Locataion is stunning, rooms are quirky. Staff were very abrupt to the point of rude.First evening we visited the spa, there were two business men finishing a meeting with a flip cart. No sauna or steam available, when we asked about the facilities we were made to feel very unwelcome in there & told no english was spoken, the staff/... More

This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. The staff are very warm and welcoming. The rooms are each unique, we stayed in the Casablanca and it was beautiful. The attention to the detail is phenomenal, not only in the room but throughout the entire hotel and premises. The food rivals any gourmet restaurant. Spouse said... More

We stayed at this hotel in April 2014 and I've been meaning to write this review ever since. Better late than never I guess. If you are looking for the most impossibly romantic hotel with unbelievable 360 degree views, fabulous food and friendly, helpful staff, then look no further. I found this hotel after searching the internet for one in... More

Private very narrow road up, obey the traffic singnal or you have to back down for a long stretch before the right of way vehicles can pass you... No road barriers, be careful, but what an... More

It was my business trip to Germany and I spent in this hotel only one night but it impressed me so much that now I'm planning to come back for holidays. Everything that is connected with Falkenstein is perfect. To start with a marvelous and breathtaking view which is opened to your eyes when you reach the top of the... More

There are few hotels in Germany or elsewhere who are situated with views of valley and mountain like the Burghotel Falkenstein. Add to this a chef who offers meals both substantial and perfectly seasoned. Then finish the experience off with a staff that makes one feel welcomed. The end result is a vacation experience beyond compare. Don't miss this experience.... More

Even with clouds/drizzle, when we opened up our room door to the view of the valley, it was breathtaking. The drive on the one lane road is scary, especially as we came across other cars coming the wrong way when they shouldn't have been on the road, but worked through it and I would absolutely stay here again. The owners... More

Stayed in one of the rooms in Burghotel and as promised in the pictures, the room is really beautiful. The hotel is located on top of a hill and the drive up has to be quite careful. Next to the hotel, there is an abandoned castle which is easily accessible from the hotel, which nice views from the castle. The... More

The location is amazing, unparalleled view of the valley and snow covered mountains. If desired the hotel can be visited without staying for 4 euros parking, and enjoy a meal with unobstructed views. We stayed in the smaller rooms and still had an incredible view! Access is by a one way private road controlled by a light. The light never... More
