Once installed at Selva Negra, the market centre and town restaurants are just out of the hotel gate, yet the grounds and rooms are quiet and private. Set on slopes to the SW of the centre, the hotel has plentiful parking, lovely gardens, and a variety of well appointed rooms. The restaurants, decorated in Bavarian style, serve generous buffet breakfasts...

I give this hotel five stars in five words, what more would you be wanting in a hotel ?! Besides all amenities, my spacious suite had a huge fireplace and a large terrace offering magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. Photos of most rooms & suites are available online. Staff was friendly and efficient, willing to make your stay as...

The food, attention to details, the service, everything was just superb. Thank you for bringing back memories from when I was a kid. If you are visiting La Colonia Tovar, you must go to the Selva Negra.

One of the best things about this hotel is the location. However, you do have to "hike" your way up to town but it's only three minutes to go up the steep drive through. They have the most wonderful green areas, a freezing cold pool and a small park. Walk around, breath the fresh air and smell the flowers. The...

I visited this German town and stayed at this spectacular hotel. The smell of pine trees and the wooden furniture mixed with the mist makes everything so magical. I recommend this place so far. There are a wide variety of meals, specially their strawberries with cream, don't miss it!

Great option if you want to visit "La Colonia Tovar" and stay in the middle of town. Tip: ask for a ride to get to the top as it is a bit of a climb to get to the town. When staying there, the best part is definitely the food. It has an amazing restaurant. My personal favorites are the:...

I stayed in this hotel with my girlfriend and we had a great time. I believe it was a bit pricey, specially after being told about other hotels but nevertheless it was a comfortable place; we paid around Bs. 2.000 for one night about two months ago. Our room was a bit far from the lobby, but this was something...

You really do get the feel of an old and quaint Alpine village as you drive through town on the way to the hotel. Half expecting to hear oompah music from some local tavern, we made our way through the charming little town. Even more in evidence of the Colonia's beginnings is the many blonde haired, blue eyed villagers that...

The Selva Negra, while very charming, and having a very old European feel, has some issues. I don't speak Spanish, so I can only comment on experiences of the room, and the grounds not directly on the friendliness of the service...only indirectly through what my girlfriend experienced (she lives in Venezuela). The grounds are quite nice. The Selva Negra itself...
