Hotel Pension Unterbrau
Reviewed January 24, 2011

This is a very basic budget hotel. The rooms are 3m x 3m (9ftx9ft) with a very basic bathroom. One small wardrobe doesn't have enough room for two to unpack and there is nowhere to leave your bags. The shower is just a shower tray in the corner of the room with a plastic curtain on two sides. The public areas are just wide landings with a few bits of cold uncomfortable furniture. To be fair the breakfast is good but the evening meal like everything else is basic and cheap. The owner, whilst friendly, greets you with a list of rules but doesn't help to carry your bags up the many stairs.
A three star hotel it is not, just a place to lay your head for the night.
It is hard to understand the rave reviews, others staying at the same time as me agreed with my assessment. The owner appears to be a bit of an expert with a computer.

From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted by Marcus quite possibly the nicest man I've ever met! The hotel was absolutly perfect the food was incredible and in plentiful supply!!! The rooms were great, and all of the staff were very good, nothing was too much trouble. I would certainly recommend Unterbrau to anyone. Can't wait to come back and stay again soon!!

We arrived late on Saturday after dinner hours welcomed by Marcus offering us a meal after we'd had time to put our bags in our rooms. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them, the room was perfectly ammicable with a good shower after a hard day exploring the Austrian slopes. Finally, the food was superb, a choice of 2 excellent 3 course meals at the end of each day, we're definently coming back, thank you!

Just returned from a week at the Hotel Unterbrau and have to say that it's the best hotel i've ever stayed in, Awesome!!
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome, the food was outstanding and there was always plenty of it! Rooms were spotless and the service excellent.
It is well situated, just a short walk to the slopes.
Everyone was very friendly and i would recommend the Hotel Unterbrau to anyone planning a ski trip to this area. I certainly hope to return!!

Having arrived late I was greeted by Marcus (family owner) and despite the hour provided a hot meal. My room was a single room and well appointed, and spotless.

The meals provided were very good. Anyone looking to stay here should appreciate that this is a small family hotel and NOT a high class luxury establishment and the facilities and restaurant reflect this. The package provided by the tour operators at the Unterbrau provides great value for money. The location isexcellent and the owners and staff were always on hand and very helpful.

I would be more than happy to recommend this hotel to family and friends and would stay here again.

A friendly and clean hotel, lacking only tea/coffee making facilities and complimentary toiletries. However, Marcus is helpful and willing to provide refreshments on request. The food is aimed at providing energy for skiing, so plenty of pasta, potatoes and sausages. No complaints about the hotel and location as it was ideal for our first venture into skiing. It also had an impressive sauna which was much appreciated after a hard day on the slopes. The nursery slopes and equipment hire are a short walk from the hotel and there are several pleasant bars to relax and spend the evening in. Try the Gasthof Traubau just round the corner for a very tasty lunch. If you're looking for funfilled apres ski you may find this area a little quiet but it's only a 25 minute train ride to Kitbuhel where you'll find a leisure park and plenty of nightlife and shops.

From beginning to end Marcus and his family made us feel really welcome to the point where we went to visit him when we skiied in Soll on a different skiing holiday just to say hello !
The rooms were kept nice and clean and situated not to far from the Gondola station. The hotel was also situated in a really nice and traditional Austrian town, with all amenities not too far away. We would without a doubt stay at this hotel again and look forward to going back some time in the near future. Jenny & Andy
