“Hotel faultless but not that central”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Very much liked the hotel - great views, modern rooms, friendly staff, nice garden. Probably very handy in winter as close to the slopes but during the summer that means a good 15min walk from the town centre, part of it uphill.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2009

I booked this room through a 2nd party booking engine. I did not know what I was getting into. This family-run pension is wonderful! Guido and Kerstin are very gracious hosts. This pension is slopeside and an easy ski down to the Hahnenkammbahn gondola. Also, at the end of the day, you can ski to ride outside the nicely designed ski room with large heated boot dryer rack.

Room: The rooms are very nice and clean. Mine had a nice balcony overlooking the town of Kitzbuhel. The gondola goes nearly right over the building but does not make much sound. The room had a nice sized bathroom, comfortable beds, good closet space and cable TV. The TV is not large but who comes to Kitzbuhel to watch TV!?

Breakfast Room: There are two rooms one can eat breakfast in with ample seating. The rooms are comfortable and you can't get into them in the morning without Kerstin or Guido taking your egg/coffee order. They truly are "on the spot". For breakfast, there are several types of breads, juice, yogurt, meats and cheeses, fresh fruit, cereals, honey, preserves... More than enough to get me through my ski day.

The pension is a 10 minute walk from the Hahnenkammbahn train station, albiet up a hill. A strenuous walk with skis and luggage but I did it. There are cabs around if you prefer. After checking out, Guido took time out of his busy morning to offer me a ride to the train station. What a touch of class...

Oh, did I mention, Guido and Kerstin were both World Cup skiers? You may be fortunate enough to meet Guido's father, Ernst while you visit. Oh yeah, Ernst won Olymipic Gold for slalom skiing at the 1960 winter Olympics in Squaw Valley, California. You can see neat momentos and trophys around the house from their skiing accomplishments.

I would recommend booking directly with Guido and Kerstin. Contact information is available at their website: http://www.pension-hinterseer.at They both speak good English.

If you stay, be sure to give their dog "Nike" a scratch behind the ear for me.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2008

This is a pleasant family run pension (B&B only), about 500m up the hill (away from the town centre) from the Hahnenkammbahn, which passes almost overhead. The rooms are simple but comfortable, very clean and with (in my case) a balcony and a view of the mountain. It is possible to ski to and from about 50m from the hotel, which has a good boot room.

Breakfast is taken in a large sunny dining room and is simple but good; colld meat, cheese, cereal, juice, coffee, cooked eggs.

The staff includes a friendly dog, Nike.

The hotel also offers an apartment and has a large garden.

The hotel offers a pleasant, convenient, good value stay.

Bad points? None, really. There's no lift or bar, although beers are available in one's room. The rooms are not luxurious, but perfectly adequate.
