Loved the location and meeting Walter was the highlight! After hearing his stories I can almost hear the laughter in the bar from years gone by. However...as sad as it is..those days are gone, I think the hotel needs some TLC to bring it back to where is was when I'm assuming Rick Steves gave it a raving review. The view from our room was breathtaking and the town adorable but the rooms could be cleaner and something should be done about the strong smell of kerosine downstairs. The shared bathroom was freezing as well as the rooms which were suppose to have heat starting at 10 pm but ours never came on...all in all it was ok but I would not stay there again!
