We spent 3 nights at the Rhein Hotel in early May with glorious weather. I requested a room facing away from the railroad tracks, but after staying there found this was totally unnecessary and next time would opt for room facing the river. Sounds from the trains can be heard even in our room facing away from the tracks, but the trains that pass by are infrequent and pass by quickly, so our sleep was never really interrupted.
This hotel is in a very old building, full of charm. The rooms are small by American standards, but about normal by European standards. The bathrooms are tiny, but functional.
The hotel location is an easy walk from the train station, and almost right next to the KD Rhine Cruise dock. It’s located on the old city wall surrounding Bacharach, and has a great view of the Rhine.
What makes this hotel stand out is the staff and the owners – the Stuber family. Herr Stuber is a wonderful chef, and even if you don’t stay here, his restaurant is worth a splurge dinner in Bacharach. His delicious regional cuisine is great, and the breakfast is one of the best I’ve had in Germany in the 30 years I’ve been going there.
This is the place to stay on the Rhine if you are a celiac or have any kind of gluten intolerance. It’s very hard to find gluten free food in Germany, but Herr Stuber has a gluten free menu, and went out of his way to buy gluten free bread and musli for my wife during our stay. He was gracious and helpful.
