Stayed for a week in february. Lots of snow, good skiing conditions but simply too crowded on the slopes. If you are going for a skiing vacation in Bad Gastein try to avoid the weeks 7, 8 and 9, where for instance the Danes and the Swedes have school holidays for the winterbreak.
Accomodation is pretty basic and the location is pretty much off the center of the city, which will take you 15 to 20 minutes by walking. The route to the little hotel parking space is narrow, steep and in winter conditions very icey, so to be on the safe side bring your snowchains for your vehicle to be able to make the clime up to the hotel.
We were four persons and had a five persons appartment, glad we weren´t five! The equipment for cooking and dining leaves lots of space for improvement, and even for four people the space was tiny and the bathroom very small.
The best thing about the Chalet Gastein is the staff very serviceminden and very helpful.
Skiing area in Bad Gastein and Bad Hofgastein is very good if not this crowded, but best skiing while we were there was absolutely in Sportsgastein.
There are some options for the after skiing, but again to many danish high school students around in week 7. Skibus stop is wthin five minutes of walking distance.

I can start with the route to this hotel. Disaster ! Do not bother to go to this place with some nice car. You will ruin it, does not matter wether there is spring or winter. Parking area in front of the hotel is only for like 12 cars, so if the hotel is full, it is a big problem, because last two or three cars simply cannot go anywhere (my personal experience). I did not expect Ritz, but rooms for 5 people ? Ok can be. Bed for two people with size like 140 cm ? That is too much. Bathroom ? I was happy to see it working. Old, very old. I hated taking a shower there. Yes, staff was friendly, food ok, plenty of space downstairs, lots of entertainment, games, music, everything. If you are here only for skying and you do not care where you sleep, perfect. If you are tired after whole day and you want to take hot shower, and sit on comfortable bed with ambiente lights in the room, try something else.

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.

Bad Gastein is really a small town and Chalet Gastein is a good place to stay. Warm and comfortable is not easy to find though. Owner is young and efficient, he love sport and mountains. Room for 8 is huge and with everything you need. Bus stop close enough but on the way back it's a bit uphill.Bring a car equipped for really low temperatures. Snow is wonderful especially for snowboarders.

We went to Chalet Gastein in January 2011 and we had no expectations at all. We just booked a cheap hotel. As soon as we arrived we found out that the staff were very service minded and really caring for their guests. We were told that every day we would get breakfast and a three course dinner and that it was all included in the price. This we had no information about when we did our booking and the food was amazingly good. The staff gave us loads of information and we were also invited to go on an off-pist tour. This tour made the visit even better. The hotel is not situated directly at the lift but the bus stop is close and it takes 5-10 minutes to get there. The rooms are what you can expect of a two star hotel but we can really recommend this place because it is cheap, the food is great and the staff gives probably the best service you can imagine. Thanks Chalet Gastein it was great here./Peter and Fredrik from Sweden
