Reviewed 9 June 2013

High in the mountains was our hotel for 3 nights in May. You start ascending a narrow road which halfway up becomes a one lane twisty curvy experience. This was the summit where King Ludwig planned to build another castle and the ruins are only a few feet away. The view from our room was amazing. The owners were very welcoming and everyone was very helpful. The breafast buffet was extensive and the restaurant menu seemed just as good, but we always returned late and didn't have the opportunity to dine. I'm assuming we were given the "romantic" suite. Bear skin rugs on the floor and a jacuzzi off to the side. Did I mention the mirror over the water bed and lights above and under the bed? Never did get use to the roadway, but what a special experience and the perfect place to stay when castle hopping.

We stayed 2 nights in July as a base to visit the castles and Fussen - a great choice. The location is unique in its own right being at the very top of its own mini mountain so even when we weren't touring we felt we were somewhere special.

I think the rooms take their inspiration from King Ludwig though! The hallway resembles a grotto and the rooms are bordering on kitsch - incredibly comfortable though and some (ours) with amazing valley views. One minor complaint was that the piped music which permeated the hallways was turned to max volume at 1.00 in the morning (accidentally we presume!)

Service was good - the owners are lovely - however the other staff were perhaps less friendly.

The restaurant was brilliant - we had a wonderful meal on our first night. Breakfast was equally impressive.

Overall a unique experience - we would definitely stay again.

My husband and I just spent a weekend here in October. The hotel was beautiful and the views were amazing. We had great weather and this is a wonderful place to stay to do the castles and Fussen. We loved the hotel. Breakfast was absolutely delicious each morning and dining on the patio with Falkenstein and the Alps in the background was breathtaking. Can't say enough good things about the hotel and the staff. As a note, the road becomes a one way mountan street to the hotel that is regulated by a light. It took us a few times to figure out the time constraints. Just be sure to understand the timing so that you don't have to wait 30 minutes or so to get in/out.

Room Tip: Ask for a view.

Das Burghotel Falkenstein liegt in 1200 m Höhe. Es gibt verschiedene Themenzimmer, wir hatten die Hochzeitssuite, mit Whirlpool und Blick auf Burg Falkenstein und ins Tal.
Einfach traumhaft... Das Essen ist hervorragend, viel Auswahl zum Frühstück und alles frische Ware. Auch das Abendessen das wir uns gönnten war fantastisch. Selten so gut gegessen!
Von hier oben kann man wunderbar wandern oder spazieren gehen.

Room Tip: Die Zimmer sind alle unterschiedlich eingerichtet, das ist Geschmacksache welches man sich da rauss...

Didn't stay at the hotel but ate at the restaurant. What a fantastic place to eat and have a beer. The food was great, the beer was cold and I really enjoyed the ambience on the veranda overlooking the valley below. I'm going to visit again and will stay next time. The drive up there is not for the faint hearted but you are made to feel welcome by the couple who own the place.

Burghotel Falkenstein is nestled at about 4000 feet on a spur next to the ruin of Burg Falkenstein--the third location that "famous" Bavarian King Ludwig II had selected for a fairy-tale castle but no longer managed to build. It only has a dozen or so attractive rooms with a spectacular view of the Allgäu mountains and sports an excellent restaurant--with resasonable prices considering the location.
There is a "sister" hotel (Berghotel Falkenstein) some 1000 feet lower, which is similarly well kept but does not enjoy the spectacular view from the mountain top. Getting to the Burghotel is quite a deal: In winter you need to park at the lower hotel and take a four-wheel shuttle bus up a narrow, winding and steep mountain road. All other times you can drive up observing the traffic light at the lower end of the road--it's all one way!
Reserving a room with a valley view is a must.

Didn´t actually stay in this hotel but had a drink with my kids after a long trek up the Falkenstein. The coke that was served was both flat and without ice. My daughter drank her drink almost to the end and then discovered a rather disgusting furry bit (MOULD) at the bottom of the glass. The staff of the hotel played it down and when pouring another coke from the so called "regularly cleaned pump system" the next glass was also taking a heck of a long time to pour and also had no gas in it. I was assured on questioning that "it was totally normal.". After speaking to the manager and having to pay, although I remained calm the staff were quite rude. Shame abouth this hotel is the tacky interior of the toilet displaying ladies in underwear (what´s that all about)?? Have not seen the rest of the hotel but I think that I have seen enough!
