“Great People, Great Views & a Great Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Haus Karl's Ruh for our holiday. The experience was wonderful and the people who ran the the pension were nice, informative and made the whole experience a great one. They helped us schedule a great dinner for our anniversery, which was the best steak we had ever had in Europe.

Our room, which was on the bottom floor, had a beautiful view of the Alps in the area. Everyday the same mountains would look so different based on the weather. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom newly renovated. It was very clean and tidy and the room was very spacious. Their breakfasts were tasty and filling and we never left hungry in the morning. The prices are very reasonable.

Ehrwald was a great place to hang out and explore the local area and hike. If you enjoy hiking than Ehrwald, which this pension is at the heart at, is the perfect place to be. The owners are native English speaking, which is great for those who are also native English speakers.

Over all my husband and I had a great time and enjoyed the Haus Karl's Ruh. We will be sure to be back again and would highly recommend it!

Room Tip: The bottom floor doesn't have a balcony but it still have beautiful views. It is very quiet.

We found this B&B through Trip Advisor and happy to report that the reviews were right. Excellent value, room looked recently decorated and very clean, big shower!. Not flash but very friendly hosts, and you do really feel at home and relaxed staying there. Austrian breakfast varied slightly every day which is a nice touch if staying for a while. Balcony had amazing view of mountains. We stayed 4 nights and had some fantastic half day/full day walks and trips. Don't save Ehrwald for snow - summer is as good!

We are always very happy when guests say they felt relaxed and at home when they stayed with us as this is our main aim because we are a relatively small B&B.
You also made the comment that Ehrwald shouldn't just 'be saved for the snow but is as beautiful in summer' and I couldn't agree more! Summer is definitely my favourite season in the mountains, although I have a feeling that Gary will probably disagree with me on this, as he is a committed winter sports enthusiast!
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us and very best wishes,
Evelyn and Gary

We stayed here for a week's escape in early June, and we couldn't have chosen a better base for our climbing and walking holiday.
We don't often stay in one hotel for as long as this, but everything about it made it the perfect place to stay - from the room itself, and the amazing views of Ehrwald, to the lovely breakfasts each morning and of course the hospitality of Gary and Evelyn.
While there are also other nice (more expensive) hotels in Ehrwald that do half board, we would recommend staying here and using the freedom to visit the great range of restaurants in town.
Thanks Evelyn and Gary!

Thank you for all your positive feedback regarding your stay in Haus Karl's Ruh. The fact that you don't normally stay as long in one hotel but felt happy and comfortable with us for 7 nights is a real compliment to Gary and I!
We are also pleased you were able to sample the lovely restaurants there are in Ehrwald and that you enjoyed them so much you have recommended this option to other would be visitors, as we really feel this is one of Ehrwald's strengths!
We hope you may return to our region for climbing/via ferrata in the future and that if you do so you will again stay with us.
Best wishes

I stayed three nights with my family in early June. The B&B is clean, the hosts are kind and can offer tips and help on hiking and the surroundings. A trully good place to stay, both for groups and single travellers. Wonderful views over the valley!

Ehrwald is a lovely village with stunning views and fine resturants that are good value.

It was a pleasure to welcome you as our first guests from Norway and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay and the walks that you did. Ehrwald is a beautiful place, but then of course we would say that as we have chosen to live here, so it is lovely when our guests comment on the valley and the beautiful views. 'Eating out' is another strong point in Ehrwald and we recommend all the local restaurants to our guests as the food really is excellent both in terms of quality and value for money. Thank you for your feedback and we hope to see you and your family again.

Best wishes

When we were looking for a place to stay on our trip from Italy back to Holland we picked this B&B because it had such high ratings. After reading the comments we decided to not only stay over for one night but added 2 more nights and men what are we glad we did. All the positive comments are true. We stayed at the standard room because the en-suite rooms were already booked. Although smaller the room was comfortable and very clean. The room has a comfortable bed (which says a lot with me being 1,94m), a couch, a closet and a handbasin/mirror (which is handy because the standard room does not have a bathroom). The views from the rooms and around the house are amazing (see photos). As mentioned by others the breakfast is excellent (not a buffet but with service!). There is parking on the premises (a big plus for us). And of course the hosts make you feel a true welcome guest. We cannot comment on Gary (he was in England during our stay), but Evelyn and Kerstin did an excellent job (see no need for Gary, :P ). Last but not least the house dog: Heidi. If you are into dogs Heidi is a big bonus. You can play with her and enjoy her friendly nature. But if dogs are not your cup of tea then she will not interfere with your holiday (she is not free to roam around the house and well behaved).
We highly recommend this B&B and if you are just travelling through, book some extra nights, you won’t regret it!

Hello Joris and Petra,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us, it was a great pleasure to meet you both and we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you so wholeheartedly recommend us.
Gary returned from England very worried that he may be out of a job following your comments about how well Kerstin and I had done looking after you!!
We hope you will return to Ehrwald at some point in the future and that we can welcome you to Haus Karl's Ruh again if you do so.
Best wishes, Evelyn, Gary and Kerstin.
