We were a group of 10 ladies aged 40-50 years. The hotel is in a wonderful location - 10 minute walk to the lifts, and right in centre of the town, excellent for apres ski. A 3 minute walk to Villa Crazy Daisy where the live music and friendly atmosphere made it the best choice in town for us. We rented boot lockers and used ski storage at the Intersport shop beneath the gondola station, so we did not have to walk to the lifts in ski boots carrying skis. The rooms at the Gruener Baum were spotlessly clean, modern and comfortable, we had a balcony with slope view, beautiful bathroom, with natural stone floor and huge shower head, modern sink and loo - again all very clean. The balcony door/windows were well insulated to keep down the noise of the nearby apres ski if you want to take a pre-dinner nap! The girls on reception could not have been more helpful, even sorting out our lift passes and restaurant reservations. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and they were always friendly and approachable. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious - meats, cheeses, fruit, yogurt, different breads, scrambled egg and the best boiled eggs I have ever had in a hotel (soft boiled every time). We ate in the restaurant half board on the first night, and it was good value but there were not many full tables. After that we tried eating in the hotel's restaurant (also open to outsiders) the Gaststuebe, which had a lovely lively atmosphere and fabulous food - I had beef in peppercorn sauce which was delicious. We enjoyed it so much, we went back again, this time I had the Ox steak, which was excellent. There is a bar in the Gaststuebe, and a small apres ski bar on the ground floor, plus Greens Cocktail bar in the basement, also a sauna and ski storage room in the basement. All this at very modest cost - I would definitely stay here again if returning to Zell am See and recommend it to other travellers!
