So sadly disappointed in what could have been a nice little getaway. Only living an hour away (in nearby Austin area) I had passed this old, historic-era hotel for a decade or so, but had never had the occasion to spend the night in New Braunfels until last night, when a great band (shoutout to Zach Walther Band who played...

This is the worst hotel in the USA that I have ever stayed in. The rooms are much smaller than they appear in the pictures. The bathroom is so small that you have to straddle the toilet to wash your hands. ( I am not exaggerating). Customer service is terrible. We stayed for 6 nights and on the last two...

Friends invited us on a anniversary road trip to New Braunfels and through the Texas Hill Country. The Faust Hotel was our "home base" for the weekend. I had been intrigued with this old hotel from previous trips to NB, so I was thrilled to go there with 3 other couples. It is a lovely hotel. Not perfect, but perfectly...

I give them credit for bringing this place back to life but they have a way to go. Window units make it look low class. Lots of history though. A definite throw back to the 30s. Rooms are small but that can't be fixed...it's just how they built them back then. Not a bad place but just ok.

Would never comeback or recommend. Would not just write that without merit either. Rooms small& old- but not charming - online pictures extremely misleading, the rooms were dirty as well, there were hairs on our walls. The room smelled like mold (& most definitely was moldy)& the beds were horrible. The staff was kind of rude as well. I hate...

We came to town for a wedding. Both of us travel a lot for work so we see all kinds of places. We Booked here because of the location. I wish I would have stayed elsewhere. Location is great but that's where it ends. The place is old and needs a complete renovation. I really appreciate architecture but we are...

My husband and I decided to do a staycation. My husband choose this hotel on his own, because it was closest to old Downtown New Braunfels. Well the staff was very nice..... The hotel is older it could use a better update there was a hole in the carpet in our room where they made a repair to the wall...

Old historical hotel just off the downtown courthouse square is a neat place. The Faust Wellington was a good choice for a light dinner... We only saw the rooms on a tour of the hotel.. Note the old pictures in the lobby.

The hotel has an excellent location and is walking distance to everything in downtown New Braunfels. The attached brewery/restaurant is excellent. The free continental breakfast in the lobby is good, but I think 10:30 is too early to shut it down on weekends. Due to the age of the hotel, the rooms and bathrooms are small, but they are manageable....

This hotel is very old which does give it some charm. It also makes you feel like you're in a horror movie. It also uses this as an excuse for everything to be outdated in your rooms. The lighting throughout the entire hotel is horrible, adding to the creepy effect. It's also the most haunted hotel in New Braunfels so...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since coming under new ownership in July 2009, there has been a great deal of effort put towards restoring The Faust Hotel & Brewing Company to its original luxury and grandeur. The project has been extensive and is still in progress, but many changes and upgrades can be found throughout the entire property. Our newly redesigned guest suites feature 1920's Art Deco design while incorporating modern amenities including:Wireless Internet, Flat Screen Televisions, Refrigerators, Microwaves, Keurig Coffee Makers, Brita Pitchers. In addition to our guest suites, we have a variety of accommodations to suit your needs including rooms with 1 or 2 double beds, queen and king size beds. The brew pub has something to please everyone in your party: Flat screen TVs, darts, live music, trivia and the comforting surroundings of a classic brauhaus. The Faust Brewing Company now features an array of house brews, including Faust Golden Ale, Altered States German Altbier and Mike Crowe IPA, as well as a variety of seasonal favorites. Leading the production is Ray Mitteldorf, a professional brew master with 17 years experience. For a complete experience, the pub has recently launched its new tapas-style menu, created by Chef Chris Kilisz. His exclusive menu features items specifically designed for sharing and pairing with the pub’s own microbrews: their signature dish, the Faust Wellington, Mini Dogs topped with sauerkraut, sautéed bell peppers and onions and spicy mustard, and German Nachos, to name a few. Just as the pub isn’t limited to beer (there’s liquor and wine, too), the menu isn’t limited to German-inspired options: it boasts a broad spectrum of international cuisine with dishes such as the Croque Monsieur, Souvlaki Skewers, Proscuitto Caprese Bruschetta, and Cochanitas. ... more   less
