Best basic choice for people wanting to have a base in Munnar new city as it is located on a hill away from hustle and bustle of the town. Wifi + Hot water + tv facilities all included.

Staff was really helpful and amazing and willingly arranged food pickups for us. They also get a chargeable tour of Munnar city arranged if required.

However, for people visiting Munnar most private resorts with a picturesque view and are located out of the Munnar city.

Room Tip: TIP: It is a typical homestay with three rooms. For travellers planning to stay in the future, th...

We were three families and stayed here for three nights from 10-Nov-12. We loved the cleanliness, specially the spic washrooms (we badly needed this as we had kids). This is right in the heart of the town but convinently away from its noise and buzz on a small hillock. The hosts were warm and friendly and Mr. Shibu (caretaker) really helped us whenever required. The only minus is no car park in campus(ample parking was provided 100 meteres away) but that was a very small concern considering the whole package.
Overall, every member of the group was happy we found this. I'm sure when we return to Munnar, it will be Rheinberg again.

Room Tip: The woodly furnish room has fantastic views, though a little smaller I would choose this over others...

This is a long pending review, glad I got the time to post it now.

My wife and I headed to Munnar to call in our first wedding anniversary. We stayed at Rheinberg for the first 2 nights and the owner Sherin was very hospitable. The rooms were nice for that price with all amenities required (Wi-Fi, hot water and food would be arranged on request).

The proximity to the town plus the view makes it an ideal location, unlike the other places with better view which are located far from town.

But if you are looking for a private time with more picturesque and quieter locales renowned in Munnar, this is not the place to be.

Overall, it was a very good experience from Sherin and team.

We felt well at Rheinberg. The location could not be better, just a few minutes go into the city with extremly easy access to the countryside and the tea plantations. The rooms were very clean and had all the facilities we could need. Thank you for the comfortable stay

Room Tip: We stayed in Bamboo room which was big and clean

If you want to stay right in town, this is a nice spot as it is above the hustle and bustle on a hill. But it was still too noisy for me and for the price it was the most basic accomodation I stayed in.

Thanks for your review, a review worth a lot for us no matter negative or positive.
Sorry we didn’t understand what you mean by basic. Free Wi-Fi, Digital TV channels, 24 hr hot water and all above neat and clean rooms, you got all these for just Rs 900/day.
We are not saying that we are situated at a silent valley, but if you check our other reviews, it clearly says how calm and quiet is our location.
We try our best to give people who stay at our place a good and exciting time. We also know that it’s impossible to make everybody happy. (But trying hardly for it)

Very Neat & Clean Rooms. Silent Location with a small garden. And very close to City. We spent here 1 day and 1 Night with family. Rheinburg is not a 100% home stay but a nice place to stay. I highly recommend this hotel to any one who wants comfortable and cheap staying .

Nice homestay , Room was good, Nice garden. We stayed during first week of oct 12 with our 2 year old kid. We faced problem for food since Rheinberg Homestay doesn't provide food( Both breakfast & dinner). Going out with 2 year kid to restaurant (which was over crowded) was really very problematic. We have asked the room boy to get breakfast from outside, but it was not good.

Overall if we ignore the food issues, it was nice experience.
