“A very pleasant stay”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I stayed in room no. 1 from April 5 to 11.

I agree with all the positive reviews here. Rooms are very comfortable and the decor is excellent. The quality of food offered at the breakfast buffet is very high - everything either home made or locally produced. The hotel is located at the most convenient place, yet away from the noise. The people are extremely nice and helpful.

Highly recommended.

Great location, not far from the Cathedral. We thought the Hotel Stern am Rathaus offered good value for money for a suite
Excellent amenities in the split level room, fairly quiet for a city Hotel....
The large bed was very comfortable and also the room has an excellent luxury bathroom with a large wet-room style shower and a big bath.
Our room rate included the delicious breakfast with eggs cooked to order and a good choice of other breakfast items..Home-made jam, lovely breads, fruit, yogurt etc:
We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel very much
No lift.... so a few stairs to go up to the suite at the top of the building......

The hotel looks somewhat boring from the outside, but don't be fooled by this. Once you step inside, you are met with friendly professionality, the rooms are newly renovated, breakfast is wonderful and the location is perfect.

First of all, the hotel sent reminder of the upcoming stay. It also showed clear direction (with pictures) to the hotel. A little bit of walk from the train station but hotel location is close to the main shopping streets. We arrived early that day when the room was not ready. We took a walk around town first and later found pieces our heavy luggage were up in the room. Note that there is no lift in the boutique hotel. We found the service warm and friendly, in particular, there is a gentleman who offered good suggestions of places to visit.

I booked through Expedia for a 3-person room because the hotel website did not have this selection. Suggest that you contact the hotel direct. Room is not large for three person though.

Stayed at the hotel for four nights in March. Staff were warm and helpful. Room was comfortable with UK charging facility as an extra. Location could not be faulted with easy access to the Altstadt and all the sights.

This boutique hotel certainly lives up to its reputation. We booked the suite at the top of the hotel and it exceeded our expectations ( although you need to be fit as there is no lift ! ). The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom quite luxurious. The breakfasts provided interesting, home-made options with a variety of breads and daily smoothies. We were also provided with suggestions of places to visit each day and these proved to be immensely rewarding e.g. Konigswinter, Drachenburg, and Zons. The staff were helpful and efficient, so we would definitely recommend this as a brilliant place to stay and excellent value for money.

We stayed at Stern am Rathaus for three nights. The staff were excellent: friendly, helpful and professional. The room was good: reasonable size, very comfortable and clean with a lovely bathroom. Location was good: on a quiet street really close to the Dom, station restaurants and the Rhine. Breakfast was really good with lots of home-produced offerings (including butter!). We would not hesitate in recommending the hotel to anyone looking for a small, friendly, quiet independent hotel. Only thing to look out for is that there is no lift - not a problem for anyone who can walk up a few flights of stairs, but if you can't, best avoid

Room Tip: Room 6 was good: quite large and quiet
