I was placed in a double room with 2 others and one of them had a couch for a bed. Despite asking to be moved on several occasions and eventually asking for just a... More

Nice location, easily reaching gondola, clean and tidy. Foods are ok. Welcoming personnel. There is a special room for your ski equipments. You can find turkish tea here that is so important for them sometimes. :) I recommend this hotel to everyone.

I'm happy to tell that we have no idea what people are complaining about - the rooms are warm enough, there's hot water in the shower and the staff is nice. Also, there's free WiFi in... More

The best thing about the hotel is by far he location: 3-5 minutes walk to the gondola station. The rooms were clean and the staff was nice and helpful. None of the windows are closing properly. They seem to have improvised some closing mechanism that deteriorated in time, the balcony door was curved wind was blowing through the sides. Our... More
