So after a year off I decided to check out yet another ugh residence in hopes that the level of service has changed for the better.
So... The verdict:
The room - cgh standard which is very high. Nice cozy well equipped. As always an apartment which is advertised as 2-4 is really for 2. Perhaps 3. With a pinch even a family of 2+2. But not 2 couples or 4 singles.
Location: very good. The ski out is straightforward. The ski in as mentioned in other reviews is a bit challenging especially for novices. The rental shop is pretty far but the shop makes up for it with shuttle rides. A bit of a hassle but livable.
Service: big improvement. Great reception and overall front desk service led by Sebastian the Great.
Spa and pool: top class. Just would be nice if hot tub were really hot and not a warm one.
Cheapskates: still. One roll of toilet paper for the week. One garbage bag. One small bottle of liquid soap. Really?!?! Cost of towel for use in spa: 5 Euros
Lasting impression: a new wrinkle on the inventory count. On the day of departure a front desk member actually comes into your apartment and counts the utensils in front of your eyes!! how much more humilating can things get?
