Apartment Hotel »Guess Flats« – Bad Gastein, Salzburg, Austria

The former spa hotel has been transformed into an apartment hotel; the so-called “guess flats”.
Bad Gastein distinguishes itself from the rest of the ski resorts in Austria through its outer appearance. It combines the characteristics of the Alps with a touch of urban feeling. Not only has this location experienced a long history, it has also, along with the help of the centre for congress and Felsenbad, helped plant an architecturally modern mark.
Therefore, the layout of this hotel has correlated these characteristics. From the outside, no changes have been made. The traditional structure remains. The only alterations made which will imply a change, are those undertaken at the entrance hall, a minor reconstruction in the kitchen, as well as the top floor.
The interior design of the apartments follow a modern style, starting from the light green rugs to the designer furniture made by Cappelini from Capelini, Milan, as well as the furniture designed by the architect. Sofas, armchairs and beds are made of navy blue material, whereas the kitchen is custom-made from Pupinga-furnish. Small tables and bookshelves are made from Finnish film-coated plywood. The transparent room dividers separate the bathrooms from the remaining rooms in the apartments.
The house will be run by the “Guess-Group”. It is a community that has already established a three-storied restaurant/bar, as well as 30 “Guess Flats” in the first district of Vienna, near the opera house (Kaerntnerstrasse 44).
