Schlosshotel Fiss. Happy camper in a castle
This hotel wil make you a very happy camper. At Schloss the magic words are caring, pampering and endless service. It’s all about making you feel like a king or queen.
Herr Kögl. He had me at hello…
Our first encounter with the hotel was in the winter of 2006 and it turned out to be an instant hit. Herr Kögl (at that time Maître d’Hotel) was waiting for us in the lobby to check-in. – The evening before we had already spoken to him briefly. We had decided to have diner at the Schloss restaurant prior to our check-in the next day- . He walked towards me, shaked my hand en said: Goedemorgen mevrouw Hermans, hoe gaat het met u? Wow! He welcomed me in my own language. Not often we Dutch get welcomed in our own language, but this man did. He spoke 7 languages fluently. And he already knew my name too. I don’t know about you but I can’t help it. I am a sucker for this kind of personal service. Gave me instantly the feeling of being a queen entering her castle!
Wellness residence and AquaMonte waterworld
The hotel features an extensive Spa area. Recently they have expanded the Wellness area. There is even a family spa, where you can enjoy Wellness together with your own loved ones. Of course there is also a section where you can have relaxing beauty treatments. For the sporty ones among us there is a professional gym, an in-house shop, super solarium and special silent rooms to retreat and have a moment of complete silence. All of this is perfect for us adults, but Schlosshotel also takes much effort in taking care of the kids. They have their very own water world area called ‘Splash!’

The rooms and suites
In recent years we’ve been guests at Schloss three times. The first time we were there in wintertime, then twice in summer. Every time we booked the same suite: Bergkristal ( Rhinestone ). This summer there had been a makeover. Bergkristal was one of suites that had been redecorated. Wooden floor, new curtains, fresh paint and…..new beds. Great beds I have to say. If you lie down you feel like the Princess and the Pea. Nice feature, it is possible to try out different pillows. They come with different fillings. Duck feathers, a mix of duck and chicken feathers or synthetic fibers. If you find the one that suits you, you can order one at the reception desk and take it home with you at departure. I love the re-born feeling in the morning after a night in that delightful bed.
Pure luxury. Press the slope button and off you go….
In winter, it’s of course all about skiing and snow. Schloss hotel is set up perfectly for this season. For example, there is an in-house sportshop where you can rent your gear, get your ski pass and book ski lessons. And of course there is a room where you can store your gear complete with ski boot warmers, but what really makes it unique is the private elevator for hotel guests. This takes you up directly from the sportshop in the hotel onto the slope in just a few seconds. You don’t have to carry your gear around for miles or get into a sweaty bus. Just press the slope button in the private access elevator and off you go. Pure luxury…..

Grab a bite in the smallest gourmet restaurant in the world
If you think that the huge water world facilities and the private elevator to the slope is all there is at Schloss, you’re mistaken.They have another exceptional surprise in store. The ultimate icing on the cake: Breakfast or lunch floating among the mountains in a gondola at high altitude ( from 1,450 to 2,436 meters ). Imagine the breathtaking views while you are enjoying delicate bites of pickled salmon, beef tartar, variations of homemade bread, a selected meat and cheese assortment, egg dishes of your choice and much more. Off course a chilled bottle of champagne is there waiting for you to toast on this heavenly experience. Please check the Schlosshotel blog for more information.
