Stayed here for our first ski trip to Austria (first ski trip to Europe, for that matter). Glad we chose Kitzbuhel. Lovely town. The hotel is situated on a hill, and town center is not really a practical walk from the hotel, especially in winter. But there is a shuttle during the day that makes the quick trip into town center. Other times, you can take a taxi for about 10 euro. Not cheap, but you're probably not staying at Schloss Lebenberg if you're trying to pinch pennies. The pool (indoors, several stories up) is one of the most spectacular pools you will ever swim in. Almost 50 meters long (not quite 50, though), stainless steel, with an "infinity" design. You have gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains. Great towels, shower facilities and et cetera. If you swim, stay at the Schloss Lebenberg if for no other reason than the pool. The staff was very friendly. You can rent skis at the tiny ski shop in the hotel, and then leave them every day at a shop near the Hannekam cable car (which is the one you'll use most of the time skiing Kitzbuhel). So you don't have to bother toting skis from the hotel to the slopes every day. The rooms are very nice and clean. The breakfast buffet was well done, with a very large selection. We ate at the restaurant one time. The service was very good. The food was average. Unfortunately, wi-fi was only available in the bar/dining area. The bar area is very nice. Kitzbuhel has some good restaurants and apres-ski options. It looks like they make a lot of snow at Kitzbuhel, and the weather can be sort of iffy. We came during a good snow year, but the skiing might not be as good during worse snow years. Would not come for the skiing. Rather, would come for the ambience and for the experience of skiing in Austria, one of the classic names in skiing, even though better and more reliable conditions are available elsewhere. Was fun to ski the Strief, the most famous downhill course in the world. We did have a problem with our room being too hot. Fortunately, we could open the door to the nice little balcony, and open the window (so got to hear the early morning bird chirping).
