“Best value in Alsace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2009

What can I say? Excellent location, fabulous food. Lowish prices. Sarment D'Or is just off the main sreet in Riquewihr: a good base for exploring Alsace. Parking is included, in a reserved space just outside the town walls (about 200m from the hotel). One can drive to the door to drop off or pick up suitcases, but the town is mostly traffic free. We stayed eight days, and had two different rooms. The first was a simple room, with a double bed. The second room (Hortensia) had a similar bed, but also a lobby area, and a small box rom with a third bed. The extra bedroom was redundant for a couple, but Hortensia has a better bathroom. Neither has a proper shower. The restaurant closed on Sunday evening and all day Monday, so we only had three dinners in Sarment D'Or. It does not specialise in the local cuisine, but Sarment D'Or was the best we found in Riquewihr. There are downsides: no pool, no common sitting area, no bar, and the street outside (Rue du Cerf) can get very noisy around 7am-am on bin collection day, or when supplies are delivered to the hotels on the street.

My wife and I have stayed here at least a dozen times. Sarment D'or is awesome. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are small, but totally awesome. The restaurant is incredible. I have literally seen grown men crying when they couldn't get a reservation at the restaurant. Just order the most expensive fixed price menu and whatever wines they recommend. You will not be disappointed. The staff is good humored and flexible. I once came here from Germany, but, inexplicably, forgot to bring pants. I only had shorts. They were booked for dinner, but set a table up for us in front of the check-in desk at the hotel and we had a great meal. This is the best kept secret in Alsace. I would not stay or eat anywhere else in Riquewihr. Also, some of the rooms are incredibly inexpensive. Lilas (all the rooms are named after different flowers, not numbered) used to cost only 30Euros a night!!

This is a small, apparently family run, hotel in the midst of quaint Riquewihr. As is the case with all the hotels, since Riquewihr is "traffic free" you need to park outside the walls in one of several parking lots and then walk a short distance. You can indeed drive to the hotel to drop off your bags, but this is not made clear from any of the town signage (the hotel told us it would be OK). The lots are fine and only cost 2 Euro for 5 hours, with the time automatically flipping to the next day. We bought five hours at about 5:00 p.m. and the ticket we got from the machine was good until 1:00 p.m. the next afternoon.

The Sarment d'Or is on a side street just off the main street and has a small number of pleasant, inexpensive rooms. Clean and adequate - we had a two level suite on the top floor for under EU100. Do note that there is no elevator.

The real plus of this hotel is the amazing restaurant. Wonderful, reasonably priced, fixed menu items, don't miss the Foie Gras, which is made by the chef himself. Great service, and everything is clearly fresh. You can eat and drink yourselves silly and then just walk upstairs to your room. A real deal is the EU20 fixed menu lunch, which would have been adequate for a dinner. Nice local wine list, ask the server for suggestions and you won't go wrong.

Breakfast was adequate but not a banquet. Coffee, bread and a small plate of cheese/meat that was brought to the table, not a buffet.

All in all, a pleasant stay, nice friendly staff in a sort of "bring your dog and baby to work with you" sort of way. I'd stay there again.

  • Liked — Nice inexpensive hotel with amazing restaurant right downstairs.
  • Disliked — Another european hotel with no real way to take an adequate shower without soaking the entire bath.
  • Tips/Secrets — Its OK to drive to the hotel to drop your bags, after that parking is an inexpensive non-issue
