Amazing fusion food. Great service. Spacious bedrooms & bathrooms. Boutique luxury on the banks of the Rhine river. I would like to come back in spring or summer to take advantage of the beautiful outdoor terrace.

Nice, but very expensive. Not worth the extra for me. Stayed one night then switched to cheaper hotel which was more central and also very nice. Couldn't get non-feather pillows which seems strange - I was asked to book them in advance in future.

We loved our stay at the Rheinhotel Fischerzunft. The bedroom was very European - style, with a large bathroom, and a drawing room area -- and beautiful view of the Rhine and people walking along the footpath. The breakfast was sumptuous, and fresh, and the service was spectacular, friendly, and accommodating. We walked the path to the RhineFalls, it was... More

Fame attracts high expectations - some were met but there is room for improvement. The food is very special and close to the highest level enjoyed in only a select few restaurants in Switzerland. Service is impeccable and guests are treated royally. The (regular room not a suite) was small but the bathroom was up to the highest standards. What... More

We spent to lovely nights in this hotel. We had a junior suite which was quite large by European standards. This is family owned hotel with only 10 rooms. The whole feel of the family ownership pervades the experience. You are treated much more like a guest in a private home that as a paying customer. The staff is friendly... More

My wife and I just visited the Fischerzunft last evening and had wonderful experience. The location, ambience, furnishings, and comfort of our hotel room were exceptional. The mix of traditional decor with a notable eclectic Asian theme throughout the hotel added to our enjoyment. Cocktails fireside, followed by a truly special dining experience made the visit complete. We recommend the... More

We just had the pleasure of spending 4 nights at the Fischerzunft in one of the junior suites. The hotel has so much charm and a very homey feeling to it. All the décor is picked with such detail and love that is just makes you feel so welcome. Our suite was overlooking the Rhine and was very nice. Everything... More

What an incredible experience, a very intimate hotel with a real family feel. I read one report on trip advisor that the rooms were tired so they must have refurbished, as our room was wonderfully furnished with a great view of the Rhine. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff that went out of their way to anticipate our... More

We just stayed at the hotel in July and had a top floor double room with view of the river. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive offering tourist info, directions, and a very nice breakfast. The room was spacious and immaculate with seating area and large plate of fresh fruit and chocolates. I was worried about possible noise and... More

I'm pretty sure the only people who stay here also dine here because it's the restaurant that's great, not the "hotel." There are only a few rooms and while some of them have nice views across the Rhein, their decor is very dated and unattractive. I'm guessing they were last renovated in the early to mid-80's, though it might have... More
