Very clean mordern hotel at the foot of the skiing hils, perfect for hiking and long walks in the hills. Friendly staff and very clean, rustic German alpine hotel. Restuarant serves good local cuisine and a hearty breakfast served in a sun splashed room.

This hotel is located in the mountains and the nearby town is billed as the highest town in Germany. The altitude made for pleasant days away from the heat. Our check in was very quick and easy. The room was adequate for our needs and was equipped with king bed, stocked mini-fridge, flat screen television with international channels, and large... More

No problem with this hotel. Stayed with a group of friends who were essentially there for steam railway tours. Service in smaller of two restaurants was slow, unprofessional and very slow! One evening no order taken until everyone arrived- the next orders taken but food did not arrive for ages. My meal was forgotten on 3rd evening - no real... More

Stayed here recently. You go to Oberwiesenthal in the winter for the skiing, and the hotel is ideally located for this, just a very short walk from the hill. The hotel itself is good - well kept. My room was pretty small, but did have all you wanted. The food at the hotel was buffets. I found the hotel bar... More

Oberwiesenthal is part of the old East Germany. This area of Germany has had to make great strides over the past decades and has. Older inhabitants have a hard time in English --they were taught Russian as a second language. I was glad I am fluent in German at this locale but with a little patience any English speaker should...

This hotel has a four star rating hanging above reception which needs to be removed. We stayed in a Pension just outside Meissen which had better service and more class than this hotel. From the rude girl behind reception who yes can speak very good English but what does that matter if she makes you feel like you wish you... More
