“The 10 years it took to build it were worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We spent 3 nights here September, 2013 on a Stephen Ambrose tour from the US. It was beautiful, functional, in the middle of everything, had every convenience and every employee except one was absolutely deep south friendly. I understand that it was built on an empty lot, but took 10 years to permit and build because it ruined some views of the cafes and shops behind it, They do a lot for their guests and for the locals bringing in children for swimming and art lessons. I feel like they are not only a top service provider, but a good corporate citizen.

Room Tip: We had a room on the back overlooking several cafes - a little noisy. The front rooms had better vi...

My partner and I booked 2 rooms together with his sister and her 2 children and his mom.

The hotel is located literally in the middle of the old town of Berchtesgaden. No other hotel could claim "middle" like Hotel Edelweiss.

We were assigned spacious rooms and one room even had an in-suite bedroom for children. The rooms were clean and very well decorated with the traditional bavarian interiors. All amenities that we expect were present - even a room slipper and bathrobe especially for children.

On a side note: we learned during the course of our stay that this is a family run hotel because there was a homey feeling within its interior. Decorations were very well chosen the same way like a mother would decorate her own home. I even loved the oil burned glass "vases" that I had to ask where to purchase them.

The panorama restaurant and the pool are located on the 6th floor is boasting of an unrivaled view of the Watzmann mountain. Every afternoon, after a long days mountain stroll, we would relax at the whirlpool enjoying the specalur view while sipping the house cocktail "Edelweiss Spritz" - a must try!

There are so much more to say about the physical attributes of this wonderful hotel but to me - for us, what stood out in this hotel is how every single staff were extra-friendly, helpful, very pleasant to deal with and always serving with a smile. We loved every minute that we had something to do with anybody from the hotel.

Another surprise was the dinner menu that we were revelling about every evening. We booked a half-board rate and did not expect what we experienced during our stay at Edelweiss. We stayed 4 nights altogether and skipped the first night dinner. From the second night on, there was what seemed like an endless menu which were each divinely presented and were equally tasting like heaven.

I could go on and on but you should experience it for yourself!

This hotel is highly highly recommended and we would definitely come back again - for the service and for the excellent kitchen that they have.

Room Tip: Room 209 have an in suite separate bedroom for children. Spacious corner room.

Being a relatively newly built structure, it doesn't have that chocolate box Tyrolean look, but everything works beautifully. From check-in via the secure underground carpark the experience is efficient and enjoyable. Our room was large enough with effective wifi, a modern bathroom and shower, a good work desk and extremely comfortable beds. We faced the mountains at the front and could actually see the eagles nest from our open door above reception. They could not find us a double, queen or king bed sized room so we had to put up with the singles pushed together as happens so often in Germany and Austria - don't they like each other? The food was excellent, so much so that the rooftop restaurant was booked out the night we were there and we ate in the lounge restaurant. Breakfast was also excellent and included in the room price. There are lots of local activities including for kids and animals are allowed.

Room Tip: Those at the front have great views

Excellent food cooked to perfection and reasonably priced. Patio area outside of the Hotel on the main Town Square gives a good preview of life as it passes by in this very pretty Historical Town in Bavaria.

We loved our stay at Hotel Edelweiss. The setting is spectacular- the mountain views from the rooftop are stunning. I didn't want to leave!
The breakfast was memorable- fresh pressed juices, a dozen whole grain breads and delicious fresh spa-type food available. The indoor pool is nice and gave my son a good break from sightseeing. We were the only Americans there- surrounded by Germans on holiday, which made our stay even more interesting.
One note- the hotel itself is bigger and a little more 'corporate' than I would have guessed by the photos. This is not a quaint little inn. However- they do a great job.
Families: note there is also a small play room. We went in there for a few minutes just for the kids to act like kids and play in the ball pit. At check in they even provided child size spa slippers and robe.
The only thing I wish I had done differently is stay longer. It does take effort to get to Berchtesgaden- but worth it, I highly recommend Edelweiss.

Excellent location, service, quality of room, food. The only minor issue was that Internet was slow. They do have reasonably priced 5 course dinner which I recommend, unless you're a foodie. Ask for an exit parking ticket.

Room Tip: Ask for a view room unless you're concerned with noise.
