I had been a regular, staying 6 years in a row every winter, brought friends, family, etc., then a 5 year absense. Last year the hotel was significantly renovated. Beautiful work but no longer that cozy inn feeling. Somebody has to pay for all that work, and it will be you. The restaurant was the best; lots of good food with many choices but last year new chef and new menu. How about calf's brains, horse meat, trout eggs in cream, rabbit, snails, almost everything raw; I could go on and on; the restaurant has been turned into an expensive experiment. The portions of what I could eat were the size of a thimble. I saw many plates going back uneaten. I even talked to some others at tables nearby and they too were shocked at what they got to eat. If you like exotic food then fine but not after a hard day of skiing. I didn't plan on going to El Bulli. In sum, dinner was horrible. Breakfast was good. Ergo, stick to the B & B. Let them sell their experimental food to some other fool. Now the piano man, Nicola, used to be the piano man, and before him Allesandro, but now Nicola is the bellman, front desk clerk, ski shuttle driver, etc. Not much piano playing going on, as you can imagine. The ski shuttle is great in the morning to the Funivia station but in the afternoon near the closing of the lifts forget about it, get your walking boots on. The rooms are a little small but that dark cramped feel from years ago has been corrected. The WiFi is bad. You had to get a new code every three hours. Why? Nobody knows. In any event, it did not work well. I got kicked off many times. I tried other spots in the hotel, they were no better than my room. Pretty much next to useless. Besides the restaurant my chief complaint is the price. You pay a big price for a big price's sake. It is just too much for what you get. Try the other higher rated hotels on this system. You will be much happier.
