This hotel is in the small village of Igls some 900 metres above Innsbruck. In an excellent location 50 meters from the cable car station, for skiing in Winter and mountain walking in Summer. The room was spacious with a separate seating area and a South facing balcony with view of the mountains. The bathroom was large and well-equipped with two wash hand basins, a shower and full bath. There was also a hair dryer and toiletries.
There was a very good free wifi connection in the room and a flat screen TV. However, unless you were able to speak German or you took an accelerated course in that language, you would not understand anything. But this was the only fly in the ointment because we were really spoiled in many other respects.
Prior to choosing this hotel we had read other reviews on Trip Advisor and one of them mentioned that they had been having awful food. We had quite the opposite experience. Breakfast was excellent with a great of choice and eggs made to order and brought to your table. Similarly the dinner menu included two starters and two main courses, plus a vegetarian one. In addition, during our one week's stay the menu was varied and we never ate the same thing twice.The service at the table was impeccable and we found the staff most helpful and pleasant. The proximity of Innsbruck, which could be reached in 15 minutes by a bus from just outside the hotel door, was another positive feature. We first visited this most interesting town on foot then we took a 3 day Innsbruck Card for entrances to museums etc..Therefore, if you were not able to go hiking in the mountains, there were many things to see in the city or its surroundings.
All in all we had a very pleasant experience both regarding the place and its people and we can certainly recommend this hotel.
