We arrived in the morning, earlier than check in time. Gitti the owner greeted us with enthusiasm, offered us breakfast and then escorted us to our room. We felt welcome and taken care of. Alpbach is a beautiful little town - clean, full of character and warmth.

Alphach is a very cosy and friendly ski town. It's not the most popular resort in Austria but then the good thing is it's relatively quiet and peaceful. We spent 3 nights in this beautiful town but it's not enough to explore the various ski slopes around here. There are many guest houses in this town and I am sure... More

Haus Sonnwend is located right in the center of the village. Everything is walking distance - food, great hikes, village festivities, a grocery store. We stayed in a downstairs unit with a small kitchen. The room seemed brand new and it was spotless. It was perfect for our small family of three, and seemed like a great value. Giti, the... More

This Hotel garni is located in the center of the village, allowing you to dine out every evening in another restaurant without having a hike before and after. Cosy place with good breakfast. Ground level appartments are renovated but lead directly to the parking lot, so you have no little balcony of your own. Lovely breakfast, nice service. No elevator... More

We have just spent a couple of nights in Alpbach and even though the weather was not great we had a lovely time. The owner is very welcoming and the studio we were in was spotless and modern. We could not have asked for more and it exceeded our expectations. Great value for money too. We had a meal in... More

We spent our holidays in Alpbach with our 10 month old boy and we had all the comforts we needed (especially for our little one!)! Brigitte is very welcoming and able to comply with your requests even before you make them! We literally felt like at home and the atmosphere she is able to create is very special. Very good...

We booked this guesthouse after learning that Alpbach was officially the prettiest village in Austria, and we really fell on our feet here. This establishment sets the standard for all others. Spotlessly clean and well appointed, with the most charming owner you could expect to meet. Dressed in traditional costume when we arrived, she spoke good English, and was most... More

If you want personal attention, an authentic local experience and excellent value, Gitti will ensure it. This is my favourite place to stay in my travels around the world. (I am not interested in so called 5 star large luxury hotels insulated from the surrounding culture. I prefer more intimate accommodation with local flavour.) Gitti's welcome is warm and bubbling...

Haus Sonnwend is certainly THE place to stay in Alpbach. Bang in the centre of the most beautiful village in Austria, Gitti makes you so welcome. Her breakfasts are legendary and nothing is too much trouble for her and daughter Sophie. We will definitely be back.
