I read the good reviews on Trip Advisor; so, I went ahead and called the hotel to book. I was in Germany for a wedding, and had just been to Greece for 2 weeks. I stayed in 2 hotels in Athens, and 3 in the Kastellaun/St Goar area. This was hands down my favorite place to stay. If I'm back in the area, I will absolutely be staying here again.
Location: Set at the end of a cobblestone street with shops, just a 2-minute walk to the center of town. It's also right next to the castle; so, you can walk out the door and up the drive to explore that.
Room: I had a single room that probably could have passed fora double room in other European hotels, where rooms tend to be smaller. It was clean, comfortable, and cozy. I liked being in it.
The hotel / bed&breakfast: What a great place. Feels more like a home than a hotel. And it has a nice little beer garden off to the side. The restaurant area is cozy and inviting. You may decide to stay and eat dinner here a few nights. The breakfast every morning was wonderful. Heike (one of the owners) asked every morning if I wanted eggs, tea, etc. in addition to the delicious food already laid out.
The owners: The Krons are amazing. Incredibly nice and helpful people. This is a big part of what makes the hotel so great. And for someone who speaks practically no German, their fluency in English made things very easy. My plane got in late and I got a little turned around (read: lost) driving out from the airport in the dark and rain. I arrived at the hotel at midnight, and they made sure I got in and had everything I needed, even though it was clear they had been in bed (most places don't have someone at the front desk at all hours). A few days later, they helped me figure out things like where to recharge my cell phone SIM card and ho to find places in town. Contrast this with a place down the street some family wanted to eat at. They didn't speak any English; so, lunch was an interesting adventure (although you can usually figure things out together).
I rarely write reviews of places i stay, but I so enjoyed this place and these people that I felt compelled to write.
