Worthwhile I went to Bachrach from Japan.
Although my daughter and I knew the hotel was right at the train track, we chose a room in the Tower because I love old places: thick and heavy door, high ceiling, wavy looking window glasses, etc make me imagine the life of medieval era. The taste of interior design and decoration is up to each person; you like it or you do not like it.
The noise of the trains was well warned by "Rick Steves'" book; however, it did not disturb us at all. We did not need to use ear plugs at all. We slept very well.
We walked around town, followed the trail to the ruins of towers and walls. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to walk up to the castle with only one night of stay. I believe it depends on you that how you enjoy your stay at anywhere you go.
The hotel owners especially Fatima care about their guests' good experience of staying at their hotel and restaurant. She was very friendly, kind, and pleasant. I did not have chance to talk with her husband.
It must be quite a challenge to keep that old building as a hotel and run it. The room we slept was a good size and high ceiling with clean, updated bathroom, TV set, small refrigerator filled with drinks( not free though:() We had a wonderful stay.
The restaurant foods were good: home cooking style was comforting. The ingredients they use were great.
If you expect modern hotel, chose somewhere else; if you prefer local taste and appreciate to see and feel old places, this hotel is one of a great one. We loved it.
One big unpleasant experience we had in town was not at the hotel: it was the Tourist Information Office. The lady there was no good help; seemed to me that she did not know what the service was. We needed help to know getting to Munich from Bacharach by train: where we should transfer the train, for example. She told us to check it online. She charged us our 10 seconds of using the computer.
