Just returned from a stay at Chalet Gastein. Location is somewhat at distance from the city centre as well as the main station. As the bus service in Bad Gastein showed a lot room for improvement that was a challenge being on a skiing trip having to connect to the buses going to the various lifts every day as well as to the centre. OK for hiking trip in summer time.
The apartment was quite spacious (think the space could have been better distributed between rooms though) and had a really nice view. Quality of beds was mixed and disappointing. The kitchen was quite new and nice, whereas the kitchenware was a mixed bag: not a good fit with respect to user requirements as well as number of people living in the apartment.
Service was a mixed experience as well. Staff was generally friendly. However, we learned the first morning that breakfast could not be served before 8.00 in the morning (house rules we were told), which we felt were a bit late. Also, the heating system for ski boots only were turned on during the day, which was insufficient.
In total I would rate the place at 2.5 and not be likely to return when going back to Bad Gastein.More
