Falkensteiner Schlosshotel Velden
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2017 via mobile

I was fortunate enough to stay at the Falkensteiner Schlosshotel in Velden during a Mercedes-Benz launch event of the X Class Pickup. The Hotel is Stunning and had gone to extraordinary lengths to accommodate us all during the duration of the event.

The staff could not do enough for us. They coped superbly with the constant waves of new visitors changing on a daily basis.

Having seen the video of how the event was put together, it is clear that the hotel had to make a few changes in their usual way they operate this premium hotel. Well done for allowing it to take place. Everyone I spoke to was delighted with the experience.

The hotel is set in a stunning location with wonderful views over the water and surrounding mountains.

I would love to return to the hotel in the future to experience it without the corporate backdrop. I am sure that it will deliver on all fronts and exceed my expectations further.

This was the last hotel we stayed at on our bicycling trip in Slovenia, Italy, and Austria. It is billed as a 5 star hotel and perhaps it checks all the technical requirements but it was not my favorite. First was trying to figure out the technology associated with turning on the lights and getting the outlets to work. Second was the lack of a working plug for the bathroom sink. Third were the stains on the carpet. Fourth was having to have our keys rekeyed three times. And, what's with the round bed?

The bar and the bartender were great. The food was decent, once you found the breakfast room. It was reasonably quiet, even though there was a Harley Davidson motorcycle event going on, and we slept well. The location with the views of the lake was very nice.

Had this not been a 5-star hotel I would be leaving a different review. I expect great experience when we pay for premium and we did not get that here.
Construction is taking place in the central grounds. This removed the Rose garden (both pedestrian access and view) previous reviewers had raved about. That would be fine IF A HELICOPTER was not making deliveries- hourly- for an entire day.
Imagine trying to enjoy a glass of champagne on the pool deck with winds and excessive noise recurring all day. I would have appreciated a warning when we booked our stay and an option to change plans. The bottle Schnapps they gave us with the warning the night before was nice but did not compensate for having to deal with the noise all day.

They also neglected to bring the fruit and chocolate plate we had ordered for our arrival. It was on our bill at checkout and the front desk removed it after we inquired. That is still poor execution.

While the beach club and spa were superb, the lobby and main hallway to the amenities looks like a shopping plaza. Why is there a real estate office and tacky clothing store on my way to the spa? Hideous!

Finally, while our meal at the waterfront restaurant was full of flavour, we were annoyed when my husband ordered from the prix-fixe menu he ended up being charged a-la-carte prices (30% more) because I did not also order off of the a-la-carte menu (I am vegetarian and there was no option for me despite asking).

We had big expectations for this hotel- but checked out 2 days before our stay was over. First of all- the location of the hotel was good, close to the lake and the pool area was great. The Seespitz restaurant had great staff and food- so, it's worth a visit. But the hotel itself feels very unpersonal. The hallways and Reception area feels like inside a shopping mall/ car park. The staff is not very warm or welcoming, it feels just like "paying for a sweater" in a store upon checking in/out. The rooms are good sized with terrace, but the lighting is very bad, so it's like slumber time 24/7. Also there is carpets everwhere, that is hard to keep clean for the housekeeping it seems, upon the spots and crumbles on the floor. There are big closets for all your clothes, but the bed is not comfortable, so we didn't get any good sleep. The faucet over the sink in the bathroom are placed to low with bad draining , so you always have to dip your whole hand in the "dirty" sink water everytime you shave/ brush your teeth. We also tried the spa- the woman, who seemed to be in charge was very friendly and service minded, but the treatments was below expectations. A simple manicure/ pedicure was so badly done that i had to redo it at another spa. The massage was just ok- nothing special. The training facilities was good for a work out. The town is a charming small place, but you easily gets bored after few days.
