The folks at this small, old fashioned hotel are very friendly and helpful. I was disappointed to get a room on top floor, only because I dislike slanted roof rooms (which can be hotter). However, the small, nicely furnished single, for only 42 euros, was comfortable, quiet, with okay bath.
The buffet breakfast is delicious (as I write this for each nice German hotel I stayed in, I'm wondering if this is a good thing). However, they have reserved seats for longtime guests in their smallish breakfast room, with limited comfortable seats. Since I went early (insisting on sitting where I liked), and the folks whose seats I was taking slept late, there was a bit of tension, but it worked out. I felt bad for the very nice young girl serving breakfast who had to deal with me.
The hotel is a 15 minute walk through a wooded area along the river to get to the wall of the old city. The walk uphill into the city is not to steep, and then your right by the main sites. It is another 10 minutes through the city to get to the tourist office.
Normally I prefer more central location, but the walk is beautiful, as is Fussen.
Next time in Fussen I will probably pay more and stay at a hotel closer to the city, with a river view, but the Hotel Jacob is a good deal for the price.
