Lovely place albeit not very warm

  • 3 of 5

The heating isn't quite up to colder weather.

For internet I would suggest the A1 Internet cube for 100 Euros, which includes 30 Euros for a months unlimited access, which can be got from the A1 shop in the middle of Zell am See.

Handy for Bella Casa restaurant underneath, and near bus stop to the mountain, as well as Billa supermarket across the river.

Convenient Studio Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was perfect for us. It was spotlessly clean and we loved to come home after a day's skiing and sit in the sun on the balcony having a drink and a snack. We came to ski, so we liked the glacier the most! Easy drive up to the car park and hassle free parking. We had trips Tobogganing and to the spa. We would like to come back in the summer to do some walking and cycling We would recommend this property . "

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay and will book again if we are back out in Kaprun.

We have already looked at your other accommodation and would certainly recommend you.

The location was perfect, in fact it was opposite the first place my wife and I had cake in Kaprun many years ago.

We spent the week skiing which was the plan and the reason we chose Kaprun was due to the guaranteed snow on the glacier at that time of year.

If the is any criticism (and it is minor) it was having to manually hold the showerhead whilst showering and the fact that the shower curtain sticks to you. But as I said a minor issue when taken as a whole.

Finally thank you for what was a well organised and smooth holiday let, as I said the whole family enjoyed it.

Many thanks.

John and Jacky
