Our primary reason for going to the Arlmont was its decent rate and modern design and, of course, the reviews of those having been there and... the good reviews.
Location on the ski-slope and next to the cable car. Good skiing in winter and amazing hikes and treks in summer. Free underground parking. Cloud 9 Spa is open from 15h to 19h, so keep this in mind, as we arrived too late.
We had half-board set-menu dinner which was good but not amazing, as some reviews reported. We are assuming that some days will be better than others. Breakfast buffet was excellent, varied and with a good choice of cereals, fruits, egg dishes, cheeses, meats, breads and the first decent coffee I had in Austria :-) Service as one would expect in this welcoming country: pleasant, polite, professional and excellent. All staff spoke english.
Not only can we recommend this hotel but it is worth staying here if one is in the area. Having said this, prices in summer are great but it is much pricier in winter. We booked through booking.com and while other hotels were cheaper than quoted, this hotel was the same. It is therefore worth checking first, especially as one can directly ask for specific rooms (see below).
We feel we want to say something more on the so-called see-through (frosted) walls to the bathroom. Yes, the bathroom has frosted walls and full glass to the balcony. Our bathroom had the heated towel-rail was at the end side of the big walk-in shower area and it was enough to have a towel draped over it for privacy. Without a towel it was still difficult to see any details of the person inside, just a pink shadow. However, having said that, we did not put the lights on in the bathroom as the lights from the room gave a feeling of candle light in the bathroom and we quite liked that. However, there are rooms that have less privacy and we would therefore advise that you ask reception to get a room with a shower room that gives you more privacy.
While there were not many guests, we were given a room with one of the worse views, onto the cable-car entrance. We complaint and were given a room with a view on the mountains and golf-course (as we wanted). With so few guests they should have given us a better room without us having to complaint first and ask for another room.
There are family suites with two separate bedrooms and these are definitively worth asking for when either a group of 3-4 friends or a family with children, as this option is cheaper than getting two separate rooms.
