this is a family run hotel and their attentiveness shows they care about their guests. We had a lovely double room that appeared to have been recently renovated. Our double room was adequate size, had comfortable bed, modern ensuite and was quiet. On site off street parking works fine. Hotel does not have a lift but hosts willingly provide assistance...

Great location to visit the castles and local sites; however, our room was right above the main street and the noise was awful, especially on the weekend. Do ask for a room in the back to have a more pleasant stay. Overall, great location.

"Why did we only stay for three nights?" is the question my husband and I kept asking each other on our way home from Fussen. The Hotel Zum Hechten made our stay in this lovely, medieval town, complete. The hosts were attentive, charming and very helpful. They spoke perfect English and made us feel completely at home.

My second stay at the hotel. You basically have to go through some of the pedestrian areas to get there - but they have parking in the back. When you walk out their front door, you're in the middle og this beautiful German city. You can by vouchers for the castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau at the reception desk, so you... More

We spent one enjoyable evening here. The room was clean and comfortable with free wifi internet. The people who run this hotel are really the best. Friendly, helpful and kind. We arrived and the main road to the hotel had just been made into a pedestrian only road--apparently that day. I walked to the hotel and asked for assistance and... More

Spent two nights in this delightful family (3 generations on premises) run hotel. Included breakfast was wonderful with service provided by the grandparents. Had an excellent dinner in their family run restaurant adjacent to the lobby. Some rooms on front of building may have a problem as there are some very bright street lights right outside of the windows, but... More

This was our second stay in the Hechten. We were happy to go back as it represents such good value for money, and the service from family members and long serving retainers is charming in an old fashioned way rarely found these days. Our room this time was in the new block at the back overlooking the car park, so... More

This year we decided to take a lakes and mountains holiday instead of our usual beach holiday and drove down through France and Germany to Bavaria staying at this hotel for two nights before travelling on to Berchtesgaden by Lake Konigssee.

The Altstadt Hotel zum Hechten is right off the main town square of Füssen. This is a nice 'gasthof' style hotel, with smaller rooms which are very clean and well-kept. I had a room in the back courtyard area (around the parking area). The staff was very friendly as well as helpful in answering questions and arranging for tickets to... More

If you have decided to see Neuschwanstein Castle, I would recommend to stay in Fussen. It is a small and nice city in few km from the Castle. We stayed at its Zum hechten hotel. I don't like much the local traditional-style hotels, which is a matter of taste, the service was very impressing. Very warm and attentive staff and... More
