Hotel Parkin , Austria
So what's it like?
The Park is an excellent hotel with a great reputation for its high standards of service and cuisine. Many of the rooms have been refurbished over recent years to help this become one of St Johann's leading hotels for both comfort and traditional style. You can also expect a warm welcome from the Grander family and their friendly staff.
The Park is in a peaceful setting a short walk from the centre of St Johann - and it's even closer to the Harschbichl gondola, for easy access to a multitude of mountain walks. There's loads going on in and around the hotel too. There's a wellness suite for a bit of early evening relaxation and a garden for daytime sunning, or for the kids to play - and the hotel organise weekly mountain hut trips both for breakfast and evening live music as long as the weather holds out.
Bike hire is available for only a few euros per day, making it easy and fun to get out and about. You'll also receive free daily entrance to the local Panoramabad outdoor swimming pool in town - great for kids and adults alike.
And lastly, you can keep your wallet in your pocket during evening meals - selected beers, wines and soft drinks are all included while you eat.

Austrian twin beds
Austrian twin beds are very common in Central Europe. They’re simply one large bed frame containing two single mattresses, both with separate duvets and linen sets, that cannot be separated. Separate twin beds are less common and can often be head to head beds, rather than side by side, if they are available.
A French balcony is a small balcony that allows you to fully open your balcony windows, but is usually not large enough to have furniture.
