Innsbruck, Tirol, and Vorarlberg Hotels

In Innsbruck travelers do not seem to stay long, so there is a fast turnover and, almost always, a room to be had. Travelers opt to set up their base not in town but overlooking it, on the Hungerburg Plateau to the north, or in one of the nearby villages perched on the slopes to the south. In any case, the official Innsbruck Reservation Center, online at www.innsbruck.info

or www.ski-innsbruck.at, offers a booking source for Innsbruck and the surrounding villages.

Book in advance if you're traveling in the region, especially Vorarlberg, in the winter high season and in July and August. Room rates include taxes and service and, almost always, a breakfast buffet. In the resort towns dinner will be included. Halb pension (half-board), as plans that include breakfast and dinner are called, is usually the best deal. Hotel rates vary widely by season, the off-peak periods being March–May and September–November. Most hotels now take credit cards. Note that the most expensive hotels in the posh resort towns of Zuers/Lech, Kitzbühel, St. Anton, and Sölden rooms can occasionally reach as high as €400. If you're out for savings, it's a good idea to find lodgings in small towns nearby rather than in the bigger towns or in the resorts themselves; local tourist offices can help you get situated, possibly even with accommodations in pensions (simple hotels) or Bauernhöfe (farmhouses).

Keep in mind that in hotel saunas and steam baths, nude people of both genders should be expected. Children under certain ages are usually not admitted.
