FAQs about hotels in Zell am See








Mountain Paradise in Salzburg Province

A paradise in the Austrian state of Salzburg, Zell am See is located along the shores of the Zell Lake and surrounded by mountains like the 2000-metre high Schmittenhöhe. It is an important ski centre in the winter and a hiking and mountain-biking paradise during summer.

The area has been occupied since Roman times, but the village was founded around the year 740 by the order of Bishop Johannes I of Salzburg. The picturesque Old Town includes typical Alpine style buildings, as well as the oldest building of the region, St. Hippolyte's Church. The Austrian area of Zell am See offers a wide range of hotels, B&B’s, apartments, and guest houses.

The leisure centre has a covered pool, a sauna and steam bath, and special facilities for kids. Zell am See is a gateway to the Hohe Tauern National Park, the biggest of the Alps and Austria’s oldest.

The nearby town of Kaprun is home to the 12th-century Kaprun Castle and the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. Salzburg Airport is 100 km away, while Sixt Innsbruck Airport is 150 km away. Whether  you’re searching for hotels in Zell am See with ski facilities, or a cosy ‘gasthaus’ with a garage for your bike, check out the variety available on Booking.com!

    Zell am See is a town on the route of the Transalpin train.

    Zell am See is a town on the route of the Transalpin train. We stayed for one night before our journey across the alps to Zurich. If you don't ski, there is little to do in town when it's cold outside besides a stroll along the beautiful lake and a visit to shops and restaurants. One 24-hour period was enough for us to see and do everything. The location of the train station made this a very easy place to visit.

    Zell am See didn't have the quaint alps village feel at all,...

    Zell am See didn't have the quaint alps village feel at all, more like a regular large town, the high street was very disappointing. The scenery of the lake and mountains was breath taking. Simply beautiful. Snow for skiing in Feb 24 was absolutely awful given the low altitude! A lot of mud patches on the lower runs rendering them unusable. I would consider elsewhere for skiing option tbh. The ski resort was small and good for beginners/families primarily. I felt very safe walking around the town.

    We loved Zell am See.

    We loved Zell am See. From the ease of getting here (the train from Salzburg is clean, quick and on time), to the scenery, beautiful town and great people. Everyone was pleasant to deal with, the facilities are excellent (although watch out for the supermarkets closing early compared to the UK) and the skiing is brilliant. Lift queues were generally short. However, as expected, everything is expensive!

    What I like the most: Friendly staff, free use of washing machine and dryer at the lobby, underground garage, spacious living room and fully equipped kitchen, near the lake for a leisure walk and near to town and near to a lot of ski lifts and cable car to Schmittenhöhe What I don like: nothing. Just be sure not to have a late check in so that you can seek for help before the reception close

    Zell am See is truly beautiful.

    Zell am See is truly beautiful. We had an amazing week of skiing with an excellent ski guide (Thomas Hager, https://www.alpin-guide.com/eng/), who added so much to our ski holiday experience. The town of Zell am See has an array of great restaurants, bars and shops. We travelled over the Christmas period and the place was festive with lots of Christmas spirit in the air! We would highly recommend a trip to Zell am See.

    Zell am See is a proper small town with a lovely pedestrian...

    Zell am See is a proper small town with a lovely pedestrian zone and not just a ski resort. It is located on one side of a beautiful lake, surrounded by mountains. There's a good choice of places to eat and drink and I particularly like the Gin House and Steinerwirt. I get the sense it's quite a good place for a mixed group of those who ski/snowboard and those who don't, but it's particularly good for skiers as there are several lift options from and around the town, so wherever you stay you'll probably be close to one of the base lifts. Accommodation on the hill just above the town will have great views and, provided you leave your equipment at a base station or have a car, the walk is quite pleasant.

    Awesome "hotel style" apartments in Zell Am See center. We walked to lift only around 10 mins in ski boots. Breakfast was really good - big choice of everything. I was happy every morning! Staff is very nice. I was worried about room size as I booked only standard one. It was big enough for 2 person.. not small at all, nice bathroom, great amenities and spotless clean. Also loved the pool and saunas! I think this place is actually underrated in reviews by some picky guest, really nice place to stay in Zell Am See. Higly recommend!!!

    Hotel was warm, very clean, sauna was great, breakfast and dinner offered a decent variety of food, staff at the restaurant were very friendly and welcoming. Supermarket just next door was very convenient. Big advantage was the ski rent facility inside the hotel itself, with very competitive prices and a very friendly, patient and kind mister from Australia managing the facility who is one of the reasons we might consider coming back next year again 🙂

    Me and my wife enjoyed a lot the stay at the Hotel Landhaus Zell am See, the staff is very kind and attended our requests and have a very good english level. The place offers great value for the price including the region's summer card and breakfast and for an extra there is a nice dinner menu at night which we recommend. The rooms are tidy and comfortable and offered all that was necessary for our stay. Free parking in the hotel.

    We arrived at 1pm and they allowed us for early check-in, which is a surprise. The room design was exceptional and comfortable. The dining area for breakfast and dinner was a surprise too, it's so beautiful. The breakfast was prepared in a nicely way and instantly increases your appetite. The view on the lake to the Zell am see city center was great also, especially at night when the lights on the other side are turned on.
