Stayed here for one night when I came to the area to hike Zugspitze. They were very helpful in coordinating a late arrival and the room was very clean. Breakfast was great and of no extra charge. Stayed August 2015

The hotel looked great from the reviews, though it wasn't the best reviewed hotel in Ettal. Our experience started when I found out that the apartment I'd booked for my family had been given to someone else, and we were given two rooms and free breakfast instead. Normally, it wouldn't bother me too much, but one room had such a...

We find this hotel exploring the Garmisch area in Bavaria. Its on top of a nice Mountain with a beautiful view and its so peaceful and quiet. The view was like a picture of what i believe heaven could be like. The smells and the sounds of animals, birds and livestock was a perfect combination of getting out of the...

Free parking and free breakfast. Good thing . We got to breakfast at 9:00 am on Sunday. No eggs, no coffee. We were told we were last . We did get coffee. The room was fine; bath was clean. We had dinner in town at Edelweis. But the hotel does serve dinner at 7:00.

Great little spot in a gorgeous village. Friendly staff, clean rooms and functional bathroom. Lovely views. Breakfast room could do with some updating. Parking right outside which was great. Indoor pool and sauna which is lovely after a walk in the snow! Recommended.

This hotel is clean with good rooms. The view is spectacular I mean what a way to wake up. The staff can't speak pretty much any English but are still accommodating. The breakfast was good/not the best Iv had but certainly not the worst. The hotel is clean and shower was good. The towels are very small and the pillows...

The check in person did not speak much English but was friendly. We were a man and a woman who are just friends. Although we did not mind sharing a room, we did not want to share a bed. He charged us an additional 30 Euros to get a room with two beds instead of one. It was worth it...

Stayed here for one night when we came to the area to hike Zugspitze. All the hotels in the area were very expensive and then we found Alphotel and it was only 70 euro a night and we could have our 3 year old Doberman stay with us. Rooms were nice and clean with fridge and a nice balcony that...

Very nice area, beautiful view. Hotel is good, however I would expect better services. The sauna is supposed to be open from 4pm, we came at 5pm and need to ask to turn it on. When the hotel was fully booked, the breakfast was not complete. We needed to wait for some salami, hot water, etc. As services we would...

“Rooms on the side of the terrace have the best view, but maby not so quiet because of the terrace. But they close the bar at 23 o'clock so it's ok.”
