The Romantik Hotel Waldhorn is a beautiful and small hotel in Ravensburg that my wife, daughters (ages 15 and 12) only found because of another hotel's last minute cancellation of our reservation. Funny how some things can just work out...the Waldhorn turned out to be great for us.
We booked two double-rooms only two weeks before arriving at the hotel for a single night on a planned day trip from Munich. The Waldhorn was extremely accommodating for our one-night reservation despite it being a very busy holiday weekend in Germany. Many other hotels in this part of Germany were requiring two or three night stays.
The hotel location is right in the middle of the walled city's central street, only 50 meters from the old town hall. The street is very busy at night with all the restaurants and cafes bustling with both tourists and university students. Despite all the late-night activity, the hotel remained very quiet inside. During the day, all the town's shops and historic tower landmarks are literally "just steps away."
Finding parking is a little tricky as at night the streets are closed for pedestrians...even with a GPS unit. However, once parked, the hotel is conveniently located directly across the street from a garage access point. The desk staff is very friendly and helpful and also speak fluent English. The main floor and dining room aren't overly ornate, they are tastefully decorated in classic Bavarian wooden tradition; the hallways dotted with different mementos of the hotel's history. A very nice reminder that hotel has welcomed travelers for a long time. Every area in the hotel is obviously carefully maintained.
The rooms are comfortably sized and include a large desk, closet and dresser; they are very clean and simply decorated - exactly what one would expect in a well-run private, small town hotel. The bathrooms seemed to have been recently updated with new tile and fixtures. One summer warning: there isn't air conditioning in the rooms.
Breakfast was included in the rate (even improving the value of the hotel) and like the hotel, was not overly elaborate; just fresh, well-prepared and the Bavarian Basics. There is no need to wander the town looking for breakfast - especially if you're an early-rising tourist type...the other choices in town weren't even open when our family set out for our day.
We only stayed for one night in Ravensburg, (one of the few regrets from our trip) but if we did would have likely enjoyed the Waldhorn even more. I wholly recommend the Waldhorn for any single, couple or family (any age) traveling to Ravensburg.
