We just spent 2 nights at the Hotel Maximilian. It was lovely. Small hotel but very comfortable, modern rooms. The balconies were such a treat to sit and watch the beautiful surrounding mountains. The breakfast was only ok but being Southern Americans, we like a bigger breakfast. Food was fine, just limited choices and nothing special. Many things to do... More

No doubt the best hotel in Oberammergau, with only a few downsides. Really great rooms (Superior and De Luxe) with all you need just like any large city luxury hotel. Nice balcony where you can enjoy the sunset viewing the nice mountainous surroundings. OK breakfast and a good restaurant. Unfortunately there are roads on all balcony sides. The roads are... More

The rooms are simply beautiful! The decor is modern and tasteful, the rooms are very spacious and offer everything you could want or need in a room. The bathroom we had offered a huge tub and the entire room was warm and had great lighting. I really loved the luxury touches of automated shades, music in every room with a... More

I have been to "the Max" several times in 2013, and it is highly recommended. Rooms are very spacious and tastefully decorated, large bed, a large terrace/patio, own coffee machine and a well-equipped bathroom and minibar. Not that you need a minibar, the hotel has its own brewery resulting in the exellent "Maxbräu" and a great bar and restaurant. The... More

Fantastic place with topp service. The food and beer is very good. The hotel is central in Overammergau and just a small walk from everything. I have visited Oberammergau several times before and will the hotel will be my first hotel to search for next time in Oberammergau.

Modern hotell with a touch of german tradition. Big rooms with great bathrooms. Bright and clean, with housekeeping twice a day ( for that luxury feel). The restaurant serves some of the best food in Oberammergau and have its own brewery(which is always fun). The best thing though is probably the service. So open and friendly. I have only one...

Was in town on business, and this hotel was an amazing place to stay. Small enough to be personal, yet big enough to have "proper hotel" feeling. Very high standard. Only thing I missed was a work-out room, but the spa was great :-)

Nothing better than the Maximilian Hotel & Restaurant. Great service, comfort, atmosphere, great assistance, nice people, excellent restaurant and super beer. A wellness area is available for the hotel customers, well equipped and always very clean. The Hotel is quite close to the NATO School, just 15 minutes walk. Great place to stay.

I used to live in Oberammergau but came back to visit several years later and was pleasantly astounded to find the Hotel Maximilian. Built in 2007, it combines a 5 star hotel experience with a professional, personable and fabulous staff at the front desk, restaurant and housekeeping with a brewery on site! Americans will appreciate the high standards - beautiful... More

Based on previous experience, we stayed at this hotel again. Not surprisingly, another fantastic stay. This hotel is absolute one of the best in the region, if not the best. And having their own brewery is not a bad thing! The only minus I find, is that you have to listen to the bells from the churh ringing every "bloody"... More
