We stayed at the Hotel Laret in order to ski the Samnaun/Ischgl ski area. We were with a group of 11 friends who visit the Alps every winter and try to find less known ski resorts.
This hotel is small, friendly and run by a dedicated young family. Our room, in the newer part of the hotel, was one of the best we have ever stayed in over the years of ski vacations: large, with comfortable beds, excellent storage space, bright new bathroom with lots of shelves, terrific view of the mountains and valley. Christian or Conny Metz-Jenal, the owners, drove us to the double gondola in the next village every day where we gained access to the large ski area. We were able to ski back to within 200m or so from the hotel. There is also good free ski bus service. The staff was friendly and the breakfast and dinner very satisfactory, although the soups, in particular, were too salty for our taste. There is internet service for a small fee, but I could only access it from the public areas, not from the bedroom. One small quibble is that there is no common living room area in which to gather with friends. The bar is well-frequented but is quite small.
The Samnuan ski resort is little known by Americans, perhaps because it is not too easy to reach, unless you drive yourself. It is well worth discovering with plenty of terrain: you ski on both the Swiss side and over to the Austrian resort of Ischgl.
The Hotel Laret is in a quiet village with a couple of bars, a few small hotels and shops and a market. The hotel does not have spa facilities but there is a nice public indoor pool in the village. In summer it would be an excellent place for hiking and mountain biking.
Overall, everyone was very satisfied with the hotel, feeling almost like family members by the end of the week.
