An older hotel in the style of European hotels. It is clean enough and comfortable enough. Rooms have antiques but flat screen TVs. We had a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave too. Staff is reasonably friendly but frequently not at the front desk which is only a problem if you leave your key when you go out. Some new carpets... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights so that we could enjoy the outdoor activities in and around New Braunfels. I found the hotel to be clean and charming. We stayed in the King Executive Suite, which was filled with antique furniture. It was small, but very clean. It had a good-sized refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, and... More

This hotel is old and tired. We had a suite, none of the furniture made any sense, the couch had no cushion to sit on, just wood. Everything was old and beat up. We had 2 baths, both were very small and the shower did not work in one. Very poor lighting throughout the small suite. The cleaning crew never... More

My wife and I stayed at The Faust for a wedding in New Braunfels and we were both very excited for the idea of a brewery/hotel with history. We booked a "European Deluxe" room which meant that it was a tiny room with a desk. The room was clean, but the amenities were very old, including the chairs, bed, bedspread,... More

For a quaint old hotel the Faust was not as welcoming as I would expect. Some of the staff were fantastic and very accommodating. Some of the staff were happy saying, "no, we can't do that because the hotel is very busy now". The rooms are incredibly small and the bathrooms in the closet are definitely unique. To top it...

My boyfriend chose this hotel because of its location, close to and IFF event venue. BAD MISTAKE. I went in this morning, to ask if I could check - not get a room, just do the check in and let the hotel hold my bags. The woman at the front desk said she could put them in a room by... More

My husband and I were in New Braunfels for a wedding, and chose the Faust Hotel based on the downtown location and generally positive reviews. I enjoy staying at independent and historical hotels when I can, however I was somewhat disappointed in my stay at the Faust. We chose an Executive King room based on reviews saying that the basic...
