The weekend before leaving for Berlin, Ste and I enjoyed a short trip to the mountains dedicated to relaxation but also to outdoor activities especially hiking. Hiking is one of my passions of the moment and the perfect base near to absolutely spectacular routes is the hotel Jerzner Hof which is located in Tyrol, more precisely in the Pitztal area. The Austrian Alps are absolutely wonderful and the Tyrol is one of my favorite destinations ever when I want to escape from the busy city life and breathe some fresh air in the mountains. The hotel Jerzner Hof offered everything I needed: a huge spa to relax, a wonderful room with a balcony and a view of the mountains, and a staff attentive to every need that gave us lots of advice on the best hiking trails to to do in the area. We decided to explore the Zirben Park which has an interactive path suitable for adults and children and I had a lot of fun. But the possibilities are really endless and in this little corner of paradise you never really get bored. In winter you can find many ski slopes nearby and many possibilities to practice the winter sport that you prefer. But after having told you about the activity possibilities to do in the area, let’s talk about the hotel specifically. As always, I divided my review into categories: the room, the decor, the spa and the food.
Our room was a wonderful Junior Suite with a balcony and a view of the mountains. The view is really the highlight of the hotel and throughout our stay the weather was really wonderful so we were able to enjoy the spacious balcony. The room has the typical look of a cozy mountain hotel with a lovely canopy bed and wooden headboard and a living area with an alpine style sofa and armchair. The bathroom with tub was very spacious and decorated with marble. The room is also equipped with everything needed for the spa: towels, bathrobes and slippers, but also a backpack to borrow if you want to do some hiking. I love these details that show great attention to the guest.
If the room is furnished in a very traditional and typical way, the rest of the hotel is very modern, especially the bar area where afternoons a snack was served with a small buffet of really delicious desserts. We enjoyed this moment sitting on the outside veranda with a wonderful view. In addition to the bar furnished in a modern style, there are several rooms where to dine; some with a unique and modern style and others more traditional with a wide use of wood and typical decorative elements. I loved this mix of styles that makes this hotel truly one of a kind.
The Spa is huge with several indoor pools at different temperatures, saunas, and Turkish baths. Outside there is a wonderful hot tub and an outdoor pool more like an artificial lake with water not treated by chemicals and with a system of filtering and natural cleaning. Obviously there is also the possibility of getting beauty treatments and massages. The relaxation areas of the Spa are also a lot, from the brightest to the darkest with water beds for complete relaxation. Unfortunately I haven’t taken many photos in the Spa and therefore they don’t give an idea of how big this area was, but I assure you that I was really impressed by it.
Another of the things that I liked the most was the food. Every evening it had a different theme with different uses of the ingredients. The first evening was dedicated to typical Tyrolean foods with a buffet of main courses and a wonderful dessert buffet. In this case the vegetarian options were not present in the main courses but the chefs still came up to us proposing alternatives. The second evening the dishes were served and there was also a vegetarian option for each course, I really appreciated this attention for all food needs. Of course it was all delicious, especially the superlative desserts. I also appreciated that the table was also set every evening differently. In the pictures you can see the setting of the second evening, very romantic and refined. The breakfast was also amazing with an incredible variety to suit all tastes.
