Situated in a lakeside village some five miles from Fussen the Hotel Geiger is a small, comfortable and welcoming hotel that offers a fantastic view over the lake towards the Bavarian Alps. We booked a "Logen Zimmer mit ausblick" which was one of their pricier rooms but the extra was worth paying. The room was large and very clean. There was a separate sitting area with sofa and a balcony with two sunchairs. We also had a large bathroom (with shower but no bath tub).
Throughout the whole of our stay in Bavaria and Austria this was the only hotel where we were shown up to our room.
There is a small car-park at the side of the hotel but this fills up very quickly. Parking is also available opposite the hotel but between 10.00 and 18.00 you may be restricted to two hours parking (best to check with the reception desk). However, we spent each day exploring the area as there is lots to see and do (a car is essential, though) so parking was not a problem.
Breakfast offered a stereotypical German selection of different breads, cold meats, cheeses, scrambled eggs, very well done streaky bacon etc. etc. If there was one niggle the breakfast staff were not the fastest off the mark in replenishing items when they had run out.
We chose to eat in the hotel on the first night and enjoyed a typical Bavarian menu which was well cooked and presented. There is a good range of wines, beers and other drinks which were all reasonably priced. Indeed we decided to eat in the hotel for the other two nights of our stay and felt we received very good value for the price they charged. I understand they also offer a dinner, bed and breakfast option using a 'table d'hote' menu but we were more than satisfied with their 'a la carte' offering. Hopfen, though, does have a number of other hotels and restaurants if you prefer to eat elsewhere.
This is a small provincial 3 / 4 star hotel but it does have a small sauna / spa area (which we didn't use). If you are looking for the slickness of a large, city based establishment you may be somewhat disappointed but if you want friendly, obliging staff and a feeling of personal service then you should be satisfied.
