We really enjoyed our stay. The owner was exceptionally nice. We enjoyed the company on Saturday night in Wolfgang's. We like to walk to the restaurants in the area but be away from the crowd.

really like the piano bar and historic hotel

I love that they have a little bar in the basement now! I won't stay anywhere else when visiting New Braunfels. Walking distance to everything I never drive once I've arrived. You can Uber/Lyft to Greune Hall. Quiet even when sold out. Nice large patio area with an opportunity to meet and chat with other guests. Rooms vary in size and amenities so make sure you ask/check before booking. The owner/staff are very accommodating.

This was like staying at great-grandma's house, with all the character and charm. The host could not have been more accommodating, the breakfasts were delicious and served with a smile, and the downstairs bar was warm and inviting. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Awesome Stay! Our stay was relaxing and comfortable. The Inn was beautiful and had such a historic feel to it both inside and out. From the porch swings out front to the beautiful stairway and 12 foot ceilings it definitely had the flare of a time long gone by. This was our first stay at a B&B so the whole experience was great and so different from a stay at normal hotel. The Innkeeper Al was friendly and helpful if needed. It was quiet, relaxing and a trip back in time to historic New Braunfels ! We will be coming back again.

This is a wonderful place to stay for a getaway. The plase is gorgeous! History at every corner. The location is great too! Walking distance from the river or down town. Parking is easy. Breakfast was great too. There is a jazz club in the basement with live music. We like country but still the band who played was very enjoyable. Don't plan on going to bed early. It's a great place for an anniversary or just a weekend getaway. The innkeepers were very friendly.

Everything was better than I had expected. Had a great stay would stay again.
4.4 on August 17, 2016
Prince Solms Inn is run by one of the most pleasant and accommodating people I have encountered. Al was polite, friendly and gave a tour of the Inn upon our arrival even though we were late. There is a quaint and enjoyable jazz bar in the basement, a patio to enjoy and the room we stayed in was kid friendly. The only downside to our stay was being in a room adjacent to the patio where smokers from the jazz bar came to. Other than that, I would definitely come back to stay.
4.2 on August 16, 2016
We were welcomed very warm in the beautiful historic main building. We 've got the Texas Cottage which is very spacious and fully equipped. The big king size bed was very comfortable. The hotel is in a great location. Just minutes from Downtown New Braunfels, restaurants, tube rental stations and a just 10-minutes drive to the beautiful historic city Gruene. The breakfast was delicious (eggs, jam, bun, bacon, coffee, juice). The jazz bar in the basement of the hotel opened in the evening. But not to hear in the Cottages. We had a great time there.
5 on August 12, 2016
Al, the innkeeper, runs a fantastic B&B a block from the Comal River, Schlitterbahn, and downtown NB. Quaint and historical (and maybe haunted!), this is a great place to stay with a great breakfast every morning.
4.6 on August 10, 2016
We loved it and will stay there again!
4.2 on August 01, 2016
This is a great little hotel in a great location. Nothing we wanted (Schlitterbahn, Gruene, Downtown New Braunfels, local restaurants, even a pharmacy) was ever more than about 10 minutes away, and most of it was much closer than that. The hotel has a charming antique feel to it, but our room was quite large with both bedroom and parlor area (Sophie's Suite). There is a quaint courtyard with lots of outdoor space for sitting and enjoying yourself. Breakfast was delicious every morning. There is a jazz bar in the basement of the hotel, but this was never an issue for us as far as noise. My two biggest complaints would be the location of the room. Sophie's suite is literally right by the front door, stairs, and office; meaning there was little to no privacy. We could hear everything that was being said in the hall/front office, and I am sure they could hear us as well. The good news is there are other rooms with more privacy if this is what you want. Also, the curtains in our bedroom area could stand to be washed as they were quite covered in dust. Other than that, the hotel and grounds were vey well kept and we could not have been happier with our decision.

Al and the entire staff at the Prince Solms are always wonderful!!!

Wonderful original hotel for a couple or a group. Will be back.

The staff was so accommodating and very friendly. The breakfast was good. The location of the B&B was perfect for a floating experience with friends, as well as proximity to Gruene Hall and downtown shops.

I would have rated some of these options such as service as outstanding but it would not let me click it. We had a few normal issues such as a clogged toilet during our stay and they were promptly fixed. Everyone there was courteous, friendly and I would stay there again any time. This is our second stay at this inn and we love the courtyard area the most!

Great place and so convenient to everything
3.4 on May 30, 2016
We love to stay in places that are out of the ordinary and have stayed in many different historic hotels. The Prince Solms Inn was very unique, beautiful and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and the hospitality of the innkeepers.
4.8 on May 16, 2016
We had a 50th birthday party on the patio in front of our haus, and the innkeeper helped with lovely flowers, wine and cheese. It was a great mix of history, lore, and modern comforts. It couldn't have been better.

Spent the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you for a romantic beautiful weekend.
5 on April 15, 2016
We had a wonderful stay here. We arrived before we cold check in and the gentleman at the desk let us leave our luggage in the room while it was getting cleaned up for us. He was very helpful telling us of things to do in the town and all the activities that were happening that weekend, We love our room! It was very clean and cozy. the only problem was that i could not talk my pregnant wife into climbing up to sleep in the loft:( .The breakfast was excellent the next morning. Thanks to the Prince Solms Inn for the weekend.
4.8 on March 18, 2016
Cute place. Very friendly and location can't be beat. Walking distance to shops, pubs, and great restaurants.
5 on March 11, 2016
We truly enjoy the history of the property, with the main house (that includes a wonderful basement bar), cottages and Klein Haus all unique. Al and Nancy always make you feel welcomed and pampered!
3.6 on February 16, 2016
Nostalgic location with impeccable attention to comfort. Entertained by a talented 3-piece Jazz band in the downstairs lounge that evening. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Well worth the trip to New Braunfels to visit this timeless venue.
5 on February 10, 2016
This was our third time to stay at the Prince Solms Inn, and as usual, it didnt disappoint! We were upgraded to a larger room at no extra charge. The breakfast was amazing, and the staff was very friendly. Even calling five minutes after we left to remind me I forgot some items in my room! Wolfgang had terrific jazz music which ended our night perfectly! Already counting the days til our next trip!

