Sleep in the principal's room - breakfast in the assembly hall
Hotel Im Schulhaus has a lot of surprises for its guests
When an old schoolhouse is converted into a modern hotel with fresh colours and comfortable rooms, when people are together enjoying "great holidays", that is the start of an exciting story played out at Hotel Im Schulhaus in Lorch in the Rheingau.

In the words of the architect
Karin Dorberth-Krauss: “According to the construction preconditions that were discovered, the planning and design aimed for a simple, clearly divided structure with large glass panels harmoniously adjusted to the rest of the building.
The main facade to the former schoolyard and the entry facade, reached from the main road, were maintained as much possible in their original form.
The sole exception is the construction of a one-storey glass steel cube which is used as a breakfast room. The extension with a flat roof is connected to the back of the building. Its room provides a view of the meadow and Wisper brook.
The attic of the historical building was completely removed. The roof area was ripped open and expanded with a penthouse on the three-storey new construction”.

Large-scale in execution, sensitive in detail
In contrast to the functional architecture in the interior design of the guest rooms, the greatest emphasis was placed on comfort and wellbeing in a modern ambiance. Colour tones like cappuccino, cream, chocolate, sand, mauve, nougat, slate brown and smoky grey provide a cuddly feeling without plush and tat.
Outside in front of the gate, in the alleys and publicly accessible areas there is an atmosphere of clarity and modern functionalism. The colour scheme concentrates on sensitively layered grey tones combined with clear white. The accent is placed on large-scale red inside surfaces.
Hurrah! The old school clock is still there
If you keep your eyes open as you enter Hotel Im Schulhaus you will discover many endearing signs of the past.
