We stayed here for 3 nights and skied Bardonecchia for 3.5 days. The hotel is right on the slopes and is only 1 hour from Turin airport. There is a underground car park which you get to by going to the left of the hotel, almost towards the ski lift and then down into the basement. The hotel charges €5 per day for car parking. There is WiFi available, although it was a little flaky in our room. The hotel has it's own ski room which is again down in the basement. The basement is a bit of a maze so I would suggest you wander round to get your bearings before you put your ski boots on! There are also a couple of ski hire shops that have exits into the basement. There is a nice amount of space for sitting around in the evenings and the rooms are perfectly acceptable. It is a 20 min walk into Bardonecchia, although there are a couple of decent restaurants on the way in. We waited a long time to get somewhere to eat on a Saturday night as everywhere was very busy. It also took about an hour to get out of Bardonecchia on Sunday night at 6pm as everyone seemed to be going back to Turin.
If you ask the hotel reception they will give you a form to take to the ski pass office which will give you a discount, although you need to buy at least a 3 day pass, you also have to buy this from the office in town. They won't accept the form at the office on the slopes!
Breakfast was continental and perfectly acceptable with plenty of coffee (ask for a jug!) and a large selection of breads and pastries.
