Alpenhotel Dachstein
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Bad Goisern
Reviewed 9 March 2014

The hotel consists of two large buildings linked by the restaurants on the ground floor. The whole complex was built over a couple of years in the mid 1970's. I am not sure exactly how this works but part of the hotel has been sold off as holiday apartments. I don't know if this involves isolated rooms, entire floors or whatever. This has some surprising consequences - the Ski Room is basically a museum with boots and skis dating back 40 years. The hotel obviously has no idea which equipment belongs to which apartment so nothing gets thrown away and there is virtually no room for visitors' equipment.
Several regular guests/apartment owners where there when we were, people who have been coming there for years.
Bad Goisern has a railway station and I believe the hotel runs a minibus down to the village and back a few times a day at fixed times. Another reviewer said it is a 25 minute walk down to the village and Google Maps pretty much agrees, the road winds through the trees. There is no through-traffic, just 20 or so other houses spread out below the hotel. That isolation is either a reason to go there or a reason not to, depending on your preferences.

The food was decent going on good.
WLAN is available near the reception, unfortunately so is the smoking area and it is too close to the restaurant. There was traditional (?) Austrian live music in the evenings. One of the guests grabbed his guitar and joined in one evening, then the woman who runs the place got behind a microphone and started singing.

The furnishing dates back to when the hotel was built but seems to be maintained very well, I have seen much worse. The TV was a lot newer. The rooms are spacious, I'd guess mine as 30-35 square metres + a balcony. My room faced towards the hill/woods, others faced across the valley.

One of the other reviews complains about the water temperature in the pool, that was not a problem when I was there.

I can't comment on "value" because this was part of a package.

Room Tip: If you want a view, ask for one. I'd tend to want to be on the second floor or higher.

Reviewed 5 June 2011

We stayed there for four days and loved it. It's a gentle 25-walk down to the town through a dense forest. The hotel has fabulous views from the mountains-facing balconies. It's quiet and deeply relaxing. Rooms and are well-equipped and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. We met some other guests who have been coming here for 30 years! However the decor is a bit tired and needs renewing.
