The size of the room The food, especially breakfast
Excellent breakfast , lots of choices and you can have your breakfast in the lovely garden...wonderful Friendly and helpful staff Wonderful and spacious room nice view on the rooftop free chocolate and fruit on the first day you check in user-friendly wifi
quite noisy sometimes in the evening as some children played football nearby
This was an extremely comfortable and well-appointed hotel. The breakfasts were excellent with an amazing amount of choice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had every facility.
Arriving by car we found that parking was very difficult. There are only 3-4 spaces for the hotel itself and no arrangement for parking in the public car park adjacent too the hotel. The hotel staff sorted this out for us but it is a negative factor.
The rooms were very comfortable with lots of nice touches like fruit, robes, a fridge and best of all a kettle to make that all important cuppa! Breakfast was wonderful and the staff were very attentive at all times making sure we had everything we needed. There was even Schwarzwaldtorte for breakfast on the last day! The hotel was located about 10 minutes from the train station; we made full use of the free public transport to explore the area, which makes Gengenbach an excellent base to visit the Black Forest.
Everything! From when we arrived at the hotel we were warmly greeted by friendly staff. Our room was really comfortable and had all the finishing touches to make us feel welcome. From the chocolates,fruit, roses to the towelling robes and slippers! The beds were so comfortable and the showering facilities excellent. The view from our room was magic and lovely to see the storks nesting on the chimneys. We were treated like queens and kings when we dined in the garden on our first evening and the food delicious. The situation of the hotel was walking distance from the train station and shops and variety of restaurants. Just loved our stay in Gengenbach!
The one night we left our window open so of course we found the chiming clock from the church rather disturbing. I would recommend to others rather to put on the aircon than to leave the window open if the chiming disturbs you.
Lack of air conditioning, funny viewing slot from room into toilet/shower
Location, room, ambiance of hotel, rooftop area with amazing views, breakfast was excellent. Restaurant was top class.
Fabulous buffet breakfast taken in the lovely garden. Attentive, friendly staff. Good, central location in a quiet spot off the main street. Comfortable, spacious room (JS). Tea & coffee making facilities.
Great location just off town square. Staff extremely helpful, breakfast excellent, sauna area and relaxation set up really good. Interesting and very nice room due to being part of old building conversion.
Minor issue with soft pillows - and hot doonas which we find a common challenge with German - French Hotels - probably just as Australian thing.
The hotel restaurant is very good. Location is at center of the city. The room is comfortable. Breakfast is good.
excellent restaurant with very good service.
poor room service.
This gem of a boutique hotel overall deserves a 9++ and a 10 for friendliness, kitchen (* in Guide Michelin) and winelist with a.o. excellent local wines thanks to the expertise of co-owner/wife Carmen Hummel. And then this free upgrade to a marvellous junior suite! Thank you both!
Nothing at all; Die Reichsstadt was exceeding all expectations!
Great location, close to town centre with shops and bars
Perhaps could have had some more toiletries in bathroom
My wife and I enjoyed a two night stay at Die Reichsstadt Hotel in the beautiful town of Gengenbach which was oozing with medieval charm. The exterior is old and in keeping with its location (Gengenbach is a picture postcard village) but the interior has been completely modernised. Our room was newly renovated with a contemporary look. The bedroom was large and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was modern, spacious and clean. We were really pleased that there were tea and coffee making facilities in the room (including herbal tea) and a small fridge. We had a very lovely view from our room over the rooftops, past the vineyards to the church on the hill. We have wonderful service and most of the staff spoke excellent english and they were all very helpful. Breakfast offered a good variety of food.You could squeeze your own orange juice or make a vegetable juice. The staff would make you scrambled or fried eggs which were served to us at the table as well as refillable tea and coffee. The train station is just a few minutes walk from the hotel and the little local train goes through the Black Forest one way, and via Offenburg to Strasbourg and to Baden Baden the other way. In Offenburg it is a very simple connection to the fast trains going south to Basel and north to Karlsruhe. So, great food, wonderful accommodation, excellent location for the Black Forest, and a very attractive town. Definitely a gem of a hotel
A really lovely hotel in the perfect location in this medival village.
The room at Die Reichsstadt was spacious, clean and provided all facilities required. The shower room was large and had very good water pressure to provide an excellent experience. The breakfast was expansive with all that you ask for the start of the day. We dined on the open terrace and had an excellent dinner.
Nothing, nothing, nothing.....
Everything, absolutely everything. The staff were exceptional - helpful, courteous and charming. It is the exemplary service of a bygone era or a first class hotel. The rooms were lovely and the restaurant was AMAZING. We dined there twice and it was one of the best meals we have ever had and from two foodies that is not said lightly. Delightful...we miss it already. Do not hesitate... I refuse to believe anyone of any age would not enjoy this hotel.
There is nothing negative that comes to mind.
Excellent location in the center of town, easy walk to everything including the train station, very helpful and friendly staff, free wi-fi, robes & slippers, fresh fruit in the room, best shower on our trip, lovely breakfast included.
Can't really think of anything.
Not a usual chain Hotel. Every room has a unique style. Fantastic feel for combining traditional look with modern interior design. Stylish but functional rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location.

We love this hotel. It is in the heart of Gengenbach yet only 10 minutes walk from the railway station. Gengenback is perfect as a base to visit black forest. And this hotel is perfect in Gengenbach.
The owner is an excellent and creative chef, and he has a wonderful personality.
great hotel with excellent restaurant and wonderful staff. picturesque village with not a lot of tourists.
Parking not so easy.
The couple who run the hotel are lovely. Very friendly and helpful. Another great feature is defintely the terrace where you have the most wonderful breakfast. Hard to beat! The whole hotel has a very luxuxrious ambience.
The room we had had a window between the toilet and the bedroom!! You have to be very familiar to want that......
