I just went there from Jan 28 to Feb 1. The hotel is right inside the village and is very close to the Gondola. I booked a room but the hotel gave me a loft that has a kitchen, fireplace and balcony. The loft is spacious and cozy when the fireplace is on. (Note: you have to buy those synthetic firewood for $5). The sofa can be converted to two separate single bed which is great for a family with 2 kids. The WiFi is free but it seems it only allows 3 devices to connect per room. The hotel has a decent size of jacuzzi and sauna room. My loft is facing a street. The only thing I don't like about my room is that I can hear the truck plowing snow in the morning. It was very loud. At first I thought there was a plane about to crash. The shampoo and towel are decent quality.
This is my 4th time staying at the Aava and won't be my last. The staff are always available and helpful. It's close to the village core without being noisy. This visit I ended up with an accessible room, which was fine with the exception of me flooding the entire bathroom while taking a shower (completely my fault).
I booked this hotel due to location and the jacuzzi tub was nice, the bed was comfortable a little outdated, but I did not mind.
However, the FRIDGE was so loud, it woke me up every two hours when all I really needed and wanted from this hotel room was a nice solid sleep.
I finally had to pull the breaker on the fridge.
I sleep through storms and I could not sleep through this fridge noise.
Due to this, I would not say it is worth the money. Spend a little more and find one with a newer, quieter fridge!
This hotel is right in the middle of the village. You can shop for groceries and prepare your own meals, or go out to eat at any of the restaurants. Our room had a washer/dryer combo which was great for drying wet gear.
Rooms could use a small safe though.
