Wittelsbacher Hof Swiss Quality Hotel
Reviewed 2 November 2008

I was here with a group and those of us with renovated rooms liked this hotel a lot better than the people with the small broom closets that pass for rooms in the old section.
The renovated room had a nice bathrobe in the room, a fridge , decent TV channels and a very good sized bathroom. Pool is heated but small. Steam room/sauna is co-ed, so be prepared for nude guests of either sex to join you. Location is good except for the construction on the street. Internet is pricy at Euro 4 for 30 minutes and every hotel that charges userous internet rates will get a bad review from me as far as business facilities go. Dinner was excellent and dining room looks lovely.

We stayed here 5 nights while in Garmisch for business and pleasure. I've wrangled over what I thought of it.

The location is excellent for browsing in central Garmisch, though there's currently construction down the street, making Von Brug strasse busy, dangerous and loud. That is a situation which will be resolved over the next months, though.

So,what's the problem? We had a lovely view and paid considerably more for a "larger" room. This, however, doesn't feel like a 4 star hotel. The attention to detail is lacking. It seems to not know what it wants to be and how it wants to be decorated. It's not Bavarian themed, but it's not Victorian, while kind of being both. The room decor is quite plain and unattractive, something you'd find in any decent 2-star. The walls are scarred and with running paint, look like an amateur painted them. The hotel needs a renovation to upgrade the elevator, room decor, pool area and all the interior common areas, including the steps to the spa area. It appears little attention has been paid for some years now. It's just fair with potential.

That said, the restaurant was great. The atmosphere was "old folks home", but the food was delicious. The breakfast was decent and it was nice to have freshly cooked eggs to order. The wait staff in the restaurant, dinner and breakfast, was wonderful and professional. The hotel staff was helpful, though a bit perfunctory. The beds were decent with cleaning done nicely each day. There's a small refrigerator and a very small sitting area. As a note, bring your own hairdryer.

Well, that's it. With so many other decent hotels and guest rooms in the Garmisch area, I probably wouldn't stay here again.

My friends and I lucked out by receiving a suite. We were with a school group and rooms were given out at random, and we got the lucky straw! The room had a nice balcony with a good view of the mountains and a large bathroom. It had a nice corner booth with a card table and plenty of floor space. The hotel is located right next to a stream and there are a wealth of convenient stores just down the street. A food market, pharmacy, and video store are a block away, as well as a nice bakery. The hotel has an upscale atmosphere, with a beautiful dining room and lounge. Also, keep a lookout for the pool and spas. Though there was plenty of snow on the ground, it looked like there was a nice garden.

We stayed here one night and liked the hotel. Its a four star hotel; the rooms are large and have a small balcony. They have a good swimming pool (indoor), tanning bed, and jacuzzi. Good breakfast. The views from the rooms are great; the Alps. Its an impressive view. You can walk from the hotel to the downtown area to do some shopping.

Our experience with the hotel was a very good one. Location is convenient to the downtown pedestrian zone as well as the main train station. Free parking for guests was also a plus, compared to other hotels.

Hotel was well-maintained. Breakfast and other meals were good and included a variety of cuisines beyond Bavarian. Service from the staff was excellent.

Although the hotel does not have air conditioning in the room, our room was quite comfortable due to the breeze provided by the river next to the hotel. Room size was quite comfortable for two adults (had corner room with a nice view of the Zugspitz).

Would definitely stay there again and recommend to other visitors.

Stayed here for a last-minute long weekend skiing in March 2006. Bedrooms were a little bit old fashioned, but spacious, and clean, and perfectly functional for our small group of 30-something guys without the wives. Didn't dine in the Hotel Restaurant in the evenings as it was a a bit formal for us and not very busy, prefering the varied eat-out options in Garmisch-P. Buffet breakfast (included) was good.

Reception staff we exceptionally helpful with all our requests for advice on:-
-Where to access pistes
-Where to rent Ski gear
-Restaurant and Bar recommendations and directions
-General navigation around the town
-Taxi ordering
-Piste-cam images and weather information

...and all very polite, in German or fluent English, whichever you prefer.

Would I come back to Garmisch-P and stay here? For a similar short break, absolutely.

We enjoyed our 2 nights stay at this hotel whilst on a quik skiing trip to Garmisch.

Room was bright, well kitted out and clean and the staff were attentive and helpful throughout.

The sauna/Steam room and pool deserve special mention as it is obvious that much effort went into their planning and construction.

Evening meals were well presented and the pricing was appropriate.

I would stay here again if I returned to GP.