We stayed New Years Eve...made reservations fairly late so the main hotel was full and we got the bunkhouse out back. It was great...comfortable and private.

Ive stayed here twice since September, looking forward to visiting again VERY soon, I have not one complaint,A+
5 on December 30, 2015
I am in love w thus place... the house and grounds are beautiful, I was there in sept and was just there this past weekend... Al the innkeeper is so nice and accommodating, he even upgraded myself and brother whom was in town for the holidays from new york to the carriage haus! I cant wait to go back,which I'm sure will be VERY soon :) Definitely a must stay place !
5 on December 03, 2015
I had an absolutely wonderful time here - the rooms and house are all beautiful, and the addition of the bar in the basement is fantastic. A wonderful jazz band were playing whilst I was there, and it made the evening.
4.4 on November 19, 2015
The Prince Solms Inn is very conveniently located in downtown New Braunfels and is with walking distance of many things. The staff was all super nice and caring. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to a getaway for a weekend.
4.6 on November 12, 2015
What an interesting place! Love the bar in the basement... PIANO GUY ON SATURDAY WAS AWESOME! You should get that piano player or another one for Thursday - Saturday... Fantastic breakfast.... WIFI was crack a lackin! Loved it! Then a short walk to WURSTFEST made it even more crack a snacken!
5 on November 05, 2015
The attention to historical details, rustic and Victorian, are wonderful but what really sets the Prince Solms Inn is the service. Thank you, Al, for making our stay remarkable! This is definitely our new get away place for special occasions.
4.6 on October 22, 2015
We enjoyed our time at the Prince Solms Inn. Great host, clean and charming rooms, and a great breakfast. Couldn't have asked for more!
3.8 on October 19, 2015
This is a very cute Bed & Breakfast to stay at. Everyone was friendly and we loved our stay in the Sophie Suite. One thing to keep in mind for that room is that it is just above the piano bar. If you don't enjoy piano music playing till midnight on the weekends, you may want to consider a different room. We actually enjoyed it. Speaking of the piano bar below the hotel, it is great! It feels like you are in a 20's era speakeasy. The hotel was great and the location was awesome too.
4.2 on October 01, 2015
Al is a great host! Beautiful place. relaxing and comfortable. Very convenient. We'll be back.
3.4 on August 24, 2015
We spent two nights in the Huntington room. This was our first out-of-town weekend together. The inn has a nice atmosphere. It was very well kept and we were happy with the room. Comfy bed. Bathroom a little small. Location was great. I would stay there again...
3.6 on August 09, 2015
We love this place. Been there about 5 times. Breakfast has always been a disappointment. This last stay couldn't even eat it. We have had the same menu served every time. Al is always attentive and welcoming. Great location! Great atmosphere.
3.8 on May 16, 2015
We enjoyed our night at the Prince Solms Inn while in town for a weekend. We were lucky enough to be able to book the last room available for a couple. (Other, much larger accommodations were available.) Our room was small but nicely appointed and clean. The water closet, as advertised, was quite small, so if you are a large person you may not be able to shut the door for privacy. This was not really a concern for us, however. We enjoyed taking our instruments to the courtyard for an impromptu jam session. Even though we are not loud players, the area was removed enough so as not to disturb other patrons. If you enjoy, as we do, being able to absorb some of the local color and enjoying the history of the surrounding area, the Prince Solms Inn is the place to stay in New Braunfels. We did NOT dine at the PSI, but were unable to leave the dining rating blank.
4.2 on April 28, 2015
Unique property with high ceilings in large rooms in the main inn. Several out buildings offer additional accommodations. Definitely old Texas decor and ambiance - you can imagine a stagecoach stopping in front. Very friendly, helpful innkeeper, the location is right downtown. Walk to shops and restaurants, visit the oldest bakery in Texas and stop at the unique farmers' market on Saturdays. The full hot breakfast served in a large, bright dining room was delicious. Why stay in a chain motel when you can relive history at the Prince Solms Inn.
3.2 on April 02, 2015
I had a great stay here. Very lovely building and rooms. Spent some time on the balcony as well as the patio and the little bar downstairs(next door) and all were great!

Very good hotel for a weekend..
5 on January 16, 2015
We stayed for New Year's Eve, and had a great experience. The staff were attentive and friendly from registration to check out. The room was comfortable and clean. We slept through breakfast, so we didn't eat, but it was quiet enough to be able to do so. A very nice bed and breakfast.
5 on January 14, 2015
My husband and I stayed in the Penelope room and loved it there. The king size bed was very comfortable compared to high-end hotels. I have back problems, but the king bed in the Penelope room was very comfortable. The service at check-in was friendly and made you feel at home like visiting family. The staff was always cheery and accommodating. The cleanliness was impeccable compared to a high-end hotel. I had no complaints. The dining was also worth your money. It was a home cooked meal that was light yet hearty. I would definitely go back to stay, and try the Summerhouse this time. Best stay ever! ~Elizabeth
4.2 on December 25, 2014
This is a really nice bed and breakfast with beautiful decor, comfortable accomadations in a convenient location. Many restaurants and shops are within a short walk. Service was excellent The inn is quaint and feels like home. There are common sitting areas, a basement bar and a courtyard with chairs and table, Breakfast was very good and was served punctually in a beautiful dining room.

