-Great location (about 30 seconds from the Nasserein lift and nursery slope area and 10 mins to the centre of town).
-Clean and tidy
-Separate boot room with boot warmers.
-Food was OK but not great and the chalet hosts were pleseant but not spectacular - I wish they'd got more 'stuck in' with us and had more of a laugh - they seemed a bit shy/serious.
-The owners of the chalet live there and clearly smoke in their part of the house which resulted in a smell of cigarettes throughout the chalet (most strong in entrance area). They also have the cheek to then tell guests that it's a non-smoking chalet!
-The interior decor is completely soulless and gives no hint that you're in beautiful alpine village.
-The layout of the breakfast area is rediculous and means a lot of standing up and sitting down during your meal (sounds like a petty thing but it's quite annoying).
-The 'lounge' area feels more like a Dentist's waiting room then a homely relaxation area.
Overall, I'd describe it as functional. It does the job. The location gives it a big boost but it lacks 'wow factor'. Suitable for beginners who want to be close to the nursery slopes and/or groups who are in St. Anton to ski hard and play hard.
I'd say it's less apprioriate for couples looking for a quaint/romantic place to stay.
