    « Living "on the wall" »

    My room was attached to the old city wall, and was on 2 floors. Entry onto the steel upper floor also held the bathroom and closet. Down the steel stairs, past the deeply recessed window in the old city wall, and you find the large, comfortable bed and desk and TV. Quite an unusual layout, but fun. Dead silent rooms, since you are encased in either concrete and steel or the 3-foot thick wall! Reception was OK, dinner outside in the courtyard was served from the excellent restaurant across the narrow street. I didn't have a chance to take the brewery tour, but it looked nice through the windows from the breakfast area in the restaurant. All through the hotel there were evidences of the brewery, from bier shampoo to various unusual bier themed foods on the menu, to souvenir bier-related bottled and jars full of nice edibles and potables. Certainly a place for beer fans!

    « Funky place, out of the ordinary »

    I might be unpopular with some readers for saying this, but in my mind, ?Bier? and ?Kultur? are a contradiction in terms. And yet, somehow this hotel almost pulls it off. Room design is rather funky, with the bed in the center of the room (most comfortable!), different nooks and crannies for storing personal items, and a couch/writing desk at the foot of the bed, facing the window. Service at reception was not terribly friendly, the restaurant was good, both in terms of quality of food and service.

    « Disappointed »

    This was our first over night stop on a 3 week European vacation - not what I was hoping to start with. This hotel - or at least the room we had - was NOT as advertised. Bare concrete walls, painted with some wood screwed on to it. Very small space - bathroom [w/c] and shower is separate areas. Staff was very curt and abrupt - not very helpful. Parking was nowhere near the property. We've never had this many issues or been this disappointed with a Best Western. Not a place I would feel good about recommending.

    « Nice duplex rooms »

    Near the city center, German style, nice hotel, interesting rooms, duplex style, one option with bedroom and the other with bathroom in the second floor, room style in wood or in iron, both makes a nice ambient. Rooms as well as the other facilities are very clean, only reception is a bit small. Restaurant is right across the street. Reccomendable

    « Cool suite in quaint Hotel »

    This was my second stay at this hotel. My daughter and I were there for a fencing tournament in Laupheim. This hotel was located in the next town. We were upgraded to a Bier Suite with an awesome loft and fun lights. The hotel restaurant is over 300 years old and has excellent home made beer and food. Great for one or two nights. We would like to return and do the Bierkultur tours in the future.

    « Hidden gem of a boutique hotel »

    We stayed overnight at this small, modern hotel situated in the heart of Ehingen. Best Western has bought into the BierKultur, a system of breweries in the city of Ehingen that provide amazing beers (and food and even skin care products) for a series of restaurants. Attached to the very modern hotel is a restaurant where one can dine and get a wonderful continental breakfast -the best we had during our 12-day stay all over Germany). Our room was a very modern 2-floor minisuite with a balcony, and it was a free upgrade from a slightly smaller room that I had booked online, they decided to give us a little bit more room for our daughter, it seems. Everything was new, modern and in excellent working condition. The garage was easily accessible and affordable. To be honest we felt that we didn't see what else the hotel could provide to make it into a 5-star rating, it was that nice.

    « Brief but very pleasant stay »

    We really enjoyed the hotel and room that offered good space in a modern layout. The hotel specializes in beer culture and there various courses you can book. Check in/out is quick. There is outdoor free parking, and, there is parking in the hotel garage for 5 Euro per day. The are a lot of lovely small towns in the area and beautiful countryside. This is the perfect place if you are in this area. Booking online is easy.

    « Simple but nice hotel »

    Simple but nice hotel in Ehingen "downtown". Friendly staff, clean rooms and recently renovated rooms. Breakfast is served in another building across the road, the breakfast buffet was absolutely ok for the price.

    « One night stay got business meeting »

    I would certainly recommend this hotel should you happen to be in the area. The rooms are well appointed and good value. I had a suite which was actually a duplex so the seating area downstairs was completely superset from the bedroom. The only issue was that the bathroom was downstairs with some rather tricky stairs to negotiate! The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly.

    « Cycling the Danube Donauschingen to Vienna 900 Kilometeres Hotel Important! »

    From the outside it didn't look like a a traditional Best western and I was bit wary. However the room was amazing a bit like scandavian style all in wood really quirky and we were pleasantly surprised. very comfortable the best pillows in the world!! I have a neck problem and these were superb unlike all the other hotels which have pyramid stylepillows that go flat with no support in them think they maybe feather pillows and appears to be the German style of pillow.!!! Secure storage for Bike Right in the centre of this pretty town shops and restaurants nearby. I can't review the Hotel Adler because we never ate there however we were going to but the owners were quite unwelcoming. They appeared reluctant to seat us then we sat down and were given a german menu and asked the the waiter for the english one. He was so abrupt his tone of voice was offensive and told us to wait!! I stood up and said we are not staying here and walked out!

    « Nice room, good food, but next time I'd avoid the stairs »

    We got the premier suite (top level) and in all the premier rooms they said you had to climb stairs to get to the bedroom but the only bathroom is down below on the first floor. Narrow stairs. Otherwise We found this very nice--could open door to deck and windows. It was too warm in bedroom upstairs until we turned off the air conditioner (thermostat is downstairs) and opened the windows. The warm air rises and the upper level got hot. And even the lower level never got as cool as we set the thermostat for. 9 euros each for an excellent breakfast with the usual cold buffet plus hot scrambled eggs and bacon, also Nutella and bread and jams. A waitress (at their restaurant across very narrow street) and especially the front desk representative spoke excellent English. The only phone in the room was upstairs and you had to read their book on the coffee table downstairs to learn how to call the front desk. A note by the phone with the front desk number (not 0) would be helpful. Free wifi. Coffee maker. Cute little town, nice to walk around. Hotel has good elevator. We also had dinner at their restaurant across the street, and it was excellent. Nice big bed, must have been king size.

    « No qualms going here again »

    Stopped for 1 night, it was warn, clean, spacious and well appointed with very friendly staff and a lovely restaurant next door which had amazing food. I would definitely recommend it, as all Best Westerns I have stayed in, it was a good standard and you know what to expect.

    « Comfortable small town hotel »

    Stayed 28/7 to 31/7/2015, business trip Family owned property, who also owns a good restaurant, just opposite to the hotel & a brewery. Clean & comfortable room, divided into a lower & upper floor for sleeping. The only draw back I found for a 4 star rated property is that no food after 9.30pm, but there are restaurants nearby.

    « Second stay: will definitely go back again »

    This was our second stay in Ehingen and the second time we've stayed at this modern hotel, owned and run by the family that own that 300+ year old brewpub over the road. There are plenty of nice touches around the hotel, with a strong beer/brewing theme (including very tasty "beer jam" at breakfast), and an on-demand minibar service (with very reasonable prices). The breakfast was great each day, with the space growing to accommodate additional guests on busy mornings (we were there four nights, with the Thursday being a bank holiday). The beer in Schwanen is excellent, and the ABC Brewery tour is highly recommended (the brewer - Micha - is also often seen around the hotel and is very friendly and fluent in English). The food served in the evenings is now more "gastro pub" than on our last visit but is well worth trying (we ate here on two of our four nights) as it gives a modern spin on some German/Schwabian classics. Ehingen is known as the "Bierkulturstadt" (Beer Culture City) as it boasts 4 breweries: not bad for a town of just 25k people! There are also excellent walking and cycling options in the area, including a "Bierwanderweg" around the town (and the neighbouring village of Berg, 2km to the south).
