“UNEXPECTED TREASURE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2011

This hotel was not the easiest to find. Even though we had GOOGLE instructions, we still got lost. After a stop at the TI we got on the correct road and then, promptly drove past it. It is set back from the road and the sign is on the other side of the road, so look for it.
The hotel is clean but dated. Don't try and show up before 2:00pm. They aren't always there. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable and spacious. Please note that this is more like a cottage motel rather than a chain hotel, but still charming. The view from the balcony is breathtaking (the castles are illuminated).
The restaurant attached to the hotel serves fabulous food. It is run by a chef and his wife. Food was extraordinary. I cannot rave enough about the food.
The free WiFi was a bonus.
We would go back again.

The setting for this hotel is like stepping into the Sound of Music. It is located at the base of the Alps, in the village of Neuschwangau, with views of the picturesque Neuschwanstein Castle from some of the rooms.

While the decor of our room was a bit dated it and the en suite bathroom were very clean and comfortable. Our second floor room was quite large and included a small table and chairs and a couch as well as a large balcony that did include views of the Castle.

The hotel is owned and managed by a family and they were all very helpful and kind during our visit. The breakfast options were fairly standard - meats, cheeses, breads, cereal, yogurt and juices - and they took special care to set aside a plate for us as we arrived for breakfast a bit late our first morning there.

They are located just 3 KM from the Fussen train station and if you are coming to the area to tour King Ludwig's castles the location is terrific.

Room Tip: Request views of the castle.

We spent a night there, arrived around noon time for checking in but no one was at the hotel. We had to leave our luggage at the front door and came back later after the visit to both castles. It was Tuesday night that we stayed there, unfortunately the hotel's restaurant closes on Tuesdays. Heard from a taxi driver that food is pretty good there.

The hotel must have been renovated recently. The floor is new and there is a lift. Wifi is free in the room. Our room is in the back part which has a nice view, though we can't see the castle from our room. It seems that you have to rent a tv, if you want one. But there is a TV in our room without extra charge. Breakfast is standard.

From the hotel to the ticket centre is about 10 minutes walk. Actually, staying in Fussen is probably a better option. There are a lot more shops & restaurant. There are often buses between Fussen and Hohenschwangau and it takes less than 10 mins. Taxi cost from Fussen station to the ticket centre is about CHF 10 only,

a lovely friendly family run hotel within 10 mins walk of the ticket centre for the royal castles (another 30 uphill to the actual castle - but everyone has to do it!) We had a lovely view over the meadows behind the hotel but some rooms have a view of the castle - either will please! Simple bavarian style breakfast and parking on site - staff were happy for us to leave our car while we visited the castle. There's a restaurant next door or plenty of choice in the ticket centre area a 10 min walk away. Set back from the main road so keep your eyes peeled for their sign when arriving.

The title says it all - excellent location for the castles (20 minutes walking takes you to the Ticket Centre for your castle admissions) and for exploring further afield - we walked into Schwangau and Fussen each day, they were so close. An excellent cold continental breakfast and drinks in the fridge in the lobby. Nothing to fault at all.

The staff is very helpful, the location and views are great. Even though there was a light rain, we walked up to the castles. An awesome view of the castle from the balcony. A bit of walking but well worth it, easier than dealing with parking close dealing with the crowds. The breakfast is the standard German fare, great for fueling your hike.
