Simple, clean, comfortable room and bath. Very close to the center. However the restaurant wasn't really up to the task in the summer. Only cold buffet for breakfast and other than breakfast it was closed.

Thank you very much for reviewing us! The hotel changed in a Hotel Garni at the beginning of April 2015, that is the reason why we only serve breakfast. Our breakfast consists of 70-90 different servings of food every morning, including warm dishes; we are sorry to hear that they where not adequate presented, so that they could be found.... More

The hotel is about 20 minutes of a good hike from the train station, slightly away from the other hotels and shops but what you get in return is an amazing immersion in a winter wonderland. I let the photos speak for themselves. There's only one thing about the room (or it was just the lady next door). At 9pm,... More

I have only best comments to this hotel! Very good location (1 min walk to the slope), very friendly staff, ski room open 24h near reception. The room had balcony with perfect view and king size bad even though I booked single. The dinner was excellent (17-20 o'clock) and included in price. Also available sauna, solarium and small gym.

The hotel is cosy, quiet and welcoming. The room and the bath were small but comfortable. We had a nice balcony. The hotel being small, one cannot expect the sauna to be big. Tip: book in advance and you will enjoy the privacy. The hotel is located in the woods, but close to the sky lift, supermarket, tourist info office...... More

Great hotel, manager/owner is a legend. Good food, metres from the ski field and friendly staff. Recommended by the 3 New Zealanders who stayed there. Free wifi in the lobby made all the difference. If your looking for a place to stay a couple of nights close to the ski field, this is a no brainer
