The staff are unerringly polite, helpful and discreet. This charming and historical hotel was the setting of my friend's wedding. Embrace the spirit of yesteryear, steep yourself in its vintage charm and take a stroll along the lake and through the village. This hotel experience would delight those in such of history. Those looking for minimalism and gadgets in their... More

Our stay was in the Waaghaus part of the hotel. The rooms appeared rather dated (yes they are supposed to be antique style, but could use some upgrades.) Cloth wallpaper was beautiful, but could use a cleaning. Very quiet and a good place to spend a restful night. The breakfast buffet at 17 Franks / person was overpriced. It was... More

Everyday they cleaned the room and changed all the linens. The room is spacious. Everybody are friendly, warm and hospitable even the whole community of gottlibien. We really enjoy our stay there. The problem is, you have to walk around 10-15 mins to ride the train.

This hotel is very, like VERY old, and it shows. The rooms look like something from the 70's, but they are clean, spacious and most of them with a scenic view of River Rhine. The buildings look like a castle, and they are situated in the small but lovely city of Gottlieben. Food is typically German = Good, simple and... More

Rooms are pretty old, the bed a little bit too soft. Staff is friendly and the breakfast is super. Considering the area, which is pretty expensive this hotel is not bad, not nothing special neither. The thing I didn't like is that the pictures they use in the website are completely different from the reality.
