“Good comfort in historical building”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

Burg Crass is the oldest preserved building in Eltville and part of the structure dates from the 12th century. The hotel is surrounded by a large park and features a garden restaurant, both with splendid views of the Rhine river. The whole setup is rather charming.

Reception was warm and friendly and we could access our room immediately even though it was only 1pm. The room was large and comfortable, while the bath room could have been slightly bigger. An odd detail was that the wardrobe did not have any hangers, but since we stayed only one night we didn't bother to ask for any.

Breakfast is rich and very good, with eggs prepared freshly according to order. If there were fresh orange juice, it would be perfect.

Overall, an enjoyable experience, but (as others have noted) not exactly cheap. Well, Eltville is a favorite excursion place for wealthy Frankfurters and features few hotels. It is a charming village. So the price simply reflects market realities ... Having said that I don't think we paid too much. The beautiful setting and personal service are worth it.

What a beautiful location on the banks of the river Rhein. Just a few rooms and a very warm service, die make our stay very pleasant. THE food is very good. The rooms are spacious and also very good for families. The garden is beautiful.

we were looking for a castle styled hotel. this is a close call for the money, but not really authentic. rooms are spacious but not stunning. breakfast is awesome as you sit by the river in a nice overgrown garden.

My husband and I were in Eltville for a family wedding and several of us booked rooms at Burg Crass. The hotel is very small, really just 6 or so rooms above the restaurant of the same name. In fact, there is no lobby proper and check in is in the restaurant.

We had a small suite on the top floor of the hotel and we were also able to see a few of the rooms on the second floor, and found them all to be charming and comfortable. The rooms were very simply decorated, clean, and with wonderful light from all the large windows. A few of the rooms also had beautiful views of the Rhein river.

Despite the fact that they do not print a word of English on their website (http://www.burgcrass-eltville.de/cms/index.php), the staff at reception spoke very good English, and we found them to be very helpful and friendly.

This hotel was definitely not the cheapest option in Eltville, but the room price included a very tasty breakfast and free parking, and we thought it was well worth the price. And by the way, the restaurant is also very good!
