Mayrhofen is a fully functioning town with plenty of accommodation available, ranging from small self-catered studios to plush hotels. With the high number of places to stay it shouldn’t be too difficult to find a bargain in the low season, or to negotiate unusual dates for a short break. The tourist office in Mayrhofen is more helpful than in a lot of other resorts and it’s a good starting point when looking for last-minute bargains. They’ve saved our skin many times and can recommend plenty of good self-catering options. If you are arriving on Saturday bear in mind that the shops all close at lunchtime and don’t open again until Monday!
If you can afford a stay in one of the ski resorts many excellent hotels you will find service standards very high. The 3-star Garni is recently renovated and is in a very convenient spot, whilst the Landhotel Denggerhof is the best choice if you’re after all out pampering.
There are many self-catering chalets in Mayrhofen to choose between, but disappointingly for some there are very few catered chalets given the size of the resort. The friendly, English-run Haus Luxus offers reasonable half-board prices in a well-situated contemporary chalet.
The small villages surrounding Mayrhofen offer slightly cheaper accommodation, and although the ski bus stops running at 5pm, the Zillertalbahn offers an hourly train or coach service until about 10pm. If you are on a very tight budget take a look at the Dutch hostel Saiki just outside the town (10 minute walk) where a bed costs as little as €15 per night and breakfast can be added for around €5.
