We stayed in this hotel February 2013 for a ski holiday with Nielsen and had rooms 14 and 15.
Room 15 was fine, it was spacious, twin beds fairly comfortable, had a nice hot shower but a bit scruffy round the edges as you would expect from a budget hotel. Our friends had Room 14 which was completely different!! 14 was ALOT smaller/cramped and the beds were uncomfortable (they described it as a park bench). So a bit of of a lottery for what room you get!
There was also housekeeping each day which was a bonus.
If you are a light sleeper, don't stay here! The hotel is extremely noisy throughout the night due to its central location. it didn't bother me personally, but others in the group found it hard to sleep. Its perfect for a group that will be enjoying the nightlife.
Breakfast was good for a budget hotel, we got there first thing most mornings and there was plenty of cereal, yoghurts, fruit, ham, cheese and toast with butter/jam.
There is a ski store, but not locked so if you have your own skis and want to make sure they are safe we needed to carry them up three flights of stairs to our rooms which was a bit of a pain.
The ski bus stop is right outside. In contrary to the last review we didn't have to wait long at all at the first lifts, but again we got up there early (9.30am approx.)
Overall, the hotel is what you expect - you get what you pay for. I didn't think this hotel was any different to other basic ski accommodation - if this is what you are used too and don't mind noise I would recommend it.
