Although the street frontage is imposing the rooms (approached by a dark and dirty corridor) are in a separate building at the back. Reception was never manned and communication was poor. Room was large and relatively clean but bathroom was poky. Room was not properly cleaned and certainly not tidied. Bed was large but the duvet was under-sized!

One should have known the experience was going to be poor. The waiters chuckling amongst each other. The food took an eternity to come out. The service atrocious, probably due to underpaid, understaffed foreign crew. What a pity. The restaurant has the perfect location in the old city.

The room was very clean and spacious. The location is great and difficult to beat and it features a great bar with a lovely terrace in summer. The breakfast was more than ok, and the staff very nice and helpful. Finally for the price, I was more than happy, would stay again.

I stayed here for a 2-week business trip in February 2014 (I'm very late reviewing!). The owner is friendly and offers personalized service above and beyond what I've experienced - for example, when he learned that I loved cheese, he would set out a personal cheese plate for my breakfast each morning. My room had been renovated so no complaints... More

The location is good of this hotel and certainly outside it looks great. It is really a very small hotel with a view rooms. The room I got number 3 was a large room. The bed was good but the rest was really poor. A very small bathroom with an interior of decades ago. The whole interior of the room... More

Lovely facade to the building so were slightly disappointed to be shown to a room in a separate annex.Owner and staff very helpful and friendly.

The hotel has a large restaurant on one of the town squares. Our room was fine, rather large for a small Swiss hotel, clean and seemed mostly recently renovated. Wasn't particularly quaint or interesting. The manager works to be helpful. The location is great, and if the price is fine for you, I would say it is worth a try.... More

Such a beautiful property, with amazing staff that were always there to help. The food was amazing and so were the beverages.

We had a wonderful little trip to Schaffhausen thanks to Hotel Zum Sittich. While visiting Schaffhausen's beautiful medieval old town (my favourite in Switzerland), the Rheinfall waterfalls and the Munot fortress, we decided to book this little place thanks to a suggestion form a friend. Great decision. Our double room cost chf 170.00 per night inclusive of breakfast. In a... More

The Sittich is centrally located and comprises 2 cafe / bars at the front, with adjoined converted apartments as the hotel to the rear. The rooms are large but basic, no tea/coffee making facilities and chipboard wardrobes. However they are clean and airy. One issue was the noise from the road (if in a room on that side of the...
