“Very basic but great location”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Very basic room, but location couldn't be better. Except maybe for the neabry church bells that start at an ungodly time in the morning.

Very friendly reception, clean room, good beds, ample breakfast. No possible to eat there at night, but there are plenty of restaurant withing walking distance so there's really no need for this.

We stayed one night for the Christmas market and had a nice time at this hotel. It has a great location, smack in the middle of where you want to be. It is not luxurious but was very clean and had a great rate. The breakfast was good, the owner polite and the beds were pretty comfortable too! The heater worked perfectly and the shower water was hot. We stayed in a triple room which didn't have much of a view but had plenty of room for us to move about. The TV had lots of channels including English ones. We brought our small dog and did not have to pay a fee. Keep in mind that the stairs are steep. We had no issues with this hotel!

It is a cheap hotel so that needs to be taken into account. It's more of a bed and breakfast than a hotel, the owner also attends a shop and when we arrived at the hotel there was a sign indicating we should find him in the shop and we could not enter the so called 'hotel'... Upon entering the hotel, there was a strong and unpleasant musty smell. There is no lift, but we did not mind the steep and narrow stairs, it might be an issue for other travellers.
The room , which was supposed to be a double room, was a twin room, we did not get what we paid for and that was incorrect of the owner. The bathroom was tiny, and the shower water was cold to luke warm...in the middle of the winter. The room was small but the furniture was pleasant, it could be improved if the owner changed the awful aged linoleum floor.
The hotel for me had no charm whatsover, it did not strike me either as a typical German hotel, I would not return, despite its great location.

Burghotel is right in the middle of Monschau and a short walk from the Burgau parking. The interior of the hotel is somewhere in between outdated and quaint, but (and this is most important) the hotel had great and comfy beds, it was quiet and had really friendly and helpful staff. And the breakfasts were divine. I would definitely reccommend this hotel. They also have good walking/hiking tips.

Room Tip: The suite on the top floor has great views.

We spent two nights in the Burghotel, nice clean hotel and in an ideal spot, only five minutes walk from Burgau parking lot. The room and en-suite were basic but clean and warm, perfectly functional and well worth the price. The host 'Jimmy' was a lovely chap, made time for you and very welcoming. The Breakfast was great, meat, cheese, rolls, jam, orange juice, egg and bacon if wanted, and the mrs loved the coffee, nice and hot! Cannot fault it. Overall a lovely break away, we would highly recommend to anyone who does not expect the glam of a posh hotel, a lovely hotel in a lovely town. we will be visiting again next year.

This hotel has no pretensions. It is very well located in the middle of Monschau. It is comfortable and clean. The room was well furnished if basic, but totally functional. Most importantly, nothing was too much trouble for the owner, Hr Peter. He is clearly (and rightly) proud of what he does and how he presents his hotel. As a base it is a perfect choice for the tourist.

As everyone comments and I must share, breakfast is a big meal – a really enjoyable meal providing you enjoy ham, cheese, eggs and rolls which, luckily, I do.

In short, this hotel represents excellent value for money.

A little confusing on arrival. Door was shut with a sign saying go to shop around corner if shut. We went to shop around the corner to find a sign saying go to hotel around corner if shut!! Got in eventually to find a clean well presented hotel. Breakfast was very good if you like lots of meat and cheese with many varieties of bread. Unfortunately my wife would have preferred yoghurt fruit or cereal but no complaints from me. The place was well situated and good value so i would stay there again.
