    « Good but not great »

    We had a great time there but Garmisch is just fantastic anyways. Our balcony door was broken the whole time we were there even though we told the front desk. We were also charged extra for our kids sleeping on the sofa bed in our room even though we already paid for the bigger room. We had a great time despite all that but I could understand how that might irritate some people.

    « Amazing hotel and service »

    We stayed in a family room as part of a European holiday and could not have had a better time here. We arrived late evening after a long day of driving. We were welcomed with a round of drinks whilst our luggage was taken to the room - great first impression. This continued with the room, spacious, well equipped and, as we learned the following morning, a great view. Breakfast was fabulous also - amazing choice and quality, with again great service. The front desk staff also sorted out tickets for the local attractions - nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the restaurant one evening and found this to be just as fabulous too - the waitress really made a special effort with our young children and became their best friend. The hotel itself had everything and was very picturesque both inside and out. I was especially impressed that to get to the block where our room was located could be done from the main reception through a tunnel system. I imagine this would be very welcome in the winter months. This was one of the best stays I've had anywhere, anytime.

    « great stay »

    while visiting our daughter in garmish we stayed here 2 different trips.1 in winter 1 in summer. our daughter worked at the edelweiss lodge & resort for the military. very clean facility english spoken by desk staff. centrally located close to rental cars, train station, shopping & eateries. we had a great stay both times.

    « The Best. Now I understand how that is in the title »

    Fantastic staff. Great facility and location. Nice to have customer service as a priority. Couldn't do enough for us. Example at check in we were told to sit in the lobby area so that we could check in while enjoying a beverage which was brought to us while we filled out the registration. Small effort but nice touch.

    « Beautiful Hotel »

    Not what I expected when I thought "Best Western"! Exceeded all my expectations. Beautiful modern room. Romantic. Literally could lie in our bed and look out the French doors at the beautiful mountains. Great service and excellent breakfast included with room. Located walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores, and just about any sight you'd want to see. We'll do this again.

    « Expensive! »

    I stayed in this hotel with my wife for 3 nights in Aug. the hotel is nice from almost every aspect except when it's very busy. Staff become less friendly and the service quality decreases. Its also overpriced, i honestly wouldnt stay in it again.

    « Great place to stay in Garmisch »

    The hotel was very nice. The check-in was personal and we were greeted with a glass of sparkling wine while we sat on the terrace. They brought our paperwork there to complete the check-in. I had arranged for a treat for my wife in the room for our anniversary which was in place when we arrived in our room. The hotel is a relatively short walk to the town center and they have shuttle service if you prefer. We also had our car and went to some nice surrounding areas. We were able to purchase our Zugspitz summit tickets right at the reception desk which was nice. Breakfast was fantastic. They had a great variety. They had a wonderful selection of loose leaf tea varieties which my wife enjoyed. Certainly one of the nicer Best Westerns we've stayed in.

    « Efficient and friendly Hotel. »

    The check-in was friendly and efficient, and other staff were friendly (shuttle service -free) and helpful from A-Z Room is nicely decorated, small but tastefully furnished. The inside courtyard is spacious with a large green area for relaxing. The terrace adjacent to the bar and restaurant and comfortable and nice for lunch, dinner or just drinks. Location is very close to the town center and easy to reach within walking distance.

    « Good breakfast and nicely refurbished rooms but a couple of nagatives too. »

    First impressions count when starting a holiday and I have to say my heart sank a bit when we entered the town (in an almost stationary queue of traffic) as the hotel is off the main road behind a petrol (a couple side by side actually) station. The car park was full and we had to try and find somewhere to park off site as best we could. The weather was forecast rain for the week (we arrived a Sunday, mid August) and we asked what the policy was if we wanted to shorten out stay by a couple of days. Said we could but we would only get 20% of the cost returned. Hotel was fully booked though. We did have a refurbished room, new looking bed which was actually very nicely done, good quality. It is more a boutique hotel. We supposedly had a family room but it was a normal sized room with an extremely hard sofa bed (kids were complaining and I have to say, it was rock hard). There was very little floor space with the sofa bed out and I would have expected more from a hotel which cost this much for a 'family room'. I would say overall my rating would be good (but there is only an Average or a Very Good rating available - this hotel goes in-between, too expensive for what it is for a very good rating).

