Hotel Cristallo, Katschberg, Austria
Falkensteiner Hotel Cristallo cleverly combines a refurbished original building with a recently built wing housing its family rooms, public areas and leisure facilities. Its contemporary interiors, are spacious and bright, contributing to a very relaxing environment. The hotel's location could not be better, literally on the slopes and opposite to an express chairlift, the ski school meeting point and nursery slopes and opposite the children’s ski area which can be viewed by parents from the hotel’s bar and terrace area.
It’s not just the fantastic location that makes this hotel so appealing, the property boasts a huge array of facilities for adults and children of all ages. Children will love the family-only indoor pool, slide and spa area, plus the games room, play area and daily activities supervised by hotel nannies. Meanwhile, parents can make the most of the superb ‘Acquapura Spa’ area or enjoy one of the many beauty or massage treatments on offer.
Katschberg village centre is nearby at 250m for a small selection of shops, bars and restaurants. There are also plenty of non-ski activities to try out including toboganning, ice skating, horse-drawn sleigh rides and torchlit walks.
This is simply a superb choice for families but would be equally attractive to couples looking for first class, ski-in ski-out accommodation and everything under one roof.
