Hotel Tyrol Alpenhof
Ranked #27 of 59 Hotels in Seefeld in Tirol
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 August 2013

My husband and I went skiing with friends in Feb 2013 to Seefeld and stayed in the hotel Tyrol-Alpenhof.
After reading some of the earlier reviews we weren't too sure what to expect but needn't have worried. I would ignore all of the previous reviews before Dec 2012 as the hotel has been under new management since then.
We had a fantastic week. The hotel is in a nice spot at the end of the town but not too far away that you can't walk (with skis and boots) to the nursery slopes in the morning.
The room was great, we had Austrian twin beds but they were pushed together, the bathroom was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. The room also had a nice balcony overlooking the street. The only noise we heard was from the truck taking the excess snow away in the morning, but it was a good wake up call.
The food in the hotel was nice. The portions were huge! I can see it might not be everyone's cup of tea as presentation isn't like you get in other hotels but it was all very tasty and more than enough after a hard days skiing. There was a large selection of buffet salad to start with and we chose our starter and main course at breakfast for that evening. The dining room feels a bit like a wedding reception the way it's laid out but it's fine. The waiting on staff were quite busy and got friendlier by the end of the week. The hotel also puts on tea and cake in the afternoon which is great to go back to after a day on the slopes. They also had a themed evening on the Wednesday night which was good fun.
We didn't use the pool so can't comment on that.
The lounge and seating areas in the lobby were very nice and it meant that you didn't feel like everyone was crowded together. There is also a lovely log fire in the front lounge/lobby area which the owner keeps stoked up in the evening. Also a tv in one area and some books to read. The hotel also give you free wifi for an hour at a time (in the lobby area only) but this is not limited to one hr a day so if you need more you just have to ask at reception for another code. There is also a kids playroom off of the main bar area but we didn't hear too much noise from this and it meant kids were entertained if parents wanted to sit in the bar area and keep an eye on their kids at the same time.

Seefeld itself is lovely. It's not very lively so if you're looking for loads of après ski this is not the resort for you. Most of the après ski is hotel based. It's the type of place that is prefect for an evening stroll after dinner where you can have a nose around the shops and pop into a quiet bar if you want to but we didn't even find many of these.
The nursery slope is great as there are three different sections which meant it wasn't very crowded. If you go up the main ski lift and over the back you come to a bowl which has different paths to take and can be a bit more of a challenge if you are an intermediate wanting to find your ski legs or you're a beginner who has had a few lessons and wants to practice on some different terrain. There is also a nice restaurant over the back.
My husband had a ski lesson through the ski school and came on leaps and bounds and wished he'd done it sooner in the week!
The shops are quite expensive for ski gear but its quite an up market kind of resort.
We also did the snow rafting which was held on the nursery slope and was great fun. We had to book this through Inghams even though we holidayed with Crystal because Crystal hadn't had enough takers for it.
Me and one or our friends who is a boarder took ourselves off to the Roschutte pistes (10mins on bus)while our other halves stayed on the nursery slopes back in the village.. The bus service was really good and the ski lifts and slopes were great with some challenging bits if you wanted them but also good for intermediates.
Once our other halves had built their confidence we all took the bus to the gschwandtkopf slopes which is another set of red and blue pistes. Again only 5-10 mins on bus. There are restaurants at the bottom and we saw beginners having lessons on some of the blues although these were steeper than the nursery slopes in the village.
If you want to do all the pistes at Roschutte and Gschwandtkopf in one day it's possible to do but I don't see the point in that. Expert skiers who want black runs would probably not like this resort but there is more than enough slopes to occupy up to good intermediates.
Seefeld also has a train station right in the centre and only 2 mins up the road from the hotel but you don't hear any noise as trains aren't that frequent so don't let that put you off. There is a level crossing which comes down when a train is coming through. We got the train to Innsbruck on our day odd from skiing. It only took about 40 mins and was a fantastic journey with great views over the valleys. Innsbruck itself is nice to have a mooch around for a day off skiing with interesting buildings and nice cafes/restaurants.
All in all a fantastic resort, which has plenty to see and do. I would recommend for couples, families, friends and singles but not for you if you want to party scene and lively après-ski.
PS if you go to Austria skiing you have to try a germknoedel (giant yeast dough dumpling usually with plum filling and served with custard, or kaiserschmarnn (thick pancake usually cut up and served with apples or cherries and sprinkled with icing sugar) or hot chocolate with rum or a gluwein!! We usually try and have all during the week - and then wonder why our salopettes are tighter by the end of the week :-))

We received a warm welcome. All staff friendly and helpful. Food superb and plenty of it! Beautiful balcony views of the surrounding mountains. Afternoon coffee/tea and cake are a welcome stop-gap 'til your evening meal. The pool and sauna provide a great way to unwind after a hard day's walking. We were the only couple given a large packed lunch for our final early morning transfer to Saltsburg - all other Tomson & Crystal guests at other hotels in Seefeld had to find their own breakfast on their last morning. Typical of this hotel's real service with a smile. A short walk into Seefeld gives this hotel better views of the mountains and a silent night.

