First off, this hotel is in a great location in the Alps if you are not interested in staying right downtown. Its on the main road leading to some neat motorcycling, bicycling routes in the Alps. Parking is just across the street, there is a restaurant downstairs, which is very convenient when you're tired and just not interested in going far. The views from the rooms facing the street are just breathtaking. Unfortunately that means a little noise from trucks, buses, and motorcycles trying to make their way uphill. There was no AC but we didn't need it. The rooms were huge by european standards. I was pleasantly surprised and happy to be able to spread out a little. The rooms seemed to be recently remodeled and well kept and VERY clean. THe beds were european firm, the water pressure good, the pillows okay. There was a small flat screen TV attached to a wall so we could swing it out to watch while we were in bed or on the small sofa. There's an elevator in this hotel (yay) which is nice after a long ride! One thing I also liked was that there is a nice path behind the hotel for walking or bicycling that will take you to town, so you don't have to go along the bustling road if you don't want to. The path has some awesome views as well as park benches to enjoy them. Breakfast was okay with a small selection of meats, cheeses, cereals, yogurts, fruits, juices, breads, hard boiled eggs, and coffee (automachine made). We tried dinner here one night but it was a little expensive and the food was just okay. I was a little disappointed in the dinner, especially since the restaurant in the hotel across the street was much cheaper, tasted better, and had a much more welcoming staff..even tho we weren't staying at that hotel! In fact, the gentleman at the front desk offered us a farewell shot of limoncello/grappa before we left! The folks at Hotel des Alpes were nice, polite, helpful, but just not as welcoming as we are used to in Italian locations. I would stay here again.
