    WiFi in rooms practically unavailable, children found a place in the corridor, from where it was possible to connect. Coffee during the breakfast - not from the coffee machine but served in a thermos. Tram line between the hotel and the river.

    Location at the beautiful bank of Rhein river, easy to access, friendly staff, spacious rooms (not of the modern design), available good coffee from coffee machine (however payable). Parking was available on the street, however during the day payable.

    Rooms were a little dated and the curtains did not keep out the lights from the boat area and public square, these are on all night. Getting luggage to and from the car park is not simple and pushchair/wheelchair access I would personally avoid

    Location in Königswinter was excellent and staff were friendly and helpful. Onsite parking in that area is a real bonus. Breakfast was good but not an extensive choice. What is on offer is good.

    customer service was abominable.

    • Comfort Single Room
    • Stayed 1 night

    customer service was abominable. retaining international guests at check out because their credit card was supposedly not working instead of asking for another form of payment. And the guest had to call me (because i booked the hotel) instead of the hotel calling me directly (if the problem was that they could not communicate that they needed a different means of payment). Contradicting Booking.com policy by charging for rooms that had been canceled without Booking.com having confirmed this. The whole experience was regrettable and I would not recommend such a hotel for international travelers. Equally Im in doubt as to what role Booking.com chooses to play by not interfering and stopping the hotel from disregarding its own cancellation policy.

When the client tell you "thank you" its nice to answer back 2. When the client speak to you look at the client not at the computer Im in the bussines too and a smile goes long way !

    Nothing in particular. All went smoothly for us. We did notice for another traveller, that the after hours checkin was a bit dis-organised. There should probably be someone reliably on call at hours up to 10pm at least.

    The Wi-Fi does only work in the reception area which is very cold in the winter. I gave in my key when I left in the morning without considering that I would only return after the reception had closed. Nobody answered the phone (there is a note outside with a number to call), and I had to walk around the town in pouring rain to find a place to sleep. I was lucky and found a hotel with an empty room. Next morning I went back for a shower, breakfast and to pick up my luggage. The receptionist did not speak English so I couldn't explain what happened. Remember your key!

    Though the Drachenfels/Bayunah is probably the best-value hotel in the vicinity, it is still slightly too expensive to be what I would consider "value for money". The lack of good hotels in this area increases prices and reduces value.

    From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we felt like we had stayed within a family home - the owners were so keen to ensure that we were comfortable at that everything was ok. The hotel is well located for day trips to Bonn, Koln, Koblenz, and Phantasialand. Staff were easy going and helpful - we had a lovely breakfast every day, as well as a late night cuppa after our long days out.
