Nice value hotel located at great place for hiking, ski and relax, but you have to take taxi to get downtown. We'd recommend this hotel mainly for families with children. Service is above-average quality. Small sauna a children playroom in hotel. Cuisine is fine, but nothing special. Wireless internet available. Worthy to visit.
I spent 4 nights in this hotel with my spouse. The hotel could be described as post-communist, but completely renewed. Receptionist was kind, helpful and professional. Parking without any problems.
The room (double bed) was tiny, clean, comfortable but let's say not much cute. Common equipment of the room, standardized furniture - nothing special, more functional. Hair-dryer missing. Chambermaid and room cleanliness acceptable, just few minor complaints.
Cuisine was mainly OK. I'd personally expect more fresh or "fit" meals. You can see the fingerprint of communist on the restaurant - I felt sometimes like on basic school dining-hall. Tea, terrible cofee and some artificial juice for the breakfast. It was tough job to get some still water for the breakfast. People with diabetes should find another place to stay [jokingly]. Overall rating - meals average, drinks bellow average, restaurant service average.
Hotel is situated above the village - this means you have to take taxi to get downtown (walking in the night with no light on icy road is not a good idea, taxi costs approx. 5-7 euro). Wellness center is located in nearby hotel, but again - 800m on icy road and in the dark (problem in winter, might be nice walk in summer). Great place for ski - several ski area around. We went to Arber for ski everyday (www.arber.de) - approx. 20 mins by car. Local ski areas are altough fine - personally recommend Spicak area (approx. 5 mins by car). Probably good base camp for hiking in summer.
As mentioned above - wellness services are located in nearby hotel. So if you expect to ski during day and then wellness in the evening then you have to face the problem how to get there (as mentioned above). There's a small sauna in the hotel - we enjoyed that. There's some hotel playroom for childrem too. There's some public bath resort (Silberberg) in nearby village called Bodenmais - quite fine, we'd recommend - worth to visit, but be aware of some events there (like "Wassergymnastik").
There's wireless internet at the hotel. There's average signal at the room (2nd floor), but guaranteed availability just at lobby and restaurant.
