We have been in Fuessen from 3 to 6 of August 2014 and Kurhotel Jakob is a wonderful place where to stay. It is located on the river 10 minutes by walking from downtown and it is a very nice, clean, peaceful place where to stay. Frau Jakob is a very very nice person and she suggests where to go and where to eat.
When I go back to Fuessen I will certainly go there!

I stayed here as a base for hiking and exploring the area. My single room was a nice size but the bathroom and shower was a little small. The room was very clean with a comfortable bed.

Within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Fussen.

The breakfast was typical German with nice breads, meats, cheeses, and cereal.

I would recommend this to couples or single travelers. The tight quarters might make it harder for western families.

This is a Kurhotel, so really a B&B. They do have some discount deals with various tourist attractions, so ask about that when you check in.

We got a good deal on Booking.com. The room was very nice, clean (renovated within the last 5 years I would say). Curtains were good at blocking light in the morning. Enough electrical outlets to recharge all our gadgets.

The location is a little bit out of the way. You're driving through some fairly narrow streets to get there and the parking spots are rather small. The upshot is that it's very quiet and you have some nice nature views out the balcony. Yet you can still walk to a lot of Füssen. If you want to go to the center with the highest-ranked eateries you're probably looking at driving though.

Breakfast was the typical hearty German variety. Lots of fresh breads/rolls/pretzels, cold cuts and spreads, cereals, fruit, eggs, even some cake. You won't go hungry, no matter what your dietary restrictions.

WiFi in the room was generally good. There were times where the internet was a little sluggish. It's good enough to look up websites for travel planning, but I wouldn't count on streaming any movies.

No elevator. The proprietor will help carry your suitcases up the stairs, but I wouldn't come in here with an old-fashioned travel trunk (not that it would fit in the parking spaces anyway).

Booked a family room and we were allocated a loft room.
As it was raining, it really was a cosy room to be in with the skylight open slightly.
Stayed in for dinner (rain). That was quite nice and breakfast was sufficient for the four of us.
Being just off the main road it was nice and quiet, even with the windows open.
Very clean room and the bathroom was spotless with adequate amenities.
Parking was limited but we did get a spot in the garden.
We all got a good nights sleep for the trek up to the castle!

Hotel Jakob is a cute little Bed and Breakfast up in the hills over Fussen.
I would probably give it a 3.5 if there was an option.
10 minute walk to the train station.
15 minute walk to McD's.
Very nice trails and sights to see right out the front door.
We had a rental car, they have two spots out front (we were able to secure one easy). They have more parking just across the street.
Our room was near the check in. We had a nice little patio overlooking the front lawn.
Furnishings are a bit dated, but, clean and comfortable. We slept great.
The bathroom is a bit tight.
It has a square corner shower with two half doors that slide open. BARELY enough room to slip in and out.
I'm not a small guy and was able to take a shower no problem.
I joked about lathering up the walls and spinning to get clean, it was not that bad. Reminded me of a shower we had in an old RV years ago. :)
The family that owns and operates the hotel are very friendly.

We stayed 2 nights in Fussen during our road trip through southern Germany. We fell in love with the town, and this hotel definitely contributed to our positive experience. Yes it is pricey for a 3-star hotel, but the price includes free parking and breakfast. So it's a pretty good deal. The hosts are terrific - polite, friendly and efficient. The breakfast is quite good, and there is a decent selection of food. The room is basic and clean, but it's also very charming and cute. Sure the decor is kind of outdated, but we think that it adds to the charm. The room is very large, and the bed is very comfortable. The shower isn't very modern, but it's sufficient. The hotel is within 10-minute walking of the city centre. We don't mind that walk as it's very scenic and along the water. Because it's a bit outside, it's very quiet, perfect for relaxing and sleeping. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is ok, but it is definitely dated. Nothing wrong, just overpriced for what it is.
Bathroom and room are dated in the decor, drinking glasses were dirty and the shower took a long time to drain. Friendly staff. Breakfast was reasonable European continental.
