The hotel itself looks older and not what you would expect from the outside, but don't let that fool you. It was an excellent stay with a very friendly and helpful staff.
Our check in was simple and easy with Aline patiently answering all of our questions and explaining each of the dining options and amenities they offer. She was very helpful and a delight to deal with after a day of traveling.
Our room was small with what appeared to be all hand crafted wood from walls to ceiling, which seemed odd at first but quickly added to the environment of the beautiful view of the Matterhorn we had from our patio, and overall was really quite cozy at night while relaxing before bed. The bathroom was modern and very clean. Storage was limited though if you're traveling with a lot of luggage.
I got some great advice and a few laughs from Benno at the front desk regarding a late in the day hike we were about to attempt, and excellent service from Tania (or Tania) as our server in their restaurant Schaferstube. A restaurant I would highly recommend.
The lower levels of the hotel surprisingly hid a very modern and comfortable pool and spa area, and a well equipped gym/work out area.
Overall a very enjoyable stay within a quick walk to the main part of town and everything else you'll want to do. Like I said, more than meets the eye.
