Reviewed 11 May 2012

Traveling with friend, excellent hotel. The owners were delightful. Breakfast was a full spread of everything you could want. The rooms were very clean and a cute twin bed accomodation. The bathroom ( in suite) was roomy and had all the necessities and the heated towel rack. Our view wasn't the greatest but you only sleep there. It had a balcony to sit on but we were there in March and a little cool. Close to everything in walking distance except the castles. You can get a voucher for your tickets to the castle at the hotel (a little discount) They also have a restaurant in the hotel but we choose to venture in town. Very quaint little town with much to see and shop. Information center in center of town. The alps and views are spectacular!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view if that is important to you.

Other then the location,which is very good and fairly quiet i do not highly recommend this hotel.
the room is on the smaller side,there is no elevator and we had our room on the third floor. We had to park our car in their small parking lot down in the basement,which had an awkward access. all their other limited parking spaces on the ground level were already taken.
Breakfast is ok,nothing special but they have nice dining room typical decorated with the bavarian atmosphere .The hotel runs by the family and you can see it's done with a lot of devotion and care.they have restaurant on site and free WiFi connection in the rooms.
the cost of the room was 100 euro.

I had a couple of nights in this friendly family fun hotel in the Altstadt of Fussen and had a lovely relaxing stay. The rooms are clean, stylish and comfortable with a touch of characterful colour in the style of Ludwig II. There is a restaurant with hearty Bavarian fare at reasonable prices and the buffet breakfast is lovely. The location is a wonderful base to explore and it's only a stones throw from the bahnhof to roll your bags. I highly recommend it.

I booked last minute a room for my sister, my friend and I because we wanted to visit the castle. The staff are super helpful and friendly, breakfast looks like was made by grandma even though there were a lot of things. Love it! Room is modest but very clean and cozy.

Very friendly and helpful staff, got a room upgrade for 5 Euro. It's a good idea to book your tickets for Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein through them, no waiting in lineups to get your tickets. Excellent restaurant in the hotel, and good recommendations from the front desk staff for restaurants and bars around town. The breakfast provided was fantastic!

As with all our accommodation for our Europe trip, we booked Altstadthotel Zum Hechten on the internet/email. We had booked a family suite based on the refurbished modern room displayed on the hotel website. We were very disappointed upon opening the door to our room to feel that we had entered a time warp to 1970's Fussen . While in need of refurbishment, the suite did have a newer bathroom and was clean and very spacious.

We arrived in Fussen by train and the location is perfect being located on the edge of the Altstadt and an easy 10 minute walk from the train station.

The hotel has been in the same family for 80 years and all staff were very friendly & helpful and the buffet breakfast was exceptional. The hotel has a reasonably priced & very nice restaurant downstairs which we ate at both nights of our stay. Our fight with European soft pillows continues.

Wonderful family owned hotel at a great location in Fussen. Within a few walkable blocks from the train and a short bus or cab ride from Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstien castles. This hotel has been family owned for three generations and it shows. Every detail has been thought through. The breakfast spread is an elegant feast. We loved the breakfast dining rooms with their beautiful murals, silver servers and local knick-knacks. The 9-pin bowling alley downstairs was a blast. Grab a Ludwig beer from the bar and head down to your own free private lane. Our room was perfectly appointed in tasteful, contemporary decor and the large bathroom was a treat. But what we loved most about the hotel was the employees. It’s hard to really call them that because those we met are part of the two families that own the hotel. You will meet Margaret (since she seems to work there 24-7), an adorable bundle of energy who kept the breakfast a smooth-running operation. Decades ago she married into one of the families who own the hotel and she jokes (we think) that her husband said he married her because he knew she would make an excellent hotel worker. And young nephew Flornia, always so positive and upbeat, stayed past his quitting time to make sure we knew how to operate our bowling lane. Just a fantastic hotel that provides outstanding value.
