We found this hotel thru the Flair Hotel book which is an association of hotel/breweries. The hotel itself is average and a bit tattered at the edges. The evening we stayed the temperatures have been in the 90s and the hotel lacks air conditioning. This was a bit uncomfortable from my American perspective. We sated on a Monday and the restaurant was closed. Apparently the brewery is in another location. The breakfast was included in the reasonable room price. The hotel lacked the wow factor, but the location is great. It sits at the end of the a 4-5 block pedestrian only shopping/restaurant city center area. The buildings are well-maintained and in use with some dating back to 1300. The area seemed as if it was used more by the locals as opposed to a tourist destination. The area had many walking trails which highlighted a number of beautiful homes. Adjacent to the city is a castle and a monastery both worth a visit. Ellwangen was a pleasant surprise. If I traveled to Ellwangen again, I'd try a different hotel.
