This Crystal 'chalet hotel' is a good base for a holiday in Kitzbuhel for those on a budget. Rooms, although a little old fashioned, are of a reasonable size and with en suite facilities. The location isn't ideal but it's not awful either. It's a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Hahnenkahm gondola, which is where you want to go most mornings; there is a bus from near the Hofer for those who are happy to wait, but the bus back goes all round the town before returning to the hotel so it's quicker to walk.
Excellent staff team provided good service; and the beer (good) and wine (barely drinkable) is free until 10pm for residents. The food was very unadventurous and bland, bordering on canteen style and was a disappointment for me, though most people seemed happy with it. Breakfasts were ok. There is a sauna though it was never used during the rather warm week in late March when I was there.
The Crystal ski guides/resort representatives were very good - they also cover guests staying in a number of hotels across the town.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel Hofer is ideally located about 2 - 3 minutes walk from the bustling pedestrianised town centre of Kitzbuhel where you'll find everything from festivals, brass bands and markets. After all the excitement of the town centre you can come back to the hotel and relax in our friendly and welcoming bar which comes complete with sky TV. Alternatively, catch the last of the afternoon sun outside on the terrace. We are a small and friendly British run hotel. We offer bed and breakfast or half board all for a very competitive price. ... more less
