This hotel was remarkable for the lengths it went to catering to its Japanese tour groups. The 'table reserved' signs were in Japanese and miso soup was standard breakfast fare to give you an idea...You should expect bus-loads of tourists to arrive, flood the lobby, disperse, trickle back downstairs to use the internet, and crowd the breakfast room and lobby the next morning. Free internet is only available in the lobby, so you can't miss this ritual. Also, the smoking area seems to be immediately outside the wide-open front lobby door, so expect to be gassed while you surf.
The location could be good or bad depending on what you want from your hotel. It was a bit far (and up a large hill) from the train station if you're on foot, but it is charmingly tucked away in the woods next to the river. There are pedestrian paths that extend in either direction along the river which are a pleasant way to kill some time or get to town (15 min walk to Austria or old town Fussen).
This was the largest room of our trip (7 hotels in all). Everything was clean. The bathroom had shelf space for toiletries and the shower was raised with a shallow tub that was great for hand-washing clothes and not flooding the bathroom with every shower. The wardrobe was huge and handy for drying washed clothes. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Every room has a small balcony which helps keep the room cool in the summer.
Breakfast was pretty good for hotels in this price range in Europe. Scrambled eggs, sausage (more of a hot dog really), yogurt, cereal, bread, cheese, lunch meats, juice, coffee, and the aforementioned miso soup. The tour groups don't get moving super early, so it is possible to sneak in before the hordes.
