A Vantage Point Above The Lake
Located in a prime location on the edge of Lake Wörthersee and by the central city park, the hotel is at the same time practically in the city centre, which is just 4-5km away and connected by the canal, allowing access for smaller boats. This part of town, where both the University of Klagenfurt and the Lakeside Science and Technology Park can be found, is also a recreation zone for the city, with many programmes that you can take advantage of during your stay. The picturesque beauty of the location is further illustrated by the fact that the hotel is a popular location for weddings and important congress meetings.
Most guests arrive at the hotel by car and are especially appreciative of the large, free car park available. For fans of electric vehicles, the hotel’s garage also offers 3 charging station. Road access to this part of Klagenfurt is very easy, as the main A2 highway is just a few kilometres away. Klagenfurt Airport is only about 10 minutes away, with flight connectivity to the city gradually improving. Klagenfurt is a congress guest-friendly city, where public transport works very well and taxi prices are quite reasonable.
COLD APPETIZER - Architecture and Aesthetics
If you’re a fan of modern architecture, then the hotel will not disappoint you. Klagenfurt’s own Architecture Bureau Trecolore has provided an attractive, curved façade that inspires architecture lovers. It seems that they wanted to successfully make an organic link with the picturesque landscape surrounding the hotel; a large glass wall in the wellness centre and conference halls also allows for constant contact with the all-embracing nature. Overall, the hotel works very freshly and in an innovative way, and also with an intelligent interior colour palette and an exterior example of quality architecture. It is also extremely functional and thoughtful for the needs of congress guests.
WARM APPETIZER - Staff and catering
The first thing guests will notice is the extremely decadent breakfast offer – Hotel Seepark is extremely good in the culinary sector. The restaurant offer is organised and the dishes are carefully chosen with thought given to the wishes of business guests, although there could be some improvements in the wine list to satisfy the most discerning of guests. The cuisine is a combination that can most easily be defined as Alpine-Mediterranean. It is all rounded with an extremely professional and friendly staff.
MAIN DISH - Conference hotel service
The carefully designed hotel room interiors are bright, open and spacious, with modern furniture that comes in various shapes and materials: wood that brings warmth and a homely atmosphere, and large glazed surfaces that offer guests direct contact with the surrounding nature even from inside their hotel rooms. The minimalist touches are revealed in purified detail in the form of the lamps and each of the individual decorative pieces, with and space further softened by a descending curtain.
The congress centre is equipped in a similar style and is ideal for corporate meetings. Five halls are designed for events, the largest taking up to 110 participants.
DESSERT – The extras
Lake Wörthersee – a stay in the hotel can be enhanced by eating at Lake Wörthersee itself, which offers an exceptional experience in any season. In addition to the summer activities connected to the lake’s main tourist offer, you can see also some cultural gems (Velden, Maria Worth and much more).
FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
A not too prominent reception desk with staff that is professional but perhaps a bit too cold could think of trying to leave a more warm and genuine first impression.
TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
The culinary offer far exceeds the standards of competitive hotels and we also especially recommend the business lunches that were a surprise, including the extremely friendly staff.
OVERALL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY
Architectural excesses, a curved futuristic facade, beautiful surroundings, proximity to the city, quality cuisine…these are just some of the extras offered by Klagenfurt’s leading business hotel. All this is enriched by high standard hotel services and the likeable and pleasant capital of the Austrian province of Carinthia. This hotel is the perfect choice for small conference groups, usually dominated by corporate clients.
