Stayed here for 3 nights and booked standart room but upgraded to lux room, no. 115. The room was spacy and comfortable although wallpapers do need some refurbishment. We had both breakfast and dinner booked for our stay. Breakfast was of great variety and quality. Dinner during friday and saturday was not so great for us because we always came...

Really beautiful historical hotel. Rooms were nice and the view towards mountain peaks was wonderful. Good food both for the dinner and breakfast. Nice staff. Castro bar is also worth visiting (named after Fidel Castro who stayed at the hotel in the 70s). We were glad we chose this hotel.

Seedy equipment, unfinished lobby, in the room a lot of non-functioning equipment (cabinet, TV, washbasin) ... Last time I was here eight years ago. That time the hotel was repaired, upgraded and rebuilt. The result after eight years is for me measly. Hotel still looks unfinished. Although many of the services are in place, they are evidently offered only that...

Very nice hotel, good spa and beautiful restaurant and bar. Barman a very classy man with old school experience . To get to the slopes you have to use a ski bus or taxi. Hrebenok small mountain is close by.

stayed here for a few days over new years 16/17 and throughly enjoyed it.. the hotel was built in 1904 and is still pretty much in the original condition so exudes old world charm from a time when luxury and splendour were only for the rich and famous.

The location is beautiful. The hotel is very nice looking from outside. But the inside starts to be outdated. Rating this hotel 3/5 is highly related to the price we paid. 188euros for one night: the room was far from being spacious. It was just an average hotel room. For this price you only have a shower which is far...

Dear user Ffff999, thank you for your time you spent by writing review. Price is always based on flexi rate system and depends also on season. It means the soon you make reservation the less is also price. Price ussually raises by selling rooms. We generally offer served 3-course menu, but there is a buffet in case of high occupancy...

Dear User Joseph B, Thank you for your review. You are right, hotel retains its spirit for more than 110 years and has never been closed during this time.
