The room was small but I booked the last one. However the bed was very comfortable, the shower was very powerful and hot. Decent TV channels, if you’re wondering. Lots of parking spaces. It’s almost impossible to get lost. Very quiet, away from the busiest areas of Mayrhofen, a walk along the river will lead to other restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.
