Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Rheinfels

Rhig. 8, Stein am Rhein, Schaffhausen, 8260, Switzerland Fodor's Choice

Almost every room has a Rhine view at this waterfront landmark, which was built between 1508 and 1517. True to its history, the knight in the stairway greets guests, the floors creak with 16th-century authenticity, and the 150-year-old furniture still helps guests relax in their rooms. The restaurant draws crowds from the area for its freshwater fish dishes; it is closed every Wednesday between September and June.

PROS

  • medieval atmosphere is a thrill
  • people come from miles away for the fish dishes
  • waterfront location

CONS

  • slightly old-fashioned room decor
  • proximity to a busy thoroughfare
  • no reception desk
