Our family (2 adults with 2 young adults) visited this hotel for six days/five nights. We had two nicely appointed rooms with balconies with incredible views of the Hintertux Glacier. This is a prime location for hard core skiers. Our son, an expert skier, was so excited that he could hardly wait to hit the slopes everyday. Skiers can reach the glacier base by complimentary shuttle bus in about 5 minutes. Having an equipment room with easy access to the shuttle pickup was a plus. Buses at the bottom of the hill from the hotel can take you down the valley to other ski locations or Mayrhofen.
To say we loved the food here, is just an understatement. Definitely worthwhile to get the half board meals. It was exceptional! From the local dairy products and fresh produce, to the fine selection of game meats, this hotel restaurant was out to please all palates. Not one of us left disappointed! The wine list, which had enough variety of Austrian and other choices, allowed us to enjoy something different each night.
During the day, I personally enjoyed the wonderful spa areas and felt like I had a private pool and jacuzzi. A perfect spot to read, relax and view the mountains. Room service at lunchtime was possible, but I also enjoyed the free afternoon snacktime that was available as part of our package.
The only two "nits" were limited wi-fi access to a room in back of the bar (or if you leaned your ipad/computer near the bedroom window area) and the bar area was so smoky that it filtered into the beautiful lobby sitting area.
Memories of this trip will last for a long, long time! We are all ready to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Above the roofs of Hintertux - on the sunny side with the best view of the glacier The Alpenbadhotel Hohenhaus is situated away from the high street but still in a central location in Hintertux. Offering the best view of the imposing Hintertux Glacier, the Hohenhaus is located in a uniquely beautiful, sunny, and quiet spot. The Hintertux Glacier cable car is only 3 minutes away. As the only hotel in Hintertux we take our guests directly to the bottom station with our "Hohenhaus Express". From there, you can also visit the second large-scale ski area in the region, the "Ski and Glacier World Zillertal 3000" (about 10 minutes on the Tux sport bus). Downhill on the "Schwarze Pfanne" slope you can ski right to our hotel from the end of November to the middle of April, on a path that branches off from the main downhill slope, used by walkers as well as skiers. The Hohenhaus is ideally suited for winter walkers, toboggan riders, or dog owners. The illulminated "Hintertux Panorama Path" starts just outside the hotel and leads straight to the bottom station of the glacier cable car (about 30 min). In addition, the walking path to the toboggan hut "Bichlalm" also starts behind the Hohenhaus (about 1 hour). The Hohenhaus is well known for its spacious wellness area. The "Alpenbad" thermal bath and the sauna village "Old Hintertux" (7 different saunas) were built in a unique and distinctive style; more about that in "Wellness and Spa". We would be very happy to be able to welcome you at our hotel. All the best from Hintertux, and the team of the Alpenbadhotel Hohenhaus ... more less
