“Great food in Wonderful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Dined in the conservatory section of this attractive hotel while on a recent ski holiday in the area. We choose this restaurant as we noticed that it was a full venue for evening dining every night of the week and we were not dissapointed! The waiter suggested the mixed grill platter to share between two and my sons were awestruck when it arrived with chicken,pork,steak and several Austrian specialities which delighted their palates and made for a great talking point. I choose the pike perch option which was beautifulycooked and accompanied by veg in season.The tablepieces were little nutcracker figurines and the room was lit by a magnificent chandelier suspended from the glass roof of a well designed conservatory looking on to a plaza lit by twinkling fir trees. Our waiter was very professional and brought along another waiter with more fluent English to explain the ingredients in the Austrian dishes. Overall it was a great meal enjoyed in a wonderful setting.

We - a group of 9 people spend 4 nights in January for skiing. Very central location. Ski bus stops just over the street. It takes a 5 minute walk to the ski lift.
Terrific breakfast buffet. Dinner was very nice too. Service is outstanding, staff is very friendly and helpful
Great room. Very special. We felt very comfortable. Quality of bed is very good.

Very glad we chose to stay here; no evidence of "package tourism" groups, and it's clear that the dining room and the bar are used for real by the locals.

The classic room we stayed in was very dated but clean. The menu for evening meal which we had to fill in at breakfast was in German with no translation but when we pointed this out we got a translation for the rest of our stay. A large party arrived on our second day and all the buffet salad was eaten by them. The bells start at 6am but you do get used to them.
Most of the staff were very friendly.
Very nice undercover sitting area. Not sure about the spa - no one really told us anything about what was available,all info was in German. No information was available in our room, and we were charged 5 euros for internet which we did not connect to.

Room Tip: Rooms at the church side have a good balcony. Better not choosing a classic room

Four English riders used this as an overnight transit hotel before riding the nearby Gross Glockner into the Dolomites. It was easy to find, picturesque, comfortable and we were made very welcome. The waitresses (seemingly in national costume) were charming. We ate in the hotel having asked another diner what they were eating - and the food was excellent. Rooms were very good. We loved it. A shame we were only staying for one night. They even went out of their way to create room for our bikes to park right by the side door!

The hotel was a very positive surprice: We were 3 generations, the rooms exelent, the spasuite a little disapointing (no spa). 5-7 courses dinner, served at Your table, Effiient waiters. Breakfast was excellent, sometimes with Prosecco, included freshl made eggdishes, smoked salman and "everything You can think of.
I checked Erwins review, disagree completely. The hotel was dominated by danes.
Erwins review shows that his travelling experience is very limited.

We booked this hotel as we wanted to be close to the center & skiing area and yes, there is one positive side with this hotel: the location.

The rest I can not really recommend:

1) The room:
wasn't tidy! The roomservice was unprofessional. Positiv: the room was not used up. New furniture and a modern bathroom...

2) Owners & personal…
Looks like they prefer Germans and Italians…as we're not from any of these countries, we did not feel we were very welcome to stay. In addition they gave us no information were we can park our car etc…

3) Dinner/breakfast....
Dinner was ok but not 4 star!! The breakfast table so far was boring. Every day the same... fruit salad was not refilled...

4) Value…
They charge too much…ok, it has a great location in the centre, the hotel was renovated but that's it!…We visited several others hotel during our stay and I can tell you that most of the other ones have even better location & better rates…

This list goes just on & on…What I'm trying to say:
Mariaalm is a good location for little children & skiing. I'f you're looking for a great stay in Mariaalm, avoid this hotel and look for another one with much better value...
