Hotel Askania
Ranked #24 of 28 Hotels in Braunlage
Reviewed 25 September 2013

This hotel has a nice old-world feel to it. No frills or fancy restaurant on site but there are plenty of places a short walk away. Our room was spacious and clean and the staff was polite and helpful. We were there in August 2013 and the town was very quiet as it's mostly a ski area.

Reviewed 10 June 2010

Have stayed here twice in last 3 years for skiing. Great location as it is yomping distance from Wurmberg cablecar with skis, so don't need to drive. Some parking is available that is dug out during snow. This is a very old hotel - very dated and not refurbished for many decades. However, it is comfortable enough and very competatively priced for the location. This is not a romantic hotel but it is good as a base for skiing and has a strange sort of appeal that I can't quite put my finger on.

We have stayed in a number of hotels in this region over the last 5 years and found that more costly hotels also favour a 1950/60/70's decor. It is not stylish and the fittings are old and basic. The heating is comfortable, warm and controllable. Showers are hot and towels, although not fluffy are plentiful. No bath (buth this is not uncommon in this region & price bracket). Beds are big and comfortable. Family room we had on one occasion was very big but doubles a little small. Breakfast is good but not exceptional.

Front desk is often not manned and on check out be ready to pay with cash as UK cards are often not accepted. Front door key entry after certain time of night.

Located in the high street within walking distance of main bars/restuarants. There is not alot of apres ski in Braunlage after 10pm. Most restuarants are done and dusted by 9pm. But after a day skiing with children and grandparents, who's got the energy to party?! Popular italian restuarant just down the road manages to cater for most of our parties needs and the chineese does a superb buffet for about 9euros per head. We had a nice meal in the hotel restuarant which was typically german.

It suits us - we go as a large party and prefer to spend our pennies on gluewine and bratties than accomodation to sleep in. There are few other hotels in this location that are as cheap. Don't use it if you want luxury and style.

We stayed here between Xmas and New Year, mainly because it was the only hotel in town available at a sensible price at that time. A pleasant surprise--old fashioned (a bit clunky and tiny rooms) but not run down and the usual excellent German breakfast and a friendly atmosphere. Centrally located on more or less the main intersection of Braunlage.
