“Friendly family-run hotel in excellent location”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The Kurhotel Jakob is in a very pleasant part of Füssen, surrounded by many other hotels, and only five minutes walk from the town centre and station. It is a small, very friendly family run hotel, with well appointed rooms. Ours had a balcony, comfortable beds, two easy chairs, and a well appointed en-suite bathroom.

But the best feature of the hotel is the excellent service from the Jakob family; Frau Jakob couldn't do enough to help us, giving us advice about days out, and even calling us one morning when we forgot to set our alarms to check if we would still like breakfast although the usual 10am finish time had passed! She very kindly left us a breakfast selection just for my friend and I - fantastic service!

The breakfast is (usually!) serviced between 8 and 10am, and consists of bread, cold meats and cheeses, fruit juices, cereals and the usual continental fare; perfect after what can often be quite substantial evening meals in the good range of local restaurants!

There is plenty to do around Füssen, but the 'must do' activity is to visit Neuschwanstein Castle, which is a very pleasant hours walk away, or can be reached by bus.

The Kurhotel Jakob comes highly recommended; I would stay here again without a doubt if I were in the area.

The hotel is cozy and pleasent. Great location, with a charming foot-path to the old town along the river. Nice homey breakfast . convenient parking.
The only downside is the bed, which has two way-too-soft single mattresses, that kill your back.
Putting that aside - a good choice.

We enjoyed our stay a lot in this hotel. It's clean, the rooms have a balcony and the sauna was great. It's a bit of walking to the old city but if you're by car then you have private parking space.
All in all very recommendable and great service.

Reasonably priced small hotel. Quiet and comfortable rooms. Helpful and efficient owner-managers. Tasty breakfast. As others mentioned, it's a short walk from the centre of Fussen, so a good choice for people travelling by car.

You really need to be careful if u want to book this hotel, its big risk to damage your good mood for vacation! The hotel owner has no commitment on the booking at all! After got the confirmation for a standroom claims on 1st or 2nd floor,when u check in, u could be led to a underground basement room with dark light and old furniture! The owner will only tell u" this is the only room I have, I can do nothing. U can choose to take or not as every hotel is fully booked now" That's exactly happened to us! They overbooked their resource to ensure their room fulfill rate. In our all conversation, they never direct answer my question on why I got their confirmation for the stand room in1st or 2nd floor while they said all rooms are occupied! They even ask us to go out looking for other hotel rather than they do it! Even worse is, The male owner even shoot at us, said we damage their dating (oh my god, how can he said that?! Why he complain before our complain on damage our vacation? If they handle the booking properly, who gonner to call them back? Its themselves damage their dating not us!) he also complain that they cant rent out that basement room twice when we go for dinner as our luggage is in the room( u can imagine how they treat their customer, they even want to rent that basement when they are fixing our issue!) he even shout some German words with very bad mood, everyone can imagine what kind of word he would say! It's really rude and unpolite! It's really disappointed!

Room Tip: be careful if you really want to book this hotel, make sure the owner REALLY reserve your room!

From the beginning of our stay, the family owned nature of this hotel was evident and nothing was too much trouble. Even our late arrival due to a train strike was no problem. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was typically German and excellent. The hotel is 10 mins walk along a well lit, level footpath to the centre of Fussen which offers numerous restaurants, and good rail and bus links to local attractions.

I would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking forward to a few days relaxation.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during a trip to visit the local castles. The staff and service were outstanding, rooms were clean and spacious, beds were comfortable and cozy. Hotels in Fussen can be very expensive, so the price was a bit high and finding the hotel the first time was a bit difficult. I highly recommend/advise anyone to take a taxi from the train station to the hotel, especially in hot weather, as you need to go up and down a few times and a taxi shouldn't be too expensive. After that you will find a path by the river to take you back to town :)
