Arriving in Riquewihr after a day of touring the Alsace wine region, this was an impulse stop without a prior reservation. Requewihr is a charming medieval town and the l'Oriel is located 20 meters from roadside parking, inside the old city walls. The desk staff negotiated a fair rate for the room, and was helpful about recommending how to arrange parking and meals.*
The hotel is modern and well appointed in the public areas, more traditional in the rooms. There are elevators to the upper floors, but stairs along the hallways and narrow around the courtyard that may be difficult for disabled guests. The room was warm and cozy, on two levels with a lower sitting area and bathroom and a loft with the king bed. There is French / German television, minibar, and free wireless internet, The bathroom has a stall shower with modest pressure and good hot water. The windows and skylights provide ventilation, the neighborhood was quiet through the morning.*
A buffet breakfast is served with breads, cereals, juices, meats, and cheeses, but 11 euro each seemed high. The cafe near the Hotel de VIlle may be a better alternative.*
This is a cozy and traditional inn with a very good location and a lot of charm.
