My husband and I currently live a couple of hours from France. Last week, I made a spur of the moment decision to visit Riquewihr for one night. I had heard many great things about Riquewihr and we wanted to pick up some Alsatian wines and cheeses. Because this was a last minute trip, we brought our two dogs with... More

We stayed at this hotel for our annual Europe trip. 4 night stay- just perfect. Great location, renovated rooms, modern and clean. Nice pool. Good breakfast. The staff is incredibly helpful , especially the general manager Mathias Striebel. Great location to explore the small towns nearby or to bike ride thru the vineyards- which we did.

Several rooms need to be renowated. Beds great but old fashion ugly carpet in the room. Great location for the Hotel on the Alsace vine road. Good parking but difficult for sportscar to entering upper level due to step drain can crushed your spoiler easy. Quite expensive for what you get.

A good basic modern hotel which fits nicely into the landscape. A great location just outside the village. Very pleasant and helpful service. I would recommend this for car drivers since in many of these small villages parking can be challenging. This hotel has free parking outside and also a garage for which they charge a small amount.

Stayed here for one night during traveling the route du vin. The location is next to the vineyard but a bit outside the center. The room was a bit small but modern and clean. The bathroom was really nice. So for one night it is the best choice in Riquewihr.

I had a great stay on my one night in France. The staff were very helpful and spoke perfect English, which normally isn't a factor for me but helps when you have been on the plan overnight and then driven for 2 hours. My room was larger than expected and the windows opened to lovely views of the neighboring vineyard.... More
