Help booking hotels/apartments in Austria

Hi, I'm having a very hard time booking a ski trip in Austria around Christmas and during Sportsferien in February. I know it's peak season but I can't find anything available.

I'm using booking.com and searching for apartments or houses. We're a family of 4 and really need a place with a full kitchen. So far I have searched for

Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis
Alpbach
Around Innsbruck
etc

The only things I can find are hotels that are outside of towns and need to drive into the resort. I think booking.com probably does not have enough inventory so they're showing everything as booked.

Can somebody recommend another web site that is more specific to booking hotels/apartments in Austria?

The alternative is to go to each individual hotel/apartment web site and search for availability there. I started doing this but it's extremely time consuming and most of those web sites only have pictures and a phone number so I can't book online.

Thanks,
DavidSJC

You can try hostelworld.com as well...they list not only hostels but bed and breakfasts, apartments, etc.

I find with booking.com sometimes it helps to search by the map feature, rather than by city names. It depends how flexible you are I guess - good luck!

You can search for all available in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis on their web page. Most resorts will have this option. http://www.serfaus-fiss-ladis.at/en/...eie-zimmer.htm.

Ps- Serfaus is brilliant for families, we are regulars, going for our 7th year in 2013!

Thank you DrMom. It was your previous messages on Serfaus that I found that prompted me to want to go there.
