My wife and I stayed here for two nights. We had a second floor suite with a terrace. It was in a separate building from the main part of the hotel where the bar, restaurant, and check in are located. The distance between the two buildings was perhaps 50 feet.
The staff were friendly and accommodating. We had dinner two times, and the dinners were very good. Specials are offered daily along with the regular menu. We even had a table with a name card on it to identify that it was our table. Prices for wine, water, salad bar, and main courses were reasonable. The included buffet breakfast was very good with some different items the two mornings to go with the standard fare, e.g., eggs, etc. Again, the name card on the table identified us.
Our room appeared to be recently renovated. WiFI was good with no restrictions on the number of devices. Unlike some rooms in some hotels, we had plenty of electric outlets needed for charging phones, tablet, camera batteries, etc. Of course, the view from our room was superb with the mountains visible in every direction we could look. The main part of the suite had two comfortable easy chairs and a sofa along with a wall-mounted TV. There was also a TV in the bedroom.
Frankly, we were surprised by some of the less positive reviews found on TA. We certainly found no reason to provide anything but a five star rating. Oberstdorf itself is a small town, popular with Germans and Swiss; we were told that not that many Americans visit here, which is popular with skiers in winter and people wanting a very comfortable small Bavarian town at other times. The Nebelhorn is something to behold with the highest point more than 7,500 feet high - truly a site to behold and well worth the three cable cars needed to reach the top. Finally, when we checked out, the Hotel had a shuttle that took us to the train station at no cost.
When we return to Oberstdorf, we will definitely stay at Hotel Filser again.
