My partner and I based ourselves here for two nights in early July. Unfortunately we didn't have the best weather on our visit, so both our glacier tours got cancelled! We didn't let this spoil the fun though and managed to do both glacier public walks in the pouring rain.
So glad we did (they're amazing!) and so glad we stayed here as it was an awesome warm place to base ourselves to dry off and warm back up! The rooms are a generous size, by the looks recently renovated and the guys running the place are so lovely! It's one street back from the main street of Franz Josef and given the size of the village, it's close to everything!
Great kitchen facilities, big comfortable bed and the morning we departed the weather had cleared and we had a great view of the mountains! Who knew they were just there all along...
