I stayed here for two nights in June 2011 with my fiancee. We were very pleased, especially after staying at a subpar place in Munich. The hotel itself is great--very clean (as most places in Germany), brightly painted, and just very welcoming. The breakfast was standard fare, but very good. It's also very quiet since it's located on a side street outside of the center of town.
The location away from town, though, might be a problem for some. We didn't rent a car, so we were walking everywhere. It's probably about 20 minutes from town--a pleasant walk through a beautiful neighborhood. This really wasn't an issue for us.
More of an issue, however, was its distance from the trailheads. Our main reason for coming to Garmisch-Partenkirchen was to hike in the Alps. The hotel is about an hour's walk to the partnachklamm (the gorge with the river running through), which we used as the beginning of our hike. I didn't really see trail heads much closer than that. Although long, the walk was pretty--through green pastures on the edge of town, backed by the foothills of the Alps!
I definitely recommend this hotel--it's a great value. Just bear in mind the distance from sights!
