Best Western Ahorn Hotel Oberwiesenthal
Reviewed 18 August 2017

Im sitting in my room, thinking time has went back to 1980. The decor is very basic and scratched, not updated in years. The views are great, but they made metal around the front of the building, it looks like balconies, its not!

Minibar has 6 uninteresting drinks in it, and ONE mars bar, nothing else..

There is a brand new pod coffee machine in the room, its clearly never used, because you have to pay for the pods down in the bar, but there is a selection of nice instant coffees, fruit teas etc, but I fear they wasted their money on the pod machines.

Reception was lovely, member of staff was very helpful and friendly.

There is woodchip on the walls in this room, the bathroom is White and soul-less, they could have done so much better. So many hotels I've stayed in at the same or lower price with a much higher standard of room, they do need to up the game, the other areas of the hotel are lovely.

Parking isn't cheap either.

Room Tip: Ask for a modern room!

Very clean mordern hotel at the foot of the skiing hils, perfect for hiking and long walks in the hills. Friendly staff and very clean, rustic German alpine hotel. Restuarant serves good local cuisine and a hearty breakfast served in a sun splashed room.

This hotel is located in the mountains and the nearby town is billed as the highest town in Germany. The altitude made for pleasant days away from the heat. Our check in was very quick and easy. The room was adequate for our needs and was equipped with king bed, stocked mini-fridge, flat screen television with international channels, and large safe. The room does not have an air conditioner for cooling but the hotel will provide at no cost fans if needed. Our rate included meals and there were always ample choices to choose from. Meals could be enjoyed in the dining area or on the terrace overlooking the lake. The nearby town is only a 10 minute walk and has several restaurants and shops. Summer activities around the hotel included trails for walking, chairlift, and bike rental. The hotel also provides free parking.

Room Tip: All even numbered rooms face the lake and offer a good view of the mountains. The odd numbered rooms...

The hotel has got 172 rooms and yes it has been bulit in the GDR-look but that does not matter as inside everything is fine! Check in and Check-out was absolutely no problem, the people behind the desk were very freindly and gave us tips where to go during our stay at Oberwiesenthal. Our romm has been located on the 6th floor with 2 TV-flat-screens and a balcony and everything else was fine too. AS a guest you are also allowed to use the indoor swimming pool at the sister hotel. The hotel itself has a nice and large wellness area which you can use. The hotel also has a lounge for smokers. So if you wanna have some relaxing days you can chosse this hotel and enjoy its service and the beautiful landscape around it.

This wa an excellent base for out railway based holiday in February 2013. We had 4 days, half board, in this hotel with railtrips on the steam railways in the area.

Excellent room and good service once we had read the instructions properly. We had wifi access and a tea tray in the room, the room was ver clean and lovely and warm. we could easily control the temperature.

breakfasts were very good except there was no porridge optio (an it was cold weather, -6 degrees C.

Evening meals were a little variable but when we opted for the buffet it was excellent.

A good base for a holiday in the cold weather. Excellt ski facilities forthose who braved the slopes. brilliant snow clearing by the local authority so we did not miss any of our booked trips.

Room Tip: We had a view of the slopes - excellent
