Charming hotel in lovely village, conveniently located with modern comforts, affordable, easy free parking nearby, well equipped kitchenette, helpful staff.
It's a very interesting hotel, great having the kitchenette, but otherwise quite basic. I don't know if the restaurant and hotel are closely linked, but we found the service in the restaurant quite sloppy, though the food was quite good.
atmosphere of hotel and village
great location, large room, wonderful scenery in the courtyard buffet breakfast--not enough wait staff, over priced, small selection, no hot food
It was charming and very centrally located There was only one mirror in the room which was in the bathroom and the bathroom was very small
The Courtyard and pool. Hot tub was too cold. Room was chilly to start.
We enjoyed everything about our stay at this hotel. Our room was spacious, clean and decorated with exquisite antique furnishings. The swimming pool was heated. The food at the restaurant was prepared by an excellent chef. The decor of the old style building was absolutely charming as was the entire village.
This is the perfect place. We use it as our home base when are enjoying the Alsace area. It is owned by a wonderful family. They also grow their own grapes and you can taste their amazing wine. On several occasions we have stopped in to taste wine and have been given a lesson on the wines and the French people. we love this place!!
Cozy, clean & fully equipped with mini kitchen. Well worth the money. Good location, close to different villages in the area. Better if they have a shower place rather than just the bath tub.
Nice view on the vineyards and ideally located for visiting the small villages of wine routes.
staff, locations, room size, decoration and cleanness. A real good hotel in a country where hotels are below standards
Transport to and from local restaurants.
This hotel has a central location in the heart of the Alsace region close to all the major villages located on the famous Route des Vins d'Alsace. It is located on a hill in the middle of the vineyards with a beautiful view on the surrounding villages and mountains. Large rooms are very nice and employees are very friendly. I am afraid that I do have the same negative comment as many other reviewers about the beds: the mattresses are very thin and the feather bed cover (couette) is too small, thus not covering the whole bed and body while you sleep.
Very pretty setting and cleverly laid out lodging arrangements. Taking breakfast on the shaded in terrace with a stunning view was particularly enjoyable. Garden and pool also very nice. Rooms/studios roomy and comfortable. Staff very freindly and service minded Two separate beds pushed together does not constitute a large double bed as advertised!! In addition, the mattresses in our room were extremely soft - possibly due to wear. Whilst the general standard of cleanliness was high, the chair in our bedroom was very badly stained and really shold not have been left in the room in that condition.
Peace, quiet and delightful loc.ation; excellent facilities
The hotel chaufre services to excellent restaurants near by in the evening
Great location. Staff were friendly, welcoming, and helpful. There was a "sewage" type smell in the room. Staff tried to perfume it away. It would clear with opening of the windows, but would return.
Rooms were very comfortable, quiet with great views. While large suites were pricey, the size and amenities in the end made the stay good value. Highly recommended, we will visit again.
The best in the hotel are the bed stuff. It miss a restaurant.
Lovely position in the centre of the beautiful town, full of character, breakfast outside in courtyard Room was very hot (no fans or air conditioning) and bedroom furniture a bit 'tired' - needs updating
Proximity and good ambience
The authentic nature of the hotel which is situated in a beautiful medival village.
Location excellent, room was spacious and comfortable.
Very nice location, beautiful city, beautiful old building. The personell was not very friendly. Not a real familyhotel.
The location and the charm and decor of the hotel. It was like a scenes fro a Hansel and Gretel story. We liked it so much we stayed a second night. The reception staff were a little slow to attend and one chap (the bar man from downstairs) was particularly awkward when we mentioned that the light fitting from the shower was left sitting on the toilet.
The charm of the medieval hotel, the way modern conveniences were retro-fitted into the original very old building. Very colorful and friendly. The extra charge for the breakfast was too much, though the breakfast was nicely done.
A hotel and town with a difference! Stepping back in time but retaining modern comforts makes a most refreshing stay.
