10/10 Exceptional

Very unique hotel with a hip and modern vibe. If you do skiing or biking, you will likely find this hotel very useful because there are many amenities for sports that I have not seen in other hotels, such as gear lockers and a workbench for repairs. The hotel is clean and the basic double room was of a good size. We always travel with our dog, so we were glad that he could stay with us. Parking was easy, and available both underground and open-air. The breakfast was adequate. There was a self-service egg counter. While it is in a peaceful location, it is of walking distance to the lake. The price was also quite good for the region. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for an enjoyable and comfortable stay.

Walking distance to Königssee
More like Ibis hotel which is in favor of local outside sports fan. Better to drive your own car can here you will enjoy the beautiful view and quiet suburb life. But if for casual tourists traveling with family, it’s also can be decided to choose hotel in Berchtesgadener, where is more convenient for shopping stuff.
