8/10 Very Good

Awesome view on the Mosel, and great breakfast!

6/10 Good

Historical Inn
The hotel is very conveniently located to city center and walking distance to the Mosel waterfront. Restaurants and pubs close by, however the hotel is very old so it’s a bit difficult to negotiate the stairs and small spaces. It is a very historical building and the furniture is all antique. That is fine if you can accommodate it but it’s a bit challenging if that is not your expectation. My room was a bit damp and musty and because the room was located near the kitchen there was a food smell. This hotel would not be my first choice for the area.

4/10 Fair

The not so charming tourist trap.
I felt misguided by the booking information, and apparently the so-called annex was not adjacent to the old and charming building in the pictures, but is exactly 450 meters out of town adjacent to a road with heavy traffic. The service was quick, efficient and not very hearty. This is a tourist trap and we were merely cattle that had to be accommodated with as little fuss as possible. Cochem has some lovely streets, good wine, great views and a marvelous castle, and luckily and probably most importantly, it has alternatives to the Alte Thorschenke.

It felt like you were stepping back in time. Part of the hotel was built in the 1300’s. The staff was extremely kind. A very nice breakfast was included.
