“Very Good Hotel For 3 star”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2011

We were two couples and spent one night at this hotel in July before continuing on Transalpina.
The hotel is clean, large rooms with large comfortable beds and they also have a balcony. The views are incredible and staff was very helpful. Very well priced, quite cheap, probably as it was off season. We haven't tried the restaurant as we ate at different ones. There are plenty to choose from in walking distance. So don't listen to malicious reviews - it is incredible value for money and if food is overpriced, just go to a different restaurant.

I stayed at this 3* hotel as part of a big group between 1 - 3July 2011. I will make it simple:
PROs: rooms are clean,bedding quality is good, with cable TV, minibar (they fill it on request), great view from the balcony!
CONs:
The ventilation in the room is terrible - there was always cigarette smoke in the room but we could leave the windows open to get fresh air.
Bathroom was not cleaned properly - hairs in the bathtub; there is no hairdryer.
The restaurant can get a bit crowdy but the food they serve is of the worst quality:
- we got 2 times hairs in the salad and they were so cheeky as to put it on our bill. I went to the restaurant manager, he apologized at least, said they will compensate for this by the end of our stay, and guess what? they did NOTHING. Typical amateur hoteliers.
- The portions are incredibly small for the money they charge; the traditional desert 'papanasi' were just ok, but ate better in places without a 3* licence.
- the breakfast was served in a dirty saloon with a nice view to the mountains. The salami & bacon were of the cheapest quality, the omlet was overcooked and looked as it was made of powder, there were no boiled eggs, and no fresh salads (at the small shop nextdoor tomatoes were under 1 Euro/kg and for charging us 40 euros/ night they could have included 1 tomato...). They were just trying to make the most money with cheap food, and rubbish service. This is not a 3* hotel, and i plan to stay a week in that area in August but I would not stay there again. Even the 4* hotel in Ranca is cheaper than this 3* hotel.

Overall, the location is absolutely gorgeous, the TransAlpine route (67C) is breathtaking with incredible landscapes, and the roads are in very good condition - brand new!
Hotel Onix - very disappointing, I will not recommend it and i will never stay there again! There are better places to stay in Ranca were they don't try to cheat you and take you for a fool, just because you come from the city and you can afford it.

It is the second time I arrive in Ranca and the first time in the summer.

The hotel is situated at the beggining of the first sky slope in Ranca and from what I remember is expensive during the sky season. However, during the summer it is cheap. The hotel has very nice and big rooms and a very nice decoration on the stairs/lobby.

The staff was very nice.
