The hotel is located remotely on top of a mountain. It's hard to get there by public transportation, but they offer a shuttle service (unfortunately, only on Friday and Sunday). Their concept is unique: a hotel for people traveling alone only. You'll never sit alone at a table and they offer a lot sport activities and a small spa area. The average age is between 40 and 65. With 32 years, I was too young. Due to prices, most of the guests are middle or upper class people. The intellectual level is high within the week, but drops significantly over the weekend because of the simple minded people coming just over the weekend for drinking in the hotel disco. The rooms are big and all of them offer a great view on the alps. The food is fine and the staff friendly.

First impressions, a very large glass building set up on a hill with views to rolling valley below. Seems very quite and peaceful with a large parking lot out side. Plan to drive for an hour or so on small twisty roads once getting of the main roads. It is remotely located up in the rolling hills near to the Chek border. Construction is in progress on separate ALM building site but does not disturb the rest of the hotel. Entrance is very welcoming with a friendly staff at check in desk and a modern decor. Rooms are allotted in advance but if you have special wishes, call early and they do their best to accommodate for them. Was very pleased to see they try their best to give you what you want. INTERNET: terrible connection all over. Cell service also very weak. Best in bar area but with a hotel this size; I would have expected a better access, esp. with iPhone (no connection at all in room) and having to always sit at the bar to send private emails is not acceptable. ROOM: Perfect for one. Sharing would be tight but cozy with a friend. All rooms are modern with a beautiful valley view but disco noise will disturb middle rooms up to third floor and if you are very unlucky, a screams and moans from a neighboring room going at it. Bathrooms supplied with lotion only. No shampoo, conditioner. Bring your own. Hair dryers are powerful. FOOD: prepare to eat and eat. Food is lovely and tons of it. Shame dinner is served so late. MEET NEW FRIEND EFFECT: well, it’s a single hotel and you can guess, this is a meat market! 50% of the guests were regulars and most knew each other. (Could be due to the weekend booked). Most of the men are there for 2 things, drinking and getting lucky for a weekend. For this matter, some of the women are too. Average age is between 40-60. The others just want to meet people. Everyone was very friendly (including the owner who joins the guests before dinner every night among participation in other events…) and you would never be alone, unless you took a walk into the woods on purpose. VERY NEGATIVES: The hotel likes to promote healthy living and offer fitness programs such as walking, (beautiful area), biking, yoga (excellent trainer), salsa dance lessons (also very good and easy to learn) yet…. The guests smoke everywhere!!! It is disgusting! Outside around the sauna, walking everywhere around the Jacuzzi and pool area and in the disco/bar all day and night. If you are a non-smoker the option to go dancing at night or just enjoy the healthy part of this hotel is ruined and a total waste of money and time. If you are interested in wellness, relaxation and fitness, avoid this hotel at all costs. If you are into drinking, chasing the opposite sex and lots of naked people on display all day long, then this might be the place for you.

I stayed in a single room. Breakfast and dinner were included. I was here for work, therefore I could use the hotel's amenities in the evening only. The room was big, very clean, comfortable, cosy, with a beautiful view. The hotel is smart and welcoming. I have appreciated a lot the SPA and swimming pool. The only "minus" that I can tell is that the wellness area was not attended. The restaurant served good food and catered for vegans as well, but the ingredients of some meals were not excellent quality and the recipies had a "german" taste (a bit of sweet flavour was added in almost all dishes). The staff was kind, but the reception was closing early in the evening and the restaurant staff should have been more trained and also increased in number. A very nice stay.

I stayed for 3 nights and had a very good time. However I got to say that I did not seek for relaxing and calm enjoyment of spa only and was open to get to know people and not go to bed early. The hotel is modern and upscale from interior and architecture perspective and is located in the beautiful Mühlviertel which allows for plenty outdoor activities. I think I'd rather not recommend the place to peaple seeking for silence only as especially the discotheque in the basement generates some noise which you might be hearing if you go to bed early. The concept as how to meet new people functions well and serves the purpose of the hotel and it's slogan: make friends.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung und die Mühe, so ausführlich auch für unsere internationalen Gäste zu schreiben! "Make friends", unsere Botschaft und Positionierung, trifft den Spirit von AVIVA wirklich am besten. Ankommen und sofort neue Freunde finden, in Kontakt kommen, diesen besonderen Ort der Begegnung nutzen! Wer es lieber ruhig möchte und am Abend relaxen und ausschlafen will, wünscht sich am besten gleich bei der Reservierung ein Zimmer im 4. oder 5. Stock. Denn eines ist im AVIVA fix: Alles können, nichts müssen. Partytiger und Action-Liebhaber kommen hier genauso auf ihre Kosten wie Ruhesuchende und Menschen, die eine Auszeit brauchen - an einem der wunderschönsten Kraftplätze des Mühlviertels! Wir hoffen sie bald wieder bei uns begrüßen zu dürfen! Wunderschöne Grüße

I have never felt as uncomfortable in any place across five continents as I have felt in this hotel. After the third little group started discussing unprompted another modern "Endlösung" for all the undesirable foreigners in Germany and Austria and proffered that it would be perfectly advisable to remove procreation rights from them I simply had enough. As a consequence I chose to cut my trip in half. Upon check out, I asked for consideration to count my miscellaneous charges against the pre-paid remainder of the hotel stay. Mind you I am telling them that in return for $50 I am given them several hundred dollars; no questions asked just to leave. However, to heap insult to injury, then, management insisted, counter to all business and logic, that they do not get paid at all for any of my stay and I would need to pay misc. charges anyways. This, of course, is nonsensical and not what my travel agency shared with me, but my goal was solely to depart at this point. The landscape around the hotel is nice and this the only type of hotel in an otherwise underdeveloped rural area. If you can associate with a certain mindset and do not mind the company you are golden.

Lieber Gast, erstmal vielen Dank für Ihren Kommentar! Es tut uns leid, dass Sie sich bei uns nicht wohl gefühlt haben. Kommunikation steht im AVIVA im Mittelpunkt, da kann es schon einmal vorkommen, dass einem die Gespräche vielleicht nicht so zusagen. Aber schön, dass Ihnen zumindest die Landschaft und der herrliche Ausblick mit seiner Panorama-Fernsicht im AVIVA zugesagt haben!
