How to Get There
We we were initially a bit put off by the photography of the hotel but booked anyway as we were keen to ski in kronplatz and took faith in the ratings and reviews. We had no reason to be worried everything was truly excellent. Good concierge, great food, attractive spa. Staff spoke good english and were very friendly. Really good atmosphere at the bar in the evening. It is not convenient for the ski fields but hotel bus service works well and it is nice to have walking access to village. Skiing at Kronplatz is also to be recommended though pistes can be busy at weekends. For Mirabell only suggestions are to get more professional marketing materials made and also to make the hotel ski bus run a little later in the evening to allow for some apres ski at Olang.
We visited Mirabell for winter/Christmas holidays. Our aim was to have ski lessons for all family but it has all ended up as something much more thanks to our excellent hotel choice.
Starting from ski, we've chosen a ski school based on recommendation from the hotel at booking time. The hotel offers daily shuttle service to and from Kronplatz plus excellent storage for skis and boots in the basement in secure warm lockers.
The hotel is a true 5-star gem which despite the luxuries maintains a very warm country atmosphere throughout, from the lobby to the bar, restaurant and the rooms thanks to extensive use of wood. Common areas as well as the room are very clean and despite freezing cold outside, you are very comfortable with a t-shirt inside. We have not used much of the wellness facilities but whatever, we've used (the pool - indoor/outdoor with two Jacuzzi areas and the kids sauna and steam bath ) were great and lots of fun. The kids loved going out from the indoor pool to the outdoor with snow around yet with very warm water while I loved the pool loungers which incline either way so that you can relax with your legs high (very nice after tiring ski sessions).
The food (3/4 board) is amazing at all times. We had breakfast, afternoon snacks, deserts, salad and soup and finally, the dinner. I really appreciated the soup after returning from ski while dinner has mostly (except Xmas eve) been a la carte with plenty of choice. Our last night had "deserts from the buffet" and was literally hard to choose what to have (or better what not to have): everything looked so delicious! Kids menu was nice too but could be extended with pizza choice especially since we've been in Italy.
Finally, the staff, despite that English is not so fluent among them, is always there to greet you with a smile and assist with any request you may have.
In conclusion, we are all very pleased with our stay and if I went to South Tyrol again, I would definitely stay at the Mirabell again.
It is difficult to choose which is best part of this hotel. Service is great with very friendly staff. Food is on highest level from breakfast to dinner. Spa zone is very relaxing with professional fiziotherapeutist. And finnaly, in winter time ski area plan de corones is giving you opportunity for active holiday. It is third time we have visited Mirabel and most certanly we will come again...maybe already this spring
