Historical and expensive hotel, then you have to expect a certain standard for rooms, food quality and service. 1) Rooms: Old, cheap interior, bad standard 2) Food: Just horrible, steaks for 40 Euro is NOT tender, what kind of meat is it actually ? No taste and really chewy meat. Where is the chef ? Who is it ? Awful... More

Many beautifully furnished dining and common rooms throughout the hotel. Wonderful porch overlooking the city. Room 416 – Room style was like an old fashioned dormitory. Small size. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Beds are longer than the wall so you can hit your foot on the wall corner at night. Reading nights are too low & over the bed... More

We went to this hotel in September. Sadly, it was not ski season so it was a complete ghost town. This is a fairly old but charming hotel. Rooms are alright. Kinda small but clean. The shops right in front close at 4pm. Good thing they have a bowling alley and a spectacular spa. Free wifi was offered but the... More

Room 320. Dingy and basic. It is located right over the bar and large TV room. Also close to the front door area where lots of people hang out to smoke. This room had curtains that were torn, just hanging over the bathroom window and holes in the walls where pictures may have been removed and walls never repaired .... More

I have stayed here twice in the last two years but both times have been a delight. Even though it is a little confusing finding one's room there is ample to look at along the way.
