The hotel is new and nice. The rooms have modern furniture and are comfortable. Staff at the reception very friendly but not the same that at the "restaurant" or snack bar that replaces it, in fact there is no real restaurant at the hotel, and the snack bar has limited offering.
For families the location is really nice and they offer several options, like mountain bikes rental and a nice playground for kids. All in all a nice place if you don't care about going downtown to find a restaurant to have lunch and dinner. Breakfast instead is really varied. Rooms are not exactly very cheap.

Hello dear Guest.
Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor.
Your right, we do not have a restaurant in the hotel. Also you can use the Dine-Around-Pass (3 Dinners in 4 possibility restaurants in Oberstdorf). The receptionist show you the best restaurants in Oberstdorf.
We try to make that you enjoy your days in Oberstdorf.
Best regards
The Explorer Hotels Team
Alexandra

If you think location is important when you choose an hotel, you will want to double check before you choose this one. Fancy hearing every drive-in order repeated on the loudspeaker of the local McDonald's ? You'll get it. Want to be able to count every car entering Obersdorf ? You'll be in a commanding position, less than an hundred from the bridge to town (mind, the railways tracks are not very much farther). Those two feats can be achieved on your 40cm wide balcony (no chair in the room for that matter: just where could you put it ?). Do it yourself is the motto of the place : go and find your tumbler in the sauna room, prepare your own omelette. A rather daring concept when they charge you up to 100 Euros per night at peak dates. And do not trust a bill that waives a charge: you'll get it nethertheless on your credit card before you reach home

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor.

The location of the Explorer Hotel Oberstdorf is such that our guests have the bike trails and the hiking trails right from the doorstep.

Too bad that you enjoy our fresh design concept like no budget, in which the guest can try it for yourself as well as times (such as myself fry eggs, potter working on his bike, etc .....). We have deliberately left out some things in the bathroom such as the disposable toothbrush cup - "the environment's sake." On request, glasses at the bar which you can then use as a tumbler.

Our trendy Explorer rooms have plenty of space to relax. The highlight is the cozy window seat with cushions. The rooms are very functional with lots of shelves, hooks, shelves and cabinets - perfect for guests who come with a lot of sports equipment to us.

Our prices in the Explorer Hotel is very simple structure, we differ depending on the season, midweek and weekend. (From € 39.80 you can already book a night with us.) Let me out - reminiscent of advertising!

Thank you for looking at the Explorer Hotel, we wish you continued Happy.

Alexandra and the entire Team Explorer Hotel Oberstdorf
