“Perfect. Loved every second of our stay here!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

The Hotel Montanara is a very special place run by a wonderful couple with very knowledgeable and attentive staff. We stayed over New Year's week with our two kids (ages 12 & 9) along with friends who stayed there for three weeks with their 10 year old. We all agreed that the Hotel Montanara is exceptional in every way. The location is perfect- directly across from the slopes and primary ski lift. The hotel and facilities are very clean, modern, well designed and beautifully decorated. The food and service is AMAZING. Honestly, we almost didn't want to post a review because we don't want the secret to get out about this perfect little hotel. Our family has travelled extensively and we all agreed this is our favorite place ever. The skiing in Flachau is wonderful but staying here made it even better. Fantastic and convenient ski storage area downstairs with heated boot racks, gorgeous and relaxing spa/steam/sauna area. Welcoming bar & wait staff, really friendly families also there that week. Just a perfect gorgeous week of family time. Our room was much larger than we thought it would be with plenty of storage for our three very large suitcases. The pull out sofa was large enough for both our kids to easily sleep together but they also provided a roll away bed so the kids wouldn't have to share (much appreciated!) our room overlooked the slope and we LOVED the atmosphere and the fun music from the après ski bar at the base of the slope, in fact we kept our windows open whenever possible so we could hear the music as we relaxed in the room before and after dinner. The free wifi was great and accessible everywhere in the hotel except the dining room which was perfect for keeping us off the devices to enjoy family time together. There were lots of young families and everyone seemed to be really enjoying the hotel. The young kids loved the magician/clown show the hotel arranged for New Year's Eve and the kids buffet each evening always had lots of great food options. We are definitely planning to return to Hotel Montanara......as soon and as often as possible! Thanks for an amazing week with memories we will always treasure.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family

I have skied in the Flachau area for 6 years and always wanted to treat myself to something a bit special. Hotel Montanara is exactly what is says, 'a 4 Star gastronomic experience', with excellent management, very experienced front of house and attentive restaurant waiting staff who were well appreciated by all guests. The quality of the food is excellent and inventive and I was always amazed at what was going to be served next. This hotel is not suited for families with small children though. There are excellent wellness areas and the rooms very comfortable. If you want to ski, eat until you are full, and relax, then this is for you. An excellent choice of wines from Austria as well.
I do NOT agree with the review from Skahecksk, that 'there are no pubs, not so much fun', that reviewer obviously did not bother to walk 10-15 minutes into the town! Well done Fam Hausbacher, and thank you.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the ski slope have a noisy apres-ski bar opposite, but even that closes at 2200 hrs...

Stayed 1 week with friends. Location across to skilift but Flachau is small of the smallest cities. No pubs, not so much fun.
Hotel staff polite, but zero understanding for families. Kids have to wait more then 1,5 hour for meal and even after speeding up, next day no change.
Chef cook definitely good but not logic for the winter tourists. Seems like someone is chasing Micheline stars at the place where you would more expect honest real service prior hi class snobish way of serving the food with royalty timeless requirements.
Hotel is not good for families with kids. Value for money spent is not equal.
The big value is the free parking, polite staff, nice rooms.
