“Back to "School" along the Rhine Valley”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

During a group tour we stayed in this converted elementary school for two nights while enjoying castle exploring along the historic Rhine valleys. This recently opened "school-hause" was surprising in both the quality and the comfort of this unique concept. Although slightly downriver from the normal tourist route this delightful "Schulhaus" was a highlight of our visit. The rooms and facilities were absolutely spotless in cleanliness and the beds perfect. The modern decor and large bathrooms were delightful. The staff was extremely helpful and took great pride in offering the best accommodations and a chance to visit their delightful town. A local wine greeting by the hotel manager was a nice touch. The breakfast was one of the best during our tour and the morning staff were exceptionally kind to us "let-lagged" travelers who wandered in for espresso a bit early. The wine estate Altenkirch is a partner company nearby and offered a terrific dining experience and great wine tasting. The surrounding town offers quiet solitude and a friendly attitude that welcomes guests.
If you are exploring the castles or hiking in the local area this "Gem of the Rhine" is not to be missed.

Room Tip: The normal standard class rooms were excellent although upscale rooms are available.

We stayed 5 nights in this wonderful hotel when walking the Rheinsteig and sightseeing along the Rhine. When I phoned to confirm my reservation, we were promised a downstair room. Upon arrival we found our room, next to the downstairs exit which was very convenient for a late night stroll with our four footed friend. We also found two brand new bowls for water and food ready for our dog. Excellent! The room was clean and very comfortable. Even the bathtub was one of the best I have ever seen in a hotel. Long enough and deep enough for a good soak after a days walking. My only comment is that the surface is somewhat slippery when showering. Some anti slip strips would be sensible. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is excellent.

This hotel was brand new and extremely well appointed when we stayed in May 2013. We were walking the Rheinsteig and staying here after 14km of walking was really relaxing and refreshing. It was very easy to find and the staff provided excellent service and very knowledgeable help. We only stayed one night as we were walking for only one week but wished we could have stayed longer. Will definitely stay again when we return to Germany to re-walk the Rheinsteig.
