There are about eight hotels in Malbun - this one is a good choice, being right at the entrance to the village, and beside the second-last bus stop.
Unfortunately, the entrance is up a flight of steps - awkward with heavy luggage. Unless you can leave it in your car - because there is a ground-level door, at the base of the accommodation block, which also has a lift. If you have to carry your luggage, though, it's rather awkward.
This family-run hotel is very friendly, but it helps to have some German, because few of them speak much English. Still, they'll do their best! The free wi-fi is a bonus, and my single room was large, with French windows leading to a shared balcony with a lovely view of the valley.
I didn't venture into the bar, which was mostly closed while I was there, and very noisy when it was open.
The plumbing is a bit noisy, and you do get some noise from the other rooms, but it wasn't too much of a problem. The bed was a bit hard for my liking - the duvet, however, was very soft, and I ended up taking the duvet from the spare bed to put under me, which worked very well.
The shower operates via a dial - turn in one direction for bath, the other way for shower. Unfortunately, when I did decide to take a shower, I discovered the dial was stuck - at least, I couldn't move it! This was near the end of my stay, so I didn't bother saying anything.
Breakfast was continental, in the old building. I had evening meals there a few times, and the food was very good - except the basic schnitzel (without sauce). Avoid! I can't believe a restaurant would serve anything this dry! Service was friendly, but the prices put me off eating there more often - also the lack of variety, if you get tired of steak and schnitzel. The Hotel Turna, a few minutes up the road, has a much more varied menu, the food is just as good, and the prices are a little better.
Overall, it's a good choice - although the nearby Hotel Gorfion is more kid-friendly, and the Hotel Falknerei hosts a regular falconry display.
