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

We went for a short weekend to do a bit of skiing and had a lovely, relaxing stay. Our rooms were in the back building, but had really nice views and were quite spacious and comfortable. The internet was free and fast, and parking was easy. Breakfast, which was included, was very lovely, with a wide variety of delicious breakfast... More

My partner had been there for a business dinner and considering that we both love ancient buildings he wanted to surprise me and booked a weekend ... As usual he first checked prices, rooms and vacancies on booking.com (the offer was 176€ for 2 nights, 2 people, b&b), then he phoned to ask if the offer was real. The lady... More

I have to start with the fact that Panhans must have been a great luxury hotel 30-100 years ago. Therefor the designers couldn't decide whether their task is to maintain the same good old (kitschy and eclectic) enterieur, or to develop as time goes by, so they did both. There are some really nice conference rooms, but overall the hotel's... More

Panhans is probably the best Semmering hotel with only potential drawback as being located at thefar side from the ski slopes. It would take 15 mins to go there down the hill and abt 20 minutes back. Shuttle bus is provied 2 times per hour but is not 100% reliable (sometimes it doesnt appear). But that is probably the only... More

We spent 2 nights in this hotel and enjoyed the trip immensely. It is not far from Vienna and it is easy to get to the good training ski slopes and higher level ski slopes by car and by foot. Stuhleck is recommended as well as Semmering. The rooms are large and dogs are allowed and welcomed by the friendly... More
