I stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night (late June 2013) in a very cheap, small, and clean one person room (mit private bath).
It is a “family” hotel and they cater to kids. So lots of small folks running about with young parents. If I were a young parent (rather than a young grandparent age person) I think I would like this a lot (well, I did like it a lot!).
As a non-parent (that is, my children are off doing other things and have not yet reproduced) who was there because it was across the street from a major hiking trail, I greatly enjoyed this place.
Let me count the ways.
First - it is across the street from the Olympic Village and the entrance to the Partnachklamm ( http://www.partnachklamm-info.de/ ). (Free if you get there before 8 am!!)
Second - the staff is very friendly, even if you don’t have a kid in tow.
Third - when I checked in I told the Frau at the desk that I wanted to start walking by 5:30 the next day. She asked me what I wanted for breakfast!!?? And then she suggested many things ... fresh fruit, granola, wonderful plain yogurt (don’t try this if you are from the US and like that sugary stuff we get back home), cheese, meats, breads, coffee, . . . all of this was just for a guy who was getting up early to hike!! I found out on Sunday that I basically got the best of the full menu. Wunderbar!!!
Fourth - room -- quiet as I could have asked for. (I do have two kids of my own, though they are quite old now, but that means I have the male gene that allows me to tune-out crying children. I really don’t remember any crying that persisted long enough to be public nuisances, but your mileage may differ.
Fifth -- food. Well, I ate alone both nights. I was traveling alone this trip (meinen Bruder was long since gone, and meine Frau was not yet arrived in Deutschland). First night I was too interested in an early dinner (and bedtime) to go elsewhere. Second night I was too tired to go elsewhere. I don’t think dinner is the strong point here, but it was tasty, nutrious, and not all that expensive.
Sixth -- there were other adults w/o Kinder here. I had a great time at the small bar my first night practicing my german on a guy from the far west (of Germany) and his friends and all of their spouses (three couples total). All very fun. All very much people closer to my age then those mit kinder. They all tolerated my attempts at German. Very nice “crowd.”
Seventh, I liked the staff. I pretty much had their lounge to myself (which is where the internet is). The staff tolerated my very poor Hochdeutsch (as opposed to my even worse Süddeutsch). They also tolerated my requests for beer (wunderbar!!) and generally left me alone to work on this review and many other emails. At least in this season the various rugrats were too busy elsewhere to worry an old man, sitting inside, about anything (though I did try to entice the few who left their parents long enough to come near to me).
Eighth, this is about as close as you can get to the start of the walk up the Zugspitz. I had a great day. As I left by 5:30 am (after the breakfast described above) I got up to the highest hut by around 10:30. After that it began snowing. I was somewhat dissappointed to realize that the Zugspitz train went higher than I could go w/o crampons or snowshoes. (This was an “unusual” year, these events, and my weekend, took place the last weekend in June 2013.)
So I liked this hotel a lot. It was clean. It provided me with a very early breakfast. It cooked two very substantial dinners for my day before and day after hiking. Yummy!!
