“Friendly, interesting and good value.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2010

The manager was friendly and attentive. Our breakfast table was ready when we came down in the morning including a pot of coffee since that was our preference. The hotel is convenient to walking onto the city wall or walking a short block to the High street near plenty of cafe's and restaurants. The building is very old but the windows are new double paned, the shower worked well and for en suite the price was very good. The rooms front do face the train tracks and include ear plugs and a small fan. Remember to ask for the back rooms but even though we forgot, it didn't seem to bother us that much and we slept well. The room included a TV which seems irrelevant since Bacharach is not a place to waste watching TV. Besides the train, we could see the boat traffic on the Rhine quite well. There is no internet but again there are better things to do.

Hotel Hillen in Bacharach is a nice place to stay. The room was comfortable with a reasonable bathroom with shower. The decor is a little unfortunate, but nothing horrible. Breakfast was very nice. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Our family of six stayed at Hotel Hillen in May 2009. Iris, the owner, is very frendly and eager to please. She fixes a great breakfast of meat, cheese, hard boiled eggs, bread, juice and coffee. Iris is happy to serve you and even gives you seconds.

The rooms are frayed around the edges. The bed linnens and pillows are a little thin. I think that they turn off the hot water heaters after noon because we did not have any hot water at night. The hotel is right next to the train track, but the windows seem to block out most of the sound.

We used Bacharach as a base to see the Rhine castles. We rented bikes from the hotel and biked to Rheinstein Castle and Rheinfels Castle.

We liked the price (50 Euros per double room).

The bottom line is Hotel Hillen is a good value with a sweet owner and a great breakfast. The rooms are not super comfortable and need an update. Stay here if you are on a budget and don't expect to spend much time in your room.

Clean, comfortable, spacious room. Our room faced the train tracks, but with the window closed, the sound did not bother us. Hotel staff was very nice and were accommodating of our late check in around 11pm. Delicious breakfast of breads, cheese, meat, hard boiled eggs, coffee and juice. Wonderful place for an overnight stay.

We found this lovely little hotel in Rick Steve's travel books. Even though it is located next to the busy train tracks and the decor a bit dated the rooms located in the back were quiet and comforatble and overlooked a quaint cobblestone street. Bacharach is a quiet, sleepy (apart from the trains) little village along the Rhine. Breakfast was included and the Hotel rented bikes at a reduced cost to guests. The innkeeper even provided us a bagged breakfast to take on the train when we told her we'd be leaving early in the morning.
