We stayed 3 nights, in suites. Amazing views from the bedrooms, and from the dining room. And the hotel is gorgeous to look at. My room was comfortable, but there was a serious issue of sound leakage from the room above; I could clearly hear the conversation of the occupants, and also later their "activities". Not good for a luxury...

We enjoyed our stay here very much. First of all - the staff was very helpful, and doing their best to serve us. The room was excellent -...

Not sure who is writing all positive reviews so therefore I'm posting my experiences with this hotel: -Building is not maintained for the past years. This is a huge issue. The first room we got had a very noisy toilet. It flushed every 5 min and we informed the reception about this. They sent maintainance which could not resolve it....

The hotel was clean, modern and with an excellent view, when there wasn't fog. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they offered us details about the excursions that we could do, what restaurants to try and answered all of our questions. We bought all our trips from the hotel. The breakfast was limited, but sufficient, and the food in...

Hotel was clean comfortable and modern. Staff were friendly and helpful. Floors in rooms have built in heaters and jacuzzi tubs which were quite relaxing after a long day outdoors int he cold! It is possible to walk to town but it is a long walk and uphill on the return trip.

First of all, don't book through their website since they will charge more for converting the currency - booking. com is usually the same price and there are no problems at all.
