Just returned from the Kristiana, we had an overall fab time. The hotel staff were very friendly but also very professional, (we were nicknamed Brad and Angelina on our first morning and were that for the week, very funny!)
The food, 6 courses if you could manage it, was exceptionally good, with a choice for main meal. Breakfast was a considerate 8 till 10 and even opened early on our day of departure.(6.30!) and was very good, lots of choice.Thank you, Alexandra, for looking after us very well!
The ski locker room was heated and clean, no smelly damp boots to greet you in the morning! Our room was a family room for just us two so was very spacious, with a small separate dressing/living area, also a balcony that ran right around the outside with chairs to relax in. It had a view to the piste under the Bernkogelbarn gondola, which incidently was only a few minutes walk from the hotel.
Everything was walking distance.. (hmm make that staggering..exeptional number of bars in saalbach!) In comparison to some ski resorts it was reasonably priced to eat out at lunchtime and do Apres.
The hotel bar was smoky. But so were a lot of places. In Austria it is left to individual places to decide whether to allow smoking or not. Not much you can do about that.
I would recommend this hotel unreservedly, it was spotlessly clean and well decorated. I emailed before we arrived to ask if they could supply bath robes, and had a reply that they would, and they were there when we arrived. I left a note asking for extra pillows and that was done too.
But for me, the cat made it. As said before,she owns the place! She rode the lift, lay on the reception desk, greeted you on the stairs with a prrr and loved attention.
Signing off..Brad and Ang!
for an small amount upgrade to a family room.
