    This is a quaint hotel in an old building which gives a special feeling stayng there. It is right by the main street in Bad Gastein and close to most things but pls remember that its hilly and uphill is quite steep. Very excellent breakfast (not buffet but served) included and price value ratio is excellent!

    The windows in the bedrooms probably need renovating. Not double glazed.

    The Hotel has a quaint old style feel to it which was really nice. Breakfast was more than adequate with no complaints whatsoever. Although only one breakfast waiter(ess) each day, there was no waiting time. The restaurant was excellent. The staff all very friendly and informative Was a pleasure to stay here and we would most certainly go back again

    We were really looking forward to visiting Bad Gastein. We were expecting it to be a highlight of our tour of the Salzburg region, but it was the biggest disappointment. Many of the buildings are abandoned and run down. The winter ski season was drawing to an end. The city is still beautiful and historical, but it lacks vibrancy and people! We were the only guests at the hotel. The hotel was the most expensive out of all the hotels we stayed at while in Austria, and we mostly do 5 star.

    food and service at the restaurant was quite good.

    Everything was perfect ! Thank you so much

    Luxury castle feeling with all the modern comfort, very charming place with a lot of character. Amazing views over the whole valley and the waterfall. The owners welcome and make you feel like home from the very first moment. I particularly loved the common areas, with fireplace, old paintings, comfortable sofas. The restaurant (part of which is also used for breakfast, with views over the valley) is a great place to spend the evening, all staff is extremely nice. The room was big and all in wood, very very cute. The villa is very quiet, there are only a few rooms, one can easily spend all day inside. It's an unique place. Strongly recommended. Will definitely be back.

    It's difficult to get around Bad Gastein, it's a very hilly town, so can be v. Tiring. But this is not a criticism ofVilla Solitude, just a general comment on the town.

    The food, the building and the staff were all excellent. I would highly recommend it.

    This was our second time at the villa and we love the place, the rooms are very spacious and have old world charm, the pictures off the rooms are very accurate, this time we were there during off season and had the entire place to ourselves, side note that if you are there in the off season, the town is very much on the quiet side so don't expect to much in activity. Iris was a great host. We arrived at 4 and were hungry but not much was open until dinner so she was kind enough to serve us her homemade strudel and coffee in the sitting area which was delicious, we will be back again

    Very nice bath tub but a fixed shower head placed higher up, instead of one limited by the length of the flexible hose pipe, would have made it just perfect.

    Rooms were clean and well kept. Beds were very comfortable. Staff were very helpful and efficient. Wonderful view from our room. Very nice fresh buffet breakfast placed next to each table. We ate out with friends most evenings but the one night that we dined in, the food was excellent. We had the pleasure of meeting the Director but did find him under our bed one evening (he has 4 legs and weighs about 5kgs).

    The only place the wi-fi worked in our room was right by the door

    We stayed over the Christmas holidays and booked this hotel as it was one of the few still open (planned the trip mid-Nov). What a lucky surprise! Our room was huge with a separate sitting area and a bathroom with a large bathtub. There were amazing views over the town from the many windows. The location is in town and within a 5-10 minute walk of most everything. The breakfast was very good and the staff is friendly and helpful.
