I visited Mayerhofen, Austria with my brother in the end of January - beginning of February 2006, and we stayed in the Neue Post **** hotel. The purpose of our visit there was skiing of course, and the hotel suited quite well for that, it has a room where u can leave your skis, boots.
Also after tough day in the Alps it's amazing to relax in an excellent spa-zone of the hotel, which offers you quite a big swimming pool and numerous saunas and other spa activities. A little shocking thing for us was an austrian/german way of visiting sauna ( I mean, in naked way :))
Food quality is very good, usual buffet breakfast and dinner served by meals by a waiter. Sometimes we had to wait quite a long for our next dish or drink, but that was okay. I cant say that our waiter was super-kind and glad, not liked him very much.
At evenings people come around the bar on the 1st floor, drink their whiskey or beer. Most people are aged so I cant recommend this place for young companies and parties , because there;s no disco or may be just some modern music.
The hotel is quite far from center lift, may be 10 minutes walking and all 15-20 mins walking in ski boots and handling skis. But the bust stop is just near the hotel, so some 7 mins by A-route bus, and you will reach the PenkenBahn.
The room was quite good, but nothing extraordinary except the amazing view on the Alps direct from our balcony
I haven't been to any other hotel nearby, because it was my first time in Austria, so I can't compare Neue Post to other hotels, is it better or worse. I can just say that it is a good quality place to stay, especially for over 30 aged people, for quite a big amount of money. And youngsters like me (I was 22 during that trip) should better settle in 3* hotels and pensions, closer to the night-party-area of Mayerhofen, I suppose.
So in general, the hotel is very good by European standarts, but nothing extraordinary. Thanks to all who read it, coz it's my first review in English.
