We chose to stay at the Hotel Armin via Crystal Ski and based on previous reviews. The hotel is very well positioned for either ski or summer holidays as it is near the centre of town, close to the ski lifts and hiking trails.
The hotel offers pristine cleanliness and excellent service from staff. The breakfast is well presented and has plenty of selection for all appetites. The evening meals are five courses with a couple of options per course and the option to choose pasta or a grill if you do not like the selection. The hotel featured a Tyrolean special menu mid-week which had a great range of regional specialities. The wine selection is excellent with regional options and well-priced. Only a minor gripe but they do not serve tap water at dinner so you have to buy bottled however they will save this for the next night if you do not finish the bottle in one evening (as for the wine too). There is free cake in the afternoon with again regional specialities (strudel, sacher torte, etc).
The spa facilities are clean, peaceful and practical - the sauna and steam rooms are free/included but you have to pay a small supplement for the jacuzzi/whirlpool. The showers featured aromatherapy which was a nice touch.
The rooms are warm, well-sized and with balconies. They are cleaned promptly and very thoroughly each day with fresh towels given. Lots of storage space for kit and equipment.
For skiers, the hotel offers a morning half-hourly minibus service to the town's main gondola stations although it is just a 5 min walk to the nearest. It is also near a very good family-run ski hire shop (Olga's) and just a few minutes from the main apres ski bars near the end of the ski pistes. At the end of the day, skiers can take the ski path behind the hotel (from the Corvara side of the Sella Ronda only) to ski to within a couple of minutes of the hotel door - almost doorstep skiing!
The best thing about this hotel is the staff who offer the highest levels of traditional service, both at the reception desk and also for bar/restaurant services. There is something really special about this hotel - the management and staff take services extremely seriously with a personal touch which is far beyond many larger and more expensive establishments. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
