“Okay, it may not be the Ritz, but, I would stay there again.”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Hotel Jakob is a cute little Bed and Breakfast up in the hills over Fussen.
I would probably give it a 3.5 if there was an option.
10 minute walk to the train station.
15 minute walk to McD's.
Very nice trails and sights to see right out the front door.
We had a rental car, they have two spots out front (we were able to secure one easy). They have more parking just across the street.
Our room was near the check in. We had a nice little patio overlooking the front lawn.
Furnishings are a bit dated, but, clean and comfortable. We slept great.
The bathroom is a bit tight.
It has a square corner shower with two half doors that slide open. BARELY enough room to slip in and out.
I'm not a small guy and was able to take a shower no problem.
I joked about lathering up the walls and spinning to get clean, it was not that bad. Reminded me of a shower we had in an old RV years ago. :)
The family that owns and operates the hotel are very friendly.

We stayed 2 nights in Fussen during our road trip through southern Germany. We fell in love with the town, and this hotel definitely contributed to our positive experience. Yes it is pricey for a 3-star hotel, but the price includes free parking and breakfast. So it's a pretty good deal. The hosts are terrific - polite, friendly and efficient. The breakfast is quite good, and there is a decent selection of food. The room is basic and clean, but it's also very charming and cute. Sure the decor is kind of outdated, but we think that it adds to the charm. The room is very large, and the bed is very comfortable. The shower isn't very modern, but it's sufficient. The hotel is within 10-minute walking of the city centre. We don't mind that walk as it's very scenic and along the water. Because it's a bit outside, it's very quiet, perfect for relaxing and sleeping. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is ok, but it is definitely dated. Nothing wrong, just overpriced for what it is.
Bathroom and room are dated in the decor, drinking glasses were dirty and the shower took a long time to drain. Friendly staff. Breakfast was reasonable European continental.

I was travelling internationally by myself for the first time this past December and Kurhotel Jakob was the first place I stayed. I had such a wonderful time! I felt safe and taken care of. Breakfast was included and it was delicious!! Magnus was very friendly and helpful and spoke to me in English (but also was patient when I tried to practice my German!). My room had its own bathroom with shower and television. It is located just a short walk from the center of town in Füssen. I would have loved to have stayed longer! Highly recommended!

An easy 10 minute walk along the river into town. Clean, comfortable rooms at a fair price. As mentioned in other reviews the Hosts are Great. The breakfast was on par with other hotels that I have stayed at in Germany. A relaxing couple of nights!!

Awesome hosts, always smiling and ready to help. The hotel is only a ten minute walk from the centre but tucked away in the secluded and beautiful hamlet of Bad Faulenbach- really peaceful. There's also a great restaurant around the corner.
For location I'd rate it 4.5*

The rooms were clean and comfortable with good facilities. The breakfast had a reasonable selection (continental) and the filter coffee was ok. Great wheat beer in stock though! It felt a little overpriced, but we were visiting during Oktoberfest, and we didn't do any price comparisons.
