This hotel is just about perfect. Located a few minutes uphill walk out of Saalbach, with fantastic views over the Saalbach-Hinterglemm ski area. It is built completely of wood, not a drop of paint to be seen. Staff are all very pleasant and helpful, checkin quick and efficient, good-sized rooms with balcony and all necessary equipment - small bar/refrigerator, flatscreen TV, safe. Fast wifi internet in reception area. Excellent breakfast in spotless surroundings.
The hotel is tastefully decorated with the works - paintings and sculptures - of the artist owner; the most striking being the 3-storey high mirror tree filling most of the entrance lobby.
For the skier - a few metres from the front door there is a separate, secure building for storage of skis and boots (on heated racks of course). Walk 100m up to top of a short piste to take you to Saalbach centre and the start of the Saalbach-Hinterglemm adventure. At end of the day take the lift up again and either go straight into the most incredible after-ski atmosphere you can imagine, or ski right into the hotel to relax first before heading for the after-ski.
If you are hiring skis the hotel will arrange for free taxi to take you to the ski-shop at start and end of hire.
There is a wellness centre, visible through the glass floor of reception, with perfectly heated pool, sauna, steam room etc. On the roof is another sauna, with panoramic views over Saalbach-Hinterglemm.
I have travelled a lot but this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Not overly luxurious, just everything is right.
We will be back.
