“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2009

The hotel and room are exactly what you can see on their web site. The bath room we had is very big.
The room a double door, but with no efficacity, because the sound of the stair go thru the door to our room.
The wall are also no correctly insulated because we hearded our 2 German neighbourgs (or they were speaking wery high).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2009

We stayed here for two nights in early May. We found this place absolutely charming. The staff very eager to please and accommodating. We stayed in a tower room which appears to be the same one pictured on the website. It was quite spacious with a sitting room and large bathroom (shower only) with double sinks and adequate towels. Nothing was shabby, well-worn, or past its prime. The Hotel staff seemed apologetic that there is no mini-bar. This was not a problem for us as we never use them anyway. They supplied a bottle of water which was carbonated, but I never developed a taste for room temperature carbonated water. There is free parking in the courtyard in front of the hotel. The hotel offers a complimentary "welcome" glass of wine which we took on the vine covered terrace in the front courtyard. There is also a restaurant but we didnt eat in the hotel except for the breakfast buffet (included in the price). The breakfast included soft boiled eggs, cold cuts, some cheese, assorted cereals, yogurts, breads, all sorts of jams, juices, fruit and coffee or tea.

The only thing I missed is bathroom amenities. There were no cute soaps, nothing. They had a body wash dispenser in the shower. No bathrobe. In other words, there were no frilly extras that put it over the top.

We found Zell a friendly, quiet, central Mosel location. We ad considered staying inCochem but so glad we ended up picking Zell as Cochem was a not very interesting tourist trap that was overflowing with elderly European tourists. Very few Americans in Europe this year. We would definitely go back to Zell and stay at Schloss Zell.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2008

Stayed in this Hotel for a weekend in July while driving up the Mosel River. First, the area is incredible. Castles, great scenery, incredible wineries, and very friendly people. The Hotel provides a good base to visit the small towns in the area & Castle Eltz, one of the better preserved castles on the Mosel.
The town of Zell (Mosel) is a great little town. We were there during a Festival (Long Branch?) where all of the wineries in the area had a wine tasting on the main street. Very cool...
The Hotel is actually a converted palace from the mid 1200's. It has 3 types of rooms. All have antique funiture, vaulted ceilings, complete baths, and are very clean. The Tower rooms, however are the best for 1-or 2 people. Very much the '13th Century' feel... They also have an 'apartment'... not an apartment really, but has sleeping for 6 including a queen in its own bedroom, a sleeping area, and a loft with room for 4. Perfect for families. We had a tower room - and the family travelling with us took the 'apartment'. The room cost includes breakfast.
The owner is very friendly & helpful (and speaks very good English). The restaurant is also very good...

  • Liked — The atmosphere... very unique
