Very nice historical hotel with everything preserved and nicely restored, only the bathrooms were brand new, but done in the matching style - if you want to feel like an aristocrat, who came to relax to Bad Gastein around year 1900, then this is the place to stay

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

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 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

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
