Best Western Plus Hotel Bahnhof

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is in an excellent location, so near to old city and to the Rhine falls. The breakfast spread was superb and so many choices that cannot be found in most hotels in Europe. Elena who works the afternoon front office shift is super helpful and friendly. She made a difference to my stay at the hotel.

We researched this hotel quite a bit and were surprised how highly it was rated everywhere. We have stayed at hotels near train stations before and most of the time they are basically OK. Well this hotel deserves the ratings it gets. The location is perfect if you come by train and it is right on the edge of the old city. The rooms are spacious for a city hotel, wifi actually works well, and breakfast is quite good. We would certainly stay again and recommend it to anyone.

It is located conveniently just across street from train station where the major bus routes have the stops to take you to anywhere of entire Schaffhausen including to the famous Rhine Fall. The old town is right behind the hotel and Rhine is just near by, and there are loads of shops and restaurants for the convenience of stay. We were being kindly up graded to a superior room which is a kind of corner room on the top floor, bright, clean and simple, pleasantly comfortable Swiss type. The room also with aircon that is definitely an extra luxurious enjoyment at northern area of the country in a warm and muggy summer day. No issues of beds and pillows as well as mattress support which allowed us to have solid sleeps. The bathroom could be called huge in the comparison to other hotels we stayed in about our two-week travelling in Swissland, water pressure and temperature steadiness both were good and their herbs toiletries we just loved. The breakfasts included with room were superb many items to choose from like the variety of cold cuts, different ways cooked eggs, freshly baked breads and pastries, juices and that mamzing cappucino coffee machine could make all kinds taste of coffee you wanted. Their croissants and smoke salmoes were surprisingly good that we had never tasted at any breakfast in our woldwide travels for years, of which was so crunchy outside soft layers inside and the meat texture so rich and oily but not salty so yummy, we had missed them since then. Check-in and out went through smoothly without any problem, the young ladies Andrea at front desk and Dominique in the breakfast room we met were outstanding, both helpful, attentive and accommodating who are the great staffs of the hotel. Would stay again without hesitation if to be in Schaffhausen.

Room was great, very clean and shower the best I have so far in Europe! Breakfast was great. Staff very friendly and helpful especially when I needed a Swiss power adaptor! Parking was ok... expensive but they let you park out the front to load your luggage and then you can park down the road at an outdoor parking area per hour. Schaffhausen is a little hidden gem..... I would never have come here if it wasn't for Lonely Planet recommending it. Lovely little town. The hotel has a great map with a walking tour marked on it.

Very good Hotel, a bit overprized Close to Shops Close to old town Coffe Maschine free in room with coffee/Tea very large Breakfast buffet with fresh fruits etc. Many newspapers to read Reception are a bit awkwad with steep ramp I liked the black and White old Posters/Photographs on the walls in the coridors/rooms

Typical Business hotel. Very friendly staff, very good breakfast. I have been there already several times and it has always been absolutely clean. Location against Railway station is perfect - without any disturbing sounds during night.

We have flown out of ZRH dozens of times. Sometimes stay at Kloten, but prices are high there (even for Switz) and A/C hard to find at a reasonable price. Tried Schaffhausen this time and can highly recommend the BW Bahnhof. Our relatively large room and bathroom were business-like functional. Most importantly, the A/C was great. Room was dead silent and cool even though facing the Bahnhof and with outside temperatures of 90 plus. And with windows closed throughout the building there is an added bonus, no flies! (often a curse while eating, sleeping etc. in Europe in the summer). Breakfast was quite good with the usual extensive assortment of cheeses, meats, eggs, rolls, etc. Staff was very helpful, for example arranging carry-out coffee and rolls because we left early on the last day. The train is literally across the street and takes 45 minutes and 25 SFr to the airport, in other words only slightly more than from Zurich. As for the city of Schaffhausen, it is well worth a visit of a day or two. Though its surroundings are not as impresive as the more touristed cities (no giant peaks or impressive lake etc.) the old town is extensive and quite interesting. Lots of good restaurants too. The hotel is very convenient to the town. Though European Bahnhofs sometimes attract unusual people, the station at the relatively small town of Schaffhausen seemed relatively quiet and safe.

It was our first time in town. All the staff was so warm and nice with us at our arrival. Since we came earlier than expected, they kindly offered us to drop off our lagguages and car. After visiting the town, we have got a great surprise by getting a room upgrade to a suite. Excellent service and great hospitality, very comfortable. Nice experience.

Old hotel that has been tastefully modernised. Very convenient for transport links. Comfortable spacious bedroom with pillow menu. Excellent shower. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. The breakfast choice was limited but freshly prepared. Very near to river Rhine and there is a footpath along the river which leads directly to one of the main local landmarks- the Rheinfall,the largest waterfall in Europe. This takes about an hour. Local buses also pass near to the Rheinfall

We stayed here for two nights at the start of our trip round central Europe. This hotel - as you might expect from the name - is situated ideally for local transport links. There are issues with the location which I will cover later in the review. This is an old hotel that has been modernised, so that interior is very modern, and almost indistinguishable from thousands of similar establishments across the world. The WiFi is excellent, the breakfast is very good, and the staff are friendly and efficient. Our room on the top floor was perfectly clean, very big, with a rooftop view across the back of the building. The room had a Nespresso machine - great for coffee, but - hoteliers take note - dreadful for tea, as it does not boil the water! My travelling companion noticed a fair bit of noise about 2am, presumably, from the main street, but the bed was such that I slept through it! I doubt that there would be much noise in rooms at the front of the building as the road in front of the hotel is for buses only. The hotel is situated at the top of a short flight of stairs from a lower level passageway that connects the station subway to the town centre. Both evening we were there, there was someone quite openly selling drugs at the top of these stairs - effectively outside the hotel door; the station subway is the main evening hangout for the local youths, which made it very intimidating to pass though - the only reason though that you'd you'd use this subway in the evenings is to get to the convenient local supermarket. This is probably the best hotel in Schaffhausen all things considered, and Schaffhausen is a lovely town.