Good location. Uncomfortable bed.
not a complaint but tea making facilities would have improved things
We had a traditional room on the top floor and it was very comfortable with a modern bathroom, good bed, enough space and a view of Haut Koenigsbourg castle. We did have to climb 3 flights of stairs, which was not a problem for us, but may be for others. Breakfast at 12 E each was too expensive for us, and the nearest alternative is in Selestat.
wonderful, peaceful location along a river smoky reception/lobby area
As soon as we arrived we were make really welcome by the owner. Our room was so romantic overlooking the small river but also well-equipped. The public rooms were so relaxing and truly lovely with an 'honesty' bar. Outside was ample room to relax and enjoy the ambience. Although we didn't eat at the hotel we definitely will next time! The owner made some excellent recommendations of where to eat locally (Maximillian's) and buy wine. This hotel proved to be a perfect stop-over for a couple of nights en route to Italy.
Very friendly staff, they do their utmost. The atmosphere is perfect with country style lobby. The rooms are tidy and clean in the same style like the lobby. Perfect for vacation or to relax a bit after a long business day. You have to book in advance for the dinner, which starts a bit late for my customs: 18:30. The food is quite heavy, which is typical in Alsace as I have experienced. Single menu for taking, or leaving it.
The service and the room was perfect.
A pleasant small hotel that had obviously undergone recent, tasteful, renovation. Homey, quiet garden behind hotel bordered river. Great for afternoon lounging. The innkeeper, also the chef, went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Dinner was the highlight with regional dishes and wines served to ten diners seated at one table.
We loved being out in the country. It was very relaxing to enjoy a drink by the river with newly made French friends. The breakfast and atmosphere were so enjoyable. We ate there one night (need to make reservations) and it was a real treat - food fresh from the market and so delicious. The location was perfect for getting to the wine road and those quaint little towns. Thank you, Stefan, for a wonderful weekend!We will come back.
The style and ambiance of the Hotel was superb and all staff very helpful with a good grasp of English language. The room was superb with a great big bath perfect after 17 hours driving! We were not told that you had to pre order a dinner if you wished to dine at the Hotel but the staff did ring and book an excellent local resturant
Enough Room size and bed. Silent environment and good restaurant near the hotel.
The setting near a river and in a quiet place pleased us. The villages and towns nearby are lovely.
Hotel is situated near the road and has a very nice garden around. Everything was almost perfect.
Everything was perfect. Staff, location, food... Nothing to say. I'd like to stay during the spring or summer time... Perfect position for your visit along Alsace region.
The auberge in itself is lovely and gives a real flavour of Alsace. The restaurant is excellent as is breakfast but prices may not allow for dinner there every night. The staff are kept very busy and although this comes across they are more than friendly and helpful. The rooms vary in size and even having one of the smaller rooms it was percfect for two. The bathrooms are particularly nice with great showers, perfect after a dip in the pool. Would highly recommend for others on the wine route. Entrance to some of the rooms is via buzzer entry which can be disruptive during the night. If a light sleeper avoid room 2.
Friendly service, delicious food, beautiful location, and a very comfortable room.
a truly adorable hotel with friendly staff, superb room, 2 lovely labradors, with the best restaurant we'd had in our 2 weeks' trip in France. Desperately wish to come again. rien
The location of the hotel was perfect for the purpose of our visit, very quiet and the restaurant was a big bonus after a busy day.
This hotel with its perfect design between traditional and modern is a real treat!!! The dinner in the restaurant was excellent at a very reasonable price. For breakfast there was fresh fruit, juice, homemade jam and a choice of bread and croissants, all nicely arranged in baskets on the table. Because I love to sit up in bed to read, I would replace the art picture on the wall with a smaller one.
Hotel De I'llwald is in a great location for touring the Alsace area. The three buildings buildings have been beautifully renovated and our room was large and comfortable with a modern bathroom. The staff were friendly and happy to use English given our limited French. The meals were excellent, both dinner and breakfast are slightly expensive but still recommended.