My wife and I are not "B&B People"...or so we thought. We have had one prior B&B experience before Prince Solms Inn, and it was not our favorite - we usually prefer nice hotels and the services and consistency they typically offer. However...for Christmas, we received a $100 gift card to bedandbreakfast.com, and opted to use it for our one night stay in New Braunfels so that it wouldn't go to waste. We were blown away by the friendliness of the staff, wonderful decor, comfortable rooms, and an overall good experience. Upon checking in, the man who was helping us said, "Oh, you selected a room that I think is too small...I'm giving you a free upgrade." What a way to start your stay! I must say, Prince Solms has potentially converted us to B&B people!

The sophie suite was amazing and the staff was great. The location is fantastic and we will definitely stay next year.
4.2 on May 20, 2014
Our room was so nice and the owner, Al, was the most gracious host my husband and I have ever encountered. He bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable and the service and rooms are excellent. Very clean and every room is so different from the other, but they are all lovely. Thank you again for making our stay a very nice memory.

Third stay at this B&B and can't wait to go back!

I stayed at the Prince Solms Inn for a full week while traveling around the Hill Country for business, and I found it to be the perfect home base. And I mean that – it really felt like home. Cozy accommodations, exceptional customer service, and a great breakfast! One day, I even missed breakfast, and was delighted to find fresh fruit, yogurt, and orange juice in my room when I arrived back at the inn. Also, the location in downtown New Braunfels could not be better – you are right on the main strip and seconds from great restaurants and other historic attractions, like the newly-rededicated county courthouse. I hope I find myself back in town – and back at Prince Solms – some day.
4.6 on January 16, 2013
The Prince Solms Inn is a unique and historical inn with genuine freindly service. My wife and I frequent the inn any time we're in NB for any of the local events or concerts. The innkeeper is one of the nicest and most accommodating owners I've ever stayed with. The rooms are period, the floors sqeak, and the bathrooms are unrenovated (small). We love the place because its original. The breakfast is great although we seldom make it downstairs choosing to sleep in. The Piano Bar downstairs is a great place to spend the evening. Your walking distance from downtown or $20 will get you round trip to Gruene.
5 on January 04, 2013
We stayed there New Years Eve, piano bar in the basement of the Inn, very convient and close to the old town square, about a 2 block walk. Would recommend to anyone to stay here. We will be back!!
5 on December 31, 2012
We stayed in Sophie's Suite. I wanted to hear the piano music. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling good & we stayed in the room only to hear obnoxious noise. The piano guy bailed out. Then at 2am I heard a very loud "thump thump thump" noise. Wishing it was the spirit lady that is known to roam the inn but, it was the guys cleaning up the bar & threw the trash can down the stairs rather than walking it down. OTHER than that we had a WONDERFUL stay!! Very good breakfast!!! Slept very well in the king bed. The room is decorated in Victorian style with New Braunfels history. There is a small frig, microwave & large flat screen tv. We stayed after Christmas but, more than likely I would pick a room upstairs away from the piano bar/patio if you stay during the summer or Wuerstfest.

We enjoyed our weekend at this charming inn.
5 on December 05, 2012
This is a great place to stay for a relaxing weekend. We enjoyed the personal attention by the staff and the owner. The town was decorated for the holidays and we especially enjoyed the proximity to the square so we could just walk down after dark and take pictures of the lights. Breakfast was excellent - eggs and, of course, fresh kolaches. We will definitely stay there again.
3.8 on November 24, 2012
Didnt really get a chance to enjoy the food, too much fun the night before at wurstfest. Very happy about the room/cottage we were in. This place will be recommended for friends and family.
3.8 on October 17, 2012
I really wish we had known that there was gonna be a party in the rot yard that night. We were in a room on the courtyard and it was so loud that we didn't get to sleep until about midnight. We came to rest not party. The room was very nice and clean and the people at the desk were very nice.
4.4 on October 11, 2012
We stayed here for a little get away. Our room was not in the actual Inn and I was a bit upset about this however, we were only there for one night. I will stay again, but make sure we are in the Inn. The breakfast was awesome. The piano bar downstairs was fun. I am sure there are busier times and it could get rowdy. Our time was great.
3.4 on September 19, 2012
Very friendly staff which compensated a bit for a slightly tired look.

Great antique atmosphere and nice rooms. Staff is friendly. The breakfast is good and the location can't be beat. Less than 10 minutes to Greune with amazing restaurants.

Beautiful room! Beautifully kept! Friendly staff! Great breakfast!
4.2 on August 20, 2012
I stayed in the Library Room. While the room was comfortable to stay in, the ceiling fan only had one speed...too fast, and I was not able to use the fan because of that. I was promised a oscillating pedestal fan would be placed in the room, but it wasn't.
4.2 on August 20, 2012
This is the second year in a row that we have stayed at the Prince Solms Inn during our trip to Schlitterbahn. Our two children love staying in the loft bed. My husband and I enjoy sitting in the courtyard right outside the door once the kids are asleep. After a full day of Schlitterbahn we're too tired to check out the Piano bar, but it looks like fun... maybe next year

