“We were treated like family!”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

In the most busy Christmas period, despite double booking problems the fantastic owner went to absolute great lenghts to accommodate not only us but our children too. Think of hospitality at its best. Spottless house, lovely room with tea making facilities, beautiful bathroom, fantastic breakfast and the warmest welcome and care offerred by "mother" Gitti - a truly great stay! Jo

Arriving here was like coming home. We arrive later than expected (2100) and were met by Frau Geschoesser as though it was a normal time of day. She walked us down to the apartment and showed us around enough to be comfortable and then let us to our sleep. The apartment was fantastic. It was very spacious and comfortable. No noise from the adjacent units either. In the morning, we went down to a very good breakfast. In addition to fresh breads and fruits, musli and such, we were also offered eggs and plenty of coffee (in addition to some good conversation). Our apartment also included a kitchen which was well stocked (including cake pans if you are not a winter sports fan)Most everything in town is walking distance and the parking is just out front with a convenient room to drop skis and boots for those so choosing.

Bottom line is that I would return to the Sonnwend in a heartbeat and hope I have the chance in the future.

Room Tip: I didn't see the others, but our room was fantastic (#11 or 12) We were on the back side. I imag...

Me and my girlfriend recently returned from Alpbach and Haus Sonnwend and we loved everything about the village, the hotel and of course our host, Gitti (although we initially thought she was called Julie due to the numerous certificates on the wall).
Great location, spotlessly clean and great value for money. Nothing more to say other than we hope to return one day!

Gitti, our host was fantastic!! Haus Sonnwend was clean, and located right in the centre of Alpbach, close to the ski hire, bus stations and shops. Gitti, our host advised us on where to eat and took time to make sure we were comfortable and made our stay a pleasure.

I highly recommend Haus Sonnwend and the friendly welcome by Gitti and her staff. Brilliant service right to the end of our holiday which included a "schapps or three" whilst we were waiting for our taxi.

Room Tip: All the rooms were furnished to a high standard, we had a suit which gave us a kitchen and a bit mor...

If Alpbach is the most beautifull Village in Austria, then Haus Sonnwend is the best place to be.
I speak out of experience of many years, so come and enjoy. Gitty, your host, is lively and speaks her languages very well, will take time to help you make your stay in Alpbach wonderfull.
Become part of the happy friends of Sonnwend.

Beds, breakfast and overall experience, 100%.

If we are ever back in Alpbach and we intend to be we will stay with here. The room was fine, the breakfast all you could ask for and the proprietess Gitti was wonderfully helpful and fun to be around and talk to.. she is fluent in English including adages and sayings.
