Really nice hotel. Simple and stylish design. Love the colors: grey, green, violet. Rooms are rather small, but it was fine since we stayed only 2 nights Guys at reception are fantastic and super friendly: you feel at home right after the arrival. Location very good: on the road leading to skiing area (some 5-10 minutes drive from the hotel).... More

I stayed here with my son for a snowboarding vacation. The place is very stylish and has a modern look which I liked very much. The lobby and bar area are nice to bring people together. Kids were able to play computer games together. Not sure why people comment on the lack of a true restaurant because the hotel does... More

The hotel delivers what it promises and if all 3 star hotels were the same, that would be great. Located a bit outside the city, so car is essential. The room was clean, tidy and quiet. In fact I hardly heard any of the other guests. Hotel seeks to be stylish and achieves it with a low key, simple and... More

Explorer hotel was perfect for us! Unpretenitous, washing machine was available, clean, interactive big screens in the foyer, kind of self-service at the breakfast. Backpacker style, with comfort ! We recommend the nearby spectacular gorge Breitachklamm, www.breitachklamm.com

(+) The Explorer hotel is an excellent choice for those who like skiing, snowboarding, hiking and mountain biking. It is located not far from Oberstdorf skiing resort. If you like walking, it would take you 20-30 minutes from the center of Oberstdorf to Explorer. If you don't like walking, take a taxi for 10-11 euro. The personnel in the hotel... More

Great concept around outdoor sport activity, with the ability to hire lockers for your equipment or some equipment itself. The provision of a spa area with sauna (and gym) is a great way to relax and rewind after a active day. I loved the flexible room design concept and the use of rough wood panels. I believe the building is... More
