Wittelsbacher Hof Swiss Quality Hotel
Reviewed 29 September 2017

We booked our stay through American Express Travel, believing we were getting a room at a four star property; I was disappointed as soon as we arrived. In spite of very dated decor, the hotel has great unrealized potential primarily due to its great location. It's an older building, but could be easily improved with a deep cleaning, and updating of the mauve and teal furnishings and carpets that appear to date form the 1980s. Unfortunately, I would agree with some of the other reviews posted here that the less than friendly staff does a poor job making up for the property's shortcomings. Our major complaint though, was with the excessive heat in our room. The hotel's hot water system is used to heat the floors and towel warmer in the bathrooms, but there is no thermostatic control, so its always on. Our room was easily 90 degrees F or more when we checked in. When I asked the grumpy night manager what could be done, He said, "nothing, its always that way; open a window." Eventually, we negotiated a fan, but the room never cooled to below 80 degrees. It was really quite miserable sleeping. We stayed two nights, and moved on. This is a four star property by definition of amenities perhaps, but is definitely not what one would expect from that designation or price point. Simply put: Spend you money elsewhere.

I had planned for a weekend but left early after my first night. The room was noisy and hot as there are no fans for summer heat. The staff was not nice. The wellness/spa is only open 4 1/2 hrs a day and is quite small. 3 people fit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at this hotel. We found both the front desk staff and the breakfast staff to be very professional and helpful. It was hot in Bavaria during our visit. We requested fans for our 3 rooms, but the caretaker had already left for the night. However, they did manage to find one fan for our pregnant daughter's room, and the next day had fans in all of our rooms. The front desk was great with recommendations and informed us of the upcoming parade and beer fest. The rooms were nice and the balcony was enjoyable. We also enjoyed the breakfast with all the different jams and the made to order eggs. Free parking was available but a little scarce at times. Heartily recommend this hotel.

This hotel does not deserve four starts at all. Maybe it had some quality in the past but definitely not any more. The rooms are outdated and they do not care about the cleaning at all. The breakfast is OK, rather poor. The strangest think out this place are the employees. It needs a special talent to put so many weird and rude people in one place. If you want to enjoy Garmisch Partenkirchen, avoid this place where the guests are the nuisance for the staff.

Ample parking, great location, easy walk to shopping, Great staff, Super Breakfast. Views are ok, outside eating is super if desired, Balcony outside rooms great for morning coffee, large tubs in bath.

Room Tip: Rooms away from front are off the main street. No noise on side street or little river end.
