We stayed at the hotel Alemannenhof for the total of six nights. Upon check in, we were asked if we would like a a Schwarzwald card. If you are staying two or more nights, it is free and entitles you to the use of the bus lines, trains, free and reduced admission to various places throughout the outlined area of the Black Forest. Processing of the card supposedly takes a few hours so it is best to inform the hotel you would like it as soon as possible.
We were assigned room 18 which was a double room with the typical two twin beds pushed together. The toilet was separate from the shower and sink, which is a plus as you don’t have to wait for someone to leave the bathroom to use the sink or shower. The surprise was that the shower was located almost in the middle of the room and if the curtain around the glass enclosure were not pulled, the other occupant of the room would have a free show. Since there was a curtain around it, we did not find it problematic. The room had a balcony offering a side view of the lake. The room was comfortable and clean. The only negative things I found with the room were that since it was located near the elevator, we could hear people getting in and out at times and the fire escape from the hallway if opened, would open directly onto our balcony. We left the door to the balcony open at night despite this, but placed something in front of it to alert us if anyone were trying to enter.
We added the half board which was 35 Euros per person, but discontinued it after the second night as we found the service to be a bit slower for our tastes. Dinner the first night lasted 2 hours. Though many people seemed not to mind the relaxed pace, we preferred a bit faster as we like to take a walk in the evening. Perhaps this could improve if service personnel were assigned to specific areas of the dining room rather than waiting on tables throughout the restaurant.
The food was delicious and there was a choice between a fish entrée, meat or poultry entrée or vegetarian entrée. Each selection was accompanied by an appetizer, soup, entrée and dessert. Guests could also add a salad from the salad bar for an additional 4.50 Euros. The servers were professional though not overly friendly.
The breakfast buffet was bountiful with fruits, yoghurts, assorted juices, assorted teas, an array of sliced meats and fish from the Black Forest area, a selection of breads as well as scrambled eggs, sausages and sautéed vegetables. As far of breakfasts go while travelling in Europe, we found this to be one of the best we have encountered. A previous reviewer stated that people who spoke English were not seated by the window, but we did not find this to be the case. People had a choice of where to sit for breakfast and seat selected was only restricted by tables which were already occupied.
Prior to our stay, we had inquired about laundry and were informed that we could use the in room laundry bag and would be charged 8 Euro for the bag which we found to be a great deal. The maid picked up the laundry in the morning and at 7:59 p.m., we had our laundry back nice and clean.
Wireless internet was available for free in the main hotel. Though the connection did not appear to be high speed, it was adequate. Your Schwarzwald card enables you to take the boat into Titisee , from Titisee to the hotel or round trip. As you are entitled to one trip every 8 hours, we took it one way and walked back to the hotel when we were finished.
Other reviewers commented on the hotel not being actually located in Titisee, we found this to be preferable as the streets of Titisee got rather crowded during the day with all the tourists. The town was about ¾ of a mile which was a pleasant walk or it could be acceded by the bus. The hotel also offered free rides to the station and other locations if requested.
My husband and I discussed the possibility of staying at the same hotel when we return to Titisee. I was in favor of it as I find the view etc to be excellent. My husband on the other hand prefers a smaller more personable hotel. The bottom line is that we had a very pleasant stay at the Allemannenhof.
