This is the perfect place if you want to get to see the true face of Bavaria. This Hotel is one of the most authentic piece of architecture in the area - over 100 years old, a true gem! It has personality and charm, decorated with love for detai and vintage flair. The landscape is breathtaking and the balcony view... More

This hotel is old and linked back to history and it should stay that way. Start to renovate and you lose the old world charm. The floor boards squeak, the bath rooms are out side the rooms and the stairs make the loudest noise. WE JUST LOVED IT. We stayed here over Christmas and had loads of snow. we have... More

My boyfriend and I decided to stop in Bavaria on our way back from Italy to Kaiserslautern, to spend some time in his father's favorite spot in Europe. The area is absolutely breath-taking and everything is so close. We parked in the main parking area (Parkplatz Königssee)and then walked the 7 minutes to the hotel. It was only about 7€... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in Sept 2014 while visiting the region with a tour group. Location is amazing, right at the edge of the lake but sadly the hotel has seen better days (decades ago). Stairways and floors are very uneven making you wonder if the building is structurally sound. Our room was supposed to have... More

Excellent location right on the lake shore and next to the ferry station. Had a large room with balcony overlooking the lake but bathroom was tiny with old fittings. No aircon. This hotel is over 100 years old so it creeks but has character! No restaurant and breakfast buffet very basic.

I was booked on a walking trip around the Koenigsee region, and upon my arrival from Berchtesgaden could not believe my luck in finding the starting point hotel was right on the shore of the beautiful lake itself. As others have said, go for a room with a lake view. Even without the view, the hotel has a lovely old-fashioned... More

Nestled on the shores of Lake Konigsee, the Hotel Schiffmeister has a superb location. We had a balcony room overlooking the lake which was wonderful. The room was large and clean although the bathroom was a bit small. The breakfast was good although the breakfast room could use some updating. All of the staff were very helpful. There is free...

Amazing location and in Konigsee it cannot be beaten. We have stayed there twice. It is all about location and if you can manage a room facing the lake you will wake up to a spectacular view every morning. The hotel itself is very run down being a family owned hotel. It has loads of potential to be so much... More
