We arrived on the 29th January to be greeted by a very friendly reception staff, we went through the booking in formalities very quickly and were allocated our room all within the first 5 minutes. The room which was in the 'new 'wing was adequate not in the luxury class -- but hey, we didn't pay a lot, the big plus was it had a bath! The room was clean and everything worked. Now if you are expecting a traditional Austrian Hotel with bar / stube and roaring fire, you will be disappointed, this is an older Hotel with a peculiar layout.The swimming pool is next to the dining room - which had a little problem with the heating when we were there. The bar is in the dining room, fine for drinks with your meal, but the big problem is that there is nowhere to sit in the evenings at all except a drafty corridor. So you normally end up back in your room after your evening meal. The hotel is run by an enthusiastic Hungarian team, the majority of guests are eastern European so the food is biased towards them. The food is well cooked and with a choice. The food could be hotter and it would have been good if the plates were warmed.
All in all a good budget hotel. The skiing and the snow were great and as another contributor says seek out Vilmos for good instruction in good English.
