    I would just like to request that users of the sauna and not allowed to reserve the few recliners in the relaxing area with their towels while they are in the sauna

    The hotel is beautifully located (great if you get a room facing the mountain). The staff were very friendly - although service in the restaurant was a little slow on a Saturday night and the breakfast waitress on Sunday morning may have got out of the wrong side of the bed!

    Bed was top notch.

    While I appreciate the multiple lights in the room.. the main switch on each side of the bed was quite confusing. It is so small you really do have to push every button once or twice to figure out which button is for which light. The writing is so small..not sure which button is which light until you push it. I never could get the light at my nightstand on! The coffee maker is too complicated to work... when I turned mine on it shook the entire desk and made a noise like a jet engine. I gave up. It may have been mine was not working ..not sure? I am an interior decorator and so I'm a little picky about some things. The sink in the bathroom was large enough to bathe a baby in.. no room left on the sides of the sink for toiletries. The chairs in the room by the desk are too small in general.. elegant and lovely but too small for most people to enjoy sitting in.

    Bed was top notch. Staff is always top notch. Have stayed here numerous times. Elegant and refined luxury! The server at breakfast has been there for years and she is wonderful. Kind and welcoming every morning!! Desk staff.. just the best!

    The wellness center i thought could have had more imforation availble. There was a price listing for treatments but i found out too late you need to schedule any services well in advance.

    incredible feel from the moment you enter. Friendly staff and immaculate facilities. The restaurant is one of the best in the city, Bavarian salad, and Weinerschnitzel were my favorite. The in-house brewery is fantastic, Maxbrau is one of the best beers on site.

    A short list but it although we didn't use the minibar much, it was odd that it wasn't restocked over a 4 night stay. And one of the bar staff did give off an unwelcoming vibe (just the right side of actually being rude). Minor criticism, it's a lovely place.

    We were here off-season. Hotel was lovely and location great, particularly when you have a car and can travel on your own steam. Staff were nearly all lovely and the beer and food were terrific.

    A very comfortable stay, en route between The Netherlands and Italy. Great surroundings with a lot to see and expericence outside the city itself. The hotel is a calm place in the (by day) busy small town of Oberammergau. In the hotel you lose the feeling of being in a tourist trap. In the evening you can sniff the fresh mountain air from your balcony and experience the true alpine feeling.

    Best hotel I have stayed in so far.
    • Business trip
    • Solo traveller
    • Comfort Double Room
    • Stayed 12 nights

    Wifi was spotty at times. I think this was due to the fact that the top floor may be a little outside the range of whatever router they are using. Also, for tax purposes I think, they itemize the included breakfast separately from the rest of the hotel accommodation charges. VAT rates are different for food and accommodation. If you are traveling for business like I was, then it is sometimes difficult to get food covered if it looks like a separate expense. Depending on your business policy you may have to come out of pocket for the "included" breakfast - even though there is no option to NOT take breakfast.

    The staff upgraded me for free and I stayed in their best suite on the top floor. Excellent views of the mountains. Bathroom was phenomenal and the room was very spacious. Very clean, upscale hotel with awesome food. It was also located near quaint restaurants and some really pretty shopping areas. Parking on site was convenient since there isn't much room for parking anywhere else in town. You cannot beat the location.

    Restaurant stops serving at 9.30pm, but I feel this might be a local thing rather than anything to do with the hotel.

    We stayed in Hotel Maximilian for 6 nights and had a wonderful, relaxing holiday. We were two families with teenagers and had an excellent time. The rooms are very comfortable, spacious and well designed. One of our rooms was 303, the large suite at the top, and we loved the balcony with views of the snowy mountains and the best view of New Year's Eve fireworks. This suite was a delight, with separate sitting area, plenty of wardrobe space, super comfortable bed and bed linens, two large flat screen tvs and luxurious spacious bathroom, an absolute treat! The breakfast is very good, especially the cappuccinos and the cooked egg and sausage choices. The local breads and pastries are great. The food for lunch and dinner is definitely the best in the town and we enjoyed eating here. We were in easy walking distance of everything in charming Oberammergau. Martin at the front desk was warm, welcoming and super helpful, with perfect english and a big smile he is an asset to this hotel! We are talking about returning in the summer to try the downhill toboggan roller coaster thing and enjoy the mountains in sunshine. Great trip.
