Vienna Region, Austria
Reviewed 30 September 2016

We spent a week in the Balance Hotel during the summer and were very disappointed. 1) The Parksuite was an outdated room facing towards the highway. No air-condition and too noisy to have the windows open. Tiny bathroom and not very appealing. 2) The food selection at breakfast and dinner was very limited. Also, if you do not finish your...

Dear Katinska! Thank you for your evaluation in detail. We are sorry, that you didn't enjoy the stay in our hotel. We always want to improve and are therefore open to criticism. Altough we can not understand the criticism at the restaurant, because our guests of course not have to eat under time pressure. We would like to refer to...

We went to the hotel after the renovation and were invited by Wörthersee Tourism. The hotel is very nice, relaxing SPA area, very good food, professional staff and a very good location above of Wörthersee!

The location is on hill - so you will have to walk for 10 minutes to get to the lake. But you have free bikes too. It is worth - rooms nice, nothing special, with balcony, superb sauna and relaxing room, faboulous restaurant!

The idea of staying here is to fully relax and leave in better balance with yourself and probably nature. Can't argue with that. After 3 days we are very relaxed! The family welcome, in fact the regular staff welcome is very good. Yes, the welcome talk was in German, and there're few English speaking guests (I think we are alone...

Dallas, Texas
Reviewed 27 July 2015

The hotel is nice but isolated up on a hill from town. The owner gave an hour talk to all who booked at the hotel--but was in German. Not sure what was going on. The food was very good, but took 1 1/2-2 hours. Not sure if I would go back. Not much to do here. Great for families.

What I liked the most about this hotel is that it is run by a family, who work really hard to maintain its decent level. I liked the element philosophy, too. Breakfast and dinner are really good (hotel has two Michelin stars), and personnel is super-friendly and helpful. We very much appreciate lovely service, which we got at our last...

Excellent hotel, spa and restaurant. A perfect mix of Austrian "Gemuetlichkeit" and high professionalism. A really relaxing place, with an amazing spa and an interesting restaurant ( with local food), almost sport activity you desire to do, a smart little town on the lake.

I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and chefs of the Balance hotel. We stayed for a week and dined and lived like royalty. Yes there are rail tracks between the hotel and sea, but you really don't notice it after a while. The area is nice if you have a car, but if, like us, you don't, you...
