The Stadt Wien is ideal for those looking for a really nice and peaceful hotel to go back to after the slopes close. The hotel's owners, Klaus and Christine, pride themselves on the excellent service from their very helpful staff.
There's a welcome mix of stylish design with crisp, clean lines and more traditional elements such as chunky wooden beams. This runs throughout the hotel making relaxing very easy here. The large bar and lounge all the comfy and colourful cushions to add to the contemporary feel.
You'll find the hotel on a gentle hillside above the resort centre so you have some pretty impressive views over the town, lake and surrounding forests. You're also very close to the speedy cityXpress gondola and the Abfahrt 16 blue run, so conditions permitting, you can ski straight up to the back door of the hotel!
The Stadt Wien has it all really - location, atmosphere, great décor, a fantastic spa and friendly, welcoming staff.
