“Comfortable and great location”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

We spent two nights in Staufen and loved it. Our first choice hotel (on the square) was full. Goethe Hotel turned out to be an excellent second choice. It is a three-minute walk from the center of town. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. From our balcony, we had a nice view of the castle that overlooks the town.

Room Tip: The castle view from our balcony was nice.

We ended up staying in Staufen for one day as for some reason we had trouble with availability in Freiburg but it turned out to be a wonderful stroke of luck as not only is Staufen a wonderfully quaint and picturesque town, but we arrived on the first day of a special festival celebrating the history of it's town.

We arrived to discover that our room wouldn't be ready until 3pm, so we parked our bags and went off to explore (the friendly girl at reception gave me a fantastic town map - one of the best I've ever had as a freebie) Staufen was a lot bigger than we imagined, there are plenty of cafes and restaurants and lots of little art shops. We had lunch whilst watching the setup of the stages in preparation for the evening's event and then went for a little hike up the hill to the castle where Faust supposedly got taken to hell by the devil. Some simply amazing views from the top, and the walk takes you through wonderful sloping vineyards.

We got back to find our room was bright and spacious with a little balcony that you could sit on. There weren't so many mod cons - no safe, small basic tv, no airconditioning that I remember. However, it was very clean and comfortable enough for our night's stay and the shower was nice and hot. The staff were very friendly and gave us two tickets for free internet when I asked for it. Breakfast was included and had a reasonable selection of the usual fare.

All in all, a rather pleasant stay bolstered by the coincidence of a fun-filled festival!

I stayed here as part of a conference. While initially displeased to be removed from the actual location, I found Staufen to be a lovely little town, with numerous good restaurents and beautiful sightseeing.
The rooms were clean, well laid out. Each room has a private balcony with roll-down shutters. Our view included the garden of an adjacent property and the castle on the hill (especially lovely at night).
The manager was very accommodating of our special dietary needs. She bought gluten free breads and crackers from a local bakery and lactose free dairy products as well.
