Similar to a lot of buildings in Andorra - built into the hillside so on various levels. Having said that there is a lift but only to two flights of external steps below the reception. The info pack does warn about steepness etc. so no surprise and we were fortunate to have an apartment on the same level as the reception. But.... the two flights up were constantly ice covered and there only seemed to be one man, with very basic equipment, to clean the snow and there was no gritting of any sort. The apartments went on for another few floors so I don't know what one does then!
The apartment itself was very clean and well kept during our stay. Internet was excellent (but extra). All specified equipment was there except the radio/CD player and the hob was so slow that it really was useless. We left a small pan of water on full blast just to test and after 30 minutes it still hadn't boiled! Accommodation was small, we were only two adults in an apartment for four, which would have been very, very cramped. Noise from adjoining apartments was also a bit of an issue with water, waste and bodily fluids easily audible through the walls.
We had a car so could drive to the lifts which are close but far enough down a steep slope if you are walking in ski gear. On site facilities are limited to a restaurant which was under new management and average at best but perhaps it will pick up once things settle down. There is a good selection of other restaurants within 10/15 minutes but do beware of the Andorran habit of sprinkling rock salt on red meat just before they serve it. Takes the edge of a good steak!!
