We stayed for three nights in Mayrhofen as part of amonth long driving trip through the Tirol. In planning for our trip, we identified Mayrhofen as a place we wanted to visit due to its proximity to the Zillertaler Alps, Krimml Waterfall and the Tux Valley. Great central location for daily road trips and hikes.
For some reason, we had a very difficult time finding accomodation listing for Mayrhofen that were reasonably priced, which was especially strange considering how many choices there actually are in Mayrhofen. But we finally found the Hotel Garni Erler, run by the Erler family. It's located about a five minute walk (over level streets) from the large, modern Information Center and the start of the (sometimes) pedestrian zone of central Mayrhofen. The Hotel was very clean, the rooms, bed and bath are typical of the region; comfortable and functional. The Hotel had just finished installing a lift, which made getting our luggage up to the second floor a lot easier.
We were there the end of June and first couple days of July, but it seemed we were the only guests. Our host was very gracious, and while she spoke no English, to match our lack of German, we all managed to communicate as needed. The breakfast was very good; again, typical of the region, but very hearty and plenty to get us started out on the trails.
Frau Erler has a large, beautiful garden behind the Hotel, and we spent rainy afternoons sitting on our balcony with a glass of wine enjoying the setting. Mayrhofen is a very nice village with lots of good restaurants, live music, great shops featuring local crafts and the usual touristy stuff. The Information Center was one of the best we encountered in the Tirol, with free wi-fi available. If only the weather had been better during our visit, it might have been one of the best stops on our trip.
