Schladming centre has a good choice of three- and four-star hotels, but the quiet surrounding villages of Haus, Pichl, Rohrmoos, and Ramsau provide the better budget choices. The four-stars in Schladming include Sporthotel Royer, which has something for everyone. There’s a spa, an adventure swimming-pool with water slides, tunnels, bubble pool and pool for small children, a children’s games room with special organized activities, a gym, an indoor tennis centre and squash courts, indoor rifle shooting, three bowling alleys, a beach volleyball court, darts and billiards. As you might expect for a hotel with these fabulous facilities, it is crowded with Russians in January. Posthotel Schladming is an old coaching inn in the main square, with a fine restaurant – the Johann, and the Cabalou café bar with live music and special events.
Appartement-Hotel Ferienalm is a traditional place ten minutes from the resort centre. It has panoramic views of Schladming and the Planai ski area and is five minutes by ski bus from the Planai gondola. Gasthof zum Kaiserweg is in a quiet position five minutes’ walk from the centre. It has simple rooms, and a good restaurant using fresh ingredients and everything home-made.
The four-star Hotel Almfrieden is located in the center of the 18km long and 4km wide plateau of Ramsau am Dachstein. A few steps away in Romantic Chalet Almfrieden, which opened in 2010, and has 22 rooms.
