Hotel Weismayr
Ranked #32 of 36 Hotels in Bad Gastein
Reviewed 20 January 2013

This hotel is nothing like advertised on the website. It is caught in a time warp around 1940's. It may have been 3 star then but only 1 star now. It is tired and shabby, all furnishings are worn and need replacing.The room my son and I had, did not even have a door to the shower area just a curtain separating the bedroom from a sink and shower area. The reception staff were not very pleasant, just businesslike, no point asking them for information about the area. We chose this hotel from the tour operators website. It was not cheap-it was sold as a 3 star hotel. It did not live it up to its website image and I would recommend not choosing it. It is neither value for money or comfortable.

Room Tip: corner room very small and basic

Old hotel, not best maintained. But for the price you pay you can't expect much more. The evening meal and the (Hungarian) restaurant service is very good. That's it. The hotel is not maintained, especially the bath rooms. There is not a lot of staff in the hotel visible.
The beds for the parents were new and the shower hot and good.

We enjoyed our stay at Weismayr it will be one hotel that will stay with us for its uniquness and soo not generic style.At times it was like faulty towers Austrian style in a positive way.We found all the staff efficient and dealt with our needs.The location was great near the waterfall and night life.Our room was large,clean and beds comfortable.The food was acceptable but got tiring by the end of the week.
One request would be a bar person at the bar in the evening.I loved the fact there was no tv and cnn it was a real break from all of that.

As the tour guide said you will really love it or hate it.I am in the I love it camp !

This hotel was very poor in so many ways. The shower didn't work properly, there was no hot water after mid-morning, the half-board dinner menu was overdependent on pork and chicken dishes; both internally and externally, this hotel desperately needed substantial re-decoration. Uniquely, this hotel did not have its own lounge bar - the sublet corner cafe could not charge drinks to guests' rooms and it shut at 9.00pm. Above all, there was the feeling that the staff - especially reception - simply didn't care at all about their customers' well-being. All in all, a perfect example of the sharp distinction to be drawn between a cheap hotel and a 'value for money' one.

The evening meal and the (Hungarian) restaurant service is very good. That's it.
The hotel is not maintained, especially the bath rooms, as to the cleaning you don't feel that you are in Austria, the hotel is heavily under-staffed, invisable management (if there is a management) and you don't feel that you are welcome.
The management there has totally forgotten who's providing the income, unless they plan to close down very soon.
Weismayr is not a good ambassador of BadGastein.

I went on a skiing holiday and stayed here last week. I found the service in the hotel to be excellent. I know many have complained about the food, however, as a vegetarian I was pleasantly surprised. Most places I have stayed at in Europe cater very little to vegetarians. I had a varied dinner every night (my partner & I took the half board package) and we both thoroughly enjoyed the meals provided. I had an issue with the temperature in our room being a touch chilly, I spoke with reception and they immediately provided an additional heater which made it perfect. The beds were lovely and comfortable - although it is hard to tell whether it was that or the exhaustion from the skiing every day which meant we slept so well. As others have noted, there was a lack of a shower curtain in the bathroom, but the bath was of a larger size which compensated, with plenty of hot water. Our room had a phone, refrigerator, hairdryer, security safe, soaps etc etc. The location is a touch away from the main ski lifts, but close to nightlife and the casino. The ski bus service located near the hotel is erratic but workable. The hotel itself is very old, but it is charming - I am one who quite likes faded grandeur. It has certainly been maintained. I found my biggest issues during my stay were actually concerning the other guests - especially those who would persist in barging in the side door overtaking everyone to try and put their ski gear in the ski room. The pool area is lovely, and the warm thermal water is wonderful to dip into after a day skiing. My partner certainly enjoyed the sauna facilities. What would improve the hotel would be a wi-fi internet service in the piano bar area. At the minute free internet is offered via a single laptop on the desk at reception. All in all I felt the hotel was good value for money.

I could recommend this hotel if you are on a budget and compare it with 2-star hotels and pensions. Not if you are looking for a good 4-star hotel.

Weismayr does not offer the service and facilities you should find in a 4-star hotel, and the information given on the travel agent's website was not entirely correct (Snowtrex). False marketing is not acceptable and somebody ought to sue them. Nevertheless, the most important things for a good ski-holiday were to our liking: a good night's sleep, a good bathroom and a good breakfast. And the price was ok.

Some bad points:
- Uneven standard
- Reception only open 7 am -11 pm.
- Bar never open
- Some guests are placed in a cold apartment building next door (150 m up a slippery slope)
- Our room had no telephone, no hairdryer, no cable-TV, no mini-bar, no coffee-maker, no soap (we got a hairdryer when we asked for it).
- Very old building with several eyesores (kind of charming?)
- No chairs on balcony
- The radiator in our room broke down the first night (woke up in the middle of the night freezing - the rest of the week our room was warm and nice)

Some good points:
- very large room with good beds (medium hard)
- large bathroom (no shower curtain though)
- central location close to the famous waterfall (you must take a bus to the ski-lift)
- good breakfast (by ski-resort standard in this price range)
- good coffee (Scandinavian style)
- dinner well prepared, but very boring (same dessert every night)
- professional and friendly staff in restaurant
- some pretty nice public areas: spa, dining-room, lounge
