Hotel Miramonte in Bad Gastein is a place, in which the traditional mountain world is mixed with the new digital nomads. You don’t really stay here romantically, but rather creative – and you’ll love the price.
Miramonte belongs to Evelyn and Ike Ikrath, who also own Haus Hirt, which we introduced you to last week. And the Miramonte is also a further highlight in the hotel jungle in Bad Gastein, because it’s beautifully located on a hillside. You have this wonderful the valley and the mystic Grand Hotels in the centre of the historical town.
However, unlike the Haus Hirt, the Miramonte is an architectural experiment: It doesn’t really follow the traditional mountain hotel standards and the ubiquitous wooden chalet style is just not present here. Architect Ike Ikrath has managed to turn a typical building from the 70s into a mixture of a cool bed and breakfast and designer hotel.
The rooms are light, modern, not really playful, but somehow very cosy. The corridors are cool, but not cold. The terrace not romantic, but nice. The spa not pseudo, but somehow real. And the guests not spoilt, but curious to know, just what makes this place so interesting.
What we like
We really liked the communal (very delicious) evening dinner on the terrace at the front of the building with a view to the brightly illuminated Bad Gastein. Everyone sits together at a large table and gets to know the other guests. Later you gather around the fire for cocktails, or watch a movie on the open air screen – relaxing on one of the sun beds.
Thus ideal for
People, who don’t necessarily want to follow conventions and want to have creative neighbours during their holiday in the mountains. In theory, you can spend a whole week in Miramonte, sitting on the terrace, working on your laptop.
Double room from 70 euros per person including breakfast, light lunch and dinner.
