“Never been in such a place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

We visited this gasthouse or appartment hotel...or what can you call this. I have never in my 45 years been in such a place! Not even in my student low-budget days. Even on my Interrail hostels back in early 90's were in better shape. This was probably 3 star place in the 70's, but nobody has done nothing after that. Not even bothered to get new pans or scoops. The selection of tablewear was lacking lots of the basics. The coffee machine and microwave were maybe the cheapest you can find, and the latter didn't seem heathly... It was really difficult to cook for my family. The whole appartment was smelling and full of smoke cause the kitchen hood didn't work properly.

The bed pillows and blankets were bought in the 70's and used million times. The furniture is from the 70's and barely stayed together. The shower was really small and dirty. The good part was that there was running hot and cold water.

The only good thing in this place was the location pretty near the old town, the shops and restaurants. The distance to Hahnenkamm skilifts is not to walk with skiing boots, but you can easily leave your equipment at the lifts.

I was here in February with my boyfriend! It was amazing!!!
The apartement was really nice with a beautyful view over the mountains and the center of Kitzbuhel.

The little but nice kitchen was perfect to make our own meal. The whole apartement was very clean. The reception wasn´t allways occupied but if there was something we, there was a telephone to ring a number.
There were many restaurants and shops in walking distance. This was really amazing, so we have made a short walk every evening.

If you want to make favorable holiday in Kitzbühel the apartement Kolping is just right.

This is without doubt the worst apartment I've ever stayed in. There were 4 people in our party and when we arrived we were given a 2 bedroom apartment with 4 single beds and a couch bed which is what we expected.

However they realized they made a mistake when the 6 people who had reserved our room arrived. Apparently it was the only 2 bedroom apartment. We were asked to leave the apartment with just a Pizza as offer of compensation and were given a tiny apartment with a corner (not a bedroom) where 2 beds were separated 2 feet apart and the 2 feet between the beds was the only space to move and change in what they called a bedroom.

Next problem was that the other 2 people in our party had to sleep on a filthy couch bed that was uncomfortable as well. My skin still has spots and is still itching a week after leaving this horrible place.

After endless arguing with the Manager, Cleaner and whomever else we were finally given a key to another 1 bedroom apartment which had 4 single beds in the bedroom and a couch bed.
We had a look around and agreed to take it but at the last minute the key was taken away saying they made a mistake and that room had already been booked as well. Completely incompetent people running this place.

From the next morning onwards we never saw the manager or receptionist for the rest of the week until the following Saturday until it was time to reclaim our €100 deposit for the key to the apartment.

We found out that if you book a 3-4 bed apartment then you get 2 single beds and a couch bed. If you book a 5-6 bed apartment then you get 4 single beds and a couch bed. In all cases someone has to sleep on a filthy and un-comfortable couch bed.

The only 2 good things I can say about this place is the location near the center of town and the view from the balcony.

Otherwise this place is cheap, filthy with no customer service and I will never stay here again.

I stayed here in January with my boyfriend. We had an amazing view of the village of Kitzbuhel and the mountains from our balcony. The room was warm and cozy when we got in each evening and the bed was comfortable. Lovely and quiet spot!

The kitchenette had everything we needed to make up breakfasts and evening meals, but there were plenty of restaurants nearby so we were able to eat out also. Within walking distance of us was a shop, bar, bank, Thai and Chinese and other restaurants, pharmacy and 2 mins from the main street. The was a ski bus 2 mins from the apartments that serviced all the main Gondolas, but we managed to walk it most mornings, it took about 10mins.

The Aqua arena was also 10mins walk, and offered 50% off with your lift pass.

The ski room was perfect and all our gear was stored safely, and was always dry by the next morning!

The reception desk wasn't always open but there was a phone to ring if we required anything.

The shower was excellent, a pleasant surprise from some ski self catering places I've stayed in previously.

If you want a cheap and cheerful way to see Kitzbuhel, this is the way to go!

Room Tip: Room with a view!