You realize that you are in a unique B&B when you enter. You step back in time, but still have modern conveniences. A delightful break from the ordinary, sterile hotel room at a very competitive price. Gerry Aitken
3.4 on August 13, 2012
It was a cozy place to stay overall, but in my opinion rooms could use dusting and spots on carpet could be removed to look more appealing.
5 on August 10, 2012
Beautiful rooms and great customer service. The elegance and history of the place was wonderful as well. When we checked in, we received an unexpected discount on the room which started the stay in a truly bright way, and the breakfast the next morning ended it divinely. The inn keeper could not of been nicer, and he was very pleasant to talk to as he filled you in on all the good things going on in town and any questions about the hotel and its past.
5 on August 08, 2012
I have to say that this is a wonderful place to stay. Very kid friendly as I have 4. Al the innkeeper was so hospitable and treated our family with the utmost respect and friendliness. I told him on our departure that he has a customer for life and he does. We are actually planning another trip to New Braunfels and we plan to stay at Prince Solms Inn once again.
4.4 on July 25, 2012
My two daughters and I had the pleasure of spending an evening at the Prince Solms Inn this summer. The inn was simply gorgeous. It retains all of it's old world charm yet still provides some nice modern amenities. The breakfast room was also beautiful and the food outstanding. I'd like to thank Al, the Innkeeper. He was extremely genial and helpful. We will definitely be back!
5 on July 23, 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed the Prince Solms Inn Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in the Hays Room which was perfect for my daughter's Sweet 16 get away. The four girls stayed in the loft area and I stayed downstairs. It was perfect! The place was clean, the staff was friendly and the breakfasts were fantastic! It was close to Schlitterbaun and shopping in San Marcos. We will definitely stay there again and refer this place to others.
5 on July 20, 2012
My wife and I recently stayed at the Prince Solms Inn on a weekend getaway for our anniversary. We stayed in the Sophie Suite. The owner, Al, was great, the food, was great, the location was 2 minutes from Schlitterbahn, and the rooms were beautiful. We highly recommend! The piano bar, downstairs would be very loud for anyone who is a light sleeper. I would not suggest the Sophie Suite for any light sleepers who need to go to bed early. As my wife and I were up late every night or in the piano bar ourselves, it was an extremely pleasant stay. We will be going back as soon as possible.
4.4 on July 17, 2012
The location was great as it was very close to Gruene and the water attractions. The inn keeper, Al, was wonderful giving us suggested places to visit and directions. The breakfast each morning was very delicious.

Beautiful B&B, friendly staff, breakfast was such a treat, great location. Can't wait to go back!
3.2 on July 07, 2012
The Prince Solms Inn was a great place to stay. We stayed in the Klein Haus as there were myself, my husband and 14 year old son. It was very quaint and I really liked the decor and the creeky wooden floors. Breakfast was tasty. A good location for accessing the Comal River and within walking distance of great places to dine.
4.6 on June 27, 2012
This is a real jewel! We booked at the last minute for a weekend away. The inn was so nice that we didn't want the weekend to end. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Will be coming back very soon.
5 on June 13, 2012
This was a very quaint place to stay. Two adults and one small child and we had a wonderfully relaxing time. The breakfast each morning was fantastic with a very relaxed and comfy atmosphere. We stayed in the Hayes Room with the loft for children and were pleasantly surprised at how comfy the beds were and how quiet the nights were. The last night of our stay the Piano Bar was open and was a bit loud, but we were told of this and the supply of foam ear plugs did the trick on blocking out the noise! Didn't bother our little one a bit. The owner was very nice and completely accomodating. We never needed anything extra but he made sure to let us know that he would do whatever was needed to make us as comfortable as possible. He was able to give us a couple of good options for dinner and was very knowledgeable about the rides at Schlitterbahn. It was a wonderful stay and we give it the highest review!
2.8 on June 13, 2012
The Chisom(sp) room was pretty cool for my little girls in the fact that it had a lofted bed room for them, but the light up there did not work and was not fixed during our stay. There was another light that was not fixed either. Looks better on the internet than in person. But the breakfasts were very good.
2.6 on June 09, 2012
Building is interesting, well maintained, nicely located, and the innkeeper is very friendly. Breakfast was well presented, but the lack of choice of hot breakfast was a disappointment (we didn't care for one breakfast: "Sunrise Eggs" aren't what we call "Country Breakfast" - as advertised.
3.2 on June 09, 2012
Nice place, friendly service. My room was adjacent the main street. I got in very late and was awakened very early by street noise, sparrows and the incessant wailing of the horn of a locomotive. Five hours of sleep was enough, I guess, and I was up and showered by 8am.
5 on June 04, 2012
This is the best bed and breakfast i have ever stayed in, the location is awesome and the staff are outstanding.. The innkeeper is always so inviting and accomidating... Love it and am always trying to find a way to get back there as soon as I can..
5 on June 03, 2012
After recently completing a stay at the Prince Solms Inn, I was contacted by their staff because I had left a purse there. This was a very expensive Nancy Gonzales purse. I was able to pick up the purse, as I was again in the area. Great, honest staff.
4.0 on May 31, 2012
This is a very cute bed and breakfast located right down the street (a few minutes walk) from Prince Solms Park with access to the Comal River. There is a piano bar located in the basement of the building so if you don't want to hear music throughout the night, I would recommend staying on the second floor. There are a few restaurants located at the city center roundabout just a few minutes walk down the road. I found the courtyard and the upstairs balcony to be lovely places to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning.
3.6 on May 30, 2012
A lot i of noise, toilette made noise (shushing sound on and off), left shower nozzle coming out of wall. But nice breakfast, coffee at 7:30 and a gracious and super helpful host (Al) .

My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary at this lovely B&B. Al gave us a great recommendation for dinner and the "Sunrise eggs" at breakfast were wonderful. Thank you for a special stay!

