We booked last minute to stay for 2 nights, hence why the hefty price tag I would imagine.
The Alpina is fine as long as you don't pay for than 80 euros a night, it is certainly nowhere near worth the 200 euros per night that we paid!
The hotel is very central, good location, that's the best thing about it. Reception staff are slow and we got stuck getting in and out of the car park on every occasion and no-one on hand to assist.
Rooms are very basic and very dated with a very small double bed. They do however have a decent sized balcony with great views of the mountain.
I think the walls are obviously quite thin as a lot of noise from adjoining rooms and unfortunately our floor always seemed to smell of sick which was very unpleasant.
Worth if if you can pay a cheaper rate otherwise forget it.
