Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We stayed four nights at the Alte Post. It is a comfortable hotel right in the centre of Oberammergau. We had a lovely room overlooking the street. Double-glazing ensured that there was very little noise and the facilities in the room were good? The free to guests WiFi worked reasonably well although there were areas not covered. Was there anything we didn't like? We felt that the staff, especially on reception, could have been more friendly. The issue with this particular hotel is that there is no designated bar/lounge area, so that get-togethers after meals, for instance, meant going out.

Stayed: February 2014, travelled as a couple

My husband first stayed here 30 years ago, we stayed here 16 years ago and thus knew exactly where to stay this trip. We were very happy to see it was still as quaint and friendly Our room was perfect. Breakfast was awesome as was the homemade apple strudel. Only disappointment was they no longer had Chateau Breaund on the menu.

I booked the hotel Alte Post about 5 months prior to arriving but had seen the hotel many times visiting Oberammergau the past 20 years. I have stayed at other hotels around the town center but the rooms (2) my family and I had (front overview of town center) were much larger than the typical hotels in the area. The rooms were very clean and maintained during our 4 night stay. The breakfast was very good and the front desk reception was excellent. We will return to the hotel Alte Post.

Room Tip: The front rooms are somewhat larger.

This hotel is in the heart of Oberammergau. It is truly Bavarian. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is delicious. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Also, recommend visiting the Passion Play Theater. I saw the play in 2010, and it will be done again in 2020. I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the front of the hotel

We had traveled from a cheaper area and had been camping so 95€ seemed a shock but comparing against what we sampled later this Hotel is excellent value in a superb position in a top tourist destination so the price was reasonable. Your bang in the center of Oberammergau and to get up and walk to the church at 7,30 before the tourists arrive with the cinnamon smell of the bakeries wafting in the streets was magical.The staff are helpful and friendly, and though they don`t make a big play of it, they will cook sausage, bacon and eggs to order for you. First rate. One gripe, stop charging for WiFi

This is a charming little hotel in an excellent location. Why the terrible rating? The staff! We were with a tour (45 people) and my thought was they just didn't know how to accommodate that many people. We were referred to as "The Americans" with rude wait staff at the front desk, and in the dinning room. First night we asked if there was room service - said yes, and brought coffee up. (This young man was the ONLY helpful person working). Second night, asked if we could have room service - told no but wouldn't serve us in restaurant either. Finally, the waiter brought us 4 cups of coffee to the tune of 25 Euros - translates to $10.00 per cup - and brought to us in disgust.
Because we were such a large group we ordered from a preset menu for dinner on day two. I ordered chicken. Waiters kept passing me, I would indicate chicken, but was never served. Had to speak to tour guide, was told no more chicken. Ok, so I had over done schnitzel. I had ordered chocolate mousse for dessert. Waiter put in front of me, then took it away. When I asked for my chocolate dessert was told there was no more left. AVOID this hotel if you are in a large group!!!

Room Tip: Each room is different. Ask if they will show you the room before you agree to stay.
