i made the reservation with a credit card one month in advance. we arrived late because there was a construction detour, we got lost and had really bad storm weather. finally when we arrived we WERE UNABLE TO CHECK IN. THE OFFICE WAS CLOSED AND NO ONE THERE TO CHECK US IN or answer the phone. We were stranded at 11 pm left to drive around to find a place to stay. the entire town was booked for the night so we had to drive 40 minutes to the nearest city to find a place. to make things worst, OUR CREDIT CARD WAS BILLED AS A NO-SHOW. apparently the instructions provided stated the latest you can check in is 7pm. unfortunately i failed to read that. i had not idea HOTELS limit their check in time specially when they've been paid. i should also mention the front door was full of spiders an spider webs and the parking had not light.

My husband and I stayed here for a night to get an early start for Neuschwanstein, and it was just right. I spoke German with the receptionist, but I believe English is spoken too. She also gave us a discount coupon for the castle, which she explained you can use even if you've already reserved tickets, since you pay for them when you pick them up.
Our room was small and plainly furnished, but perfectly adequate. Same goes for the bathroom. The shower had good water pressure, hand wash is provided, but no other toiletries. There's even a hairdryer where you don't have to keep your thumb on the button the whole time you're using it! (Pet peeve of mine in German hotels) Internet was decent, I thought. The main issue was that you have to register for the (free) service first, and confirm your registration via a link they send you in an email. I was having problems with reception on my phone in the hotel, so couldn't confirm till I went into town later that day.
Breakfast was typically German (breads and cold cuts, cereals, coffee, tea, juice) and not bad at all.
A plus was definitely the location - away from the hubbub and tourist traps around the ticket office, but still close enough to walk into town and up to the castle.

Walking distance to the castle ticket center. Wonderful views from our room which was large and clean. No neighbors- just cows in the backyard. Breakfast was simple but good and they laid out the essentials to make a good lunch for the trail. Free Wifi and a great night's sleep.

You can do better. Our bathroom smelled bad, breakfast was below average and the service was fairly reserved/unfriendly. Stunning location - very close to the castle - in this way, it was perfect.
The area is beautiful, if you come to see the castle, make sure you take some time to walk/cycle/hike!

A lovely, family owned hotel with onsite parking. They speak English and were happy to help me with my poor German. The location is within walking distance to the 2 castles and there is a restaurant next door that we enjoyed. The family was very nice and helpful: I had a note written in an old German script from a great aunt. The matriarch of the family was able to read it and I now have a translation. The breakfast was very good. I would stay here again if we returned to this area.

This is a very clean B&B which is literally a 15 minute walk from the main ticket center for Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles but in a very quiet part of town. The owners are very accommodating and there is an elevator. Rooms on one side of the building have balconies and a very nice view over some fields and into the mountains.there are also a couple of good locals type restaurants close by.

All great, except the smell of cigarettes in the lobby and hallways, which seeped into the rooms a bit. I understand this is Europe. The rooms are very nice and quiet, and the hotel is very close to the visitors center for the castles. The staff is very kind and helpful and the breakfast was very good. The internet is slow, but she explained that it is slow in the whole village, so it's not her fault. We'd recommend a stay here.
