We stayed here for two days before heading to Val d'Isere (to nurse our jet lag before skiing, since we are from the US).
The location of this hotel is fantastic. There are not many good hotels in the old city. The hotel is next to the old armory and a church. It is a walk up the hill from downtown, but medieval cites were built on hills.
The room was typical European size, but the bed was comfortable and the bathroom good size.
Really the best thing about this hotel is the location, location, location....also it has a really great restaurant. The fondue was authentic and delicious.
The staff were helpful and courteous. A very pleasant experience all around.
