Location: The hotel just opposite the ferry crossing between St. Goar and St. Goarshausen (also the boarding/disembarking point for KD) and a minute walk down from the railway station. Close to nice restaurants, and two fast-food joints (one German and one Asian, towards the left when you get out of the hotel). Easy access to the hiking trails.
Rooms: The check-in is a bit early (12:00) compared to the rest of the hotels (usually from 14:00). The hotel is tastefully decorated. The rooms are a bit small, and squeaky but generally clean. I guess some rooms do have private washrooms but we stayed in a room with shared washroom. On the top floor, one washroom was shared with other two double rooms. The washrooms were clean.
The rooms with a view to the river are excellent. You can see the castle Katz just across the river. There is a main road right outside the hotel but we didn't find it noisy at night (we stayed on the top floor) even after leaving the windows open. Also the trains didn't disturb us at night.
Facilities: There was free wifi available throughout the hotel but it didn't work for us the last day. The breakfast consisted of coffee/tea, juice, breads, cheese, salami, jam, butter and a boiled egg. I guess you can keep your bike in the small backyard of the hotel.
Staff: The owner runs the hotel and he was very accommodating and friendly. Upon arrival he gave us a guide book marked with important sights around St. Goar and gave a few tips about the sight seeing. He was kind enough to lend his bikes for us to visit Oberwesel and take a bath in the Rhein (There is a small sandy beach just before the railway tunnel when you drive/bike towards Oberwesel) in the evening. He made sure we enjoyed our stay. Very caring and friendly man.
In short, we are satisfied with the value for money factor (40EUR while the next cheapest hotel charged 75EUR) and the pleasant staff.
