“It has to improve a lot to become reasonable!”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

Bad experience at the Gasthof zum Rassen, in spite of several efforts of the lady at the front desk. Food in the hotel restaurant was terrible . Hotel was not prepared to our arrival, in spite of the reservation. No towels, no soap in the bathroom and room dirty. Breakfast was a little better. They charged extra to pay with credit card, in spite of no clear previous warning. The city is very interesting to be visited, but not sleeping at the Rassen Gasthof. Loof for another hotel!

During our recent visit in Garmish Partenkirchen in Germany, we made use of the services offered by Zum Rassen Hotel. This was our 2nd time that we could enjoy the services of this hotel because in summer of 2011 we had already spent around 18 days there.

Again we can say that we were most satisfied. The hotel is situated very centrally in the most romantic street of Partenkirchen. It is a few minutes walk from all the major attractions of the area such as the Olympic Ski Jump and the cogwheel train that takes you to the Zugspitze mountain, while there is no parking problem near the hotel - there is also a free parking very near to the hotel. Also the hotel is very tidy while the buffet breakfast you have a very wide choice of fresh items which surely meet the tastes of everyone. Needless to say that the breakfast is very abundant as is also the dinner.

Above all, the Zum Rassen management and employees are always most friendly and ready to give that personal attention which makes you always feel welcome. Indeed at Zum Rassen the Bavarian hospitality is at its best and as soon as your holiday is over you begin planning to return there once again. Indeed, we highly recommend Zum Rassen hotel for your holiday in Bavaria

This hotel was a last minute booking over New Years in Garmisch. We had read multiple terrible reviews by previous guests, but we didn't have much of a choice. Germans aren't exactly known for customer service, but this was an entirely new level of hostility and rudeness.

We were four adults and we rented the apartment on the top floor. We arrived at 7 pm and walked through the restaurant in order to check in. There was nothing to indicate where to checkin. The hotel seems like an afterthought. For 15 minutes we stood there without even someone acknowledging our presence. There were four others also waiting to be helped. The waiters kept saying, "I dont do reservations." And, we were told that the owner wouldn't be there for another hour. They only gave us one key and said that's all they had. We later were able to get another. They also had not written down which room we had reserved and tried to put us in a smaller room. We had reserved the largest room in the hotel. I'm still not positive that they didn't give it to someone else.

The owner never showed his face, despite asking to talk with him. At least once, if not more, each day he would send his staff to ask if we could pay. Our card was on file and we said that we would pay at checkout. If we decided to leave early because of the terrible service, we didn't want to pay more than we needed. Plus, they had our information and at checkin they said we could pay at checkout. Finally, on the third morning we were stopped at the bottom of the stairs and told that the boss needed payment NOW, and that we could NOT pay at checkout.

In addition to everything else, the hotel is next to a church which has loud bells that start at 6 am. The rooms doesn't have an iron, hair dryer, soap, cups, phone, or anything else that normal rooms would have.

AVOID!

We can say straight forward that the Hotel Zum Rassen met all our expectations. It is close to all amenities and very centrally positioned -also favourable location to visit nice and interesting places in Germany as well as in Austria which is very near as well. First we think that it is of a very good value for money. Our room which also had an excellent view of Zugspitz mountain, was big and always well cleaned. The breakfast is most varied and also abundant. Although we were on Bed and Breakfast basis, whenever in the evening we made use of the hotel's restaurant, which is kept open until late, the food was very good and again, of a good value for money. Regarding all the staff and the hotel director, we can say only good words and they are all most keen to make you welcome and give you that most appreciated personal attention.
Also, just behind the hotel there is a public parking which one can make use of by paying a small daily fee. However, we never made use of it because we always managed to park in the nearby streets even though it was August which is the peak month of tourists in summer.
In a few words, our stay at Gasthof zum Rassen was an excellent one and we undoubtedly are in a position to recommend anybody staying at Garmish Partenkirchen to book his accomodation in this hotel.

Room Tip: Try to book a room with a breathtaking view of the Zugspitze mountain.

Loved our visit to this beautiful location - very friendly staff and excellent food! Easy walking distance to the surrounding areas. Needed a hair dryer and the staff was ready to accommodate. Internet not readily available.

From booking our holiday to our departure we were made to feel wanted and appreciated. The whole experience of a traditional German Gasthof and the culinary specialties they provided was an enjoyable memorable experience. The staff had excellent local knowledge and were able to give advice on our itinerary and local interest areas.
We will most certainly be returning to Gasthof Zum Rassen.

I stumbled upon Gasthof zum Rassen by chance, trying to find a room when town was completely packed. It's a wonderful old (650+ years) building with modern, spacious rooms. Most of all, though, it's in a charming location on Ludwigstrasse in Partenkirchen.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a reasonably large little city with many hotels in bustling commercial areas. Ludwigstrasse is very convenient (10 minute to bahnhof) and a pleasant, quiet change from being on a major street.

My room was large and spacious - extremely functional - with very basic decoration. Beds were great and it's super, super quiet with large, thick walls.

The restaurant was great. The breakfast buffet was voluminous and very good. The restaurant is very popular for dinner.

I especially enjoyed meeting and talking with the owner Herr Ecker about the history of the building and the area.

FYI, theoretically they do have Internet but I was not able to get online. Do check that if it's important to you.

Enjoy.
