Landhotel Bierhäusle: Not really in Alsace, but very close
When I realized that by end of January many hotels in Alsace had already been fully booked for the end of May, I started looking somewhere else. I finally found the Landhotel Bierhäusle in Eschbach, just across the border from Alsace.
We had a double with a tiny bathroom. The mattress was the softest I had ever slept on and strangely enough for such a small village there was a lot of noise at night, cars and trucks on the street and about every half hour a train. We then understood the many posters we had seen all over the place, complaining about the train traffic.
Well, we were happy to have found a hotel and it really wasn't expensive, 45 Euro not including breakfast.
The first morning we had breakfast there, it was 10 Euro each, which was too much for what was offered - just some bread rolls, prepacked cheese and ham and two flavours of jam.
A nice touch: For those who leave early a water kettle and some instant coffee is left on a table, also some fruit and chocolate.
Would I stay there again? Probably and for one reason: The emphasis of the Bierhäusle is on the restaurant attached to it, which is one of the best I have ever eaten in!
