We booked this hotel because the "zero waste" concept appealed to us very much.
The outside of the hotel has a stylish design, impresses with its wooden construction in the classic Alpine style, and the lobby is also very cozy thanks to the large amount of wood used. It's just a shame that the standard room we booked was very simply furnished and was probably not (yet?) Renovated. However, the cleanliness was great and the balcony was quite large.
Unfortunately, the evening buffet (€ 18 p.p.) was also sobering - quite simple for my taste (e.g. salad buffet consisted of iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers), I would have expected more given the room price. The breakfast (although with a really large selection) had a youth hostel character due to the juice and coffee machines. It's a shame, a "real" fresh coffee for breakfast would have been nice.
Unfortunately, I don't think the concept of "Zero Waste" has been implemented well. However, this was not explicitly pointed out again by the employees. Yes, there are garbage separation stations in the hotel corridors (garbage cans are deliberately not part of the room furnishings) and natural building materials were used (at least outside, in the lobby and apparently also in the glamping huts).
It's just a shame that there are paper napkins on the tables when eating (wouldn't cloth napkins be more environmentally friendly?) And the food waste, which is unfortunately not uncommon in buffets, is only part of the "Zero Waste" concept insofar as it is only visible at second glance ) Boards are advised not to put too much on the plate so that less is thrown away.
For my understanding, the concept has not been thought through to the end and thus gets a light touch of greenwashing.
Wir haben dieses Hotel gebucht, da uns das "Zero Waste"-Konzept sehr angesprochen hat.
Das Hotel ist von außen schick gestaltet, überzeugt mit der Holzbauweise im klassischen Alpenstil, auch die Lobby ist dank des vielen verbauten Holzes sehr gemütlich. Schade nur, dass das gebuchte Standardzimmer dann doch sehr einfach eingerichtet daherkam und vermutlich (noch?) nicht renoviert war. Sauberkeit allerdings top und der Balkon war recht groß.
Ernüchternd war leider auch das Abendbuffet (18€ p.P.) - für meinen Geschmack recht einfach (z.B. Salatbuffet bestand aus Eisbergsalat, Tomaten, Gurken), da hätte ich angesichts des Zimmerpreises mehr erwartet. Auch das Frühstück (obwohl mit wirklich großer Auswahl) hatte aufgrund der Saft- und Kaffeeautomaten eher Jugendherbergs-Charakter. Schade, ein "echter" frischer Kaffee zum Frühstück wäre schön gewesen.
Das Konzept des "Zero Waste" finde ich leider nicht gut umgesetzt. Von den Mitarbeitern wurde jedoch nicht noch einmal explizit darauf hingewiesen. Ja, es gibt Mülltrennstationen auf den Hotelgängen (Mülleimer gehören bewusst nicht zur Zimmereinrichtung) und es wurde (zumindest außen, in der Lobby und offenbar auch bei den Glamping-Hütten) natürliches Baumaterial eingesetzt.
Schade nur, dass dann aber beim Essen Papierservietten auf den Tischen liegen (wären Stoffservietten nicht umweltfreundlicher?) und die bei Buffets leider nicht unübliche Lebensmittelverschwendung nur insofern Teil des "Zero Waste"-Konzeptes ist, als das auf (erst auf den zweiten Blick sichtbaren) Tafeln darauf hingewiesen wird, sich bitte nicht zu viel auf den Teller zu legen, damit weniger weggeschmissen wird.
Für mein Verständnis ist das Konzept nicht ganz zu Ende gedacht und bekommt dadurch einen leichten Anstrich von Greenwashing.
