“Good location, average hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2009

Der Furstenhof could be a really good hotel - the location is excellent and the rates are reasonable - but little things let it down. Our room was big, but old-fashioned and tired-looking, with a dud bulb in the lighting and no toiletries in the bathroom. Although the parking was free, there were very few places for such a large hotel. However, the service was friendly and the breakfast buffet was impressive. We enjoyed our stay there but I don't know if we would go back.

Very pleased with my stay here - the owners have made good use of the old building including a nice Bavarian restaurant in the basement. The location right on the central town square couldn't be more convenient (only problem is that the main train station is 10 mins drive out of town).

Avoid rooms at the end of the hotel if you need to connect to the internet - I had to change rooms halfway through because the signal wasn't strong enough, but the staff were very helpful. I'm also not sure whether any of the rooms would have step-free access.

Stayed here for one night (Fri. to Sat.). The outside of the hotel and the public areas look very impressive with nice furnishings and original architecture. However, the rooms need updating and our room (number 108) which faced the back of the hotel was hot (no air con) and noisy. The bathroom was clean but had 70s beige ceramic tiles and the bathtub was clogged so that I was standing in water up to my ankles when showering. There was dust on the bed head & foot boards and on the desk and night tables. It was so hot in the room, though the outside temp. wasn't that bad, that we had to sleep with the window wide open. We were disturbed ALL night by traffic, loud people, and delivery trucks to the nearby supermarket. Needless to say, we didn't get much sleep. Parking was not a problem when checking in, but later after returning from dinner, not a single parking spot was to be had in neither the outside parking lot nor the parking garage. We ended up having to pay 6 Euros to park in a public parking garage which is quite a walk from the hotel. Pretty bad when they advertise free parking. One positive thing is that the hotel is right down town and close to shopping. Considering what you get for 72 Euros for a double room, we wouldn't recommend staying here.
