“Best hotel in St Anton Trish and John Pendleton”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

20th July 2014. We stayed at this fantastic hotel as part of a motorbike tour of Germany and Austria, We are no strangers to hotels in the area but this has proven to be the best hotel we have stayed in by far. The hosts are very friendly and hospitable, and made us feel at home immediately on our arrival The hotel is absolutely beautiful. The staff all friendly and professional. As previously reviewed, the breakfast is of an extremely high standard and beautifully presented. In general, people travel to St Anton in the skiing season, we travel in the summer. This small village is beautiful and ideal for walking: beautiful scenery, flowers everywhere, cows with bells, and clean air. We cannot recommend the hotel highly enough and hope to return in the near future. Our one regret is that we did not stay longer

We had a wonderful weekend at Himmelhof. This Hotel is amicable decorated, freshly renovated and has not lost it's family touch to it. The owners are picture-perfect-hosts and make sure you feel comfortable. Also you can tell, the working environment there is highly taken care of (Lots of laughter in the morning between the employees and the owners).
Breakfast is of high standard and afternoon cake is complementary. These owners do know how to spoil you.
The wellness area in the basement is beautiful and thought through (deep sink to dip into cold water after Sauna, Lounge area with calm music, complimentary Tea and nuts).
The apartments (203) we had was spacious and of such tasteful alpine decoration only a true Bavarian like myself would not find to be Kitsch but almost inspiring :-)

St.Anton is a skiing metropolitan place in Tyrol, but we were there during the month of July so luckily no "Apré ski Party central". Keep in mind, this is in the middle of "downtown" St.Anton, but it also is a very small little village which is nice to stroll on a warm summer evening.

We are most definitely coming back (outside of skiing season, that is ;-))

Room Tip: All rooms seem to have a balcony, wooden floors and are spacious enough. You wont make a wrong choic...

I have been to the Himmlhof for the last three years and each time I have had the most wonderful experience. The owners are so welcoming, accommodating and friendly. The service and facilities are excellent. There is nothing so relaxing as returning after a day of skiing to this warm hotel to have delicious afternoon tea and then time in the wellness centre downstairs. I shall continue to come back. Staying at the Himmlhof has made my trips to St Anton so very enjoyable.

I'd heard quite a bit about St. Anton before finally having a chance to make it out there, and was very excited for the experience. After about 12 hours of traveling by plane and bus, we arrived at the Himmlhof and received a wonderfully warm reception from Margherita and Sebastian, the hotel's proprietors. Immediately we felt like family--a feeling that persisted throughout our weeklong stay. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the location is perfect--close to everything but thankfully off the noisy, main thoroughfare through town. (The revelers in St. Anton are a rowdy bunch and party late into the night, making that buffer block a valuable asset).

And that breakfast--I don't think any breakfast could ever compare. So much of everything you could possibly want, and so delicious! I still dream about breakfast at the Himmlhof.

There's a wonderful spa on the lower level as well; great for relaxing after a rigorous day on the slopes. If you want a larger swimming/spa experience, the hotel is just a three-minute walk to the Schwimmbad.

Overall, it was really the perfect place to stay in St. Anton. Gracious hosts, ideal location, comfortable, clean rooms, nice amenities and the best breakfast you'll ever have. I would recommend it to anyone and would absolutely stay there again in I'm lucky enough to make it back to St. Anton.

Room Tip: The back side of the hotel is probably quietest, as it's further from the noise of the main drag...

Having enjoyed several annual January skiing vacations to the Himmllhof, St Anton with the always delightful Marguerita & Sebastian Penz, we had a special adventure with a return trip in March with the entire family in tow -- all our children, spouses and grand-kids (including 7 mo. old Addie!). Our family shared the "home away from home" warmth that the Penz' so easily provide. Several enjoyed guided off-piste skiing as recommended by Sebastian and experienced a special St Anton that will last a lifetime. My wife & I look forward to next January and again returning to the Himmlhof, a wonderful small hotel garni!!!

Room Tip: The new 2nd floor suites are primo!!

Located centrally, but importantly off the main sometimes rowdy main thoroughfare (late at night), this is a splendid traditional building which radiates warmth and quality. I have planned to stay here for years and finally made it in April 2014. We had a junior suite which was excellent. The owners are welcoming as are all other staff. One main advantage for us was the lack of 5 course evening meal!! Previously we have always stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels Half-board. After an afternoon of Après ski revelry up the mountain, sometimes getting through 5 courses is the biggest challenge of the day. I will go again

Our family had an amazing week in St Anton just before Christmas last year 2013 . Staying at the HImmlhof made it all very special. Sebastian and Margherita are exceptional hosts.
Very smart 2 bedroom apartment with great facilities for a a family of 4. We all loved the hearty breakfasts and substantial afternoon snacks. My 5 and 6 year old children
were truly spoilt by all the wonderful staff .
We loved it so much, we re- booked for next season before our departure !!