I'm very pleased & satisfied with our stay at the Prince Solms Inn. this trip was our second stay & the 2nd was just as great as the frist one. the bathrooms are very clean. they have excellent customer service. the innkeeper is very pleasant no complants about him or the staff. both times that we had breakfast there were great. at first i seemed scared to eat what i was served but knowing that my stay included breakfast & that it was the whole purpose of the stay i reluctantly gave it a try, well, to my surprise it was delecious and wanted seconds. so, dont be afraid to try the breakfast because it's not as bad as it looks. i'm sure looking forward to my next stay at the inn.
3.8 on May 04, 2012
Had a minor leak in bathroom sink and was discounted for it, very generous. Great location. Can't wait to stay again!
5 on May 01, 2012
What a great way to get out of busy San Antonio, Prince Solms was absolutely amazing. Relaxing, gorgeous, amazing porch, really wonderful breakfast, but more important than all that was the owner. He truly made us feel at home and shared so much info. on things we could do while we are there. Next to the outlets,Greene, ect...was a truly plessure to stay there. Will definetly be back! Loved it
3.6 on April 25, 2012
We enjoyed our overnight stay. We had a very short time to visit the B&B (piano bar, breskfast the next morning) and surrounding area due to our tight schedule. From what we saw we would like to return for a longer stay. I was forced to rate the dining but as mentioned we did not have time to dine at the B&B so it is truely a N/A rating for dining.

Al contacted us in the afternoon of the day we were to arrive and we were in the middle of Texas in a town called Albert. He let us know that he would be closing the B&B and needed to know when we would be arriving. I knew we had a bit of a drive ahead of us before we would arrive in New Braunfels so I guessed that we would be in about 8:30 p.m. He said that would be great and I indicated I would call when we got to the area and he would meet us there to get us settled in. Al was there when we arrived and welcomed us by giving us all of the pertinent information we needed to get us through our evening there. We did head out and look around town and spent a bit of time in Gruene. We decided to head back to the B&B and spent the remainder of the evening in the piano bar which was very quiet for the most part aside from the dozen or so people who were also there enjoying the evening. Very peaceful atmosphere and great end to the evening. We would definitely stay there again.
3.8 on March 21, 2012
This was my 4th stay here. I love the atmosphere, the breakfast, the staff and the piano bar downstairs. However, the noise level this time bothered me. There was a party who sat on the patio outside my window talking and laughing loudly until 2 in the morning. Management did supply ear plugs but my husband used our 1 pair. Maybe leave 2 pairs ear plugs or move the patio tables to the back, away from the windows where people are trying to sleep. Glad they were having a good time, though.

I stayed in the Library Room on Friday night because I had a 10:00 am wedding to attend on Saturday. My only dissapointment with the room is that the bathroom is very small. No counter space whatsoever for makeup, etc. It is probably intended for a man. Also no coffee pot in the room, so you have to wait until the dining area opens at 7:30 for coffee. If you need your cafienne fix ealier, you should probably bring your own coffee maker. I went down to the parlor for a diet coke. The staff served us breakfast early, so we could get to the wedding in time (we needed to be there for 9:00 photos). Absolutely love the place, but I will stay in a different room next time. The piano bar is a definite plus!

Lovely, OLD Inn; quaint bedrooms, extremely friendly and pleasant inn keeper; Made all the more wonderful because my Mom and stepdad, younger sister and her family, and my older sister and her daughter (who got married on Saturday) were all staying there as well; I felt like I was at Mom's 1932 home! Yes, the inn and furnishings are OLD, but that adds to the pleasant charm. My older sister complained that her bathroom was too small (Library Room), but she could have switched rooms. Mine was perfect for a nice old inn. My only "complaint" was that coffee wasn't served until 7:30 and breakfast not until 9:00, although there were muffins, coffee, cocoa, and cereal (sans milk) at 7:30 and since we were all down there early, they did put out milk and yogurt around 8:00 or 8:30. I would definitely stay there again!

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Prince Solms Inn for a (delayed) Valentine's Day get away just last weekend. We live in Austin, so the Prince Solms is just an hour away - far enough to feel like we were getting away, but close enough to not feel like too much of a road chore. Al Buttross, the innkeeper, was extremely pleasant and attentive; the suite we originally reserved was still experiencing some renovations so upon our arrival we were upgraded to the cottage on the property. It was stunning!!! Al even threw in a bottle of wine for us to enjoy during out stay. We only stayed one night, and I didn't want to leave. I can't wait to come back. I can't recommend this place enough.
5 on February 28, 2012
We were late evening arrivals; two of us arrived about 10:30 and the other two just before 3:00 a.m. The Innkeeper was very accomodating with his help in our room choice and the hospitality at the inn (including the breakfast) was some of the best we have experienced anywhere. Thank you, Prince Solms staff!

We stayed at Prince Solms the weekend before Valentine's Day. Thought I was lucky to get a room and just for the record, the pictures don't do it justice!! The hotel itself is so quaint and inviting and once inside you just want to see every inch of the place. We had a room upstairs but rec'd a free upgrade into Sophie's Choice room after I told the Inn Keeper how interested we were in the haunted room. The room was also above the amazing Piano Bar with wonderful music. The ambiance of the entire Inn was so much fun and very relaxing. The outside was very nice as well with a fire and lite up with lights. The Inn Keeper was so nice and willing to help us. I felt very well treated and feel like I have found the jewel of New Braunfels!! If you are looking for a romantic getaway or mini vacation I absolutely hands down recommend the Prince Solms Inn!!

Thoroughly enjoyed my short stay in New Braunfels at the Prince Solms Inn. The room was beautiful and spacious and the bed was sooooooo comfortable I didn't want to get out of it the next day. The Inn itself is very quaint and within walking distance to the shops, restaurants, and live music. I will without a doubt stay here again.

We stayed for just one night but we had such a wonderful stay that we will definately plan for a longer one next time. Rooms were cozy and beds were clean. The downstairs piano bar was so much fun! Breakfast was delicious and the service was outstanding. A definate do over!

