Liked: Room comfort
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Well-intentioned hotel. In practice the maintenance level is not good. For example, the gym does not work. Air conditioners were out of order and I changed rooms. No bedding is being changed. Shuttle to the ski resort at low frequency. The food is reasonable. Booking a taxi through the receptionist at the hotel costs twice ... The sauna is good. The price is good. And the staff is nice except for the person who booked the taxi ...

I did not like the temperature of the pool (27*C). It is cold for the kids. The first bus to return from the ski center is at 15:45. It is too late. Other hotels have return busses starting at 14:00 every 30min. In the morning we had to rush to the bus to get a place to sit, since they don't have transportation every 30min, but every hour. The credit should be given the price that is lower than other hotels.
