We where three friends visiting Bad Gastein för skiing. The hotel is in between Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein. Since there are many skiing areas to visit a car is recommended. Ski busses are packed and don't go that often. If you arrive when the lifts open there are plenty of free parking space to use. Parking is free at...

Located between Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein, the location is somewhat quiet. Rooms are spacious, clean and up-to-date. It is not quite 5-star, but definitely a fine 4-star. Pool, games, etc. for kids. Best to have a car if skiing from the hotel, but a regular bus sevice is available. Handsome breakfast buffet. Pretty good value for money. Service at...

Horrible service : our bedlinen has not been changed during the whole week of our stay. The only thing they did on a daily basis was changing towels , apart from that , if you have hair lying on the floor get ready that they will stay with you until you leave. Dust everywhere and maids go around without a...

Hotel is about 30 min. out of the City Center of bad gastein, but walking at the "Wasserfallweg" towards the City is very nice. With the car you drive 5 minutes. Our room was brand new and very nice.

We just wanted a quiet comfy place in the mountains with a good spa where we could take each day as it comes, suit ourselves and chill. And this is what we got. The room was just as expected (one up from the cheapest) and was extremely well equipped (as was the bathroom). It's in traditional Austrian light wood with...

The Europaeischer Hof was much more than I had expected after reading reviews and visiting their website. Their customer service and attentiveness was extremely outstanding. We were satisfied with every detail throughout our stay, except one, that is the outdated outfit of the hotel, 80 ish like-a-hospital styling/feeling. The rooms were properly cleaned and turned-over in the evening-like a premium...

If you get a first or second floor room with what they say is "a view of the forest" you will only see a huge concrete wall. The staff's attitude: if you go for a stroll wearing a jacket (because it's winter season!) and then stop to get dinner they will say that the restaurant is full; only after 10...
