Design Hotels in Tirol

Hotel Madlein
The Madlein is a pioneer in design architecture in the Alps. The new Madlein was born out of the necessity to merge several buildings into one. Designed by Mescherowsky, the hotel is characterized by composed simplicity. Only wood, glass and stone were used to create this Zen-like atmosphere. The nine new suites, which are accessed via a glass staircase, boast clear and clean lines that blend to create an urban yet tranquil atmosphere. The rooms are separated by simple glass walls, which, together with large window panes create an endless play of light and shadow. Located in the heart of trendy Ischgl, the Madlein manages to blend the contrasts between a vibrant après-ski scene and a Zen Buddhism inspired interior.

Aparthotel Anton
“The Anton is like an expedition into the new world of Alpine architecture, a dream about Tirolean holiday culture turned into space”, is what the trade press says. The centrally located Anton is built in modern style. The sweeping façade is covered in wood shingles for warmth, the grass – or snow – covered flat roof almost blends into the hill. Designed by Pöschl/Comploj, the décor is characterized by simplicity. The hotel’s many large glass walls blend the interior with the exterior, fusing them together. The functional rooms can be connected or separated and allow the hotel to provide accommodations for groups or families from two to eight people. Adjoining the restaurant is a transparent playroom for children.

Waldklause
The new house was built in a forested area near the Aqua Dome. This modern wood, glass and stone building caters to eco-conscious guests with a high body and health awareness and a high level of individuality. The single building complexes are separated by a light flooded courtyard and linked by a wooden bridge. The beds are positioned in front of large windows affording views of the magnificent Ötztal Mountains. The living area is behind the beds and raised by two steps. This way the beds are hidden from the view and when entering the room you feel as if you had stepped into a private apartment. All rooms are soundproof to the outside to ensure a pleasant and restful stay.

Skihotel Galzig
Located in the center of town and near the Galzigbahn lift station, the Galzig is a modern 4-star hotel made from aluminum, glass, wood and regional stone. The first floor has a glass and aluminum façade for maximum transparency. The hotel offers a total of 16 double rooms, one Junior suite and one apartment. The lime-oak furniture goes well with the dark oak parquet floor. All rooms boast oversized sliding doors which open up to stunning mountain scenery and allow daylight in.

Hotel ASI-Lodge Tirol
In 2006 Heinz & Mathoi & Streli were commissioned to revitalize the existing hotel. The team of architects added a rectilinear three-storey accommodation wing on a north-south axis. With its vertically structured larch wood façade the new building forms a deliberate contrast to the white base of the old house while at the same time conveying the hotel’s philosophy: to offer modern architecture in a natural ambiance.

Hotel Lux Alpinae
The Lux Alpinae is symbolic for a new generation of modern design hotels in Tirol. The bipartite edifice, which is connected by a panorama lift, seems to be growing out of the side of the mountain. The interstice between house and hill is roofed over, with the concrete surface being used as climbing wall. Arcades lead the way to the 28 rooms, all of which have large glass walls and south-facing balconies. Guests can choose between “red” and “blue” rooms. The bathrooms are also glass-walled and thus integrated into the rooms. Rooms are equipped with cell phones.

Parkhotel Hall
When the architects Dieter Henke and Marta Schreieck were asked to revamp the old Turmhotel they were confronted with two tasks: to sanitize the old building designed by Lois Welzenbacher in 1931 and to add a rotund glass structure north-west of the existing building. Today the beautiful ensemble offers top infrastructure for seminars and meetings; all rooms are equipped with the latest laptops and free Internet access.

Hotel am Bahnhof
This complex in front of the train station was designed by Manzl-Ritsch-Sandner in 2005. The 125-meter long hotel was built perpendicular to the Inntal valley and sits atop stilts as some kind of “floating counterpart” to the station. This island-like edifice bases on the ambivalence between calmness and dynamism and allows for a free energy-flow on the new Südtirolerplatz. The hotel makes up about a third of the entire complex, the remainder consists of offices, a café-cum-restaurant with a terrace facing Südtirolerplatz. The hotel’s 75 rooms all have Internet access or W-LAN.

Kitzhof/Kitzbühel
At the ****Kitzhof modern design meets traditional materials. Designed by the Kitzbühel architect Werner Aschaber and the interior designer Ursula Schelle-Müller the hotel has a unique, innovative style. In the lobby and the Kitz lounge a mix of modern and traditional elements is used to create a harmonious ambiance. Natural materials and warm colors provide an atmosphere of subtle elegance. Despite its modern design and clean lines the hotel still offers the traditional warmth for which it is renowned. The beautiful larch floors and the elegant furniture with gray and red loden lend a welcoming and natural feel to the rooms. Only few colors are used – reds, grays and warm wood tones – to create an unobtrusive setting that would not overwhelm the visitor. The Spa is all white minimalism to showcase the Just Pure products and treatments. The garden with sundeck, pond, grass spaces for sunbathing and a modern version of a farmers’ garden were created by the award-winning landscape designer Friedhelm Hellenkamp.

Schwarzer Adler/Kitzbühel
"Traditions revisited" was the guiding principle for the interior design. The clean and modern design features an interaction of concave and convex lines, light and shadow, sweet and woodsy scents. Warm cream and earthy colors, indirect lights, natural oak floors and panels upholstered with felt loden create a soothing and stylish atmosphere. Architect Wolfgang Pöschl, multiple winner of the Austrian Architecture Prize, and his team satisfied the high demands of hotelier Christian Harisch to a stunning degree. At the Schwarzer Adler you won’t find an alpine sauna squeezed in between a Turkish Hammam and an Egyptian steam bath: the hotel is defined by simple elegance and purism. The walls are decorated with large black stone slabs which also encircle the pools and lend a mysterious light to the 3-storye spa. The spa has direct elevator access to the Alps’ longest rooftop pool overlooking Hahnenkamm, Kitzbüheler Horn and Wilder Kaiser. Many of the 88 rooms and suites are decorated in elegant country-house style and offer great comfort. The boutique suites feature functional and minimalist elements combined with natural materials such as loden and leather. The suites all boast private saunas and Bang & Olufsen multimedia centers.

The Penz Hotel
Innsbruck’s first design hotel is the work of celebrity architect Dominique Perrault. The modern structure has an austere yet warm glass façade of black and white window panes which reflect the traditional buildings by which it is surrounded. The 5th floor bar, restaurant and terrace are superb and offer an exquisite view over the rooftops of old Innsbruck. The hotel’s 96 rooms are all state-of-the-art. The Penz, together with the new Rathaus-Galerie shopping mall also designed by Penz Dominique Perrault, has become a new gathering place in the heart of the city.

Hotel Pension Perfler
This small hotel-cum-guesthouse in the Pustertal is the best example that modern architecture is not reserved for big projects. The owners still live in the stereotype old building while the rest of the edifice was carefully modernized and enhanced. The architects created a Mediterranean-like ensemble with an atrium that blends the interior with the exterior. The accommodation wing is slightly raised above ground while the sauna and wellness area is “buried” underneath the atrium. With the new structure, the Hotel Pension Perfler not only offers superb architecture but also a cozy and welcoming ambiance. This successful “relaunch” serves as signal for other small establishments that it is possible for them to stand their ground.

Hotel Adler
The Adler, located in the heart of Ischgl, is a modest yet remarkable building. The hotel’s glass façade symbolizes openness and hospitality, and allows for the maximum use of natural daylight. In the evenings when the building is lit from inside the structure takes on a glow and can be seen from afar. The Adler offers six apartments which are all spacious and functional. And different.
