“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

A clean, very affordable hotel with great views of the Rhine and a very good restaurant. The breakfast makes lunch superfluous. The Family Marx really know how to provide a wonderful experience and gave us good advice on train schedules, tickets and the abundance of hiking trails in the area.
In my case, Herr Marx went above and beyond this hospitality. During a cycling trip, I fell and opened a nasty gash on my forehead. Herr Marx transported me to and from the Hospital in Oberwiesal and did much of the translating for the Doctor and her assistant while the wound was cleaned, treated and stitched. I cannot say enough about his generosity toward me.

We stayed in a double room with a panoramic view over the busy Rhine River and Burg Katz. The room was spacious, and the bathroom also quite roomy. Everything was clean... however - a word of warning to close your window along the front (we were right along the neon sign) in the night or you will be invaded by those little flys - we call them 'nossiums'. It would have been nice to have been pre-warned of this! After we figured that out, there were no more invasions! Other than that, we really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast - the hotel owners go out of their way to make sure you have fresh poured coffee or tea with breakfast. We asked for hot water the first night there because I like herbal tea at bedtime and we got a whole carafe of boiling water! Great little hotel with excellent service and location couldn't be more perfect! The town is fun to explore and even a few sights right at your doorstep!

Room Tip: Awesome Italian restaurant called, 'Ristorante Pizzeria' just down a little side street from...

This little hotel is is a wonderful location by the Rhine River. We had a great view of the river from our room. We found the town to be much quieter and cheaper than the previous stops we had had throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The staff could not have been more helpful. They helped us get train tickets and tried to print our boarding passes for our flight home. They were very accommodating throughout our stay.

In an expensive and tourist-riddled part of Germany, this hotel in Saint Goar was a relief to find. After cruising around Boppard in the wet, we had found it full of over-priced hotels or cheaper ones already booked. So after a brief try for rooms in Bad Salzig, we ended up in Sankt Goar (the Tom-Tom only knows Sankt Goar and not St Goar).
Hotel Am Markt is in a perfect location in this delightful little town; right beside the church with the historic Stumm organ too.
We were able to park our car in the garage underneath for 4 euros a night, and the owner very patiently helped guide us past the stacked bikes and other bits and bats. Our room was two flights up (no lift) but the helpful owner helped with one of the bags. Our room was light, slightly more spacious than others and clean. It was noticeable that this hotel has been cutting corners. Soap dispenser empty and the liquid soap on the basin in a crème soap container had been watered down so much that it was impossible to use as soap. Towels were automatically not replaced which didn't bother us for our short 2 night stay but had we stayed longer I would have asked for a replacement. Small details such as carefully rationed breakfasts; Germans usually make breakfast a cornucopia of bread, cheese and meat delights but the breakfasts here were almost grudgingly rationed out - even to the glasses of orange juice put on each table, rather than as available from a jug on the buffet.
On balance, our overall trip to St Goar was a great pleasure, and the hotel am Markt a well-situated place to rest afterwards. Perhaps it was the very wet season or economic times but the hotel did seem very tired and in need of a bit of lift. Or a lift for the bags ?!? :-)

Room Tip: The front rooms have a view to the Rhein but the side rooms are perhaps a little quieter? And if you...

We stayed there 3 years ago. When we returned recently, Heiko recognized me--"you were here 3 years ago!". Then as now, the service was super, the rooms were clean, the restaurant had great German meals at great prices. Heiko took the time to help us with train recommendations. We told him that we wanted to sample different local wines--and German Schnapps--he set us up for them, with explanations for each. His explanations and thoughtfullness helped give us a good understanding of the local area. The hotel is located only a block downhill from the train station (take the shortcut alongside the church to their front door) and right alongside the ferry. This is hands down the best value we've ever had in Germany!

Room Tip: Even if you cant STAY here, consider EATING here--as mentioned, the meals are good, priced right, an...

We have just returned from our third stay at the hotel. Always great to stay there. Fantastic hotel and restaurant. Great food and staff very helpful. Over the last 5 years, the standard at the hotel has never changed.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room - lovely views over the Rhine

We enjoyed Hotel am Markt immensely, Heiko the waiter stopped us at the back door on our way in, we had just arrived from Paris. We , should I say I, was confused and he made me laugh which is what I needed.

The rooms were great, we had two, one for us, one for our daughters. Beds were very comfortable and I am 6'7" tall.
Food was the best we had in Germany bar-none.

When we go back to Germany this will be the first place we go!

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the river, we had a great view!
