Explorer Hotel Berchtesgaden, Schoenau am Koenigssee
No A/C, No Hot water but beautiful view
A hotel without A/C which you have to open your window to get fresh air and let the cold air in. Bugs just keep flying in since this place surrounded by greens and mountain. It is a very very basic facility, Beautiful view. No water boiler to borrow, if you want hot water, pay 2.40 euro (as i remember) in the coffee machine to get a small cups of hot water, the stuff really didn't try to help with this matter. Breakfast area is hot with no A/C (at least I didn't feel it at all). Not enough parking space even we pay for it, we can only park on the grass.

Wonderful hotel!
This is a wonderful hotel in the Bavarian Alps close to Berchtesgaden. It is a fairly new property so everything is nice and fresh. The rooms are a little on the small side, but the bed was very comfortable, had a nice TV with plenty of international channels. The room and bathroom were very clean. Breakfast was ample and very tasty. I can definitely recommend this hotel and will stay there again when I come back to the area.

Good and bad
The location is about 4 km out of the central area, so getting something to eat is a drive. However, as a kicking off point for outdoor activities, this is probably the best location. Breakfast buffet was good. Room was pretty good, but the balconies sort of all connect and loud next room neighbors were out on their balcony until wee hours. Unfortunately, we left an electronic device in the room; called about it and have never heard back. Some of the staff could be more friendly and helpful. Overall, thought it was a little pricey for what you get.

A cool hotel in the Berchtesgaden region
A very funky hotel geared to people looking to hike, bike, and ski the Berchtesgaden area. While the room was a little sparse, the service and amenities made up for it. And then of course there is the fabulous views in all directions. Breakfast was fantastic and the hotel is centrally located between the town and the Koenigssee.
