Reviewed September 14, 2013

Having read previous reviews, I do think some people expect far too much for what is a very reasonable price. We picked this hotel for proximity to the train station and town, as a stopover point on a train holiday to points further east. We were warmly welcomed, found our rooms comfortable and slept well before departing onward. It is true the rooms are not huge compared to many German hotels but were perfectly adequate and our beds were very comfortable. There is some train noise but it did not bother us. The breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice. We ate in the hotel restaurant in the evening- the service was good, the food was quite adequate for the price.
We wanted a stopover again on our return two weeks later and because of the first good experience decided to book again. We once again had a warm welcome, and the manager immediately agreed to our request for breakfast ten minutes early so we could catch a train. We ate elsewhere on the evening this time for a change. Boppard is a very pleasant, relaxing and compact town on the Rhine, with great views from the waterfront.

Room Tip: If train noise bothers you, ask for a room away from the railway end.

We were on a driving trip through Germany and found ourselves in need of a hotel somewhere between Koblenz and Bingen. The more moderately priced hotels in Koblenz were booked, so we took a minute and looked for hotels in the area. Hotel Sonnenhof popped up on Bookings.com, price was right so we booked it. We drove to Boppard and after navigating the narrow streets with our GPS constantly advising "Recalculating..." we arrived at the hotel about 6 pm. The front desk area was closed but we rang the bell and were promptly and warmly greeted, and given the keys to our room. There was no elevator so we schlepped our bags upstairs to a typical tourist class european hotel, Room neat and clean but small.

The weather at the time was warm, so we opened the window. As our room faced the street the noise from the railway and the clang of the bells at the church made for a noisy night.
All in all very comfortable, met our needs for a place to crash while on the road. We arrived late and left early the next morning for Bingen for a day cruise on the Rhine from Bingen to Koblenz.

We stayed here in Oct. 2010. Our room was pretty small and the bathroom was compact -to say the least. There is a big step up/down into the shower. Bathroom was a bit old fashioned, I would say. The t.v. was on the bedside table, which meant you couldn't really watch it while lying in bed. A lot of stairs to climb to get to our room. However, the breakfasts were very good and the owner, Sylvia, was very pleasant. The hotel is right in the centre and everything can be reached on foot, so you don't need a car. It is close to the railway line, so if your window is open, you will hear the trains.
We dined here one evening and the food was good. There are lots of other good eateries in the town.

Room Tip: Ask to see the rooms first as there will be better ones than we had!

Thanks for the review. As your arriving is now a year ago, I would like to write that the room was completely remodeled in winter 2010/11. We are the owner from hotel sonnenhof since 2007. Every winter we work for remodeling and renovation. Unfortunately, it is both temporally and financially impossible to finish everything at once, so it probably needs a few more years, until everything is to our own satisfaction. In the newly created comfort double room you can see what ideas we want to realize you.

Sincerely,
Sylvia Ullman

We arrived at the hotel at 3:30 PM, and no one was about, so parked the car in P1 (Free). Went back at 5:30 and met Sylvia. Our room was small, clean and very noisy due to the proximity to the railway line (Had to keep the window open due to the heat as small aircon unit was ineffective). However, despite this the comfy bed made for a very good nights sleep. As we had to manhandle the cases up to the 2nd floor via narrow stairs I would not recommend for the less able bodied.

We stayed here for four nights, 2 couples, 2 motorbikes. Friendly, family run hotel, we were immediately given use of a garage. The hotel is clean and comfortable if a little dated and excellent value for money....we paid 60 Euros per room per night B & B. Nicely appointed breakfast room, the buffet breakfast had an excellent selection including bacon and scrambled eggs. The Sonnenhof is a 5 minute walk from the train station, 2 minutes from the town square and 5 mins from the Rhine, so is a great location from which to explore Boppard and Rheinland! Negatives...rooms alittle dated and small but comfortable. Our friends' room was slightly larger, but the bathroom had limited head room as they were in the attic rooms.

Stayed at Hotel Sonnenhof in Boppard along with a couple of friends in early June 2010.

The hotel itself is pleasant and very near the railway station (actually, seeing Boppard's pretty small, everything is convenient!) and just off from the St Severus church. I stayed in a double room which was sizeable and comfy. The bathroom was a little tiny but more than adequate. Bed and pillow were very comfy. Air con was available in the room and much needed given the temperatures while I was there!

Breakfast was a buffet with hot food (bacon, eggs) and traditional German fare (cold meats, cheeses, crackers, etc.). Most tasty!

Only down side was that I booked through Rates 2 Go at one rate and was then contacted to tell me the rate was not valid, which I thought was poor. Between the time I booked to the time I had to confirm at the higher rate other accommodation disappeared and so I was kinda stuck. This seemed to be the hotel's fault rather than Rates 2 Go though, but I was disappointed to have this happen.
