Last month I went to a birthday party and stayed in a truly wonderful and special hotel Gutwinski http://www.gutwinski.cc in Feldkich Austria.
My experience is that the service in Austria in the hotels is unfortunately much better then in many ones in Germany and this hotel showed another proof of it.
It’s very easy to get there, it’s located in a pedestrian area of Feldkirch, near the old Schattenburg castle. You can park very convenient at Montforthaus the arts and congress center. The hotel is just 200 meters away from the elevator of the parking.
I never have been in Feldkirch before and was positive surprised to discover a very nice small town with cosy restaurants and bars and a perfect starting point for hiking, mountain tours or just walking.
Gutwinski, the hotel describe themselves as “Modern and Elegant, Based on Tradition” and I absolutely agree with it. The hotel is family owned for over 100 years but it was redesigned with highest standards. It’s an amazing small luxury boutique hotel with 27 rooms and a suite.
Some hotels do not look nice outside, but this ones appearance is already something to look at! This stunning building is from 16th century and looks like a beautiful town house.
As I entered the hotel I was welcomed by unique into the smallest details interior. Everything arranged with style and impeccable taste. The hotel staff was very friendly and welcoming. I checked in and received the key to the suit of the house!
As I opened the door I was stunned to see this masterpiece of lifestyle. I travel a lot so stayed in many beautiful hotels but honestly, never in such an amazing one. Ok, not every one would like it, as it’s not a “clean chick” or “purism” it’s a story of a traveler, interior designer, lifestyle lover and time traveler.
The room is big and has a lot to discover. The bed is in a center of the room on a kind of podium and around it you have a living area on another side a cosy sitting area and a desk for a world travelers between us.
The bathroom is enormous with huge walking in shower (with a sparkle colorful lights on the ceiling that gives you very stylish atmosphere) and a bathtub with whirlpool function.
The suite also had a terrace with the mountain view and a jacuzzi outside.
So, enough about the room, the hotel has also a wonderful restaurant. And as you can imagine it was like in heaven! The haute cuisine with very high standard. The restaurant is cosy with the very nice exclusive atmosphere.
As a starter I had tartar, main a steak and a chocolade mousse as a dessert.
The food presentation was terrific and everything was delicious.
The breakfast in the morning is served in the same restaurant. There is not much variety but you get everything you want to and the food is fresh and well presented.
Everything from check-in till check-out was smooth, friendly and I felt welcomed and absolutely as a guest.
I’m sure I will come here for another weekend, just to enjoy this little gem.
