“Just OK for us.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2011

A little late in writing this review. We stayed here in June as part of our 3 week trip through Germany. We loved Tubingen - what a great town. This hotel has received great reviews on TA so we booked it. Pros - I did like the location - right around the corner from the main town square. Nice patio for dining, and the rooms were quite large for european standards. Cons - the noise at night from partiers that were up all night (even though we had a room on the back side) and i felt like some of the hotel charges were excessive for a small town hotel. We were charged for parking - 7 euros per night, which i thought was fine. But then they charged us for breakfast - this was the first hotel in germany (other than 4 * hotels) that added this on top of the room charge. We also asked if we could do a load of laundry, and without checking the charges in advance we gave them a few items to wash. That was a shocker - again charged like we were in a 4* hotel. Overall i thought this hotel was just ok, and if I return to Tubingen I will look for another hotel.

Wow - if driving you definitely need GPS or you will have great difficultly locating the hotel. The view from of the castle gate from our bedroom was delightful, as was being so close to the old town with it's fantastic main square where we sat and had a beer and glass of wine.
We eat in the restaurant on the garden balcony which was lovely although cool -we were having bad weather on this trip. Staff were friendly and helpful. be warned - there are alot of stairs to cimb if you are staying in Fuschia Room!

Very conveniently located, a brisk quarter-hour's walk from the main railway station and in the Old Town but a bit at the periphery, near the top of the castle mount. I had a quiet, large room, tucked away high at the back of the annexe; the next-door pub kept late and noisy hours, but I heard nothing as soon as I had closed the windows. Lots of hot water and a powerful shower; a comfortable, warm bed; friendly, helpful staff; excellent dinner at the hotel's own restaurant; hot breakfasts with an excellent choice of items, wonderful coffee... the only flaw: Not my room itself, but its en-suite bathroom, could have used a lick of paint.

It is an interesting University town founded in 1477. The Hotel Am Schloss is at the top of the hill just below the castle. It's comprised of many small, old homes fitted with many rooms and is on a charming cobblestone street on a very, narrow, steep,single lane path. There is a bar on the street that many students frequent so it is quite noisy if you like your windows open. The delivery trucks begin early and are also a nuisance. The restaurant and many rooms are on the back of the building and very peaceful and pleasant. The food is better than average and the waitstaff is very helpful. Breakfasts are very good too.

We stayed at the Hotel am Schloss for one night only, on our way to the Black Forest. The hotel is located next to the castle in Tübingen, and very conveniently so, as you are from walking distance to the heart of the old town of the city.

Parking was a nuisance, as there is only very limited parking available outdoor. There are two large payable parkings nearby however. Parking in front of the hotel will cost you 7 Euros per day. The hotel was at first very hard to find, but once you know where to drive, it is very easy. Furthermore, we had the staff guiding us to the hotel until we found it, which was better than any GPS.

The restaurant is famous in the area for its "Maultaschen" - or meat-filled dumplings, which are a local delicacy. They have a nice menu and is frequented by many locals. However, if you are staying there, you will like it! The best feature of the restaurant is the view onto the city, which is breathtaking. Especially in summer, it is a very nice spot to have a meal, as there are large trees which provide cooling shade.

Staff was very friendly and helpful throughout the stay. The hotel, and or rooms were cleaner than a hospital, and yet very cozy. The decoration reminds of the great German poets and thinkers.

Other than the parking which is a nuisance, I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. If you can get a room with view onto the city, rather than the parking. In any case the view will be lovely. As for value for money, we paid some 60 Euros per person, which was acceptable.

Stayed here 4th of July week. Had a room across the street from the restaurant and next to the local bar. Room was in the back so it was nice and quiet, except for July 4 when other Americans apparently had been celebrating a little too much and decided to sing in the street.

The room was fabulously clean with an extremely spacious and modern bathroom. Had dinner each night in the "Castle" restaurant. Loved the maultaschen!

This hotel is 2 minutes away from the "old town" area with great shopping and dining. Bring your camera because you won't believe the beauty of the town square with it's fountain, half-timbered buildings, lacy curtains in the windows and flower boxes.

Very close to the train station, but you'll still want to take a taxi to the hotel because the steep hills don't mix well with a lot of luggage.

Book your room at Hotel Am Schloss with all confidence that you will enjoy a sparkling clean room in a picturesque setting with great food and shopping. I'll definitely be booking here for my next trip to Germany!

Despite some trepidation after having read the warnings in Tripadvisor, I booked 4 nights at the Hotel am Schloss because it looked so quaint and picturesque. The room itself was spacious, clean, quaint, and comfortable, although like most German hotels, it had awful pillows and mattresses that weren't exactly on an American level of comfort.
About the noise mentioned in the other reviews: 3 out of the 4 nights it was silent as the grave, and I am an extremely noise-sensitive sleeper. My second night, I was indeed awakened by someone having a party, with music- but I believe that came from a student-owned building next door, not from any bar (there is some kind of pub across the street, but I never saw any outdoor activity from it). It should be noted that even on this problematic night, the difficulty was obviated by the simple expedient of closing the double-glazed windows and turning on the bathroom fan for ventilation. The real problem for me was that the hotel restaurant and kitchen were directly under my window= although, again, with the window closed it was not bothersome.
The staff was friendly and obliging, although the English of most was severely limited. The rolls at breakfast were delicious, although the general selection of food offered was somewhat limited. They unfortunately had only a cold meats selection, rather than including fish such as smoked salmon, as most other German hotels do. Apart from these minor quibbles, my stay was pleasant, quiet, and relaxing. I will definitely stay here again when I next travel to Tuebingen- and, incidentally, my German colleague tole me that almost all of his foreign visitors stay at this hotel, and have, like me, been quite happy with it.
I recommend it.

  • Liked — Location, charm of buildings
  • Disliked — Pillows, lack of air-conditioning on nights when windows needed to be closed because of noise from back kitchen
