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...

Fantastic holiday location for any season. Stunning outlook. Great looking hotel. However what makes the Excelsior absolutely brilliant are the owners Johanna and Christof. They are perfect hosts who know how to run a hotel. Staff are very professional. The service is exceptional, headed up at all times by a very attentive Christof who is happy giving advice on the...

it was like stepping back in time arriving in Villa Excelsior! Classical music accompanied our every step! Beautiful antique furnishings and decor added to the atmosphere. Staff were gentle, polite and super efficient. Breakfast was lovely and dinners were incredible value! Stunning views from the top floor bedrooms windows.
