Very special due to the fact it's kept the original style of building with wood and parts of old walls, which was renovated not losing the charm. Location is excellent and staff very firendly. I stayed only one night at a conference with my company, but I would recommend it even for longer stay.

I stayed one night with my parents here for touristic reasons. All of us felt very comfortable during the stay. If I have to highlight something, then I'd choose the atmosphere and the fact, that the impression, the websites try to give you about the hotel were true. The bathroom was not too large - but large enough. Good breaktfast,...

We stay 2 nights in this hôtel. Room was clean, very nice (wood glass metal and stone mix), and breakfast was delicious. I forgot my glasses in a restaurant closed to the hôtel. Of course I realized it while driving back to home. The hôtel staff picked it up for me, and send it back to me. Really a 5*...

Nice quirky hotel in the centre of Schaffhausen with equally quirky rooms (you can't be too tall in some of them) The self service bar takes some getting used to (and clearly some people got far too used to it, but don't worry, we added all your little 'extras' afterwards, even if you did 'forget' :)) Service and rooms overall...

Excellent location, next to the rail station, to the old city and the Rhine falls. Old building and some of the rooms have low accessibility. During the summer important to make sure you get air conditioned room. Otherwise, the small window is not enough to remove the heat. Free WiFi and fair price. Gets you really into the medieval times.
