Cleanliness and coziness No
Very nice hotel, rooms were spacious and clean. Dinner was lovely, just what you need after a long trip. Breakfast was fresh. Staff were always happy to help even with a language barrier between us, even helping us save money at the local amenities. We will be going back to stay. 2 floorboards creaked but it did add to the character and there was no hot breakfast.
Friendly staff, central location, good kitchen Inconvenient mattresses, A double bed has two separate mattresses.
Central position of the Hotel in the city is very good. We were kindly served. To check in we had to phone a mobile number. Breakfast room looked like a train station hall with large tables.
The owner is very friendly...The rooms are clean.. The town is cozy
Great localization, good kitchen, nice breakfast
lovely setting had trouble finding the hotel and language barrier was a bit tough
The restaurant was convenient and very good. Rooms quite large and very nice and clean. Convienient parking as well. Staff of the restaurant made too many assumptions before letting us speak, so we missed trying the kind of local beer we wanted.
great value great location
Lovely and clean, great food... a bit pricey but worth it The walls were rendered and very rough. Our 2 year old fell against the wall and grazed himself badly. As ours was a family room and the bunks for the children were against the wall this was a bit dangerous.
Our family room was very big and comfortable. The location was great, very quaint small village. The staff was friendly. A slight language barrier, but that really wasn't a problem.
Convenient, great breakfast, friendly staff, free internet, traditional feel, informal and easy going, very pretty location in the town parking is a bit hit and miss, limited psace.
Room,bathroom,TV at room,the little, quiet town,lift in the hotel Some rooms are with old stufs,also in the room for breakfast.
We stayed in ''apartment 1''. This apartment has two rooms and for two more extra people, they set up a sofa bed in the living room, but it was comfortable to sleep in. In the living room, there was a mini kitchen also. The staffs are friendly, welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was very good. The hotel is very close to the Blautopf. The elevator in the hotel was a plus also.
Spacious room- very clean and tidy No problems
Already the third time when we stayed at the Ochsen. Excellent food, great breakfast, quiet, traditional yet refurbished and modern rooms, highly recommended. ...the restaurant is closed on Sunday
Employees reported that the hotel was great, they liked their rooms, the view, and the service. None
Very spacious room, large and comfortable beds, nice romantic restaurant, family atmosphere. Good base for shopping in Hugo Boss Outlet, Metzingen Outlet City, only 10 minutes drive. Small and old TV set, no hair-dryer. If you don't like sweet breakfast, it is lean choice. WiFi is not free, but 5 euro for 3 days. I didn't see designated smoking area, although I didn't ask for it because we are allowed to smoke in room.
Location, restaurant, comfort Parking is a problem. Fortunately, we had reserved a space, but they are very limited
Room was very good. Breakfast was included but had a limited selection.
If you want to experience true German hospitality, this is the place. So laid back and friendly. Easy to get to, and a short drive to so many wonderful places. Far exceeded our expectations. We were sorry to leave.
The bedrooms were very good, clean, comfortable and a good size, and also well equipped. We were disappointed that the restaurant was closed on the night that we wished to dine there. We had specifically chosen this hotel because we had heard marvellous things about the restaurant. It may have been closed only that evening, but we would have liked to have been told beforehand. Also when we enquired about the nearest restaurant, we were not given accurate information which was disappointing.
A very good hotel and value for money! The location also good cos it's in a hill, has good view of the valley. But, it's really a small town. We arrived at 9, every places are closed except one pub.
Friendly atmosphere in beautiful suroundings with a small waterfall outside the windows. Excellent food. Big room with comfortable beds. --
Room was big and spacious. Good location to river and close to Metzingen for shopping. Restaurant was good with excellent service.
Quietness No lift with room at the 3th floor
The staff was nice and very helpfull. I spent more almost 15 minutes when I arrived at the reception. None was there.
Freindly and helpful staff Basic although comfortable rooms
Restaurant and pub are good! The fact they do not take credit cards for payment of the room.
Good location, good breakfast with good service The rooms and the hotel was freezing cold, very worn down and in need of some renovation.
calm environment and got a free room upgrade. the room was very spacious. spiders in the room
good parking facilities, silence smell in the common premises
It is a charming place with a very comfortable and home-like feeling. The staff was wonderful and the place was very clean and quiet.
There are far from cleanliness... It was terrible.!
