“Historic and homely”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

My sister and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights at the tail end of summer. From the outside it's hard to gauge how big the hotel actually is, but when you go in you soon realise it's actually really large with many floors and corridors extending far back from the reception.
The rooms are extremely clean and well maintained. We overlooked the grounds of the hotel which house ponds and a mini lake and are beautifully maintained. We spent many an afternoon relaxing on the sun loungers provided; a lovely bonus of being a hotel guest if you want some peace and quiet from the town or local parks!
Breakfast was abundant and delicious every morning and the staff were very helpful and attentive.
The location of the hotel is superb too - you can find it at the bottom of the town, away from the busiest parts, but perfectly placed to walk to pretty much all local areas of interest.
The only real negative is the lack of air con. We stayed during four extremely hot days and during the nights the temperature was a little bit unbearable, even with the hotel patio doors open. The provision of fans would have been a good idea.

Pros: great breakfast, walkable to local beer garden and shops in town, pool and common areas, rooms are decent for the price

Cons: grounds and exterior are tired, no a/c

Overall a good value but know going not it that this is more like a 3 star hotel. Convenient central location if you want to cover sites in area and Salzburg.

Dear Travelingduncs,

Thank you very much for your honest feedback.

It is nice to hear that you like our breakfast buffet, our rooms, the swimming pool and wellness area and the location of our hotel. It is boardering at the city centre of Bad Reichenhall and also not far from Salzburg (around 15km).

The Axelmannstein is a hotel with a sense of its own history, but we always try to improve our facilities also exterior.

It would be a pleasure to welcome you back in the future!

Axelmannstein has improved since my last visit. Above all, it offers very good value for money. You can stay in what used to be a grand hotel, enjoy the great public rooms and the park, use the large indoor pool and have excellent breakfast (included) in the large Parkrestaurant. All this for the price of a better B&B in the UK.
Location is central in this typical and very pretty turn-of the century continental Spa town. We stayed in a newly redecorated room in the new wing with a large private balcony and made use of the large indoor pool. The park is now better maintained, the pond features a fountain and has been cleared. Minor quibbles do not offset the great value: bathroom toiletries are poor: dispensers for hand wash and 'all over shampoo' with freebies body lotion. I would prefer shower gel, shampoo and lotion in this category. Bathrooms are not the same standard as the rooms but a new lick of paint helps. And, the bottle of water at 4.50 EUR in the room always looks shabby. Pay-for water should stay in the minibar and free bottles (a cheaper local water will do) should be in the room. This will add 1 EUR/room/night can easily be absorbed but will attract positive comments.
There is a large number of foreign tourists but some staff (even front-desk) have only minimalistic language skills. English information and text needs to be vetted by someone who actually understands English.
In sum, Axelmannstein is a great hotel in a delightful spa town. It doesn't pretend to be the Ritz, so not 5-star, nor does it charge the prices. 4 star plus is accurate. Instead it is excellent value for money.

Very good and very old hotel. Maybe the worst part of the hotel is the lobby, it looks a little bit dark and worn out, but don't let it misguide you. My message to the hotel management, the lobby is the first contact with the hotel, put some more effort in it. As you leave the lobby, you understand how good the hotel is. Unlike the modern hotels architecture, this one has wide corridors and lots of “unused” space that gives you a comfortable feeling in every place in the hotel (except the lobby). Great, large and comfortable rooms with ceilings approx. 4 meters high. You get the feeling that you are somehow back in the history. Perfect restaurant and perfect food. The hotel garden is huge and absolutely beautiful, but I think that they are not using it as they could (maybe because there are more rainy than sunny days, who knows). The bar in the garden wasn’t opened at all. The hotel has an indoor pool which is very useful on a rainy day. Very quiet and peaceful place, not only the hotel, but the town in general. After 9 pm you can hear only the birds and the church bell in the morning. The only crowd place after 9 p.m. is the Beer Garden which is 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel. So, for a quiet getaway, and relaxing couple of days this hotel is PERFECT

A great little hotel in a great location. Close to Salzburg, which is a beautiful place when the sun is shining.

We got a good deal from Groupon, which gave us a 50% discount and we didn't encounter any problems with this. The staff and service were great!

If you are looking for a quiet break then this is perfect!. As twentysomethings there didn't seem to be many other couples our age, but this wasn't an issue.

We stayed for two nights and spent most of the time visitng Salzburg, which is only a short drive away and during our stay the weather was glorious! The first night we had dinner at a vegetarian/vegan Indian restaurant. I had tofu steak and it was delicious! We then enjoyed a nice walk around the centre. Amazing!

We returned to Salzburg the next day to see the vibrant city at it's peak. It is full of amazing views, great shops, and a variety of restaurants.

On our last day we spent the morning near the hotel. The breakfast buffet was great. So I'm told by my girlfriend as I was on a vegan diet at the time and I was unable to fully enjoy everything they had. We visited the local Reber Cafe, which is connected to an amazing confectionary shop.

I would visit again!

This is a charming old hotel, slighly (just slightly) worn here or there like my Great Aunt's House- but still charming with a nice restaurant and sauna. My room (106) was just up the staircase (luggage had to go up the elevator) but this made it very convenient. My room was rather larger by European standards- even by American Standards- the bed, as is typical was two twin beds pushed together. The bath room was very large with double sinks and a very nice hot shower.

The meeting room we were in (for 60 people) was a large ball room, carved molding and chandeliers with gold trim and floor to ceiling portaits of what I suopose were long dead Bavarian nobillity. The restaurant had large glass windows to one side where the snow covered mountains were visible a very nice venue.

Wifi for our event was free but sporadic (if everyone went onto WIFI for the meeting it brought the connections to a standstill). No workout facility but a nice running trail (paved) only a half a kilometer run down the street in a park that parallels the river. Nice swimming pool (heated and indoor) and sauna in the basement floor.

Good value and recommended for staying in Bad Reichenhall
