Falkensteiner Club Funimation Katschberg
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Rennweg
Reviewed August 9, 2011

We stayed at the Club funimation hotel during the first week of August 2011 and we had a very nice time.
The hotel is situated in a very nice place, with a lot of trekking paths reachable on foot or through a short drive.

The hotel provides plenty of services for family with children over 3-years old, for children and parents alike. During high season it gets a bit crowded but as a father I did not care too much, as long as I knew that my son was having fun. The swimming pool is very nice, with its very long slide; also the super-small pool for babies is fun, my 9-month old daughter enjoyed it a lot. The sauna and the massage center was also very nice.

The hotel, however, suffers from some significant but not major shortcomings: first of all the lack of surveillances, esepcially in the children pool. The absence of a swimguard was a problem, with unsupervised kids and teenager adopting very dangerous behavior that could put at risk smaller kids.
The other negative aspect concerns the buffet: the food is good, but it is basically always the same. Some more varieties on the pasta and meat stations would help.

Our rooms were very small, but with all the services provided in the hotel and trekking opportunities around the hotel, we spend very little time in it; moreover, given the price, it was a good quality/price combination. The biggest problem was the high temperature at night that affected the sleep quality.

We spend two days in this hotel with my family. We decided to stay there after our previous very nice stay in Cristallo Falkensteiner hotel that is close to Funimation. For some reason I thought that Funimation will be bigger, better, with more fun for my kids. Unfortunately it was not the case. I think that everyone, who wishes to stay in this hotel, should properly think if it is right hotel for him, otherwise he gets mad after few hours spent there.
The hotel is huge. You can not feel there as a welcomed guest, you feel just as anonymous person in the crowd that has to wait long time until someone takes care of while many kids are running around, yelling, jumping, crying. That was first impression and unfortunatelly the whole our stay (fortunatelly short) went this way. The restaurant is terrible. You have just two options- squeeze yourself and your kids with another family with another yelling kids around one table where is not any space. After while you are surrounded with plenty of dirty plates that nobody takes away because waiters are always busy. Another option- you can wait for the moment when the family you are supposed to share the table with finally leaves and you can have the dinner (better what was left in buffet) on the dirty table full of plates. You can not hear single word due to permanent noise, so you are happy when you leave the restaurant.
Swimming pool is nice but again- crowded and noisy.
Actually all parts of hotels should be good and reasonably nice (especially room was really nice) but only if the hotel accommodate less then, let say 30% of guest they use to have. Considering the fact that we stayed there in very low season.....I would not wish to be there during school holidays at all.
So, if you don’t mind noise, yelling kids in every place except of your own room (maybe also there :-)), if you don’t mind to eat the way I described above and then to swim with your kids in pool where every minute someone kick you under the water, then it is right hotel for you. Otherwise, don’t go there

We just spent a week in this hotel - it is perfect for a family ski vacation. Very good spa, restaurant (buffet) and friendly personnel. Generally - good value for money!

We stayed in the Katschberg backin July, and can confirm the club is fabulous for young children. Ranging from a fully equipped play room over a climbing wall, and multiple pools .... everything is really build up to please young children (age 3 - 10).
The Katschberg mountain is great for taking a relaxing walk, while the Pöllatal gives furthermore a lot of possibilities for easy hiking with the family.
One negative point is the organisation of the restaurant, where families are being dropped together at one table .... so no privacy and cosy dinner experiences to expect in this hotel.

stayed on a 3 night package full board in the new double bedroom. Bedroom was very small compared to other 4* stars but was fine for us, facilities were outstanding, swimming, spa facilities, mountain biking, hiking, archery, etc

Food was the best we ever had on board basis. Evening meal was outstanding and the free wine (not very good) and free beer with your meal and extra bonus.

would highly recommend this hotel to both couples & families.

Excellent for families and skiing. You exit from the third floor put on your skies and go for it, so your children and they're taken care of after skiing. The spa is excellent. The service is corteous. The cleaning is kind of hasty, they won't order the room and will vacuum it in about 2 min., I didn't mind. The food is very abundant and fresh, but tasteless, at least on our experience.
Altogether we're very satisfied.