The comfort and cleanliness of the rooms. The very helpful staff. The location was very nice as well.
Very nice place, beautiful rooms
A charming very French inn with a fabulous location and view of the vineyards, mountains, and nearby castle. The food was gourmet.
this was an overnight stop over travelling from Tuscany to Rotterdam. it was a bed for the night and so we really did not judge it more widely. no complaints though!
the hotel is located in a main spot along the wine rout in a quiet village.the rooms are nicely decorated and large.nice bathroom. the hotel closes everything by 10 pm and there isn't any option for even a cup of coffee.
The location was good. This hotel has a great view too bad that the porch was closed to us so we could not enjoy it. Also there was no staff during the evening so if there was a problem you could not ask for help. Also the tv had a special turn on button which was unknown to us and we were not told how to turn it on.
Friendly and helpful staff. There was no bar. Needed updating/modernizing slightly.
1)friendly service and 2)location (quiet and nice view) even though very friendly, slightly slow service at the restaurant
Very friendly staff, nice buffet breakfast, very clean rooms, pretty architecture. Beautiful location on the Alsace wine road, near historical locations and walking trails.
A very comfortable and friendly hotel. Reception staff were very helpful. Try to get a room overlooking the village with an amazing view of Haut-Koenigsbourg Castle. A bit on the pricey side compared with some other hotels we stayed at in Alsace.
Had a very nice room with balcony overlooking the vineyards and Kronenberg Castle. Dining room was closed Mon. & Tues. nights (low time of the week?) although you could book ahead and reserve for dinner if convenient.
Nice hotel, beautiful location, good service
Wonderful place for staying during the trip on Alsace. Very friendly and attentive staff, nice and clean room. Without any doubts there is hotel with character and kind atmosphere insind.
Hotel is uniquely situated within the old city walls and right next to major pedestrian walking streets. Parking is right next door.
Fantastic service, top location and private parking!
Spacious, calm room with view over the garden/parking lot. Friendly staff, uncomplicated and diligent service. Great location in the middle of the village. A bit difficult to access by car (pedestrian area). The bathroom needed some repairing.
everything about the hotel was o.k. but not more. the receptionpst in the morning was very helpful and kind. the rooms were not convinient for people over 180cm but this is an old house so....
The room was very nice, the location of the hotel is perfect and the guy at the front desk was also very nice. Breakfast was quiet poor.
Central location! The circular stairs were difficult to use; especially with luggage. Hotel staff did not offer to help with carrying luggage up the stairs. Room had very dark wood, very poor lighting and was depressing. We canceled our second night. Bathroom desperately needed remodeling.Hotel photos do not represent the actual rooms!! There was nothing to like about this hotel!
The very central location, the good parking, the ancient romantic style, the helpful staff and the generous breakfast. Due to steep stone stairs in the old house the hotel is not convenient for handicapped people and small children. Help with suitcases should facilitate this problem.
Friendly staff and good central location
Service was absolutely fabulous!!! We arrived close to midnight and were totally tired after driving six hours and also after a minor misstrack when trying to find the hotel. Welcome was awesome! Even though Hotel´s kitchen and restaurant was closed, friendly gentleman saw that we were tired and propably hungry. He offered us very good local onion pie, salad and excellent wine! Rooms were small but comfy and clean. Our price was 49e/night which turned out to be excellent value for money. Will definately stay here when I´m visiting Alsace next time. If you are planning a trip to Alsace car is a must. Our bed was a bumby and actually a bit broken. AC could have been better.
We got two separated beds unstead of one doublebed
Staff were available but did not crowd guests No
The place is great. Great view...
What a perfectly situated hotel in the most adorable village in the Alsace region. We met the most wonderful wood sculptor and his Dad while walking around the village. Pefectly situated for wine country as well as visiting the Haut de Koenigsburg. The dinner and breakfast buffet were superb.
