Stayed here because it was a Rick Steves recommendation. I must say it was very ecclectic when it came to decor! I just thought it was rather quirky, but it did not hamper our stay one bit. The rooms were very large and comfortable but the decor was weird. We laughed a lot about the green couch thing...then my husband... More

This is a family-run hotel in the center of town with a restaurant at the ground level. Unfortunately we were not able to eat dinner at the restaurant when we were there because it was closed for holiday. We arrived after 6 pm and the owner already left. We were given instructions to open the front door and retrieve our... More

We stayed here for two nights. The staff were kind but were not overly helpful. We couldn't find them in the morning for help with directions and site seeing, and at night they were in the restaurant and were too busy. Our room was clean and comfortable, beautiful balcony and views. The town is so charming and the vineyard is... More

We greatly enjoyed the hospitality provided. The rooms were clean and the meals were very good. The location in the middle of town is excellent for wandering around and exploring and a parking space right in the middle of town is provided. The staff spoke very good English and were quite willing to help with directions and advice.

The Hotel Hirschen and town of Staufen were definitely one of the highlights of our two week trip to Germany. We stayed two nights along with Rebecca C and her family who had the upstairs apartment. Our room was quaint and comfortable with two large windows and sleeping for three. The bathroom, though small, was immaculate as was the rest... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The staff is friendly and very helpful, providing us with directions and maps for our Black Forest visit. We stayed with our two children in the apartment on the top floor. It was more than enough space and clean. Breakfast was good with meats, cheese, brotchen, fresh fruit and yogurt, fried eggs,...

This was a nice clean hotel and we enjoyed our stay. We had a balcony and we ate once in their restaurant and enjoyed that also. Breakfast was very good. We did have to ask for the Konus card which covered our travel on the train in the area. We also used the Konus card to get to Basal the... More

In the U.S., I avoid restaurants inside of hotels. That is definitely not the case in Germany. We had one of the best meals - no, experiences - here. The interior is traditional Bavarian...and, we were surrounded by Germans eating and drinking with smiles on their faces. The menu is full of choices for a classic German meal. I don't... More

Upon arrival our key was left in a lock box (by prior arrangement) so we were left to our own devices to get the lay of the land. We found a wonderful terrace near our room with lounge chairs and patio tables where we relaxed before dinner. Location perfect near sites and good restaurants (zum Hirschen closed the night we...

This was an unexpected surprise finding this great hotel. The town is very pretty with interesting shops! The hotel rooms are well sized and equipped and the food is exceptional. Service was very good and not slow! I wish we could have stayed longer!
