The restaurant food is fabulous. The best we experienced in the 34 days were were travelling Europe.
Although the hotel is right on the Rhein, it is a bit away from the city of Koblenz. We took a cab from hotel to main train station for 7 Euro, so not that expensive.
The hotel is right beside the Rhein River, the view is really cool and relax but a bit far away from the town center. Rooms are neat and tidy. Staff there are friendly and nice.
The location is a bit remote from the Town Center.
I liked Frau Schmidt and Herr Merkelbach. He was most kind when due to a mistake with my booking I had to find alternative accommodation for the following night. I really enjoyed staying there with the view out over the Rhine and the dining room overlooking the river.
We loved our room with windows that opened up to the Rhein. We loved the convenience of the restaurant, the exceptional seasonal menu, and the friendliness of the staff. We walked into the old city of Koblenz via a lovely path along the river and a quick walk over the bridge It was close to everywhere we wanted to be yet far enough away to be peaceful. Even though we knew very little German, the owner, Claus was most helpful and made our stay that much more enjoyable.
It was a good hotel for our overnight stop over. We enjoyed dinner downstairs in the evening whilst still being able to use the baby monitor. The food and staff (all except one!) were excellent. We would recommend the hotel and plan on returning for a longer break to see more of the town.
We stayed at this hotel only 1 night and really liked it. It’s a bit of a hike from the town centre (about 20 minutes’ walk) but we knew this so we were not bothered; it is located by the Rhine in a quiet area; the weather was nice and having the evening dinner on the terrace overlooking the river was a very pleasant and romantic experience (the food was good as well). The hosts were smiling and the bedroom quite comfortable, we’d stay here again and recommend this hotel especially to couples looking for a romantic weekend / city break.
Nice hotel with great views of the Rhine and also had a fan in the room which is unusual for German hotels.Good hotel for the views and the food only.Also the wait service was very good.
Rated as a 3 star but more of a 2 star hotel.Rooms were outdated and very small.
Lovely situation on the banks of the Rhine. Great staff and the food in the restaurant was excellent. Rooms more than comfortable and very clean
We liked that the hotel was right on the Rhine and just a 25 minute walk from Deutsche Eck and the old town.
The gentleman who was there when we booked in was very nice indeed but the woman who was there on Monday and Tuesday was not at all friendly. After a river cruise, we RAN all the way back to the hotel for dinner and the woman refused to serve us because it was 8:45pm even though the restaurant was open till 9:00pm. She was extremely rude about it and, as a result, I would not consider staying at this hotel again. There are plenty more along the Rhine with, I am sure, a far friendlier staff.
Excellent restaurant at this hotel, we enjoyed our evening meal on the first night also the breakfasts. The rooms were comfortable and we could look out over the Rhein and see the boats go by.
The restaurant is closed after breakfast on a Monday and we were only told about this on Monday morning. The barges are a bit noises during the early hours if you are a light sleeper.
