I was actually quite surprised to find a little gem of such quality in a remote corner of Alsace. The only negative comment I have about this hotel is that at 22 Euros, the breakfast is unreasonably expensive for the quality and limited choice which one gets.

" Charming town, charming courtyard, out of touch."
We stayed here three nights in early August. Temperatures were a bit warm during the day, and the only A/C was an open window and a small fan that usually provided enough cooling. But, it allowed lots of bugs to come in our room.
I had booked weeks in advance and did not remember that breakfast was not included, so when hotel staff directed us to the dining room each morning, I assumed it was part of the stay. When we settled our bill, we found out that breakfast was an additional. So, it cost us an extra120 euros (about $180 at that time.) Had that been made clear, we would have preferred to go into town for better pastries and more choices.
We had a terrible time with internet service. We had to sign in constantly, and service was s---l---o---w! Occasionally, the connection was nonexistent. The hotel is aware of this problem, as they gave us another code that was a little better. But people rely on internet to stay in touch with important business, and the hotel needs to do something to fix this problem.
The "king" bed was two twins stuck together, as is so often the case in Europe. We even were supplied with two twin size comforters, rather than a king duvet that would have covered the entire bed.
Also, there were dusty silk flowers all through the hotel. Ironically, beautiful fresh flowers were growing everywhere outside. Too bad they don't ditch the faux ones and bring in a few fresh from the garden. They would have added so much to the ambience.

"Nice hotel, quiet street close to centre of town"
Very helpful and friendly staff. English not perfect but certainly good enough. We stayed 5 nights, and would not hesitate to stay again if we were in that area. If you need anything just ask (we were going to a wedding and needed an iron / ironing board.). No evening meals but lots of places to eat nearby, 5 mins walk. Recommend the Petit Casserole and Suzette's. At weekends you need a code for the front door if you were out after 11pm, remember to pick it up from reception through the day. If you have a try at speaking French, even if you are not very good, people really appreciate it.

A nice hotel with large room. It is clean, modern, with a mini-bar and Internet. It deserves easily four stars. But two things we did not like :
First of all, a bathroom without a hook to attach the shower head... Not very convenient to enjoy your shower.
Second, a permanent buzz coming from the electricity box.... Really enjoying at night when it is time to sleep well...
