Alpenrose was a real surprise, as was Feldkirch. We picked the location because it was a convenient stop on our planned itinerary, but were very plesasntly surprised. The hotel is in an old building the the center of a beautifully restored town from the 1500s. The staff was extremely helpful, although the restaurant which I was looking forward to trying based on the reviews was closed the night we stayed. The rooms were amazing. They appeared to have been professionally decorated and looked like something from a design magazine. Everything was new, modern and spotless. One thing to consider is while our room had huge windows which opened above the terrace, I don't think it had airconditioning, so it might have been a little stuffy in the summer. Breakfast was excellent. The town itself has lots of restaurants of all sorts and prices, so while we missed out on the Alpenrose's own restaurant, we had no problem finding another place for dinner. The historical buildings of the town are also worth exploration.

We are all going through difficult economic times. In this environment it is important to seek out excellent places to stay and eat, without having to compromise too much on quality and service. I just have the place for you. Hotel Alpenrose in the old town of Feldkirch, Austria, near the Swiss and Liechtenstein border. It is a small family-run place, I believe in the 5th generation. The food is very good if you are into good, wholesome home cooking. Do not expect the french tiny, little portion, designed as if they were modern paintings. Good portions of excellent home grown products ,nicely presented on fine china. Try the Austrian red wines! I myself, am a fan of super-tuscans and Brunellos, but lately the Reserves of blaufrankisch grapes have really satisfied.
The rooms are contemporary , and nice. In average 200 sq.feet, very clean, free wifi and LCD TVs. Only that there are very little channels in English. Never mind! As I said, in these difficult times , maybe we should watch less CNN and CNBC and go out more.
For smokers, pls be advised that in lots of bars in Feldkirch smoking is allowed inside, not that I particularly like it.
The Hotel staff is very friendly and accomodative. And all this at prices that are WELL below the ones you will pay over the border (in Liechtenstein or Switzerland).

Well located in centre of old town. We particularly enjoyed dining in the courtyard in front of the hotel and the decor and furnishings inside the hotel. The bedroom and bathroom were really big. Staff were friendly and helpful. A great hotel

It is very rare in this day & age to find somewhere to stay that is a diamond in a sea of overpriced, overhyped accommodation. We stayed at this immaculate hotel in the Old Town of Feldkirch for a week and were sorry we couldn't stay longer. From the instant we pulled up outside the front entrance we were made to feel like part of the family. The hotel is a mixture of old & modern - beautifully kept antique furniture, fittings & decor in the rooms is mixed with the latest clean, up-to-date en-suite bathrooms. Although in the middle of the Old Town it was wonderfully quiet at night. The young staff are extraordinary - anything we needed was promptly delivered. Likewise information on sightseeing, places to eat (the dining room is closed for lunch & dinner on Sunday) the free web access, the parking. The food in the restaurant was especially tasty & plentiful and seemed to be a popular haunt with the locals. The town itself is steeped in history and is a great place to stay to visit Liechtenstein (by local bus), Bregenz & Lindau on Lake Constanz and, if you fancy it, a two hour train trip to Innsbruck.

Visited Feldkirch recently with my husband, found this hotel to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in and we have been to a lot of places all over the world. From stepping through the door, the girls behind reception were friendly and helpful. The hotel is decorated to a very high standard in keeping with the age of the hotel but also with a modern twist. Our room and the whole hotel , bar etc, were very warm and cosy. Bathroom very high standard with very modern fittings etc. Lovely polished furniture and very large comfy bed and really good quality flat screen on which we could even get ITV2. Breakfast - continental was great, laid back and help yourself. Really nice little town, loads of bars and restaurants, all cobbled streets and little alleyways. Lots of high quality shops. Great weekend all round would love to go back in July when there's a jugglers festival, loads of street entertainers from all over world or the wine festival !

This is a charming hotel in the heart of the old city, within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and sights. It is family run; immaculate and welcoming - nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The rooms are clean and comfortable; the restaurant has some of the best food in Feldkirch; reception will help with all arrangements if you are planning to visit other places. Definitely worth staying here if you are in the area and you could use this as a base to visit other places.