The B&B's web site was very informative. It gave me a good idea of what to expect at the hotel as well as gave me information about local dining and attractions. The B&B staff was very friendly and helpful at check-in and at breakfast. The Inn location was very close to local dining and entertainment. I enjoyed learning about the history of the Inn prior to my arrival. I also enjoyed dining at the Inn and nearby restaurants during my stay.
5 on December 03, 2011
We stayed in the Klein Haus. It was quiet, peaceful, and super clean. Al the Innkeeper was charming, hospitable and full of great suggestions for places to visit. His staff as friendly and professional. The food was outstanding, always piping hot and fresh. We look forward to returning!
5 on November 28, 2011
My stay at Prince Solms Inn B&B was great! Al, the inn-keeper, was very friendly. I stayed in "Sophi's Room", which I highly recommend. I was a little worried though when booking the room since the website states that noise from the downstairs piano bar that's in the basement does travel up to the room. However, the noise was hardly noticeable. The location is great as it is in walking distance to the town's shops and a short ride to the nearby town of Gruene. I recommend waking up to take advantage of the complimentary breakfast and if you have diet restrictions/needs, they are happy to work with you if you provide advance notice. I would also recommend going to the piano bar in the basement, even though it is not owned by the B&B. The music is relaxing, the art work is interesting, the waitresses are nice and friendly, and of course, the drinks are very reasonably priced. They do have a small menu for food, but the selections are good. Overall, I would stay at the Inn again.

We stayed here as a quick getaway after our wedding and could not have been more pleased. We received a warm welcome and were treated with a personal interest and attention that seems like something from day gone by. We loved the historic cabin we stayed in, and look forward to returning to the inn in the future. We highly recommend it to anyone!

It was nice to stay in Price Solm's Inn. Even better if we didn't bring our kids. Although kids are welcome, my toddlers are not old enough to appreciate this historic building.

Perfect place to stay. One drawback-we could only stay one evening, but wished we would have stayed longer. We highly recommend this charming B&B. Terry & Skip

What a wonderful experience! My husband and I had originally requested a stay at one of the upper rooms but were offered a free upgrade to a suite (Sophie's Room) being that the inn was not fully booked during our stay. Our room was impeccably clean, our breakfast was delicious, the piano bar was nice for a nightcap, but what most impressed us was the hospitality of our innkeeper. We wanted to thank you again and we hope to visit our wonderful little inn sometime in the future.

We had a great time! Al is always so helpful! There were 10 of us staying at the Prince Solms for the Grape Stomp at Dry Comal Creek. We all had a wonderful time and the staff is just great! Nancy cooked the perfect breakfast and served it with a smile! Betty - Spring, Texas

Great place, rooms on the courtyard are spacious, clean and cool. The Piano Bar is a classic. Great service, great people.

We had originally booked one of the smaller, upstairs rooms. When we arrived, the inn-keeper discovered that the A/C was not working, so he upgraded us to Sophie's Suite--the best room--at no extra cost! Excellent service, and the feel of staying in a real (and luxurious) piece of history. Next time, we'll save up to make sure we get Sophie's Suite again. :)
5 on August 12, 2011
Prince Solms Inn is a great place to stay. Quite, clean, perfect breakfast, and Al the inns keeper is willing to do anything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. You are missing a very good Bed and Breakfast Inn if you don't stay there.

Great room, quaint courtyard, excellent service...we loved it!

I chose this inn as it was close to the Schlitterbahn park, and stayed in Sophie's suite. The room was beautiful and spacious, and we were able to hear music and chat from the piano bar at night. Some guests may dislike the noise, but the inn supplied ear plugs incase. Housekeeping was daily and efficient. The bathroom was quite small but cleanly, although the sink in the kitchenette was blocked with a bread crumb-like substance. The breakfast area had tea and coffee and a selection of cereals, and the main breakfast changed daily. The inn was worth the money and I would stay again if in the area.
4.4 on August 01, 2011
We stayed here because of how close it was to the Comal River. Everyone was nice. The Piano Bar in the basement was a great place to go at the end of every night. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to staying here again.

The 'hays' room is wonderful for families with kids. The lady who cleaned our room and made our breakfast went above and beyond the call of duty by getting me some koloches & yogurt for my sleeping boys. Thank you!

Historical inn still has original architectural with minimal updates, so is old and not best for the disabled. No elevator. King bed was comfortable and clean. Bathroom tiny but very clean. No hair dryer but was not an inconvenience for us as we were tubing the Comal River, only a block away. Dorm fridge in room as well as water and pretzels, but no coffee unit in room. Freshly prepared breakfast was different the two mornings we were there, included juice, fruits, dry cereals, coffee, muffins, and a wholesome breakfast plate cooked on site....not the usual microwaved freeway motel food. Served with real glassware, ceramic plates and heavy stainless utensils on tableclothed tables. Innkeeper and cook were very hospitable, being sure we were comfortable. Piano bar in basement (not part of inn) was a nice way to wind down the day. Since the inn is an 1800 structure, there is no insulation in the walls or doors so you can easily hear your "neighbor". However, we were not annoyed by street noise. We would stay again.

We had a nice two night stay at Prince Solms Inn. Friendly staff good food. Great comfy bed!!! It's an old building -- which is part of the charm and why we like to stay at B&Bs. Good breakfast and nice, helpful staff. Good location as well. Make sure you check out the panio bar down stairs. Unique and friendly.

Visited the Prince Solms Inn for the 4th of July weekend. It was a great value and a real joy. Thank you to the staff and we will be back soon!!!

I should say it was awful! Just so no one will go there and I will always be able to book a room. But the truth is we had a fantastic time. They are in a perfect location. The Staff and Breakfast was great. The Piano Bar is the place to be....

My husband and I come to the inn several times a year. The service is awesome and the historical B&B is beautiful. We will always be huge fans!

Prince Solms was a wonderful place to stay. It was within walking distance of downtown, Schlitterbahn and the Comal river. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was delicious. The rooms were clean. The only thing is the wall are very thin. You can hear everything in the rooms next to you. They did provide ear plugs which helped some. There is also a piano bar in the B&B which was awesome. We were able to listen to some local talent and relax with drink in hand.

typically low cost b and b. Ill definitely go again if i get the chance. keep up the good work!

