I guess the whole town of Hohenschwangau is geared towards tourists and this place was the most reasonable that we came across. It's location is at the bottom of the hill but it has unrestricted views to the castle from the front of the hotel. All around it are the massive car parks that service the numerous visitors each day and so I am guessing they will never lose that vantage point.
Reception is only 'manned' for certain hours during the day and if your arrival is after 8pm then you could encounter some difficulties. However, we were there in plenty of time and the welcome was warm and friendly with all aspects being explained. apparently the front door is locked as reception leave but each room has the key to the side door so guests can come and go. The building has obviously been around for some time and we were given the key to room number 3 which was on the first floor at the front. My wife and I did exchange glances as we approached the door as the floorboards gave an almighty creek but it was no more serious than that. The room was cheerful and although the furniture was old in style it was still very functional. The twin beds were big, firm but comfortable and there was also a seat in the room. The bathroom was rather small and the shower cramped but it all functioned well enough although warm water did take a time to come through but it did get there eventually.
You can pay an absolute fortune in this place and still not end up with anything better and since we were one night only the price and facilities suited our needs.
Breakfast in the morning was included and was a buffet affair of typical continental style.
Free car parking was available at the front and also around the side and back. It did get busy on the night we were there and we were invited to leave the car there the following day as we visited the castle even though we had checked out. Check out was smooth, efficient and easy.
