phone: +49 6722 90450address: Rheinuferstraße 6Three-star hotel on the Rhine, very close to train station. Modern, recently renovated rooms, friendly English-speaking staff. Note that only "Comfort" and above rooms actually have Rhine views, while the "Standard" rooms face the train line to the back and can be quite noisy; ask for a quiet room, and they'll bump you up if there's space.
