“Not as expected......”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2004

Stayed at the Hotel Bavaira for two nights in October 2004. We had heard great things, but were disappointed. Our room was tiny, the curtains not particularly clean, only one drinking glass provided for two people (double room), shower stall so tiny and badly designed that it was difficult to turn around, adjustment for shower head on pole was so worn that it didn't work, coat hooks on door falling off.....and then there was the dining experience.

Had dinner in the hotel the first night. Harsh service, rice out of a box plus chicken with tomato soup poured over it, and "Banana Copacabana" for dessert...a small scop of vanilla ice cream, two large banana slices, whipped cream, and some chocolate sauce! Then we didn't fold our napkins properly and were put to "Napkin Schule." (I quote.)

But, bed linens were cripsy clean, bed was comfortable, our window opened properly (Our friend's didn't.), and the hotel has a convenient location.

We'd try about ten or fifteen other hotels in Garmisch-Partenkirchen before returning to Hotel Bavaira.

I along with a friend have been a guest in this hotel every year since 1990. What better recommendation can I give ?

It is family owned with TV hairdryers and all necessary equipment to make your stay lovely. The breakfast buffet is a big spread and they serve dinner for those who care to eat in the hotel.

The hotel is convenient to the train staion for those who travel by train. And I might add, it is affordable.
