This hotel is approximately a five minute walk from the center but well worth it. It's charming, elegant, comfortable and the service is outstanding. The owners are unbelievably nice and helpful, the breakfast is great and the whole experience is just top notch. If I go back to bad gastein this will be where I stay, and I recommend everyone...

The commitment and kindness of the hosts is overwhelming. They have a really personal serving touch and will do the utmost to make you feel comfortable. Villa Excelsior is ten minutes walk from the city centre which suit us well. The building is charming, eg. it has a chapel inside. Tip: the best Apfelstrudel you will get on top of... More

My husband and I were delighted with our stay in the Villa Excelsior. We were picked up at the train station (free of charge!) and taken to the hotel. The hotel is very attractive and provided us with breakfast and supper. The food was very delicious. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Christoph made our stay absolutely perfect. The... More

We have just got back from 4 nights in this delightful hotel. We were there with a large group of friends, and absolutely nothing was too much trouble for Christoph (let's face it, groups can be very demanding and he was always smiling). I had my birthday on Saturday, and Christophs mother made us an extremely delicious cake (thank you!).... More

We spent one week in this hotel in May this year. It is the very low season in Bad Gastein. Good point was perfect wifi in the hole hotel. And very nice view from upper floor. Our bed was too soft, bathroom guite small and breakfast could be better in 3star Austrian hotel. You can walk to the center of... More

Excelsior was much better than I could expect for a ski holiday. It has the air of bygone times with generously decorated spatial bedrooms and a few lounges to sit and a chapel under the same roof.The bathroom though was all modern, with a big tub and very good local water. The service, the food, the ski shuttle - all... More

This was one of my most relaxing holidays ever! I went to Bad Gastein to take advantage of the Radon treatments and in the end the quality of the entire holiday was far beyond anything I could have expected. The Villa Excelsior is run by a young couple who are only too happy to help out with your every need.... More

I have traveled a bit, and this may be the most enjoyable place I ever stayed. The host and his wife and staff are extremely welcoming and committed to service. You feel like a personal guest here. The pension cultivates the genteel feel of a hotel in Bad Gastein's early 20th-century heyday. The rooms are comfortable, some with stunning views.... More

The Old and Stylish place. You feel like hundred years ago. Common places you can sit, read, play chess or simply think. Breakfast with all you need. The dinner with five courses - choose in the morning, savor in the evening. Absolutely delicious. Rooms furnished with stylish, old furniture. Yes, you are in Old Austria. Excellent service: competent, friendly owners... More
