Charming, but small.

Posted Sep 30, 2013
Pros: Affordable, great small old German village. Buildings date back to 1600's.
Location: Assmannshausen is a small village that has multiple weinguts nearby. The town is also a 4 minute train ride from Rudesheim.
It's a very old building. While the exterior has old Europe charm, the interior is small and cramped. Unfortunately our room was also 10 meters from the train tracks. At night the freight trains run all night.

I would not recommend this hotel. We are pretty easy to please but the directions did not indicate that there was construction and when I called to ask how to get there. The owner Mr. Lippert said that if we didn't get there before 10 pm we would be locked out. When I asked for directions he hung up on me. We made it by 10 pm, he did not have the double bed room we had reserved and said we could have the twin room or nothing. We looked at it and it was awful and right next to the train that went by often. We returned to the office and said that we would be willing to stay there one night but wanted a double bed room that was on the reservation. He said he did not have any for the weekend. He finally agreed to give us an apartment about 250 meters away. We stayed there, it was okay with a beautiful view but musty and did not have any amenities except the hair dryer.

Ideal for touring the upper end of the Rhine Valley. For Rudesheim it is either car or for a small charge the next stop on the train. For the more energetic, then there is the journey up the hill on a chair lift followed by a 25 minute walk through the wooded peak and then down to Rudesheim in the 2-4 person gondala lift. The hotel is quaint and typically old German. The rooms are varied in size and shape. Breakfast was good continental but be aware of the 6 o clock wakeup call from the bells of the church next door. Car parking was available in a locked garage in the hotel annex 50M down the narrow street. The village had several restaurants (including the hotel) to eat at. Some overlooked the Rhine.

Cute town, cozy place

Posted Jul 14, 2010
The town of Assmannshausen is very cute. We stayed there and biked along the river, which is a great way to see it. Had a very small room but comfortable/clean enough. Free parking in a garage, which was a big plus in this town. Didn't have breakfast--8 euro a piece. Friendly staff. We did have dinner which was traditional German, hearty food. No AC but our first floor guest house room wasn't too bad, even on a very hot summer weekend. There's a fair amount of noise but that must be the case at every hotel in this town.

Cute hotel with great service

Very pleasant stay at the Hotel Altes Haus. Ladies who run it speak pretty good english and have a REALLY good red wine called Rudesheim (sp?) in the attached restaurant. Felt warm and welcome. Rooms are simple but had everything we needed for our one night stay.

Four stars for a Two star

Posted Jun 30, 2009 on Hotels.com
My rating of this hotel is based on the fact that I was expecting a bog standard 2 star affair. I went 4 a quick weekend break with a friend. Just wanted somewhere cheap to use as a base - so wasn't expecting much for the comparative low price. What we did get was a nice surprise. A warm welcome and booked straight in with no fuss. The rooms - comfortable but aged furniture. I would like to see it updated - but remember this building dates back to the 1300's and looks superb 4 it's age. We had single rooms with en-suite shower & toilet which were clean & adequate. Now comes the good bit. The food. The breakfast buffet included was better than I've had in some 4 star hotels - OK you had to serve yourself - but you can eat as much as is available and you're set for the day. The one evening meal we ate there was reasonably priced and comparative to the local restaurants in quality. The staff - I only met 2 - were helpful and informative. A private garage 4 parking your car topped off this little gem of a place. Although the railway runs through the centre of the village it is inaudible once inside, so no problems if you're a light sleeper. To summarise - If you want good value no frills accommodation 4 a few night then you can't get much better than this. On the other hand if you want to be pampered and waited on hand & foot, forget it.
