“I don't understand this hotel, but in a good way”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

Average Germans hate average German things, and the Drosselgasse in Rüdesheim is a byword for fake, "Disneyfied" tourism, a Potemkin-village lane for the worst of busloads of international visitors who think that the pseudo-gemütliche stage decorations of the restaurants, overpriced alc and convenience food, and Polish musicians playing oompah polkas have anything to do with being German. (It actually does, but never mind.) In the very middle of this tiny, narrow lane that attracts 3,000,000+ visitors a year (!), this hotel however is an extremely service-oriented, stylish hotel with overly modern, even artsy rooms and all kinds of great features. I am not sure who the target customers are (who wants to sleep in a steel-welded bed literally three meters from the Drosselgasse?!), but there it is.

But our experience may not be representative: In February, Rüdesheim is absolutely dead (except for Valentine's), and the Drosselgasse is literally shuttered up; not one place was open there when we were there, and only a few restaurants etc. in town generally (recommended: The Altdeutsche Weinstube, which had French Week and served outstanding bistro food, including fantastic pork cheeks and a happy-making île flottante.) We had booked it because of some business in the immediate neighborhood, and all other good places in this category in the Rheingau being booked out, after Schloß Reinhartshausen having declined to a level where one really doesn't want to stay there anymore (for triple the price of the Breuer's). What a lucky move!

The house is classic **** with no pool or even sauna or gym. But our suite, which again was very modern and designed as a project by a Romanian artist in Industrial Design, was very nice; one giant window went right to the Drosselgasse. The Glockenspiel, in the same tower as our bathroom, hourly played the "Loreley" and "Leb Wohl, mein kleiner Gardeoffizier", and we could hear the mechanism on a WWI gun sound level - but only from 9 am to 10 pm, and that was actually charming. Except a too dusty parquet floor that did required slippers (not supplied) and large windows that made the suite look-through from the outside and the courtyard (and the curtains provided blocked out any light, so they were not usable in daytime), this was a fun place.

And really cheap, even including a discount for the season we hadn't even asked for! And that brings us to the prime feature of this place: Service personnel that was genuinely friendly, very professional and hospitable in a really enjoyable way. Compliments especially to the bellboy/waiter/breakfast cook (Achmed) and the main Reception lady, but all staff was great. A second outstanding feature was a free, easily accessible parking space just on the other side of the back alley (Steingasse) of the hotel, which is a side lane right from the Rhine levee street - free, safe, easily accessed close-by parking in the Rheingau is literally unheard of. (Free garages too for those who want them.) The breakfast in the winter garden was, as they say, limited in spread but the ingredients really great, incl. coffee/tea and egg dishes made to order and a bottle of the Breuer estate Sekt which makes for a happy start of the day. :-) Really great classic German grey bread, too!

I would definitely recommend this place, but again, I cannot say how loud and weird and strange it might be during Drosselgassenseason. Otherwise, "darum ist es am Rhein so schön." :-)

Room Tip: Do check the rooms available; they are very different!

We stayed here for 3 nights in early December to explore the Christmas market. We had a great room with a separate lounge, huge bathroom with underfloor heating and a geranium surrounded balcony that were flowering even in December!
The location of the hotel was perfect, 5 mins walk from the railway station and right in the centre of Ruedesheim. We will stay here again when we are next in Ruedesheim.

Our trip to Germany was wonderful, but without a doubt the cherry on the top was our stay on the Rhine, at this fine establishment. Personal attention was never lacking, food was amazing and the rooms were modern and WARM (it was winter!)
Live music in the restaurant was an absolute treat, and the children's 'Thief's plate' on the menu, where my daughter could steal food off our plates was just such fun.
The owner, Susanne Breuer, is so warm and helpful. She spent time chatting and making recommendations about what to see, and where to go.
There is NO DOUBT that should I ever have the privilege of returning to Germany, I will return to this establishment, and spend more time on the Rhine.

We are currently on a family holiday travelling through Europe. We have spent three nights in Paris at the Golden Tulip Hotel, two nights in Ruedesheim, two nights in Munich (At the Munich City Hilton Hotel (see previous review)) and three nights in Berlin at the Adina Apartments, Check Point Charlie.

Our stay in Ruedesheim was a tremendous experience. We stayed at the Ruedesheimer Schloss Hotel which was a good old fashioned rustic experience. We were greeted with a glass of the local champagne and that got the two days off to a memorable start. The reception staff were jovial, pleasant and very efficient.

Our rooms were ready on arrival. They were spotless, functional and generous. The hotel itself was rustic and friendly. The owner chatted to us on the second day and gave us an insight into the hotel and the region. There was no need to do that but it made the whole experience so much more personable.

The food was exceptional. The helpings were generous and on the second night my daughter and I shared the duck experience. It was probably one of the best meals we have had on this holiday and is certainly worth a try if you ever find yourself in this part of the world!!

The band played throughout the day and into the night, and while our room was a little noisy, it was not an issue. In fact the band's repertoir was pleasantly varied, ranging from old fashioned 'Oompah' to some current day pop!!!

We had fun. The hotel was great, the weather did not treat us too well but that was not an issue. The Christmas markets were brilliant and all in all we enjoyed the experience.

We have travelled extensively around the world but it would be hard to beat this little gem of a family hotel in the centre of Rudesheim on the middle Rhine, Germany.
We spent 3 wonderful days at the Christmas market in Rudesheim and found the service, attention to detail and the food at the Schloss superb. Understated and very relaxed atmosphere but exceptional in every way. Champagne for breakfast no less in the prettiest of restaurants! However the most praise must go to the caring staff and lovely owner, Frau Breuer who spent time and care to help us plan our days when we needed it. Had it not been for her friendly help we would never have returned back to the UK with such wonderful memories of what this magical part of the world has to offer. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to people of all ages and we will definitely return.

Room Tip: Each room is different but all very spacious

Do not expect anything remarkable from this hotel. The hotel and its restaurant is very popular for groups so it is always busy and crowdy. Many of the rooms are faced to the internal yard with a restaurant so it impossible to sleep until it closed. On the other hand you will feel the atmosphere of deutsches weingarten :) Very strange design of the room, the bed was absolutely awful.

I reserved the last room weeks in advance...The hotel is in the middle of Ruedesheim; next to the world famous Drossel Alley (wine tasting street). Our room 19 was spotless, perfect and with a balcony overlooking the romantik courtyard. (no noise in the room however). All 4 star amenities where present, even an Umbrella; The hotel was full and the restaurant packed. We did manage to get a table and we had the best duck ever. The wine proposed by the hotel is from the owners wineyards, we had to talke a couple home with us.... as it was great. Service was very friendly and efficient and the ambiance excellent! People were having a great time with the band, we had a great time with the food and the wine.

Room Tip: Go there blindfolded, it is great
