“#1 for a reason... EXCELLENT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Everything about this stay was absolutely perfect. The rooms are huge and comfortable. Everything was super clean. The staff is unbelievably friendly and helpful. They speak excellent English. Breakfast was fantastic. The views from our back patio were breath-taking-- surrounded by the Alps! Excellent location for walking a few minutes into town. You can hear the roars from the creek from your patio. Awesome value for your money!!

From the moment of our arrival, the host, Hans and his wife, went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and to answer our many questions about the area, its restaurants and its attractions. Our room and the hotel were very clean and up to date on all amenities. Their suggestion for a restaurant for dinner was excellent, and their morning breakfast was one of the best.

The room, the view, the breakfast were all outstanding. We woke up this morning to a cloudless day, sun, snow on the ground......it couldn't get much better. The staff are extremely helpful, restaurant suggestions, help with luggage, and parking. We have stayed in Garmisch before, but this is the best!

The hotel edelweiss is a very nice hotel the room was nice and large, big bathroom always clean. It even had an indoor pool and an outdoor jacuzzi. The service was very nice and there are lots of things to do in garmisch. The hotel also has lots of fun tours, I went on the three country tour and it was amazing it was a lot easier than driving, and the tour guide showed us all the sights along the road. The only bad experience I had eight he edelweiss hotel was the food at Pullmans place I payed 30$ for a steak and it was not very good the mashed potatoes were too salty and the meat was burnt I expected more out of a 30$ steak. All in all it was a very nice vacation though.

We stayed three nights at the Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The entire hotel was extremely clean and the very spacious family room, coupled with very very friendly competent staff made for a great experience.Of note the owners took great time and effort to work with our children, who are just beginning to learn German, speaking with them constantly, explaining things both in German and English, to make this not only a fun holiday, but a learning experience for them as well. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner and his wife who made dinner reservations for us and provided numerous recommendations for excursions. Of particular note, the breakfast was outstanding. Eggs cooked to order, a wonderful array of fresh fruits, meats cheeses, cereals, breads and buns meant that we were spoiled for choice. We would not hesitate to return to this hotel on our next visit to Garmish

We stayed 3 nights at the Edelweiss and enjoyed our stay. Our room was large and well furnished and the bathroom was also spacious (only one small problem - poor drainage from sink). Our room faced the road, and while only a residential street, it carried a bit of traffic in the mornings; so while not really a problem, if you need absolute quiet the whole time, perhaps get a room on the other side where you will only hear the river. On the subject of the room, I do agree with some reviews that the mattress' were a bit firm, but this seems to be typical of most german hotels.
We were very impressed with the staff and their helpfulness, especially the young lady who checked us in, - so helpful, and recommended a couple of good restaurants, one of which was a great traditional Bavarian we would never have found.
Parking was free outside in the street, and we easily walked to the town centre. Breakfast was fine and although the coffee was not to my taste, a cappuccino was available on request and was quite good.
On the down-side, internet access was sporadic, & then it completely failed for 2 days. I accept things like this can happen, and the owners did quickly call a technician but it was not restored by the time we left. In all, a great place to stay, quiet but close to town, ... with a farm at the end of the street and the faint sound of cow-bells in the distance !

Hotel Edelweiss offered a good dose of traditional Bavarian charm. The day we arrived, the weather was incredible. Our accommodations were on the first floor, and our room's exterior doors opened onto the well-manicured garden. We sat outside and enjoyed a glass of wine/beer from the bar, and found the scenery stunning. More impressive views were to come in the days ahead. We both began to feel a bit vulnerable to someone simply out for a stroll possibly wandering into our room - or at the least - looking in, even if unintentional. There were rooms above us where we could have enjoyed the same view, yet would have felt more secure from any such potential incident. The bathroom was somewhat cozy, but was clean and completely adequate. At night we could hear the sound of the river, which helped our sleep. Hotel Edelweiss is well-located, within walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Garmisch town center. We took that stroll several times during our stay. I have noticed some discussion regarding this hotel's breakfast. In comparison, i would not complain, however, we enjoyed more variety in many of the other hotels. Underground garage parking was a bonus, and during the winter, I'm certain it would be particularly appreciated. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly, and we both recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a garden view, upstairs.
