Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We enjoyed our stay in Hotel Rheinfels on a EV6 cycle trip. Our room was very spacious and comfortable with an old world charm. The bathroom was very modern. Location is ideal being on the Rhine and in the centre on town. It is only a 15 min walk to the strandbad for a refreshing swim in the crystal clear Rhine. Bike storage was in the rear of the hotel in a storage room accessible from a side road. Unfortunately we were unable to eat in the restaurant as it is closed on Wednesdays depending on the time of year. This doesn’t appear to be mentioned on booking websites but it is clearly stated on the Rheinfels website. You should check this if eating in the hotels restaurant is important to you, as the menu and setting look great. Overall a relaxing stay in a very picturesque town.

We stayed in character filled Hotel Rheinfels in a room with a beautiful view and breeze from the river. Even better was the fantastic meal we enjoyed in the restaurant perched on the edge of the Rhein. Highly recommend the Crunchy Rosso Salad and Pike-Perch a la Rheinfels. Service was also exceptional. An amazing experience in a very special place.

This breathtakingly charming hotel, located in a building dating from 1525, is ideal for a stay in Stein am Rhein. With a restaurant terrace that actually extends over the Rhine and lovely rooms with beamed ceilings yet with all the expected amenities, the hotel is a veritable wonder. On a more mundane level, the bottled water in the room fridge is free, the beds are comfortable, and the cuisine at the restaurant, whose specialty is locally sourced perch (I recommend the perch (Egli) braised in butter), is most excellent. A bonus is that from the terrace you can feed ducks & swans and marvel at the fearless local youths who leap from the bridge into the Rhine and insouciantly float by your table. The hotel is also a mere handful of steps from the entrance to the town square, the painted facades of whose buildings will enthrall even the most jaded visitor. I am pleased to recommend the Hotel Rheinfels without equivocation.

We spent 2 nights in this beautiful medieval hotel and had a great stay. Our room overlooked the river and was clean, comfortable and quiet with a very nice modern shower room. We were happy to fond soap dispensers for basin and shower rather than non eco friendly plastic bottles. A table fan was in the room as well as several lamps, as obviously in a 14th century building the rooms are quite dark. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good and the filets de perches in herb butter sauce we had one evening were delicious. The location is ideal, right in the delightful historic centre

Stayed in Hotel Rheinfels for one night. Stayed in room 38 on 3rd floor. Hotel and Room old world and oozing with character. One of our favourite hotels of our 10 night trip around Switzerland. Hotel does not have parking but there is public (Paid) parking directly opposite hotel. Didn’t eat in hotel but they have fab decking area overlooking the river. Breakfast was good in lovely Breakfast room. Hotel is centrally located with a 2 min walk into Stein Am Rhein which is a beautiful town and also a short walk to the various restaurants down on the River. Highly recommended especially those who love a hotel full of old world charm and character but with modern comforts.

We've been on a 3 week train journey through Switzerland and this is by far the worst hotel we stayed at. I'd give it a 0 if I could!! Yes, we know Switzerland is expensive, but we just came from St Moritz which is known for being one of the most expensive places here and we had wonderful room in Hotel Soldanella which was also an old building, but the difference between that hotel and this is night and day. There is nothing nice about this place! We stayed in room 25 which overlooks the river (view is ok), but the room is depressing and dark with lightbulbs that are deliberately dim, so one wonders how in the world can the maids see to clean this place. The bathroom is something else... small and dark with no place to hang your clothes or towels except one little towel rack, the shower has no light in it and has a torn plastic shower curtain Ugh, ugh!! No shelves for storage! There are no toiletries, just a tacky soap dispenser on the wall. And for this they have the nerve to charge around $200 per night!!!! Compare this to the Soldanella in pricey St Moritz which charged us less money per night with a balcony and lake view and is beautifully furnished with a spacious and well lit bathroom with plenty of space for storage. Big, gorgeous rain shower with jets on sides and fixtures from Villeroy & Bosch. Both these hotels are old but that doesn't mean it has to look run down as the Soldanella clearly illustrates! Old can also be elegant and well maintained! The owners of this hotel should spend one night in it so they can see what's lacking, like some storage space and hooks in the bathroom, better lighting all around, a blow dryer that doesn't weigh a ton, some nice toiletries, toilet paper that doesn't feel like sandpaper, loose the tacky, torn plastic shoer curtain, etc, etc! They also need to do a complete overhaul of their rooms, so they don't look so depressing! There is nothing charming or quaint about this hotel, it's just tired and old due to not having been well maintained!

Second time for us and it was our wedding anniversary celebration... we had a river view room which was lovely ... the restaurant service is exemplary with a varied menu ... famous for its fish dishes which I would recommend... breakfast is the weakest link compared to other places it fulfils everything without any inspiration .... rooms are traditional and the river views spectacular

I spent one day with my family in this hotel. I cannot complain about the location, it is simply great. The facility is in line with the town, which means, it looks and feels old, and I really liked that. However, I think you can still keep the “old feeling” while creating a good experience. I would never recommend to make the hotel look new, that would ruin the experience. But I would recommend to: have a proper front desk (you literally check in and out in the kitchen), installing more electrical outlets in the room (we were not able to charge our devices at the same time), installing air conditioning (this could be too much), having someone who understand basic english at the front desk (we had communication challenges), ...

Yes it is rather dark in the staircase and on the landings that are full of old pieces of furniture.and there is no elevator and no Hilton feeling. Very friendly and efficient check in. Good breakfast and spacious rooms on the 2nd floor. I would give 5*s were it not for the traffic on the bridge and the 7 a.m. construction noise on the other side of the bridge the day we were there

Fabulous time. The hotel is so darling and quaint. The staff was the most gracious and accommodating. River view was just so peaceful. Can't say enough about this place. The the 14th century bldgs and the shops just around the corner we were just in awe.