Excellent dinner and breakfast. Helpful staff. Beautiful pool and hot tub. WI-FI weak. Could receive but not send email, tough for business. Thick beach towels would be nice for pool.
Friendly staff nice food
The new pool and leisure facilities are excellent. The hotel would be a great place to unwind for a few days. The room tariffs are high compared with other hotels we used in the Alsace. If there is little or no time to enjoy the facilities (we stayed only one night as part of a walking holiday) it offers poor value for money.
The town where is placed the hotel is very calm. The swimming pool is open at early in the morning and in the evening. The Structure is very clean and very equiped for a 3star hotel. The restaurant is good and very useful for a full total relax.
Helpful staff who even anticipated when WiFi access was required and provided the pass word. Knowledgeable and helpful waiters who made excellent wine recommendations. Evening meals in restaurant were excellent and good value. Breakfast, included in the tariff, was not to the high standard of the evening meals and coffee was ordinary.
Travelling with a child we particularly appreciated the quiet big and well furnished family "suite" (4 beds). The hotel is exceptionally clean, staff very friendly and the breakfast delicious. Decoration with artificial flowers/plants make it look a little old fashioned. Bathrooms are sparkling clean, but could use a ventilation system.
It was in a great setting right in the middle of vineyards. The room was very good unfortunately not able to take advantage of the terrace as it was so hot when we were there. The air conditioning worked fine in the bedroom but the bathroom and toilet were very hot. Great food in their restaurant with beautiful views over the countryside.
Very friendly staff. Well furnished and comfortable rooms. Views of vineyards and valley from terrasse. Nice pool and spa/sauna. Excellent restaurant at reasonable prices. Very relaxing place to stay. Nothing. You do need a car or be reasonably fit since the hotel is located high up in the vinyards.
The view on the Alsatian valley is really remarkable The hotel is over 1 km of hard slope out of the town. It's not a downward, it's a pleasent walk between the vineyards, but without car could be a problem
the service was great and the staff was very helpful. Also if you eat in the dinner is of excellent value and quality.
Serene and beautiful setting. Staff is excellent; they provide specialized attention to your desired travel wants and needs.
Location very good. Swimming pool a good plus. Friendly staff. Good breakfast buffet. N/A
Helpful staff, clean rooms, location Object to paying for gym. Size of comfort room was too small compared with the one we stayed at previously- Room 218 v 206 to 209
It is not often that you get such friendly people working at an hotel in France! So this is worth mentionning it. Everything was nice although the hotel is looking a bit old but nevertheless perfect.
Free internet access. Free Parking. Walking distance to town. Room does not have view. Toilet is so small that if you are tall, you will hit the wall. The front desk is friendly but they refuse to help to change for a room with view of the vineyard.
Although on the edge of the small town it nestles up to the acres of vineyards. Easy stroll into typical picturesque old town. Stylish but comfortable bedroom. Shower room compact but efficient and lots of shelving. Separate little 'lobby' for wardrobe and storage of luggage. Good parking. Breakfast expensive but a lot of choice e.g. variety of cereals, conserves, teas, breads etc
Convenient location. Quiet. Free parking. Pleasant staff. Binders are available with information on restaurants, places to see, things to do, etc. and useful. The evening reception staff has always been friendly and helpful in making dinner reservations and answering questions. This is the third time visiting Best Western Hotel Le Schoenenboug. Limited breakfast items and rather expensive for what is offered. Prefer to have the breakfast price included in the room price vs. a separate charge.
Location and the restaurant next door
location! breakfast was too expensive
All the services that you provided were good and the rooms were large and clean. The bar area was rather small and there was not spare tables at times.
location is perfect, parking very convenient, staff very friendly, surroundings and decor very pretty room very basic, breakfast very basic, both more expensive than they should be
very nice breafast
Good location close to the town of Riquewihr. New flatscreen TV with USB input. Rooms and bedding were fairly dated with uncomfortable linen The bathroom had its issues, including no shower curtain and an unmounted shower head. There were also flies in the room.
