Hotel Burg Liebenstein is another great hotel in Kamp-Bornhofen, about 60 km downstream from Ruedesheim, and it offers a great panoramaview and lots of possibilities to hike.
The castle is quite remote, offers a fews great rooms at reasonable prices - just click on the link below !
I was there in early april, the week before easter and there were just a very few guests, as the street going up is quite steep.
They have a great interior with an old Iron armour and lovely furniture.
Reichenstein castle dates back to the 11th century.
In the 13th century the castle belonged to one of the most dangerous robber-barons, and as the castle had such an important position in the Rhine-valley, the emperor decided to destruct the castle and set him into prison.
It lasted 4 years to get hold of him and he was finally "made one head shorter" , as we say it in German...
Today Castle Reichenstein is a great hotel, high above the valley and almost no noise of the trainline will get to your sleepingroom.
This lovely hotel and restaurant is in a sidestreet , quite in a distance of Drosselgasse and its noises of day and night.
They have a lovely garden restaurant and a really beautiful half-timbered facade.
In that area, you will certainly hear NO noises at all from the trains rushing through the Rhine-valley about every half hour, day and night.
Burg Rheinfels is partly a ruin today and a modern ****hotel was added close to it.
The very best about this hotel is the perfect Rhine-view that you have from many of their rooms and the hotel-terrace.
We found this small hotel accidentally, directely on the mainroad through Kamp-Bornhofen.
At night, there is almost no cartrafic, and also the train is running in quite a distance, so you will NOT hear it in the night.
For a singleroom with private facilities we payed 29 Euros, an excellent breakfast included.
The rooms are nice, but simple, and without TV.
Showers were hot all the time, although we had been the only guests.
We had dinner in the Hotel-restaurant and I have to say it was one of the best meals I had in the area !
The nice lady offered even a free appetizer - a large leave of cabbage, filled with vegetables.
I had venison and my mother roasted cheese - the portion was finally too much for her and the prices were cheap as well.
Hotel Post is directely INSIDE Drosselgasse, so you have just a few steps to be in the big crows of people, IF that is what you are looking for...
I am not sure, whether you are able to find some sleep in Drosselgasse before 02.00 a.m.
The is just a few hundred meters from the train-station, and pretty close to the rail-track, where lots of trains run all night, even when Drosselgasse has fallen asleep already...
Not far from Ruedesheim you may sleep in this old castle, that was transfered into a modern hotel.
It is situated in KAUB, close to the castle Pfalzgrafenstein.

Hotels in the small villages along the river Rhine always have the problem that the trains pass by in a short distance, and quite a lot of trains run even at night.
In a castle hotel, high above the Rhine, you may sleep much better...
Just opposite of the famous Loreley-rock you may find a campgroud.
The Loreley is about 40 Km downstream from Ruedesheim.
In the old legends there is a young lady sitting on top of the rock, singing and combing her hair...
...many sailors lost their lifes, when they started to watch that lady instead of concentrating on the river.
In fact this part of the Rhine is the most dangerous and traficlights for ships will regulate the one-way-trafic there.
Camping close to the river Rhine might be dangerous, as floods happen eventually several times a year.
I remember plenty of campgrounds with Caravans inside the water, when I was working for KD-German Rhinelines in 1980.
We wandered around Rüdesheim am Rhein looking for a hotel to stay. We found this hotel/restaurant about 2 blocks off the main street. As is normal in Europe, the hotel included breakfast. Rooms had spacious bed, shower and sink. WC was common on each floor (of 5 rooms).
We would recommend the hotel. Very reasonably priced, and price included overnight parking behind a locked gate. Staying at Rüdesheim was quieter than the past few nights in big cities - even the church bells did not ring from 10pm to 10am.
This camping is in a side-valley of the Rhine, in Lahnstein not far from Koblenz.
In a distance of just about 100 meters you may see a great castle : Lahneck
The camping Lahneck is on a mountain, so the floods of the river are NO problem there, BUT also the view on the Rhine-valley is missing.
Well it's a castle for starters. It is one of the oldest castles on the Rhine -- the first reference to it was in 1214! After several rounds of destruction it was rebuilt in the 1300s. After it had fallen into bad disrepair, it was purchased privately in 1899. Now it is a hotel and tavern.
The guesthouse has 34 beds and rates well under 100 euro a night per room. While still in the touristy section of town at least it is off Drosselgasse itself!
They also have bikes for rent.
There is also a restaurant connected with this guesthouse. The restaurant, of course, features the wines of this part of the Rhine, as well as the usual German specialties of the region.
THE place to stay on this stretch of the Rhine is the 5 crown Hotel Krone. It dates as a place to stay back to the 1500s! They have certainly upgraded since then! You can either have a view of the river or the vineyards.
The hotel is very visible from the river with its unique regional architecture and overflowing flowerboxes.
A 3 star property just off of Drosselgasse on Grabestr. It sports an elevator and some air conditioning as well as crisply charming rooms. Not to mention the restaurant on the premises!
The facade is worthy of note as it is more detailed than most of the local timbered houses.
Located in a quiet surrounding near by the river side with a short distance to the centre of town.
Awarded as one of the most outstanding campsites in the country.
It is adjacent to an open air swimming pool and recreational area.