    « Beautiful location, nice traditional hotel. »

    Myself and my partner travelled to Garmisch for my birthday last year and stayed in the Best Western - Hotel Obermuehle. The hotel it's self is in a good location, only a 10 minute walk from the center of town where the bars and shops are. Price wasn't overly cheap but you get what you pay for and this was well worth it. The rooms were a little outdated but were due for refurbishment in the next few months whilst the rest of the hotel was modern and tastefully decorated. The balcony was a good size and the views of the mountains were breathtaking. The grounds were beautiful and the weather was that nice we were able to take advantage of the outdoor sun beds and lawns. Food was brilliant, we had breakfast in the hotel each morning with a huge selection to choose from. Sitting out in the sun eating breakfast with those views was heaven! I also had a club sandwich as a snack which was lovely but a little pricey. Dinner was a set menu which was very nice, i didn't enjoy the cold melon and pink peppercorn soup but that was only due to personal taste. Staff were fantastic with fresh bedding and towels daily. We had a couple of questions on how to spend our time there upon arrival and the lady behind the desk got us a complimentary drink, sat down with us and talked us through all the sites and attractions along with providing maps and leaflets. Would definitely stay here again, cant wait to see what the newly refurbished rooms look like!

    « Convenient Location and Beautiful Hotel with many amenities »

    Beautiful hotel within walking distance of downtown. Hotel is situated between an old mill stream and river that flows through town. Nice walking trails along river. Convenient location for bus to cable car/train to Zugspitz. Delicious breakfast buffet. Heated indoor pool, sauna, exercise room and game room.

    « My opinion »

    Amazing hotel in the center of garmisch, near to a super market and a coffee shop. The breakfast was really tasty but the service is really bad. Our suite is good but old, clean and big enough. The hotel needs more actives. There are some restaurants nearby and a hospital.

    « Superb location with very professional staff »

    This was my third time in Garmisch and rather than use a B&B we decided to try Best Western Hotels again after years of not utilizing them as I had some marginal experience with the chain in B.C.(Chilliwack) some years ago. I was impressed at this hotel and chose during the balance of the trip to stay with Best Western where we could. The Hotel is superbly run with very proficient and helpful staff. Our room was a family unit as we were three in our party and was very clean, roomy and well laid out on the second floor of the second building. The hotel has a modest pool and a passage underground between the Hotel's two buildings which would be very handy in the Winter given that Garmisch is a year around resort. The view of the mountains from the Hotel is stunning and the Hotel itself is quite quiet. During our stay there was a large group of muslims visiting from the middle east and unfortunately their children ran unchecked throughout the facilities which made our experience somewhat difficult. I spoke to the management and they had said that each group that came in from there were provided with allowed behavior which they had agreed to only to ignore and disregard the stated rules of behaviour. Other than this everything was to our satisfaction and parking was provided free at the entrance to our building during our stay. We want to particularly mention the courtesy of the front desk staff who were only too willing toassist us in securing our next hotel accommodation in Breitnau for the next night. A very satisfactory experience and a renewed appreciation of excellence in service.

    « Our first choice hotel »

    We arrived in Garmisch Partenkirchen just before 1.00pm and took a taxi from the station to the hotel (8.40 euros) but we could have rung up for the free shuttle bus from the hotel. On arrival at the hotel we were given a very warm reception and we were given offered a free welcome drink while we filled in the paperwork for our guest pass. As we wanted to visit Oberammergau we left our luggage at reception and walked back to the station for the train. (we had a 1 day "Bavaria Ticket" which was valid for train and bus travel within the Bavaria area. On our return to the hotel we were given our room card and told that our suitcases had been taken to our room. WHAT A SURPRISE when we opened the room door - all the bedrooms and the stairs and corridors in the block had been fully refurbished last winter. The large room we had been given was a dual aspect gable end and has been done up to a high standard. The room had been fitted out with a double wardrobe with lots of shelves, a large double bed, 2 seat settee, desk/mini bar and fridge, tv, coffee table and more. The bathroom had two shower heads over the bath with modern fitments throughout. Everywhere in the room was spotlessly clean and tidy. The breakfasts were up to their normal usual high standards and the chefs were in and out of the kitchen topping everything up all the time. The staff here really look after you and Wilfred (the jack of all trades) and Daphne on reception gave us lots of ideas and help throughout the week. The guest pass now includes free travel on the train to Reutte in Tirol as well as free travel on the local buses which run from near the hotel on the main road.

