The Rhine Route by tandem – notes on hotels and guesthouses

We stayed in 4 hotels or guesthouses. This was either because there were no suitable campsites (as in Germersheim where the campsites shown on the map were not public amenities) or in Basel where it was raining and we felt that we had earned a bed).

Here is a summary of the places we stayed:

Hotel Comment
Worms, DE Here we stayed at Hotel Hüttl as advertised in the Bikeline guide. Excellent little hotel. Secure garage for the bicycle. Central. Excellent little breakfast. Decent sized room. Well recommended.
Gamersheim, DE Hotel Post. A step back in time but excellent. We were welcomed by a mature woman who was very helpful in terms of recommendations as to where to get some food. Excellent breakfast. Large room. Cycle parking in the secure courtyard.
Rheinhausen, DE We tried at Hotel Hirsch but it was full. They recommended a nearby Gästhaus run by a retired couple. Excellent value. Breakfast included. http://www.gaestehaus-faisst.de

Breakfast in Rheinhausen

Basel, CH Dasbreitehotel is a little expensive, but an interesting experience nonetheless. The rooms are very modern and comfortable. There is wifi in the foyer. Breakfast is exceptional. Underground garage for storing the bicycle. You get a free public transport ticket for the duration of your stay (normal for Basel). The tram outside the hotel runs into central Basel every ten minutes until very late. Well recommended as a final or intermediate stop.
