“Excellent dining combined with modern clean central hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2011

We stayed here for a week for our honeymoon. We were on half board option. We were always looking forward to the dinner time. The food was superb, at least 3 course every time, sometimes even 4 course. There was a speciality everyday. We really liked the permesan cheese guy making pasta in front of you - delicious! (see attached pic)

Once we were late of breakfast and there was this relatively old waiter who prepared a table for us quickly. Overall excellent service.

I don't agree with another review that it looks outdated. The hotel is very much modern. The interior design is really interesting, some rugs may look worn but I liked the look. May be that's why the other review said that.

A few slight issues:
We came late and there was no food option at the bar or anywhere in the hotel.
We would have appreciated a warm soup or a sandwich prepared for us a few hours ago. That would be real luxury :)
There was no room service - not really needed.
There was no one to help with luggage - that was strange but I thought may be it's not the custom in Austria.

If I come for skiing in Saalbach or Hinterglemm, I will definitely stay here again.

This hotel has been completely rebuilt as a spa, with no expense spared.
It is very luxurious and comfortaable, with no expense spared in the new build.
There are indoor and outdoor pools, together with a leisure complex and spa treatments.
The service is personal, friendly and excellent.
It is exptremely clean.
During the summer season, it goes kosher under the supervision of Rabbi Schwartz of Vienna, but for the rest of teh year, it is a non-kosher luxury hotel.
It is right by the ski lifts and easy walking distance of the whole village.

This hotel is fantastic. It is conveniently located with only a two minute walk into the heart of the village and about a three minute walk to the nearest ski lift. The service is fantastic and the hotel very clean and modern. The food was lovely and the spa was one of the best I have been to.

Just returned from a week in the snow in Hinterglemm. The hotel is conveniently located and once there you can forget your car. Check in was good with a nice little welcome drink. Generally the facilities were of a high standard. Excellent indoor and outdoor pools. Restaurant and bar service were always friendly and efficient (albeit with a rather expensive drinks list...). The food was excellent. We were generally very happy with the hotel. The room was comfortable and modern however we felt oversold on the website. The website talks about either having panorama views or balcony. In reality our room had neither and felt very small, it didn't bother us though as we didn't spend much time in our room. Overall the hotel was comfortable, modern and is extremely well run with very friendly and helpful staff and excellent food. Would have no problem going back or recommending it to anyone.

The hotel were new renewed. The "old" Blumenhotel became the "new" Alpenkarawanserai. Very modern architecture, new furbished. The position is very good nearby the Reitkogel gondola and nearby a T-bar lift who brings you to the Westkogelbahn. So, if you like ski , the hotel it's a very good choice. I cannot say the same about the restaurant. Not the best food and I really didn't like the architecture of the restaurant with green glasses on the table (rented by the Mineral Water supplier.... :-( ).
The room are very nice - the Junior Suites.
Nice bar with a cosy chimney and delightful tea.
About the swimming pool - a small one, but instead very nice sauna area.
Overall : high class hotel with disappionting restaurant.

A truly special place - a beautiful mix of stylish modern design with traditional austrian hospitality, the hotel has a wonderful friendly atmosphere, with an exceptionally high level of service. From the moment I arrived, the staff could not've been more welcoming and attentive. And I absolutely loved the luxurious spa!

The food was well thought out, extremely good and beautifully presented.

My bedroom was fab and the views from my windows of the surrounding mountains stunning. The Alpen Karawanserai is perfectly situated in for both the skiing and evening and I couldn't recommend this hotel with its lovely attentive staff more highly ... I will definitely be going back!
