We picked this hotel because we had never skiied at this area before and the hotel is closed to the village ski lift. As the rest of the other reviewers wrote, it is an old hotel, dated back to the 80s in my opinion.
Our room has balcony, is located at the side of the building, facing the playground/parking place/other residentials. Everything in the room is very basic but it is clean and tidy. Bathroom is also very simple, had a good laugh when i saw the hairdryer, thought it was a child play toy...small and powerless.
Lobby area, in my opinion, is not cozy. With old couches and bar across the check in-out desk. Breakfast is ok, no warm continental breakfast. With spectacular view of the alps. The dining area is always busy both during b'fast and dinner time. Wifi is only at the lobby area.
Hotel also has a separate storage room for our skiing equipments, it's all lock up, unless you have 2 euro :) And they also provide a shuttle to the ski lift and back, which is very handy i find it, no hussle in bringing yr own ski equipments and climbing uphill to the ski lift :)
I am not very sure if there is a swimming pool in the hotel, but we had been given vouchers to swim at the local public swimming pool not far from the hotel.
tidy and clean room
everything is under walk distance
very friendly staffs
The weekly menu is superb (during our stay)
Housekeeping always comes very late in the afternoon, very often after skiing in the morning, we came back to the still messy hotel room
old hotel and some stuffs are worn out