    « Great stay »

    We stayed here three nights as I ran the Zugspitze Supertrail in Grainau in June. We liked the hotel very much, good location, great breakfast and nice people. The room was clean and had a nice view. We did not use the swimmingpool and other facilities. We would have liked to stay an extra night, but felt the €190/night (for a Mondaynight) was too much...

    « Great all round hotel. »

    Very friendly team, including the resident dog. Great location on the outskirts of Garmish. The hotel has a lovely pool with a view and super sauna and steam room facilities. The breakfast offering was great and the onsite juicer, and loose tea leaves are a nice touch. Great to be able to enjoy a great cup of tea on the European continent. Only suggestion would be to introduce local breads to the selection.

    5
    « Best last minute selection we ever made! »

    Garmisch-Partenkirchen is one of my favorite towns in Germany and the great experiences at this hotel have now further enhanced my opinion of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. This hotel offers very clean, modern rooms and spa facilities (sauna, stem bath, infrared room, pool) while the restaurant offers old-world charm. Breakfast (fruhstuck) included fresh fruit, cold cuts, salmon, cheeses, German breads, cereal, hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, sausages, pastries, and a variety of beverages including sparkling wine. Also provided for the guests' enjoyment is a heavy duty juicing (no-pulp) machine into which guests can insert the fresh produce provided (apple, carrot, celery) to create custom fresh juice quickly and easily. Also included in our rate was gratis use of electric bicycles which we used to get near the base of the Zugspitz. The hotel is adjacent to a stream which provides soothing sounds. BTW, Obermuhle literally means over the mill; an old mill with a broken waterwheel is on your left as you enter the drive way. This Best Western is just a short walk from the town center but if you need sundries, food, or drinks, there are two supermarkets (Tengelmann and Norma) within 50 yards of the hotel. I am definitely planning to stay here again but not when it's really hot because there is no air conditioning.

    « Lovely in Garmisch!! »

    Had a newly refurbished room which was very nice. Breakfast was amazing! One where spoilt for choice. Good location with a five minute walk to the center of town. Nice bar! Great lawn with sun loungers and views of the surrounding mountains of Garmisch! Hotel staff very friendly and spoke perfect English. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again!

    « First Class Hotel »

    We had two rooms for two nights, excellent hotel accomodations. The view of the mountains from our rooms was fabulous, the first night it rained so we had dinner and drinks at the bar, the service was very good and friendly servers, one was very talkative. We saw the town and went to the top of the mountain the first day, we started early which was good, clouds moved in by 1:00 so the view in the morning to the top was clear. We purchased our passes at the hotel, thank goodness, the lines at the tram to buy tickets was quite long when we got there, thanks to the hotel staff insight.

    « Very Efficient »

    Had a nice room with a balcony, and the hotel was located well, very clean and comfortable. Stayed half board and the Evening meal was very wholesome and as we are just little people a bit big (Its 4 courses) although very pleasant and menu changed every evening thus introducing us to meals that we may had not considered. This was high dining. The hotel was very efficient with staff moving around at an amazing rate of speed, but slowly the smiley side came out. It was at this hotel that I was introduced to Sekt (German Champagne) which became my drink of choice whilst travelling through Germany. Good pool and I enjoyed the sauna and steam room on the first day, however on my second visit it was full off relaxed europeans without any clothes on - I retreated with my British angst. The gorge is worth a visit, however we paid 120 Euros to go up the mountain (Zugspitze) but unfortunately the cloud base was low and no views available. Still trying to decide whether it was worth it !

    « Very Good Hotel »

    We stayed at this hotel for one night and ate in the restaurant. The room was excellent and the general ambience was very good. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The dinner was well prepared and served. Breakfast was a buffet, but there was an excellent selection and I feel that it would cater for all tastes.

    « Best Breakfast »

    Very nice hotel; friendly staff and a good location with easy parking. This is the best breakfast buffet in Europe!! Including eggs, sausage and bacon! They also have a large indoor heated pool, and a sauna. We planned on spending one night here on our drive along the Alpine Road; but after doing Zugspitze (spectacular; but catch the first 8:45AM train to beat large crowds) and Fussen Castles, we returned to Garmisch for the night and next morning's breakfast. The first night we had a suite with a balcony; the second night a regular (much smaller) room, with a balcony. In retrospect, after stopping in Bad Tolz the next day, I would select this location for our stay (a hotel near Old Town). Many more streets for walking, touring, shopping...