Friendly staff and and in a good location. Don't be put off by the need to get buses - they are free and come all the time and it really isn't a problem. We liked it here. They also do interconnecting rooms which are great for families. They do coffee and cake mid afternoon which is a nice touch when you get back from skiing. Useful little pool. Decor felt a bit 70s but lots of hotels in this area are like this. We also like Seefeld - a rpoper functioning town with shops and cafes, not just a ski resort. The prices are much cheaper than France - we've been to Chamonix in recent years and it was astonishingly cheaper.

Beware - they do these hilarious gala evenings wth singers and strange food sculptures made from bread etc. The food is seriously strange but if you aren't thrown by that, there is no reason to gon hungry as it is plentiful. They are tremendouly accomodating to the vegetarian guest (my daughter and i) but we got some very interesting variations. I don't thingk my 9 year old daughter ate anything all week...

Hire from Ski Set next to bus station - you can store your skis for 2 e a day which is much cheaper than the ski station and you are by the bus stop. They are also very frendly and give you Schnapps when you get back if you play your cards right...

We booked last minute with Thomson Ski and were expecting a crummy hotel and were delighted with both the attentive hotel staff and the spacious public areas of the hotel. The food was plentiful and delicious, the rooms larger than most ski resort hotels, and the location is fine with a ski bus stop outside the hotel. It was th wonderful attitufe of the staff that made the stay so pleasant. I would definitely return again. The pool, steam room and sauna kept my children happy for ages at the end of the day skiing.
This hotel has an air of elegance about it.
One happy customer!!

Room Tip: most rooms would be good rooms.

The Hotel Tyrol is in a quiet location, about 5 minutes from the Ski School and 10 minutes from the pedestrianised centre of Seefeld. There is a ski bus stop outside which takes you directly to the Rosshutte Ski area.

The dining area is a bit dated but the staff were very friendly and efficient. There was a large selection of salad and 4 choices of starter and main course every day. Our room was on the second floor, with partial mountain views from the balcony. The shower was powerful and there was always plenty of hot water.

The swimming pool in the basement is small but pleasant. There is also a sauna area and steam room. There is free Wi Fi in the lounge if you have your own device.

The Reception Staff were extremely helpful. Due to a skiing injury we had to come home a day early. They offered us a takeaway tea at very short notice.

Spent a week in the Hotel Tyrol for a skiing holiday and don't have much to complain about.
The hotel is warm, as is the welcome from the staff. They are almost all Italian as is the hotel chain which now own the Tyrol.
The rooms are fairly typical of Austrian alpine hotels, but clean and comfortable. And although some of the fixtures and fittings are a little tired, the beds and bedding are excellent.
The food is good and very plentiful, if a little heavy on the pasta. The gala dinner on Wednesday involves a lot of effort from the staff.
Any complaints or comments are immediately followed up, with staff even giving us their own shower gel!
Try it, you will be well looked after.

Room Tip: The ski bus stops right outside the hotel.

Booked a last minute deal and for what we paid found this hotel great vfm. Would perhaps have had a less positive review if we paid full brochure price. This hotel is a good, clean 3 star. Yes, bedroom decor is dated, but the rooms are spotless and so well heated, no problems with damp gear. Food was great, you make your dinner choice the night before. Huge starters, nice salad bar. Plenty of food at breakfast and endless help yourself coffee/tea etc at breakfast. Afternoon cakes and coffee not much to write home about, but they do at least make the effort. Reception staff the very friendliest I have ever met. Bar is expensive compared to town centre which we found odd, perhaps why so few people stay in the hotel bar. Pool, OK for kids, don't expect a work out swim. Some old gym equipment, not worth mentioning, a good sauna (but be aware that many locals go naked - sauna world in town is totally costume free and that's a rule not an option) and a not so good steam room, cold plunge and showers. Ping pong in basement and a boot room for gear, though we used the boot/ski store at Sailer Sport by the lifts, as there are no lockers in the boot room and Sailer dry your boots :) a short walk from town and we walked to Roshutte every morning rather than take the bus, close enough if you're not carrying gear. We had room for 2 plus a room for 3 boys, 3rd bed was a real bed not a put-up bed which made a nice change. Not entirely sound proof rooms, so it's a good job you come back tired, but that is my only negative comment. On the whole, feel we would return for a similar £ deal.

Room Tip: Rooms close to reception on the oldest part of the building looked smarter than ours.
