A really nice little hotel in a great location with easy access to the ski bus station and local amenities. Be prepared to be woken every morning at 7 by the church bells which are very close by. Our room was above a noisy kitchen which wasn't the greatest but not to the extent it kept us awake. Service was generally good. I would recommend this to anyone as long as they were not staying as half board guests. Half board literally meant half measures and the dinner portions were so small they would not have fed a child. The food quality itself was great just a shame we had to go out for dinner afterwards as we were left so hungry after busy days on the slopes. Even the waiting staff looked kind of embarrassed when serving our food. Paying dinner guests on the night were treated very differently. No wifi either unless you wanted to pay 5 Euros a day. Shame as it really took the edge of an otherwise enjoyable stay.

While visiting friends in Zell we stayed at this hotel and found it well-kept with nice service, esp. the lady who served breakfast (Katrina?) who seemed unflappably pleasant, despite some imperious guests whose culture obviously allowed them to boss around "servants." Located right on the main (walking--no vehicles) street of Zell's tourist district--which is lovely--the hotel in midsummer was hot and noisy and had little privacy, since every window, including the bathroom, looked into another building close by. No air conditioning or fans (it was HOT in Zell at that time), but the rooms were comfortable and we had a tiny balcony overlooking the busy walking street. The town was flooded with Arab families looking for cool weather, and it was quite exotic and unexpected to have this Mideast flavor in this very Austrian ski town. Next time I'd choose a hotel more on the outskirts for more quiet (it was also World Cup week!), but the Feinschmeck was nice. Did not eat in restaurant other than the included breakfast, which was average. No wi-fi. Staff really tried to be helpful, but it did take an entire day to get an extra pillow or get the reading lamp bulb replaced--very annoying for a reader! Decent value for the price.

We were a little worried by some of the reports on this hotel but we had a great time. The rooms were spacious very clean and towels and linen was changed regularly. All the staff from check in to check out were very helpful and friendly. We were there on half board and the food was excellent. The restuarant was popular with locals which is always a good sign. I would certainly want to stay here again when we return to Zell.

We spent their our one night stop, during our trip in Austria. As Zell am See is well known and has many tourists during spring, I was searching many months beafaure to select a hotel. Feinschmeck was my final choice, as it had availability and I really liked their website, before visiting. The room was the most expensive from all I booked in Austria, as it wasover 100 Euros. This price was a little over by budget, but when we got there, I didn't regret. The room was big enough and had a perfect space like indoor balcony, where we could enjoy our coffee, watching the street, at our private in room table with two very confortable armchairs. Everything was very clean, it had a large bed and generally we really liked. The staff was friendly, but there was not all the time in the reception, but anyway we received any help we asked. We also took the half-board option (dinner meal) which was excellent, at their very warm and wellcoming restaurant, it was only for the price of 15 Euro per person (4 course/dishes menu we really enjoyed).
The Hotel locates at the center of the town, it's a 2 minutes walk to the lake side, and has all the shops and bars/cafes around. I would definately stay there again, and I have to say that it'a trully good choice, as Zell am See has probably much better Hotels but here you can get everything for a pleasant stay and you don't have to pay extraordinary ammounts as other places may ask for a double room

A brilliant hotel, the rooms were great, clean, warm.....and after checking in hotel staff called to the room to see if we required any further assistence...that was a first. The restraunt is excellent and a great atmosphere...busy in the evenings. The hotel staff were very helpful and very friendly...no extra charges all facilities were there to be used.......apparently the hotel changed ownership back in summer 2006.....and this is why the views about the hotel have changed dramatically. The location could not be anymore central and very easy to access to the slopes and ski school.
It is a gem.....you will not be disappointed....and I am fussy believe me

A group of 12 of us stayed in the Feinschmeck hotel in early January and could not find - not that we tried to - any fault with the hotel. The rooms were perfect, the breakfast lovely, the sauna area perfect and the location of the hotel ideal. The bed linen was changed mid week and fresh towels every day and no problem getting more if you needed them - and not at any extra charge - I would definitely stay again if travelling back to Zell Am See.
