“does exactly what it says on the tin.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

A quaint hotel in a lovely area. We had a warm welcome by the pleasant receptionists who’s English (and all the other staff/menus) was super. The rooms were large and adequately sized bathroom. Fresh, cozy, double bed that will accommodate a quite night’s sleep. The hotel's parking was at the back and was welcomed by the free price tag. The breakfast was copious with cheese, lots of cereal, fresh fruit juices, a delightful tea menu, German bread and fruit galore...this provided a wonderful start to our day (which was very wet) .
The dinner menu was typical Bavarian food and translated very well into English. The waitresses were courteous, diligent and the drinks came out in good time followed by the mains, the dessert took too long by which time I consumed 2 cups of green tea.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2011

A very nice hotel in a very nice town - Holzkirchen. Hotel was quiet, clean and the breakfast was excellent (one of the best coffee a traveller can drink in Germany - take this as a personal opinion) and about 15 minutes walk to the train station (from here you can go directly to Munich in about 1 hour). Staff is friendly and helpful and wear the bavarian dress. Do not worry if it will be raining during your stay (as it happened to me); they have umbrellas, too.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2007

Stayed here for 2 nights for work in August. Staff are friendly, and sometimes wear the bavarian dress. Breakfast was good, and rooms were good size with nice balcony (at least when you stay on the backside you have a nice balcony).
Free car parking for guests, and about a 10 minute walk to the trainstation, where you can get the S5 directly into Munich in about 50 mins, or a regional hourly in about 40 minutes.

Hotel was quite, clean, and for the price very good.

Holzkirchen itself is not a very exciting place, and I stayed there only because of work. However it is about 30 mins away from a large lake, and close to Munich.

  • Liked — Price and large balcony
  • Disliked — no air conditioning
