Prince Solomon Inn

5 on March 09, 2017

We stayed in the Chisholm room, which was very nice. The main building was under renovation so the dining room was closed, but they gave us plenty of gift certificates to use at a restaurant. The whole stay was enjoyable and seamless.


Great weekend

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.


New Years Eve in New Braunfels

really like the piano bar and historic hotel


Love this B&B

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.


Great place!

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.


Relaxing B&B

4.0 on October 29, 2016

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.


Do you want to stay in a doll hose?

4.8 on October 23, 2016

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.


Foating the Comel

Everything was better than I had expected. Had a great stay would stay again.


Return Visit is a Must

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.


Very friendly and helpfully innkeeper

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.
