A retreat in the middle of ski paradise
Secluded or in the middle of it all – the perception of St. Christoph lies in the eye of the beholder. Those who want to spend their days on the slopes are definitely in the right place in this historic village at Arlberg pass. While Lech mainly attracts high society and St. Anton a younger, more outgoing clientele, St. Christoph is less about seeing and being seen: Those staying at Hotel Maiensee want to enjoy peace and quiet, spend quality time with their children or partner, enjoy wonderful days on the ski slopes, and experience moments of culinary indulgence. Here you are far away from the hustle and bustle, yet have Austria’s largest ski area right on your doorstep.
When looking out of the window of our hotel in St. Christoph, your gaze wanders far into the snow-covered distance of the Arlberg. Some of the rooms and suites feature magnificent south-facing balconies and are equipped with all mod-cons, e.g. luxurious marble bathrooms and tiled stoves. The public areas of the hotel also exude unparalleled cosiness, starting with our Zirbenstube, one of the most beautiful parlours on the Arlberg with a truly unique flair. When you are sitting in front of the crackling fireplace in the evening and getting nice and cosy, you’ll feel it: The Maiensee is a family-run hotel with plenty of tradition, passion for hospitality, and love for nature.
A holiday home with tradition
Hotel Maiensee has been welcoming tourists in St. Christoph since 1971. What started as a small B&B was gradually transformed into one of the best hotels in all of St. Christoph. Over the decades, the exclusive Alpine home Maiensee has become a 4-star hotel: A dining room was added in 1979, followed by a sauna, an à la carte restaurant, and a two-storey underground car park. In 1999, the hotel was extended by the second “Deluxe” hotel wing, and in 2000, the 250m2 wellness area was added. The lounge and buffet room were extended in 2007. Another new highlight is the Maiensee Burger Bar, which has enriched the hotel’s culinary offering since the 2021-2022 winter season.
Today, Hotel Maiensee represents a family business that delights guests with its warm and cosy yet luxurious atmosphere.
The (mountain) world in view
The idea behind the modern design of the 4-star hotel came from the young host: “When I returned from abroad, 1901 Lounge was the first thing I created. I love the mix-and-match style of new photos, furniture, and lamps in an old ambience with historic panelling. The glass front offers boundless views of the mountains. It feels like being outside, and yet you’re warm and cosy. The romantic candlelight completes the atmosphere.” Stephan Traxl knows that his guests long for premium relaxation: “We’re measured against the world’s greatest. Guests expect from us what they expect from the best hotels. We offer them what they’re looking for, and so much more.”
