WHY?:We chose this hotel because the half-board rate was lower with our skitour operator than those located in downtown St Anton.
LOCATION: This hotel is located a little way above/beyond the main village/gondola area. It was very easy to get to/from the the hotel in daytime via the free city bus. After 6:30pm a bus ticket was €3.50 or taxi €12. Walking downhill to the village will take only 10 mins, but uphill with skis/boots when the path is icy would take 20 mins and the saving isn't worth the effort. The bus-stop is conveniently located outside the door. Buses to the adjoining resort of Zurs also stop here and take 30 mins.
According to staff, the hotel is not typically accessible by ski unless you are expert and know the area very well. Having checked maps, it might have been shorter to walk from the Mooserweg apres-ski area instead of attempting to walk from the village.
DECOR: The hotel has a traditional alpine wooden decor which I found attractive and cosy.
CHECKIN: Arrived at 12noon and a room was available.
ROOM: Our compact room was at the back of the hotel on the first floor, without a balcony and overlooked by a neighbouring house. We had two single beds, with just enough space to move around. Beds were comfortable but not luxuriant. Very little views. It was one of the rooms with a shared bathroom which was a short distance down the corridor, but it appeared as if all other guests on our floor had their own bathrooms.
ATMOSPHERE: Relaxed and friendly. Comfortable. The stairs were very comfortable to walk on for tired and sore feet. The hotel was full with many happy guests. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.
FOOD: Had breakfast buffet and also dined in most evenings. Breakfast was served from 8am only so it was not possible to be first on the slopes when lifts opened at 8:45. The lack of evening meal choice was no problem, and the menu was provided in the morning so you could decide on your evening plans. Staff also made it clear we could ask if we wished to have them prepare an alternative. Would have liked to spend more time in the basement bar but
INTERNET: Wifi was available in the reception area but intermittent in our room. Didn't use it because it was costly - €6 per day.
AGAIN? Yes, the distance from the lifts was very little disadvantage even when going to the village in the evenings. Better value than the central hotels.
