"Excellent hotel: v helpful staff, nice breakfast!"
Slightly tired building, but great location, very clean, very generous (tasty) breakfast, first class reception staff! Highly recommend this hotel, which is not very expensive, and suited our large skiing group. Right opposite train station, so easy for to and from Munich airport, but, importantly, also the Zugspitze train which stops at main lifts to skiing areas, including a super, though pricey, ride to top of Zugspitze (highest German mountain, at about 3K metres).
We had an overnight stop in the Mercure whilst driving the German Alpine Road (this runs for about 660 miles from Lindau on Lake Constance to Berchtesgaden near Salzburg). This hotel is just off the main highway and very easy to find. It's a good 30 minutes or so walk into town (Garmish) - in the evening at the end of April it was fairly deserted but some restaurants were open. To get to town, best go out the rear car park exit and turn left and left again by a cute little church. A couple of minutes after leaving the rear exit there is a lovely little cake shop that does a good breakfast (our booking form said the one in hotel was €18!) and the buildings in this street are beautifully decorated with murals. I thoroughly recommend the Mercure and the room rate seemed excellent value for money. It was the only hotel (or our 7) for which we were charged in advance in Sterling.
Great location for hiking (right behind hotel) and skiing. Train stop just 3 minutes walk away. It is away from main Gamisch downtown (15 minutes train ride) where all the shops and restaurants. Excellent compliments breakfast and customers services!
Pocket Guide: Upper Bavarian Alps and Lakes Zugspitze Hotels
Majestic mountains--including Germany's highest, the Zugspitze--rule this winter-sports-centric region. Gentle slopes and legendary downhill runs cater to skiers of all skill sets. Take a cable car to Zugspritze's summit for inspiring views, or challenge yourself to climbing activities at the Eibsee-Zugspitze high-wire park. A stroll through the Hollental gorge is both scenic and romantic.
