“One of the best hotels we have ever stayed at”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

We stayed here on our tour of the black forest, and what a hidden gem this place is. It is all newly renovated, and we have never had such a great experience. We were exhausted from our travels, and were welcomed by extremely friendly staff and given complimentary champagne and snacks, followed by free use of the spa! The spa was very nice and was exactly what we needed to refresh. The facilties are amazing with a beautiful garden patio at the back with beautiful views of the amazing town of Gengenbach. The spa is top notch and our modern room was comfortable, extremely clean and included snacks and drinks. The restaurant is absolutely incredible, and was one of the best meals we have ever had! The chef turned out to be the owner of the hotel, and every thing we ordered was absolutely amazing. He came out and greeted each table and personally made sure each person had an amazing meal and stay at his hotel. He and his staff also helped us plan our tour of the black forest.
It is set right in the middle of the medieval town of Gengenbach, and it feels like you are stepping back in time once you leave the hotel. What a gorgeous little town and one of the best places we have ever visited. The hotel was a bit tricky to find from the train station, but if you get to the main square it is easier to find from there. Literally couldn't have had a better experience. Would recommend this place to everyone I know.

Along a visit to the wonderful Xmas market in the old city center, we stayed 2 nights (and ate one evening) in this very agreeable hotel.

Nothing too flashy, but quiet, comfortable room and a very good food - and also a nice surprise with the wine grown by the young owner. Try the red Spätburgunder !

We’ll certainly come back to discover the area in another season.

We did a fly-drive holiday, staying in different places throughout the Black Forest, and Gengenbach was the highlight. It's a beautiful town - with charm, character and lots of flowers - and this is a fabulous hotel to stay in. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are great, food is delicious, there's a nice garden where breakfast is served in the summer and a very relaxing, 'chill out' space where you can unwind after enjoying the delights of the town. Our sat nav had trouble finding the hotel initially, as Gengenbach has lots of narrow, winding streets. But, in the end, we discovered that the hotel is just up a hill off the high street, so it's really accessible and there's even a car park outside. If you're touring the Black Forest, I'd strongly recommend you put Gengenbach on your itinerary and stay here.

What a relief from the usual Chain Hotels.
Very tasteful and unique designed rooms.
Fantastic sleep quality.
Hotel appointments are just outstanding.
Nice Hotel staff.
A place to chill out in a wonderful atmosphere.
No doubt, I will go back again!

Room Tip: Any Room is nice. The parking situation is strange for a tourist town like Gengenbach. A parking...

My fiancé and I stayed here for a few nights during out visit to the
Black Forest! We had read all of the wonderful reviews on here before booking, but these really do not do this place or the people justice! Our room was fantastic, the facilities outstanding, food exceptional and the staff were incredibly friendly! We were given so much help and advice from the staff on where to visit which made out stay perfect! If you are in the neighbourhood stay and if not, take a detour to go! We can't wait to return and stay here again!!! Thank you for our wonderful experience!

We stayed at this hotel in July of 2013. What a warm and friendly greeting we had awaiting us upon our arrival. Smiles, handshakes, kind allowances of my so so German speaking abilities(although the staff spoke perfect English), a tour of the facilities, and suggestions of things to do in the area. Friendly greetings can really set the tone for a great stay, and after coming from a Hotel in France a few nights before where we were welcomed by indifference and eye rolling, it was a very welcome gesture.
The facilities were top notch. Our 2 bedroom suite was spotlessly clean, quiet, updated to the hilt, and with very comfortable beds.
Breakfast was a nice assortment of breads, cheeses, meats, and coffee and juice.
Parking was easy and free.
Location is 2 minutes from the square.
Gengenbach is a nice old preserved town in the middle of the northern Black Forest, close to many area attractions.
I highly recommend Die Reichstadt if you are visiting this part of the Black Forest.

We were on our way to Italy and stopped here, about 9 Km from the highway. It was a very nice surprise! The village itself was lovely, old and pitoresque. The hotel was in a very narrow street in the old part of town. Dinner was served in the garden, which was good! We had 2 rooms looking out to the garden. We would definitely stop here again the next time, even might stay longer. Friendly personnel too.
