Hôtel Saint-Nicolas in Riquewihr

Welcome to the Saint-Nicolas Hotel and Restaurant in Alsace. 

Hôtel Saint-Nicolas is owned by Raphaël Kircher and Benoît Nicolas. Eager to take on a new challenge, these two childhood friends bought the hotel in 2014. On the 14th April it will re-open after a few months of major renovation work to bring it up to modern standards. The adventure begins...

Hôtel Saint-Nicolas is perfectly situated in the mediaeval centre of Riquewihr, where the cobbled car-free streets, brightly coloured houses and peaceful atmosphere gives the impression that time has stopped.

Listed among the most beautiful villages in France, Riquewihr is in the middle of Alsace and makes the perfect starting point for a tour of our beautiful region. It is on the 170-kilometre-long wine route, which offers the opportunity to explore some beautiful countryside and taste the wonderful regional wines. On your journey you will discover other wonderful and typical towns and villages such as Eguisheim, Ribeauvillé, Kaysersberg, Obernai, Mittelbergheim and Hunawihr, and of course Colmar, Strasbourg and Mulhouse.

Hôtel Saint-Nicolas is made up of three beautiful large timber-framed houses dating from the 16th and 17th centuries. It has comfortable, traditional rooms that are perfect for couples, family holidays or groups of friends.

In 2018, the hotel took on its third building, the undeniably picturesque “La Maison Sophie”, named in honour of its previous owner. Its eight rooms perfectly combine the charm of houses of yesteryear with a very cosy contemporary style.
