At a glance the hotel seems a bit far from Graukogel lift but the fantastic service offered by shuttling you to the lift entrance more than compensates and I prefer this to walking 150 m. The staff is super friendly and the spa a great retreat after a day in the slopes. We will surely return!

Just back from staying at the Sanotel for a week. Went with no real expectations - was on a Crystal ski holiday and this looked like the best option at the lower end of the price range. What a pleasant surprise. First my son and I were given an apartment in a nearby block that the hotel also uses. Much... More

We have just returned from a week in Bad Gastein, we went with Crystal Ski holidays, where we stayed at the Sanotel. The staff at the Sanotel are all very helpful, providing excellent friendly service in all aspects: very clean room and great food. A pity the natural thermal bath in the spa was temporarily out of action but everything... More

We were there with a group of 40,the last week of August. Certainly it was a challenge for the little hotel, but they did it perfectly!!! Our room was clean and big. An amazing view to waterfall, noisy of course ,but from the second night we slept like angels. Very good breakfast: cold meats, eggs, juices,cereals,different bakery,fresh fruits and vegetables....

Plus The view from the restaurant was amazing. The problem was, we were never allowed to sit at the table with the view. We sneaked a few times during breakfast. Food was nice. Staff from the reception was kind of nice. Bad Gastein is nice, not much to do, but quiet and beautiful. Negativ It was not the best trip... More

As person who visited the hotel just a few weeks I can say that if you plan to visit this hotel, then average feedback from Tripadvisor is 95% correct. Hope my feedback will help others to make correct choice for their vacation. 1. It is true that it is far from the center if you have a child or you... More

This was our 4th visit to Bad Gastein and our 1st visit to the Sanotel. We were in the annexe called The Residenz which was up quite a steep hill behind the hotel and moving our luggage up to it was quite difficult. However when we arrived in our spacious appartment, we were very happy with its facilities. We had... More

Went here for a couple of days, The rooms are ok, well cleaned and maintained, Bed was hard and not so comfortable. Breakfast was good, Dinner was a bit disappointing as it is buffet style with different themes each night. Although it is announced as a 4 course dinner. There is quite a walk from the city centre / liftstation... More
