We stayed there for one week from Jan 18th 2009. Booked thru Crystal ski. A lovely small family run hotel. (Only 7 rooms!) Rooms are small but perfectly adequate,very cute and feels very homely. Decor good and very comfortable. Hotel is spotless and we had our room cleaned and bed made up every morning. Bath towels good size and hand towels are like our teatowels but plentiful. Shower works well and plenty of hot water to soak in the tub at nite, you can squeeze two in the bath at a push! Very good self serve buffet style breakfast, lovely croissants! Hotel in excellent location, on a quiet side street literally 4 minutes walk from main 6 man chairlift. Staff very friendly and helpful. Boot & ski room in basement which is heated and the hotel has a good sized lift despite only being 3 stories. Picture on website does not do it justice, lovely interior. Also there it has internet access. All shops and ski hire shops only 2 minutes from hotel. This hotel is rated 2* but do not be put off by other reviews, we are SO picky about hotels when we go on holiday and we loved this one, we kind of hate to rave about it as its Cervinia's best kept secret and we want to go back anytime, but it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Best for couples/friends only not families. Amenities nearby: Restaurant below the hotel, 'La Nicchia', although recommended elsewhere, we avoided it after one visit, very average food and expensive for what it was, no ambiance, look elsewhere for better food and prices. (Try the Restaurant 'Jour et Nuit' up the street from the hotel, owned by one of the local ski instructors, the meat dishes cooked in a traditional wood fired oven are to die for and for an extra 20euros on the bill compared to 'La Nicchia' it was like comparing a burger bar to Gordon Ramsay's place! Go there, you WILL go back!). You also HAVE to go across the street from the hotel to the cafe-Bar 'La Samovar'- if you love coffee and italian pastry this is for you- open from 8am till midnight, superb pastries, fab coffee, lovely tea infusions and relaxing decor and good music to unwind to, not rowdy, nice relaxing cafe/bar, their 'Bombardinos' are yummy, and they do gorgeous teatime snacks!
