This hotel is situation along the famous narrow alleyway and hosts an evening live music gathering (German/American/sing along) for all the guests, locals and tourists who stroll the lane every night until midnight. It's wholesome fun (not rowdy) and wasn't a problem for us as we just opened our balcony door and enjoyed it. But it would be quite intrusive if you wanted quiet or an early bedtime, be sure to ask for a quiet room away from the restaurant courtyard. The bed was okay and the wi-fi requires a log-in each time you want to use it, so those didn't get the perfect scores of the other features. Still, this is the place to be!
First of all, this was the warmest reception we received (champagne, big smiles, and lots of instructions) in a 3 month tour through 12 European countries. Suzanne, the owner/manager, has an efficient style but filled with heart. There is a bouquet of charming details in every hotel space, even the public bathrooms. I don't know about all the rooms, but there are some modern ones and at least one VERY modern one which my husband and I enjoyed, which was huge and almost like a NYC loft. It's hard to imagine a Rudesheim am Rhine hotel with a better location, hospitality or food than this charmer. Don't miss the cable car, high vineyard walk (1.5 hours of mostly flat and a little downhill) with fabulous views over the vineyards and the river, and the boat ride return. We were told that both sets of tickets are provided complimentary to all guests. A real highlight of the area!
