Iglu Ski Expert Review If you are a keen skier or snowboarder the location of Hotel Strass is perfect. You are right in the middle of town and next to the main Penken gondola giving you the best access to the slopes and the best access to the bars, restaurants and shops in Mayrhofen – what else do you need? As well as all the resort’s amenities on the doorstep, the hotel has everything you need for a fantastic week. There are multiple lounge areas, a large in-house spa area with a pool, gym and sauna, 2 restaurants, 4 bars and a nightclub underneath the hotel. The hotel is very grand and furnished beautifully. The spa area is one of the nicest I’ve ever seen! The rooms are well sized and everything is kept in tip-top condition. The games area has a few squash courts, pool table, table tennis, and is a haven for kids. The hotel is large and spread out across multiple buildings so your room may not be in the main building with all the communal spaces but it will be quieter. It is without doubt the best located hotel in Mayrhofen and was my favourite of all the hotels.
Sport & Spa Hotel Strass, Mayrhofen, Austria
In the resort centre, right next to the Penken gondola.
Great spa with pools, saunas and separate family area.
Spend an evening in the hotel's three bars and nightclub.
The Strass is one of the most popular hotels in Mayrhofen, and spending a week here will soon make you see why.
Right next to the Penken gondola, in the centre of Mayrhofen, the Sport & Spa Hotel Strass has a pretty unbeatable location. The Penken is your gateway to the Zillertal – possibly the most famous ski area in Austria.
The Strass sprawls across several buildings, and the main hotel is made up of two wings, connected centrally by the main entrance and reception areas. Rooms are available in both the Strass and the Sport wings and, whichever one you stay in, you'll have access to all of the hotel's facilities.
That includes the superb spa and leisure facilities. Located in the Sport Wing, the impressive spa covers three floors and offers a Sauna World with Finnish, Roman and organic saunas for over 16s, plus a family spa where swimsuits are required. There are also hot tubs, relaxation areas, a fitness room and three swimming pools. For an extra treat, choose from the wide range of health and beauty treatments – everything from massages to facials is offered at the hands of the experienced staff.
If you’ve got energy to burn, head to the games room for billiards or table tennis, or challenge someone to a game of squash, while the kids have fun in the playroom.
After dinner, you can head to the famous après-ski bar, Ice Bar, the sports bar with snooker, darts and table football, or the soundproofed Arena nightclub.
