I was apprehensive reading some of the reviews on this Gasthof but decided to chance it anyway, as we would only be staying 1 night, needing only a place to sleep and would spend most of our time outside of it. First impression upon arrival was not too good - we were kept waiting whilst the owner talked on the phone for ages! However, once he attended to us, he was nice and accommodating. We had arrived early, so we were allowed to leave our bags in the theatre (yes, there was some hall which looked like a theatre on the ground floor of this guesthouse) until we returned in the evening, after our trip to Zugspitze.
Overall, this guesthouse was charming (see photos and you'll see what I mean!), rooms were spacious and prices were really reasonable. Our taxi was booked to pick us up at 7:15am on our day of departure - although breakfast was usually from 7am onwards, that morning they made the extra effort to serve breakfast half an hour earlier, just for our group! We really appreciated that! The owner even gave us 2 of their house mugs as souvenirs! What a change - was this the same man who ignored us yesterday while he spoke on the phone for ages??
Minor shortcomings (reason why I'm only rating them 4*) are : (1) The initially not-so-welcome reception upon our arrival; (2) Rooms were a bit bare (though clean); (3) Bathrooms were even more bare (but tolerable, even in winter.)
Location along Ludwigstrasse is great - lots of shops and we walked to Gasthof Fraundorfer down the street, in the evening for dinner and Bavarian folk music and dance.