I like the brekfast, how the room was cleaned, I liked the staff on the reception. I did not like when
spacious room, friendly staff the heating at the main room wasn't working, hotel's restaurant wasn't working either.
The staff were very attentive aand the restaurant was excellent
Cleanleness, great breakfast, nice beds
nothing location is not good and service are not good
value for money, no fuss good breakfast!
We were impressed with the friendliness and clear competence of the staff not applicable
the enviroment, excellent place, good foods
Very near to the main road. Clean rooms and a very good breakfast.
The staff was very pleasant and helpful, the dinner food was good, the breakfast choices were fresh, plentiful, and healthy, and the facilities for accommodating our two families were excellent. The hotel is very family friendly with much care and thought given to keeping children happy and allowing parents and grandparents to have a great time too. It was very easy to find this hotel. It commands an interesting and nice view.
The view from our balcony was beautiful. The staff was very polite and helpful. Free continental breakfast - good choices. It was very hot as we were in a top floor room, there was no air conditioning or fans. Also no small fridge to put drinks into to cool.
Spacious family room. View from restaurant terrasse was very nice, food was good. Good hotel for staying overninght when on route to final holiday destination. Very warm in the rooom, no airconditioning, windows were not sufficient to ventilate the room properly
children-friendly Our "family room" is very small and basic, cannot compare with the family room (with more space and better beds) next door, while both rooms have the exactly same rate??
friendly reception and service
I got what I expected
The breakfast and evening meal were good. The hotel was extremely busy on the night we stayed and we were given a room in an annex. This was down a relatively steep slope and the lights were not working. As it was snowing at the time getting between the annex and the main hotel was 'challenging'. The shower had a sloping roof as it was in the eaves of the building and my husband could not stand upright in the space provided. The main building may be fine but we thought the annex was not ideal in winter.
The food cooked by the restaurant's hotel is excelent. The room is clean. Internet has worked excelent. The location was a little bit far from our visit point.
I am completely satisfied with everything. It was superb.
A very well-run comfortable family hotel with friendly staff. The bedroom was a good size, and we were also given a sitting room with a small balcony. The restaurant was excellent and we were able to eat outside in a delightful square.
for one stay on our way home we found a goodlooking room - good bathroom with enough hot water - good beds (we both slept very well)and in the morning an extensive breakfast in a cosy atmosphere the only thing I have to remark that I should have liked to find a doublebed instead of two single beds - but as we were very tired of our long travel that in this case it was not too important
Interesting, spotlessly clean, friendly staff.
Nice hotel staff, nice price and very good location. Nice and clean rooms. Very satisfied!
Reasonable access from the autoroute and excellent restaurant. Willing to serve breakfast at 8am on Sunday. None
our family had a great time.The staff were very helpful and the rooms were large and comfy. The walks in the nearby mountains were a nice change from the cities we had visited. For a true German cultural experience this is the place to go.
Superb bedroom with balcony overlooking lovely countryside Very good meals at reasonable price None
Staff were very nice to us and very helpful. They knew what we would like and made suggestions to make our life more pleasant and comfortable. The food was super -0 they n=amke their own bread, meat, sausahe cuts. It was only a stop-over, but we are glad we found it, and we want to spend a holiday there.The best find of the year for us.
It is just a small detour away from the motorway, ideal to break a longer car trip. There are lovely woods to walk in. The rooms are very book and nicely furnished, good size modern bathrooms. Food is excellent, both breakfast and lunch/dinner. Hot cuisine throughout the day. They also sell some home-made German and organic goodies. I stopped there again on the way back just for a late lunch break and liked it as much. Bound to go back there regularly. It is close to the motorway, so some noise. If you like sleeping with the window open, ask for a back room. But with windows closed you don't hear anything. Hotel very popular for weddings, unfortunately this happened to include a disco till 2.30 in the morning which was less pleasant although still bearable compared to other hotels.
Staff were helpful even though we had no German. Room was spacious, airy, quiet, clean and comfortable. Food came in generous portions. view was spectacular. We were sorry we were there for only one day.
We liked very much the spaces room, the dinner and the breakfast bufet.Also parking is exellent No hair dryer available
Clean, quiet, location. No free Wi-Fi (comes at a considerable cost through SwissCom), which is a standard all over Europe nowadays.
