We spent a week at Hotel La Chance and generally enjoyed it. Service is pretty good but could be a bit friendlier. On our day of arrival we missed the last gondola from Aosta and the receptionist kindly arranged a taxi to pick us up.
Try to get a bedroom that overlooks the valley rather than the road. The rooms are a bit small and basic with hard beds, limited storage space, no full length mirror, etc. Bathrooms are equally small with no bath to soak in after a hard day on the slopes! There is however & decent spa area in the hotel which, bizarrely, is free to use before 4pm only. Not exactly customer-centric. It's a nice addition, though, and the treatments are well-priced and pretty good. There is also a really nice lounge area with a roaring fire.
Breakfast was ok, not great. Trying to get a hot cup of coffee or tea was a challenge each morning. The aperitivi were tasty & plentiful each evening (apart from Sunday) - usually made with the leftover ingredients from the previous evening's meal. The 4 course dinners were generally ok - with dishes varying from amazing to dreadful over the course of the week. On my birthday the staff kindly presented me with a cake which was a lovely touch.
Pila is a cracking little ski resort. It's well worth a visit and staying at Hotel La Chance is a good option.
