“Great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

The hotel is quite close to the main square of Füssen. The main square is in 7-8 minutes walking distance from the train station and if you walk 2 minutes more, the Hotel is there. Although the hotel is small, the rooms are very big. Actually two rooms, one living room and one bedroom. Moreover, they are clean and well-furnished. Although it is not a luxury hotel, it satisfies its customers in this sense.
Buffet breakfast is served and it is sufficiently rich. A very sweet and friendly old lady serves tea, coffee etc. in the breakfast hall.
Florian, the guy in the reception desk is very friendly as well. Just ask for his help and he does his best to help you.
One great thing is that they give each guest a "guest card" which enables free use of public transport in Füssen, Schwangau and surrounding towns. So you can easily visit the royal castles, Tegelberg, Forggensee etc. for free.
One last remark, as Füssen is only a town, you can not find many places to hang around after it gets dark. So, waking up very early will enable you to spend your time optimally.

We stayed in this family run hotel in the centre of the old city for a week while we were in Füssen. We found it to be a wonderful place to call home for the week--spacious clean rooms, breakfast with a great selection of food, free wifi and very helpful, friendly staff. It was the personal touches that impressed us—Wolf, who looked after our needs at the front desk, gave us his copy of Rick Steves so we would be sure to get the discount at the hotel in Munich that he had helped us book, Margaret and her husband Benedict made sure that breakfast was ready early the one morning we had an early morning engagement, bus passes were given to us when we checked in so that we could travel the local transit to the castles and the surrounding area and the personal interest in our activities The location of this hotel is perfect for exploring the town of Füssen and is within an easy walk to the train station. We also ate at the restaurant attached to this Hotel and found the service and the food there to be excellent as well.If we have the opportunity to travel in this part of Germany again we would definiately stay at the Zum Hechten.

Nice hotel in the center of the Old Town. We stayed here because it was convenient to get to the castles, plus the hotel sells tickets at a discount. Parking in the back of the hotel for a small additional fee. Free internet but it was extremely spotty (and thus, frustrating) in our room.

Our room was nice and fairly spacious with a sitting area and a terrace. Small but good, clean bathroom. Towels were like sandpaper the first day but very nice the second. No elevator, but easy stairs to climb, even with luggage.

Breakfast was plentiful and good. Meats, cheeses, breads, cereal, boiled eggs. Extremely nice help in the breakfast room.

Location in the center of the old town was nice. Wish we had more time to explore the shops, but they close at 6pm so didn't have much of a chance after full days of touring the area sites.

Would stay here again.

My 3 friends and I stayed at this hotel in May 2013. We were pleased to have a restaurant within the hotel and found our rooms very clean and very comfortable. Efforts were made to help us make a convenient trip to see the castles. Fussen is a small enough place that we enjoyed a walk to the edge of town, great scenery. But we wish to make a comment on our server, Katalin Egger, who waited on us on her wedding day. She said she was "stressed" but we found her warm and friendly and efficient. An excellent person to be working in this family run hotel, she made it even better. Highly recommend the hotel and its food and accommodation.

This hotel is newly renovated and ABSOLUTELY beautiful. The fresh colours, the olde world charm, the food and the service is simply fantastic. This is a family run hotel in the old City and the staff (mostly elderly) are extremely kind, friendly and helpful. We stayed here for two nights and had a beautiful room/bathroom with private balcony facing the courtyard and car park area. Window boxes filled with petunias and inquisitive robins added to the charm of sitting on the balcony at sunset. The restaurant was great (especially the Eisbein) and breakfast was the largest variety I have ever seen. A truly GREAT hotel I do hope to visit again!

Room Tip: 2nd floor room with a balcony.

Our room had two single beds and was newly renovated. The room was small and the bathroom was tiny. The beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was great - there was a large selection of pastries, breads, cheeses, cold cuts, fruit... The services was also pleasant.

Great hotel property in the middle of the old city. Parking is included on site, which is very much appreciated, even if the spots were fairly small. The staff is mostly long-term, so they show great care for all of the guests. Breakfast is substantial and tasty.
