Best of the Best Hotels

Top - Germany

When you think of a hotel that checks all the boxes (outstanding service, comfy rooms, the works) it’s probably one of these winning spots.

The Travellers’ Choice Awards Best of the Best title celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel. It’s awarded to those who receive a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. Out of our 8 million listings, fewer than 1% achieve this milestone.


Alm- & Wellnesshotel Alpenhof is where you can find serenity in a picturesque mountain setting, with top-notch wellness facilities to rejuvenate your body and mind. The large, cosy bedrooms provide ample storage, high levels of comfort, and idyllic views. Get active with walking tours, skiing, badminton, or mini-golf, then unwind in the steam room, solarium, or heated indoor and outdoor pools. Relish the excellent food, including vegetarian and healthy options, at the on-site restaurant, or enjoy a drink at the bar. The friendly, professional staff prioritise your happiness, making your stay genuinely delightful.

    We stayed four nights at this hotel and loved everything about it. Staff was very welcoming and friendly upon checkin. They also helped us to purchase tickets for Königssee. Room was very clean and spacious and the view was lovely. Dining staff was exceptional - food was fantastic, drinks were delicious and the service was excellent. We enjoyed relaxing at the pool in the afternoons also. We hope to come back again some day!

    Have stayed here for a week for the last few summers and this has definitely become one of our favorite hotels. Every aspect of the hotel is well managed, with the friendliest and most personable staff, outstanding facilities (spa, restaurant, workout facility...), great food, comfortable rooms with ample storage and great views, and the idyllic setting of the hotel itself. It's no wonder you see many of the same guests from year to year as the high quality experience provided by the hotel clearly does not go unnoticed.

    The third time we’ve stayed here and it was like coming home, if we lived in a mansion with fantastic spa facilities, a good bar and a top class chef. The staff are always very welcoming and although it keeps growing, the hotel retains its family run atmosphere. Seriously it just gets better here. The spa has been extended since our first visit and is top class with dry sauna, steam room and relaxation rooms with waterbeds! The pools(indoor and out) are great too. The food is just fabulous with huge choices at both breakfast and dinner with something to suit everybody. The location is great too. Half an hour from Salzburg and lots of alpine stuff around (Bad Reichenhall is lovely). PS Don’t just go B&B. Dinner cost is minimal for a fantastic meal!

    This is a stunning hotel in a stunning location. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and pretty much everyone speaks very good English. The room we stayed in was large with an incredible view of the mountains. There was a large very comfortable bed and a really nice bathroom. They have a lovely scheme where you can opt to skip housekeeping for the day and they will pay for a tree to be planted instead. The pool areas are wonderful and there are so many different areas to sit, relax and take in the views. While we were there this included paragliders floating over the valley. I was very very impressed by the food. Our first meal was the set menu for dinner. We had no idea how much it would be but we were astonished that it was only €25 each. The quality of each course was very high, so we opted to eat in the hotel each night. Breakfasts were also great with a huge choice of continental and cooked items. The selection of teas and the freshly squeezed juice were both very welcome. Between 2pm and 4pm there are also free ‘snacks’ available but this is again a sizeable selection of meat, cheese, salads, bread and absolutely delicious cakes, which were a full meal rather than a snack. I have stayed in similarly priced hotels and it always seems like the drinks and food are an absolute rip off but at the Alpenhof everything is so reasonably priced. We could not have been happier here it is an absolute gem!
