This is the result if you change a former schoolhouse into a hotel. The architect did his job very well and created modern rooms with lovely details. If you visit the restaurant it will take time. The hotel is located in the heart of Bad Berleburg.

Beautiful hotel in a wonderful location. Friendly, accommodating staff, excellent rooms, great attention to detail in their entire presentation.

Experienced the Hotel Alte Schule for a short 2 night / 3 day business trip in August 2013. The hotel itself is a beautifully restored old school house with amazing attention to detail. Being someone who is sometime allergic to old stuff, I can personally say that the property is extremely clean and no "old" smells at all. Breakfast was...

Therefor we went to the little city in the middle of nowhere and hoped that we would find a bed and breakfast to sleep for the night. Almost right in front of the castle there was a renovated old building that had...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It's the little, unforgettable moments that are the most important in life. It's for times like these that Hotel Alte Schule provides the best setting. Amidst the romantic and historical old city centre of Bad Berleburg and across from the Baroque palace of the princes of Sayn-Wittgenstein, this lovely half-timbered edifice shines with an extra special charm. The building, which was home to the local school from 1923 to 1954, has maintained its traditional character even with numerous renovation projects. Many painstakingly arrange details, like old certificates and teaching instruments, reminds one of scenes from the days of yore in the otherwise modern ambience. The old school is a place where you can let your spirit free. Enjoy the cosy warmth of the open fireplace in winter, a cool refreshment in our beer garden during summer days, the luxurious and stylish décor in the rooms - and a romantic, nostalgic atmosphere that you won't forget. ... more   less
