“Good Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

The rooms are clean and nice. The hotel itself is a bit dated, and getting to the rooms is literally a maze of walkways, stairs, and an elevator. The breakfast was very good. One drawback is that the wifi is only available in the lobby area, not in the rooms. Huge plus is the laundromat (Yes I said that for Europe) right next door.

We selected this hotel because it was well rated, had carpark capability, and the attached restaurant was recommended in a short trip guide book for local food styles. We were not disappointed there either.We ordered a south facing room, for the view over the mountains , which for us was covered mostly by clouds with rain, but exceptional. The hotel staff were very welcoming, helpful and informative. What a great choice. Close to old town.

I stayed at Vier Jahreszeiten Berchtesgaden for four lovely nights as part of a small tour group. My room (a single) had a gorgeous view of the mountains, and a small balcony. Bed was very comfortable, bathroom modern, and the housekeeping staff was very efficient and professional. The hotel is situated on a main road, and rooms facing the mountains also face that road, which means you will hear some traffic noise if you choose a room with a mountain view. Solution, if you're so inclined: earplugs at night. I didn't use them because I was so enchanted by the view that I forgot to put them in.

The hotel is a little quirky (in a good way), in that it's not a chain hotel, it has lots of little nooks and crannies, and it's more like staying in someone's large home, really. The ambience is so comfortable and inviting. And the food is ABSOLUTELY to die for. Mr. Miller, the proprietor, also manages the kitchen, and he couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating to our group.

I miss this hotel already. I hope to return someday. If you choose to stay at Vier Jahreszeiten, you won't regret it.

We have stayed at the Vier Jahreszeiten many times over the past ten years, normally over the New Years holiday. If you arrive by train take a Taxi to the Hotel, and save your energy for expolring the town! Many of the reviews have referred to the layout of the hotel as a rabbit warren, but we look at that as some of the charm that draws us back. The front rooms give an excellent view over the valley and you can watch the train arriving from Munich. The staff has always provided excellent and caring service, and the rooms are large and comfortable. The Junior Suites are excellent for longer stays. The Restaurant and Stube provide an excellent place to relax, and the Owner/Chef Peter Miller offers a menu of traditional Bavarian meals that will leave you wanting more the next night. There are normally many wild game selections included, and all are prepared with care and satisfy the most particular taste buds. The excellent Breakfast Buffet gets you off to a good start in the morning. If you truly want to experience Traditional Berchtesgaden and Bavaria, stay at the Vier Jahreszeiten!

I just came back from Berchtesgaden, spending 5 days at the Vier Jahreszieten. I asked for a Junior Suite with a mountain view. It was a wonderfully beautiful Bayrisch room. It was white and blue, with beautiful wood trim. The bed was very comfortable, as was the couch. The staff was very freindly and helpful. Also, I must put in a very good word for the restaurant that is adjacent to the hotel. Outstanding food, and very pleasent service. Parking is a bit of a problem, and it is a bit of a walk, and there are a lot of stairs to manuver to get to your room. Other than that, this is a top flight place, and the people made it even better.

Room Tip: Just know you are going to have to manuver stairs and a bit of a walk to your room.

Great location as it is close to the rail station. We've been here many times and come back to relax and enjoy the scenery along with the restaurant.. Food is wonderful, absolute must if you stay there.
Rooms are wonderful, lots of space to put your items and very comfortable. Heading back there soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the mountains!

The hotel is really convenient, as it's just a 5 minute walk from the train station. Breakfast is great, breakfast room has great views of the Alps, and the staffs are friendly.

Like what the previous reviews have said, the hotel is at the top of a steep slope. Those with heavy luggage can consider taking bus 841 (towards Bad Reichenhall, daily, every hour from 09:45 to 17:45) from Berchtesgaden station. In the opposite direction, Bus 841 (towards Berchtesgaden station and Königssee) stops at the hotel at 07:19, 08:50 (Mon-Sat), and every hour from 10:05 to 19:05 (daily). Bayern Ticket can be used on bus 841. (Bus timing valid till May 2014)

Those travelling light can walk from the station to the hotel within 5 minutes. Coming out of the train station, turn right and walk along the outside of the station. You'll see a staircase with a sign "Zum Markt". Walk up the stairs, across the bridge, up the slope, and you'll see the hotel at the top of the slope. If you survive the hike to the hotel, visiting the picturesque old town of Berchtesgaden is very easy, as the old town is just a 5 min walk along the road from the hotel.
