Stayed her for one night and considered checking out multiple times. This is a historic hotel that has been neglected - it has the potential to be charming and quaint but in it's current state was bordering on run down, especially for the price point. We stayed in a Queen room and no kidding it must have been max 100... More

We wanted to spend a day/night in Greune, but all of the hotels were either booked or had 2-3 night minimums. New Braunfels is a short 10-minute drive from Greune and The Faust Hotel was the only place that didn't have a 2-night minimum. Based on that fact, it was already suspect, but we booked it anyway, knowing that we... More

My wife and I have stayed in motels all around the hill country and wanted to stay in an old classic hotel for our 25th. We understand that the rooms are smaller and the bathrooms are very small. This was our trade off for staying in a hotel for under $100 a night during the weekend within walking distance to... More

The room was very tiny, hot and smelled terrible. I was very disappointed with the staff (hotel and bar), both of whom were quite rude. New Braunfels has a lot better to offer, especially Gruene! Yes, there is charm with the 20s décor, but that's about it.

Stayed two hellish nights: the room was sweltering, and really tiny, with a bathroom like one would find on a train..the aircon was so noisy and ineffective one wondered why we bothered to leave it on. No room servicing was done and everything was tired and had a grubby air. The actual building and its interior features are nice and... More

Love this hotel. Full of history and charm. 1920's decor. Old, quaint but very clean. Doesn't smell old either. Front desk is always friendly. Pub (brewery) has great food and beer. Love sitting outside on patio. The double room wasn't as good as the king room I had last time. The king bed was really comfy.

We stayed in a King room. The hotel has a lot of interesting history and they have modernized it without losing the history of the hotel. The internet worked well, the bed was comfortable, and the television was modern. The bathroom was historically correct for the hotel, but worked well. The staff always greeted us with big Texas smiles and... More

We stayed here when our first choice was unavailable due to a two night minimum. Lots of weddings and associated late night noise (directly outside hotel). Room was cramped. Nice bar in restaurant with their own beers, but they could have been better. Friendly service but I just can't recommend staying here unless you really like this type of hotel.

We have stayed here twice now and we love it. The rooms are very comfortable and truly historic. The bar and restaurant offer a variety of unique foods and brews. If you are looking for a trendy hotel, this may not be the place for you. But if you are looking for a unique and off the path experience, then... More

If you like history you'll like the lobby of this hotel. Old, well maintained. A lot of character. Clean. Nice staff. Walking distance to downtown. However, I would not recommend staying here. I read online that the rooms were small so we "upgraded" to a suite. The room was very small. The furnishings old and worn not old and maintained... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since coming under new ownership in July 2009, there has been a great deal of effort put towards restoring The Faust Hotel & Brewing Company to its original luxury and grandeur. The project has been extensive and is still in progress, but many changes and upgrades can be found throughout the entire property. Our newly redesigned guest suites feature 1920's Art Deco design while incorporating modern amenities including:Wireless Internet, Flat Screen Televisions, Refrigerators, Microwaves, Keurig Coffee Makers, Brita Pitchers. In addition to our guest suites, we have a variety of accommodations to suit your needs including rooms with 1 or 2 double beds, queen and king size beds. The brew pub has something to please everyone in your party: Flat screen TVs, darts, live music, trivia and the comforting surroundings of a classic brauhaus. The Faust Brewing Company now features an array of house brews, including Faust Golden Ale, Altered States German Altbier and Mike Crowe IPA, as well as a variety of seasonal favorites. Leading the production is Ray Mitteldorf, a professional brew master with 17 years experience. For a complete experience, the pub has recently launched its new tapas-style menu, created by Chef Chris Kilisz. His exclusive menu features items specifically designed for sharing and pairing with the pub’s own microbrews: their signature dish, the Faust Wellington, Mini Dogs topped with sauerkraut, sautéed bell peppers and onions and spicy mustard, and German Nachos, to name a few. Just as the pub isn’t limited to beer (there’s liquor and wine, too), the menu isn’t limited to German-inspired options: it boasts a broad spectrum of international cuisine with dishes such as the Croque Monsieur, Souvlaki Skewers, Proscuitto Caprese Bruschetta, and Cochanitas. ... more   less
