We were there with a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids) for 5 nights beginning of april.
Rooms: We had 2 connecting rooms where you could easily sleap 6 people. The rooms are big and very clean. Comfort is basic but everything you need is there. No bath, only shower, but that was no issue for us. A big positive is the floor as there are no carpets. The rooms have a balcony as well but you don't really use it as the hotel is surrounded by huge terraces where you can enjoy the sun all day long.
Restaurant: The food is simple but good. For dinner, the first course is typically a choice of pasta or soup. Second course is fish or meat. Again, nothing fancy but well done. That's all you need after a day of snow. The wines are very affordable.
Breakfast is basic with croissants and pistolets. They could use some choice of bread, I think. Some cold cuts and fruits are available but you have to ask for it. Coffees and chocolate milk are selfservice but the machine is excellent...you are in Italy, so you kind of expect a good coffee.
Bar: A very simple set-up but very honest prices for the drinks. Try the aperol spritz or one of the schnapses. If you take an aperitive, they will serve some delicious cold cuts with that.
Service: The whole family is extremely friendly and helpful. You really feel at home.
Location: Excellent as it is next to the chairlift. Opposite to the hotel you can rent your ski material. Several slopes arrive at the hotel, so ideal for kids.
The only issue could be arriving at the hotel as it is situated at 1750 meters so it could be tricky in fresh snow...don't forget the chains. Also if you come from the north, from Switserland, the Splugenpass is closed in wintertime, so you have to go around Lugano, which is a serious detour.
The village is 20 min down the road on foot or you could walk up to the "baita del sole bar" and then take the lift right into the village, which is a nice little cosy place with some nice bars as well.
All in all, a great place to stay, thanks to Marco and the whole family.
