A very nice little idyll in the middle of the old town.
Our expectations were exceeded.

A beautiful authentic hotel in the middle of the old town of Zell am See.
You can get everywhere on foot in just a few minutes.
The service in the restaurant left nothing to be desired and the hospitality in general was great.
They always took a lot of time for the guest and gave detailed advice. Very commendable, that's how it should be.

Beautifully located small hotel with everything you need!

Located in the middle of the city, in the pedestrian zone (arrival by train recommended),
the hotel offers alls, sauna, champagne bar in the afternoon and personal breakfast. You feel right at home....
Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Everything fitted here


Quiet but centrally located, very hard-working, competent and friendly team.

Great rooms and an incredibly rich, good breakfast buffet.

The à la carte dinner was also very good and more than satisfying. The wellness area was also absolutely fine.

The package also included a picnic basket, which was lovingly filled with delicacies of all kinds.

All in all, highly recommended. The price-performance ratio is absolutely right!

We will definitely be back!

PS We couldn't believe that the Sommercard also included many lifts including the Kitzsteinhorn, Kaprun!

The ambience is excellent, old-fashioned,
everything looks as it did in the days of Emperor Fredinand and Empress Sisi.

A terrace full of parasols, cheerful colors, a pleasant place with even more delicious food and great service.
See you again in August.

A very central hotel from which you can easily reach all excursion destinations.

The included breakfast was very varied and of high quality. The small spa area, where you can relax after an excursion, should also be praised.

The staff were also friendly and we felt very comfortable. All in all a great stay.

Amazing location, just a few minutes from the City Xpress ski lift and good bus links to other ski lifts.

Walking distance to everything - bars, buses, restaurants, train! Breakfast was a traditional continental breakfast,

which is repetitive for a week's stay but perfectly adequate.

The staff were very nice, the rooms spacious and clean.
