Stayed at the Pinger for three nights last week on a Treyn Holidays Railways of the Rhine break, which was in itself a great trip, four retired professionals on the `boys` weekend away.
The hotel is literally twenty steps from the railway station so no problem with dragging your luggage around the town! The small town centre with several pleasant small shops, supermarket, etc is also just round the corner, and the Rhine promenade with a few restaurants and bars 2/300 yards away, five minutes walk. Remagen itself is a pleasant town and the hotel is a good base for visiting the Rhine. There has been some critisism about train noise, but our room 111 at the back was absolutely fine even with the window open, just the background sound of the odd overnight freighter passing through, so no worries there.
A three star hotel which was better than we expected, very clean throughout, very attentive service as soon as you walk through the door, functional bedrooms with free Wifi, BBC1 news, clean, very comfortable beds with nice white sheets and duvet. Bathroom with shower, plenty of hot water, nice towels and top quality toilet paper!
Dinner at night was varied with limited choice but nicely cooked decent fare by a cook rather than a chef, but absolutely no complaints at all. Likewise continental breakfast was good, meats, cheese, cereals, scrambled and boiled egg, hot croissants and decent coffee. Staff were very attentive at all times and very pleasant with good English spoken.
I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel at all, and would happily go again. I cannot understand some reviewers critisising the place relating to certain things - no toiletries is the room, no fresh fruit, etc - it is a three star hotel not the Ritz!
