- Sport & Spa Hotel Strass description
The Strass is one of the most popular hotels in Mayrhofen, and spending a week here will soon make you see why.
Right next to the Penken gondola, in the centre of Mayrhofen, the Sport & Spa Hotel Strass has a pretty unbeatable location. Built in 2015, the Penken is one of the most modern gondolas in the world, and considerably cut down queuing times. It’s your gateway to the Zillertal – possibly the most famous ski area in Austria.
The Strass sprawls across several buildings, and the main hotel is made up of two wings, connected centrally by the main entrance and reception areas. Rooms are available in both the Strass and the Sport wings and, whichever one you stay in, you'll have access to all of the hotel's facilities.
That includes the superb spa and leisure facilities. Located in the Sport Wing, the impressive spa covers three floors and offers a Sauna World with Finnish, Roman and organic saunas for over 16s, plus a family spa where swimsuits are required. There are also whirlpools, relaxation areas, a fitness room and three swimming pools. For an extra treat, choose from the wide range of health and beauty treatments – everything from massages to facials is offered at the hands of the experienced staff.
If you’ve got energy to burn, head to the games room for billiards or table tennis, or challenge someone to a game of squash, while the kids have fun in the playroom.
Dining is always a delight in the extensive Sporthotel restaurant and winter garden, which serves tasty half board meals inspired by classic Austrian dishes and international favourites. And for after dinner, there are several bars to retreat to, including the famous après ski Ice Bar, the sports bar with snooker, darts and table football, and the soundproofed Arena nightclub.

Austrian twin beds
Austrian twin beds are very common in Central Europe. They’re simply one large bed frame containing two single mattresses, both with separate duvets and linen sets, that cannot be separated. Separate twin beds are less common and can often be head to head beds, rather than side by side, if they are available.
*These rooms are located close to the Ice Bar and may experience some noise until the bar closes at 10pm (music ends at 9.30pm).
