Very large (800+ clients apparently)in an ugly building presumably designed by east european architects, initially it was not clear to me it was an actual hotel.It is vast inside and crosses 3 buildings, staff v. helpful though kept busy by an older clientele, some speak good english.The room was good, quite big,fully equipped and clean. 3 heated pools, some quite large and mostly empty, could be better if the outside windows could be cleaned more to see what are reasonable views outside. Location, is great for the station, 200m. not for town 500- 1km minimum, the town itself is in a picturesque valley the town itselfthe town itself which looks lovely unlike. on afinal note why do some hotels have 4 people at the door to thank you and send you on your way?
