BACHARACH. Hotel Am Markt. 2009 review – budget – 4 out of 5.
65 Euros for a double room. We stayed in Room 2 which is the only one with a balcony. Comfortable, clean, no frills but cheap. The only downside for us were noises – from trains and people walking around the square below. Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. 4 out of 5 considering everything.
FUSSEN. Alstadhoten zum Hetchen. 2009 review – mid-range – 4 out of 5.
Very nice, modern, clean, with a balcony for about 90 Euros. Well situated, close to everything. No breakfast included. They also have a nice Bavarian restaurant downstairs. We would stay here again anytime.
HEIDELBERG. Hotel Hollander Hof. 2009 review – mid-range – 2 out of 5.
Perfectly located, beautiful hotel, amazingly friendly staff. But I’m giving it 2 out of 5. Why? Tthey didn’t have AC – we had to open the windows to get some air in the room. Our window was 4 floors up over an Irish pub. 2 nights of shouting and laughing and smoke drifting into the room – it totally ruined our stay. For 125 euros a night there is no excuse: if you can’t get sleep (objective #1 for a hotel room) then there is no reason to recommend the hotel. This could be a great stay – but check about the AC situation before you book.
MUNICH. Hotel Eder. 2009 review – mid-range – 3 out of 5.
Very clean, in a convenient location, not too expensive (about 90 euros a night), good breakfasts. It was also charmingly Bavarian. The wifi didn’t work for me though, and the stairs to the 4th floor were a hike. The area around it was also a bit rough, but on the other hand we were right next to the train station which made it very handy. I’d give the Hotel Eder a 3 out of 5 and would stay here again if on a short stay. If on a longer stay I’d look for something out of this area. Lissette says that single women should not stay here because of the neighborhood.
