The City hotel in Idar Oberstein is located just outside of centre of Oberstein. Idar-Oberstein is basically a long stretched city between the hills. If your business or pleasure is in Idar, just be aware that some travelling from this hotel might be necessary to reach your final destination. It is near the main train station of Idar-Oberstein. If you come by car, the hotel itself doesn't have any parking spots, but plenty are available nearby. After business hours, most of them are free of charge.

The building itself is an old house with 12 large rooms. All rooms are named after gemstones, which is the main source of income for this region and probably your reason to visit Idar-Oberstein. I got one of the rooms on the top floor. Rooms are large, a bit dated but quality is still good. You have a choice between twin beds and a king bed. If you choose king, matrasses and blankets are still 1 person size bit at least the bed is one piece.

The bathroom is -compared to the room- a bit small, but still good. I had a good quality shower: water pressure and temperature were not fluctuating.

Breakfast is served by the owner/manager of the hotel: choice is limited but the owner/manager will try to accomodate every request you'll make. The hotel reception is not manned 24/7 so beware of check-in and check-out times. There is no restaurant on site, but the nearby city centre of Oberstein has a couple of choices, which offer a good meal for a very reasonable price.

The hotel offers free wifi which is fast and available in the rooms.

I arrived in town several hours later than expected on a Sunday night when most businesses in town are closed. The owner had left me a note with contact information. Within minutes she returned from home to check me in and provide information on the city. The next morning, I slept late but was amazed to find a fully set table in the breakfast room awaiting me. It was past serving hours but staff knew that I arrived late and wanted to ensure that I started my stay on the right note. The rooms are good size, clean, and comfortable. The price is VERY reasonable. The only issue was having to pay in cash when I checked out. The hotel had just changed ownership and had not completed arrangements to accept all types of credit cards. However, I had been told of this ahead of time so it was not a major inconvenience. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay there again!