Excellent room, nice furbishing, good restaurant, nice location. On a warm day, the room is simply too hot, as not equipped with airconditioning. The hotel is located close to a busy road. To dampen the noise, windows and screens have to be closed.
welcoming reception can't say anything is wrong
Nice hotel, good restaurant and beautiful bar... It is imposibile to smoke a cigar...The place where can smoke is location bad, and was very could inside..
location and restaurant the room presented on the booking.com site when I have made the reservation was not what I received when I got there, there is a difference between what we saw on the site and what room we got. It was pretty small, considering the price asked for it. Fortunately we stayed only 2 nights. But anyway, the services are very good.
I like the glass of sparkling wine upon our arrival (as welcome). There were apples available instead of sweets! Grate idea! Everything was impeccable
Hotel staff and food Single room was too small, windows to noisy road
The food is fantastic and the location for shopping and sightseeing is great
It was just ok.
Hotel staff was very polite. Breakfast was excellent.
Nice atmosphere, excellent restaurant
spacious room, good breakfast anxious garage, better to park outside
Great breakfast It look like 3 star hotel,not for yang people.
Very nice huge room and hotel. Very good restaurant.
Everything OK. We'll be back !
environment waiting time terrace
Very nice hotel with adjacent hot baths and spa. Ample free parking and an excellent restaurant. The staff was accommodating and all at reception spoke English. Just a short drive from the very beautiful Bad Urach old town.
Calm and nice place to relax.
Breakfast, definitely outstanding Unfortunately I was disappointed by the room. Too small, the bed was against the wall and the TV set too small. I felt not confortable and I could not sleep
Very good location with parking in the center of the city.The room was nice and people at reception and breakfast were very kind (english and french speaking).
no tea/coffee making facility in room
Indoor pool for the kids when I had to do some work.
Big rooms, good wellness facilities The hotel is dated. Most things are old, some things are broken. Our sink was broken so we had to move to another room.
The sauna was nice and the pool, good for relaxing after a long day Would be nice if the sauna was open longer.
The Hotel breakfast was good and the room spacious. The TV was old and channels were mostly non-english.
The reception staff were very helpful, assisting us when needing local information, photocopying etc.The breakfast was outstanding and restaurant staff also very pleasant. For a family hotel, which was what we needed, it was expensive, but we knew the price so can't complain and the location was good.Tea or coffeee facilities during the day would have been good, especially at that price, even Premier Inns have a kettle etc, so it was more like a B&B in that respect.!
small but nice indoor swimming pool
It is very convenient to find from the motorway. It has expanded and is no longer so small and friendly.
It is very good for one day stay.
The friendly staff, the clean and pleasant room
The rooms are quiet and comfortable. Excellent restuarant on-site along with a full-service bar.
Very stylish yet comfortable. Nice and quiet too. Easy access to the motorway.
Good and clean rooms and friendly staff No
Convenient location close to the motorway. Comfortable room. Good breakfast Quite a lot of road noise from village traffic.
A recently updated hotel, close to the motorway and easy to find. Good food, large room and clean bathroom
Friendly staff, very clean hotel
Great staff in a very ambitious and dedicated hotel. Easy access from the motorway. Will be a stylish and classy family hotel once the renovation is finished. The restaurant was not open the night we stayed. The room was really hot, which made sleeping difficult. A large-scale renovation and expansion is going on in the hotel. No elevator.
location was right in the centre of town. bathroom was poor size, with light and extractor fan not working. The room had a musty smell
Tasty meal in restaurant. Nice suite in trditional german style for reasonable price.
Bar was not open Sunday evening
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Urach is such a beautiful little town and everything was in easy walking distance. The hotel restaurant featured some really good Schwabian dishes, which we enjoyed.
Neat, comfortable, good food, easy access, an ideal place to spend the night if traveling either way down the A8 and need to stop in the Stuttgart area
Silence, beautiful village.
If you are anywhere near this area then stay here. Everything is simply great. The view from the window, the food, the service, you name it. And you get a beautiful German village for free !! Absolutely nothing
convenient to A8 autobahn. Clean, friendly in spite of only speaking little English. Food very good.
Very friendly, rooms and food ok, very good value for money Do not expect a hotel with services, this is rather b&b style
Comfortable reasonably priced hotel. Staff were pleasant but do not speak any english. Hotel was unaware of the booking made by activehotels so maybe there is a problem in their recording system. They did however accommodate us, but could not provide a meal that night as it was the hotel rest day (Monday). They were able to recommend a nearby hotel where we could get a meal
