Hotel Am Hopfensee

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is well positioned and we had a nice big room overlooking the lake with a balcony. The bathroom was food with a nice spa bath but the water pressure is a bit low in the shower. Breakfast is very good with a nice selection including freshly squeezed orange juice. We had a poor experience in the restaurant with very slow service, waiting nearly two hours for our main courses. After complaining the staff did refund the cost of the bottle of wine we had drunk whilst waiting and offered complimentary liqueurs.

We unfortunately only visited for one night on our holiday. We would have loved to stay another night. The room was excellent, staff very friendly, breakfast also excellent, and to top it all an excellent location. We had dinner in the restaurant next to the hotel - same owner. Very good.

When arriving at the hotel on the banks of the Hopfensee we already knew that this was going to be a nice stay. We could reserve a parking space at the back for € 10 per 24 hours and this is a good spot to keep your car out of the sun and out of sight. We had a room on the top floor with a roof window and as it was quite hot we had the room open during the night. Not too much noise though. Beds were not so good and this was a bit disappointing. For the rest nothing to complain: good breakfast, nice seating, terrace in front with lake view, possibility to rent bicycles for € 14 per day which was good, also a restaurant in the hotel and another restaurant in the building nextdoor (Riviera) with Italian food and great pizzas and ice cream (and a bit cheaper too). Friendly hotel staff and free parking in front (only one must reset change the parking sign every 4 hours during the day). Hopfensee offers plenty of sightseeing and this hotel is a great place to start exploring the region: by foot, by bike or by car.

Stayed here for a couple nights on our honeymoon. great view of the lake with the mountains in the background. the staff was very attentive, and spoke english very well, thankfully for us. was very helpful with recommendations and directions as well. room was nice and clean. great place to stay if visiting the castles in the Fussen, Germany area, without staying in the super tourist area.

This is a three star hotel. The only amazing thing about this hotel is the breathtaking view. Just opposite the hotel is a lake and behind the lake are a range of snow capped mountains. You can for for a walk/run by the lake. Simply beautiful. Hotel is modern but bathrooms are very small and the shower cubicle is fit for kids and not adults. Fail. Room is large and spacious. Good closet space and the balcony is an added advantage. The hotel has a decent restaurant as well. Good food. The breakfast is great!! Good selection and variety. Freshly squeezed orange juice was amazing!! The breakfast area overlooks the scenic mountains. The hotel has some great positives but the size of the bathroom and the lack of water pressure is a fail for me. Good for an overnight stay. Also, location is excellent too. A short 15 minute drive to the famous Neuschwanstein castle.

It's a must to request for a room with the lake view ! The view is so stunning that I could just sit at the balcony looking outside all I saw pictures in the hotel during the summer months , I'm sure the view will be even more charming in summer when you can see all the way up to the mountains while the swans are swimming at the lake !

Effortless & peaceful stay to visit castles, hike, bike and enjoy beautiful Bavaria! Great value, beautiful lake view from the room with the balcony - definitely worth paying extra. Very nice walking path around the lake, easy parking, good restaurant.

We can recommend this place for people who want to switch off and relax. They have nice spa area with sauna steam room and are offering massages and beauty treatments. Room was good sized with modern furniture.

The hotel is actually some distance from the actual Fussen town, so access may not be easy if you don't have a car. There is an Edeka supermarket halfway between Fussen and the hotel, and there were no other stores or supermarkets at the lakeside itself. We booked a lake view room and it did look nice at dusk and in the early morning. However, this also meant that the room was just above the bar which also faces the front of the hotel, and there was a significant amount of thumping music given that it was a Saturday night. However, it did stop before midnight, but later there was also some noise along the corridor. Parking was free in the public lots on the lakeside if available, otherwise the hotel charges 8 euro for parking. The breakfast was good. Dinner at the adjacent Rivera (Italian) restaurant was also good.

A small hotel just a few minutes drive from Fussen and the castles. Right on the lake and in a small village, with a choice of restaurants only a stroll away. Spacious room with balcony overlooking the lake with the Alps reflected in the waters. Away from the tourist crowds. Calm atmosphere and good breakfast, also with an incredible view. Friendly and helpful staff that spoke english. I am thinking of returning soon.