Friendly staff and nice swimming pool. Close to city center with walking distance. When we arrived at the hotel before check-in time (around 1:00pm), no staff were in the reception. The hotel location on the map of Booking.com website was wrong and I was confused a little.
Well placed near the town with plenty of parking. Large room, bath small and would go for the 'walk in' shower next time. 10 minute walk into town for dinner.
Nice and clean hotel, the room was quiet.
The staff was very gracious and always available to answer questions. The hotel itself was nice and, of course, Riquewihr is a great place to visit! The hotel was about 1/2 mile from the town center, so a trickier walk with small children, but totally doable for leisurely shopping (and you walk past wine rooms!). We enjoyed the pool at the end of the day and did not partake in breakfast. We had a loft room which was comfortable and air conditioned (wonderful in August!), but the carpet needed to be cleaned. It had a strong smell. This was the only downside.
Very decent clean rooms, close walking distance to the old town.
Good position in easy walking distance of the town. Breakfast OK but not included in room price. Pool OK if a little small.
We came with our four children, we like the way how your hotel make us feel at home even with four lively kids
Nice hotel, friendly staff, nice location just outside Riquewihr, free wifi (but password required)
The location was perfect! The look and feel of the hotel almost felt like a bed and breakfast...a big plus. A very comfortable, friendly environment. Thank you!
The hotel is well-located for exploring that part of Alsace. Riquewihr is only 4km away and you can walk there through the vineyards. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast for a French hotel.
Nice personell; clean, luxury family rooms & good breakfast. Moreover the hotel is well situated to explore South Elzas. In sum, a pleasure to stay
The courteous welcome and offers to provide information on a rainy day were much appreciated as was the assistance with luggage.
Easy to find. Restaurant claimed to have nothing to do with the hotel, and was very expensive. Parking very limited.
Excellent service superb restaurant next door and surrounded by lovely contyside A tad expensive really.
Smart hotel, staff very pleasant and helpful. Hotel on busy road with noisy traffic
The friendliness of the staff The hotel is located on a busy road. Make sure you get a room on the back of the building.
Absolutely gorgeous room! Beautiful wood paneling, spa size marble soaking tub, luxurious carpeting. The staff and buffet breakfast was also very good. We had a room on the main road through this town, which was on the "Alsace Wine Route" and there was alot of traffic noise despite the fact that they had very good quality windows and a/c. Also I am 6 ft tall and the bed we had was too short, my feet stuck off the end. I would reccommend if you stay here and you are sensitive to noise, that you must have a room off the street to be comfortable. If you are tall I'm not sure that other rooms are any better.
very friendly and helpful, clean and new and "old french style" architecture
Riberville is one of the prettiest villages along with many others in the Alsace region-and theHotel de la Tour is in the most perfect location.It is a family run hotel with the owner speaking very good English.We didn't have the breakfasts as there was a superb pattisserie just round the corner where we were able to sit outside- so can't say whether it was good or bad value. We upgraded our room as the one offered was quite dark and small and were fortunate to be able to. Had we been wanting to change the first Sunday in September ( two days after we left) that wouldn't have been possible as there was a fete on in the town and they were expecting 20,000 visitors! There was a small gym with jacuzzi-which my sister and partner used and enjoyed.All in all would thoroughly recommend.
Friendly staff, reasonable price, calm
They gave us a great room with a private entrance. It was like our own little apartment. THe owners were really nice and helpful.
An very good hotelin every way, location, near restaurants and in the centre. I would highly recommend this hotel for the price and the catergory
The kindness of the staff, the order and clearness of the hotel and its central position in Ribeauvillé.
The location was very convenient. No kugelhopf in the morning.
