I stayed here for four nights with my partner on our first ski holiday. The drive from Geneva airport was about 1 hour, we arrived at the hotel right in the centre of town. The reception staff were very helpful and gave us the key to our room. We also enquired about hiring ski lockers (€20 deposit, located in the basement) and ski lift passes which the hotel obtain for us and had ready and waiting for us the next morning before skiing.
The room was on the first floor and overlooked a roof and the rest of the building. You could still see the mountains if you looked up but we were grateful not to be overlooking the square as heard it can be pretty noisy at night. The hotel has been recently refurnished and it shows throughout, it was clean very warm (a bit too warm as we turned the radiators off). The room was a decent size and had a bath and a shower which was great for a soak after skiing. The room also has a fridge/mini bar which was great for storing our salads and ham in when we wanted a snack. There was plenty of storage space for hanging clothes and shelfs/coat hooks which was good for all our ski gear. The beds were so comfortable and we had the best nights (quiet) sleep.
Breakfast was a simple buffet style - toast, pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereal and a small hot selection (scrambled eggs, sausage and ham). This was completely adequate and coffee/tea comes from a machine in the corner of the restaurant (all self service). It was quick and no waiting around which was important when you need to be quick to get out in time for the ski bus.
The ski bus stop is located a couple of minutes walk to the left of the hotel which is great when you have your ski boots on. The busses get very busy around 8.30am so be sure to get out early if you want a full day on the slopes.
We didn't use the restaurant as the selection on the menu was a bit limited for us and as being so centrally located there are so many restaurants around the corner. The hotel also has a roof top pool which we didn't use, its open 2.30pm - 7pm (winter time) and also a solarium.
Overall the hotel was a very pleasant surprise, its not a 4 or 5 star luxury hotel but a great hotel that does what it says on the tin for excellent value.