    « weird experience »

    staying in this Hotel left us somewhat baffled... The Hotel wants to be a 4star and you can see that being the case when you speak to the very friendly staff or when you enjoy the really good breakfast or if you use the nice pool. But there were certain things which were just weird. We stayed in one of their studio rooms in the adjusted building. Room was as spacious as expected and had a nice balcony but bathroom looked dated with its brown tiles which reminded me somehow of 70s movies. The carpet looked old and was stained. Really not 4 star quality... Now the first issue: the room had a little kitchen area (fridge, cooking hobs and sink). Just the water didn't work in the sink. We were traveling with a baby and would have liked the water in the sink to work. The weird thing was that the receptionist didn't know what i was talking about when I told him. He had no clue that that room has this cooking facilities and it took a few moments until he understood what i meant. That was weird. I do speak German (native) so it was not a language thing. He might just have been a bit slow understanding. But anyway he assured me after a while that a technician will look into it. Unfortunately even after our departure two days later it was not fixed. But how weird that the staff don't know their rooms. Second thing: We arrived late, were hungry and wanted to use room service. We searched but could not find a room service menu. Actually we couldn't find any information on the Hotel. No book/folder or other kind of information about the Hotel, the Spa/pool, the surroundings, room service - nothing. The only thing we got was a folded check card size flyer where at least was written when breakfast times are. So after calling the front desk they told us there is no menus in the rooms but we can order from bar menu and he will guide us through the menu on the phone... ?? after asking if we could order from the restaurant menu (not bar menu) that request was denied but after a short discussion someone actually came to the room and brought up a restaurant menu. Wow. Now we had to call again and were put through to the kitchen or bar where some really bored and uninspired person took our order. Food was fine but way overpriced. The tray with the used dished was never cleaned away and stood there in the kitchen area until we departed two days later (really?)... But what is the story with not having any information on the hotel, spa, pool, restaurant aso. in the room? weird. third issue: heat. The room was just insanely hot. we were sweating and the baby didn't go to sleep. Telling the receptionist he said there will not be any technician to look at it (as it was evening time). Obviously we could turn down the heating ourselves in our room, which we did but some kind of underfloor heating still stayed on constantly. so warm i could feel the warm pipes through the floor. The receptionist tested the adjusted room and said it was fine. he offered another room but it was too late moving with all the stuff and the cranky baby. He said he will leave a note so the staff will look into it the next day. Unfortunately that message seems to got lost so we had to tell yet another person about the problem and what we can do. Now this different person didn't seem to know their rooms either as she had no clue if we could turn the heating down or not (which we had tried unsuccessfully already anyway. Just weird she didn't know). Anyway she assured us the technician will have a look during the day. Unfortunately we had to ask another two times which really tested my patience) until the technician came late late afternoon and fixed whatever was wrong. Weird. By the way it was so hot the first night that we couldn't sleep. For the rating of the sleeping experience: first night was terrible (no sleep due to heat) - second night was average, which makes it a poor overall sleeping experience. Now I am usually not a complaining person but for how much the Hotel charges for their rooms I did indeed expect a nice untroubled stay. Unfortunately there were some issues which just let the whole hotel and experience down. I would have made some suggestions at checkout but since that was a rather rushed affair and the lady did not even ask us if we enjoyed the stay (nor did we get an apology for the inconveniences at any stage really) I left it at that. So if I read other comments on how nice and modern their rooms were i cant say that for the studio. But the staff is definitely friendly but ineffective. Breakfast was great but the overall stay for that money was not good. Either they lower their prices massively or fix some things to justify those prices. But for us it was just a weird, overpriced experience.

    « Extremely helpful staff »

    We were there with a Group of nine family members of each age and everyone of us very much enjoyed the stay. The rooms, spa and Lounge bar seem to be brand new and are fashioned in a modern Alpine style. The helpfulness of the staff and the shuttle service are unique.

