This hotel was just perfect. Literally opposite the train station, but you wouldn’t know it as it is super peaceful once inside. Don’t be fooled by the plain facade, once through the doors you experience the full range of Swiss efficiency and excellent facilities of the hotel. We stayed for 5 nights and couldn’t find a fault in anything. Our bedroom was very spacious, we even had a walk-in wardrobe! Well-appointed with everything from a Nespresso coffee machine to iron and ironing board, and heaps of TV channels including 6 UK ones; our twin beds were super comfortable, though pillows were on the soft side - tried the ‘pillow menu’ and ordered the millet filled ones which were delivered to the room in minutes. Love the huge bathroom with sweet smelling herbal toiletries, generous hot water at all times, dressing gowns and slippers provided, towels were quite huge and thick (I brought my own sports quick drying one). Very pleasant room temperature with reliable airconditioner was a godsend during the heatwave. And the breakfast is superb - really, best breakfast buffet ever! Great range of warm and cold options (the bacon is amazingly good - we went back for 2nds every day), the bread range was fantastic, so fresh (loved the multigrain loaves), the soft-boiled eggs perfectly done - soft and creamy, yumm! Excellent coffee which you make yourself from a coffee machine (I like my double espresso) and many healthy options like bircher muesli, large range of yoghurt flavours, fresh fruit juice etc. The friendly staff kept the selection topped up quickly). A special mention goes to the fitness facility on the 5th floor, it is one of the nicer ones I've seen in many European hotels, well-cared for, it had a good range of equipment: one each of treadmill, stationary bike, recliner bike, crossfit, weights - all new and hardly used ha ha if only guests knew of the fantastic view of the Munot fortress from the treadmill!). Best of all is the location, it is so easy to hop on a bus or train to visit nearby sites like the Rhinefalls and even Zurich! No need to trudge distances to the station, you literally just cross the street. Lots of dining options in the Old Town which is just around the corner from the hotel (best route is turn left as you get out, walk a few meters past the post office then left again and old glorious Schaffhausen town is right there at your leisure).
We really like this hotel, best value hotel ever, we’d happily stay here again next time we are in the area. less
