St Anton am Arlberg Accommodation
St Anton has several luxury hotels with excellent wellness facilities and an increasing number of designer boutique hotels. There are also plenty of bed and breakfast guesthouses, chalets and apartments to choose from. The nearby village of St Christoph is much smaller and quieter but also has high quality hotels in a pretty setting.
St Anton Dorf, the centre of St. Anton, is pedestrianised and is the most convenient place to stay for easy access to the main ski lifts, ski schools and numerous shops, restaurants and bars. It’s also a short walk from the railway station and main bus station. Stadl and Oberdorf are as much as 10-20 minutes’ walk uphill from the village centre but the ski bus service is good and free, and ski rental shops in the village typically offer skis and boots storage facilities to avoid walking up and downhill in ski boots and carrying ski gear. Nasserein and St Jakob are 5-20 mins walk east from the centre of St Anton and also served by regular free ski bus service to the high-speed gondola in Nasserein and the bus station in St Anton (close to the lifts).
St Christoph is a picturesque hamlet 7km West of St Anton on the road to Stuben and Zurs. Connected to the main ski area by a high-speed chairlift, St Christoph is at a snow-sure altitude of 1800m and ideal for well-heeled couples and families seeking mostly luxurious 4-5 star accommodation away from the hustle and bustle of St Anton, but with easy access to the ski area.
St Anton Hotels, Guesthouses & Apartments
The 5-star Raffl’s St. Antonerhof, the only 5-star hotel in St Anton, is in the centre of town. It’s a 5 to 10 minute walk to the Galzigbahn but the hotel has its own shuttle if you don’t want the exercise. The best known 4-star hotels are Hotel Schwarzer Adler, the Alte Post and the Sport Hotel but there are many others including designer boutique hotels like Pepi’s Skihotel, and Hotel Rundeck, Hotel Mooser and many more. Cheaper but highly rated 3 star hotels include Hotel Garni Schindler, Hotel Kristal and Hotel Sailer in the centre of the village and Hotel Nassereinerhof in Nasserein.
St Christoph Hotels
St Christoph’s most internationally renowned and luxurious hotel is the 5 star Hotel Arlberg Hospiz . This has one of the most renowned restaurants in the Alps (adults relish the gourmet food and extensive wine list, but for children the highlight tends to be the slide down to the toilets). Slightly less expensive 4 star and 3 star hotels include the family-friendly Hotel Maiensee (4 star). the Alpenhotel St Christoph (4 stars, ski-in, ski-our, good previous customer reviews), or Hotel Ski Austria (3 star, situated next to the lift, good but very Austrian sauna). The Arlberg Hospiz also has a cheaper ‘sister hotel’ (effectively an annex) next door to it, called the The Hospiz Alm Residenzen. The 3-star Gasthof Valluga is about a 3 minute walk from the lift, but if you don’t fancy trudging that far in ski boots carrying your skis, it can arrange overnight storage in a ski hire shop next to the lift. Both the hotel and its restaurant get exceptionally high ratings from previous guests.
