If you want a view of the Zugspitze and also of the quaint village of Grainau along with gourmet food and friendly, dedicated staff, this is your place. We were here for 3 nights and had a view of the village and mountains. The room was lovingly decorated. Our plan included a lavish breakfast buffet, coffee and sweets in the... More

We stayed for 7 nights in July 2014. The hotel is very comfortable and clean, and the staff are helpful and friendly. The food is excellent. The view of the Zugspitze from the hotel is stunning, and there's plenty to do in the area - pretty villages, alpine countryside, lots of castles and churches ... and many walking and cycling...

We drove in from SE Germany and called Hotel Waxenstein 1 hour out. What an incredible find! The hospitality was amazing. Our room looked out to the Alps with views beyond believe! And, the room was beautifully furnished. We had a nice balcony that looked up to snow covered mountains. Since we arrived at 6:00 p.m. we were happy not... More

Had a great 3 night stay in a superior room. The room had a nice little balcony that looked out over the mountains. Reminded us of the Tetons in Wyoming. The breakfast was nice with typical German fair, fresh breads, fruits, meats, cheeses, juices and coffee. The four course dinner was amazing, each night was something entirely different. We did...

The hotel does indeed offer very fine accomodations: lovely bedrooms, charming lobby...everything impeccable and tastefully decorated. However, there was confusion with our reservation. We had reserved 2 bedrooms with a balcony ( already paid in full) and they claimed to have a reservation for one room only, so we didn't get the room we were expecting.. It's a bit disappointing....

This was a lovely alpen hotel -truly beautiful. It is in the small village of Grainau, a little east of Garmish-Partenkirchen and is very convenient to the Zugspitze and Lake Eibsee. It is very very charming and has spectacular views. The rooms are not super large but are very nicely and charmingly decorated and have beautiful balconies with fresh flowers... More

Stumbled in, road weary and hungry on a rainy night. They kindly kept the kitchen open in the restaurant to feed us---delicious dinner, beautiful dining room, fine service. We opted for an upgraded room with a view towards the back of the Inn and were so happy we did as the view of the mountains the next morning was outstanding.... More

We stayed in an apartment with our 4 & 1 year olds for 8 nights. The room was very clean & well-kept with a lovely, almost French, rustic look. The views were amazing, without obstacle with the hotel set on top a hill. We had no trouble finding it. We only ate the complimentary breakfast which was yummy. The restaurant... More
