Stayed here one night last week in a $98 plus tax small room with a comfortable double bed, very small step-up bathroom, very small shower, and you guessed it......a very small flat screen TV.
While the lobby was antique and quaint the room was not. The front desk was very cordial and gave us a very good restaurant recommendation. The best thing going for the hotel is its very good location in the downtown historical district and a nice bar with daily happy hours and free popcorn. And the next best thing is that smoking is absolutely not permitted and no animals are allowed. The continental breakfast was free actually good.......biscuits and gravy, orange juice, very good coffee, cereals, pastries, bagels, etc. The presentation however was poor and the young man tending the breakfast was poorly dressed.
We are glad we stayed, however we will probably not return. The charm and location only slightly outweighed the deficits. We do hope the new owner succeeds. We love historic hotels such as the one in downtown Bryan TX that is similar to the Faust but has been upgraded,

Room Tip: Don't get the $98 double. Take a look at the $130 rooms and see if they are bigger and better.

We stayed at the Faust for one night en route to Austin. The building and interior are beautiful but the rooms feel a little dirty and unloved. The bar had some good beers but the food was far from inspiring

Good points:
Beautiful detail and great architecture
Good local beers
Easy to find from I35

Annoyances:
Dirty room and bathroom
No opening windows (sorry I am British)
Breakfast was not really worth having

Really enjoyed our stay at the Faust. The rooms are small and the bathroom was tiny but I enjoyed it. Each morning breakfast is available that consists of fresh fruit, cereal, bagels, toast, warm biscuits, and sausage gravy.
If we choose to return to New Braunfels, the Faust will be on our list!

I have stayed at the Faust several times. Its quirky, the rooms are small, the bathrooms even smaller, the balue is questonable but, I just love it. Its the lack of newness that I really like. Its nothing like a new Marriot or something. You need to be ready for the age of the setting. Contrary to some other more critical reviews, I have had fantastic experiences with all of the staff. Reese at the front desk is a doll. Doug, the events manager, is super nice. Even the cleaning crew was so accomodating. I wont stay anywhere else.

what a wonderful place. We have stayed in some great hotels around the world and had some wonderful times, but this place takes the biscuit. I cant fault it, amazing bar, superb food and the best beers we have ever had. Its so good value the food is out of this world and a few dollars a plate. We stayed in a suite, take my advice push the boat out you wont find better anywhere.

Room Tip: our freinds had a king room we had a suite both were fantastic.
