We stayed at the Renaissance Riessersee for two nights of our honeymoon. The location was excellent - the Alps were beautiful, and the town was very quaint. We found the staff to be helpful, and all spoke English. The only complaint we had was that the hotel advertises that the guest rooms are "air conditioned." This is not the case... More

Spent two evenings at this hotel and overall a nice place to stay. The hotel is located above Garmisch (alittle hard to find) but a quiet, relaxing location. Free internet access in the lobby, nice bar, decent bar food, friendly staff. Enjoyed walking around the lake after a great lunch outside at the biergarten. The town is lovely but you... More

I got a promo. price surfing at the hotel web. The hotel in photos seemed nice, but after a long trip from Prague it shows incredible. It is beside a lake (The riessersee), flanked by lot of trees, and there in the top, the Zugspitze (The highest german mountain). The room was confortable, warm, clean and with a wooden balcony....

Wonderful stay at a fantastic hotel. The room exceeded our expectations, the restaurant and bar were wonderful, and the location, near the lake, made our stay magical!

This is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Location is rather difficult and directions are not always clear. The lobby fireplace is the icing on the cake. Plan on spending numerous hours in the lounge area.

My husband, myself and our 15 year old daughter stayed one night at this hotel July 1,2006. It does not meet Renaissance standards. Carpet in our junior suite was dirty. A/c didn't work well. The shower water temperature fluctuated without warning from "jump out of the way" scalding to cold. Front desk staff were not friendly, even though my husband... More

You'll run out of superlatives trying to describe this hotel. It sits back on a mountain, and to get to and from it, you will definitely need a car or cab, but once you get there, the hotel practically becomes its own resort. The service is excellent, and it gets even better when you speak German with the staff (even... More
