We payed practically half the cost of what you would pay at one of the Europa Park theme hotels for a family room. Our spotless, 2 room family room (could sleep 6) was spacious and comfortable with an added bonus of an enclosed shower with strong water jets. Although lacking charm, it was all we needed as we were at the park all day.

However, our hosts couldn't be more charming and friendly. Their breakfast buffet was fantastic. With on-site free parking and a 5 minute walk to the Europa Park entrance, what more could a family want?

Dinner options in lovely Rust are many! I would recommend the restaurant down by the river. Outdoor seating and friendly staff made it a great end to the day.

WE were 5 person family and received apartment with small kitchen. As interior very basic but sterile cleanliness and very good breakfast stole our hearts. If you add central location, walking distance to Park it is highly recommended place to stay.

Given that we booked late and that the park hotels were either v. pricey or sold-out we went via Trip Advisor and looked for other choices in Rust - and were very pleased with the Kosel.

c. 5 mins walk from the main gate and with on-site parking meant a good location and family room was as on the website (with bunk beds for the children) + nice balcony and table/chairs outside. No aircon, but windows could be opened and we were so tired after the park that sleeping was not an issue. Bathroom small but well laid out and decorated. Free wireless, via the local provider.

Breakfast had a good selection of breads/meats/cheeses etc and even though we were late down, could hang around some way after 'closing'.

The owners - and especially Mrs Kosel - very welcoming and helpful and with perfect English, so a pleasure to stay there; also very helpful with recommendations as to where to have dinner in the town (better than in the park).

Basically, a good option if you can't get into the park hotels/prices too high.

We were very impressed by the all round good standard of this hotel. The staff were very welcoming and looked after us very well. We stayed in a 2 bed family room which was very clean and had most of the amenities you would need although I suggested they might consider adding a microwave to the kitchenette and a DVD player so they younger kids could watch cartoons whilst adults get ready for the parks or dinner. Breakfast was very good and they had a neat idea of having your family name reserving your table which made us feel a bit special. Very convenient for Europa Park (5 mins walk) and good supermarkets and restaurants close by. All in all a big thumbs up to the Kosel's.

We stayed 2 nights in Hotel Kosel, very convenient location, five minutes walk from Europa Park.

Room fits the purpose very well, clean and nice.

Breakfast was nice with good selection of cheese, cold cut and bread, etc.

Hotel manager spoke very good English, very friendly and also able to recommend very nice place to dine.

Free car parking within the hotel proximity and free internet access.

Hotel Kosel is located very close (5 mins walking) to the Europapark themepark in Rust Germany. The themepark is the only reason you should visit Rust. The hotel is very little, only 12 rooms. We booked and got a double bed room. The room was little but well equiped with A/C and a good bathroom. The room and the beds were small. The pilows were very hard and because of this I didn't sleep well in the 2 nights I stayed here. Breakfast is very basic and the breakfast room is very warm.

It is not a place were you want to spend more then a couple of days. I believe there are better options in Rust. Prices are hotel like but atmospere and services are more pension like.