    « Great Hotel »

    Close enough to walk to downtown Garmisch, beautiful during Thanksgiving time when they have the Glu wiein stands up. This hotel had a great breakfast and the rooms give you the feeling of staying in a cabin, the balconies were great for views of the cute pond in the rear which was most beautiful covered in fresh snow. you can see the zugspitze from the balcony in some rooms.

    Our staying at the hotel was wonderful! The staff was friendly and helpful all times. The breakfast was wonderful: we could even make our own apple/carrot/celery fresh juice every morning!! Location was great, clean room, great facilities and swimming pool. I highly recommend!

    « Extremely good choice »

    Hotel was all that we expected. The wellness and pool were great, breakfast delicious, and what made a big difference was the shuttle service, which allowed us to get quickly and directly to skiing slopes and back. All this made it easy to have a perfect ski experience with maximum ski hours.

    « Highly recommended »

    My family and I stayed here for three nights for our ski week and couldn't have been happier with the service and the room. Our check-in was completed as we enjoyed welcome drinks (prosecco and hot chocolate). We found the staff to be unfailingly friendly and helpful with every question or request. We made use of the shuttle services frequently and found the driver knowledgeable, prompt and very accommodating. The service is the real highlight of a stay here although everything else was great too. The room (we stayed in a junior suite) was spacious and the pull-out sofa was comfortable and large enough for two to sleep easily. The view from the balcony was amazing. Breakfast was delicious. The pool isn't huge but it is warm. An additional bonus is the proximity to the grocery store (next door)- we had a few simple, self-catered meals as a result. We recommend without reservation and hope to return again ourselves.

    « Great visit »

    Central location, great staff, excellent food, lovely boutique room. The best thing about this hotel was the willingness of the staff to help, no matter what the query was. Facilities are excellent and the central location makes an easy walk into town.

    « Amazing views... and a really great shower »

    I have to start with the shower. It was walk-in, huge, rain shower and handheld shower heads... I need one in my own house. The rest of the room was very good, also. We had views of the mountains with a little balcony (complete with chairs and table), the room was very spacious and clean. The small bar felt intimate, and the front desk gave us a complimentary welcome drink token upon arrival. I hope to return someday in the summer.

    « Nice short stay »

    We found this hotel by chance when we arrived at Garmish on our Black Forest roadtrip in October 2015. Fortunately they had availability for my husband and I and we were accommodated into a nice double bedroom with a queen bed, good wifi and clean bathroom (although smallish). The hotel looks like a mountain lodge (not a typical US Best Western), is divided into two buildings, one of them is renovated, the other I guess is not (choose the renovated building if you can afford it). The property has a lovely garden, indoor pool and spa area. They offer two restaurants, one a la carte (we chose this one - dinner was very good, although service a little slow) and another with a fixed menu. Buffet breakfast was complete and well served. While not in the heart of downtown Garmish, this hotel is well-located and I understand there is a shuttle bus to shops in downtown. Complimentary parking is close by. It was a short visit, on a rainy evening, so we couldn't explore the hotel surroundings much. However, we enjoyed our stay!

    « No good / If you can do not go there! »

    Horrible experience. We thought we booked a large family room in a luxury hotel. At the check in we have been given a ugly dirty room, old damaged furniture, bathroom from the 70s - a 2 star hotel room in Germany is usually much better. I complained that I was ready to leave and I have been given a modern Junior Suite; a nice room but suitable for a couple rather than for a family. The room sofa was turned into a sort of bed, not a good one. The main bed was good instead. BUT: despite the embarrassing first assignment we have been asked a €500 overcharge for the change. General service and care to clients was poor: room cleaning was questionable, soaps not refilled, few towels. After 3 days in which the 5 of us were squeezed in the Junior Suite for 2, we decided to leave and we have been charged the staying for 7 days with a discount on the 3 nights not used by 20%. At the check out the hotel manager dared to ask a payment for the New Year Eve dinner we pre-reserved (with a non binding request) when we booked our "luxury" vacation; when I refused the manager first threatened me with some legal argument and then she gave up when I kindly suggested she could sue me but I was not going to pay that amount, never and ever. For the rest: the Hotel has been completely refurbished but the 3rd floor on the second building. Always avoid rooms in that floor. Refurbished rooms seem okay but small. Lifts are small and old and require long waiting. The half board restaurant is nice but cost over €50/head, the a la cart restaurant is very small and over-rated, prices are still high but more reasonable, service is just okay, you may wait 40 minutes for a dish. Nice pool, parking only outside, decent breakfast but again with poor service, not really customer focused. If you want to go to Garmisch and find another option, go for it I would also encourage TripAdvisor to challenge the Certificate of Excellence recently assigned. There must be a mistake.

