We spent Christmas at the Alpenhotel Tirol. I can confirm all of the positive comments in previous reviews - especially those regarding the excellent food, high standards of service and the warm welcome. We arrived on Christmas Eve, and signs of the festive season were very low key - as is the Austrian way. It's a quiet hotel, with a good mixture of predominantly German couples and family groups there.
As mentioned by other reviewers, the approach to the hotel is via a steep slope; it's quite difficult going up with luggage and coming down in ski boots. This is the main reason I can only grade the hotel as 4 out of 5 as I slipped once, and we had to side-step down when the hill was icy. Our Crystal reps helped us with the luggage on arrival and departure without being asked.
Skiing at nearby Ischgl is excellent. Lift queues at Silvrettabahn tend to be longer than those at Fimbabahn, the next stop. The two days we tried to ski at nearby Wirl were affected by bad weather, but it seems a pleasant albeit small area. Ski buses are frequent at key times - but they are very crowded.
Don't miss the barrel-plank races on Tuesday evenings in Galtur, near the sport centre.
In summary, it's a great hotel - but take care with that hill!
