My partner & I stayed at the Alber Hof (Pension Stefan Alber) for 4 nights in January 2010 and were really quite pleased with the accommodation standard. We booked it because of the good value price, inclusive of breakfast and the fact that it was right on the ski bus route, and it turned out to be much better than we expected! The rooms had been recently renovated and were lovely and spacious, with private shower & WC. The hosts, Mr & Mrs Alber were so friendly, and sent us home with home-made soaps and herb salt from their own herb garden. It was so nice of them.
Breakfast each morning was plentiful, and lots of it comes fresh from the farm too, eg. the milk, eggs, butter, and even the apple juice.
Overall, we were really happy. We had hoped to stay closer to St Anton itself, but we couldn't go past the price (€35 pp/pn incl breakfast). The pension is right on the ski bus route too, so you just walk out the door and hop on. The bus comes every 15 mins and takes about 10 mins to get to the main St Anton bus stop, and less to get to the Nasserein lift bus stop. My only gripe was the highly priced and variable taxi fares. We never paid the same price twice, from €11 up to €16.50 to get home after a night out in town.
If we go back, we'll definately stay there again!
