“3 Family Skiing trip - Feb half term 2013”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Simple basic & therefore relatively cheap hotel in Saalbach. Clean, simple accommodation. Sufficient breakfast (cereals / bread & toast cheese & meats as well as usual sweeter accompaniments)...one morning fresh rolls ran out but other than that ok. Shame no wifi or communal area and noise was apparent from the 'Underbar club' based in the basement of the block.
Neighbouring Alpen Hotel & Spa can be used for spa luxury at E39 per 5 hour day.

Room Tip: 2nd floor further away from the music (some of which was god & enjoyable evening can be spent in...

Think this is a Neilson exclusive hotel. 3 men in one of the larger rooms. Main bedroom with Austrian twin, another room with a double sofabed, tv. 2 balcony's. My mate has sleep apnea so putting him in the other room was ideal. Regardless that we payed very little for our holiday the decor was great, the shower probably the best i have had on any holiday (i will miss it). All fresh and clean. Breakfast was okayish. Music from Underbar was a bit loud but i use earplugs when away so wasnt obtrusive. Furniture was really new. Downside would be that the hotel is not THAT central but is still only five minute walk to any of the ski lifts. Basically dont hesitate to book this hotel as long as you dont want any frills.

Just arrived back from a week at hotel central. This hotel is very basic but great value for money. Staff were very nice and rooms were very clean and comfortable. For the price I can't fault this place.

There is a loud bar under the hotel but on the second floor we had no issue with it. In fact it was a lot of fun and had some beers in there. I didn't hear anyone complain about it.

We were looking for a 'value' holiday to a good resort and staying at the Hotel Central offered us this. The hotel is clean and functional, offering a buffet breakfast (standard continental) - other meals are easy to find as the hotel is very central and not far from anything else in town.

3 of us (adult friends) stayed in a 3-4 person room which was fine, but I wouldn't have been happy if there were 4 of us (2 singles, 1 double sofa bed). The 'room' is divided into a 'bedroom' with the Austrian twin (2xsingles stuck together) with an ensuite bathroom and a second room with TV, sofa bed, balcony. Plenty of storage space too, so altogether I would recommend if you aren't looking for luxury.

Room Tip: Rooms for 3-4 people are fine if you're good friends / family, but there is little privacy

The Hotel Central is well-situated and close to all amenities. We had a pleasant stay - the rooms are spotlessly clean, as well as comfortable (great pillows!). However, the standard double rooms are very small. Be sure to reserve one of the larger rooms with a balcony and extra bed.

Found the rooms and location first class and the staff friendly. Breakfast was continental style but very nice. Rooms were modern and cleaned daily. Bar downstairs was open late and seemed to be an exclusive haunt of local Danish expats. You can hear the music late but it's not intrusive especially if you enjoy the skiing and après ski as much as we did.

Hotel Central in Saalbach was basic and clean and no problem at all. I'm a light sleeper and our room was directly above the UnderBar and even the smokers were beneath our windows but I still had no problem with noise disturbance, just background muffled sound. Staff polite, friendly and helpful and Bobby's Bar across the road was a hoot! The Hotel is close to all lifts and slopes. Saalbach itself was wonderful, it's lively, fun and we are thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Something for all ages.
