Just back from 5 days in hotel Baren. We went over new year to try to get some skiing in. Snow wasn't great but that was situation all over switzerland. However, if you are going to ski I would not recommend you stay here. It took us two hours in total every day to get up to the slopes involving a walk to the train station and about three trains up. The room was nice and price was reasonable. There was a whiff of the geriatric ward about the place though so if you're looking for a cool apres ski destination with beautiful people this isn't it! also don't go for the half board as the food with this package is pretty bad and there is no choice. the restaurant and pizzeria downstairs are okay though. Inexplicable is the profusion of teddy bears everywhere and a bizarre wood carving of a muscular man taking off his jocks on the wall by the stairs and then a display of said shorts with the caption Shwingenclub or something. Maybe it's just that I don't speak German... Overall though the staff and owners were really nice. the breakfast was great and we had a great time. It was really cozy. watch out for the sauna though if you are the shy type. I had forgotten the swiss like to do it naked. I was out of there in a flash when I realised!
