Staying at Haus Sonnwend in Alpbach, Austria

We loved it! Not only was the room great but the host (Gritti) did everything to make us feel at home at her house. It is not a hotel so do not expect a swimming pool, bell boy or a restaurant but that all is made-up for by the very nice rooms in this traditional Tyroler house and the great smile of Gritti. Almost all rooms have a private balcony and the front rooms are facing the village and Wiederberghorn mountain. Our room (I think it was room 26) had a twin-bed, small table, couch and private bathroom with shower. All rooms have self-controled heating and TV with satellite. Web-site : Haus Sonnwend. A simple but very good breakfast is served in the dinning-room downstairs (fruhstuck zimmer) with daily fresh bread, orange jus, local dried ham, tea, coffee, eggs, fruit and much more.

I booked the room via Agoda as being "Gasthof Schneider" located directly opposite of the church in the village. But we got a room in "Haus Sonnwend" just a 2min walk from the church. And actually better as the the dinning-room is there so you do not have to go outside for breakfast. The room was clean, almost brand new and of very good quality, especially the bathrooms. It is only 2min walking to the bus-stop that brings you to the ski-lifts of the nearby mountains. And it is also only 2min walking to the learning ski-lift of the village. Actually everything is max. 5 min walking as the village is so small.
