valerie, do a Search (gray box on top of this page) for "Bacharach Hotels" and "Bacharach restaurants" and you'll find a ton of threads and reports on the subjects. Its a tiny place, with only a few main streets where things are clustered. Many people seem to choose hotels based on location, as in being further from the traintracks because of noise. You can go to TripAdvisor and play around with the map and see where many hotels are located.

We stayed the last time at Hotel zur Post and it was comfortable and easy walk from rail station. I don't remember names of the restaurants we visited, but there are a few that offer wine tasting that we enjoyed. Its easy enough to stroll around and pick a place to eat without worrying about reservations or crowds.

I suggest you go on one of the search engines and put in "Bacharach B&B's". You can also go to: http://www.Booking.com/B+Bs-Bacharach
Bacharach is one of those places where the B&B's of any price will be just fine--very nice and very clean. Your B&B host can tell you which restaurants to visit. You might want to stay right in the city, however.
I've stayed there 3-4 times over the years. The oldest place will be Kurt and Fatima's Hotel Kranenturm, but I don't suggest it due to the trains whizzing by below their windows. Kurt does have a good restaurant, however. And the place dates back to something like 1588--overlooking the Rhine River.
Bacharach is a very small city on the banks of the river with a train line running through. We have found it a great place to spend the night, but it's too small to be a destination. The train can get you to the Frankfurt Airport promptly too. The local farms are famous for their distinctive, sweet wines.

We stayed at Altkoelnischer-hof, they have apartments too, I think we paid about 200 euro total for 2 nights in one. It was fairly large too. It's in a building just down the street from the hotel.

David, the reviews for Hotel Kranenturm were not good, even though it was recommended by Rick Steves. Thanks again

Kerri,
Unfortunately they are booked for the date that we need. Thank you.

The bad reviews on Hotel Kranenturm are usually because the hotel sits right next to the train tracks. However, all of the rooms are not 'on' the tracks and not everyone is bothered by the train noises. I loved my stay there. It's clean, the management is friendly and conscientious, the restaurant there is very nice, and the hotel building itself is quite unique. I was never bothered by the train noise myself even though my room was right next to the tracks. I would recommend it, with qualifications regarding the possibility of noise from the trains.

We also stayed at the Altkoelnischer-hof. We had dinner twice at the Cafe Rusticana. Our meals were fine, but the owner made the evenings special . When the American couples at the table next to ours admired the cruets on the table, she pulled a box from a cupboard and insisted they accept it as her gift. We got to chatting with them. When a group of three German couples at the other table commented on our apparent conviviality we asked them to join us and spent one of the most memorable evenings ever over dinner. Yes, the food was good and the price was right but it was our hostess’s warmth and caring that I will remember. My kind of place .

All the town accommodations are listed on the town website www.bacharach.de. If you have questions, the tourist office is very helpful and prompt in answering emails. I stay at Irmgard Orth’s b&b. Very nice landlady, but only 2 rooms w/o bath, 1 with. The previously mentioned Malerwinkel is in a very nice location.

Cafe Rusticana is where we eat at least a couple of times when we are there. They are retiring Oct. 31. For a pizza or doner, the place across the street from it is very good and inexpensive.

We enjoyed the Hotel Kranenturm when we stayed there on a RS tour some years ago - 8, I think. We were also on another RS tour in Bacharach last year, and stayed at the Hotel am Markt, which we also liked. I noted in my log that our room was big and airy. That doesn't mean that they all are, however.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Kranenturm. Even tho we had a room on the tracks side, the insulation in the windows is very good, and we only occasionally noticed the train sounds. The trains pass by very quickly and seemed to make a quieter "swoosh" sound, instead of anything more disturbing.
Safe travels!

In 2017 we (as mentioned by an earlier respondent) stayed in Hotel zur Post. Our room was on the top floor overlooking the street (no elevator). The room was mighty fine and Ute was wonderful.

Thank you Jeff.
Unfortunately, there are no rooms for the night that we need.

valerie, when is your trip and where are you looking for booking information? Sometimes small hotels wont book too far in advance, or if you go through a booking site like Booking.com they don't always show all availability.

Stan,
I was trying to book hotel zur post as others have recommended for oct 2 but it is not available. I am visiting my daughter who lives in Düsseldorf and thought that Bacharach would be a nice place to visit ,before we head towards our Village Italy tour on October 7. Thank you

Yeah, that's only two weeks away, so you might be limited to whatever hotel would be available. I was asking about websites you might be using because sometimes e-mailing the hotel directly finds a vacancy.

Good idea about calling the hotel directly. I will try that. Thanks again
