“A little buble of awesomeness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

A group of 8 of us stayed here - Rainer (Manager) and his staff were all excellent, very attentive, and informative about the town, restaurants, bars, and skiing.

The rooms were all very comfortable, each with a large balcony, and the TVs even had English speaking channels (not that we were there to watch TV, but nonetheless a nice treat). The breakfasts were also brilliant. No dinners at the hotel, so we ate in the town every night.

The hotel is a 5 min walk from the bottom of the Narsserain lift, and you can ski to the hotel at the end of the day via the piste under that lift - very handy. The hotel also has a Sauna/relax room which is great after a long day on the slopes!

Money well spent at Hotel Falch - 100% recommend it!

Room Tip: If you are considering going to St Anton from anywhere in the UK/Ireland - fly to Zurich and get the...

Hotel: Lots of alpine wood, decorated with old skiing artifacts, situated up the top of Nasserein which means nice view over the rest of the village and valley, down to the neighbouring villages.

Rooms: Alpine style wooden beds, spacious and very comfortable, very clean rooms, large windows with great views, cable tv.

Food: Its a garni hotel so rooms are priced only for breakfast (frustuck). The breakfasts are continental (breads/cheeses etc.) and more than adequate to kick start the day. For night meals, Nasserein has its own restaurants, but if you want to go out at night into the centre of St Anton, its a comfortable and pleasant stroll into the main center (blizzards notwithstanding). Its too short for a taxi ride home...unless you've really hit the jagermeister or gluhwein hard.

Location: Up on the top of the Nasserein village, and if its Jan/Feb/March there's usually enough snow to ski down to the lift. Otherwise its a fairly short walk down the road to the lift (from memory probably about 100-200 metres). Nasserein is pretty much part of St Anton anyway, but it is big enough and has its own identity, and as a result has its own ski lifts and sports stores for equipment hire and clothing.

Hosts: I found the Falch family to be very warm and hospitable, and their guest book really does have loads of repeat guests from over the years. Just for extra interest, they also happen to have a pedigree skiing history. Ernst Falch was part of the Austrian ski team in the 60s and there are some fascinating articles, medals and other paraphenalia in the hotel reception. Son Martin has won various medals at the Paralympic Games and is a world paralympic triathlete champion. Other son Rainer was also a champion Arlberg skier and has coached world cup skiers. We got some great tips from them about skiing around the region.

A warm welcome from Rainer, manager of this family run hotel, set the mood for our 4 day stay in St Anton. We are a group of three mates (males aged 29) and having a hotel which provides a retreat at the end of a hard days skiing and après is very important to us. Hotel Falch exceeded our expectations.

Rainer, very modest in his manner, is a ski champion and ex-trainer of the international team. The main restaurant area has a trophy cupboard full to the brim. A lovely backdrop to the hotel which has the warmth of a family home, whilst maintaining the feel of a hotel.

Hotel Falch is a traditional Austrian hotel in the Nasserain district of St Anton. The Nasserain region offers ski-to-door and is about a 10 minute walk from the main bar/restaurant area. Taxis are abundant and only cost 10 euros from the main strip.

The rooms are well appointed. We shared a triple room which was well sized with a pleasant bathroom. The television also had Sky Sports which provided an added bonus.

It is difficult to fault the Falch. The breakfast was excellent (traditional), the sauna area downstairs clean and well maintained and the staff fantastic. The hotel also has great views of the mountains.

We look forward to visiting Hotel Falch again and being looked after by Rainer and his team. If I had to make a small request for next year’s stay it would be to ask for the shower to have a wall bracket.
