We stayed at Trierer Hof in Koblenz and thought it was just fine: not fancy but clean, good location and breakfast included in the tariff. It also has a lift, and there is parking across the street (we didn't have a car but someone in our group did.)

Here is a start from our travels !
Salzburg - Hotel Weisse Taube in the old part of town-we loved the convenience and the hearty breakfasts. The first year we had a car and loved staying in Grodig at Hotel Garni Sallerhof - again, a delightful stay and a 5 min drive into town to a free parking area.

Bacharach - Hotel Zur Post in town and Burghotel Auf Schoenburg in Oberwesel.

Rothenburg - Hotel Klosterstuble - great breakfast and loved being right in town.

Zugspitze area - we stayed in Partinkirchen at Hotel Schatten - loved watching the cows walk down the street at the end of the day !

I suggest you go to Bavaria Ben and sign into his website. He covers many of these cities and has some great properties listed off the beaten path. Google'im.

Bacharach: I've never stayed in Bacharach, so never at Im Malerwinkel, but I have seen it and people on this forum who stayed there liked it.

Berchtesgaden: I have stayed in Berchtesgaden, three times at Gästhaus Alpina. It's not in town, but it is down by the main train station, from which the buses to places like the Eagles' nest and Königssee leave. Reasonably priced for Berchtesgaden.

Rothenburg: I was just in Rothenburg. I would normally stay within the walls, but my partner's physical challenges made me pick a place outside, near the Bahnhof. We stayed at, which is a few hunrdred yards from the train station and only a couple blocks from Rödertor, the main entrance into the city.

Munich: I have never stayed here, at Pension Lindner, but probably will my next time in Munich. It's real close to Marienplatz, the town center, and reasonably priced for Munich.

In Bacharach I've stayed 3 times at Irmgard Orth's. For parking, you would need to park in the city lot, a short walk. The already mentioned Im Malerwinkel looks nice and has parking.

We were in this area in September 2017.

In Munich, we stayed at two places. For the first 5 nights we were at Pension Lindner which we loved! Great location, very nice host, rooms well kept and maintained as well as spacious and comfy, and the price was very reasonable. When we returned to Munich, we stayed our last night at the Hotel am Viktualienmarkt. The location was great, the host was wonderful and the room was well kept and clean. It was more modern and stark than our taste, but that was not a big deal. It just didn't have the charm that PL had.

In Rotenburg odT we adored the hotel we stayed at, which was the Hotel Spitzweg. Truly, I cannot praise this place enough! The host was so kind and a joy to chat with. The hotel oozes charm. We had the two bedroom family suite and it was quite spacious and well kept and clean. The hotel does not have their own wifi, but we were able to use the cities free wifi from in our room. The host makes a fabulous breakfast each morning as well.

In Salzburg, we stayed at the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten. It was fine, but we did not love it like the other places. It was clean and well kept, but more stuffy than we care for. The rooms were teeny tiny as well. The gentleman at the front desk was always very friendly, so I sort of hate to say anything negative, but it just wasn't our style. The location was fine as it was a very easy walk to everything.
