This is certainly one of the nicer ski hotels I have stayed in. The reception staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The room was clean and in a good state of repair, with quite plush carpet and a sofa and chair. The amount of storage wasn't huge, but was sufficient. If you a sharing with anyone other than your partner, do be warned that the bathroom (not the separate toilet) has frosted glass walls and the beds are Austrian twins (i.e. two mattresses in one double frame). Our room had a balcony but you could only really see the road at the back of the hotel (naughty Inghams for not making that clear). I always take earplugs, but it really wasn't too noisy (cars are banned at night so no traffic noise and not that many people on the road at the back). The food in the hotel was very good overall and there was plenty of it for breakfast and especially in the evening. It isn't traditional Austrian food (which is a bit of a pity I thought), and a couple of dishes were a little salty, but overall we enjoyed the variety very much. Again, the staff were very friendly and nice at all times, and made a real effort to engage with the guests (but not in an intrusive way). Having been to St Anton recently, I had thought that Austria had a smoking ban but it seems not in Ischgl and all of the bars in town (including the hotel bars) can be very smoky. Another contrast to St Anton is that the resort clientele seem a bit less internationally diverse and a bit more boorish. Oddly the overall apres scene is much more low key too, and even the table dancing clubs I had heard about are something that you would really have to go looking for (i.e. I wouldn't worry about that if you are going with kids, etc as it is not obvious). It's a short walk (maybe 100 yards, albeit a little uphill) to the lift to the middle of the Dorftunnel, which has a moving walkway to the High Street in one direction and the Fimbabahn in the other. You can also ski back to quite close to the hotel if you are a confident red run skier (or download on the lifts). The hotel charges €10 for unlimited wi-fi per device, which is fair enough compared to roaming charges, but should really be free in this kind of place. My wife had a leg message in the Spa, which she enjoyed, and used the (small) pool. Apparently the temperature was ideal! Overall, if I go back to Ischgl I would stay here again.
If you are at the back of the hotel the tiny balcony only has a view of the side of the road unless...
