When I came back from middle Italy in June 2010, I didn't want to drive up across Fernpaß at dawn and was looking for a place to rest. Hotel Stern was located just off the main road to Fernpaß and since it had a nice and very shady garden AND had the famous Schlutzkrapfen on their menu, I decided to stay.
Hotel Stern is a family hotel with many offers for families with kids. This can make it a bit noisy during the typical holiday times but early June it was rather quiet. I liked my stay, the room was big (double bed = two beds together), separate toilet and ensuite bathroom (shower and tub) and a small balcony with a nice view to the west and the mountains.
Breakfast: very big variety with cold cuts, marmelade, milk, orance juice, bread and rolls, yoghurt, coffee, tea, all you would wish for. Continental type though.
Price in early June 2010: 50 Euro, including breakfast.
Unique Quality: I loved their garden with huge chestnut trees. It was a warm evening and that's why I have decided to eat outside. The Schlutzkrapfen were excellent and a nice way to end my Italy trip. Schlutzkrapfen are famous for northern Italy and Austria. I paid 12 Euro for Schlutzkrapfen, 0,5 l of apple juice mixed with water and an espresso.
From A12/E60 (motorway between Innsbruck and Bregenz) leave at Mötz and drive to the north. Turn left (west) at the small village of Fronhausen/Krebsbach into regional road 189. Fernpaß will be signposted. Obsteig is the next village. Hotel Stern is located on the right (north of the street).