My boyfriend and I stayed two nights in Sophie's Suite at the Prince Solms Inn over Memorial Day weekend while we were in twon for a wedding. The room had a nice size living room, piano included, that opened on to a large comfy bed and plenty of storage space for our things. The room had a small bathroom but the area just off the kitchen had an additional mirror, sink and a mini fridge and microwave to allow us both to get ready at the same time. The room was very clean and both days we received complimentary snacks, bottled water (as well as drinks provided in the lounge for all guests) and ear plugs in case the piano bar below the room became too much. The piano music and people below us singing along was fun and the bar only stays open until midnight so we were able to go to bed at a reasonable hour. The only downside of this room was the proxsimity to the front door as the walls are thin and you can hear people coming and going if y ou are in the room at all during the day. Also the fan in the living room was not working and the fan in the bedroom we deemed the "hurricane fan" because it had one setting.... FAST! lol The knob had 3 or 4 settings but it never seemed to change from the one speed. Breakfast was served each morning with coffee, tea and orange juice. The service was fast and the breakfast was delicious. If you chose not to eat the hot breakfast provided, cereal, muffins and oatmeal were available to you as well. Overall we had a lovely stay and would come back in the future!
4.4 on June 02, 2011
This was our second time at this B&B. Why stay at a chain hotel when you can stay at a beautifully decorated historic B&B. The service was fantastic and the breakfast was very delicious. The B&B is also within walking distance of Schlitterbahn, toobing, and downtown. We stayed in the Chisholm room. The King bed was very comfortable. Our son quickly fell in love with the loft that has a double bed and a huge play area. There were only a couple of faults. The shower head needs to be replaced and the traffic can be noisy in the mid-afternoon.
3.2 on June 01, 2011
This was a very nice place with lots of different rooms to choose from. We were upgraded to the carriage house since things were a little slow, so ended up with a really expansive area to stretch out in. Plus there is a lot of privacy there. The piano bar is fun and they make an excellent breakfast. We'd recommend it.

Our stay at the Inn was a delightful getaway. Since it was mid-week, we had the pick of rooms. Al was a genial and engaging host, and breakfast was delicious. We would definitely stay again, and recommend it highly.

We were down at the inn for our son's wedding. The atmosphere was lovely, the whole hotel clean and well maintained and the staff treated us like famiy. The included breakfast was delicious and well displayed. We would definitely recommend it for adults only or families.

Prince Solms is an absolutely beautiful inn that has maintained its antique integrity. The staff is extremely hospitable and accommodating. This is our second stay and we'll definitely be returning again.

This was a great anniversary getaway for my wife and I. We only live about 20 miles away but had never spent a lot of time in downtown New Braunfels. I chose the Prince Solms Inn based on some input from friends that had stayed before and also having driven by it at one time or another. It always looked like a neat place. It is an old building that has been remodeled into a very nice B&B. Being an old building, some things are to be expected. Like, the noise from the street or the hall. Fortunately, the owners are also aware of it and provide all guests with ear plugs for sleeping if you need them. It just reminded us of how our houses were when we were younger, not like todays where everything is sealed off from the outside world. The rooms were nicely done. Could maybe use a little more elbow grease on cleaning but nothing too bad. The staff was great. Very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was incredible. Green chili quiche, thick bacon that melted in your mouth, and fresh fruit. The inn has a great piano bar in the basement that is open to the public. Overall, a great stay. I would highly recommend it.
4.8 on April 24, 2011
Definitely enjoyed our stay here. The host was warm and friendly, went out of his way to make us comfortable. He even gave us a free upgrade to a better suite, since he had no other guests at this time. I would certainly consider staying here again on future trips

Enjoyed a short girls weekend in New Braunfels. The Prince Solms Inn was absolutely gorgeous, full of antiques and great hospitality. Perfect location, walking distance to downtown and the Comal River. The only downside was that the walls are very thin, but they do provide ear plugs for light sleepers. Overall a wonderful place to stay, can't wait to return!

Enjoyed our stay. This is the third time we've stayed at Prinz Soms and each has been pleasant & enjoyable. Meeting other patrons in the lobby or going out to dinner is a benefit of the Inn. breakfast is almost family. We'll probably be back in the future.
4.2 on March 29, 2011
We stayed at the Prince Solms for one night and loved the historic feel of the rooms and the hospitality of the owners. Unfortunately my girlfriend was sick so we turned in early and found that the thin walls let us hear all the goings on throughout the upper floor. Luckily our neighbors were not too loud but it is certainly worth noting for our future stays at the Solms. The next morning the proprietor was very apologetic and friendly before serving us a nice breakfast of fruit and homemade kolaches. Overall, I would recommend the Solms with the caveat of the thin walls. We also did not try the basement piano bar which seems like an excellent spot to grab a drink or 2.

The room and staff were wonderful. We stayed in the Feed Store which was full of charm. I could have done without the thin walls and the train that ran through town blasting its horn. Fortunately, earplugs are provided!

