Kristiania Lech

Posted 23 March 14

Every year I look forward all winter to spend a weekend in one of my absolute favourite mountain hotel and town: Kristiania Hotel in Lech am Arlberg. A visit to Gertrud Schneider's boutique hotel has now become a tradition.

There are many things that make me love Kristiania, here are just a few that come right to my mind:

Charming rooms
The 29 rooms and suites are each individually and charmingly decorated with original art pieces and a different theme for each one. Every room has wonderful views over the village of Lech or toward the Alps. Every time I go I am curious to discover which room I’ve been assigned and experience a new atmosphere.

Unique atmosphere
The atmosphere of Kristiania is unique. I love the understated luxury and the tasteful ambiance, every choice of furniture, colors and light perfectly fits with the alpine surrounding.

Homely feeling
Another quality that cannot go unnoticed is the attentive and not intrusive service. The staff looks like a family, and this harmonic feeling is rapidly felt by clients, who can have the best experience of professional but personal service, and great flexibility… There is no pressure on waking up in time for breakfast as breakfast will wait for you, or to having a drink late after dinner if you feel like enjoying the bar atmosphere and chat with your friends way into the night.. just like a weekend at home, no one dictates your schedule!

Fine Food
From breakfast, with some of the best scrambled eggs I have ever tasted and a fresh apple and ginger juice to start the ski day, to the cakes and pastries assortment offered at the bar in the afternoon to accompany your tea, and finally to dinner, excellent Austrian cuisine with a refined twist and an impressive wine list.

There could be many other things but it’s best you go and discover them yourself..
