“A thoroughly enjoyable place to stay in Kitzbuhel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

My friends and I have just spent a great week at the Hofer.
The staff had a great 'can do' attitude with nothing too much trouble.
We enjoyed our days on the slopes skiing and snowboarding, and the packed lunches provided were always good.
The evening meals were excellent.
Great 3 course meals with a good red wine and great service made for a perfect start to some of the best evenings we have had.
Thanks to the Crystal staff for making a holiday which we will long remember.

We had a great week in Kitzbuhel, staying at the Hotel Hofer. The staff were great, very friendly and provided a really quick and efficient dinner service.

The room we had was large enough, clean and comfortable....even had BBC1 on the TV if you ever spend more than a few mins in your room. We had a large balcony on the top floor with views across the town and onto the main slope. Our room also had a decent bathroom with everything we needed and a good shower. NB if you need a hair dryer, then take one.

The hotel is ideally located in between the 2 main lifts, 5 mins to the Kitbuhel Horn and 10 mins to the Hannenkamn. If you go to the Hannenkamn, ensure you find the lift, just down from the bus stop, through the shopping centre, which cuts out an extra 5 min walk. I'm not sure why people have made comments on here regarding it being in a bad location - it isn't!

Crystal provide a 3 course meal every day apart from Weds, you have a choice of 2 dishes for each course and the food is of a good standard, probably better than you'd expect.

All in all, we definitely recommend this hotel and it is great value for money!

Room Tip: We were in room 330 - right at the top so a few flights of stairs but quiet, comfortable and had a g...

This Hofer hotel is a good base for those on a budget. Rooms, although a little dated, are large with en suite facilities. There were plenty of toiletries supplied. We were a large family party and all agreed the food was excellent. Lager was very nice but the wine was just drinkable. Tea/coffee is availabe 24hrs. It was an easy walk to the centre of town, once you know where the lift is!!! The best part of the holiday is the staff. Always cheerful/helpful and couldn't do enough for you.

Hotel was ok, decent location, close to free resort bus. A bit of trek to the other end of town and to the main bar areas but not more than a 10 minute walk. The place could do with a spruce up but it is a standard run of the mill crystal club hotel and as with many places, the staff make up for any negatives. Decent size rooms with en suite, good food, good bar, good ski locker room. Would recommend to others. Nightlife is great

Went as a family party. Skiiers and non-skiiers had a great time. Unfortunately one of our party was ill but the lovely staff could not do enough to help. Always asking if there was anything they could get for her. The rep was also very good. The food was good & lager nice although the wine was just drinkable as said in previous reviews. An added bonus was the packed lunches as Kitzbuhel is very expensive but beautiful.

Room Tip: Go for top of the hotel in the Eaves. Quieter and we had to biggest bathroom ever in 329.
