Been there in 2012 and going to be on march 2017. Why is it perfect? * VERY close to the gondola (which is the most important part. Believe me you don't want to walk with the equipment more than necessary) * Food is fine. Especially the breakfast is very convenient. You can eat in a restaurant later if you like..... More

I was placed in a double room with 2 others and one of them had a couch for a bed. Despite asking to be moved on several occasions and eventually asking for just a... More

Nice location, easily reaching gondola, clean and tidy. Foods are ok. Welcoming personnel. There is a special room for your ski equipments. You can find turkish tea here that is so important for them sometimes. :) I recommend this hotel to everyone.
