I am a hopeless romantic and obsessed with Disney, so I thought it only fitting to start of my Europe vacation with a trip to the "Disney" Castle (officially named Neuschwanstein Castle). I wanted a hotel in close proximity with a view of the castle and found Hotel Alpenstuben while looking for tickets to the castle online.
When we got there the staff was very friendly and was able to check us right in. There is no elevator, but we had very little luggage. We were on the top floor of the hotel and the room was beautiful. The balcony had a perfect view of the castle, the only problem is that it was being renovated so you couldn't see it! This made me a little sad, but the hotel was still perfect. The room itself had a canopy bed and some nice art on the walls. The hotel also offered free wifi, which was great for me and my mom to stay in contact with everyone back home.
I will say that the rooms here are small compared to American hotel rooms, but by European standards it was very spacious. The shower did require you to step up into it, but a minor detail for the overall experience. It is very close to the bus station, so you do not have to walk too far. I would recommend this hotel for sure, we had a great time.
