We had a week at Penzion Lipa for a ski trip in January and I'd thoroughly recommend it - especially after seeing and hearing about some of the other hotels from my ski class mates. The location is a little off the main drag but perhaps only a 5 min walk (it seemed more when you're carrying skis so I'd recommend renting a locker at the Intersport on the slopes for 30 euros / week). Our room (8) was in the eaves and was really good - nicely decorated and a big, comfy bed with velux roof window above. Good balcony with views to the alps. It was always really warm which was great after a day skiing - and the shower was excellent , if a bit temperamental with the hot/cold (shame there was no bath). Satellite TV and minibar were fine.
Food was served in the basement which sounds worse then it was. Not sure why they don't want you to eat in the conservatory with other dinner guests! However, nicely decorated restaurant in the basement and good food (better then most hotels in town I understand). Good choice of starters and mains all of pretty high standard. There's also an extensive pizza menu - the ones I tired were excellent. Breakfast was a cold and hot buffet and was delicious.
We booked this last minute through Crystal Ski for under £300 each, including flights, transfers and half-board accomodation. As it was so cheap I was expecting something altogether less well-appointed and I was extremely pleasantly surprised - this hotel is far better then many other 4* hotels I've stayed in in the UK and Europe. The friendliness of the owner family was also appreciated. Altogether a fantastic place to stay. Many of the other hotels in the town looked pretty grim from the outside so we were sure we'd made the right choice!
