“Post hotel: re-visited”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

Last week I returned to this hotel after 4 years. Nothing changed in this place which means it keeps it's quality. The service is good and breakfast is excellent. The rooms are spacious and clean. I think I had found my base camp in Bavaria in this place.

What an incredible view, with a cute garden out the window and the side of a meadowy mountain behind that. Cows with bells around their necks wander the hills and make a pleasant tinkling sound. The staff speak excellent English and there is free wi-fi in the lobby. Excellent breakfast. Our kids slept on a fold- out sofa which could have been more comfortable, and there was no soap for the shower. The place is great, wish I was still there.

The hotel is beautifully situated in Obergrainau, facing the Waxensteinchain and the Zugspitze. Ample parking space and only a few minutes walk to the village center. Even the Untergrainau center - somewhat larger than Obergrainau - takes only a quarter of an hour walk.
Very friendly and helpful family, interested and involved in the village life, worth a Tourist Info.
Simple and efficient system to change your chamber key for the frontdoor one, so you don't have to run around with a bludgeonlike keyholder in your pocket.
Our room had a window with view at the Zugspitze and on the other side a terrace (seating two people comfortably) which overlooked the village. All is kept nice and clean.
Breakfast is copious and delicious. One of the best we have ever had in a hotel.
Only one little "shortage": we found the bed a bit short.

I am writing this review 3 years after my visit (2008). We stayed at this place for 6 nights and we have many complements. This hotel is not a luxury and the rooms are rather simple. But staying in this hotel gives you a feeling as if you came to stay with family or good friends. Everything is tidy and clean. The stuff is really nice and helpful. Breakfast is great and Andreas is a good pal to talk to and get tips about the hiking options in the region.
Highly recommended!

Like most of the other reviews, this hotel isn't luxurious, but, due to it's location, cleanliness and helpful owners, it doesn't have to be! Nestled next to a hillside, you couldn't find a better place to stay and explore this wonderful part of the world. Herr Seufferth spoke excellent English and was very helpful with his recommendations on how best to use our limited time. The room was clean and the balcony had a great view of hillsides, cows (with their required bell-gear!) and Zugspitz. Breakfast was outstanding and everyone was friendly--well almost everyone: watch where you park, lest you get a scolding from the hold "parking boss"! Overall super experience.

Room Tip: I believe ALL rooms have excellent views of the mountains.

We have been staying at this hotel since 1985. Family operated, it's a delightful hotel in Bavaria's most beautiful village. 2 km to Garmisch. The hotel is spotlessly clean, great views, charming. Does not have a lift, but a wide easy stairway. Large rooms, superb breakfast. Bavaria at it's finest.

We wanted to have a place to stay near Garmisch and could ot have ask for a better hotel than Hotel Post. Our room was extremely clean and spacious. from our windows we could look out at see the snow capped alps and in the other direction see all the beautiful bavarian timbered houses decorated so beautifully. This was the most comfortable bed i think i have ever slept in at a hotel in Europe. The breakfast was more then i could have asked for. THe owner was so friendly i felt like i was part of the family there. the location is a stone throw away from garmisch and all of the alpine experience you could ask for. I loved this place so much i hope they are available for my next visit to garmisch. In the morning i awoke listening to something that sounded like wind chilmes, when i looked out of my window i saw a hill side full of cows with bells around their necks. This was so perfect, i felt like i was in the middle of old world Germany, this is the real deal.
