The service at this traditional hotel/wellness retreat (especially in the restaurant) was very good overall. Most of our food was delicious with a good selection of local wines, an excellent breakfast (squeezed juices & cooked egg dishes!) - all very efficiently served & presented. The room was quite comfortable (but no air-conditioning for those really hot days!) and the indoor...

Located in the Valley of Bad Gastein, this is one of the best hotels i've been in Austria. From Bad Gastein, this is the best hotel so far (previously I stayed at Alpenblick, Salzburger Hof and Gruner Baum) and Europaischer is by far the best. The amenities, pool restaurant are great indeed. Next time I visit Bad Gastein it will...

We stayed in this hotel for 1 week last year during the Fasching Ferien and were very happy with our holiday. Have booked again for the Fasching Ferien this year and was extremely diappointed to find on the invoice that an extra €150 will be 'Zahlbar vor Ort' for a Heringsschmaus meal on 05.03.14.
