lovely setting. I noticed some reviews were not happy with the close proximity of the trains to the building, but I didn't really notice them because I walked a lot around the beautiful town and environs of Bacharach and went...

We have just returned home from Hotel Kranenturm in Bacharach. We had a family room in the tower. This was our third visit but not our last. Fatima and Kurt are excellent hosts. They made us feel very welcome and lavished lots of fuss on our little girl. The hotel is unpretentious, comfortable, welcoming, very clean and very convenient. There... More

My wife and I were fortunate enough to stay in the castle portion of this hotel. The entire hotel was as beautiful as the town. The Lady that runs the hotel is extremely helpful as well as entertaining. My wife and I just mentioned that we like liverwurst and the next day at breakfast she brought out a plate of... More
