Koblenz hotels Old Town – a guide to the best places to stay in Koblenz, Germany.
Koblenz is an ancient city in Rhineland, Western Germany. The city occupies the banks of the Rhine and Moselle rivers. In fact, it lies at their confluence. This makes it a gateway to the terraced vineyards and castles along the Rhine and Moselle.
Where to stay in Koblenz – the best area
If you’re visiting the city for sightseeing or shopping choose a hotel in Koblenz Old Town or nearby. This is the best area to stay. All tourist attractions are here. You can walk pretty much everywhere you need to go.
If you plan to explore the surroundings by train, the southern part of Koblenz Old Town is the better choice. The Central Railway station is just a stone’s throw away from there. Plus, you’d be still in the hearth of the city.
As I used the city as a base to explore the castles on the Rhine river, I chose the southern part of the Old Town. In this way, I was at a walkable distance from the train station and all main attractions. Plus on the way to the railway station, there are a few nice bakeries for a quick breakfast. I liked the most Bäckerei Hoefer and Ulrikes Kulturbackhaus.
It’s a lovely 3-star hotel right next to the Central Railway station.
