I spent 2 weeks walking in the Filzmoos area with a very good friend, stopping at the Alpekrone hotel. The area is lovely, the only drawback being the lack of cheap deals for public transport in the area - the local "wanderbus" gives reasonable access - but it's fairly expensive. The local alms are of a good quality, we visited a fair few of them, enjoying good views of the Dachstein mountain area. We were very happy with the Alpenkrone itself. The rooms were clean and tidy, the showers were easy to use (always a bonus after a hot day on a hill!) and the beds were comfortable. The food provided was very good - the breakfast in particular (it had the widest choice of all the breakfasts I have seen so far in Austria). The hotel has a good view towards the local mountain nicknamed "The Bishops hat", and the terrace makes a fine place to have a drink and chat while watching the world go by. However we both thought that the strength of the Alpenkrone was it's staff - the waiters and waitresses in particular were very friendly and hard working, both myself and my friend expressed our thanks at the time, and we do so again. Vielen Danke from Simon and John.
