We stayed at the Hotel Norica for 5 nights in August with our 2 young kids (1, 3 y.o.). The room was big enough for 2 kids travel beds. The reception staff, service staff, room cleaners and everyone in the hotel were exceptionally welcoming, nice and efficient. The food was great and they had a reasonably priced wine list. We...

We ventured all the way from Australia to have a white xmas in Austria and were not disappointed. Everything about this hotel was great, food, wine, staff, location, thermal baths, extras. When we arrived there was already a covering of snow in the village and surrounding mountains but none fell while we were there. On the first day we took... More

Stayed at Norica with my parents for a 3 nights in December. Hotel is located in the heart of a small village, Bad Hofgastein. Provides free access to local thermal resort (via underground tunnels, very cool) and also has own pool/sauna combo. Multilingual personnel is beyond helpful, day and night, and always with a genuine smile. Rooms are spacious but... More

Beautiful hotel. Excellent services. Wonderful location. I had a realy great time - the room was nice and comfortable, the whole hotel has that friendly family atmosphere provided by its staff. And you can find there lovely details like a walk through (in a bath robe if you wish) tunnel to near thermal spa. I definitely will come back.

My friends and I recently stayed at the Norica for a business conference. Upon arriving, two of us who always stay together in the same room, were told that we had been "upgraded" because the hotel was full. Thank goodness for that! Our room was spacious and clean, but our colleague's room on the 4th floor - which he was... More

We are coming to the Gastein Valley since 7years, and this was our 4th stay in the hotel. Some things have been changed, unfortunately for worse. I used to love hotel Norica for the nice, ‘family’ atmosphere. This time I have the impression, that it’s not the same anymore. Don’t misunderstand me – it’s still good hotel, but for 1000euro...

My 4th visit to Bad Hof Gastein, and my 3th stay in Norica. That should say everything! Quality for money - OK. Comfort OK. Attitude of the personnel - very OK! I can observe that the hotel has been "conquered" by eastern Europeans - mainly from Russia, Ukraine and Romania! To be true I havent heard German language anywhere in... More

This is a wonderful, fabulous and glamorous hotel. Located in the center of town, with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. The first impression is the arrival at the hotel as you come to close friends as guests. Very nice and pleasant staff in traditional costumes welcomed guests.

This was our forth trip to Bad Hofgastein. Again we have chosen NORICA, because it has always been the best choice. Even the service is still great and the location is still a great place to stay we have to say: It is not getting better. Why? First of all we booked a Suite and just got a double room.... More
