This is the best place I have stayed in Mayrhofen. The accommodation was excellent. Clean fresh and decorated recently by the looks of it. The rooms were spacious. 4 person apartment which consisted of 1 double room en-suite with kitchenette and other room double room with en suite opposite joined by a corridor. First class service by the host, friendly and accommodating. Ski bus about 3-5 minute walk away. Will be staying here again. Thanks Petra
