Ottimo personale, accogliente e gentile. Servizio di cortesia ottimo.Ogni giorno ricevere il buongiorno e la buonanotte e una coccola meravigliosa.
È il mio sesto soggiorno ad Alpen Palace e tutte le volte che ci ritorno vivo un'atmosfera unica e magica. Si vivono momenti di serenita e relax accompagnati dallo staff sempre molto professionale. È talmente tutto bello che alla fine della vacanza pensi già a quando doverci ritornare...ed è quello che mi è successo negli ultimi 6 anni.
Ein kleines charmantes Hotel, kulinarisch spannend, facettenreich und auf sehr hohem Niveau, die Mitarbeiter haben eine hohe Dienstleistungsbereitschaft - jederzeit gerne wieder
