This is a GREAT HOTEL. The experience here is very personal (staff is very friendly and helpful) and the attention to detail is impeccable. We stayed in a standard room which was the smallest option. The room had a balcony with a beautiful view of the mountains. Check-in was a breeze. In the room, we found fresh fruit and luxuriously soft robes. The bathroom is a perfect example of where they pay attention to detail. I give a lot of weight to my bathroom experience when rating a hotel. At the Alpenhof Murnau you'll find a new but cozy bathroom with a basket filled with spa toiletries and a towel warmer...LOVED IT. The food is wonderful (even for those with less adventurous taste buds), you're a 15-30 minutes drive to the various ski locations, and the spa is RELAXING and SERENE. This isn't a large "impersonal" hotel. This is a luxurious small hotel experience and I can't recommend it enough! We would describe ourselves as frequent travelers and opt for luxury accommodations.
This small hotel is an absolute gem and three stars doesn't really mean anything, other than the star ratings are not really designed to deal with small boutique hotels not in a big city. Hotel Arnika is fabulous and I hesitate to tell you all about it since I want it to remain just as it is. This spotless, bright, and airy hotel - maybe 30 rooms total - sits in the Ammer valley in the Bavarian Alps with a million-dollar view of some of the most beautiful mountains in Europe. The owner is a an accomplished chef, so the small - maybe seats 50 people - reataurant punches way above its weight in quality, originality and selection. I highly recommend staying over on a Wednesday for their fabled Schnitzeltag, when they have 25 kinds of schnitzel on the menu. It's also an easy walk into Oberammergau and there is one of the best schwimbads in Germany about 3 mins up the road. For Americans - these are wildly elaborate swimming complexes throughout Germany. This one has six various pools and two big indoor tube slides. Ridiculously cheap and a great way to wear out the kids for a day. The only downside to city cave dwellers may be that when the breeze comes off the mountains, you can smell the neighbrs - goats and milk cows. This is a place not to be missed in an idyllic setting.
