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.

    The hotel is nice and clean. The location is great by the lake and in walking distance from the center and the train station. There is also a bus stop of the free ski bus to Zell am See and Kaprun around 500 meters from the hotel. The staff is extremely nice and help you with everything, so just ask if you need some information about the area; skiing, rental equipments, hiking, eating, anything! Breakfast was also great. I would recommend this hotel for short or longterm stay.

    The room was very cozy with a nice view of the old church. The space was perfectly adequate. I was a bit worried as a couple of reviewers had complained about train noise. However, I found that the trains were not very frequent, not that noisy and it lasted only for a moment. In sum, it was considerably less noisy than the average city hotel on a street. In any case, they supply ear plugs for all. Perfect location on the lake.

    A gorgeous and modern hotel complete with a sauna in the room! It was a very pleasant stay and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. It was an absolute bonus to be given access to so many unique offers and activities in the region such as a boat ride on Zell am See and a hike through Sigmund-Thun-Klamm. They even gave us a little gift which included 2 bottles of water for our journey home which was very thoughtful!

    One of the best Hotels in Zell am See. The Spa facilities are outstanding. I am not sure that any other hotel in Zell am See even closely has something similar for the price. During our stay we have also visited two other popular hotels - Hotel Gruner Baum and Grand Hotel. Both of them cannot even remotely compare to Haidvogl. Additionally one has to mention the exceptionally friendly staff. And it is very clean.
