“excellent view but definitely not value for money”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

breakfast buffet already empty at 8:30 in the morning and clearly below the standards of a four-star hotel with such prices; very poor internet connection: it never really worked; it was difficult to communicate with the waitresses in the restaurant because they could hardly speak/understand German or English. The did not even seem to know that the hotel has got an observatory on the fifth floor. The road that leads to the hotel is awful if it snows since nobody takes care of it (no salt nor gravel whatsoever..... just a small sign saying: keine Winterbetreuung). As result there is a lot of ice and you do not reach the hotel in winter if you do no have snow chains or a four wheel drive car. On the other side of the Gerlitzen mountain (Kanzelhöhe) the street is kept clean and we have never had problem. To get to the Pacheiner hotel we had a lot of troubles. We got stuck in the ice and snow even if we had winter tyre and a nice guy of the hotel had to tow us away to rescue us. The fact that the road is not taken care if should be clearly pointed out on the website. We paid extra for a room with a view and we got so much snow in front of the window that we could not see anything at all apart from a strip of sky.

The Pacheiner, run by the Pacheiner family, was the biggest and best surprise on our three week trip of southern Europe. The hotel has just been re-opened after a complete renovation. The old guesthouse and restaurant at the peak of the gerlitz alpe next to the Ossiacher Lake has been run by the family for generations. The latest generation has added a hotel of world-class standard. Combining clasical Austrian materials and style with perfect aesthetic minimalism.

Rooms are a real treat. Good space, great showers and breathtaking views. All of them with balcony or gaden terrace. There is an exquisite large sauna with a massive vista window.

The food at the hotel is great, and with its location on the mountain you will love dinners witha breathtaking view.

If you enjoy driving, the Gerlitzenalpesrasse, leading up to the hotel, has to be one of the funnest roads you will ever drive in the alps. But there is no need if you don't like it curvey, as the lift stops next to the hotel. So you can step on at the Ossiacher see and enjoy the ride from there.

There is nothing negative to add, check out my fotos for proof. Also, the hotel owners have put in a professional telescope and a local astronomer provides a short lecture and then operates the telescope and shows you the universe. Definatley worth it!

Stayed July 2013, travelled as a couple