    « Excellent Service »

    Stayed here when travelling with another couple around Germany. Cold water shower first morning but when told reception, they immediately moved us to a Junior Suite with the best views of the surrounding mountains. Made use of the shuttle bus to take us the short distance into town and a phone call for the return journey made the visit on a very rainy day enjoyable. Bed was extremely comfortable and facilities very modern and clean. Would stay here again.

    « A great, cosy hotel »

    After a long and cold day outside we were happy to arrive to Obermühle. The hotel is decorated as a typical bavarian style but the rooms and the wellness area are modern. The wellness are is great with different kinds of saunas (we are from Finland so we know what is good sauna ;)) and relaxing atmosphere. The staff was super friendly and the breakfast was very good. We loved to stay here and will definitely come again.

    « Very enjoyable »

    We stayed for one night in their boutique room. Very nicely redecorated: clean, modern, practical, espresso machine, great breakfast and very friendly staff throughout the hotel. We liked the modern on the inside, mixed with traditional touches in the reception area and outside. We would definitely select this hotel again for a next visit to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Location is perfect to walk to downtown as well.

    « A quick 2 night/3 day visit off peak (Nov 6,7,8, 2015) Room 127 »

    The first floor king suite was very clean and modern with a practical design. Plenty of wardrobe space, wood floors, big double glazed windows and large sliding door to balcony gave great views and natural light. I also liked the large shower with 2 different shower heads, rain head shower and standard adjustable. Nice small touches include: free wi-fi, well stocked mini bar and coffee machine with a selection of coffee packs, good bed linens, towels and soaps. STAFF = 10 out of 10! Really excellent, friendly staff - thank you! COURTESY SHUTTLE = 10 out of 10! A very handy,efficient and FREE service. FREE BREAKFAST BUFFET= 9 out of 10 - very tasty and wide selection of food!

    « Another great stay in Garmisch »

    We love the Obermuehle for location, staff friendliness and the breakfast. While we aren't crazy about some of the modernization which has taken place as far as room atmosphere - we liked the old Bavarian look better - we will continue to choose the BW Obermuehle whenever we travel to Garmisch and always recommend it to friends.

    During this two month vacation we stayed at 14 hotels in 3 countries, including 3 Best Western properties. Without a doubt this is the worst hotel we stayed in while in Europe. Wifi 4.2 down but only .80 mbps up too slow for internet and skype to function for outgoing calls. We booked an economy room #209 , with old furniture plywood cabinets and the furniture was in very poor condition. When my wife tried to open the closet door it fell on her as the track was no longer screwed into the plywood frame. See attached photo. The corner rotunda was filled with large table making space unusable. The Mattresses sagged in middle and needed to be replaced. The room required a deep cleaning and the curtains were soiled from use and age. Bathroom was small old and in bad shape needs update. No wash cloths. Tub shower was previously broken and handles were partially removed and replaced with cheep external faucet and hose connection to save on plumbing cost. Old black rubber drain stopper was provided for tub as original obviously broke and had been removed. Plumbing was not pressured balanced and continually switched from hot to cold. Good breakfast but the dinner was over priced at 29e so we ate down town. Parking area not large enough to accommodate all guest and we were forced to find a spot on the street away from the hotel. We paid 109e per night and were way over charged for based on quality this was a 40e room. They did not show us the room in advance, and we could not cancel as the hotel has a 4 day cancelation policy. We were told a renovation is scheduled for November but we will not be back to this hotel. Had the hotel disclosed how bad the rooms were we would have stayed right down the street at the 4 star Hotel Rheinischer Hof. which had better facilities, spa and pool and was only 115e per night or 6 euros more per night that we paid to sleep in a dump. Don't get taken like we did. Keep on Driving!!!!

    « Expected a little more »

    We expected a bit better accommodation, since it was below standard to the required considering the rating of the hotel. Overall not a very positive experience, and was expecting more out of our night in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Do not recommend for long stay, perhaps for a night or two only.
