“Cheap, central but dated decor and amenities...”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

Pros:
Cheap, central, 3 mins from train/Banhof to all ski areas, great breakfasts, wi-fi hotspot for 5€ daily, easy access ski room, very friendly staff, BBC Entertainment on Ch 39, shops/ski hire & bars <2 mins away
Cons:
No evening meals but options at Berghof across the road, no kettle/drinks in room, awful pillows, paper-thin quilts & rock-hard mattresses, wallpaper stinks of cigarettes, TV in room size of a postage stamp, no communal rest area, no laundry, no washing lines in bathroom for ski kit, heating naff - wet kit next day inevitable.
Summary:
Cheap, better for singles than families, take your own kettle, awful beds & pillows - suggest you go to the family-run Hotel Pramstraller 4* if you can!

We stayed here as a group of 9 in Feb 2012. The hotel is in a good location, towards the more quiet end of town. Having stayed in Mayrhofen previously I don't think that this is a bad thing! There are several ski bus stops less than a minutes walk from the hotel, depending where you want to go, and it's also only about 5 minutes walk (in ski boots!) from the train station, so you can really take full advantage of your lift pass.

The rooms that we had as a group were all spacious, with balconies. The bathrooms are a little small, but the piping hot water in the shower, even at peak times, meant that we didn't care! The rooms are clean and had TV's - only with Austrian channels though. There are safes in the room too, however ours wasn't working, but we just locked valuables away in cases. They state that they change towels twice a week, but ours were changed every day.

The doors to the hotel are locked with a passcode, and then keys are left in a relatively unsecured area, but this is very easily resolved......don't leave your key! There is a ski/board storage area, but it could be warmer and we often found that boots hadn't dried out overnight.

Breakfast is normal for Europe - lots of bread, cheese and ham. There was also a range of pastries, fruit and scrambled eggs.

Dinner is served at the Hotel Berghof which is across the road. The food was fine, on a fixed menu and you are seated in a separate area from the main restaurant. The only problem with the food is that the portion sizes were quite small, which wasn't a problem for me, but the lads in the group would often eat prior to dinner. The rep advised us that there'd been quite a few reports about this, but to be honest, I've had much worse food on ski trips.

All in all, the Pramstraller is a good basic hotel in a good location, in a relatively expensive resort.

A beautiful Austrian village, lots of great places to stay - this was a good location with bus route outside but we used the ski lockers by the Penken gondola so walked each day in our snow boots! Perfect for a pop into the spar or one of the bars/cafes! We were half board but we only ate once in the evening preferring to visit a different restaurant each night! Manis is great for steaks or pizzas, fondue across the road, burgers in Mos - champagne in the harikari bar! Breakfast was lovely in the pramstraller - rooms are basic but cosy and warm - bathrooms serve the purpose - didn't see much of the owners other than at breakfast so make sure you ask for anything then! Great resort families and all ages

Stayed here for 1 weeks skiing from 13th March 2010. Our room was large, with nice table area, big balcony and good views. It was basic but clean and comfortable. The room keys are left in reception each day but this is pretty common in Austria and there was a secure access coded door.
The breakfast was also typical Austrian fare, I don't know what some people expect. There was an excellent selection of breads and the standard meat, cheese and cereal, only thing missing was the boiled eggs!
We took the half board option offered by Crystal and enjoyed really good Austrian 4 course meals in the Hotel Neuhaus each night which is a 2 minute walk. I would highly recommend taking this option there is a choice of main meal each night and the menu is very varied.
The location of Garni Pramstraller is great it was very quiet but close to everything. The Penken Gondola is 5-10 minute walk you can get free ski bus outside but we didn't bother as the walk is pleasant.
For a skiing holiday where you will
not be spending much time in the room and requiring extensive facilities I would definitely recommend the Garni Pramstraller.
