Well my friend and I thought our luck was in when we booked our two single rooms. The hotel looked fantastic with very good reviews and only the odd negative review concerning the annexe. We arrived and it looked excellent, 3 star rating and very comfortable looking. So to be told we weren't actually staying in the hotel, but the annexe down the street was disappointing to say the least. Even more disappointing was when we received the room keys and entered our rooms. As someone else has said, it looked and felt like a cheap hostel. There we water stains and signs of mould in the (very small) shower. The bed was lumpy and worn, the walls were marked and scuffed, the wooden floor was scuffed, the toilet only stopped flushing when you thumped the mechanism, the shower was impossible, it was either roasted nuts or a brass monkey situation. The WiFi apparently existed but was so slow it took ten minutes to load a Facebook page on my phone. Walking over to the main hotel for breakfast was annoying, especially in the rain, and sitting down to breakfast when already damp is plain uncomfortable.
My room was on the ground floor right against the pavement (sidewalk) and on all three nights someone decided to rap loudly on my shutters. Then at 6am the buses start rumbling along the cobbled street. To be honest I was glad to leave.
If I had booked a hostel this is what I would have expected, but I didn't, I booked a hotel and paid hotel prices. I won't be recommending this hotel, just in case you get the dreaded annexe. And I won't be returning.
The village of Rhens is very picturesque. Although not a large place there are a few shops, several pubs, 2 of which are smoking, 2 kebab shops which is just as well as there is only one restaurant in the village....which is closed on Wednesdays, and 2 supermarkets.
There is easy (but expensive by bus) access to Koblenz and Boppard and a good ferry service.
The hotel manager was friendly and the staff were helpful.
The breakfast was very good. Plenty of choice and as much as you wanted.
