Hotel & Restaurant Alte Rheinmuhle
Reviewed June 29, 2012

This is really a charming hotel -- an old mill on the Rhine, transformed into an intimate hotel with original details and a lot of character. It's a great combination of traditional details with modern amenities and conveniences. The service at the hotel is outstanding -- the staff really pay attention to the details and seem to genuinely enjoy what they do.

As we were at the hotel for a training seminar, we had all our meals at the restaurant, and the food was outstanding! I would recommend going to the restaurant even if you're not staying at the hotel. Breakfast doesn't have a big selection, but the quality of everything is the best. Cheeses, cold cuts, breads, even the wild honey -- everything was fantastic. Lunch and dinner were great as well, with very high quality trout, beef, veal, rabbit, prawns etc. Everything seemed super fresh and was deliciously prepared.

The only reason I don't give the hotel the top rating is the mattress felt very old -- not too soft, but as if it was used to the point of losing it's ability to support. Also there are minor issues, such as the towels being rough and the toiletries being of low quality. I would still absolutely recommend going to the Alte Rheinmuhle though, and am looking forward to going back!

A real nice transformation of an old mill into a romantic first class hote with all modern comfort.
All rooms are different with a touch of history. Nice, well equiped bathrooms.
Very clean. Excellent and friendly staff, speaking several languages.
Exquisite restaurant with view over the Rhine. Fine food and wines, perfect service.

Room Tip: try on of the suites...

I have been there twice on business and i found the staff at reception very helpful and courteouos always willing to help as well as the room spacious and comfortable. There is WIfi available in lobby, restaurant as well as in rooms.
The location is unbelievable literarly on the Rhein river which offers a prime location for evening dinner or morning breakfast. Overall I found the hotel very quiet and relaxing. I beleive it is a good alternative to other major chains if you are in the area. It is about 4 miles away so a 10 minute drive from Schaffausen main industrial estate.
Note that sometimes GPS do not recognize the Swiss post code they give you so you have to enter their German postcode that they will give you if you call. It seems that the town is half on Germany and half in Switzerland!
Also the food for Dinner and breakfast is very good and the atmosphere relaxed and very cosi, even if you are dinning by yourself.
Overall a great hotel whether you go on holidya or business in the area. Pricewise it is comparable to any other Swiss hotel for the same category but offers a personalized service and you truly feel welcome.

I was at the Alte Rheinmuehle during a business convention. The place itself is quite unique, wonderful view on the river, nice restaurant, rooms with old furniture. I was quite lucky as I was given what I suppose should be the suite: a room on two levels with a huge living room.
Service overall good. Only complaint: not a wide choise at the breakfast buffet, but the quality of food was above average for sure.

It is so nice I don't know where to start.
Dating from the 1600's the building looks like a classic staging medieval guest house with Tudor style beams and stucco. The rooms and bathrooms are refitted to a very high standard.

The setting is right on the north side of the Rhine five kilometers east of the town of Schaffhausen or nine kilometers east of the Rhinefall, water fall .

Ask for a corner room with huge oak beams, two sitting areas, large marble bathroom, and loft bed room, these rooms over look the river.

Magnificent restaurant and breakfast room the entire length of the building have 24 inch oak beams and stone columns with window seats and flower boxes in front of every window. Full European/Swiss breakfast with homemade breads, rolls, and coffee cakes.

The loudest noise here are the birds on the river.
