We stayed for one week on the side of the building facing the train tracks (mentioned by everyone else). Never got woken up by it and really didn't find it to be that loud at all, even during the day when trains are more frequent. One of the toilets got backed up, but they fixed it within 15 minutes (probably because we stayed at an off-peak time). They change towels on Tuesdays, but otherwise it's up to you for cleaning. There are also some travel-size toiletries provided (shampoo, conditioner, lotion). The living room furniture also seemed to be fairly new, comfy couches for after the slopes. Overall it exceeded my expectations (though they were pretty low given some of the reviews on here). Certainly not 5 star accommodation, but also not nearly as bad some reviews suggest.
