We stayed for a weekend (2 nights) in Au Lion in August 2012 in a "maisonette", an under-the-roof room/apartment for 2 adults and 2 kids. Ribeauville is a VERY charming little town in the lovely winelands of Alsace. Staff was quite friendly and room sufficiently spacious for 4 (kids had a little room on their own), but there were a number of drawbacks:
- we could never make the telephone work to get an outside line. On Sunday evening the restaurant is also closed and there was nobody to assist us
- the allegedly "free" wireless internet is rather complicated to set up, the signal is very weak and keeps dropping, and once set up the connection is valid for an hour and then the process needed to be re-started from scratch. As a result, it was practically hardly possible to use internet
- the windows of the room could not be tilted, so the choice was to close them (too hot in an August summer night), or to leave them open, resulting in noisy window-movements created by the wind during the night.
Overall a pleasant stay, but a few nuisances,so be prepared!
