A couple of weeks ago my parents and I stayed here for two nights. The hotel is charming, the location is perfect, however they have a few things to work on, for example the room's temperature. We stayed in a room on the third floor (highest floor, below the attic) and due to the wonderful weather, we had horrible nights... The room gets VERY hot and there is no A/C or fans available. At night the temperatures goes down, but sleeping with the windows open (which helps with the temperature) implies getting up at 5:00 a.m. when the sun starts to rise.
The king size bed (2 twin size mattresses together) was comfortable, but the sofa bed was awful! I am 5'10 (1.78) and had to sleep on the bottom half of the bed because where it folds the mattress breaks and a huge grade separation occurs: the upper part of the bed is at least an inch higher than the bottom half of the bed.
The breakfast is OK - nothing fancy but good enough. The breakfast terrace is very nice.
On the pros: the view is unbeatable! We had an unobstructed view of the valley and the oldest part of town. The owner is very friendly and helpful. It is located on the outer wall of the city and just two blocks from the main square. And it definitely has a very charming feeling to it.
I have to say we had very unique weather during our stay (high 30's in june) which is very odd for this region, so our inconvenience with the temperature is not the hotel's reality, however, I had to share. If this was the usual I would not have given it a 4 star review, but a 3 star max.
However I will stay at the Herrnschloesschen next time I come to this beautiful town, it is just a couple of feet away from the Burg Hotel and it is much nicer... their prices are higher than those of the Burg, but they are a 4 star hotel, and opened recently.
