Villa Excelsior took me by surprise on how comfortable and nice with personalized service by the owners was. The room rate was excellent for the top notch service I received. The especially liked the location where I was able to go trekking and walk arounds the woods when I was not skiing. The thermal bath experience was also very pleasant... More

We really love coming here, it feels as a second home. We've been to Bad Gastein four times now and we've stayed at the Villa every time. We've visited many of the other hotels meeting friends and relatives but keep coming back to Villa Excelsior for their excellent service, friendliness and their will to do everything in their power to...

Very nice place to stay. Perfect service, good food and very friendly owner. Overall atmosphere in the hotel absolutely charming. I would not even think of any other place, if I have a chance to visit Bad Gastein again.

We stayed for 4 days in Villa Excelsior and every day enjoyed the best service one can ask for in a hotel. All our questions were answered and all requests were taken care of. We will definitely return to this hotel again next time we are skiing in Gastein valley. The hosts arranged our pick up from the train station... More

Service couldn't have been better, answered any questions we had both before and during our visit. Christoph was charming, nothing too much bother and any information provided immediately or answered wthout fuss and with a smile. Our room, breakfast and dinner was excellent value, with delicious food (multiple language translations of the menu although a couple of interpretations were surprising... More

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...

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
