“Fantastic stay in St. Anton”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

This hotel has 9 rooms and is operated by the Kossler family - Karin, Peter & their son Max.

We are a family of 4 and stayed here 7 nights. We had a family suite on the 2nd floor which had 2 separate bedrooms, WC, shower room and entry storage for coats etc & private outdoor balcony. Our room was very clean and had plenty of closet and shelving space for ski clothes storage.

The location is perfect as the hotel is just around the corner from the very busy pedestrian zone (Dorfstrabe) but you'd never know it as at night it was very quiet. Karin made dinner reservations for us every night and all of the restaurants were excellent.

The breakfast buffet was included and every morning they offered fresh eggs w/ bacon or ham, fresh fruits, cured meats, cheeses, rolls, pastries & cereals - really anything you would want for breakfast.

We rented our skis from Hannes Schranz who has a ski shop right next to the Post Hotel. Schranz also stores the your skis & boots every evening so that you don't have to carry them back to the hotel. It's a 2-3 minute walk from Schranz to the Galzigbahn. Schranz also has a boot warmer rack so the your boots are toasty warm every morning. You get a 10% discount from the ski shop for staying at Dorfplatz - Karin gives you a certificate.

Karin & Peter made fondue dinner for the hotel on New Years Eve which was a lot of fun. Peter was on the Austrian ski team in the early 90s and competed in the downhill events.

If you arrive by train, there is no need for a car. 5 minute walk to the train station and everything in town is within a walkable distance.

All in all, I'd highly recommend this hotel. The Kossler family made our stay in St. Anton a memorable one!

Opted for a superior double but we were still Surprised by how spacious our room was, especially what good value it was. nice toiletries in bathroom too.
Lovely breakfast with decor and crockery that was really nice - owner clearly proud of this rather than using glasses etc. that she doesn't case if guests break.
Good location. Owner suggested a walk to the waterfall which was perfect for me as I was pregnant and couldn't do a long hike, so genuinely helpful.
Nice restaurant next door - v handy as night we arrived it was bucketing down.

we stayed here four nice during our sty in St. Anton. The hotel is situated less than 10 minutes walking from the railway station, and is situated in the center of the town.

when we arrived, Karin gave us the name of a ski rental shop where we could hire skis, and where they kept our skis after the day, so you didn´t need to carry them around. We even got 10 % discount. She also bought skipasses for us and recommended restaurants for us, which were really good. Peter explained how to drive the white ring and gave good advices for this.

The rooms are big and clean with good beds. The hotelis very cosy and is nicelys decorated.

Breakfast is superb with good choices and fruit. The tables were decorated nicely.

Thank you for a very nice stay, Berge group.

Overall the hotel represented very poor value compared with what you can get in other ski resorts. This hotel was our only stay in St. Anton so I cannot say how does it compare with others in the same village but I very confident that you can find a lot cheaper hotels with the same amenities.

The service was really awful. A lot of times there was nobody at the reception and when there was, the rudeness was just amazing! My wife was almost verbally assaulted when she decided to explore the hotel.

From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. We were warmly greeted by Karin, and plans were immediately made for getting ski passes and ski rentals. Karin took care of everything. The hotel is spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. It is easy to see that Peter and Karin take great pride in their hotel. It is reflected in everything from the decorating to the cleanliness to the way they treat their guests. It is like being a guest in their own home. The daily breakfast was delicious and satisfying. The breakfast staff including Karin were attentive and very friendly and helpful. Peter is a ski guide as well and kept our 18 year old son occupied with off piste skiing for 2 days. He had the time of his life. Peter not only took him to great skiing, he also gave history and nature lessons!! Karin also will recommend restaurants and make reservations for you. Every recommendation was excellent. As far as ski rental they have a relationship with a shop near the lifts to get ski equipment and leave your shoes while you ski. The location of the hotel is very close to everything you want in St Anton, but in a very quiet area off of the main street. My wife is very fussy about the cleanliness of hotel bathrooms, and states that this hotel has the cleanest bathroom we have ever seen in a hotel. Again spotless!! Overall we felt like part of the Kossler family of Karin, Peter and their young son Maximillian. Without hesitation we will stay at Hotel am Dorfplatz again. Hopefull next year for another ski holiday.
THANK YOU Kossler Family,Karin and Peter for a perfect stay.

This is very clean and charming hotel located in the heart of town but away from the main street which can be noisy at night. The rooms are large and confortable. The breakfast room is bright and tastefully decorated and the food very fresh and well presented. Karin, one of the owners, gave us a number of recommendatons for our evening meals which were spot on the mark. The hotel has an arrangement with a local sports store(located about 70 metres away from the lifts) to leave your skis and boots each day. Even though the walk from the hotel to the lifts was only 3 or 4 mins this arrangement proved very convenient and allowed our group to stroll back through the shops or have a drink after finishing on the slopes without carrying our gear or wearing ski boots.

The hotel is centrally located in St. Anton-- very close to lifts and ski-rental shops; it is spotlessly clean; the rooms are comfortable and attractive. Breakfast is a great meal, with fresh fruits and a broad selection of meats, cereals and fruits. Both Peter and Karin are extremely friendly and anxious to be helpful with all requests and questions.
I would warmly recommend the Hotel am Dorfplatz to anyone looking for a great holiday in the town that offers the best skiing in Austria.
