I believe in rating a place based on its intended price-point and overall ability to deliver on the basics. In this case, The Goethe Hotel is not a bedecked high-rise hotel with a concierge desk, but a guesthouse- small, quiant, and quiet. It had the feel of a hostel in some ways- casual, bulletin boards advertizing local excursions, a front... More

Breakfast (7-10am): I think we only paid about EUR10 more for the B&B option per room all in all about EUR100. Well worth it. You will not be able to find a café close by to have breakfast outside of the hotel (no Starbucks in sight) and the price is reasonable considering you get a nice buffet. You will have... More

Regardless of its size or star ratings, the main things I look for in any hotel are that it be clean, comfortable and quiet, that it have a good location, and that it represent good value for whatever price sector it competes in. This hotel surpassed all my criteria. On top of these attributes, the breakfast buffet was great and... More

We arrived in Staufen without a reservation and were pleased to find a room here. The location is central to the square as well as the train station. The staff was very efficient and pleasant, the room was good with a small balcony, and the breakfast was generous. Pretty good value for Staufen; we would stay again.

The the rooms are abt €100 per night which is a little expensive. But what you get is very clean rooms, a really comfortable bed, a central location in staufen and rooms with a castle view. Breakfast is ok and of the usual continental menu. I would recommend it and stay again

While traveling from Austria to France we spent one night in Staufen. Rooms were clean, comfortable and included a full breakfast. The village of Staufen is wonderful, mostly pedestrian only just a few steps from the front door of the hotel. Good value.

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.

“If you are right near the front door, you will hear more foot traffic and conversations.”

“Room Tip: We had the corner room 15 on 1st floor, which had a view of the castle (lit up at night). I am guessing therefore the uneven numbers of all the floors have that view. All rooms however have a wooden balcony with seats, nice for stepping out into the morning sun. The even rooms have a view on next door’s garden with fruit trees.”