Very centrally located with spacious clean rooms. Free easy wi-fi access. It was impossible to move across the bedroom without the floorboards squeaking very noisily at every step. Our bedroom windows opened on to the central square. With windows open the bells chimed every 15 minutes throughout the night!
The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the city. All the shops and restaurants are walking distance. The staff speaks English and was very helpful and even stayed up late as we arrived after midnight.
Our crib was set up in our room before our arrival. The front desk was extremely kind and helpful in referring us to a yummy restaurant (The Black Horse) for dinner.
The room opened to a beautiful garden terrace with an amazing view of the Route de Vin. Each of our children were charged 7 Euros for breakfst. This seemed overpriced.
Beautiful little place at a good price. Very calm. Close to Ribeauville which is also a beautiful place. Excellent for stay-over on the way to Provence. Cleaning could have been better.
Traditional nature of the hotel, restaurant was very good. Wonderful views acrss the vineyards of Alsace. Reception was a litle confusing as it was across the road in the restaurant.
Very nice and comfortable room in the newly opened annex. Hotel well placed in a quiet village with easy (car) access to nearby villages and wineyards.
on the internetpage it says 24 hrs reception, but apparently they would like to close around 23 h. I checked in at 23:15 h, the room had a temperature of approximate 13°C and the radiator didn't work. the radiator just started working at 7 in the morning, means they automatically cut the power off during the night. even more they don't foresee a room temperature above 15°C, that's extremely poor!!
A very nice place to stay en route. rooms were very clean and well presented. restaurant was very good. only issue was lack of staff available on leaving although this was a minor issue
Athmosphere, food and environment.
The Hotel is situated in one of Alsace's most beautiful villages. The hotel staff are wonderful and made our stay there to a beautiful memory.
Charming hotel with dedicated staff. Food was excellent (dinner and breakfast) and the location was amazing. Worth the stay. Parking is restricted and very limited.
Pleasant hotel in centre of pirotesque village, acceptable price.
The hotel was located in the heart of Ribeuaville and yet it was very quiet. Although not fancy, it was very clean and priced very well for it's location. The bed was confortable as well. no.
The location was charming, inside and out. A lovely stopover and a perfect one-night place during a long car journey. Parking was not easy, but we found a spot--just had to walk a little.
Received by very friendly staff in the newly renovated hotel. Had a double room at a very reasonable rate. Excellent stop over hotel when passing Alsace or for excursions in the region.
The room was nice, clean and comfortable. The bath room was also o.k. The room itself answer very well to our espectations it was difficult to find the hostel. No parking. The breakfast was only from 8:30 and seems expensive (8 euro for a continental breakfast). We had to wait till 8 to leave the hostel (in order to pay for the room and give back the key,
excellent position in beautiful village. Staff welcoming and friendly. Good restaurant Lack of onsite aprking
The rooms are clean and functional for the price. The hotel reception was not open during the dayj which was not mentioned in our booking. We had to wait for them to open at 3 pm. Also, no fault of the hotel but the town bells ring every quarter hour - all day and all night.
good location clean room No staff on duty for most of tuesday and wednesday days check in only available between 2pm-6pm so no one to assist if anything happen during the night.Very rude management on the phone!
Good location in the heart of old town; easy access to shops, restaurants, etc. There are about 4 public parking stalls across the road from the hotel which are always taken; there is no good parking nearby.
A most beautiful town full of historical interest and atmosphere. We will return for a longer visit as soon as possible. Nearby parking was available and free. Toilet/shower room no natural light. Our one bulb failed late at night.It happens! Suggest fitting shaving lights. Latest check-in request at 18.00hrs is unreasonable. Breakfast average.
The hotel lies in a very good location in the beautifull village of Ribeauville. Free parking is available very close tothe hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The hotel personell creates a truly relaxed atmosphere which made our stay very pleasant. The price versus quality is very very good.
Attentive and charming service from the staff, good restaurant (dinner and breakfast), pleasant, immaculate room, excellent bathroom, delightful and restful situation.
