Reviewed May 27, 2012

The hotel is located directly across the lake Hopfen, if you're lucky enough, you would get the room with the amazing view to the lake and the Alps. Even our room was quite at the backside of the hotel, but we still got the incredible side view from the balcony.

The hotel provides 3-4 free parking space just infront of the hotel, otherwise, if I'm not mistaken, with the local tourist card one can park at any parking space along the street.

The room was decent, quite spacious, and clean, the cleaning lady stopped by every morning to fix the bed and clean the room. There was a big cupboard to keep our belongings and a nicely designed shower room, although the shower door was acting kind of funny. And of course separate toilet, but they kind of missed the sink in there.

The breakfast buffet was the same every morning, but the service was great. The waitress greeted us and offered us coffee, they even provided us with complimentary sparkling wine since my husband told them it was my birthday. And at every breakfast the hotel provided us with a piece of paper full with the list of possible events and activities around the area.

We did not try the restaurant, but my husband did try the sauna, and it was okay.

There were not much entertainment around the area, just few restaurants but one can walk around the beautiful Hopfensee, hike up to the Hopfen ruin, do the Füssen city tour, or drive to Hohenschwangau to visit the beautiful Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein Castle. The tourist information is just around the corner from the hotel.

The receptionist was very kind as well, she even gave us advice on where to tank.

On our first night, there was this group of teenage tourists, somekind of school tour, and at night we figured out that the wall between rooms is not as thick as we thought it should be. We thought that was the end of our vacation, but then the groups left the next morning, so everything turned out to be great. :))

Stayed here during May. The hotel is overlooking the lake. The area is quite and very relaxing. I stayed for 3 nights, I had a car (by the way free parking) so being away from the city center was not an issue but rather good choice since the price per room is better than the center rate plus the service and quality of service.
The rate included a breakfast which was very good. Also I had a dinner once and I enjoined it.
Definitely I would return back.

Fantastic location on the lake with lovely mountain views. Very close to Neuschwanstein/Hohenschwangau castles and the ideal location for people traveling to the castles by car. We were considering staying in Fussen or Schwangau and were very pleased by our choice to stay at Hotel am Hopfensee instead. The rooms were modernised and very clean and nice (although the suites are yet to be modernised I believe). Free parking across the road from the hotel so no need to pay for the underground parking. We had dinner at Fischerhuette Restaurant across the road from the hotel - the most amazing duck and so cheap! Would definitely recommend.

Visited Am Hopfensee Hotel on the recommendation of friends and cannot praise it highly enough. The recent renovations and the brand new Spa just made everything perfect. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and had both continental and cooked food on offer. The sister hotel next door served the most wonderful authentic Italian and Bavarian food so no need to travel into Fussen for meals in the evening. Our room 203 was spotless and spacious and tastefully decorated and had a balcony with a great view of the lake. The new Spa was a welcome relaxation after a long walk round the frozen lake. Would definitely make a point of visiting again in the future.

The only good thing about this hotel is location - right infront of the lake, good view on Alps, 5 min from Füssen and Neuschwanstein castle. But that was just it. Hotel is very old. Our triple room 105 was smelly, especially bathroom, even towels didn't feel being clean. It had nothing to do with the pictures that were placed in booking.com - we felt really cheated with so many nice guesthouses around. Breakfast was also basic, and you need to get up as early as 7 to get your croissant, otherwise you'll eat yesterday's bread. I would love to come back during the winter time but never to this hotel.

We stayed for 6 nights in June,2010 The Hotel is under renovation at present but our room which was facing the beautiful lake was large, clean although dated.
It is excellent value for money and we would return as the area is so stunning, the friendly hotel staff make the stay very enjoyable. We opted for 1/2 pension which is a great deal as the meals were wholesome and large by Australian standards.

Hotel is situated right next to a lake. So out of the window we had a beautiful view on the lake and mountains. If you like jogging or just walking it is a good place for it. Furniture in the room was older, but on the other hand it was clean. Bathroom was nice, clean as well. Staff at the reception was very helpful. We stayed only over night, so didnt have to pay for parking. Breakfast was very good, wide range.
