The hotel is close to the main station and ski area/gondola. However, being there with a fairly big group of 12 children (most of the 9 years) and 13 adults, we experienced a dreadful service in the reception and bar. However, the personel in the restaurant was really sweet and helpful. The reception "took care" of the children by putting them into the gymnastic room in the 3. basement floor, having one person there to keep them down there in the cellar - without telling the parents. The bar is everything but cosy, unfriendly service and closing at 10 p.m. at some of the evenings. Even though we asked where we could hold a birthday celebration for one of the kids and were directed to the entrance area (and bought all drinks and alcohol from the hotel bar) we were during the celebration asked to leave and go instead again to the 3. basement- which we did not anyway. At the last evening the reception called by phone (!) one of our families while sitting in the restaurant and asked for paying the hotel bill now, even though the family stayed at the hotel the whole next day with plenty of time for paying.The food is of middle quality and the breakfast not adequate and not diversified at all. For sure there is a very heavy acoustical problem over the whole hotel which makes it absolutely impossible in the reception/bar/restaurant and even very small swimming pool area to talk without developing a lot of noise. But the children were told not to "communicate" via tablets and phones, therefore, the noise level was sometimes horrible but we cannot prohibit the children to talk and have fun. Furthermore, the only place with (bad) WiFi is the reception, which makes it even more difficult for everybody.

Dear Sailingnina, thank you very much for your feedback and pointing out the pros and cons from your point of view. We emphasise that we are not a family hotel which takes care of the children during the stay! We ususally do not offer kids animation. Due to the fact that during this period many families with kids enjoyed their holidays in our house we decided to open our gym room to get the children a chance to enjoy themselves. We informed the parents we could find about the new option. We even organized an animator for the following days - without any extra charge. Many of us are parents ourselves and know what kids desire. We know they want to have fun and talk. So we tried our best to give them enough space AND to protect the requirements of our other guests. Since we are a hotel with health center we guarantee our guests quiet nights. Therefore our bar closes at 10 p.m. For your birthday celebration we offered a room with private atmosphere on the fourth floor. Our service staff already had to prepare the Felsencafé for dinner therefore we could not offer this location. Due to organisatorial reasons we beg our guests to pay the evenings before departure. This handling makes the check-out more relaxed for our guests and staff. We feel sorry about the timing of the information. We hope you understand also our point of view and would appreciate to welcome you soon!

Beautiful view from our rooms' terraces, comfortable beds, good food, friendly staff, nice swimming pool and spa, ski storage, nice lobby caffe. No wi fi in rooms, but they were just changing it. Hotel with homy atmosphere.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week during the new years and it was amazing! The hotel is in a great location with the gondola about a 5 min walk just across the street! Nearby is the thermal baths, eurospar, and a few nice shopping and food places. You can also walk 10 min down the hill into the valley to the city center, waterfall, and shopping. Our stay included breakfast, lunch, dinner, which were all very tasty and delicious. Every room in the hotel has a view of either the slopes or the valley. Only downside might be no WiFi in the rooms and TV in the rooms only have 5 English channels which are mostly news. I would very much recommend staying here other than hotels down the hill near the centrum because its a perfect walk to the mountain which would not be so fun walking from down the hill up every morning!
