“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Everything about the stay was essentially perfect. Paula let us drop our bags off well before check in. The room (Alsace Room) far exceeded expectations. Balcony, fireplace, perfect shower, freshly baked peach muffins, well stocked fridge, free drinks at the bar, perfect location. Met the owners at The Bank and they were gracious, accommodating, and very interested in any feedback we could give them to further improve an already special place. I am a little afraid to write this review, as it might make it harder for us to stay next time!
Caveat: There is no TV. If this is a problem for you, then you are looking at the wrong place altogether.

I agree with other reviewers that the website pictures do not do justice to Schiller Guest Suites. We stayed in the Alsace Suite, and I also had a chance to glimpse the Library. Both are luxurious and tastefully decorated. Innkeeper Paula, who was wonderful in every regard, set us up with excellent breakfasts that we could cook at our leisure. Schiller was a perfect solution for our party, who did not want a plain hotel but did not want the social, non-private nature of a traditional B&B. Staying at the Alsace Suite was like having one's own private, beautiful, historic apartment in downtown Hermann. And to top it off, the cost was far more reasonable than many other hotels/B&Bs in the area. I highly recommend staying here.

It was our first time to Hermann. We rode the train in from KC. A short two block walk from the train station, and, viola!, we had arrived at Schiller Guest Suites. The delightful inn keeper, Paula, met at us there. It was Sunday night, so the Bank Bar was closed, but we had a wonderful repast of wine, cheese, artichoke dip and crackers waiting for us in the suite. We stayed in the Alsace, and our dear friends stayed in the Library. We so enjoyed the balcony and tables to sit, visit, sip wine from local vineyards...so relaxing! There are kitchenettes with stove, microwave,refrigerator, toaster, and coffeemaker. The Suites provide breakfast fixings( eggs, juice, baked goods, oatmeal, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and the like,and a grocery store is just around the corner on 1st St. It was excellent! No tv, peaceful...can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: All three suites are unique!

With this being my first visit to Hermann, Missouri, everything was net-new territory, inclusive of our lodging selection. I could not be more pleased that we chose the Schiller Guest Suites as our B&B homebase for our weekend wine getaway!

We stayed in the Library Suite which was more than spacious - patio access, a huge living room for relaxing, very romantic bed room, and fantastic wash-room. The kitchen was stocked wtih yogurt, homemade pumpkin bread, frozen omelets (actually delicious!), Perrier water, orange juice and coffee. There was no television, which enabled us to disconnect and enjoy a true weekend away. Though we did not use it, there was internet connectivity and a radio with iPod connection capability.

The Bank Bar on the main level of the property also offers a very convenient location to grab a bite or drink before venturing out to other local establishments in the evening.

I cannot compliment Paula enough for her communication and care with our reservation. From the intial contact to our departure, she took extra measures to ensure we had everything we needed for a wonderful experience. She even coordinated, upon request, having flowers in the room for our arrival.

This level of service, combined with the quaintness of the property, leaves no doubt that we will be booking again. The Schiller Guest Suites is the PERFECT homebase for a weekend wine getaway in Hermann!!!

We visit Hermann every year for Octoberfest and have stayed here the last 2 years. The rooms are nicely furnished and beds are comfortable. This place is located far enough from the train tracks that you should be able to sleep through the nights trains. If you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs! The whole reason we stay here is the great covered deck outside the 2 rooms on the second floor. We rent both rooms with another couple and can then sit outside at night as long as we went. There is an outlet to plug in an IPod dock. There are lights strung up outside too. People have written on chalk on the bricks too.
The breakfast is not our style. We do not eat it. We like the traditional B & B homemade hot breakfast. We just go out in town for something in the morning. The little diner on the main drag closed so there are not many options for breakfast. You could alway bring something to make as there is a full kitchen.
B & B is on top of a bar. We have not stayed on a night when the bar is open so I am not sure if that is noisy in the rooms are not. Would recommend going to Simon's on the waterfront and Wings a Blazin to eat. There is a bar right to the side of B & B. Location is within walking distance to Hermannhoff winery and Tin Mill brewery. You could walk from the Amtrak station too, maybe blocks away. There is also a trolley that picks up in town at set locations and will also set rides up door to door. No drinking and driving in town!!!

Thank you for your review! The balcony, with its relaxing breezes in the summertime and great views of Hermann are a real surprise to most first time guests. Year round guests always catch the changing landscape from this private world just outside their suite.
Another great stop is the Bank Bar. Convenient to grab a little something just down the stairs from the suites. Besides the wonderful martinis, wines, and beer, we offer great food items such as our Small Batch Chili, Bank Bar SpinArt Dip, Artisan Pickled Eggs, and Pizza.
Hope your next stay, we can accommodate you at the Bar as well.
Thanks again, your stay at Schiller and review!

We spent our first wedding anniversary in Hermann, MO at the Schiller Suites in the Library Suite and we LOVED it! I am VERY picky about hotels/B&B's, etc, and this place was perfect. For one thing it was spic and span - could not have been cleaner. It had all of the character of old, but everything was new and worked. The Library Suite is large, and has a back entrance, so it feels like your own personal apartment. The outside deck gets nice sun in the morning. I preferred this much more than a typical B&B because it felt younger, more modern and more private. Suite came with fruit, orange juice, yogurt, granola, eggs, etc.. so you can make your own breakfast. Also, there is a very nice bar downstairs (called the Bank?) with a patio and good appetizers. I did not want to leave, and this is the only place I will ever want to stay in Hermann!

My best friend and I were looking to escape for a ‘girls only’ weekend and we were thrilled with our choice of Schiller Guest Suites. The building and room were incredible and the location was perfect! We were easily able to walk downtown for shopping, trolley access, the riverfront, dining and drinks. Not only was the location great, but the Library Suite was truly beautiful and very spacious. It was adorned with a cozy fireplace, small library, comfy couch, and a large, luxurious bed. The personal touches, including homemade muffins, drawing pads with colored pencils, fresh flowers, a wine and cheese platter, and beautiful paintings by local artists, made the room feel quaint and homey. The room was also exceptionally clean. I can't wait to come back for another visit very soon!
