Great apartment/good location/still comfortable with 3 people

  • 5 of 5

It was a great weekend we spent in the apartment. It was the 3 of us and it was still comfortable - if you prefer more space it might be too crowded for long term but for a couple days it's good. When we arrived the heat wasn't on because it's central heating (about 3-4 C outside) - we went to grab dinner and by the time we came back the apt was warm so that was a great test:) Nice bathroom and the kitchen is fully equipped. The only thing that would be nice to have is a tea towel, and maybe salt/pepper and oil to make short term stay easier - but I understand it's not their responsibility.

Overall great what you get for the price especially. Nice hausmeister.

Skiing holiday February 2016

  • 4 of 5

Good location, close to the ski bus stop, shops and restaurants.

Simple but clean, well equipped kitchen. Very reasonable price.

Important for skiers: there is no ski and boots storage room which is a big minus for holiday in ski season.

Owner's Response: Every flat in the building has its own lockable storage in the basement of one of the buildings. This was mentioned on the email we sent the customer on booking with the relevant lock code. Each flat also has a large covered balcony where guests often leave their ski equipment. We have been letting this property since 2005 with many repeat bookings. Previous guests have not mentioned a problem with storage of equipment.

Good value for a small price!

  • 4 of 5

" We, my wife and I with our two 16 year old daughters, spend our summer holiday in Kaprun. I was very surpised to see what we got for such a low price.

The apartment was not full of luxury, but it was clean and had everything a family normally needs.

We had a great active holiday, with paragliding, walking, swimming, canyoning and laying and reading by the waterside in Zell am See.

I have actualy recommended your apartment and the area to several people and got them very interested.. "

Holiday in flat 69

  • 4 of 5

The flat was better than expected,very comfortable beds,clean. The disadvantage was that the housmaster could not speak English at all but sign language is international:)Anyway,he was nice and helpful when we had problems with taxi. The flat is warm, but windows not double glazed so we could hear every sound in the street (there were not much people in October so we were lucky, if there were more tourists during the night in the street it would be hard to sleep). The flat is in the same building with pizza bar, so during the busy times in summer or winter could be noisy. There was smell of smoke in the corridor all the time but it did not come into the flat luckily, and through the walls it was easy to hear neighbour when he was talking to other people. I do not know why but the key of the main entrance and flat was the same....Housmaster lived one floor below, so it was easy to do early check out. In general good experience for such a low price

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you found the beds comfortable beds and the flat clean. We appreciate the four star review, but feel we should clarify some of the guests' assumptions. All windows in the building are double glazed as these flats are built for Austrian winters and skiing accommodation. No double glazing can mask any sounds that might come from outside even in the most recently built flat specifications. The same goes for the dividing walls between flats. We feel it is unfair to raise assumptions regarding any possible noise coming from either the pizza restaurant, which has been there ever since we obtained the flats over 10 years ago, or the road outside. Kaprun is a small town in the Alps with all the facilities holiday makers need and the flats are only a few minutes walk away from other shops and restaurants, something which guests appreciate, especially in the winter when there is snow on the ground. Anyone staying in a hotel would potentially face the same noise level at some stage in their stay, yet would have to pay much more for their stay. As the guests mentioned, it was good value for money and we were also able to accommodate them for their requested short stay. The housekeeper cannot track down every rogue smoker who may use the corridor outside the flats instead of the ample balcony attached to the flat, but airs and cleans the building on a daily basis to eliminate any odours. As the guests state, the smoke did not penetrate the actual accommodation, (so feel it is strange that they should choose to include this in their review). As with many flats and lock systems, the security keys fit both the entrance door to the building and the individual flat. This does not mean that these keys can be used for all individual flats in the house. The Austrians have been building apartments to suit tourists and citizens for many years and would hardly create a scenario which would jeopardize the security of the accommodation. Finally the housekeeper speaks German and Austria is a German speaking country. The majority of the guest do not come from the UK. There is no reason to expect a multi linguist.

friendly, centrally located apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are happy to recommend the apartment to anybody.  We certainly would not would not hesitate to stay here again! On our arrival we were shown we were shown where everything was located.  We were happy that there was a lift and no steep staircase to climb.  All we could require from a kitchen was there. The area had beautiful landscape, good restaurants and we had great weather.   We found the bed comfortable and we slept and it was well decorated.  We found everybody friendly which made the holiday memorable.  We had some beautiful days this bright and airy apartment.  There is no need to worry about electronic entertainment in such a lovely location. We chose this due to the images on the website and we were no disappointed.
