At the and of The Valley, but whitin walking distance of the Old Town a Nice and warm welcome. Rooms slightly outdated; but that's the whole point! Classic and traditional "Family-hotel". Price-Quality in perfect harmony.

We spent a wonderful evening at Excelsior in Sept 2016. The owners have done a good job in creating a Belle Epoch nostalgic atmosphere, with lots of antiques, and period touches. The breakfast and dinner were both very good both in value and quality. We loved the gentleman who checked us in, as well as the two waiters in the... More

An excellent hotel with very good staff. We were disappointed to find some of the grand hotels in Bad Gastein to be boarded up, but their heyday was probably over a hundred years ago. However in Villa Excelsior you find an old building with traditional high levels of service match with modern facilities

We stayed here in early June and were blown away by everything-the room, the view, food and hospitality. The beautiful 19th century mansion was filled with antiques and lovingly cared for by our hosts, Christof and Johanna. The food was delicious, the rooms spacious, bed very comfortable. We had a beautiful view from our balcony of the town below, surrounded... More

We stayed in this charming hotel for Easter with friends for skiing holiday. The interior of the place dates back to the early 1900 when the hotel was established, and one can still feel the spirit of Sigmund Freud and other intellectuals who stayed at this beautifully and elegantly decorated hotel. Our room was spacious for 3 persons with a... More

Spent a week in the middle of march on ski vacation. Nice, cozy and friendly hotel located 10-15 min walk from the center of Bad Gastein. Manager/personnel did their work perfectly. Rooms were cleaned every day. Breakfast similiar each day but qualitative. Dinner/supper met expectations each day, was different and tasty. Hotel has a minibus that shuttle to the stubnerkogel...

Staying at the Hôtel & Kurhaus Excelsior is to time travel to an epoch with elegance and etiquette, my husband and I loved it. We stayed three nights over Christmas and were impressed by the host, Christof's, dedication to restore the villa to its 19th century glory. Dinner, included in the price of the room, was delicious and the staff... More

Everything was perfect: location, room, the view, the food, the staff, the owners. A very good quality price value. The baths with thermal water end radon were very pleasant, relaxing and useful health. Thank you for this wonderful holiday.

What an amazing gem in Bad Gastein! We stayed here on a recommendation of friends and so glad that we did. Room was large and clean. Christof invited us to try having dinner in the restaurant on the first floor and we loved it. Just like going back in time; old-fashioned elegance and charm and delicious food. Can't say enough...
