We stayed at the Falkensteiner Antholz for 5 nights in May this year (in Spring) and loved it (& the area) so much that we returned specifically in October for 10 nights (to experience the Autumn) even knowing that we had to "suffer" a 20 hour flight from Brisbane, Australia.
SO it must be good ... and it was!
The hotel has it all (for us at least). A great semi-secluded location tucked away at the end of the Antholz/Anterselva valley in South Tyrol. Just the drive from & to the hotel along the open & pleasant (non- commercial) valley road visiting the adjacent regions (incl. the jaw-dropping Dolomites area of spectacular scenery, driving experiences and hiking trails) is a great way to start & finish your daily trips. The hotel's location allows you easy access (within approx. 1.5 hours in any direction) to all the main alpine-type regions of South Tyrol and southern Austria.
We are considering returning again next May for a week or so and spend more time at and around the hotel. The hotel has it all. [I totally agree with GL's review except that we did not have a problem paying for the bottled water at dinner (only 2.5 E)].
We had a junior suite on the top floor facing south with great views. The room was excellent with all modern amenities and a very comfortable bed. The hotel is just as it is on the brochures / promos. (go to the You Tube official hotel promo site - it really is the way it is portrayed). The heated indoor/outdoor pool and the 3 saunas with relaxation areas is something that we really looked forward to in the later afternoon at the end of our day to relax and revitalise before dinner. I have to say that the breakfasts and dinners were excellent, especially the dinners - really 5 star. The hotel is such good value and the service from all the staff was excellent.
We received an added bonus (obviously arranged by the staff) on our first morning when the area received the first early moderate/heavy snow fall of the season. It turned the place into a real winter wonderland for us after leaving the beaches of Queensland in unseasonal 30deg. + temp.
Highly recommended - but don't tell too many people!
