The Schloss Reinhartshausen Kempinski rises in the city of Erbach, in the Rheingau Region and it is surrounded by luxuriant vineyards. Frankfurt International Airport is just 35 km from the hotel and can be reached quickly by car, taxi or public transport.
"Posh hotel with nice decos "
Hotel is about 30mins away frm the Airport, so if catching a flight, good to give buffer time in case of unforeseen traffic conditions. The guest reception area was nicely decorated to give a posh look. Customer service staff are friendly and very helpful! Rooms were big and clean and Free Wifi is available for use. Didn't use any of the other facility but I remember seeing swimming pool and body massage services were available. Breakfast items spread is not huge but decent.
"Traditional German Accomodation"
We were in one of the large one bedroom suites, with a connecting door to another room, and therefore had a very large 2 bedroom suite. The suite was probably 800 square feet in size, with a very generous living room. The furniture were quite formal and not suitable for lounging. The food was excellent, and the breakfast buffet generous. The small park/formal gardens surrounding the hotel was beautifully maintained. The hotel is quite traditional in style, and really should have some updating as some of the bathrooms look and feel quite dated.
"Wine, Fine Dining and Promenades"
The Hotel is a fantastic venue with impeccable service, great wines and high class dining, and impressive spa. The location is central for the Rheingau wine-region and if you are fine to do some walking, you can reach all the interesting place by foot: Schloss Johannisberg, Kloster Eberbach, Rüdesheim, Eltville... with all sight-seeing & wine producers. It is also a super place for jogging, hiking and biking. A boat ride can be booked right at the hotel.
Quiet location. Beautiful building with large and well furnished public spaces. Large rooms. Staff is friendly, attentive and very helpful. Close to several small towns with good restaurants, for some variety. Beautiful dining room with excellent food. Pet friendly.
I'm a hard marker - so even though TripAdvisor defines 4 stars as "very good", I rate this hotel as excellent. (I reserve 5 stars for exceptionally excellent.) We stayed 2 nights as part of our Christmas market tour, Beautiful building, huge and well appointed public areas. Large rooms, quiet almost-country location (although several small towns are within 10 km). Pet friendly. Excellent restaurant set in a truly lovely dining room. Very friendly, attentive, and helpful service.
