My wife and I booked this hotel for our ski holiday in the resort. Our four friends booked later and couldn't get rooms in this hotel so they booked in the Statdor in the centre of town where, for a little extra cash, I think they received better value for money.
Zum Kaiserweg is very clean and comfortable. My wife and I were not particularly looking forward to the food. But despite the fact that there was no choice of dishes on the menu we found the food to be wholesome and delicious. The owner's wife is the chef.
The hotel is about a 3 minute walk away to the Jet Hochwurzen gondola and about 15 minutes away from the Planai Gondola. You cannot ski down to the hotel. Also the worst part is that if you are skiing on the Planai side of the mountains then you have to take this Gondola down at the end of the day, and, disappointingly the last lift down is 4:30 pm. The alternative is to ski down to the Planai station and bus/walk back to the hotel. If you are skiing across to Hochwurzen and Reiteralm then access to this side of the mountain is gained by a chair at the Jet gondola. You can ski all the way down to the bottom of this chair.
The owner, Raimond, is a very pleasant man but speaks very little English consequently there is little interaction between him and the guests although I found this to apply to all nationalties and not just British.
The hotel has a bar but zero atmosphere in respect of Apres-ski. I never saw anyone use the bar. That said there is plenty of bars and restaurants in the centre of town.
The hotel has a desk top PC in one of it's tv rooms so you can use the internet free of charge (if you can get round the translation issues of using a well known browser in German)!
It also has a ski room with heated boot rack although there is insufficient room on it to take everyone's boots.
