    Rooms are extremely dated, probably last renovated in the 1970s. Restaurant stopped serving food at 8pm - on a Saturday night in the height of summer! Was very expensive for what you get. Only stayed here for the location.

    Fantastic location on the lake.

    We take our parents to the hotel and they need hot water to drink very badly.There are no electric kettles in the room,so we went to the reception for help.The staff said we had to pay for the hot water,0.5 EUR per pot.Never met this before.But when we went to the reception to buy hot water in the evening,we are told that there are no hot water any more because it was too late.I beg the staff to help us,but she always said that she can not help. I know they have a dining room with machine to boil water.I feel very disappointed.Then I went to another hotel just opposite this one,and beg the reception to give me some hot water.And without hesitate that staff give me two pots of hot water,FOR FREE!And story did not end.In the next morning,when we have breakfast,we got some hot water with our own pot from the dining room as we did in other hotels,the staff stopped us!And after breakfast my father take his own pot to go out of the dining room, someone stopped him!!!We are so angry cos you are not a police and have no right to stop anyone leaving your dining room!Will never come back to such rude hotel any more!

    No a/c in the heatwave.

    Lovely rustic, clean hotel with very friendly staff. The rooms have everything you need and the breakfast is very good. The selling point for this hotel is the location. It lies directly on the shore of the Koenigsee. Eating your evening meal or enjoying a drink in the beer garden of an evening is bliss. We stayed 5 nights but could easily have stayed 5 more.

    I would suggest staying elsewhere and pay for parking in the main car park. Would avoid.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Double Room with Balcony
    • Stayed 1 night

    Parking was very confusing with little to no help from the staff as to where to park, the car park located behind the hotel belongs to a different hotel which we were not made aware of till our car was locked in the car park. Booked a room with a balcony to find the view from the balcony was a solid wall of the opposite building less than a few meters away, something the photos on booking.com did not reflect. Konigsee lake was visible if you were over 6 foot and leaned over the railing and strained your neck looking to the right and then only a small slither was viewable.

    The location of the hotel is perfect for an overnight stay to get the cruise the following morning. Walks around the lake in the evening after all the tourists have left are highly enjoyable. Breakfast was very nice with a good selection of choice.

    so disappointed, we book room since Jan. and stay in May just want to be sure to get the right one. The picture and the room is different. Be careful of that. The staff said lake view no way sell in Booking,com So who is lier booking or hotel?

    Everything except we don't get the room as picture shown in booking!

    Breakfast did not measure up to other Lakeside venues where we have stayed.

    Staff were particularly helpful and friendly. We would gladly return.
