We were in Ottrott for a relaxing week-end in Alsace, to enjoy the beautiful countryside and good food that this region has to offer. We chose Ottrott as it has a very good location in order to visit the sights nearby, such as the Haut-Koenigsbourg castle (really excellent) or Mont-Saint-Odile; and it also has excellent restaurants such as l'Ami Fritz. The hotel is easy to find and has sufficient parking space directly in front of it.
The village itself is very charming and quiet, which also applies to the hotel where you can indeed hear the birds singing in the morning. The room we had was quite small, and the decoration and amenities are a bit old. For the two nights we spent there it was certainly ok, but for a longer stay I would choose a different hotel. We slept well, as the room has two doors and is therefor sufficiently soundproof.
The service is almost nonexistent - we were greeted none too friendly by a receptionist but who is only there for a very limited amount of time; the roomkey also works for the front door so that one can go in and out at any time even without a receptionist.
I really would not recommend to have breakfast at the hotel. There is very little choice, what is there is not really very tasty (the coffee is particularly bad), the waitress does not really understand the most simple demands (café au lait is not the same thing as a latte macchiato) and in addition to that it is not even very cheap at 14 EUR per person. Better to go elsewhere to a nice café in one of the surrounding villages and have breakfast there.
In summary, I would say that just for spending one or two nights the hotel is quite ok, but for a bit of comfort, service and a good breakfast I would look elsewhere.