I treated my parents to an evening at the inn for their aniversary. I emailed the inn keeper and expressed how much i really wanted it to be a special night. he suggested a special occasion package for a reasonable price that included champange or wine cheeses and other snacks. and a variety of chocolates and flowers. it was perfect. they had a wonderful time. Between sipping wine on the upstairs porch and listening to live music in the basement piano bar on site...they had a wonderful time. Im sure they will visit again!
3.8 on February 16, 2011
Inn is located close to shops and restaurants in New Braunfels & Gruene. Room was cozy and had full bathroom. Al was very helpful on making suggestions for restaurants and giving directions. It's easy to find, plenty of on-site parking and there's a piano bar in the basement that stays open late after other local places close.
3.4 on February 15, 2011
The room and ambiance of the location was lovely. There are lots of places you can walk to from the Inn. I loved the piano bar downstairs. It is AWESOME. We ate at nice local restaurants Liberty Bistro and Pat's Place and really enjoyed the food. The way that the place was set up was that you could come and go as you pleased after hours we the key they provided. We stayed in the Summerhouse room and my husband LOVED the water pressure in the shower. The bed was nice and comfortable. The only complaint I had was that I did not sleep well due to the train that ran right by the Inn. It ran for a very long time and was very loud. Also the hot breakfast was not very good. I would go back but I would only have cereal, yogurt, and coffee or no breakfast at all there. Other than that it was a very nice stay.
3.4 on February 15, 2011
Prince Solms B&B with its ancient water-damaged wallpaper, high ceilings, and basement nightclub was a great discovery that tickled us pink. Breakfast egg casserole with fresh fruit was delicious. The proprietor was great. New Braunfels offered a really nice little farmer's market where we shopped plus coffee shop on the square and nice walking in town. We went in winter so there were no tubers. Excellent value!
4.6 on February 08, 2011
This is a charming place. We walked in and immediately knew we had found the perfect spot for a weekend getaway. Great location just off the square in New Braunfels with great places to eat within walking distance and a piano bar below the hotel. The rooms were all decorated in different themes and were immaculate. We loved this place and will certainly be back. And did I say it was a bargain!

We first went to the Prince Solms Inn in 1983 on our honeymoon. We didn't go back until our 25th anniversary in 2008. Now we go every year on our anniversary. We have also taken friends and family with us to enjoy the inn. The place is beautiful. We love the breakfast that is served on the weekend mornings. The owner is friendly and helpful. When we only have a weekend to get away, it's a great destination.
4.6 on January 09, 2011
we very much enjoyed our stay and cant wait to go back this spring. Great location with easy access to dining and short drive to Gruene. Loved the piano bar down stairs.

We stayed in the Texas Room, which was rustic and well appointed, also we were allowed to view some of the other room offerings. Next time, we would like to try the Sophie Room, for a change. Next time, who knows which we room we will chose. We really enjoyed the breakfast, the convenience of down town and the proximity to all of the local attractions. Our stay was during the Xmas time period and the downtown lights of NB were just beautiful. One of the attractions we wanted to see was the Xmas exhibit at the Slitterbaugn (sp?), for whatever reason, it was not open.

My husband and I have stayed here on several occasions and we LOVE this place. We have made it a place for a weekend get-away just for the two of us as well as a family spot when we have invited family members and friends to join us. No one in our party has ever been disappointed in Prince Solms (and my sister demands high standards). Al, the innkeeper, and the staff are so helpful and accommodating. The breakfast is great! The location is so convenient and within walking distance to both the Comal River and the downtown area. Gruene Hall, a must visit, is just a short drive away. Before we found this place we stayed at a local hotel chain but we won't be staying anywhere but Prince Solms Inn Bed and Breakfast on our next trip to New Braunfels. We can't wait to visit again!

This was a wonderful place to stay. The staff were very warm and friendly. We stayed in the Huntsman room which had a very soft, very comfortable king size bed. The breakfast each morning was delicious. The first morning we had sausage kolaches with cream cheese scrambled eggs and fresh cut fruit delivered to our room. The next morning we enjoyed pancakes, sausage, some incredible baked eggs, fruit, and crescent rolls with marmalade outside in their beautiful courtyard. There is also a fantastic piano bar in the basement of the hotel. The drinks were great and the atmosphere was very festive. The hotel is quite old and has a very antiquated aesthetic to it but at the same time it was very clean and lacked any kind of old or musty smell. The location was also very good. It's only three blocks to the Comal river and there is a wide variety of restaraunts, bars, pubs, and shops within easy walking distance. We will definitely be staying here when we return next year. I should also mention that the per night rate was on average about $50 cheaper than all of the big name-brand hotels in the area.

We were in town last weekend for a family reunion and decided to forgo the usual hotel route and find a place to stay with a little more character. We were pleasantly surprised to find a very large room filled with unique furniture and art. From the lingering music of the downstairs piano bar to the warm feeling we got from our surroundings, we couldn't have been more happy with our stay! The innkeeper Al was very helpful and accommodating when we needed to arrive after normal check-in hours. We weren't able to enjoy breakfast on Saturday morning, but we did enjoy what we had on Sunday morning in the dining room. Unfortunately we were so busy that we never got a chance to walk upstairs and take a look around, but we will be back for sure. This is a great value for a wonderful alternative to boring hotel rooms!

My husband and I stayed here on our get-away to Schlitterbahn without the kids! It was nice and I guess it was clean. You can tell the building is old and I think that made it feel less clean. We really liked being right in the heart of New Braunfels and so close to the water park. We appreciated breakfast brought to our room. I think we will try another place nest time.

We stayed here while we were touring the hill country and having fun at Schlitterbahn. The customer service was outstanding and so was our breakfast. The room and bed was very comfortable. While the bathroom is small and...gasp...there is no tv, I didn't find that a problem as we spent more time in the hill country and in the water.
4.4 on September 20, 2007
Beautiful, private, and cozy. This seperate, historical German homestead was wonderful and comfortable, with it's own full kitchen, full bathroom, living room, and private patio & porch. I'll definitely stay here again!
Thank you for the positive review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return the near future. Just a note regarding the "value" portion of the rating: Though bed and breakfasts are naturally more expensive than chain hotels, we have the the lowest rates of any b and b in the area, and they haven't increased in over five years. We also offer discounts at off-peak times, like weekdays —and even some weekends — November through April.
