“Wonderful!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

I usually write balanced reviews, mentioning at least something that can be ameliorated, but with the Rote Wand this will not work. The Rode Wand is a truly fabulous place to stay, and I cannot default it on anything really. It has (of course) everything one would expect from a four-star hotel (in terms of cleanliness, comfort, service, efficiency of staff etc. - @Julie we got free wifi in the room so maybe they addressed that since your review), but also SO much more. Owners and staff are incredibly friendly and professional, wellness and outdoor pool are perfect, and food is great - I'm generally not at all into five-course dinners, but Rote Wand's chef proved me wrong, with delicate and (sometimes surprisingly) imaginative combinations of ingredients. Setting is also fabulous - the tiny village (where in the early morning you will sometimes hear nothing other than the river Lech flowing and the birds waking each other up) has a good connection to Lech/Zürs and since this year even Warth (which had the best snow this April). On the way back, you can take the Weiße Ring which via the "33" itinerary from Madloch (north face and, despite being called 'itinerary', groomed every day when we were there this year) which ends 100m below the hotel (consider that last 100m climb-with-skiboots a stretching exercise!), and if there's enough snow on the other side (not the case this mid-April) you can ski back from the Balmalp as well, via the "49" itinerary, with practically no need to walk. The "33" is one of the nicest runs (and one of he quietest - you'll probably never see more than 10 persons during your descent) of all Lech/Zürs/Zug, and there is a nice off piste alternative (which you very well may have totally for yourself) to the left of it as well, of which the last part follows the Lech river to the start of the Zugerberg chairlift.

Currently, you can get on skis to Zug via the 2-person chairlift Seefopf-Madloch, and get up from Zug to Lech via the 2-person Zugerberg chairlift to the Balmalp (both, I suspect, built at least half a century ago, and indeed both rides require some patience). I was going to state as only negative point of the Rote Wand, that Zug should perhaps have a new, heated, fast, eight-person chairlift to the Madloch as well as to Balmalp, but on second thought, perhaps that would be the worst idea in terms of keeping the charm of Zug, and also the Rote Wand.

Rote Wand is well known for its excellent food, and people in Lech will drive the 3 km uphill to Zug, where this hotel is located right at the imposing, dark Red Wall Rock. One can see and taste why the owner is also a well-known chef and caterer in Formula 1. For all those who don't like the traditional wooden "Jodel" decoration in the Alps (like me), the modern contemporary design of "Rote Wand" is a very welcome soothing for the eyes. More of a boutique, design hotel, but still enough "Gemütlichkeit". Would personally prefer this place over the famous "Post" and "Schneider's" in Lech.

This was our seond stay at the Rotewand, and I agree with the sentiments of the other reviewers - this hotel is absolutely superb, the whole family loves it and longs to go back. We had a 2 room apartment, great layout, lots of space. Service is very good but not intrusive. The facilities in the hotel are very good, excellent gym, lovely saunas (4 different ones), warm outdoor pool, great sun terrace, great bar. The quality and presentation of the food at breakfast and dinner is excellent. Dinner is true fine dining, imaginative, interesting, multi-course, yet manages to avoid being pompous. The wine list includes a lot of really excellent and (in context of this being a great hotel in Austria) affordable Austrian wines.

Overall a very cool, trendy, chic place. Really should be kept a secret rather than talked about on Tripadvisor!

Room Tip: There are a variety of layouts, but they all seem nice. Some are in wings away from the main buildin...

Following a depressing stay in a tired St Anton hotel in January wanted something a bit more special. Came here on a recommendation of some friends. Everything was great, welcome, room, food, service, swimming pools, sauna and relaxation area - even the weather was amazing meaning we could sit on the terrace and on our balcony. Nothing was too much trouble. Only gripe is that you don't get free wifi in your room - this place isn't cheap so need to sort this out to be properly competitive.

Room Tip: If you have a small child who needs to sleep during dinner make sure you stay in a room in the main...

Rote Wand is a world class hotel and restaurant in Lech/Zug. This family run business deserves a star in Guide Michelin. The service is outstanding; the staff is warm and friendly and professional. The atmosphere is an excellent mix of traditional alp culture and modern spa life with an avant-garde design twist. Ski lift around the corner. We are Swedish travellers from Lund and have visited Rote Wand six times now and will certainly come back. Take the chance to experience this wonderful place. The only risk you take is getting addicted; you will always want to come back.

Hotel "Rote Wand" in Zug (not Lech!) is very nice Hotel-Complex, which does not look like a big Hotel. The Spa is excellent. Outdoor-pool in winter. You swim watched by snow-covered mountains. Rooms are modern, stylish and yet very cosy. Food is excellent, prices are what you would expect in a world class-ski-resort. You pay, but get value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Rote Wand is more than just a hotel. It is an establishment where everyone who comes here feels welcome and enjoys a sense of well-being. Day after day, as a matter of principle, we do our utmost to offer you that bit more than you can expect elsewhere. More service, more comfort and, above all, more heartiness. It is not only the people who are different here – the establishment itself is also somewhat different. First of all, you are greeted by the parent hotel which was built in 1651 (today's Rote Wand Inn), with its front coloured by the sun over the centuries and its red window shutters. From here, you enter the hotel and encounter its lovely, relaxed charm. The legendary “Rote Gang” underground tunnel leads you to all the other buildings, five in total. Despite its size – 132 beds in 50 rooms and suites – the Alpen Sport Resort has maintained its informal atmosphere. Despite this, the spa complex 1,500 m2 in size, with its fitness studio covering 300 m2, a spacious beauty and massage complex, six outdoor and indoor saunas as well as one indoor and one heated outdoor pool, is unparalleled even on the Arlberg. The Rote Wand family lodges, the junior suites, the hotel restaurant, the large sun terrace and the spacious Red Spa all have one thing in common: wherever you are in the Hotel Rote Wand in Lech, you are surrounded by pleasant, subtle luxury presented in local woods and a high-quality, contemporary interior. And since even a hotel such as the Rote Wand cannot offer everything it takes to make holidays in Lech unforgettable, as soon as you step out of the front door you are in the Zugertal, which simply cannot fail to entice you outdoors with its unique landscape and varied outdoor activities, whatever the season. ... more   less
