On the plus side, the hotel is excellently located. The ski lift is just a few minutes away on foot.
There are automated blinds for the window, so you can sleep in complete darkness.
Showering is possible in the room and in a shared shower is available in the hall, so you don't need to queue!
Parking is available for hotel guests. You'll need to take a turn on the roundabout to get in though, as you'll need to get out of your car to open the gate - something you don't want to do while traversing the road.
In terms of food, the hotel's breakfast is decent. For dinner, there's a very good Chinese restaurant in a radius of 500m around the hotel, as well as several Italian / French restaurants.
On the negative side: during our 4 day stay, the hotel lobby & restaurant suffered from a strong smell. The rooms were not affected though, but it certainly didn't invite to stay during the day or consider having dinner in the hotel restaurant.
