Set in the ski resort of Semmering in the "good air" of the mountains near Vienna, this hotel overlooks on of the major ski runs. At the time of my visit in September there was no snow but the "The Magic Mountain" is clearly visible form the hotel which is set high up on the slops on the opposite side... More

I stayed over a weekend back in 2008 with my wife and my 1 year old son. The rooms are very big and comfortable and the bathroom is usually at the end of a long hallway. Being an old historic hotel the furniture is old but in good shape. The bed matrasses are very comfortable as well. We had to... More

The Panhans is a gracious hotel from a bygone era. If it's good enough for Habsburgs it's good enough for me. It is set above a panoramic valley and is extremely peaceful and quiet (in Summer). Our room was huge. We enjoyed dinner with 4 great courses. Char grilled with peach and celery saute was superb as was the best... More

Visited accidentally because of overbooking in Austria caused by Fridays holiday :) and 3 days weekend. Eventhough it was "emergency" solution, it was not any fail despite many inconsistent evaluations. Simple, if you need enough spacious rooms with fair equipment and fair price, it is good choice, for example in comparing Alpenhof Hotel in the same location. To achieve most... More

We stayed here for one night during the summer. The location is up on a hillside and if you arrive as we did by train it is a VERY steep hill to get up here even if there is a walking path. Also the signs were not fully correct so we ended up walking a bit in the wrong direction... More

We stayed here in January as part of a group. The rooms are massive and luxuriant. The decor is definitely from a few decades ago - oddly adding to the charm of the place. Gorgeous mountain views and just an hour or so out of Vienna. Good spot for the ski lovers in winter.

This was my second stay at this hotel. I have to say this hotel will be my first choice when I need to stay in this area again. The desk staff was friendly and efficient as was the bar service, but the breakfat attendant was the best of all. The breakfast buffet was as good as I have seen in... More

We have travelled with one family member. The overall impression from the Panhans hotel is following - although it is not horrible, but probably it used to be very fancy and luxurious 20-50 years ago, however nowadays it doesn't correspond to the promised quality. The building needs serious maintenance. Please read until the end. Pluses - big room with 2... More
