The Hotel Helmerhof is in distance of one mile from the castles. The Hotel can be conveniently reached by car, but it is difficult to reach by public transport. It is situated in a calm area. Free parking is available.
Some of the rooms offer a view on Castle Neuschwanstein which is very far away, probably not worth the extra money. For the price of well over € 100.- for deluxe room on BB, more could be expected. The room is comfortable and clean, equipped with good bedding, a small desk which is totally obstructed by the LCD TV. A settee with a small table is placed near the window. The bathroom with shower cabin and toilet was inacceptable and claustrophobic small, in addition with inefficient ventilation. The Wi-Fi connection was unstable and slow making it useless.
The food in the restaurant was good and it seems to be popular also with local guests. The selection of smaller meals typical to the Bavaria cuisine is limited. The breakfast buffet was richly garnished. Scrambled and soft boiled eggs are kept in a food warmer. When we asked for fried eggs with bacon, our request was taken rather discontently.
Considering the entire stay, the hotel is well appointed, but I was rather unimpressed about the value for money ratio. Worse is the cruel lack of the factor of well being and warnth of hospitaly that we generally experience in Bavaria.
