We stayed there over the New Year's period, when everything else is so overpriced. Communication and payment was easy and swift. The lady who met us to give us the keys was very kind. The hotel is just 5 min walk from the city centre in a very quiet neighbourhood, where you can park your car free of charge (very important considering the situation this winter when the city centre and most of the small squares and streets around were turned into paid parking lots). The apartment is not luxury but has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. It is very clean and warm as well (not the same in many other locations around). Definitely the best we could get for the money we paid.

Excellent directions and communication when booking. A lovely warm welcome when we arrived in the early hours of the morning. i was delighted to see after a days skiing there was a secure room to leave ski boots and skiis and then a lift if we couldn't face the stairs upto our apartment!! PLenty of hot water and an area to cook/self cater if we had the energy!! Nearby, lovely resaturants/bars excellent value for money. Overall had a fab time, made much more enjoyable by an easy, friendly booking for apartment. Would love to return again sometime soon!
