This hotel is a pretty tired place which could do with a bit of renovation! There are a number of positives and negatives here. We visited Bardonecchia hot on the heels of an excellent holiday in Pila which probably clouds my judgement slightly.
First of all the positives, excellent and very pleasant staff, with good English spoken on the whole. The beds were comfortable and the room had a good shower. Contrary to the previous review there is a ski room here in the basement accessed via a lift.
The negatives - paper thin walls, we were woken up a few times by our 'neighbours' visiting the toilet and the other neighbour listening to peppa pig all night!
The food here is not great. Each time I have visited Italy previously I have found the food to be wonderful but even by British standards it could only be classed as woeful. The food was often lukewarm and had the feel of being reheated and not cooked from fresh. There was usually a choice of three starters and three mains. The best part of the 4 course meal was invariably the antipasti buffet - this in itself was an issue because at 7.30 the buffet would open and by 7.35 it would be empty - no doubt due to everyone else feeling that this was the best part of the meal too. The drinks are not cheap but not overly expensive either 4euro for a small bottle of beer or 5euro for a large bottle.
Other relatively minor issues included he safe being locked in the open position and the chest of drawers not having any 'runners' and therefore unusable.
The location here is OK a 10 minute walk to the main ski area, with the main part of the town 5 mins in the other directon. We decided to leave our skis at the hire shop each evening for an additional 7euro each for the week - well worth it as even a 10 min walk with skis (or 5 mins if you use the bus) after a hard days skiing is not ideal.
Overall I enjoyed bardonecchia despite the hotel - not because of it.
