This 151-room hotel is a quintessential Tyrolean lodge featuring peaked wooden roofs, whitewashed walls and painted window shutters set against a bracing Alpine backdrop of lush forest and snowcapped peaks. Interiors combine a cozy ski lodge vernacular — roaring wood fires, antlers, tall-back leather chairs and female staff donning traditional Austrian dirndl – with streamlined modern design, like the minimalist black and white suites brightened with splashes of block color. Three restaurants serve gastronomic delights such as free-range duck with topinambour, kale and Abathe Fetel pear, while the 32,291-square-foot, full-service spa provides Ayuverdic indulgences. Also onsite is a ski and golf shop that equips guests with all they need to explore what lies on the resort’s doorstep: one of Europe’s most exciting Alpine recreation areas.
In the Area
Kitzbühel in both the ski season and summer, when the sunny Alps are the setting for golf tournaments, triathlons and car rallies. Recharge from all the outdoorsy activity at Bärenbadalm, a charming mountain hut that is one of the region’s best restaurants. Here, diners nosh on rustic dishes such as house-made deer sausage and trout caught from the restaurant’s own fish pond. After you’re stuffed to the gills, get your apres-ski party on at one of the town’s lively bars (we like the popular Streifalm, which is at the foot of the ski slopes), or test your karaoke skills at the Lichtl Pub, whose ceiling is bedecked with twinkling lights. And if the lodge’s enormous spa doesn’t do it for you, get slathered in healing herbal mud at the Aquarena Swimming Centre in the heart of Kitzbühel.
How to Get There
Just spent 4 nights in Executive Room 455, though slightly disappointed with room as website pictures appear much larger with better views it was comfortable though poor pillows and lack of coffee making facilities not what I expect from a so called 5 star hotel these days. What makes this hotel is the staff who were fantastic, I would really love management to acknowledge Daniel and Betina 2 x Hungarian staff members who went out of their way to help in restaurant and were a pleasure to talk to. The food choice was excellent with the calvery meats melting in your mouth cooked perfectly. My wife and I both struggle with dairy products but alternative milks were always available as were vegan options. Although the hotel is about 10 mins walk from town centre its views were beautiful and the bar area warm and inviting with lovely spa area great after a day in the cold, personally a great hotel choice and I would have no hesitation in staying again if returning to Kitzbuhel.
We arrived a very large group of 12 families with more than 50 people. In the restaurant we were assigned only 36 seats so some of us had to wait while others were finishing their meal. The management were unable to solve this problem and add table/seats for our group.
Hotel is located far from the ski lifts, so they operate shuttle service with some drivers who were extremely rude to customers. For example, one of the drivers blocked me and my kids from entering the shuttle as she said it was not my turn although she had no idea who was first in line as she was not there when the queue formed. I referred this issue to the manager and they only apologized after I demanded that they pull out CCTV recordings to see who was the first in line!
Some of the waiters were also quite rude refusing to take orders for drinks from cigar lounge.
Hotel is quite run down, especially corridors which need major renovation as carpets have some strange spots on them.
The only bright spot was the Spa and its personnel especially cosmetician and massage therapist Lynn who was super professional!
In general, I would not recommend this hotel to those who seek 5-star accommodation. The service and management quality barely qualifies for 3 stars.
Surprisingly dirty room, on the carpet large blots of unknown origin. The food was weak, the soup oversalted and cold, an uneatable pasta. The bathroom with the mold and the water stone. Most of the things needed in the room we had to ask for. Not very pleasant experience :(
We stayed four nights, December 9-13, 2018. Room 644.
A-Rosa's biggest asset is the staff, wow! From arrival to saying goodbye, the staff can't seem to do enough for you. The restaurant staff is always polite and attentive.
I wish I wrote down all their names. Bettina S. comes to mind. Fantastic, congratulations on such wonderful employees!
Our room 644, a superior, has a lovely balcony and pretty views. The room layout is generous, with a comfy bed, and a nice warm duvet.
Thanks for keeping the complimentary mini bar well stocked; that was well appreciated!
The bathroom is very nice, great layout and a wonderful shower. Loved the toiletries and amenities.
Then there is so much storage... Wonderful.
The room and bathroom was always very clean.
We had the full board package and we truly enjoyed the food. Choices were ample. I think I ate too much. The chefs at the food station were very nice.
The Spa looks beautiful, but prices are rather expensive.
There is a Spa bag in your room with robes and slippers to let you step out of your room and go to the Spa.
And lastly, the property is very beautiful.
It's not often that we are sad to leave a hotel. We were. 😕
Oh, the walk from the hotel into the center of Kitzbühel is only 11 minutes and an enjoyable walk. No need for a taxi, even after skiing (assuming you are renting equipment and can store it near the Gondola).
Our stay was wonderful, so I hate to be negative.
However, for a Five* hotel, the bed linens and thin towels are more on par with 3.5* hotel.
The bed pillows are so flat that we had to use the sofa cushions to add lift, even though the sofa cushions need periodic replacement as well.
Our room and hallway carpeting looks dirty (I understand, light colors and snow slush don't mix).
Charging €2,50 for a caraffe of tap water seems excessive, and I would be happier knowing that perhaps A- Rosa donated at least €1,50 of the fee charged, to charity (just a thought 😉).
Overall, we were very happy staying in the A-Rosa Kitzbühel hotel!
wonderful spa, good gym, its a bit of a walk from town but not too far. They have a shuttle to take you skiing in the morning and bring you back. Great views, there is even a golf course if you come in summer. Kitzbuehel is full of top end shops and great restaurants. Not cheap but really good.
