Simple, clean, comfortable room and bath. Very close to the center. However the restaurant wasn't really up to the task in the summer. Only cold buffet for breakfast and other than breakfast it was closed.

Our breakfast consists of 70-90 different servings of food every morning, including warm dishes; we are sorry to hear that they where not adequate presented, so that they could be found....

The hotel is about 20 minutes of a good hike from the train station, slightly away from the other hotels and shops but what you get in return is an amazing immersion in a winter wonderland. I let the photos speak for themselves. There's only one thing about the room (or it was just the lady next door). At 9pm,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Sonnwendhof enjoys a very quiet yet central location at the foot of the Hirschenkogel mountain, only a few metres away from the valley station of the Zauberberg Cable Car in the Semmering Ski Area. It offers a terrace self service café with panoramic views, and a sauna area with a relaxation room. A rich selection of cold meat, sausages and cheeses, as well as many different kinds of breads and a glass of prosecco await you at the rich breakfast buffet served in the Panorama Restaurant 08:00 - 10:30. From the ski slopes, you can get back directly to the hotel via a separate downhill run. The well-known Zauberbar, a bar, is just 150 metres away. The Sonnwendhof is also located on the hiking trail to the Hirschenkogel and Sonnwendstein mountains, and a mountain bike park is 150 metres from the property. The Semmering is located halfway between Vienna and Graz and is only a 1-hour drive away from Vienna. ... more   less
