One thing Germany does not get enough credit for is value when it comes to accommodation and those in the mountains seemed to be particularly good. We had no trouble finding a reasonable nice room for our one night stay in Mittenwald. Even the smallest places seem to have some web presence and that is where we found Pension Landhaus Sailer. This was a very cosy homey place conveniently located in the center of town. Even more handy was its proximity to the Mittenwald Brewery, which was right around the corner!
Typical of the region, as soon as you walk in, it's like you're visiting your grandmother with knickknacks and a warm welcome. Our room was at the top and with no elevator, it meant we would get some pre-hiking in before the hikes but this was one climb well worth the effort. The A-frame ceiling made us feel like we were in a mountain chalet and the big bed was adorned with feather pillows and comforters that made us want to climb right in. The bathroom was modern with a nice bright skylight for natural light. There was also an ample balcony with views of the surrounding hills and similar rustic wooden houses. With more time, this would have been a place we would have spent more time.
Since we were there for only one night, we opted for the breakfast which was good but slowed us down with regard to getting on the trail. You can take your room with or without meals which makes for a stay the way you want it. There are many different types of rooms, some with cooking facilities for those with families or on a budget. Prices vary with the season, room type and how many days you stay. Generally speaking, you pay more if you stay only one night as they have to change the sheets and clean the room the same as if you stayed longer. Week stays look to be a particularly good deal.
We paid €45 for a Saturday night in late June 2010 and this included a fair sized breakfast.
