Good hotel in the outskirts of Cochem. By the way, "outskirts" means only that the famous Cochem castle is located almost exactly opposite, across Moselle river. Clean, pleasant interior, even hairdryer in the room, this is met not everywhere.But not all is wonderful. The check-in is scheduled from 14 to 17. I came at 13-53, but was forced to wait...

Overlooking the river, right opposite central Cochem, this must be one of the nicest B&B:s around. Small-ish with a very personal and good service, willing and keen to help you with hints and advice on whatever you'd like to do while in Cochem. We had a room right on the top, overlooking the river an with a lovely view over...

The B&B location is really good. It is opposite to the Cochem Castle. The view from the house is stunning. Anyway we are not happy as we had special request and got the email confirmation from the owner a month before checking for river view room. Finally we got the room at the back with building view and could not...

Our family had a very enjoyable 4 night stay at Altes Fahrhaus. The couple running the place were both friendly and helpful, they greeted us upon arrival, and helped get us situated in our rooms. The rooms were clean and comfortable, plus the breakfast we had every morning was tasty and filling. Location is great, with nice views of the...

We were on the way to Lauenburg and this was our stopover accommodation. It is a small hotel situated right close to the river which makes it convenient if you are planning some outdoor activities close to the river. It is between Hamburg and Lauenburg and therefore convenient to access both. The service was very friendly and we had some...

We stayed in this beautiful old house for 5 nights in mid July and were delighted with our choice of accommodation. The hotel is front line facing onto the Moselle and directly opposite the castle and was an easy fifteen minute walk from the station. We asked for a quiet room and were shown to No.3 on the second floor...

I cannot think of enough superlatives to recommend the accommodations and service by the owners. Simple but pristinely clean, cosy and comfortable rooms, great breakfast, charming, helpful and very accommodating hosts. Everyone who visits Cochem should stay there! Cochem is a jewel of a town at the foot of an impressive castle and the view of it from Altes Fahrhaus...

We found this hotel on the south/east side of the mosel river after finding the main part of Cochem crowded and noisy. The hotel faces the river, a quiet street, a romantic walking path and the river. There's a great view of the castle. The stairwell is very creaky, but our room was in the back and with a short...

This little B&B has fantastic views of the castle and Cochem from SOME of the rooms and not as claimed in some brochures, ALL but the family room. The family room is spacious and has a nice (albeit unfinished) bathroom whilst room 2 has a terrible view onto the wall of another house and is "in-suite" rather than "en-suite", ie,...

This little pink house on the river in Cochem is a pretty B&B typical of the area. The owner lives on premise in the back side of the house band the front side is guest rooms. We stayed in #7, a double on the 3rd floor with a full view of the castle. Very romantic. We also had the small...
