“Reliable well positioned Best Western”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is a modern hotel, very well placed to explore lovely Riquewihr by foot, with plenty of car parking. The bedrooms are big and well appointed. The hotel did not appear to serve dinner, but there were plenty of restaurants close by in the town. Breakfast was pretty good, though was not included in the room price and was charged as an extra.

Room Tip: Rooms are both front and back of this hotel. At the front you look at the town and outdoor swimming...

Just spent 3 days at this hotel and it was fantastic. In an ideal location for just wandering into Riquewihr, just a few minutes, where the choice of places to eat is extensive. Lovely views over the vineyards and really helpful staff how have a wide range of languages. Rooms large and comfortable, parking and a pool and sauna should the mode take you. It is also virtually slap bang in the middle of the wine route for Alsace so really easy for days out to explore the many wine tasting and picturesque villages located near by. Would thoroughly recommend.

Very surprised by this up market Best Western. Lovely room and en suite. Coffee/tea making facilities. Excellent breakfast and a good bar. Pool looks great but the weather was too cold to try it. Lovely location as only 2-3 mins walk into the lovely town of Riquewihr.
Helpful and friendly staff. Plenty of parking including secure parking (8 euros per night) if required.

Clean, efficient, well-positioned. Helpful staff. Excellent breakfast but restaurant closed for vacation! Easy parking within own gated grounds. Room starting to look a little tired: stuffy and air-conditioning ineffective.

Riqhewhir is a beautiful little village surrounded by vineyards. The Best Western hotel is just outside of the original town walls and is really easy to drive to and park. A five minute walk will have you on the Main Street of the old town.

Check in was easy, our booking was online via Hotelclub.com.
Our room was standard layout and feature for a chain hotel. Clean and comfortable with a bottle of water supplied, tea and coffee facilities, standard Tv channels and Wifi.  The free wifi is really only good for emails and won't stream downloads or movies.

On our second morning we used the in house breakfast bar (12.50€). This was a good, healthy and fresh range of French pastries, fruits, jams, juices and a coffee machine. Good start to the day at a reasonable price.

Riqhewhir itself felt a bit too touristy to me and I would prefer next time to stay at egshhiem or somewhere similar.

I would always prefer to stay somewhere a bit more personal such as a boutique or BnB but we made the right choice by staying at this hotel even if only for the convenience of easy location, familiarity /security and parking.

Spent 2 nights in the BW Schoenenbourg. Rooms are clean and comfortable although simply furnished. The hotel has ample private parking and is well situated to explore Alsace from. The staff here were excellent. Genuinely friendly and very helpful at all times, the best service I encountered on this trip.

However Riquewihr has been ruined by mass tourism. A once beautiful village now resembles a grotesque theme park. This is not the fault of the hotel of course. Do not let it put you off as it is situated within a few km of several Alsace villages worth visiting.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

We stayed en-route from the Italian Lakes and wished we could have had a week! The rooms have beautiful views of the vines and the village. Riquewihr is simply breathtaking, as is the Cremant D'Alsace (especially from Dopff & Irion). The staff at the hotel, the check in, check out, the breakfast, all first class. Definitely going back!
