“Wonderful choice underneath the Zugspitze!”
Reviewed April 13, 2010

I believe this may be an RCI timeshare property or was, so I was a bit hesitant to book, because you always hear horror stories about timeshares. When we checked in, I found we were upgraded to a family room, which was really an apartment (two bedrooms, hallway and bathroom w/small refrigerator). We had a wall of windows with an unobstructed view of the Zugspitze (just roll over in bed and look!!) w/a large balcony and view to the babbling brook on the other side. The indoor pool was fun, although either the water or the tiles were green, so hoping the water was balanced. Nice large sauna and Moorish tiled spa area w/tanning bed, Turkish steam bath and an extra large "bathtub" where you can put in a coin and get a hottub experience (saw a guy in it w/an ear-to-ear grin). Too bad it is only big enough for one person and you only get a 20 minute bubbling of jets and lights.

Beds were comfortable (pillows flat as a pancake though, so bring your own) and I only heard the train go by 3x (it makes a wooshing sound)...this is the train that takes folks up to the Zugspitze cablecar and goes directly by one side of the hotel. It was a non-issue for us but I thought I would mention it in case someone is super-sensitive.

Breakfast was EXCELLENT....lots of continental choices plus scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon...exceptionally friendly staff all throughout the hotel. Had dinner in their restaurant one night...fabulous trout and potatoes, one son had spaghetti carbonara (a bit runny) and the other a pizza (which he said was good)...we were tired after arriving and so glad to have tasty food before going to bed. All reasonably priced.

They have free wire-less internet...but myself, a British couple, an American and an Italian...none of us could figure out why our browsers were not working? We tried checking firewalls, security settings, etc. Two of us could access Skype (and call people and see them on screen) and our laptops showed we were connected to the internet...but neither IE or Firefox would show webpages, so I am assuming we were doing something wrong? Unfortunately, no one at the hotel could help. So if you don't know your way around computer-wise, google how to troubleshoot that! It was VERY frustrating! There was also no public computer in the lobby (like I think it was advertised), so no internet for us.

Loved the daily sheets put under your door every morning with a sightseeing or hiking suggestion, weather report, sayings of the day, etc...We plan to come again when the weather is nicer...in April, it's definitely wintercoat weather as it didn't get above the mid-30s Fahrenheit!

Our 2 families of 4 stayed at this hotel over the Christmas holiday. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The rooms are no-frills, but perfectly comfortable. Ours had a small refrigerator and sink which was convenient. The pool/spa facility is great! Breakfast was tasty and offered something for everyone and the dining room at dinner time served wonderful meals at a reasonable price for the area. We loved the location as it's away from the crowds of Garmisch as well as close to the train station for the Zugspitze. All in all, a great stay! We would recommend this hotel and would go back if we ever have the opportunity. Thanks to the staff at the hotel for helping us to have a great holiday!
