- Half Board
- Close to the resort centre
- Access to wellness facilities
- Ski Room
- Free Wi-fi
This boutique hotel is a friendly pick on the edge of St Johann. It's a short stroll from the pretty, pedestrianised town centre, and you can walk to the slopes from here too. They're a little further on though, so if you'd rather get the bus, hop on in town and you'll be at the lifts in just 5 minutes.
You can't miss the hotel – it's painted in a cheery red colour and has big balconies and sloped roofs made of dark wood. It stands out against the white of the snow, and that contrast continues on the inside too, where the décor's an eclectic mix of styles. Each room's unique, but they all follow the same theme when it comes to bold colours, patterns and prints. The only exception is the spa, which is decorated with natural wood and lots of creamy tones – spot-on for relaxing. Turn up the heat in the sauna and steam room, or make the most of your free entry to the nearby wellness centre Panorama Badewelt. There are indoor and outdoor pools where you can take a dip and swim a few lazy lengths – bliss.

About St Johann in Tirol
St Johann is part of the Schneewinkel pass, which offers a total of 182km of runs. Even though Kitzbuhel is only just over the mountain, the two aren't lift-linked due to bureaucratic conflicts. There are only 60km of pistes locally and these are very much for beginners and lower intermediates. This is predominantly a family resort or a place to learn. This is equally true for boarders, with the ski school and childcare facilities further emphasising the beginner/learner element of the resort. Most of the slopes are north facing so snow is pretty well preserved, but the resort has a good record for snow anyway. This does mean that if snow fails in other areas, St Johann can become overrun by day-visitors, with the same holding true for weekends. 'Langlaufers' have an impressive 75km of trails to use.
The village itself is traditional and traffic-free, with lots of good restaurants and reasonably quiet nightlife. It is quite a busy place and most people stay in hotels that are located near to the lifts, although it is still a five minute journey. For those who don't want to ski, there are plenty of other things to do. St Johann has its own railway station, so access from Salzburg or Innsbruck is very easy.
Overall, St Johann in Tirol is a good spot for a family ski holiday in the Austrian Tyrol, with reasonable skiing and a traditional mountain village. This may not be the best if you want tough terrain and challenging skiing/boarding.
