Hotel Gruener Baum
Ranked #22 of 42 Hotels in Zell am See
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 January 2015

This was our first visit to Zell Am See. I had previously read articles and reviews about it & thought it would be worth a visit. If you are a young, partying person, you would enjoy the city. If you are not into the partying scene, not so much... Our hotel was nice, but we were locked in at night because I'm not so sure the area is that safe. Our first night I heard bloodcurdling screams (feminine) from somewhere outside. If I had been in the US I would have dialed 911. My husband attempted to go out to the car (in underground parking-which was a good thing) about 7:00 AM one morning and our key would not let us out of the hotel. Hopefully, if the fire alarm goes off the doors would automatically open! We stayed in another Gruener Baum Hotel in Hallstatt, Austria. I think I may have submitted a review of Hallstatt instead of Zell Am See previously. There is no comparison! Hallstatt was a really beautiful, friendly village & the hotel was very elegant!! I hope I didn't confuse anyone.

Room Tip: If you have a street side room, get the earplugs the desk offers:(

Conveniently located in the heart of the town, private parking (indoor and outdoor available), very friendly and helpful staff, and rooms were great.

Breakfast was delicious! Lots of variety to choose from.

Rooms were clean and modern. Bed was comfortable. Wi-Fi was reliable. Great for couples and families.

Highly recommend this charming hotel.

Worked for me! I needed a nice place to sleep for a night on the road and was happy with this one. Nothing special, but it functioned well and the attached restaurant was good.

Room was clean, bathroom well laid out. I'd go back!

An excellent typically Austrian hotel right in the centre if Zell am see,
We had a room in the top floor of the hotel with a balcony and views of surrounding mountains,
Staff were attentive and helpful.
My only complaint is that the hotel was unable to provide gluten free rolls at breakfast for my son, but we knew about that in advance following emails.

Hotel Grüner Baum is located in the middle of Zell am See, just a few steps from the main streets and 2 minutes from the lake. Our room was spacious and clean. The bathroom had a shower and a tub and was newly renovated and in perfect condition. The room had a very large balcony overlooking the mountains.
Parking was easy (the hotel has an underground garage) and breakfast was fresh and plentiful.
The staff was friendly and helpful.
The only complaint was that beeing located so centrally there is quite a bit of noise fra people during the night.
I would stay at the hotel again.
